What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive dental treatment plan designed to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. This may involve a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures.
Smile Makeover vs. Full Mouth Reconstruction
Smile makeovers and full mouth reconstructions are comprehensive dental treatments that aim to improve the appearance and function of a patient’s teeth and gums. While a smile makeover focuses primarily on cosmetic improvements, full mouth reconstruction restores the health and functionality of the mouth. Work closely with your Chicago dentist to determine which treatment plan best meets our needs.
Benefits of Smile Makeovers
A smile makeover offers many benefits, including:
- Boosting Self-Confidence: A beautiful smile can increase your confidence and improve your self-esteem, allowing you to feel more comfortable in social situations.
- Improving Oral Health: Many Smile Makeover procedures not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also correct underlying dental issues, such as cavities or gum disease, resulting in better oral health.
- Enhancing Appearance: Smile Makeover can correct several cosmetic dental issues, such as yellowing, crooked, or missing teeth, improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Smile Makeover Customizable Options
Smile makeovers involve several dental procedures to address different cosmetic or oral issues. The treatments include:
- Teeth Whitening: This popular cosmetic dental procedure removes stains and yellow from your teeth, giving you a brighter, more youthful smile.
- Porcelain Veneers: These thin, custom-made shells cover the front of your teeth, hiding any imperfections such as chips, gaps, or discoloration.
- Dental Crowns: Crowns are cap-like structures that cover a damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its shape and function.
- Dental Bridges: Bridges restore one or more adjacent missing teeth to improve your smile’s function and appearance.
- Dentures: Our denture solutions can restore some or all missing teeth to restore your smile’s healthy bite, function, and appearance.
- Dental Implants: This permanent tooth replacement solution mimics the look and feel of natural teeth, helping to restore your smile’s functionality.
- Invisalign: These clear aligners gradually straighten crooked or misaligned teeth, offering a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces.
