There are many aesthetic imperfections that can prevent you from achieving a beautiful, healthy smile. Rather than addressing each concern individually, our cosmetic dentist offers a comprehensive treatment plan designed to optimize the symmetry, proportion, and color of your teeth for a complete smile makeover.
A smile makeover is a combination treatment plan designed to correct multiple aesthetic concerns at once, allowing you to achieve your dream smile with more comfort and convenience than pursuing each cosmetic procedure individually. The treatments included in a smile makeover are tailored to your unique needs and concerns, providing a personalized experience in which you can attain a stunning smile you can be proud of. Unlike a full mouth reconstruction that aims to rehabilitate function, a smile makeover primarily focuses on aesthetic improvement. As a speaker for Invisalign® and a prominent cosmetic dentist in the Bayside area, Dr. Nicholas Rallis can utilize the latest smile makeover techniques to treat a range of dental issues, including:
We offer an array of treatments to resolve your concerns and Dr. Rallis, along with our entire dental team, can help you decide the best combination to create an ideal smile within the context of your cosmetic goals. In general, a smile makeover may consist of:
It is also not uncommon for more restorative treatments, such as same day dental crowns, to be incorporated into a smile makeover for the best possible outcome. However, while a smile makeover can certainly strengthen the teeth and improve biting ability, dental issues such as multiple missing teeth, the presence of gum disease, extensive decay, or other far-reaching functional concerns may be better treated with full mouth reconstruction. Rest assured that Dr. Rallis and our experienced team will carefully evaluate your oral structures and recommend the most advantageous treatment plan to fulfill your goals.
A smile makeover may take place all at once or over the course of multiple stages, depending on your treatments of interest. An oral examination and initial consultation with Dr. Rallis will give him an understanding of your needs, concerns, and hopes for the outcome, allowing him to develop the details of your smile makeover. We understand that some patients may feel apprehensive or anxious about undergoing treatment, and offer the option of complementing certain procedures with sedation dentistry. These nerve-relaxing techniques, which range from nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation to IV sedation, are tailored according to your unique anxiety levels. Each method is closely monitored by our dentists to help ensure your ultimate safety and comfort.
Once your treatment plan is finalized, Dr. Rallis will let you know exactly what you can expect with regard to the timeframe of your smile makeover and the order in which each procedure will take place. You will be fully informed of every step of the treatment process, from your consultation to the final reveal of your smile makeover results.
The price of a smile makeover generally depends on how extensive your concerns are, as well as which procedures were utilized to rejuvenate your smile. Other factors that can influence the total cost include whether preliminary treatment, such as periodontal (gum disease) therapy, was necessary and if sedation dentistry was employed. Due to the personalized nature of a smile makeover, an exact cost estimate cannot be determined until your needs are assessed in a consultation. Our team will apprise you of your expenses and payment options after your treatment plan is created. To help make the benefits of a smile makeover available for all who seek it, we accept dental financing from CareCredit®. Through the many low- to no-interest payment plans offered by this reputable healthcare lending institution, qualified patients can pay for their treatment in manageable installments rather than a lump sum.
