If you're embarrassed to smile we can make it to where you would love to smile. We can make to where you want to show off your teeth to everyone who looks. That's a big difference to go from hiding your smile, when you’re talking when you're eating, to wanting to actually showing people your teeth. You know, that's a life changing event and we've had a lot of patients actually break down in tears when we were done with their treatment. We see it all the time because as you know, the first thing most people notice when they talk to you is your smile. As far as options go we have porcelain veneers that we can put over the teeth to change the size, shape and color. We can use orthodontics to move the teeth and then bleach them after. Sometimes just some simple re-contouring of the teeth without doing anything but changing the edges of the teeth or maybe just the slight shape of the teeth can make a big difference. Each patient is different and we always have different options so if someone doesn't like their smile the first thing we have to do is figure out what they don't like about it and then we can change that.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is what we call the process of fixing all the cosmetic dentistry issues you have with your smile. This process begins with you and Dr. Calvin Bessonet identifying your issues. Once we know what the problems are, we will work out how to fix them together.
Wax-ups – A wax-up is the one of the first steps in the smile makeover process. Dr. Calvin Bessonet will make a wax impression of your mouth. From there, he will begin to prepare a mold of what your mouth is going to look like after the appropriate treatment or treatments are completed.
Some dentists refer to the wax-up as a working model of your mouth. Like an architect has a model of the building that he or she is designing, so the dentist has a model of what your mouth will look like once the process is complete.
The main reason for this step is that some procedures are just too complex to be able to envision in your head. Having a physical model helps you conceptualize the procedure, and helps identify what steps we need to take to meet your needs.
Computer-Generated Smile Preview – In addition to the wax-up, Dr. Calvin Bessonet will also produce a smile preview for you. Before your makeover, he will generate a digital image of what your mouth will look like following successful treatment for your issues. This is possible only through the latest in computer technology available at Ascension Premier Dental.
Possible Treatment Options
Depending on the issues you have, your treatment may be as minor as a simple teeth whitening combined with light tooth bonding. It may also be as extensive as a full set of veneers. Every person is given their own, personalized dental treatment plan to address their individual dental needs. Some common dental treatments include:
Dental Veneers – Dental veneers are thin pieces of material bonded to the front of teeth to improve the dental cosmetic appearance.
Teeth Whitening – Dr. Calvin Bessonet will apply a teeth whitening treatment to get rid of stains and other discolorations.
Short Term Orthodontics – This option allows you to continue with your everyday life while straightening your teeth at the same time. With options that include Invisalign and Six Month Braces, no one will even be able to tell that you are straightening your teeth.
A smile makeover combines the use of other cosmetic dentistry services, too. You can check out all that we offer on our cosmetic dentistry page.
