A blended cosmetic approach for your best smile
Many patients are simply unhappy with the appearance of their teeth and want a “smile makeover.” Often patients want an esthetic enhancement of their smile that also retains a natural healthy appearance of their gums. A prosthodontist has completed advanced training in the restoration of teeth to their natural form, color and function, and the ADA recognizes prosthodontists as specialists in this field, including smile makeovers. Visit with your prosthodontist about using dental veneers, bonding, tooth bleaching, crowns/caps to give you the smile makeover you desire.
What to Expect
Smile makeovers are specific to each patient and each patient’s desires. Depending on the needs of the patient, this can take somewhere between 2-4 appointments. Your prosthodontist will first have a “wax-up” made that will show you on a model what the anticipated new teeth will look like. This will allow the patient to give feedback. Once the patient as approved the wax-up, the teeth will be prepared for temporaries, and the final restorations will be fabricated in the lab.
