Smile Makeover Q & A

What does a smile makeover of the mouth involve?

A smile makeover, which is also called a full mouth rehabilitation or reconstruction combines a variety of dental procedures to correct multiple dental issues simultaneously to improve the function or appearance of the teeth, gums, bite mechanics, and other structures or issues. When a number of dental issues or conditions need to be restored or corrected, Dr. Green carefully plans and coordinates the order of service to ensure the best possible results.

What treatments are involved in a smile makeover?

The exact treatments used by Dr. Green will vary depending on the types of issues being addressed. The procedures can include many different dental services, the most commonly performed are:

  • Crowns to correct defects and provide strength
  • Dental implants and bridges to restore missing teeth
  • Gum grafting and bone grafting to augment regions where tissues are lacking
  • Onlays to correct large cavities and offer natural-looking results
  • Porcelain or ceramic veneers to correct cracks, chips, gaps, stains, and uneven tooth edges
  • Root planing and scaling for periodontal, or gum, disease
  • TMJ treatments
  • Whitening procedures to remove surface stains

What happens during a smile makeover?

When a patient will benefit from a smile makeover, the process begins with a consultation and assessment of the mouth by the dentist. Dr. Green will discuss the expectations and goals of the patient and the treatment plan is created to address those specific concerns. The patient will make several visits to the office over the following weeks and months for the treatments. Some of the treatments will be taken care of in one visit, like fillings and in-office teeth whitening, while others may need multiple visits for full installation such as veneers, crowns, or any orthodontic treatment. Throughout the delivery of the treatment plan, Dr. Green will use the most advanced technology available to minimize any discomfort that may be experienced.
