If you are embarrassed by your smile and have multiple aesthetic problems that you would like to address, a smile makeover may be the solution. A makeover combines multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures for a comprehensive smile transformation. Our dentists in Dallas offer a complete range of cosmetic treatments performed with the latest technology. Before beginning a makeover, Dr. Shaun Sigurdson or Dr. Mihir Patel will carry out a smile analysis. Then he will work with you to design a one-of-a-kind makeover.
Am I a candidate for a smile makeover?
You may be a candidate for a smile makeover if you struggle with one or more of the following cosmetic issues:
- Tooth discoloration
- Worn teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Excess gum tissue or uneven gums
- Diastema, or gapped teeth
Before beginning a smile makeover, your Lakewood dentist will need to address any current dental health issues, such as active decay or gum disease.
What treatments are included in a smile makeover?
Each smile makeover is unique. Your treatment will be customized according to your particular needs and objectives. It may include any of the following treatments:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental bonding
- Tooth contouring
- Gum shaping
- Dental crowns
- In-office or take-home teeth whitening
Our dentist will explain all of your options at your initial smile analysis.
Can I have a smile makeover if I have crooked teeth?
Yes! In fact, we often include orthodontic treatment in our smile makeovers. At Lakewood Dental Group, we proudly offer Invisalign®, which is more discreet and often more comfortable than traditional braces.
If you include orthodontia in your makeover, our dentists in Dallas typically recommend that you undergo this treatment before receiving additional cosmetic treatments.
What is the timeline for a smile makeover?
The length of your smile makeover is dependent on the number and types of treatments that you choose. Some patients can receive a makeover in a single day. In general, however, smile makeovers take place in stages over several weeks or months.
How much does a smile makeover cost?
Because smile makeovers are customized, the cost of treatment differs from patient to patient. When planning for care, your Lakewood dentist will take your budget into account, helping you choose procedures that meet both your cosmetic and your financial goals.
Smile makeovers are considered an elective treatment and, as such, are not typically covered by insurance. However, insurance may cover certain procedures, such as Invisalign® or dental crowns, which have a restorative purpose. In addition, we offer several affordable financing options.
How long will my results last?
If you care for your teeth properly, the results of your smile makeover could last for decades. Proper maintenance includes daily brushing and flossing, routine visits to the dentist, and a tooth-healthy diet. If you include teeth whitening in your makeover, you may need to have repeat treatments to maintain your brighter grin.
