Smile Makeover Candidates By Craig Goldin DDS on May 29, 2012

Troy Smile MakeoversIf you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, chances are good that you are a candidate for a smile makeover. For patients in Troy, smile makeovers can provide an instant boost in self-esteem and self-confidence. Dental imperfections often leave our patients feeling anxious and self-conscious when smiling and talking. Through smile makeovers, our patients are able to revitalize their smiles, which often results in an improvement in their quality of life.

What Is A Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a treatment plan consisting of one or more dental treatments designed to enhance your smile.  Because no two people share the same goals and needs, and every smile is unique, a smile makeover is tailored to each individual patient. Troy smile makeovers may be used to address cracked or broken teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, uneven teeth, missing teeth, teeth damaged by decay, and crooked teeth.

Smile Makeover Candidates

Patients who are free of gum disease and are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles are good candidates for smile makeovers. Patients must maintain proper oral hygiene habits to ensure the health of their teeth and that the results of their smile makeovers last as long as possible. Any dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease, should be addressed before undergoing cosmetic dental procedures, including a smile makeover. Troy cosmetic dentistry patients with extensive dental problems affecting the function of the teeth may benefit from restorative dental treatments rather than a smile makeover.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular dental treatments available today is teeth whitening. The easiest and quickest way to revitalize your smile is through laser teeth whitening.  Teeth whitening can provide exquisite and long-lasting results. Drinking coffee, wine, and tea causes discoloration and staining to occur in the teeth’s enamel and dentin. Smoking also contributes greatly to discoloration of the teeth. Teeth may become discolored from normal wear that occurs naturally from aging. An amazing advantage of teeth whitening is that it can be completed within one hour. Because of the quickness of the treatment, many of our patients undergo laser teeth whitening while on their lunch breaks. With laser teeth whitening, your teeth can become six to ten shades whiter than they were before treatment. Many patients experience an immediate boost in their self-confidence after undergoing teeth whitening treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

For our patients in Troy, porcelain veneers are an ideal treatment option; they allow for complete smile makeovers while still achieving natural-looking results. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. Aesthetically pleasing and natural looking, porcelain veneers provide inconspicuous results while effectively improving the appearance of chipped teeth, crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, and discolored teeth; they can also close gaps between the teeth.


Another option in your smile makeover is Invisalign®. Invisalign® corrects orthodontic issues while remaining completely inconspicuous. Because they are virtually undetectable when worn, Invisalign® aligners are ideal for the patient who wishes to correct his or her dental flaws without drawing undue attention. Invisalign® can correct many common dental issues, including spaced teeth, overly crowded teeth, crossbite, overbite, and underbite.
