We all know that a beautiful smile builds confidence and improves self-image. Your smile is one of the first attributes people notice when they first meet you. We also believe the health of your mouth is just as important. For these reasons, our full smile makeover is one of the most life-changing cosmetic dental procedures we perform.
Simply put, a smile makeover refers to a combination of dental procedures that work to change the entire appearance of your smile. A smile makeover enhances the beauty and appearance of your smile, while correcting almost any dental problem. Our patients have experienced that making their mouth healthy and their smile the best it can be has improved their quality of life significantly.
A full smile makeover by Dr. Bartolome and Dr. Swearingen may be the best solution for you if you have one or any combination of the following dental problems:
• Crooked teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Broken teeth
• Missing teeth
• Gaps between teeth
• Stained teeth
• Discolored teeth
• Gummy smiles
The Smile Makeover Process
Smile makeovers are usually created with the use of porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and/or porcelain onlays. These all offer a natural look and feel and can dramatically change the length, width, color and shape of the tooth. Veneers, crowns, and onlays restore teeth to their natural beauty and create an enduring whiter, brighter smile.
Once Dr. Bartolome and Dr. Swearingen help you determine the “style” of your desired smile, they will take an impression of your existing teeth and send that impression to a lab with precise instructions of what your smile should look like. The lab creates a wax model of how the smile will look. You will review the wax model with our doctors and either make changes or give the approval to proceed.
After the wax up is approved, our doctors will prepare your teeth, take a new impression, and fit you with temporary replacements. In as little as three to four weeks, the porcelain restorations will be ready and the porcelain is bonded to your teeth.
You will leave with new, bright, healthy teeth, renewed confidence, and the smile you have always dreamed of having.
