Preparing for Your Smile Makeover

Considerable preparation goes into planning and performing a smile makeover. It is extremely important to make certain that your gums and teeth are healthy before any cosmetic work is performed. If you are a new patient, Dr. Mateja will conduct a comprehensive initial examination that evaluates both your dental and physical health. The exam includes complete digital x-rays and both intraoral and extraoral photography. She will also check for cavities, perform a bite analysis, and conduct a number of other tests. By establishing a thorough understanding of the current state of your smile and your health history, Dr. Mateja can perform a smile makeover that meets your goals and provides long-term satisfaction. At this initial exam, you will also be able to discuss your specific goals for the outcome of your treatment.

The Anatomy of a Smile Makeover

Because a smile makeover is tailored to meet your needs, no two treatments are alike. Dr. Mateja may first want to address any existing dental issues such as decay or gingivitis before performing any cosmetic procedures. Once these underlying problems have been addressed, you can choose the cosmetic treatments that best suit your needs. Dr. Mateja may recommend:

In many cases, patients who wish to enhance their smiles with porcelain veneers or dental crowns may choose to first have their teeth whitened first for a more dramatic overall enhancement. Gum contouring is often an excellent complement for veneers and crowns, creating a more attractive frame for your enhanced smile. In some instances, Dr. Mateja may also recommend some restorative procedures as part of your smile makeover. For example, if you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Mateja may recommend a dental implant, which can provide an outstanding anchor for a dental crown or bridge. Regardless of which procedures comprise your smile makeover, the end result will be a smile that you can be proud to share with everyone you meet.
