What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a series of treatments and procedures that redesign your smile to look its best. Smile makeovers are unique to the individual and can include one or more of the following.
- Damaged tooth repair (cracks, chips, breaks)
- Teeth whitening for yellow or dark teeth
- Teeth replacement with dental implants or dentures
- Teeth restoration with crowns or veneers
- Teeth reshaping
- Teeth resizing
- Teeth straightening with Invisalign®
- Filling or crown replacement (swapping silver for tooth-color)
Smile makeovers are generally classified as cosmetic dentistry. But, if you need the restorations to have functional teeth, insurance may cover some parts of your smile makeover.
How does a smile makeover work?
First, you have a smile makeover consultation with Dr. Avram at Tuckahoe Family Dentistry. During this appointment, you discuss all your smile and overall appearance goals, so Dr. Avram can guide you in the planning process.
Dr. Avram typically uses digital X-rays and an intra-oral camera to capture the most detailed images of your mouth possible so he can plan your treatment with ultimate precision. Depending on your smile makeover plan, Dr. Avram might start the process the same day as your consultation.
If you need any major dental work during your smile makeover, such as extractions, not to worry, Dr. Avram focuses on your comfort. He always chooses the least invasive method possible and helps you choose the right sedation and anesthesia options for your specific needs.
How long will my smile makeover take?
It’s natural to feel excited to reveal your new smile to the world, and Dr. Avram works with you to meet that goal as quickly as possible. Smile makeovers often take at least two or three visits to Tuckahoe Family Dentistry, but it really depends on your specific needs and goals.
Dr. Avram completes your smile makeover in the fastest and most efficient way possible, while always emphasizing your comfort.
