What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a custom-designed combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures. It can address a combination of aesthetic problems you might have with your smile.

During your consultation, Rochester Hills cosmetic dentist Dr. Wolfe will listen to your smile goals. It can sometimes help to bring in pictures of what you might want your smile to look like. These can even be pictures from when you were happy with your smile–if you ever were. Then he will evaluate your smile and determine what approaches will work best for achieving your goals. This is the plan he will present for your approval.

Who’s a Good Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

Good candidates for a smile makeover are people who are unhappy with, even ashamed of, their current smile. Do you hide your smile when you feel happy? Do you avoid talking or eating in public because of your teeth? If so, then you might be a good candidate.

A smile makeover can correct many common complaints people have about their smile, including:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Broken, worn, or chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Unattractive old restorations

During your consultation, Dr. Wolfe will talk to you about what you want to fix, and he will look at the causes of these problems before recommending solutions. In some cases, this might mean addressing other problems, such as gum disease or temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
