At West Hills Smiles, we have garnered a great deal of recognition for offering first-rate general and cosmetic dentistry in a pleasant, comfortable environment. Our lead dentists Dr. Salekian (Dr. Mike) and Dr. Sturgeon are capable of handling your every dental need, be it a general check-up or a full smile makeover.
A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic or restorative dentistry procedures. At West Hills Smiles, our expert team might utilize treatments such as veneers, crowns, Onlays or teeth whitening to provide our patients with a dental makeover that will give them the uniform, dazzlingly bright smiles they’ve always dreamed of having.
While a dental makeover can go a long way toward providing our patients with new confidence and a brighter smile, some of our patients are not content with brighter, more uniform teeth, but instead wish to greet the world with an entirely new smile. In these particularly intensive cases, Dr. Mike or Dr. Sturgeon might perform an extreme dental makeover. These extreme makeovers could include everything from professional teeth whitening to laser gum reshaping for overly “gummy” smiles.
Though these full-scale makeovers can provide truly life-changing results, many of our clients are looking to restore the healthy smile of their youth. For these patients, options for restorative dentistry at West Hills Smiles include porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays, composite fillings, dental implants and dentures, among other treatments. With these restorative techniques, you’ll have a second chance to wow the world with your sparklingly white smile!
What is a smile makeover?
Your smile – it’s the one feature that immediately tells the world how you’re feeling. With age, your smile can lose vibrancy due to discoloration, tooth loss, excessive grinding, cavities and decay. Yet, no matter what your tooth trouble may be, a smile makeover from our dental experts can provide you with the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Often, lips begin to sag over time and lose their elasticity. Because their primary support comes from the teeth, widening and lengthening those teeth cause lips to appear more youthful. Based on a patient’s age, skin tone, and gender, teeth color and shape are selected to enhance the appearance from the nose down. A smile makeover can include any combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments, and the result always looks natural and fantastic.
By widening the smile and building out the teeth (through lengthening, added anatomy and translucency) and using veneers, we can create a more dynamic smile that fills out the lips and provides the patient with a fuller, more youthful appearance
The cosmetic smile makeover begins with a private consultation from the preferred doctor. Our team of specialists will then use smile imaging technology to show each patient how their new smile will appear through elements like face shape, lip fullness and mobility, and tooth, color, size and other factors. This is the essence of smile design.
What is the time commitment for a Smile Makeover?
Generally, a smile makeover takes 1 to 3 visits, 7 to 10 days apart, with a short 20-minute follow-up to apply finishing touches like contouring and polishing.
Does a Smile Makeover look natural?
When performed by our specialists, a Smile Makeover can be completely undetectable. Friends will simply think you’ve returned from a vacation, looking refreshed.
