Smile Makeover

Smile Makeover

Everyone loves a beautiful smile! But what is that makes a smile beautiful? Of course, the answer varies from person to person, because beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. But there are some basics that need to be followed. Let’s start with the color. We want all the teeth to be fairly uniform in color, but with a natural whiteness, not a shining whiteness. Most people smile with a minimum of eight upper teeth and therefore a smile makeover should include a minimum of eight upper teeth.

Smile makeovers usually require two appointments about three weeks apart. The first appointment is to reshape the teeth and obtain an impression to send to our dental laboratory. We try not to rush these fine artists as they often are sculpting the smile in different ways to find out what looks best. At the second appointment, the new restorations are bonded in place and a five-step finishing process is completed. As usual, we want you to be not just happy, but ecstatic about your new smile!

Veneers

Veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Veneers are a very thin, ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you are able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth and many other issues.

In terms of the process to place veneers, it is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of the new veneers. As we complete this piece of the process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. This process at the laboratory takes about three weeks. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful, temporary solution to wear for this time. As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time.

We’d love to partner with you to improve your dental care.
