Many of these procedures can be done in one sitting, or they may be more involved and take a handful of weeks to schedule and accomplish. Whatever the case may be, Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry is here to help you understand when the best time to start this journey is. Below we’ll talk about factors you should consider and how every smile makeover is unique to the individual. The only factor that is always the same is that at the end of the procedure(s), you are left with an amazing smile that you can take pride in.

Dental Procedures Available

A smile makeover can involve any number of dental procedures, as we mentioned above. So when you’re considering if it's a good time to get a smile makeover, it's important to consider what you want to change about your smile. Is it something on the surface perhaps? Slightly offset teeth with a somewhat dull smile can be combined with tooth correction and a whitening procedure to make your smile pop! Or if you have minor damage to some of your teeth these procedures might be combined with dental bonding to do repair work to your natural teeth. 

Otherwise, it may be that you are just unhappy with everything about your smile. In that case, we can replace it with a veneer procedure. This involves filing down your teeth and putting artificial ones over them to give you a perfectly manufactured smile that you can be proud of. This can also be done on a smaller scale with dental implants if you only have one problem tooth that has to go to bring the confidence back for your smile. Whatever the case may be, whether it is one sitting worth of procedures or many planned out over time, we can get your smile to the point that you desire.

Allotting Sufficient Time

As we mentioned, many different types of procedures can be done for the sake of a smile makeover. Some can be done in a day and have no recovery time needed, whereas others need to be done in a program over multiple weeks. And some of those may take a week or more to recover properly. This is why it's important to talk to us and Dr. Schmid at Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry. We will discuss how long your makeover will take, and you can set aside the appropriate amount of time you will need to recover and finalize your procedures.


Cost when it comes to a smile makeover varies per individual and what they want to be done. We do our best to have competitive pricing that is fair per market standards today. However, we do our best to work with you and come up with payment plans that work within your budget. We believe that no one should have to go through a lack of confidence in their smile, and we want to help our patients avoid prolonging that feeling.
