Am I a Good Candidate?
A smile makeover is optimal for patients who want a whiter, brighter, and more symmetrical smile. Since it is a comprehensive treatment that may include both restorative and cosmetic procedures, it is great for patients interested in improving multiple aspects of their smile.
Smile makeover candidates should be in good oral health. Dental issues, such as periodontal disease, will need to be addressed prior to beginning your smile makeover procedures.
Commonly Combined Procedures
During your consultation, Dr. Kelly will explain which treatments may provide you with an optimal balance between beauty and comfort. Components of your smile makeover may include any combination of the following:
Porcelain veneers: These thin shells of porcelain resemble tooth enamel. When placed on the front of one or more teeth, they can conceal a variety of cosmetic flaws such as chips, gaps, misalignment, and misshapen teeth.
Teeth whitening: White, bright teeth radiates health and youth. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest, most conservative ways to give your smile a boost. If you are having veneers or cosmetic crowns placed, it is recommended that you whiten the remaining visible teeth first, so that all of your teeth match your ideal shade.
Porcelain crowns: Sometimes called caps, porcelain crowns can cosmetically enhance a tooth, as well as restore damage. Like porcelain veneers, crowns cover imperfections on one or more teeth. Though both are durable, crowns are structurally stronger than veneers.
Dermal fillers and BOTOX® cosmetic: Dr. Kelly is specially trained in using non-invasive injectable skin treatments to bring cosmetic results to a whole new level. BOTOX® can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, further rejuvenating your smile.
Dental implants: If you are missing teeth, Dr. Kelly can restore the comfort, functionality, and appearance of your smile through dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically implanted in the jaw, providing an anchor for dentures, crowns, and bridges.
TMJ treatment: Dr. Kelly is a specialist in correcting bite alignment, and can incorporate TMJ therapy into your treatment plan, to ensure that your smile feels as good as it looks.
Benefits of a Smile Makeover
Many patients appreciate the comprehensive nature of a smile makeover, especially if they have been avoiding or postponing dental work. The opportunity to complete all dental procedures at once is not only convenient, but can also be cost effective, since less appointments and time off from work or other commitments are involved.
A smile makeover can give you a sparkling new smile, providing a boost of self-confidence and enhanced quality of life. Many patients feel more comfortable socially and professionally with their new smile, and are no longer concerned with their dental imperfections.
