If you desire a smile that makes you feel confident, a smile makeover may be the right fit for you. Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of procedures that can turn a dull, dingy smile pearly white or even transform an even smile with crooked teeth and more! At Devine Dentistry, we customize each smile makeover so that it fits the individual needs of each patient.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover aims to completely transform a smile and is typically done so by combining more than one treatment. Not only will your results be aesthetic, but will function well also.

Treatments often used in a smile makeover may include any combination of the following:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Composite bonding
  • Inlay/Onlay
  • Dental implants
  • Dental bridge or crown
  • Veneers
  • Smile lift
  • Orthodontics
  • Six Month Smiles
  • And more!

Who is a candidate for a smile makeover?

In general, patients with optimal oral health are good candidates for a smile makeover. This means that any active tooth decay or gum disease must be treated before undergoing cosmetic dentistry to complete a smile makeover. The purpose for this is to prevent having to redo treatment later on. For example, placing veneers over teeth when gum disease is present would mean the results would not last and would not look as good. This is why we assess the state of your oral health during your consultation for a smile makeover before proceeding with any treatments.

What are the functional benefits of a smile makeover?

It is almost impossible to list all of the benefits of a smile makeover. Not only will your new smile be gorgeous, but you will smile with confidence! Also, an attractive smile with straight teeth makes maintaining oral health much easier, which means less risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Having a new smile does not mean you can become lax on your oral health routine or visits to the dentist, it simply means teeth are easier to clean when they are straight and come together correctly.

What can a smile makeover fix? 

A smile makeover can correct just about any concern that you may have with your teeth.

Common examples included teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Missing
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Short
  • Uneven
  • Twisted
  • Decayed
  • Damaged in other ways

What does a smile makeover include?

Each smile makeover is designed for the individual patient in mind. This means that each smile makeovers will vary depending on the needs of the patient. However, your smile makeover will have a detailed treatment plan that outlines the exact procedures that you will need, the timeline of how long it will take to achieve your desired results, as well as the cost. We will be sure to discuss these details with you before we get started on your smile makeover.

Commonly combined treatments may include:

  • Teeth whitening and veneers for a whiter smile and to straighten teeth
  • Replacement of old silver fillings along with veneers to whiten teeth
  • Dental crowns to strengthen brittle or damaged teeth
  • Dental implants and teeth whitening to replace missing teeth and make existing teeth brighter and whiter

The advancements in cosmetic dentistry make improving your smile an open door. The best combination of treatments are the ones perfect for your needs. Be sure to discuss your smile concerns with Dr. Devine during your consultation. This way, we can fix everything at once and save you money in the long run from having to repeat treatments.

Not sure where to start? Dr. Devine has an expertly trained eye to identify areas that need improving when it comes to your smile.

How long will it take to achieve my smile makeover?

This, too, will depend on which treatments you are receiving. Teeth whitening may be completed within an hour or less. However, more extensive procedures such as dental implants or orthodontics can take months to achieve the final results. We also offer treatments that can provide astounding results in as little as a couple of weeks.

How much does a smile makeover cost?

The cost will also vary, depending on the treatments you choose. We will provide you with these details during your consultation so that you are fully aware of all costs associated with your smile makeover. If cost is a concern for you, be sure to ask us about the option of low monthly, interest-free payments that allow you to undergo your treatments now, and pay for them later. We never want cost to dictate care that a patient receives, which is why we offer a variety of payment methods to suit the needs of every patient.
