Smile Makeovers: How They Can Make You Feel Confident Again

Young Female Model Headshot

Refreshing your smile is simple when the only thing you need is a quick teeth-whitening. But it’s overwhelming when the mirror reveals multiple cosmetic problems that need attention before you’ll feel confident with your smile.

At Aesthetika Dental Center, we offer smile makeovers that are totally customized to take care of all your dental needs, and for most patients, we can do all the work in one or two days.

So what is a smile makeover? Here’s the scoop.

Smile makeover essentials

Smile makeovers are designed to improve everything you don’t like about your smile. Your makeover may only need to address cosmetic problems like a gap between your two front teeth or a chipped tooth. But smile makeovers can also include a full mouth reconstruction if you have multiple problems affecting a significant number of teeth.

These are a few examples of the cosmetic concerns we often treat during a smile makeover:

  • Stained teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth with sharp or jagged edges
  • Uneven teeth length

A smile makeover is an exceptional way to treat multiple problems because it’s specifically planned to take care of all your work in the shortest time possible. Your treatments can also be planned to be cost-effective.

Planning for a smile makeover

If you’re thinking about a smile makeover, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rebecca Castaneda. She talks with you about what you don’t like about your smile and the changes you want to include in a smile makeover.

You also need to undergo a dental checkup, because we must identify any tooth or gum problems. We repair all existing dental problems before starting your smile makeover, but they’re included as part of the total plan.

Once Dr. Castaneda knows which problems to target, she recommends the best procedures to meet your goals. In many cases, one procedure can take care of multiple problems.

After you decide which procedures to include in your smile makeover, Dr. Castaneda takes a little time to develop a stepwise plan that defines the order in which the procedures will be performed and the amount of time it will take to finish your makeover.

Many patients place a priority on speed. Whenever possible, we devise a plan to do everything in a day or two. But we can create a phased treatment that gives you more time between the procedures if that works better for you.

Here are a few examples of procedures frequently performed during a smile makeover:

  • Porcelain crown to restore tooth shape, size, and strength
  • Fixed bridge to replace a missing tooth
  • Veneers to correct cracks, gaps, chips, and discolored teeth
  • Porcelain inlays to replace silver fillings
  • Dental implants to replace missing teeth
  • Aesthetic contouring and bonding to reshape your teeth
  • Total mouth and traumatic injury reconstruction

Dr. Castaneda has extensive experience, not only in common cosmetic procedures like veneers, but also in complex smile makeovers that involve bone and soft tissue damage.

When you want a smile makeover, you need a prosthodontist

As a prosthodontist, Dr. Castaneda has training in all the advanced techniques needed to restore your smile no matter what problems you face. She’s also a formally trained artist with a well-honed sense of aesthetics. She consistently delivers smile makeover results that her patients love.
