What Is a Smile Makeover?
Throughout your lifetime, you may have had oral damage, tooth loss, and other issues that have made you feel less than confident about your smile. A smile makeover at Plymouth Dental Group is a custom treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that can dramatically enhance the appearance and (often) function of your teeth. Personalized for each patient, a smile makeover may include services like professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or composite bonding. Dental implants or bridges may also be incorporated to replace missing teeth for a healthy, attractive result. If you have concerns about your grin and are near the Plymouth or Kingston, PA areas, we invite you to reserve a consultation with gifted general dentist Dr. E. Morgan Scheiber to learn how a smile makeover can renew your confidence and appearance.
Are You a Smile Makeover Candidate?
A smile makeover may be ideal if you wish to improve the appearance of your teeth or if you need to treat several restorative or cosmetic concerns. With high-level skill and technique, Dr. Scheiber customizes smile makeover treatments to target a range of aesthetic flaws, including:
- Yellow or stained teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Gaps between teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Short, uneven, or misshapen teeth
- Missing or severely damaged teeth
- Old metal or discolored fillings
Before you have any cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Scheiber will evaluate your overall oral health and talk with you about your goals and treatment needs. Any oral health issues such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal (gum) disease may need to be addressed before beginning your smile makeover.
What Is the Treatment Process?
During the treatment planning phase of your smile makeover, Dr. Scheiber will listen to your goals and carefully design each restoration or cosmetic dentistry procedure to enhance the size, shape, and color of your teeth. He will also consider factors like the shape of your face and jaw, lips, and smile line to deliver optimal results. Each smile makeover is unique, so Dr. Scheiber will go over exactly what to expect during your treatment plan, such as how many appointments you might require to achieve your desired outcome. Local anesthesia may be needed for a few of the treatments; however, other sedation choices may be included if you need help relaxing due to dental fears or anxieties. Dr. Scheiber and our team will be available throughout the entire process to answer any questions and help you feel comfortable.
Maintaining Your Results
To maintain the look and health of your teeth following your smile makeover, it is crucial to follow an oral hygiene regimen that includes daily flossing and brushing. Attending regular dental exams and cleanings at Plymouth Dental Group can help preserve the appearance of your new smile and allow Dr. Scheiber to monitor your oral health. With proper maintenance, the results of your smile makeover may be long-lasting. Touch-up procedures, such as teeth whitening, may help to refresh your results and allow you to enjoy your smile transformation for many years to come.
Does Insurance Cover Smile Makeovers?
In your consultation, Dr. Scheiber will help create a smile makeover plan that fits both your goals and budget. Our business team will estimate the cost of your treatment program and explain the payment methods accepted at Plymouth Dental Group, including low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic dentistry treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance but some restorative procedures might be partially insured. We will talk to your insurance provider to review your specific coverage and before calculating any out-of-pocket costs.
