How Does a Smile Makeover Work?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that typically involves numerous dental procedures intended to fully restore the health, appearance, and function of a person’s smile. The combined treatments will help replace any lost dental structure as well as improve the overall aesthetics of the teeth.
Each and every smile makeover is custom designed to meet a patient’s unique needs. This is why the first step is always a thorough consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Page will examine your teeth, jaw, bite alignment, and numerous other factors to gain a global understanding of your dental health. From there, Dr. Page will discuss what you would like to accomplish with your makeover.
Because each makeover is different, the time it may take to complete can vary. Sometimes, a smile makeover requires several visits scheduled over the course of a few weeks or months.
Your treatment plan may include a number of different procedures, such as:
- A variety of restorative services
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic bonding
- Porcelain veneers or Lumineers
- Cosmetic gum recontouring

How Many Treatments Can You Include in a Smile Makeover?

Some patients get their dream smile with a combination of teeth whitening and veneers, while others require a more complex treatment plan that might involve Invisalign, restorative treatments, veneers, and more.
During your consultation, we can discuss how many treatments might be necessary to help your smile reach its full potential.
How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?
A smile makeover may take anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months or longer. It all depends on which treatments you undergo. For example, teeth whitening can be completed in a single appointment, whereas veneers and metal-free restorations require at least two appointments. Invisalign may take a year or longer.
Whenever possible, we strive to complete multiple treatments simultaneously in order to make the best use of our patients’ time.
Is a Smile Makeover Safe?
Smile makeover treatment is quite safe. As long as your procedures are performed by a well-trained and experienced team, the risk of anything going wrong is quite low. No cosmetic treatments carry large risks for oral health, and we carefully screen patients to make sure that they are good candidates for any procedure that they are interested in. If you have any contraindications for a specific treatment, we will adapt your plan so we can achieve the best possible results without endangering your well-being.
Does a Smile Makeover Hurt?
Patient comfort is important to us, so, depending on which procedure you are undergoing, we may use local anesthesia and/or sedation to help you have an enjoyable experience. Some treatments cause temporary sensitivity or soreness after they are complete. For example, veneers and teeth whitening may give you reason to avoid hot, cold, and spicy foods for a while. After your recovery period, though, your teeth should return to feeling normal.
If you ever experience severe pain during or after a dental treatment, let our team know. We will strive to identify the cause of the problem and address it as quickly as possible.
