WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR A SMILE MAKEOVER?
How can I prepare for a smile makeover?
You can prepare for your smile makeover by doing a few things. The first is to consider what you would like to improve about your smile. Is it the color of your teeth? The shape or length of one or more teeth? Do you have some damage that needs to be repaired? If you have only a general idea, don’t worry. Your dentist can help you refine the details that will customize your smile to your face, complexion, and personality.
When you visit a dentist to discuss your smile makeover, expect a full consultation and examination. The other way that we must prepare for this beneficial cosmetic treatment is to evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. If there is decay, inflammation, deterioration of existing restorations like fillings, or other problems, these may be addressed first in your makeover process.
HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE MY SMILE MAKEOVER?
This will depend on the procedures needed to provide you with the results you want. It could take as little as one or two appointments scheduled within a few weeks. If a variety of procedures are selected, the full results can take longer.
What kind of anesthesia is used during a smile makeover procedure?
Aside from teeth whitening, most dental procedures are performed with local anesthesia that is gently injected into the gums. Dr. Mandy and Dr. Mark understand that some patients feel uncomfortably anxious about dental treatment, so have made it easier to receive care by offering dental sedation.
If you want a smile makeover but any part of the process makes you nervous, talk to our staff. You may include nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation in any appointment to help you feel deeply relaxed while we enhance your smile.
Is there an age restriction for a smile makeover procedure?
Cosmetic dental treatments are generally appropriate for adults of all ages. In some situations, such as teeth whitening or bonding, older teens may qualify for certain cosmetic procedures. More than age, a dentist is interested in overall health and, specifically tooth and gum health, when planning cosmetic treatments. The objective is to address dental health issues so that cosmetic treatments have every opportunity to last many years.
How long does each smile makeover procedure take?
A smile makeover may take a number of visits to address the various concerns you have. This differs for every patient because every smile makeover is unique. Some treatments can be done in a single visit, such as Zoom! teeth whitening.
Others, such as porcelain veneers and crowns, require two visits over the course of a few weeks. After hearing your concerns and desired outcome, your dentist can estimate which procedures would be suitable for you and the time-frame they expect it to take to complete your makeover.
How long does it take to recover from a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is often not a once-and-done appointment. It is more of a process that addresses multiple cosmetic concerns. Your recovery, then, is dependent on the procedures you need to bring out the best in your smile.
As an example, if your makeover includes switching silver fillings for tooth-colored restorations, you can expect to be back to your normal activities in a few hours after your appointment. If you replace one or more missing teeth with dental implants, you may eat softer foods and take over-the-counter pain medication for a few days until soreness subsides.
Our team wants patients to have the best experience possible. If you decide to have a smile makeover, you can expect your dentist to walk you through each step that has been carefully planned just for you.
DOES DENTAL INSURANCE COVER THE COST OF SMILE MAKEOVERS?
Generally speaking, insurance will only cover a small portion of the smile makeover, if any. This is because most procedures are deemed ‘cosmetic’. However, we have many financing options available to ensure that smile makeovers are affordable for every budget.
What are the risks associated with a smile makeover?
The dental procedures that are commonly performed for a smile makeover are generally very safe. Depending on the procedure, there may be a slight risk of infection, which can be managed with good aftercare and, if needed, antibiotics. This risk is associated primarily with dental implant treatment due to its minimally-invasive nature.
Other treatments in the smile makeover are primarily cosmetic. This limits risks to potentially unsatisfying aesthetic outcomes. When you choose an experienced cosmetic dentist to plan and perform your smile makeover, are clear about your desires, and have realistic expectations set during your consultation, you stand a very good chance of loving your results.
