How a full smile makeover can help you love your look

A smile is the physical expression of your most beautiful emotions. It can light up a room, brighten a dark day, and help make a positive, lasting impression on everyone you meet. However, if you are not happy with the way your teeth look, you might hesitate to smile. Fortunately, there is a solution. A smile makeover from Dr. Michelle VanDyke can improve the appearance of your teeth and restore your confidence to flash those pearly whites.

What is a smile makeover?

The simple answer is that a smile makeover is whatever you need it to be. It can consist of a single procedure or a combination of several. Dr. Michelle begins with an in-depth consultation and a complete aesthetic evaluation. Just tell her what you like about your smile, what features you want to accentuate, what you dislike, and what you want to change. Once she understands your goals, she will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to make your dream smile come true.

Cosmetic dental solutions

Depending on your goals, a smile makeover may include one or more of the following:

  • Porcelain veneers – For many people, a complete set of veneers can provide a single-treatment smile makeover. A veneer is an ultra-thin porcelain shell that covers the forward-facing (visible) side of a tooth. One, several, or all of your teeth can be treated with veneers. They can change virtually anything about the appearance of teeth, including size, shape, and color. Veneers can also be used to close gaps and improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth.
  • Dental crowns – If the shape or condition of certain teeth make veneers impractical, Dr. VanDyke may recommend dental crowns instead.
  • Cosmetic fillings, inlays, and onlays – Cavities and other damage impact the health and appearance of teeth. We use tooth-colored resin or porcelain materials and cosmetic design principles to restore the health and functionality of the tooth, with a beautiful and natural-looking result.
  • Tooth replacement solutions – If you are missing one or more teeth, we offer dental implants or dentures. We use quality materials and careful design so that your replacement teeth look natural and dazzling.
