Questions You Should Ask Before a Smile Makeover?

November 6, 2023

Bright yellow question markIf you don’t like the way your teeth look, your cosmetic dentist can revamp your pearly whites. They can give your smile a makeover using the latest solutions in dentistry. However, a smile makeover is a big investment. Don’t worry if you have a few questions. Here are the answers you need for a picture-perfect smile.

Which Procedure is Right for Me?

There’s no cookie-cutter treatment to create a stunning smile because every mouth and situation differs. Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth and learn more about your goals to establish a personalized treatment plan, which may include 1 or more procedures, like:

  • Veneers: Bonding veneers to the teeth visible when smiling fixes many issues at once using a minimally invasive method.
  • Tooth Bonding: Correct minor cosmetic concerns quickly using a resin material.
  • Metal-Free Restorations: Tooth-colored materials are used to create restorations that look like real teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: Age-related and surface stains can be improved by 8 shades or more with a professional whitening treatment.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

Since every treatment is unique, there’s no way to know how long the process will take without first consulting with your dentist. You may need a little prep work before getting started with your smile makeover. Some cosmetic procedures can be completed in 1-2 appointments, while others may require multiple appointments.

How Much is It Going to Cost?

There’s no flat fee for a smile makeover because there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Many factors affect the cost, like preparatory procedures, cosmetic service, and the complexity of your case. Your dental team will review your estimate and explain the fees, so you’ll know exactly what you will have to pay before committing to anything.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance?

It’s rare for dental insurance to cover cosmetic services, but there are exceptions. Many elective procedures also provide restorative benefits. If your dentist determines treatment is medically necessary, your dental insurance may cover some of the expenses. Your dental plan may also include your consultation or diagnostic services. 

You can’t put a price on the benefits of a beautiful, confident smile. You can achieve noticeable results that look natural. You’ll have a smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
