We understand that each smile is unique at Aventura Dental Center, which is why we offer smile makeovers to those who wish to improve their aesthetic. This procedure combines both cosmetic and restorative treatments to revitalize and repair the teeth and gums. Depending on your needs and goals, a smile makeover can consist of teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, gum sculpting, and more. Our skilled and highly trained dentist, Dr. David Bistritz, will examine your teeth carefully to create a treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. Call our Aventura, FL office today to learn more.
What to Expect
A smile makeover begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Bistritz. During this time, a patient can discuss their concerns and smile makeover goals. After assessing the health and condition of the mouth, Dr. Bistritz will work with you to create your custom smile makeover treatment plan. Once the plan is created, he will help schedule your appointment(s) for your cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
The ideal candidate for a smile makeover is anyone who struggles with significant dental issues that affect the teeth or gums. These patients typically have chipped, missing, stained, or misaligned teeth that affect the way their smile looks. A smile makeover resolves each of these specific concerns with cosmetic and restorative methods.
Patients seeking a smile makeover should have otherwise good dental health. If there are severe oral health concerns, these may need to be addressed prior to the treatments included in a smile makeover.
How Many Procedures Can You Combine in a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover can consist of several procedures, depending on the unique needs of the patient. The following are all treatments that may be part of your smile makeover:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
- Gum sculpting
While all of these procedures may be included in your smile makeover, they may not be performed at the same time. Your individualized smile makeover treatments may be spaced out over multiple appointments. Your exact treatment plan will be discussed and determined during your consultation examination.
What Conditions Can a Smile Makeover Fix?
A smile makeover can address several dental issues that affect the teeth and gums. These issues include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Stained and discolored teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Misaligned teeth or gaps between teeth
- Missing teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Disproportionate tooth size or shape
It is important to note that smile makeovers do not intend to treat dental health concerns. Conditions like gingivitis, tooth decay, and more will need to be addressed separately before having a smile makeover.
How Long Will the Smile Makeover Procedure Take?
The length of a smile makeover will vary from patient to patient. Individual treatments like teeth whitening can take as little as twenty minutes, whereas dental implants can take several hours. Since each patient needs a different combination of treatments, the duration of your total smile makeover will be unique. Certain treatments need to be performed in separate appointments, which can space your smile makeover out over several weeks.
During your smile makeover consultation, a treatment plan will be designed specifically for you. This will give you a timeframe of how long your smile makeover will take to complete.
How Long Will the Results of My Smile Makeover Last?
The results of your smile makeover can last for years if well-maintained. To keep teeth and gums healthy after veneer placement, dental implants, or gum sculpting, you must practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing and flossing twice daily and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash. If your implants or veneers become broken, stained, or damaged, you may need replacements after several years.
To maintain the results of teeth whitening procedures, you can have in-home touch-ups throughout the year. Additional in-office teeth whitening treatments can be performed yearly to provide optimal whiteness. To prolong your white smile, you should avoid stain-causing drinks or foods, such as coffee, chocolate, and berries.
Once your smile makeover is complete, you should talk to Dr. Bistritz about creating a good home oral care routine to maintain the health and appearance of your teeth. With proper care, a smile makeover can have long-lasting effects. Depending on the treatments performed during the smile makeover, Dr. Bistritz may recommend special dental products or more frequent dental exams and cleanings.
Smile makeovers usually include cosmetic procedures that are not covered by dental insurance, but some restorative procedures may be covered, so our office will confirm your benefits and coverage to determine your personal cost. To help all of our patients afford their best smile, we accept several payment options and we offer financing through our office, which can be discussed during the consultation.
