What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that combines one or more procedures to improve the shape, color, and alignment of teeth, and the appearance of your gums. Individualized treatment planning is the key to a smile makeover's success. Your available time, budget, and aesthetic goals are all considerations that Dr. Palmieri will discuss with you as you develop your personalized smile makeover.
Candidacy & Treatment Options
Any patient in good oral and overall health can be a candidate for a smile makeover. Before performing cosmetic enhancements, any existing oral health problems, such as gum disease, first need to be addressed. A smile makeover may combine any of the following procedures:
Cosmetic bonding and recontouring of teeth
Gum contouring or reshaping
Invisalign® or other orthodontic therapy
Additionally, you may choose to replace worn, discolored dental work with tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns.
Planning Your Smile Makeover
During your initial consultation, Dr. Palmieri will review your records and discuss your vision for the perfect smile. He may show you photographs of cosmetic cases he has performed, and he encourages you to bring in your own pictures as well. Take time before your consultation to look at your smile and determine what you like and dislike about it. Patients can do research on the Internet and in magazines for images of smiles they admire. By discussing your concerns and goals with Dr. Palmieri, he can prepare a smile makeover that adequately addresses all of your preferences. If you have any concerns, such as dental anxiety, financial constraints, or scheduling requirements, let Dr. Palmieri know during your consultation. He will consider these factors in planning your case.
Our office is proud to be the largest provider of CareCredit® in south central Pennsylvania, so we are happy to work with your budget. Patients should also keep in mind that although a smile makeover is a single treatment plan, it will most likely require multiple office visits. After you and Dr. Palmieri have developed an individualized plan, he can help you become familiar with what to expect regarding treatment time, number of visits, and your overall timeline.
