A smile makeover is one of the most exciting treatments that dentists perform. It’s thrilling to see a smile transformed over time, and the look on the patient’s face when the smile makeover is complete is priceless. Dr. Adam Hahn is a highly trained, extensively educated cosmetic dentist who has performed hundreds of smile makeovers throughout his career. Any number of cosmetic dentistry procedures may be involved in your smile makeover. We offer numerous treatments to repair flawed teeth and enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
No two smile makeovers are the same. Every patient has different issues, which will require some combination of procedures that will be custom-planned for you. We have done smile makeovers in two or three visits, while other transformations may require several weeks or months. The wonderful thing about enhancing your oral health and the beauty of your smile is that you’ll surely feel better about yourself, and your quality of life will likely improve.
No smile makeovers are alike because you may want a tooth whitening treatment in our office or need some veneers or dental bonding to perfect your smile. Some of our patients require more involved dental treatments to achieve the smile of their dreams. Patients may require dental extractions, dental implants, and dental bridges in those more challenging smile makeovers.
Smile Makeover Process
At your initial appointment, we will gather your medical history and determine your goals—what look are you trying to achieve? Do you want whiter teeth? Straighter teeth? Whiter and straighter teeth? A less gummy smile? Longer teeth? Shorter teeth? More teeth?
Whatever the case may be, we will get x-rays using some of the most innovative dental technology on the market today, and we will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth, gums, and other structures involved with your oral health. We will also conduct an oral cancer screening before beginning any smile makeover.
Dr. Hahn will share his findings and discuss some treatment plan ideas. Our dental team will discuss insurance coverage and explain our various financing options. You will then take your time and decide if you want to proceed with your smile makeover. If any dental problems that Dr. Hahn feels cannot wait too long, he will explain them to you.
Smile Makeover Procedures
As we said earlier, there are several cosmetic dentistry procedures performed in making over smiles. Here are just some of the most common treatments we do to transform your smile from lackluster to stunning:
We offer sedation dentistry for those with dental anxiety or dental phobia or those who are just a little nervous when it comes to dental work. We can discuss our sedation dentistry options at your visits.
Prior to Your Smile Makeover…
You may need teeth extracted to achieve your goals or some teeth filled due to cavities and other signs of tooth decay. Before beginning any smile makeover, we must ensure you’re in good oral health.
We also have to ensure you don’t have any bite problems like a misaligned bite (malocclusion) or worn teeth due to teeth clenching and grinding. If you suffer from TMJ or have TMJ symptoms, we will have to do a thorough evaluation to ensure your bite is aligned correctly. We can begin your smile makeover once more significant issues are well controlled.
