Correct All Your Oral Health Concerns with a Smile Makeover

When your smile looks better, you will feel more confident. You will not have to absorb the negative reactions of people when they see your bad teeth. You will no longer be ashamed to smile or speak up in a social or professional setting because of:

  • Dark, discolored, or stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth with surface cracks
  • Crowded teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Spaces between your teeth
  • A gummy smile
  • Short teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • A bad bite
  • Missing teeth

Smile Makeovers Aren’t Only About Looks

Not only is the aesthetic element of your smile problematic, but if you have functional or alignment issues, you are more likely to experience the following:

  • Gum disease
  • Infection
  • Decay
  • Pain
  • Tooth loss
  • Bone deterioration
  • Inflammation
  • Misalignment and TMJ
  • Chewing problems

These concerns and more can be addressed and corrected at our Philadelphia dental office. Remember, too, that many of the oral health problems you’re dealing with can have long-term health complications. Tooth and gum problems can lead to an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes, as well as malnutrition. If you can’t eat the chewy and crunchy foods you need to keep you healthy, your diet and body will suffer.

Customized Smile Makeovers in Philadelphia

Smile makeovers may consist of one procedure or several procedures. It may be a combination of cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. There is no one way to go about a smile makeover, and your new smile will be customized specifically for your oral health needs.

The goal for every smile makeover is to restore your overall dental health and achieve a fully functional, beautiful smile that looks natural. Drs. Cirka, Jeon, and Ridge can design your smile to look the way you have always wanted it to look through modern restorative and cosmetic dentistry techniques such as:

  • Porcelain veneers: Many of the mega-watt smiles of celebrities come courtesy of porcelain veneers. You can achieve the same enviable white and flawless smile with your own set of customized veneers that are resistant to stains.
  • All-porcelain tooth crowns: When your tooth is disfigured, oddly shaped, or too damaged to repair with a filling or onlay, all-porcelain tooth crowns cap the tooth to protect it and make it look natural and healthy.
  • Invisalign: It takes a little time, but an Invisalign smile makeover aligns your jaws and teeth so your smile is strong, properly positioned, and ready for any aesthetic upgrades you want, like teeth whitening.
  • Teeth whitening: One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, teeth whitening works on any kind of healthy smile, boosting your smile wattage tenfold and making even slightly flawed teeth look just right.
  • Dental implants: Missing teeth not only jeopardize the positioning of neighboring teeth, but their absence can change the shape of your face over time. Dental implants replace the tooth root and the actual tooth with an implant and prosthetic tooth.
  • Lumineers: A less-invasive version of veneers, Lumineers are sometimes referred to as no-prep veneers. They require very little work to get your teeth ready to be bonded to the incredibly thin pieces of transformative porcelain.
  • Dental bridges: Gaps in your smile from missing teeth can be corrected with a permanent and secure dental bridge anchored on either side by porcelain crowns.

Don’t settle for a smile that is less than perfect. Allow our team at Philadelphia Dentistry to create the straight, full, flawless, white smile you have always wanted. Your family, friends, acquaintances, and colleagues will be amazed by your transformation when you get a smile makeover.

Not only will your appearance be enhanced, but your confidence will be supercharged to give you the strength to go about your days feeling good about yourself, doing good things for yourself, and doing good for others.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Procedures Are Included in a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is usually a mix of multiple cosmetic procedures. However, the procedures performed vary from patient to patient. 

The most common procedure performed for a smile makeover includes the following:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns
  • Orthodontic treatments, such as braces and Invisalign
  • Dental implants 
  • Gum contouring
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Enamel shaping
  • Dental inlays and onlays

In some cases of a smile makeover, patients can get a full mouth reconstruction. This specialized treatment plan is designed to treat multiple dental issues that affect the entire mouth. This is an extensive process, so it is important to consult with one of our qualified dentists. 

Are Smile Makeovers Covered by Dental Insurance?

