A smile makeover is a group of procedures that are designed to improve the total look of the smile. The team at CONFIDENT provide expert consultations and services to help patients who are unhappy with any aspect of their smile or who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile overall. Smile makeovers are typically categorized as cosmetic dentistry procedures.
The main reason that patients get smile makeovers is that they want a more aesthetically pleasing smile. While the aesthetics are the main goal for many people, functionality can also play a role. When teeth are cracked or chipped, some of the smile makeover procedures like veneers and crowns can improve both appearance and strength of the teeth. Straightening the teeth with Invisalign® can help patients to speak and eat more easily, so it has both aesthetic and structural benefits, too.
Teeth whitening, teeth straightening with the clear Invisalign® aligner system and veneers or crowns are among the most common smile makeover procedures. Your dentist at CONFIDENT will make sure you receive the procedures and treatments to transform your smile.
It depends on the patient and the insurance company. Many insurance companies view smile makeovers as purely cosmetic procedures, so coverage may not be available. However, there are several dental financing options that allow patients to pay for their smile makeover in a series of installments if desired.
A smile makeover and full mouth reconstruction are not the same things, although they may sometimes be confused. Smile makeovers are focused on the aesthetic angle of a patient’s smile, while full mouth reconstruction is focused on the functionality of a patient’s mouth. Smile makeovers are generally done on patients who have a healthy mouth already, while a full mouth reconstruction is designed to bring an unhealthy mouth back to a state of good health again.
