Smile Makeovers Q & A

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover uses a combination of cosmetic dental procedures to help you achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Dr. Preston and her team can help you decide which procedures are right for you based on your smile goals, dental health, and appearance. Procedures may include:

  • Invisalign
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns
  • Veneers

A smile makeover may take a few months or longer to complete, depending on what procedures you choose to use. The cost of a smile makeover can also vary widely depending on what services you need. Your team talks to you about costs before you begin receiving services.

What dental health conditions can a smile makeover treat?

A smile makeover can be both cosmetic and restorative. It can boost the appearance of your teeth, while treating dental conditions such as:

  • Missing teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Cavities or tooth decay

Not only will you enjoy a brighter smile, but it may also be easier to chew and speak than it was before.

How will my dentist customize my smile makeover?

Your smile makeover should be beautiful, but also natural-looking. Dr. Preston takes into account many of your existing dental and facial features to customize your smile makeover. Together, you’ll choose what color what your teeth should be, how tall your teeth should be, and even the texture of your teeth.

Whether you keep all your natural teeth or receive implants or veneers, Dr. Preston can customize these features to create a beautiful smile that brightens your whole face.

How do I maintain my smile makeover?

A smile makeover can cost thousands of dollars overall; you should protect your investment by protecting your teeth. After your makeover, you’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth as you did before and should continue to receive cleanings twice per year.

In addition, you should avoid:

  • Chewing on pen caps or other hard items that aren’t food and can crack veneers
  • Sugary beverages that can rot teeth
  • Red wine, tea, or coffee that can stain teeth and veneers
  • Between-meal snacks that can cause tooth decay
  • Smoking, which harms all aspects of dental health
  • Grinding your teeth, which can crack veneers

Veneers or dental implants may need replacement over time, but typically not for 10 years or more if you take good care of your smile.
