A smile makeover can mean different things to different people. For you, a few touchup procedures like professional whitening or dental bonding will do the trick. Others may need to add some restorative procedures like crowns or require the benefits of porcelain veneers and minor orthodontics.

But makeovers all have three steps in common.

Step 1: Get Ready

It can be exciting to think about a sparkling new smile, but the first step in any smile makeover journey is to make sure your teeth are healthy. For one thing, healthy teeth just look more attractive, and when your underlying oral health is good, you have the foundation for a smile that’s as healthy as it looks.

Your dentist will evaluate your needs and use your input to create a treatment plan to get your oral health on track.

Step 2: Get Set

Your smile is healthy, and now the fun begins! As you and your dentist work through the process of planning your new smile, you will have all sorts of possibilities to consider. This is the time to explain exactly what results you want to achieve so a smile plan can be designed to address all your unique desires.

With a treatment plan in hand, your dentist will perform the treatments necessary to reach your goals. But you will play an active part in the process because your input is essential for achieving results that exceed your expectations.

Step 3: Smile!

Your smile makeover was a complete success, and you are delighted with the results. Now you can go out and show off your stunning new look and see the impact it has on your quality of life.

Remember that the underlying health of your teeth and gums is always a factor in the success of any restorative or cosmetic dental work. You will need to protect your investment by being diligent about oral hygiene and seeing your dentist for routine exams and cleanings.
