A Smile Makeover: Are Veneers My Only Option?

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — Joseph Loftus DDS @ 9:14 pm

smile makeoverCosmetic dentistry is a great way to correct any issues you might have with the appearance of your teeth. It can help you feel better about the way you look and give you much-needed self-confidence. One popular cosmetic option is the smile makeover, which combines a number of treatments to give you your best possible smile.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is more than just veneers. Veneers could be a part of your treatment, but you could also choose from several other possible options. The treatments you choose depend entirely upon what you’d like to see improved about your smile.

You and our dentist will work together to decide on the best approach, but some of the most common cosmetic dentistry options employed in a smile makeover include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Invisalign
  • Tooth-colored crowns or fillings
  • Tooth-colored bonding
  • Porcelain veneers

Choosing a combination of treatments allows you to address several issues that might be bothering you. It can also save you time and money, since your dentist can often schedule two or more treatments for the same appointment.

Choosing Your Smile Makeover

Your smile makeover will be designed by you and your dentist to provide exactly the treatment and results you desire. You’ll consult with him to discuss how you want your teeth to look after treatment is completed. There should be before and after pictures of previous clients that you can examine to give you an idea of what your teeth will look like after treatment.

Choosing the right cosmetic dentist is also important. Referrals are the best way to find a reliable dentist you’ll be happy with. During your consultation, ask about anything you’re unsure about. The more knowledge you have about your treatment, the more likely you are to be happy with your eventual results.
