A smile makeover is a carefully designed treatment program that combines multiple treatments and procedures aimed at helping a patient enjoy a more attractive smile and often, improved oral health. Studies have shown having great-looking teeth and an attractive smile can have a big impact on a person’s self-confidence and even influence other people’s perceptions. At Texas Dental, we offer smile makeovers customized for the needs and treatment objectives of each patient to help them achieve a more attractive, more confident smile.
A smile makeover can be relatively simple involving just one or two procedures, or it can involve many different procedures to address an array of concerns. Some of the most common procedures performed in smile makeovers include:
As skilled dentists, the team at Texas Dental is experienced in smile evaluations that can help identify issues and help patients decide which treatment options can help them achieve their ultimate goals. During the initial consultation, patients will be asked to describe the concerns they have and their teeth, gums, jaws, bite mechanics and overall smile aesthetics will all be evaluated to determine the best course of action. Then the plan will be carefully reviewed with the patient prior to treatment so the patient can feel confident in the care they receive throughout every step of their treatment.
Yes, many procedures used in smile makeovers can improve oral health in addition to improving smile aesthetics. For instance, crowns used to hide old, dark fillings can also provide additional strength to the tooth and prevent decay from leaching in around the filling edges, and straightening teeth with Invisalign® can eliminate crevices where bacteria can hide and make it easier to keep teeth clean.
That depends on the individual insurance policy. Our office staff can help determine the amount of coverage that’s provided and identify financing plans to make the cost of treatment more affordable.
