When is Smile Makeover a Good Option?


Our practice sees numerous patients who have a variety of issues with their smiles. It is very rare for someone to have a single cosmetic dental problem. In order to help our patients, achieve their best smiles, we often suggest a smile makeover.

Often, patients are familiar with the term smile makeover but are not entirely sure what it really means. A smile makeover is a grouping of elective cosmetic dental procedures. It is performed to give a patient the smile of their dreams.

A smile makeover is a good option when a patient has several dental issues that they would like us to correct. Our Tarzana cosmetic dentist develops an individual care plan for each patient’s makeover. The individualized plan is necessary because no two patients will need precisely the same procedures to create their perfect smile.

It is essential for our patients to understand that a smile makeover can be a lengthy process and it will not be complete in one or two visits. It is not uncommon for a makeover to take several weeks. If dental implants are a part of the makeover, the process may take months because of the healing time involved in the process.

For smile makeovers, all of the cosmetic dentistry treatments are available. Our dentist will talk with you about available treatments and expected results during your consultation. The options you can choose from include:
• Bridges
• Crowns
• Dental Bonding
• Dental Implants
• Porcelain or Resin Veneers
• Teeth Whitening
• Tooth Colored Fillings

After your initial consultation, our dentist will schedule the stages of your smile makeover. Remember that this is an estimated time frame which is affected by things such as healing time and longer than expected waits for components made in the dental lab. As you get closer to the complete makeover, you will be amazed at the changes you see. Once our dentist completes your makeover, you can share your beautiful smile with the world.
