Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Anaheim Hills cosmetic smile makeover

In this post from Michelsen Dental in Orange CA, we’ll take a look at smile transformations. Some Orange patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Is 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 beautiful smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. 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.
