Have you been thinking about some cosmetic dentistry? Maybe you want your teeth to be just a bit straighter, whiter or repaired in some way? If you have ever hidden a healthy set of teeth and gums out of self-consciousness, you should consider treatment. If you know that treatment means more than a single procedure, you should explore your options for a smile makeover at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry – Dr. James L. Schmidt & Associates in St. Louis, MO.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
As your preferred dentist in St. Louis, we may suggest a number of options available from our cosmetic dentist. When it is determined that you require two or more treatments to get the smile you want, it is called a smile makeover. What this really means is that there is no such thing as a standard smile makeover because every single patient is different.
We don’t just itemize what we feel you might require. Instead, we consult with you about your concerns, your budget, your personal timeline and more. After all, we would not recommend Invisalign if you said you didn’t want to wait up to a year or more for results. If possible, we might recommend a treatment like veneers or Lumineers instead.
Of course, no smile makeover is started without first ensuring it is built on a foundation of optimal oral health. This means we address general and restorative treatments in addition to esthetics. For instance, your makeover may include the use of a dental implant if you are missing a tooth. It might mean the use of crowns to replace old metal fillings, but it can also include whitening, veneers, inlays/onlays and other cosmetic options.
We also create a customized plan which works around your personal goals. If you want treatment to take only a short amount of time, we can suggest the options that would work best within that time frame. However, if you are in no hurry, we can also offer many alternatives that could require a bit of time, but which would also satisfy your goals. One key benefit of a smile makeover is that it begins with good oral health and ensures that you maintain it over the long term, providing you with a good looking and fully functional smile for years to come.
