A smile makeover provides you with the opportunity to change anything about your smile that you don’t like. After your makeover, you’ll experience a confidence boost that can change your life.
What Happens in a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a customized treatment plan of all the cosmetic dental procedures you need to make your teeth look exactly how you want them to.
Some of the procedures that may be included in your makeover are:
Professional teeth bleaching will instantly make your teeth look younger, healthier, and more beautiful.
Veneers are slim shells of porcelain that cover imperfections in your front teeth. These are popular for makeovers because they can dramatically transform teeth while looking very natural.
A little bit of dental bonding can go a long way towards improving the appearance of your teeth. This non-invasive treatment can repair minor cosmetic defects to finish off your smile makeover.
Crowns have long been used to restore weak and damaged teeth. But modern crowns that are made from tooth-colored materials like porcelain and ceramic also have cosmetic value. Including dental crowns in your smile makeover can help enhance both the strength and beauty of your teeth.
A dental implant is the ideal tooth replacement option since it’s the closest you can get to having your natural tooth back. If you’re missing some teeth, implants could be the cornerstone treatment of your makeover.
The primary goal of a smile makeover is to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. But some of these cosmetic procedures (like implants and crowns) are also restorative in nature and will help improve the health of your mouth.
Getting a cosmetic dental makeover takes longer than one day as there are usually multiple different procedures which each have multiple steps. Dr. Tostado will carefully plan the timing of your various procedures so that your makeover is completed as soon as possible.
Your Smile Makeover at 5 Star Dental Group
Your makeover at 5 Star Dental Group will start with a consultation and comprehensive dental exam that includes x-rays, photographs, and other diagnostic imaging. Dr. Tostado will evaluate your oral health and the overall fit of your bite to see what areas could use improvement.
Next, Dr. Tostado will talk with you to find out what your smile goals are and then recommend the treatments that can help you achieve them. You’ll be given a timeline of how long it will take to complete each phase of your makeover and a preview of your final results with wax models.
Your dental restorations will all be made right here in our on-site full dental laboratory. Dr. Craig Carlson, the original owner of 5 Star Dental Group and veteran cosmetic dentist, will oversee the lab work while Dr. Tostado works on your smile.
Dr. Tostado guarantees that you will love your smile after your makeover for several reasons:
Patient-focused planning process
Your makeover starts with a consultation and a detailed treatment plan. Dr. Tostado wants to know exactly what you want your smile to look like before he makes any changes to your teeth. It’s your smile, after all!
Dental diagnostic wax-up
Dr. Tostado will shape some wax onto a model of your teeth to show you what they’ll look like with new veneers or crowns. This will help you understand how much a makeover could change your look.
Trial run with provisionals
This is an especially important part of the treatment process if dental veneers are a part of your makeover. Dr. Tostado will create temporary veneers for you to wear while he works on the permanent ones. This gives you a preview of life with your veneers. Based upon your experience with these provisionals, Dr. Tostado won’t bond your permanent ones in place until you are 100% satisfied with their look and feel.
