How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

Your first step to a flawless smile is a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. They'll learn more about your concerns, goals, and preferences. After examining your mouth, they'll discuss which procedures are right for you, which may include:

  • Veneers: You can correct many issues at once by bonding veneers to the front surfaces of the teeth visible when smiling.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: All-ceramic materials are used to make durable, natural-looking restorations.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: A composite resin is shaded to the color of your enamel to blend in when fixing minor flaws.
  • Teeth Whitening: Age-related and surface stains can be improved by up to 8 shades using a professional whitening system.
  • Invisalign: Clear aligners are worn over your teeth to correct bite and alignment problems with no brackets or wires.
  • Gum Recontouring: Removing excess gum tissue can make teeth look larger and proportionate.

Your dentist will explain exactly what you can expect during and after your treatment. Our office uses Virtual Smile Design technology, which allows your dentist to show you the changes that will be made to see the results you can expect.

Which Procedures Are Right for Me?

A smile makeover isn’t a single procedure because every mouth is as unique as fingerprints. Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth and learn more about your goals to determine which procedures are right for you. They may recommend more than one treatment, depending on your situation, like:

  • Veneers: Bonding veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth can resolve many issues using one minimally invasive procedure, like discoloration, chips, and cracks.
  • Metal-Free Dental Restorations: Crowns and other restorations are made of all-ceramic materials to look like real teeth.
  • Cosmetic Dental Bonding: A composite resin can fix minor imperfections quickly. It will blend in with your enamel for natural-looking results.
  • Teeth Whitening: Your teeth can get up to 8 shades whiter with a professional whitening treatment.
  • Invisalign: Clear aligners can correct bite and alignment problems using a comfortable, discreet method.
  • Gum Recontouring: A soft tissue laser can sculpt your gum line to make your teeth look shapely and proportionate.

Does a Smile Makeover Hurt?

Your cosmetic dentist will keep your comfort as their top priority. Depending on your treatment plan, they may administer a local numbing agent to block any pain. At most, you may feel some pressure or unusual sensations. You may experience temporary tenderness or sensitivity. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. Your cosmetic dentist will review any additional aftercare instructions before you head home.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

Everyone’s timeline differs because no two treatments are identical. After your initial consultation, you might need a little prep work, like a dental cleaning or a filling. Once your teeth and gums are healthy, your dentist will schedule you for your procedure. Some treatments can be performed in one visit, like teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding. Other services can take multiple appointments or several months, like veneers or Invisalign. Your cosmetic dentist will explain how long you can expect the process to take during your consultation.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Last?

Many factors will affect the duration of your results. Each procedure has a different lifespan and multiple things can influence your results. You can get the most from your investment by using non-abrasive dental products to brush your teeth twice daily. Don’t forget to floss every day. Break any bad habits that can damage your teeth, like crunching ice. Limit your consumption of sugary foods and drinks. Schedule a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to keep your mouth healthy.
