Many people are happy with their smile. And many people would love to have a smile that matches their dreams. A smile makeover is a plan that may consist of cosmetic dental treatments, but it may be much more.
Dental implants, orthodontic care, gum tissue care, can also be part of a smile makeover. The start is always a thorough diagnosis and discussion of what someone desires and what are possible dental treatments needed to meet someone’s smile makeover goals.
A well planned smile has a better chance to have the longevity someone wants. Let's face it though, things wear out. Cars wear out, jeans wear out, and even smiles may wear out. Planning for the future is part of creating a smile makeover goal.
That planning and keeping away from flying pucks at a hockey game can make smiles last longer.
Smile makeovers vary with the scope of dental treatments needed. Smile makeovers really depend on how a person wants their smile changed. It may include dental whitening, cosmetic dental treatments, dental orthodontics or a combination of many treatments.
Make an appointment
It all starts with a conversation. Learning what someone wants in their smile is the first step. Then diagnosis, treatment planning and a smile design can be started.
Smile makeovers may start with a Smile Design that lets you see a real life Mock-Up of your smile in your mouth before any dentistry is done.
Then you can plan with us, what it is you want, what you want to do, and what the costs are … all up front prior to starting any work.
From Whitening to Veneers, to a complete smile makeover, smile designs allow us to plan your smile goals. We can plan orthodontics, implants and even Dentures that provide the smile design that could be right for you
Smile design is really emotional. We do not realize how much we hide our smile … and hide our personality. Your smile is a window to YOU. And so many of us hide that window because we are unhappy with our smile. It doesn't have to be that way ...
With smile photos and digital impressions we provide the smile designers at our dental laboratory the information needed to make an optimal smile for your face.
We are able to do a “Mock-Up Smile” temporarily in your mouth and we will film you expressing the smile you always wanted.
Then we sit together and plan the steps and treatments needed and the extent of want, need or desire you have to reach your goal. Smiles can now be digitally planned and digital dental procedures can help provide those same dental goals.
“Some say it is someone's eyes we notice first. But we all respond to a smile. It is our confidence, our communication, and our most powerful expression. A smile denotes health, it says something about character, and even friendship.”
“Modern digital dentistry helps take some of the guesswork out of dental treatment. Your Smile can become your trusted, powerful personality booster.”
DR. CURTIS WESTERSUND
The first appointment is gathering records and requests. We will sit down and talk about what you want and discover what is possible. This is an appointment of about 45 minutes. It includes an exploration of your goals, photos of your face and smile, and even digital dental impressions (no more goopy dental trays), and you are done.
We start by filming your own smile for comparison. Then, using specialized trays that will mimic your new smile, we will temporarily place tooth coloured material on your upper teeth and film your new smile while you talk and laugh. We then remove the temporary material and we watch the two videos of you, the before and the mock up Smile.
Now we can begin to plan what is needed to get from your smile to your desired smile. Everyone is different so every plan is going to be unique to you and your needs. We come up with a plan, lay out the costs and move ahead to your goals. Whether you need Veneers, Crowns, Implants, Orthodontics, TMJ Therapy … it is all in the up front planning.
Smile designs can help plan everything from a few simple veneers to full mouth restorations. It may include Orthodontic care, Dental Implants, Full and Partial Dentures, TMJ therapy … it is all up to YOUR own needs and YOUR wants. Smile planning is about finding what you want and then planning the journey. You are in control and we are here to make your dreams a reality.
