Our Smile Makeover Process

When you come to our Boston-area dental office, the first thing we’ll do is help you determine exactly what you want and need to give you the smile you’ve always desired. First, we’ll give you a full dental examination to locate and identify any potential problem areas with your teeth, gums, and bite. This will give us a snapshot of your current dental health and the condition of your smile.

We will also talk with you in depth about what kind of smile you want. Through photos, computer imaging and discussing your desires, we’ll review your options with you to build your dream smile.

Once we’ve established the condition of your smile and determined what your wants and needs are, we’ll figure out the most effective and efficient way to accomplish your goals, resulting in a plan of action to achieve a predictable and satisfying smile makeover.

The Smile Design

To aid in the process of designing your new smile, we will collect diagnostic information. This will include impressions of your teeth to make plaster models; intraoral and portrait photographs; selection of color, texture, translucency, shape, and style; and measurements of your teeth for the proper size and proportion of the porcelain restorations. Also, we will evaluate your gum tissue and plan for any necessary laser recontouring to obtain a more aesthetically ideal and pleasing result. All of this information is sent to the dental laboratory so that your new smile can be sculpted in wax to act as a blueprint for your temporary and permanent restorations.

Smile Makeover FAQs

Is a smile makeover safe?

Cosmetic dental procedures of all kinds are unlikely to cause any harm to your overall smile. The same can be said for smile makeovers. No matter the type of plan that is crafted for you, the materials used are non-toxic, which means they are better for your mouth and body as opposed to traditional metal. Although some services require the removal of tooth enamel, it is minimal, and the replacement tooth that fits snugly over the thinned portion offers greater protection (i.e., veneers).

It's important to remember, though, that not everyone is a good candidate for a smile makeover or cosmetic dentistry, in general. If pre-existing oral health conditions like decay or gum disease exist, these must be addressed first. Pursuing cosmetic care of any kind before improving the health of your smile will only lead to worsening complications in the future.

Do smile makeovers have an age limit?

Unless you have a very young child, smile makeovers are considered viable solutions for patients of any age. It is not necessarily a person’s age that qualifies or disqualifies them for treatment but instead their oral health. Making sure you are a good candidate for care requires determining the status of your teeth, gums and even your bite. If we find that there are any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, additional preliminary treatment will need to be provided.

Are smile makeovers expensive?

It is impossible to tell how much a smile makeover will cost without an extensive consultation. Each patient is different, so what you might need will likely be different than what someone else might require. It is no secret, though, that this type of treatment is more expensive than other cosmetic solutions, especially since multiple services are included in a single plan. One important thing to keep in mind is that the cost will be determined by several factors, including the severity of the problem(s), where the affected teeth are located, your geographic area and how much experience your dentist has in performing a smile makeover.

Since dental insurance is unlikely to cover most cosmetic services, you can count on Pinnacle Dental to provide alternative ways to help patients like yourself save. With CareCredit, you can enroll in a plan that aligns with your budget and makes it possible to pay off your smile makeover over time.

Can you undergo multiple procedures during one appointment?

Yes, it is possible to undergo multiple dental procedures during one appointment. This is part of what makes smile makeovers a more convenient form of dentistry. One way this option is possible is for a cosmetic dentist to provide both teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding in the same visit. However, there are instances where multiple appointments will be required, especially if your teeth need to be altered in preparation for certain forms of treatment, such as veneers or dental crowns.
