What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is more than a simple change; it is a custom-designed plan that combines two or more cosmetic procedures. This work is designed to enhance the entire appearance of your smile. In most cases, before the cosmetic procedures can be performed, the patient will require some restorative treatments.

Your Smile Makeover Appointment

Your initial smile makeover appointment will be detailed and thorough. Dr. Starr and Dr. Orta want to understand your goals and what you are hoping to achieve. During our time together, we will want to review your medical history, including any medications you are taking, even if the treatment seems irrelevant to your mouth or teeth. Dr. Starr and Dr. Orta will perform a full examination of your mouth and surrounding area. We will examine your head, neck, intraoral dental, periodontal, and occlusal in its current status. Using this information, we can then make recommendations for a treatment plan. We will take your physical, financial and aesthetic needs into consideration. In many cases, Dr. Starr and Dr. Orta can display a chairside composite mockup of your treatment plan. This basic preview will allow for better communication with the patient before treatment begins. With a plan in place, we can then create a diagnostic mockup, this will allow for incredible treatment precision. Your diagnostic mockup helps the doctors to identify and fine-tune any adjustments as necessary before the final treatments are performed.

Scope of Your Smile Makeover

Your smile makeover is designed to enhance and compliment your personality and facial features. Our goal is to improve areas of trouble, both in function and aesthetics. The procedures we perform are carefully selected to upgrade your look.

Our staff takes pride in continuing education and experience in cosmetic dentistry and prosthetics. Along with continuously growing in knowledge, is staying up to date with the latest technology. Science is rapidly evolving everywhere, including in dental technology. Our patients benefit from our advancements in digital and laboratory technologies. With these tools, Dr. Starr and Dr. Orta can provide top-of-the-line treatments and restorations that blend in seamlessly with our patients' smiles.

A smile makeover may include:

•  Porcelain Veneers: A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that we can bond to the face of your tooth. This is a simple way to conceal minor imperfections or improve the look of your tooth. Veneers are used to conceal teeth that have chipped, cracked, stained, or need gaps closed. They can also be used to help teeth appear straighter, or even.
•  Teeth Whitening: Whitening your teeth is one of the fastest ways to make a large impact on the look of your teeth. Working with Dr. Starr and Dr. Orta, we can personalize your treatment to fit your needs. Store bought products take considerable time. We can whiten your teeth faster and better.
•  Gum Reshaping: Known in dentistry as gingival sculpting, we can help you with a gummy smile. Excessive gum tissue is unattractive and can provide places for bacteria to hide. A simple in-office procedure can make a significant impact on your look and oral health.
•  Dental Bonding: Small chips and cracks may be able to be fixed with simple dental bonding. Using composite filling material, we can cover small imperfections in your teeth. This process is simple, fast and painless.
•  Replace Old Fillings: Old dental restorations can wear down, discolor, or disrupt your bite balance. Replacing old fillings is a fast and simple way to improve the look of your smile
•  Create a Customized Prosthetic Device: Whether you need a dental crown, a dental bridge, a partial or a full denture, we can restore your damaged or missing teeth. Dr. Starr and Dr. Ortaspecializes in the creation and placement of ceramic restorations. Working closely with their master technician, Jose Lara, in his onsite lab, we offer a full range of restorations, including all-ceramic high strength crowns and bridges.
