Smile Makeover Planning
The smile is one of the most noticeable physical traits, so when someone is dissatisfied with its appearance, it has a significant impact on their confidence levels. Fixing a single cosmetic blemish is usually pretty straightforward, but people often feel helpless when multiple imperfections are present.
At Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, which serves Bloomington, IL, Champaign, IL, and surrounding areas, we offer smile makeover treatment to address aesthetic flaws and rejuvenate the smile. Smile makeover treatment can address multiple issues at once and is completely customizable. Here, we discuss how smile makeover planning allows our dentists to ensure that each of our patient’s unique needs and desires are met.
Smile Makeover Consultation
A smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments so that we can address numerous issues at once and completely enhance the appearance of the smile. It is important for people to understand that a smile makeover is a cosmetic procedure, meaning that it only addresses superficial cosmetic flaws, not underlying health issues. Smile makeover treatment begins with a consultation to determine whether patients are ideal candidates for this procedure. If a patient has oral health issues that need to be addressed, they may need to correct those before proceeding with a smile makeover.
If patients are ideal candidates for a smile makeover, our dentists begin the planning process by examining the teeth and gums, and discussing with the patient the specific issues they would like to correct. It is essential that we have a thorough understanding of the patient’s unique needs and desires, and that they have realistic expectations for what can be achieved through smile makeover treatment.
Smile makeover treatment is customized for each of our patients based on their unique cosmetic concerns. Our dentists look at the whole picture, so they can choose the cosmetic dentistry treatments that will give patients the smile they desire while complementing other facial features and maintaining facial symmetry. Cosmetic dentistry treatments that may be combined for a smile makeover include:
- Dental bonding
- Dental crowns
- Porcelain veneers
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Teeth whitening
The Smile Makeover Procedure
Once our dentists have chosen the appropriate cosmetic dentistry treatments to include in smile makeover treatment, they plan out the procedure. Most often, a smile makeover can be completed in a single dental appointment. Combining treatments and performing them at once makes a smile makeover more convenient for our patients because it saves them time and, often, money.
If patients require more than one dental appointment to complete smile makeover treatment (as is likely to be the case if an extended procedure like Invisalign is part of the treatment plan), our dentists plan out the procedure to get as much done as possible in the first dental appointment so that patients immediately notice an improvement in the appearance of their smile.
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile due to multiple aesthetic flaws, you are likely an ideal candidate for smile makeover treatment.
