Is a Smile Makeover for Me?
You are a candidate for a smile makeover if you are in good overall health, but are dissatisfied with certain aspects of your smile. A smile makeover can address a number of imperfections:
- Discolored teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Uneven gum line
- Misaligned or overcrowded smile
- Eroded, misshapen, or uneven teeth
- Gaps or crooked teeth
A smile makeover is a cosmetic treatment, and is not intended to treat oral health problems such as gum disease, chronic teeth grinding, untreated decay, or severe tooth misalignment. Dr. Hughes will perform a traditional oral exam during your consultation. If any oral health issues are found, they will need to be addressed prior to your smile makeover process.
Dr. Hughes will first determine whether you are a good candidate for a smile makeover, and ask about your specific goals and medical history. Next, Dr. Hughes will review the procedures that could be included in your treatment plan. Since a smile makeover is custom tailored to fit your needs, no two are ever the same. A smile makeover may be comprehensive or subtle, and can include any number of cosmetic or restorative treatments:
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Gum or dental reshaping
- Orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign®
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Crowns, bridges, or implants
Dr. Hughes will recommend a personal treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. He will consider all aspects of creating your optimal smile by addressing the length, color, position, shape, and general appearance of your teeth to ensure that your smile will appear natural.
Smile Makeover Benefits
There are many advantages to combining multiple treatments into one smile makeover. Performing all procedures at once can produce more comprehensive results, which can have a huge impact on your overall appearance. Healing time, office visits, overall cost, and time away from work and commitments can be consolidated and minimized by combining your treatments into one smile makeover.
A smile makeover can boost self-confidence. Some patients feel self-conscious or embarrassed about how their teeth look, and even avoid smiling or laughing in public. A smile makeover can help improve your professional and social life by allowing you to be less self-conscious of your teeth and smile.
Cost of a Smile Makeover
Since a smile makeover is unique to each patient, the cost can vary considerably. The total cost will depend on a number of factors, including the extent of your treatment, and any sedation administered during your smile makeover. To make the cost of your smile makeover affordable, we offer in-house payment plan options. We also provide patient financing through CareCredit℠. Our team is happy to assist you in determining how to pay for your smile makeover.
