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 AppointmentYour 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 MakeoverYour 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.
