What Does a Smile Makeover Involve?

Smile makeovers are designed to meet your specific dental needs and goals. Whether your teeth have become yellow and stained over time, you have broken or missing teeth, or simply want to change the size and shape of one or more teeth for cosmetic reasons, a smile makeover can improve your oral health and transform your smile.

Our dentists and dental team at Arden Dental Group offer a range of cosmetic and general dentistry services for all your smile makeover needs at our office in the greater Asheville, North Carolina, area.

What’s included in a smile makeover?

Every smile makeover is different depending on the individual’s goals. A typical smile makeover normally includes one or more cosmetic treatments to change or improve the size, shape, and color of your teeth. 

But if you have any oral health issues like tooth decay or signs of gum disease, we may recommend addressing them before moving on to your cosmetic treatments.

Typical treatments included in a smile makeover

Your smile makeover is custom-designed specifically for you, so the procedures involved vary depending on your oral health needs at the time and your goals. 

Some typical dental treatments that make up a smile makeover include:

A smile makeover can consist of a few simple improvements like whitening stained and discolored teeth and fixing chips or gaps with cosmetic bonding or veneers. 

Many people also choose to invest in a smile makeover for purely cosmetic reasons, like changing the size and shape of their teeth to make their smile look more symmetrical.

Start with a dental exam

If it’s been more than six months since your last dental exam, the first step is to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Even if your teeth and gums look and feel healthy, regular dental exams and professional cleanings lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

We perform a comprehensive dental exam and cleaning and make recommendations depending on your oral health needs and goals for your smile makeover. 

Is a smile makeover right for me?

Are you unhappy with one or more aspects of your smile? Whether it’s the color or size and shape of your teeth, the decision to invest in a smile makeover is a personal one.

Your smile is one of the first things people notice, so there’s never a wrong time to invest in your oral health and cosmetic improvements.
