Three common reasons patients choose a smile makeover

Important event: When you have to look your best for pictures at a wedding or your high school reunion, a smile makeover might be the perfect extra touch you need.

Dream job interview: You want this job and you will do everything you can to get it. You do not want to be remembered as the candidate with the crooked teeth or the gummy smile.

Need a change: After a traumatic event like a death or a divorce, some people like to move on with a fresh look. The perfect smile can do wonders for self-confidence.

How the smile makeover process works

When you come to our office looking for a smile makeover, the first thing we will do is take an impression of your teeth and various other measurements. This will show us everything we need to know and will assist us in planning the transformation of your smile.

From there, we can show you what your options are for achieving the results you desire. This can involve bonding, veneers, bridges, crowns, implants and/or teeth whitening.

Working together, we will come up with a plan that makes sense for you, your needs and your budget, and we will make it happen.

Some smile makeover can be done in one visit. Others require multiple visits. Either way, when we are done, you will have the smile you always wanted and you will feel great about yourself.

Advantages of having a smile makeover

The biggest advantage of having a smiling face will be the psychological impact. When you look better, you will feel better about yourself, have more confidence, take more chances and smile more.

Smile Makeover Q&A

How much of your smile can you make over?

It depends on the nature of the problem and the required treatment. If a single tooth is ruining your smile, your treatment plan might involve only addressing that one tooth. If an entire arch requires correcting, then your treatment plan will likely involve altering multiple teeth in the arch.

Who cannot get a full smile makeover?

Almost all patients are able to receive a smile makeover. Depending on the number of teeth that are remaining, the quality and the amount of jaw bone you have, and your overall health, there may be limitations in the treatment options available. But something can almost always be done to help achieve the results you are looking for.

What are some common smile makeover procedures?

A crown placed over a front tooth that has been damaged in an accident. Working closely with our laboratory technicians we can achieve a perfect colour match to your other teeth. No one will be able to tell that anything has been done.
 
A bridge can be placed to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth look and feel like your natural teeth.
 
Veneers can be placed over crooked teeth to straighten and whiten your smile. Similar to crowns, we work directly with the laboratory technicians to ensure that we achieve a seamless result that both looks natural and corrects your aesthetic concern.
 
Teeth whitening to get rid of coffee or nicotine stains, reverse signs of aging and brighten up your smile.

Is a smile makeover dangerous?

Not at all. Your oral health and overall physical health are taken into consideration every step of the process. If any aspect of a smile makeover could compromise your well-being in any way, we will not perform it or we will modify the process accordingly.

How much does a smile makeover cost and is it covered by my insurance?

Many factors impact the cost of a smile makeover including the state the teeth or gums that need attention, the desired result, and the extent of treatment. At your initial assessment, your dentist will be able to provide you with treatment options and a cost estimate for each of the proposed procedure(s). The cost estimate can be sent to your insurer to determine what aspects of the makeover are covered under your dental plan and the extent of coverage.
