In this message from Drake Family Dentistry we’re going to talk about smile makeovers. Some people wonder if the term is synonymous with cosmetic dentistry.
Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a dazzling smile.
Generally, however, a complete cosmetic dental smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile metamorphosis. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.
For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
