A smile truly reflects on the person. Professionals can find that the effects are seen in their work and their interactions with clients and customers.
How do I get a Smile Makeover?
Typically, the first step in a smile makeover is gathering information. We start by sitting down with you to discuss your concerns, desires and goals, barriers to treatment, and life circumstances that may affect treatment. We then gather clinical data via a thorough examination, necessary radiographs (x-rays), photographs, and models of your teeth. With this information we can work together with our lab technicians to develop the ideal treatment plan to meet your goals.
There are a range of treatments that may be involved in a smile makeover. It may be as simple as minor reshaping of the teeth and some whitening, or it may be more complex and involve restorations such as porcelain veneers or crowns, orthodontics or gum surgery. Through our detailed diagnostic process we can determine what the best plan is for you. Once the plan is agreed upon, we can proceed with treatment.
The best investment you can make is in yourself. We have a variety of payment options to help you fit your new smile into your budget. Take the first step to a new smile and call to schedule that first conversation.
