A stunning smile is important for your appearance and self-confidence. If you have multiple aesthetic concerns, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover at our Bridgewater, VA, practice. This customized combination of cosmetic procedures can dramatically enhance your look. Before your makeover, Dr. Joe McIntyre, Dr. Dan Whiting, or Dr. Kelsey Rockey will conduct a thorough consultation, analyzing your goals, health needs, and budget in order to select the most appropriate procedures for you. At Smiles for Life Dental Care, we offer advanced treatments, and we use the latest materials. After your makeover, you can expect to enjoy a transformed, yet completely natural-looking, smile.
Are You a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
Because a smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment, it can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns. You may be a candidate for a smile makeover if you struggle with:
- Dental discoloration
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Worn teeth
- Slight misalignment
- Small gaps between teeth
- A gummy smile or uneven gum line
- Excess gum tissue or gum recession
Before you can undergo a makeover, Dr. McIntyre, Dr. Whiting, or Dr. Rockey will evaluate your oral health. Your dentist will need to treat any existing cavities or gum disease before recommending cosmetic treatment.
Your makeover will be a one-of-a-kind treatment, tailored to your particular goals.
What Is Included in a Smile Makeover?
Smile makeovers are custom-designed so your makeover will be a one-of-a-kind treatment, tailored to your particular goals. We will always begin with a consultation to help you choose the right procedures. At this time, we can also use our advanced imaging software to show you the projected results of your makeover.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most common treatments to include in a makeover because they can achieve very dramatic results. Your dentist will secure these thin shells to the front of your teeth, covering up blemishes and even reshaping your teeth. We offer both traditional and minimal-prep veneers and will carefully select the right type for you.
Frequently, we will combine gum contouring with veneers. If you have excessive gum tissue or an uneven gum line, contouring can give you a bigger, brighter-looking smile. During this procedure, Dr. McIntyre, Dr. Whiting, or Dr. Rockey will trim off a small layer of soft tissue, using conservative techniques to minimize discomfort.
Teeth whitening is another popular option, and it is both convenient and affordable. This treatment uses whitening gel to chemically break down stains, leaving your smile several shades lighter. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening. Both treatments can provide comparable results, so the right one for you will depend on your budget and health needs.
We also offer several treatments to address misalignment. Invisalign® uses custom-made clear aligner trays to straighten teeth. The aligners can correct a range of orthodontic issues, and they are virtually invisible, even at a close distance. If you only need to straighten your visible front teeth, consider Six Month Smiles®. This treatment uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to straighten teeth in a much shorter time than traditional braces.
No matter what treatments you include, your makeover can have dramatic results. We will typically perform the treatments in stages. When they are finished, you could enjoy a whiter, more even, and more youthful grin.
