Questions and Answers

Question: I know I really want my smile to look better, so I assume I need a smile makeover. How do I find out if that’s the case?

Answer: You come see our dental team! It’s possible, of course, to piece together what you assume your care plan will look like on your own. However, it’s also possible that you’re missing pieces of the puzzle, so you will end up with a skewed idea of reality. Schedule a visit. Your consultation will reveal everything you need to know about how we can improve your grin.

Question: What types of treatments come into play with a smile makeover? Can you dramatically overhaul the way my smile looks by addressing all of my issues?

Answer: If you choose to make over your smile, we can address just about every esthetic problem that’s causing you alarm. Treatments may include teeth whitening, dental contouring, dental bonding, gum contouring, and/or porcelain veneers.

Question: What if I really need a complete makeover, not just with the way my smile looks but also with the health of my smile? Do I need something else?

Answer: Yes. We refer to this as reconstruction. While a makeover refers to cosmetic needs, you may require advanced restorative care to bring your smile back to a healthy, attractive feature.
