What to Expect From a Smile Makeover

Are you intrigued by the idea of smile makeover? You may have heard of the concept or know someone who has had one, but what exactly does it entail?

If you are dissatisfied with your smile when you see yourself in pictures or in the mirror, a smile makeover is one way to improve it so that you can smile with confidence.

What does a smile makeover involve?

To completely makeover your smile, a few different dental procedures may need to be done. Some procedures may be cosmetic; others may be restorative. Some parts of the process may be quick; others can take some time. A complete smile makeover can encompass any combination of the following procedures:

There may be other procedures your dentist could recommend to help improve your smile, but these are the most commonly applied methods. You may need one or more of these procedures to achieve your desired results.

What preparatory procedures may be needed?

A smile makeover may consist primarily of cosmetic procedures, but any dental health issues must be addressed first. Cavities will need to be filled and root canal procedures done if they are needed to restore tooth health. Gum disease will need to be treated if present, possibly requiring scaling or root planing to prevent it from recurring. If dental implants are part of your smile makeover and you don’t have sufficient bone structure in your jaw, a bone graft procedure may be required first.

It is important to take care of your dental health before applying cosmetic procedures, otherwise the new improved smile won’t last. It would be like putting a new coat of paint on a house that’s falling down.

How do I get started?

The first step in a smile makeover is always a consultation. The dentist needs to evaluate your current dental health and discuss your cosmetic concerns in order to form a plan of treatment. If you are an ideal candidate for a smile makeover, the next step in the process is to get digital images of the teeth. Your dentist can then show you before and after pictures to demonstrate how your teeth will change from beginning to end of the process.
