Welcome to the Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry dental blog. Let’s talk about smile redesigns and smile makeovers in Santee. Some patients wonder if the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry. For examples, is the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a stunning smile.
Generally, however, a complete smile redesign combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile transformation. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts. For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, porcelain veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and professional teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
At our office, we have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in La Mesa, California since 1986. Performing successful smile redesigns makes my profession extremely fulfilling. Patients who plan to receive a smile makeover should take their time choosing a dentist to perform it. We invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs and wishes. During the consultation, our team can tell you about my extensive experience and show you before and after pictures of satisfied patients.
When we design custom smile makeovers in Santee, we study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gum line, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to smile makeovers in Santee achieves fantastic results and sets our practice apart.
