If you have healthy but unsightly teeth, a complete smile makeover can skyrocket your self-esteem. It is a huge change, though, so we will sit down with you to carefully design and plan all the details of your new smile.

Perfect vs. Natural Smiles

Although many people dream of having the “perfect smile,” this is rarely the best choice. Teeth that are too white, too straight, and too perfect generally look fake. If you are committed to the “perfect smile,” you will likely need plastic surgery on your face to support it.

Instead, we recommend selecting the “natural smile” that is perfect for you. Whiter, straighter, and more perfect than your existing smile, this smile is designed to fit your unique facial features and personality. It is stunning, but it looks like it belongs to you, not a game show host.

Working together, we will design the precise shape, size, and color of each tooth. Considerations include the problems you want to fix, the current alignment and spacing of your teeth, the shape of your face, your skin tone, and your features. Please note that if you have existing oral health issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay, we must correct those before beginning your smile makeover.

Photographic Inspiration

We encourage you to start collecting photographs of smiles that inspire you and noting what you like and don’t like about each one. Bring those, as well as photos of your childhood smile, to your design appointment. Also think about different smile quirks that you like, such as a small gap between the front teeth or slightly pointed canine teeth.

Digital Smile Design

When we have a good understanding of what you want, we will take digital impressions and photos of your existing smile and use them to create a 3-D digital smile model. We will then morph the model into your projected new smile and adjust it until you are completely satisfied.

The next step is to build a mockup of your new smile in wax. This allows us to check for functionality as well as aesthetics, and to make further adjustments as desired. We will not begin working on your teeth until we are all certain that the wax model is just right.

A complete smile makeover is a big investment of time as well as money. Depending on the state your current smile and the results you want, we may need to perform multiple procedures with healing time in between. Some smile makeovers take a year or more to finish. If you truly want the smile you have always imagined, though, we are confident that you will find the results well worth the wait.
