What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a complete process that addresses structural and cosmetic dental issues to improve your facial appearance and your smile. Whether you were born with a perfect smile or cursed with crooked teeth, your smile changes over time. Your teeth suffer some level of physical damage due to years of use, misuse, injury, or decay, which affects the quality of your smile. Read more about why you should consider a smile makeover

Who Needs a Smile Makeover?

EEveryone deserves a dazzling smile. If your teeth have become dull with age or you have several dental issues keeping you from freely smiling with confidence, you can take action. Preventive care, like regular checkups and professional cleaning can help prevent many issues affecting your smile. Issues that may require more intensive procedures to achieve a complete smile makeover may include:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Disproportionately sized teeth
  • Eroded, misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • A gummy smile
  • An uneven gumline
  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Facial injuries that affect your teeth

No matter the damage to your face or teeth, your dentist can restore and brighten your smile. Dr. Shalman’s boutique Manhattan dental practice uses cutting-edge technology to ensure your comfort during his dental evaluation and treatment. As a family and cosmetic dentist, he understands that the best smiles are also the healthiest.

What Are the Procedures Used for a Smile Makeover?

Every smile makeover treatment is unique because your dental issues aren’t the same as those of others. Dr. Shalman evaluates the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw before recommending the best procedures to restore your smile. Common dental makeover procedures include:

Deciding which dental procedures to recommend for your smile makeover depends on various factors. Your experienced smile makeover dentist bases his suggestions on the following ones:

  • The type of dental problem you’re experiencing
  • Your facial shape
  • The color of your teeth
  • Your teeth shape and length
  • The condition of your gum and jaw bone

Dr. Shalman will tailor the smile makeover to your specific needs and expectations, ensuring that you leave our office completely satisfied.

What Are the Benefits of a Smile Makeover?

Smiling is one of the most powerful forms of visual communication. When your smile does not accurately convey your personality, you may have difficulty interacting with others. You can’t effectively express your true feelings if you hide your flawed smile or stop smiling out of embarrassment. A smile makeover can accomplish more than just enhanced physical appearance; it can also:

  • Boost your self-esteem
  • Increase your self-confidence when in public
  • Make you seem more approachable
  • Help you attract positive attention
  • Produce a positive first impression
  • Enhance your mood
  • Reduce stress
  • Take years off your appearance

In addition to ensuring continued dental health, Dr. Shalman strives to create and maintain harmony and balance with the dental treatments he selects. Depending on the desired results, your treatment plan may include one or more restorative or cosmetic procedures.

What Are the Steps of Your Smile Makeover Process?

If you want to improve the appearance of your smile and address several dental issues in Lower Manhattan, you may be wondering what to expect from a smile makeover at Dr. Shalman’s boutique dentistry office in NYC.

Your smile makeover may require several visits with multiple steps involved, including:

  • Consultation and preparation. Your cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth and gums, review your dental and medical history, and discuss your treatment goals. Dr. Shalman will treat any signs of active dental disease first. Strong and healthy teeth and gums are necessary to provide a good foundation for your new smile and ensure long-lasting results.
  • Designing your treatment plan. We use smile design technology to plan treatment. The specialist will take digital dental x-rays and photos. He will then scan your mouth to create 3-D models. Using sophisticated computer software, your cosmetic dentist will manipulate this information showing how various treatments will benefit your smile and producing images that you can preview before your treatment begins.
  • Discussing your treatment in detail. Once you have a basic smile design in place, your cosmetic dentist will devise a suitable treatment plan. He will explain its approximate price, advantages, and length of time required to complete it.
  • Creating your beautiful smile. After agreeing on the best course of action, the specialist will start to restore your smile. Depending on your desired outcome, you will receive dental implants, veneers, crowns, or other options. When your treatment is complete, you will have a new smile that looks dazzling, healthy, and natural.

With a custom smile makeover from Dr. Shalman in Downtown NYC, you can completely restore your smile, bite, and self-confidence. Reach out to us and get the comprehensive dental care you deserve.

What Are the Smile Makeover Side Effects?

Although there are few risks associated with dental smile makeover treatment, some patients may experience gum sensitivity and mild discomfort. You can manage these unpleasant side effects with over-the-counter pain relievers and should be able to return to work or your normal routine one day after the procedure.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost in NYC?

Your New York City dentist considers all your options and smile makeover costs associated with each phase of the process. Procedures are typically spaced out over time to reduce stress on your mouth and spread out your financial responsibility. Total cost depends on several factors, including:

  • The extent of the damage to your teeth
  • The number of procedures in your smile makeover plan
  • The technology required, as more advanced procedures, such as dental implants, cost more
  • The need for anesthesia, since a smile makeover procedure may involve some general dentistry treatment that requires sedation, increasing the total cost of your treatment
  • Your desired goals

Our experienced treatment coordinators will walk you through the process and offer personalized payment options so that you can receive the highest quality dental care at a perfectly reasonable price.

Does dental insurance cover a smile makeover?

Dental insurance will not cover cosmetic dentistry that provides no functional benefits. Therefore procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are not covered. In some cases, your insurance may cover the cost of restorative procedures like dental implants if they are necessary to improve your oral health.

Even if dental insurance doesn’t cover your smile makeover, we’re devoted to decreasing your financial burden and making dental care more affordable by offering flexible and convenient payment plans for qualified patients.

A great smile is a valuable feature. For instance, Mona Lisa’s smile makes Leonardo da Vinci’s painting one of the most famous works of art in history. Whatever issues hamper your smile, Dr. Alex Shalman may have a permanent solution. His boutique cosmetic dentistry practice in Lower Manhattan has built a reputation for its transformative dental makeovers. Invest in yourself by contact the dentist today.
