How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

Before we can recommend any specific cosmetic treatment, Dr. Hermen will need to speak with you in more detail during your initial consultation. During this visit, we take time to get to know your smile goals and the specific procedures that will best help you achieve them.

Common treatments used as part of a smile makeover plan include teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, and cosmetic dental bonding. As part of your treatment planning, we can even perform visual smile design to help you envision your future smile before beginning any stage of treatment!

By the end of your consultation, we’ll have a detailed plan on how to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having as well as the specific treatments in mind to accomplish this goal. If you have any questions about your plan, your consultation will be the best time to ask them.

The Benefits of Getting a Smile Makeover

Keep in mind that smile makeovers can do more than simply give you a dazzling smile you’ll love to show off to friends and family. While this is the main benefit you can expect, you may also notice improved mouth function, especially if you plan to receive dental crowns or Invisalign. When you have broken or misaligned teeth, addressing these issues can help you prevent long-term oral health problems that can appear later (i.e. further breakdown of enamel leading to infections, stress on the jaw joints, etc.)

With that said, the most notable benefit you can expect from a smile makeover is boosted confidence and a more youthful appearance. The results of your smile makeover should also last a very long time as long as you practice routine brushing and flossing every day and stay on top of routine checkups.

Understanding the Cost of a Smile Makeover

The cost of smile makeovers vary dramatically depending on the patient’s needs. Dr. Hermen will walk you through the expected costs of your treatment plan well in advance so you’re never caught off guard by surprised fees. In the simplest terms, the more treatments you need to achieve your dream smile, the more expensive your plan will be.

Should you need additional help paying for your treatment, our office is happy to recommend third-party financing options like CareCredit. This service can help you pay for treatments over a longer period of time in smaller, monthly installments.

Smile Makeover FAQs

A smile makeover can revamp your pearly whites, but it’s a big investment. It’s normal to have some concerns before you’re ready to move forward. Dr. Jeffrey F.

Contact our office to speak with a member of our dental team.

Does a Smile Makeover Hurt?

Dr. Hermen will keep your comfort as his top priority. Depending on your situation, he can use a numbing medication to block any pain signals. You might feel some pressure or odd sensations, but you won’t have any pain. However, certain procedures can make your mouth sore for a few days. You can manage any tenderness using an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

A smile makeover isn’t a single procedure, so the timeline looks different for everyone. Besides your initial consultation, you must have healthy teeth and gums before any elective service. Therefore, it’s not unusual to require a little prep work before getting started, like a dental cleaning or gum disease treatment. Depending on your treatment plan, some procedures can be performed in one appointment, like dental bonding. However, other treatments can take multiple appointments, like veneers or dental implants. Dr. Hermen uses the latest techniques and technologies to streamline dental care.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Last?

Every procedure has a different life expectancy and many factors will affect the duration of your results, like your aftercare routine. You can get the most from your investment by brushing your teeth for 2 minutes twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Commit to flossing your teeth at least once a day. Limit sugars and starches to prevent tooth decay. Moderate hard or chewy foods. Besides caring for your smile at home, schedule a cleaning and checkup every 6 months. Dr. Hermen will keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its best.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for a Smile Makeover?

It’s rare for dental insurance to cover elective services. However, some cosmetic procedures also offer restorative benefits. If treatment is medically necessary, your insurance may cover some of the expenses after meeting your annual deductible. Your dental benefits may also include your consultation, diagnostic services, and preliminary procedures. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any appropriate benefits. Besides using your dental insurance, Dr. Hermen accepts many payment methods to keep a dazzling smile affordable, like monthly payments using CareCredit. We will review all your options during your consultation.
