A smile makeover is a type of cosmetic dentistry that combines multiple procedures to transform the appearance of your teeth and gums. Dr. Elgazar tailors smile makeover treatment specifically to your needs.
For example, if you’re missing multiple permanent teeth and your remaining teeth are yellow, he might recommend dental implants and teeth whitening. If you have all of your teeth, but they’re overcrowded and stained from years of tobacco use, he might recommend dental veneers or Invisalign® treatment.
No two smile makeovers are exactly alike. However, the goal is always the same: to improve the physical appearance and function of your teeth and smile.
Before developing a smile makeover treatment plan, Dr. Elgazar asks you questions about what you don’t like about your smile. Some things you may want to consider are:
You’ll also want to make considerations regarding your gums and lips. It may help to write everything down on a piece of paper. That way, you don’t forget anything at your initial consultation.
To determine what type of smile makeover treatment you’ll benefit from most, schedule an appointment at Tustin Dental Center. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, Dr. Elgazar develops a custom plan that aligns with your individual goals and needs. During your initial consultation, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask questions. It’s your mouth, and you play a crucially important role in the treatment process.
If you want your smile makeover to last for years, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss at least once a day, and visit the dentist every six months for a professional cleaning and exam. If possible, you should also avoid tobacco use, drinking dark beverages such as coffee and red wine, and steering clear of bad habits such as nail-biting. By following these simple suggestions, your smile makeover can last for years or even decades.
You deserve a smile you feel confident about. Request your smile makeover appointment by calling Tustin Dental Center today, or you can use the online booking tool at your convenience.
