At Champagne Smiles, we’re dedicated to giving you the smile you’ve always wanted––because everyone deserves a Champagne Smile. One of the treatments we offer in our Monmouth, NJ office is a smile makeover. The patients we see for this procedure often spend most of their lives feeling unhappy with their smiles. Seeing their transformation is one of the most gratifying experiences we have as dentists; if we can give our patients a renewed sense of confidence and allow them to smile proudly, we know we’ve done our job.
If you’re considering a smile makeover, you may be wondering what to expect from the procedure. Here’s a quick primer on what’s involved in a smile makeover.
No Two Smiles Are Alike
We say that often at Champagne Smiles, and this is especially true when it comes to smile makeovers. A smile makeover for you will be different from a smile makeover for your neighbor, your sibling, or anyone else. That’s because every smile makeover plan is based on your unique dental needs. While the focus is aesthetic, restorative treatments may also be part of our plan. Common reasons for choosing a smile makeover include being unhappy with the shape and size of your teeth, staining and yellowing, gaps and chipped teeth, and overcrowding. Usually, patients have a combination of two or more of these concerns.
With these concerns in mind, we tailor a custom treatment plan just for you. This plan could include:
We see our patients as partners in the smile makeover process. We collaborate closely with you; we want to know what you don’t like about your smile and what your goals are for treatment.
The Smile Makeover Process
You’ll come in for an initial consultation; in addition to discussing a potential treatment plan with you, we’ll take any imaging needed during this appointment and conduct a thorough exam to make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. During this appointment, we’ll be able to show you a digital rendering of what you’ll look like once your smile makeover is complete.
Because smile makeovers comprise several different dental procedures, you should expect to come in for multiple appointments. Some procedures are more involved than others, so the amount of visits needed depends on the treatments we’re performing and the extent of the work needed.
The Results of a Smile Makeover
It goes without saying that the result of a smile makeover is a beautiful smile. What’s even more impactful, though, are the results patients see in their lives.
When they laugh, they no longer cover their mouths with their hands to keep people from seeing their teeth. If someone takes out their phone to snap a picture, they don’t turn away or duck out of view. No more closed-mouth smiles; no more self-consciousness. Patients who have been embarrassed by their smiles for years feel like a weight has been lifted from their shoulders after their smile makeovers. It’s a transformational experience that goes far beyond whiter or straighter teeth.
