Smile Evaluation, Design, and Makeover Q & A

What is a smile makeover? 

A smile makeover is a complete, customized treatment that incorporates cosmetic and restorative dental solutions to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.

Whatever your cosmetic dental goals might be, a smile makeover takes virtually every aspect of your mouth into consideration, including the color, width, length, shape, and alignment of your teeth, the health and appearance of your gum tissue, and the shape and width of your lips. A smile makeover also considers the overall appearance of your face, including your skin tone and hair color.

Most smile makeovers only require two or three specific cosmetic dentistry procedures, with the overall goal of maximizing your aesthetic potential to give you a smile that best suits your face and personality. 

What are common smile makeover procedures? 

While you may have a clear idea of what you’d like to change about your smile and how it might be done, the exact procedures that Dr. Johnson and his team recommend are based on your oral health needs as well as your specific aesthetic goals. 

The team at South Indy Dental can address virtually any facet of your smile to help you create the desired effect. Many smile makeovers include one or more of the following procedures:  

Bonding

This quick in-office procedure uses a tooth-colored resin material to close gaps or change tooth color. Although it’s often used to repair chipped teeth, it can also be used to close gaps, change tooth length, address uneven edges, and fix other minor imperfections.

Crowns

Porcelain crowns are used to restore strength and appearance to a tooth that’s severely discolored, worn, or cracked. Because crowns are custom-made in a dental lab, they’re designed to match your natural teeth.

Veneers

Dental veneers, or laminates, are ultra-thin, porcelain or composite resin shells that fit snugly over the front side of your visible teeth. In addition to helping restore tooth structure, hide flaws, or add length, veneers can be used to whiten your smile instantly.

Teeth whitening

This simple but highly effective cosmetic treatment is the best way to give patients the bright, vibrant smile they want in under an hour. Just one in-office laser whitening treatment can make your teeth several times brighter.

What can I expect during my smile evaluation?

During your smile evaluation with Dr. Johnson and his team, you may discuss your cosmetic goals, undergo a comprehensive dental exam, and take a photo of your current smile for future comparison. 

Once Dr. Johnson has assessed how your current oral health fits with your smile makeover goals, he can help you choose the approach that best suits your needs, address any concerns you may have, and let you know what kind of results you can expect.
