If you are unhappy with several aspects of your smile, a smile makeover may be right for you. While many people can correct their smile with a single procedure, others may require multiple procedures to achieve their goals. This is where a smile makeover comes in. With a smile makeover, several procedures can be done at once in order to fully correct both cosmetic and functional aspects of your smile.
Austin cosmetic dentist John Schmid, DDS will work with you to come up with a custom treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns and goals. To schedule your initial smile makeover consultation, call Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry today at 512-329-5967.
Designing Your Ideal Smile
The smile makeover procedure at Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry in Austin is entirely collaborative. From your first consultation, Dr. Schmid will work closely with you to help you choose the treatments that will give you the best end results.
Your input is valued and respected at each stage of the smile makeover process. We will not try to force any procedure on you that you don't want, and we will lay out the benefits and potential drawbacks of each procedure honestly in order to help you make the best choice. In addition, before any decision is finalized, you will have the chance to view a mockup of what the treatment can provide and how it will look.
Smile Makeover Options
Smile makeovers are completely customized for the patient, so no two smile makeovers will look exactly the same. There are a number of different cosmetic and general dentistry procedures that can be done to help you achieve your goals, including:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental bonding
- Dental implants
- Dental crowns
- White dental fillings
- Teeth whitening
- Gum recontouring
Porcelain veneers are an extremely popular option during a smile makeover, as they can correct a number of issues with the teeth in a minimally invasive manner with amazing results. A porcelain veneer is essentially a false front for a tooth, that can cover imperfections such as:
- Mild crookedness
If your tooth has significant decay or extreme crookedness, porcelain veneers may not be the best option. However, for mild to moderate cosmetic problems, they are a long lasting and effective option.
Benefits of a Smile Makeover
For patients with a number of issues with their teeth or gums, a smile makeover may be an attractive option to fix everything at once, rather than having to undergo multiple procedures over a longer amount of time. Many patients prefer to obtain full results in a shorter amount of time, rather than having to visit the dentist multiple times over the course of several months.
Other benefits of a smile makeover can include:
- Fix functional and cosmetic issues at the same time
- Enjoy a healthier and more beautiful smile
- Correcting all of your problems instead of just one or two leads to better oral and general health
- Feel confident in your smile again
Smile Makeover Cost
The cost of a smile makeover varies from patient to patient, and depends on which procedures you need. A smile makeover involving just teeth whitening and dental bonding will cost less than a smile makeover that requires multiple crowns and a full set of porcelain veneers, for example.
Dr. Schmid will give you a cost estimate for your smile makeover during your initial consultation, and will work with you to create a treatment plan that works with your budget.
Insurance generally fully or partially covers medically necessary dental procedures, but does not cover cosmetic procedures. In order to help you finance your smile makeover and ensure that you can obtain the best treatments for your unique situation, we also offer financing plans through CareCredit. We will discuss payment and financing options during your initial free consultation.
Smile Makeover Candidates
The ideal candidate for a smile makeover:
- Is in general good health
- Does not have gum disease
- Has multiple dental concerns to be treated
If your teeth are generally healthy and you only need one type of treatment to achieve great results, you are probably not a candidate for a full smile makeover. If you have multiple issues that cannot be corrected with just one solution, then a smile makeover may be the right choice.
