You have probably heard of full smile makeovers and if your smile could use some sprucing up, you might be interested to learn more about what that actually means.

What Is a Full Smile Makeover?

A full smile makeover is a comprehensive approach to dentistry that combines a variety of restorative and teeth-replacement options to achieve greater function and a beautiful smile.

The first step of a smile makeover will require a comprehensive oral evaluation to identify any oral health conditions that might prevent you from seeking treatment. Some conditions that will require treatment first include:

  • Periodontal (gum) disease
  • Misalignment
  • Decay
  • Infection

Once you are healthy and ready to get started, you might opt to whiten your teeth before beginning restorative dentistry. Because dental restorations do not whiten like your natural teeth, if you would like a brighter shade of white, we can recommend teeth whitening to remove stains and dark areas.

Porcelain Veneers, Crowns, and Bonding

Porcelain veneers are a common component in full smile makeovers. That is because porcelain veneers can change the size, shape, and color of your front teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that look like natural teeth and we place them over your front teeth to erase years of damage and wear.

Veneers cover your front teeth for a beautiful outcome. We may also recommend dental crowns to rebuild worn teeth or to repair broken teeth. Bonding can make small improvements such as filling in chips or changing the shape of a tooth.

Your smile is unique and the best way to find out what type of treatment will give you a full smile makeover, arranging a consultation will be a great place to start. 

Whether you want to make small improvements to your smile or achieve a whole new look with porcelain veneers, our Southeast, TX dental team is here to help you have a smile that makes you feel great about the way you look.
