Smile Makeover Consultation
The best candidates for a smile makeover are individuals who are in good oral health. It is important that any cavities or infections are properly treated by Dr. Champagne before additional aesthetic procedures are performed.
During a consultation for a smile makeover at Dr. Champagne’s New Jersey office, Dr. Champagne will take the time to listen to your concerns and understand the aspects of your smile that you would like to improve. He will also perform a comprehensive dental exam, including X-rays and perhaps making models of your teeth to get a full analysis of your smile and your oral health.
Based on the findings of the exam, Dr. Champagne will devise an inclusive treatment plan and walk you through each step of treatment, answering any questions you may have. Using state-of-the-art digital technology, Dr. Champagne will actually be able to show you a “preview” of your new smile, so you know you’ll be getting the results you desire.
How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?
Because smile makeovers involve several dental procedures, they typically take place throughout several appointments (though there are some exceptions). However, Dr. Champagne and his staff understand that you lead a busy life and always try to minimize your time in the dentist’s chair. Under the care of our experienced team, you’ll have the bright, beautiful smile you’ve hoped for, in no time.
Frequently Asked Questions About Smile Makeovers
Can dentists fix really bad teeth?
Yes, with the latest advances in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, there’s no smile that can’t be fixed! If you’ve spent years, decades, or even your whole life feeling embarrassed by your teeth, there’s no better time to get a smile makeover to restore your confidence and allow you to finally smile proudly.
What are smile makeovers?
Smile makeovers are a treatment option that comprehensively addresses all dental problems with restorative, cosmetic, and periodontal procedures to dramatically transform a patient’s smile. A smile makeover typically includes two or more procedures that are performed over the course of several dental appointments. Smile makeovers allow us to strengthen compromised teeth, treat decay, and repair damage in addition to correcting cosmetic imperfections like gaps, crowding, stains, chips, and irregularities in tooth shape and size.
How much does a smile makeover cost?
The cost of a smile makeover can vary dramatically from one patient to the next depending on the procedures that are needed. A smile makeover involving dental implants will cost more than one that only requires dental veneers and gum contouring; some smile makeover treatments that address oral health issues are likely to be covered by dental insurance, while smile makeovers that focus mostly an aesthetics may cost more because they must be paid for out of pocket. The best way to find out how much your smile makeover will cost is to book an appointment with Dr. Champagne for a consultation; he’ll go over your treatment goals, the procedures needed to achieve them, and the total costs involved.
Can I make my teeth bigger?
The amount of discomfort you experience with a smile makeover depends on the procedures you’re having performed. Rest assured that whenever you’re in the exam chair at our office, you won’t experience any pain while we work because we’ll always use local anesthetic injections to keep you comfortable if we’re performing an invasive procedure like dental implants or preparing teeth for crowns. As the local anesthesia wears off in the hours after your procedure, you are likely to feel some soreness, but this can usually be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medications. It should also be noted that many of the cosmetic procedures used in smile makeovers do not require local anesthesia because they’re performed on the outermost layers of the enamel and produce no pain.
Is a smile makeover painful?
Yes, we can make your teeth bigger. One of the common complaints we address with smile makeovers is teeth that are too small—they may be worn down from teeth grinding, malocclusion (jaw misalignment), or simply a smaller size due to genetics. Veneers are a great way to add length to your teeth in a way that looks natural.
