Why Do a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover can be something essential for the health of your mouth, something you desire for the aesthetic value of your smile, or both. It involves the dentist doing a thorough examination of your smile and determining the treatment options that would best fit your overall smile goals. If he notices other problems or issues that should be fixed, those will be factored in as well.
The Smile Design Process
Dr. Sowell is extremely thorough and every aspect of your mouth will be covered throughout the smile design process. First, the health, structure, and function of your mouth are examined. He’ll be on the lookout for tooth decay, gum disease, cracked or fractured teeth, your bite, TMJ problems, and others.
Next, a full cosmetic examination is done. We take a look at your teeth and gums. This is where we get your input and see what you want to change about your smile. Maybe you want your teeth to be whiter or you think you have a gummy smile. You’ll tell us your ideal time frame and we inform you of all of our cosmetic dentistry options.
Lastly, a comprehensive examination is done. We’ll take a look at the symmetry of your mouth, including lips, teeth, and gums. The shape, arrangement, and color of your teeth are examined. Using state of the art technology, we get a full picture of your current smile. Dr. Sowell is then able to apply the changes that you want to make and give you a model of what your new smile will look like.
If there are any changes you’d like made, Dr. Sowell can make those tweaks and show you the results. For each patient, we design a customized long-term treatment plan based on the data we’ve collected. This is structured to factor in your time constraints, budgets, and desires for your new and improved smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
We’re proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic treatments you can look into to perfect your smile. One of the most popular treatments is porcelain veneers. These are a solid option because they’re capable of helping with so many dental problems. They’re made of a thin shell of dental ceramic that goes in front of and around your tooth. This means they can take care of tooth discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, and many other issues.
