Our smile is the first thing we see in the mirror every morning. But today we see it all day long in “selfies”, social media posts, and video chatting with loved ones. Confidence in our smiles—or lack of—affects how we interact with people, our mood, and how we feel about ourselves. A smile makeover is a treatment process designed to enhance the appearance of the smile while creating a dental foundation free from disease and malfunction, a transformation that significantly improves beauty, function, and your confidence. Candidates for a smile makeover are those whose teeth are cosmetically unattractive (chips, fractures, gaps, discoloration) and may not function correctly due to crookedness, malocclusion, damage, disease, or trauma.
Defining the most beautiful smiles for each of our patients involves reestablishing or improving key elements of both the functional and aesthetic. It is no small feat to achieve this outcome. A complete smile makeover at Allure Dental is aesthetically-driven for the face, but foundationally structured in proper occlusion of the teeth. This dual-purpose treatment is how we achieve the most vibrant and flawlessly beautiful smiles with the optimal neuromuscular and dental function.
A smile makeover is rarely comprised of a single procedure, but is a comprehensive process personalized to each patient’s unique oral condition and smile goals. Our process begins with conversations regarding your expectations and the result we know that we can achieve for our patients. We will start by taking intra and extraoral photographs and a 3D scan. This information is used to create a wax-up made in a state-of-the-art laboratory. This wax-up is a critical step in the smile makeover process as it allows you to see your projected smile! Once you approve your smile, we will move forward with the cosmetic makeover portion of your treatment process. The day that we start transformation, you will leave with beautiful transitional temporaries and in three weeks you will receive your permanent smile!
