When most patients are first introduced to the concept of a smile makeover, it can seem like a very complexly orchestrated event. Some may question whether or not their cosmetic issues are severe enough to warrant all of the fuss and hassle, but for those interested in solving all of their dental concerns at once, it may be the best option.
A smile makeover is defined as being a multi-step set of procedures designed by your dentist to solve every imperfection you struggle with at once. Whether your concerns are functional or purely ornamental, there is a path forward for you – at your initial consultation you will be x-rayed, scanned, and thoroughly evaluated. After having a conversation about the state of your teeth as they exist currently, a course of action will be will be planned and treatment can begin. Any individual suffering with multiple dissatisfactions can qualify; it’s simply a matter of what needs to be done that differentiates individual cases.
A smile makeover can be used to resolve literally any issue concerning the appearance or health of the teeth. For patients whose teeth have garnered noticeable discoloration, a bleaching regimen can be recommended. Those who have been involved in an accident will be able to find restoration of any broken, chipped, cracked, or completely missing teeth in a smile makeover, whether only one tooth is affected or the entire set. Old, damaged, or failing dental fixtures of the past may be repaired or replace over the course of a smile makeover, including any fillings, crowns, veneers, or implants already existing in the mouth. Misshapen or otherwise eroded teeth can also be altered through these means.
There are certain factors that may deter a patient from seeking a smile makeover, the two most commonly cited ones being the money and time commitment; as there can be many discrete steps involved in the process overall, participating in a smile makeover will require many in-office appointments, both before treatment, during, and after, to make any adjustments necessary and keep tabs on any potential issues that may arise down the road.
