When thinking about the total cost of a smile makeover, you should also consider the life-changing value and added confidence of an improved and enhanced smile.
Beyond aesthetic benefits, the advantages of a smile makeover include:
- Lower risk for oral infections or decay
- Stronger overall health and more youthful appearance
- Higher confidence in social scenarios
Smile Makeover Options
A smile makeover involves one or more procedures to correct or conceal a range of dental problems.
The most sought-after smile makeover procedures include:
- Porcelain Veneers: The perfect solution for cracked, chipped or misaligned teeth, veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front of your tooth.
- Dental Implants: Replace missing teeth with custom, fixed dentures made to fit your mouth and complement your facial features.
- Teeth Whitening: With professional whitening, you can correct stained or yellowed teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile.
- Invisalign: If you are looking to close gaps or straighten your crooked smile, Invisalign might be right for you. The series of removable aligners allows you to enjoy nearly undetectable teeth straightening.
Sometimes referred to as a redesign or reconstruction, the ultimate goal of smile makeover procedures is to create a smile that is beautiful, healthy and fully functional.
Smile Makeover Cost
Since the number of cosmetic dentistry procedures vary from patient to patient, the ultimate cost of a smile makeover varies.
Factors that impact the total cost include:
- Which combination of procedures you elect for your personal treatment plan
- Where the affected teeth are located
- Any laboratory costs that are necessary
For example, if your dentist identifies issues such as gum disease, cavities, or other dental health conditions, the treatment may be more expensive or take longer due to restorative needs.
Because treatment is customized, your makeover timeline is also unique to you. Your dentist should provide you with an estimate of how long you can expect the process to last.
