A smile makeover is an elective process that utilizes several cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve or enhance the entirety of your smile. We believe everyone deserves to have a confident, beautiful smile. If chipped, cracked, missing, or discolored teeth are keeping you from smiling with confidence, a smile makeover may be the solution for you.
A suitable candidate for a smile makeover must have no serious pre-existing oral health issues such as gum disease or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). If you have any oral health issues, they must be treated before beginning your smile makeover.
Dr. Firouzi offers a complimentary initial consultation to all of his prospective smile makeover patients. During this consultation, he will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. You will then discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations for the procedure. Dr. Firouzi will then be able to advise you as to which cosmetic dentistry procedures would be best for you, taking into account your skin tone, hair color, facial structure and any other aesthetic considerations.
Dr. Firouzi is one of the few cosmetic dentists who will fit you with temporaries so you can get a feel for what your final treatment will look like. This tends to give you a much more accurate idea of what to expect than what a computer-generated image can provide.
Your Smile Makeover
Most smile makeovers consist of a combination of procedures intended to enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Your smile makeover may include:
- Tooth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental crowns
- Instant orthodontics
- Dental implants
- Gum recontouring
Each of these procedures takes a different amount of time, and some will have to be performed before others. Therefore, it is difficult to give an accurate estimate of how long your smile makeover will take. If only minor work needs to be done, the entire process may only take a few weeks. More extensive work could take several months.
