A Few Questions About Making Over Your Smile

Making over your smile is a big deal, especially if you’ve put up with smile blemishes for years. However, it isn’t always a big deal in the sense of how complex the procedure is. For example, many patients can dramatically improve their smiles with only one or two customized treatments, such as porcelain veneers. Even if you do require more than one procedure, your dentist can design your smile makeover plan to ensure maximum results with minimal permanent changes to your healthy, natural teeth.

How complicated is it going to be?

Every smile makeover plan is different because every plan is tailored to a patient’s unique, highly specific needs. Yet, the goal of your plan will be to keep your treatment as comfortable and minimally invasive as possible, which means your smile makeover may be much less complicated than you expected. For example, even if you have multiple smile issues, your dentist might be able to correct most or all of them with a few strategically placed porcelain veneers.

What if I’m missing one or more teeth?

While most smile makeover plans are comprised of cosmetic dental treatments, like bonding and veneers, your plan can include an appropriate number of lifelike tooth replacements if you’ve lost one or more teeth. In many cases, dental implants are the best solution. They not only support a highly lifelike crown, bridge, or denture, but also preserve your jawbone’s integrity and appearance by stimulating it every time you bite and chew.
