Smile Makeovers Q & A

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a term that describes a combination of treatments that can transform your smile. The process is entirely customized, so your smile makeover from 286 Madison Dental is completely different than the experience of another patient of the practice. 

The process begins with a comprehensive dental exam and cleaning. This gives the team a chance to evaluate your teeth and gums and determine the treatments needed to optimize your smile. 

What procedures might a smile makeover include?

The sky’s the limit when considering procedures that can transform your smile. Some of the available smile makeover options include:

  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Tooth bonding
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Gum reshaping
  • Crown lengthening
  • Invisalign®

During your consultation, you learn which options are best suited for your specific set of needs. You can select the treatments that align with your aesthetic goals and your budget.

What is the first step in a smile makeover?

After a dental exam at 286 Madison Dental, your practitioner discusses your next steps. If there is any untreated decay or gum disease, you likely need to address those issues prior to moving forward with your smile makeover.  

Having realistic expectations is an important part of a successful smile makeover. Fortunately, there are imaging programs that can give you an idea of what your smile will look like once all of your treatments are complete. 

This is definitely part of the process where you should ask lots of questions to ensure you know exactly what to expect.

How long does a smile makeover take?

That depends on your specific needs and your overall dental health. Some treatments require preparation and a period of healing. Dental implants, for example, may require one or more tooth extractions prior to installing the implant, as well as a period of healing.

Treatments like veneers or inlays/onlays take less time from start to finish. Gum reshaping may be needed prior to getting a crown or dental veneers, and it takes a few weeks for your gums to heal before you can move on to the next stage of your treatment plan.
