|In light of the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, our practice, City Smiles DC, will follow the American Dental Association (ADA) and Local DC Government guidelines.
Effective 5 PM, March 17, 2020, through April 30, 2020, our office will be closed to elective procedures (hygiene appointments, fillings, etc.). We will reopen at 8 am on May 4, 2020.
Smile makeovers are a great and versatile solution that can address your particular dental problems and correct them. We will examine your situation and assess where improvement needs to be made or work according to your goals.
We’ll have to perform an in-depth oral evaluation, but once that’s done, we’ll have created a custom treatment plan just for you, addressing your particular needs and the available recommended procedures. This can be done through computer imagery, impressions, and detailed examinations.
Your smile makeover treatment plan might include anything from fillings, veneers, crowns, aesthetic gum lift, bridges, cosmetic bonding, teeth whitening, and a variety of orthodontic treatments.
What Problems Can Be Corrected with a Smile Makeover?
When looking into getting a smile makeover, you might want to consider the problems you might need to correct to achieve your desired goal. A smile makeover can improve teeth color, alignment, spacing, replace missing teeth and even give a better appearance to your lips, smile and cheeks.
Aesthetically, we’ll look into correcting or changing your tooth length, which can help a youthful appearance. For this, we might consider gum reshaping or simply veneers, depending on your situation. We can also use similar procedures to correct your tooth proportions, making sure all your teeth are in proportion to each other, providing you with a more pleasant smile.
We can even improve your smile line to make sure that the edges of your upper teeth perfectly match the curve or your lower lip any time you smile. Additionally, we could characterize your veneers or crowns to help give your smile a more feminine or masculine appearance.
Can A Smile Makeover Affect Your Oral Health?
Even though the main goal of a smile makeover is to improve your smile’s appearance, most of the time the procedure also helps improve your oral health. For example, using crowns to make your smile look more appealing will also help protect any weak teeth from future damage.
On top of this, through any orthodontic procedures, your teeth will be better aligned, giving you a better and proper bite. This will not only make you feel more comfortable but might even improve your sleep, breathing, and other daily functions.
It’s important to note that we will notify you of any changes you need to make and special precautions to be taken when caring for your new smile. So if you happen to grind your teeth at night, we’ll make sure to fit you with a night guard to prevent overnight damage to your teeth and any restorations.
