Smile Makeovers Q & A

Sharyar Baradaran, DDS, MS

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a series of cosmetic dental treatments delivered consecutively or concurrently to correct several issues which affect an individual’s smile, gums, and teeth. These treatment programs are created by the dentist and are aimed at restoring and improving the appearance of a bright healthy smile. These programs are best for people who have a number of dental concerns which they want to fix such as discoloration, teeth crowding, chipped teeth, and gaps.  Most of the time, these treatment programs combine whitening, veneers or crowns, and in some instances orthodontics. Whatever treatments the patient needs are used to achieve a totally reconstructed smile.

What procedures are included in a smile makeover?

The exact procedures used depend on which conditions are being treated in that particular patient. The dentist provides a thorough consultation to each patient considering a smile makeover to discuss his or her specific concerns. The dentist also performs a dental exam to see if any restorative work is necessary before or during any purely cosmetic procedures. Some of the most commonly used dental treatments include:

  • Crowns to correct defects and strengthen and protect teeth
  • Onlays or composite fillings to treat cavities and offer natural-looking outcomes
  • Whitening procedures address surface stains
  • Porcelain veneers to correct chips, gaps, cracks, discoloration, and uneven edges
  • Dental implants and bridges to replace lost teeth
  • Gum and bone grafting to augment areas where tissue is needed for implants
  • TMJ treatments
  • Root planing and scaling to treat gum disease

What happens during a smile makeover?

A smile makeover begins with a dental consultation and assessment of the mouth by the dentist. The dentist and the patient discuss the expectations and goals for treatment and the dentist will customize a plan to address those specific concerns. The patient makes several visits to the office over the following weeks and months for the treatments. Some of the procedures are taken care of in one visit, like fillings and in-office teeth whitening, while others may need multiple visits for full installation such as veneers, crowns, or any orthodontic treatment. Throughout the delivery of the treatment plan, the dentist will use the most advanced technology available to minimize any discomfort that may be experienced.
