WHAT IS A SMILE MAKEOVER?
Throughout your life, you may have endured injuries and experienced dental issues that have made your teeth look less than perfect. A smile makeover at Oakridge Dental is a customized treatment plan comprising restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that can help improve the look of your teeth, as well as your general oral health. A smile makeover could consist of teeth whitening (at-home or in-office treatments), cosmetic veneers, orthodontics to straighten your teeth, and replacing old metal fillings with composite resin. Your smile makeover may also include dental restorations, such as bridges or crowns, to correct gaps in your smile. If you want to know more about improving your smile so that it remains healthy and beautiful for years to come, schedule an appointment with board-certified family dentist Dr. Brian Call at his office in Farmington, UT to receive your personalized smile makeover plan.
WHO CAN GET A SMILE MAKEOVER?
A smile makeover can help if you want to enhance the appearance of your teeth or if you require multiple cosmetic and restorative procedures to achieve your goals. Dr. Call will develop a fully customized smile makeover treatment plan to address your concerns and aims, which could consist of teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your enamel. Other cosmetic treatments that might be part of your plan are veneers or bonding and contouring to improve the length and shape of your teeth and mask small gaps or imperfections. Restorations (like crowns and bridges) may be recommended to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Oakridge Dental, we use custom-made restorations to ensure they blend with your regular teeth for a seamless finish.
Before you receive any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Call will need to make sure that your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health problems, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will need to be addressed first.
WHAT DOES A SMILE MAKEOVER TREATMENT PLAN INVOLVE?
Each smile makeover is customized to suit each patient's unique goals and needs so Dr. Call will go over what you can expect during your treatment, such as how many visits you'll need to complete your smile transformation. He will work with you to plan your appointments for each of the procedures that make up your smile makeover. Local anesthesia may be needed to perform some treatments, but other sedation options may be included if you need extra help relaxing throughout your session. Dr. Call utilizes every tool and technique at his disposal to help you feel comfortable and ensure that your experience is easy and enjoyable. During your smile makeover, Dr. Call and his team will happily answer any questions you may have regarding your procedures, recovery, and anything else.
Once your smile makeover is finished, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth with a good home oral care routine that includes twice-daily brushing and flossing. Along with routine care, you should attend dental exams and cleanings at Oakridge Dental so we can continue to monitor the health and appearance of your gums and teeth. With good maintenance, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for many years. Touch-up treatments every few years, like teeth whitening, might help to refresh your appearance. Veneers and restorations may have to be repaired or replaced over time, but as long as they are properly taken care of, they should last for several years.
