If you have been less than thrilled with your smile, there is a simple way to take care of it, and it is called a smile makeover. Whether you know everything that goes into it or not, it’s a common procedure that combines a few different cosmetic dental moves to create the most improvement possible in your smile by whitening, tightening, and sometimes even installing veneers to protect your teeth.
Approaching Your Makeover
Every time this procedure is done, it goes a little differently, because each person has different needs when it comes to the best thing to do to improve a smile. For most people, teeth whitening is a basic first step. From there, the process can diverge, but the goal is to produce teeth that appear to be straighter and more even, as well as whiter.
This means that some candidates will find the dentist advising them to go with veneers, whereas others might need just a minor straightening of the teeth that can be accomplished through the short-term use of prosthetics.
Cost and Risks
Many of the cosmetic procedures involved in the makeover fall into a gray area with insurance, so it is important to consult your coverage if cost is an issue. We can help you find out that information through your insurance company if necessary, or you can contact them yourself. When it comes to risks, though, there are no worries—the procedures that make up a smile makeover are well established and very low risk, and the initial appointment to consult about the process will also involve a review of your candidacy for the process.