In most cases, dental insurance does not usually cover the procedures involved in a smile makeover. This is because they are considered cosmetic procedures. However, not every insurance policy is the same, as some may offer coverage. If the procedure is used to treat an issue, such as tooth decay or gum disease, then you may be covered.

It is best to contact your insurance provider to see what your policy covers before scheduling your appointment. 

Who Are Good Candidates for a Smile Makeover?

Before patients can have a Philadelphia dental smile makeover, they must first be considered an eligible candidate for their desired procedures. 

You are a good candidate for a smile makeover if you meet the following criteria:

  • You have multiple dental issues - Ideal candidates for a smile makeover are those who have multiple dental issues they want to correct. These issues include cracked teeth, stained teeth, misaligned teeth, disproportionate tooth size, and missing teeth.
  • You have good oral health - Before getting a smile makeover, it is important for patients to have good oral health. Having an issue, such as gum disease, tooth decay, or an infection, needs to be addressed before you can undergo a cosmetic dental procedure.
  • You are a non-smoker or are willing to quit - Smoking is notorious for increasing the risk of complications. Not only can it increase the risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease, it can impair your healing and cause your gums to recede. 
  • You are willing to commit to the post-operative care instructions - Since smile makeovers generally have surgical procedures, your dentist will provide you with post-operative care instructions to help you have a smooth recovery and maintain results. 

You will know if you are a suitable candidate for a smile makeover during your consultation at our Center City dental office. If you are not considered a good candidate, your dentist will advise you to treat any current dental issues before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. 

How Long Do the Results From a Smile Makeover Last?

The results of a smile makeover depend on several factors, such as the types of procedures performed, the patient’s lifestyle, their oral hygiene, and the natural aging process. With proper care and maintenance, the results of a smile makeover can last for years.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Typically Take From Start to Finish?

The duration of a smile makeover varies. The timeline is based on the procedures involved and the individual patient's needs. On average, the process can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. 

Initial consultations and diagnostic evaluations are followed by the actual treatments. These may include veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, and orthodontics. You’ll receive a personalized timeline during your consultation.

Can a Smile Makeover Fix a Gummy Smile?

Yes, a smile makeover can address a gummy smile. This condition, where excessive gum tissue is visible when you smile, can be corrected through various techniques. 

Gum contouring or crown lengthening are common procedures used to reshape the gum line and reveal more of your teeth. They create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.

What Is the Recovery Time After a Smile Makeover Procedure?

Recovery time depends on the specific procedures performed during your smile makeover. 

Simple treatments like teeth whitening have virtually no downtime. Meanwhile, more extensive procedures like gum contouring or dental implants may require a few days to a week for recovery. 

How Do I Care for My Teeth After a Smile Makeover?

Proper care after a smile makeover is essential. Be sure to follow these tips:

  • Brush twice per day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss at least once per day to get rid of plaque and food particles between teeth.
  • Avoid foods and drinks that may stain your teeth (coffee, tea, red wine, etc.).
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Use prescribed dental products and follow specific aftercare instructions provided by your dentist.

Are There Any Financing Options Available for Smile Makeovers?

Philadelphia Dentistry offers affordable financing options through Sunbit Financing and Care Credit. Interest rates are as low as 3.9% APR. Payments can also be as low as $125 per month for a $5000 treatment fee, making it easier to manage your dental expenses. 

Our financing plans cater to a wide range of credit histories, with no fees to apply and no prepayment penalties. This flexibility ensures that financial concerns don't get in the way of achieving your perfect smile.

Can a Smile Makeover Address Teeth Grinding or Clenching Issues?

Teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching can cause significant dental problems. This includes worn-down teeth and jaw pain. A smile makeover can include treatments to address these issues, such as custom-made night guards to protect your teeth. 

Additionally, restorative procedures like crowns and veneers can repair damage caused by grinding. They will ensure your smile is not only beautiful but also healthy and functional.
