The biggest benefit is the confidence that they gain from their smile. Essentially what we will do on a smile makeover when it is one that is just more than one or two teeth that need to be dealt with then we are always going to take study models. I have a couple cases going on right now. We will take study models of the teeth and just figure out what we want to do because sometimes you have to pull back from the case a little bit and think it out and figure out what you want to do. Then what I like to do because I am kind of a hands on type of person, I know you can do them digitally and all that, but I like to actually have the teeth on those models then waxed up, what we call waxed. Then you actually can sit there and form each tooth and show that patient here is what that tooth is going to look like, here is what those teeth are going to look like and that is what I consider the best form of smile makeover there is.
Now when you are ready, then what we will do from there is when we go in and do let's say a veneer case, we will build what we call the temporaries because there is two phases. One is the first one when you actually treat the teeth. The second is when you place the permanent veneers on.
One of the things I like to do is if I have done that smile makeover before I start the process, one I know what I am getting into, I know what I am planning. I know what the patient will or won't like so I already got a lot of the checkmarks done before I even get started and get in and do the work. Then what we do is we use that makeup or that model that we created and we actually from the temporaries off of that. We put that patient into those temporaries for two weeks before they get the permanent. What is beautiful about that is now they have an opportunity to feel pretty darn close to what they are going to be like with the final and they also get an opportunity to let's say they do not like that corner on that tooth, we can change it and we do this. It gives them an opportunity to start living with things before it is permanent and that is the way it is going to be. So that is the beauty of the smile makeover.

How We Can Help
Our complete smile makeovers are custom-designed treatment processes that involve performing examinations, building treatment plans, and undergoing any number of cosmetic procedures. The process is tailored to your specific needs. We work hard to target the areas of your smile that you think need the most work. Our goal is to create dramatic results and have your smile looking like a million bucks!
The first step in the smile makeover process is to schedule your consultation. At this consultation, we will examine your smile, take X-rays, and discuss your smile goals. We can talk about your treatment options and help you answer any questions you may have. The purpose of the consultation, though, is to get to know your smile. We want to understand what you don’t like about it and what needs to be corrected.
Choosing Your Treatments
After we understand your current situation and have discussed with you your smile goals, we can begin to create a treatment plan. This process consists of choosing any number of our cosmetic treatment options and adding them to a plan of action for your smile. You have a variety of options to choose from: gum reshaping, teeth whitening, veneers, and more. We will cater these services to fit your specific needs and help you get the results you want.
Before you actually undergo treatment, we will also use wax-ups to show you what your results will look like! This allows you to get a good understanding of what the treatments will do and how you will look when they are complete. They help us make sure you are getting the results you want!
Enjoying Your New Smile
Once you have chosen your treatments and see the previews, we will schedule your procedures. Completing your procedure may take anywhere from one visit to a few months, depending on your specific needs and the treatments you chose.
When they are complete, though, you will be free to enjoy your new smile! Your peers will notice your increased confidence. You will love it … we promise!
