What is a smile makeover?

Not that long ago, beautiful smile transformations were something only Hollywood movie stars could afford. But thanks to all of the advances in modern dental technologies, materials, and treatment methods, a celebrity teeth makeover is within reach! A smile makeover is a highly customized set of treatments that are done to enhance the appearance of your smile, and in many cases, improve its health and function at the same time.

To start your mouth makeover process, Dr. Cho begins by conducting an extensive examination of your teeth and gums, in addition to having an in-depth conversation with you about your smile – what you want to change, what you want to keep, and your treatment preferences. Then, using a physical replica of your teeth and photographs of your face and smile, Dr. Cho plans out your new smile so it has the ideal proportions, taking into account the curve of your lips, your facial features, the shape of your face, and more. At this point, Dr. Cho creates your new smile out of a wax material to give you a real-life preview of your end results so you can work together to refine it before it is crafted out of the highest quality dental materials, such as natural-looking and durable ceramics. Depending on what your individual needs and desired results, your smile makeover may consist of one or more of the following treatments:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Same-day CEREC crowns
  • Gummy smile treatment
  • Pinhole® surgical technique to treat receding gums
  • Dental implants or other tooth replacement options
  • Teeth whitening

Smile makeover is it is changes that we make in a patient's mouth through veneers and crowns. It can be patients who have crooked teeth crowded teeth discolored teeth cracked teeth anything like that and you're putting a covering on it and changing the appearance of your smile by putting porcelain on top of that through veneers or crowns. Porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that's put over the teeth, so a little bit of preparation is done on the teeth to make room for the porcelain. If a tooth already has an existing crown for a large cavity or old fillings, those who turn into crowns. So, it's a combination of veneers and crowns to correct the patient's smile. I see a lot of small design cases out there where they don't look like natural teeth. To me for a smile to look natural, it is critical and there are so many different types of porcelain that's out there and to know the differences and to know what should be used for each situation it is important. Lots of translucency is what I like that the biting edges to give the natural appearance of teeth while straightening it and making it look nice to fit the patient's face and it’s what a smile design would be.
