Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is a smile makeover the same as full mouth rejuvenation?
A. No, it is not. Full mouth rejuvenation uses many of the same cosmetic methods as a makeover, but it also consists of general and restorative services, such as TMJ or gum disease treatment. A smile makeover is more cosmetic based and is a less extensive process.
Q. What are the most common procedures used for a smile makeover?
A. Every situation is different, but certain procedures are used more commonly than others. These include veneers, tooth-colored fillings, bonding, and gum contouring. Teeth whitening is probably the most commonly used method.
Q. How long does a makeover take?
A. The overall timeframe of a smile makeover varies greatly based on the types and number of procedures. Some methods, like teeth whitening, take one visit. Many of the procedures require at least two visits, and some are spaced weeks apart. Dental implants usually take the longest, as it takes numerous steps. The whole process can take months to complete.
Q. Is there recovery time after a smile makeover?
A. Many of the procedures do not require recovery time. Others, such as implants, may include some discomfort and swelling after the procedure. Patients may need to restrict physical activity and temporarily change eating habits until healing is complete. Our team will provide patients with instructions and tips to recover after treatment.
Q. What aspects does the dentist consider when planning a smile makeover?
A. We consider many features besides the general state of your teeth and gums. Detailed aspects of the teeth, such as their size, color, and shape, are factored in; along with the condition of the gums. The dentist also looks at the different features of the face and the patient’s skin tone, which makes a makeover especially effective.
