“An Individualized Smile Makeover can Brighten Your Life”
What is a Smile Makeover?
Whether or not you choose to have cosmetic dentistry treatments is a matter of personal choice. Only you know the tiny imperfections that make you feel self-conscious about your smile. With our smile makeover services, we can re-create your smile to help you achieve the results you desire.
During your initial consultation, you’ll sit down with one of our cosmetic dentists and discuss the different aspects of your teeth that you would like changed. There are very few requests that we can’t meet. Even if you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, or missing entirely, we can create a smile makeover treatment to meet your specific needs and improve the health of your teeth and gums.
After discussing the details of how you envision your smile, one of our cosmetic dentists will present a treatment plan designed just for you and will start you down the path to a dazzling smile that radiates confidence.
smile makeover procedures
Some of the common procedures involved in a smile makeover include:
Porcelain veneers are a simple and easy way to correct crooked, stained, or chipped teeth. This option has a lot of flexibility and often produces the most dramatic results. Often referred to as “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can be placed quickly through a relatively simple procedure. And since porcelain veneers have been shown to maintain their brilliance and strength over time, they are a popular option for patients interested in a smile makeover.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants or “Teeth Replacements” are the most natural-looking tooth-replacement option. Dental implants are composed of a titanium implant post placed into the jawbone to support tooth restorations, such as dental bridges, porcelain crowns, or dentures and provide the same strength as your natural tooth roots.
Porcelain crowns serve not only a restorative purpose but a cosmetic purpose as well. If the structure of your natural tooth is compromised enough that it jeopardizes the health of your tooth roots, a porcelain crown may be placed on top of the tooth. This will create elegant teeth as well as protect the function of the bite surface.
If you are dissatisfied with the color of your teeth and don’t feel the need to change the shape or alignment of your smile, teeth whitening may be the answer for you. Performed in our office or with at-home whitening trays, teeth whitening can provide the smile makeover results you are looking for.
Invisalign® could be an important part of your smile makeover plan. For someone whose teeth and smile is misaligned or crooked, Invisalign® offers a simple solution. Instead of the conventional metal braces used in orthodontics, Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners to discreetly straighten your teeth. Dr. Amanda Sindledecker is a qualified Invisalign® provider and will help create a plan that is personalized to your needs.
There are many people who are unhappy with the way their gums are and how they affect the look of their smile. As a result, these people may choose to have a gum contouring procedure to help improve their appearance.
Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
The best candidate for a smile makeover is any adult who has cosmetic and/or functional flaws that are of concern. Some people choose to have a smile makeover because their teeth don’t fit well in their mouth. Some people undergo treatment because the radiance and shape of their teeth do not accurately represent their personality.
Generally speaking, we like to perform the cosmetic aspect of a smile makeover after assuring that your oral health is in good shape. We may need to perform certain restorative treatments or periodontal care prior to the beginning of any cosmetic procedures, but most people are able to achieve the beautiful smile they desire.
Smile Makeover Results
The results of a smile makeover range from adding radiance to the smile by removing stains to straightening teeth – or making teeth appear straight – with treatments like Invisalign or porcelain veneers. The physical results of a smile makeover are just the beginning.
When your smile is bright; when your teeth are straight and in great condition – no chips or cracks –you feel good. This aspect of a smile makeover makes individual results most rewarding. Whether we consult with a patient to bring all of their teeth into harmony by lengthening one or more of them, or we perform teeth straightening treatment and then teeth whitening, the bottom line is that the results of whatever treatment we perform are going to allow that person’s smile to fully portray their personality.
Smile Makeover Recovery
The details and length of recovery after a procedure are determined by the extent of work completed in a single visit. Not all smile makeovers are completed in a day or single process. Sometimes, one concern is addressed at a time before we move on to the next. For example, if tooth replacement is necessary, we may set the foundation with dental implants before affixing lifelike restorations. This process, which may take a few months, allows for implant posts to integrate fully into the jawbone.
All things considered, most of the procedures that we perform to enhance the functionality and beauty of the smile do not require downtime. Even dental implant patients are able to return to work and other activities within a day or two.
When you consult with Dr. Maxine or Dr. Amanda Sindledecker, the time that is needed for you to recover from recommended treatments will be discussed prior to the day of treatment.
Cost of a Smile Makeover
Like recovery, the overall cost of a smile makeover depends on how many procedures are needed to achieve the desired outcome. Details that also factor into final cost includes the type of materials used to bring out the best in your smile, and the availability of dental benefits if any.
