What is a Smile Makeover?
Most people like certain aspects of their appearance and not others. When cosmetic concerns revolve around the smile, a dentist can customize various procedures based on unique requirements. We refer to this type of personalized care as a smile makeover. To develop the ideal treatment, Drs. Lerner & Lemongello have a detailed discussion with each patient. They also examine the teeth, lips, and gums to assess aspects of the smile that could benefit from cosmetic treatment.
What is included in a Smile Makeover?
Drs. Lerner & Lemongello have dedicated their careers to cosmetic and rehabilitative dentistry. Each dentist designs a smile makeover that revolves around the patients desired outcome, needs, unique circumstances, and also their facial structure and complexion. The objectives achieved in the smile makeover process may include:
Improved balance and harmony. Teeth sit within a frame comprised of the lip line and gum line. An aesthetically pleasing smile is created by teeth that fit well in this frame. A smile makeover may focus on this aspect by resizing or reshaping teeth according to their surrounding structures.
Optimal structure. The teeth are the foundational structure of the smile. Missing teeth disrupt the flow of the smile by creating large gaps. These gaps may lead to shifting that creates additional, smaller gaps. A smile makeover may include tooth replacement using techniques that increase the lifespan of the smile.
Tooth color. The shade of the teeth affects the overall youthfulness of the face. Tooth color is one of the first traits of the smile that people seek to improve. A dentist may improve the color of teeth in several ways, such as teeth whitening, bonding, or veneers.
Alignment and spacing. Teeth that are overlapping or spaced far apart detract from the flow of the smile. These issues may be corrected with orthodontic treatment, veneers, or other procedures.
No two smiles are alike. No two patients need the same care. This is what is exciting about a smile makeover. It involves a unique combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures that bring out the beauty of your smile. This goal may be accomplished using one or more of the following:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Tooth-colored ceramic crowns
- Gum treatments
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental bridgework
- Dental implants
What are the benefits of a Smile Makeover?
The primary benefit of a smile makeover is that this personalized process results in your enjoyment of a smile that truly fits your face. From tooth shape and size to color, the makeover process creates a smile that reflects your unique personality. Many people who address the cosmetic issues in their smile report improvements in all areas of their lives. These improvements stem from feeling more satisfied and confident in their appearance.
Who is an ideal candidate for a Smile Makeover?
Being completely customizable based on treatment goals and oral health needs, the smile makeover process can be a great solution for any person who wants to attain their best smile. While treatment goals are unique to each patient, a smile makeover is known for correcting a few common problems. These include:
- Discoloration caused by aging or smoking
- Decayed or damaged teeth
- Cracks or chips in teeth
- Missing teeth
- Uneven spacing between teeth
- Bite problems
What can I expect during my smile makeover consultation?
Dr. Lerner and Dr. Lemongello will take time to listen and understand your desires, expectations and cosmetic goals regarding your smile makeover. They will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and smile. Utilizing digital imaging they will create a preview of what is possible to improve your smile, blending with your facial features creating a smile that is right for you.
Once they understand your smile makeover goals, they will be able to make recommendations for treatment. Your personalized smile makeover might include a few different treatments. Dr. Lerner and Dr. Lemongello will explain in detail everything involved in the process in order to give you a beautiful new smile so that you can make a confident and educated decision.
What is the Smile Makeover procedure?
A smile makeover begins with a comprehensive, in-depth conversation about your desired improvements. Your dentist may show you images of other smiles to help you clarify who you would like your smile to look. The appointment includes a full dental examination of the teeth, gums, bite, and overall oral health. In some cases, we take x-rays or impressions during the visit. Depending on the extent of restorative and cosmetic work expected, the dentist may discuss your treatment options immediately or may take a few days to review your case and develop a more comprehensive treatment plan.
How long does a Smile Makeover take to complete?
Smile makeovers vary widely due to their customization. Where one patient may undergo one or two procedures in a single visit, another smile makeover may involve months of carefully-developed treatments that improve the structure, health, and appearance of the teeth and gums.
What to expect during recovery after a Smile Makeover?
Recovery is dependent on the number and type of treatments you have done. We make sure that you are fully informed of your anticipated recovery and necessary aftercare before your treatment takes place. Some treatments, such as teeth whitening or fillings, require no downtime. Others may involve a day or two of rest to allow soreness or swelling to subside.
