Smile Makeovers: Step by Step

So, you’ve finally decided to ask your dentist about getting a smile makeover. What’s involved? How many appointments do you need? How much is it going to cost? Here’s everything you need to know about changing your smile for the better:

Your Exam

During the consultation and exam, your dentist will assess the health and physical needs of your teeth. You’ll want to go over what aspects of your smile you like and which ones you would like to change. Be specific! 

The Treatment Plan

Your dentist will recommend different treatment options to you, depending on what your primary concerns are. In most cases this will be 2 or 3 different options or a combination of treatments. Once you’ve settled on the plan you think is best, you’ll discuss the plan with the treatment coordinator. The treatment coordinator will review all of the fees with you as well as estimated insurance coverage. 

Your Appointments

During the treatment plan consultation, you will be given a schedule made by the dentist, which outlines the step-by-step process of your smile makeover. You may only need one appointment next week, or 4 appointments over the next few months. It depends on what treatment you’ve decided on!

The End Results

Regardless of what type of treatment you went with, having a more beautiful smile is something that is absolutely priceless. By boosting your self-confidence, improving the way you look and addressing your oral health, you’re going to make more impressions than ever before.

What are you waiting for? There’s no need to put it off any longer. Ask your dentist what smile makeover options you have. You’ve already waited long enough!
