A smile makeover exists that so that people can receive the smile of their dreams. This type of treatment typically involves multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures so that a patient can get the smile that they have always wanted. This may include teeth whitening, veneers, Invisalign or a number of various procedures that help you get a healthy, bright smile that you are proud of. As a cosmetic dentistry practice, the team at élan by Dr. Meghan Hodges can help you determine which treatments will give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We actually encourage patients to bring photos of some of their favorite celebrity smiles so that we can pinpoint attributes to incorporate in a smile makeover plan. The first step in finding out more about how a smile makeover can benefit you is to have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Hodges so that we can examine your oral health, discuss your vision of a gorgeous smile, and study the dynamics of your face, mouth, and skin tone.
What Can a Smile Makeover Remedy?
A smile makeover can help you improve your appearance but also the function of your mouth, teeth, and gums. The following aspects may be discussed with your cosmetic dentist in order to formulate a plan for your unique needs:
Tooth Color– Discolored teeth are a common problem many Americans will experience at some point in their lives. To help with this issue a teeth whitening treatment such as Zoom Whitening may be suggested or you may want to consider dental veneers.
Alignment– Misaligned teeth are often a reason for a bad bite or unattractive smile. Teeth can be properly straightened with invisible treatments such as Invisalign or with veneers.
Spacing– Teeth that have unsightly gaps between them can be straightened or remedied through a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures and we will help you decide on one that works best for you.
Missing Teeth– Missing teeth greatly affect the appearance of your smile and can be replaced with dental implants or bridges.
Chipped, Cracked, or Uneven Teeth– Bonding and veneers can help improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, or uneven.
Tooth Length– A smile makeover treatment for teeth that are shorter may include reshaping and lengthening of the two front central teeth with bonding or porcelain veneers.
Tooth Proportions– A balanced smile will give the appearance of proper proportion and good oral health.
We plan a smile makeover to suit your appearance and unique style. Dr. Hodges will explain your options and show you (with a computer image, before-and-after photos, or a wax model) the potential results of the proposed treatment plan. Your input will help us determine how to give you the smile you want and your smile makeover will be directly determined by the procedures you decide upon.
