Smile Makeover Q & A
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a customized group of procedures with a common goal of improving the way your smile looks and functions. At 2222 Dental, the team evaluates your teeth and jaw before planning your smile makeover. They might take digital X-rays to view your teeth below the gumline and plan your treatment more effectively.
Some smiles have too many flaws for just one procedure. With a smile makeover, the team at 2222 Dental can optimize the positioning of your teeth, repair damage, and top off your treatment with cosmetic services like whitening or veneers. The final result is a smile that fits your face perfectly and has few or no visible flaws.
Which procedures belong in a smile makeover?
Your smile makeover includes cosmetic and restorative procedures. Your smile makeover is custom designed just for you. That means your smile makeover likely includes different procedures than others. The team estimates how long your smile makeover will take to complete and how many appointments you need to attend.
As part of your smile makeover, you can get:
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
The team plans your smile makeover strategically to finish your new look as efficiently as possible. If your smile makeover includes restorations like crowns or bridges, they design them to fit in flawlessly among any of your remaining teeth. They color-match your fillings, crowns, bridges, or veneers after a whitening treatment to make sure your teeth have one uniform shade.
How can I maintain my results after a smile makeover?
Once you see the results of your smile makeover in their entirety, you’ll want to keep your smile looking gorgeous for as long as possible. The team at 2222 Dental can teach you to keep your teeth clean and sparkly with a well-developed home hygiene routine and other tooth care strategies.
To prevent breakage, discoloration, cavities, and other complications after a smile makeover, you should:
- Come in every six months for an exam and cleaning
- Brush and floss your teeth daily
- Avoid biting down on solid objects
- Avoid tearing plastic and other nonfood materials with your teeth
- Report broken restorations or teeth right away
- Wear a mouthguard while playing impact sports
Keeping your smile intact is simple, but you should expect to need replacements for veneers, crowns, and other restorations eventually.
