Smile Makeover Overview
Throughout your life, you may have experienced accidents, dental problems, and other difficulties that made your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at People's Dental is a custom treatment plan of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that will help improve the appearance of your teeth — and the overall health of your mouth. A smile makeover might include tooth whitening (at-home or in-office treatments), porcelain veneers, orthodontics to straighten your teeth, bonding and contouring, and replacing old metal fillings with composite resin. Your smile makeover could also include restorative procedures like crowns or bridges to correct missing teeth. If you are interested in refreshing your smile so it's beautiful and healthy, schedule a consultation with a member of our highly qualified dental team in Springfield, MA to get your customized smile makeover plan.
Best Candidates for Smile Makeover
A smile makeover can help if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth, or if you need several cosmetic procedures. Our team will customize your smile makeover program to meet your concerns and goals and it may contain teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your enamel. Other cosmetic treatments that could be in your plan are veneers or bonding and contouring to improve the shape and length of your teeth and to cover small gaps between your teeth. Dental restorations (crowns and bridges) may be suggested to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At People's Dental, we use custom-made restorations so they blend with your other teeth for a seamless appearance.
Before you receive cosmetic procedures, a member of our team will check to make certain your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems like a misaligned bite or gum disease, this will need to be addressed first.
What To Expect with Smile Makeover
Every smile makeover is personalized, so our team will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, including how many appointments you may need. We will help you plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments of your smile makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures, although other sedation methods can be included if you will need help relaxing due to dental fears or anxieties. Throughout your smile makeover, we will be happy to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
Smile Makeover Follow-Up
Once your smile makeover is done, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth with a good home oral care routine (both brushing and flossing every day). In addition to home care, you should attend dental exams and cleanings at People's Dental so we can monitor your oral health. With attentive care, the results of your smile makeover should last for many years. Touch-up treatments every few years, like teeth whitening, may help to refresh your appearance. Veneers and restorations may also need to be repaired or replaced, which can all be discussed at your appointments.
Smile Makeover Insurance Coverage
During your consultation, we will help you develop a smile makeover that fits both your needs and your budget. We can estimate the cost of your treatment plan and explain payment methods we accept, including medical financing. The cosmetic procedures in a smile makeover are typically not covered by dental insurance plans, but some restorations could be partially covered. We will talk to your insurance company to determine your specific coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
