Unsure if you qualify for a smile makeover? This type of service can be as limited or as extensive as you want. When talking with Dr. Renkuntla, the two of you will discuss what problem areas of your smile you would like to fix. After examining your oral cavity and making notes of where and how to address each issue, he will formulate a treatment plan based on your individual needs.
Some of the most common dental problems that can be fixed with a smile makeover include:
Once Dr. Renkuntla determines how best to treat each type of problem occurring within your mouth, he will likely recommend one or more of the following treatments to help you achieve the smile you deserve:
If you are missing one or more teeth, it may be necessary to consider certain tooth replacement solutions as well, such as dental implants, partial or full dentures, or a fixed bridge.
Everyone who receives a smile makeover will undergo a different process. Each treatment plan is customized, and the timeline for completed results will vary. To start, though, you will schedule an appointment with Dr. Renkuntla to discuss your goals. After examining your smile and formulating a treatment plan, he will take impressions of your teeth. Depending on the recommended treatments you receive, you can expect dramatic results in as little as an hour or as long as 2 weeks or more.
Typically, in-office teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding requires only one visit to our office and about an hour or so to see results. At-home whitening kits can take about two weeks to see noticeable changes in your smile, and porcelain veneers often require at least two visits because of the time it takes for technicians to create your customized veneers.
If you need a metal-free dental restoration, this, too, can vary in the length of time because dental crowns and bridges often require several weeks to be created. A filling, however, can take only one visit to our office and only an hour or so of your time.
When considering the reason for a smile makeover, you realize that the ultimate goal is two-fold: to not only improve your appearance but also minimize the potential for oral health risks in the future. Smile makeovers accomplish much more than enhancing aesthetics. By eliminating the chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and even misshapen teeth, you are taking a step forward to decrease your risk of tooth decay, cavity formations, gum disease, and other common dental problems.
Not only will you undergo a transformative process, but you’ll receive life-changing results that will carry with you forever.
