During your life, you may have had dental problems or experienced other difficulties that made your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a personalized treatment plan that includes cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth and the overall health of your mouth.
A smile makeover typically involves a combination of treatments, including but not limited to:
Are You a Candidate?
A smile makeover can help if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth or if you need several restorative or cosmetic procedures. Dr. Peterson will customize your smile makeover plan to achieve your goals. He may recommend teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your tooth enamel. Other cosmetic treatments he might include as part of your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to improve the shape and length of your teeth and to cover small gaps between them. You might also need a dental restoration, like a crown or a bridge to replace one or more missing teeth. At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we only use custom-made restorations, so they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth for a seamless final result.
Before you receive any cosmetic dental procedure, Dr. Peterson will need to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough to undergo treatment. If you have any prohibitive oral health problem, like a misaligned bite or gum disease, he will need to address that issue first as part of your treatment plan.
Real Patients, Real Results
What To Expect
Every smile makeover is fully customized, so Dr. Peterson will go over what to expect during treatment, including how many appointments you will need. He will also help you plan your appointments to complete each procedure in your smile makeover according to a schedule that fits your lifestyle and goals. Dr. Peterson and his team will be available to answer any questions you may have while your smile makeover is in progress.
After completing your smile makeover, if you want to enjoy the results for as long as possible, you’ll need a good home oral care routine, and that means brushing and flossing every day. In addition to everyday care, you should continue to make appointments for dental exams and cleanings at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry as recommended so Dr. Peterson can monitor your oral health. With appropriate maintenance, the results of your smile makeover should last for many, many years. For some treatments, like teeth whitening, you will need touch-up treatments every few years to keep your smile looking fresh. Veneers and some restorations may also need to be repaired or replaced over time. Dr. Peterson will give you all the details in your appointments, so you will always be well informed and prepared.
