Who is a candidate for a smile makeover?
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth or if you need multiple restorative or cosmetic procedures on your front teeth. Dr. Riley will personalize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your goals and concerns. This might simply consist of teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Teeth that have turned brown due to a traumatic accident might require external bleaching, or a root canal with internal bleaching or a porcelain veneer to correct the discoloration. Other cosmetic procedures that might be part of your plan are bonding and contouring or minimal-prep veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth and mask minor openings between them. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be needed to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Riley Dental, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Riley will have to make sure your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then these will have to be treated first to ensure that your smile makeover is long lasting and beautiful for life.
What To Expect during a smile makeover
Each smile makeover treatment plan is customized to your individual desires and needs. Dr. Riley will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits your smile make over will require. He will work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the procedures in your makeover. Local anesthesia might be needed before a few of your treatments; however, other sedation choices may be suggested if you require help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Riley, along with his staff, will be accessible to answer any of your questions.

Along with every-day maintenance, you will need to make appointments for dental examinations and cleanings at Riley Dental so Dr. Riley can track your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the outcome of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your results. The easiest way to keep any smile makeover looking fresh and avoid the need for repairs is good home care with the regular recommended dental cleanings and professional maintenance.

He can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we offer, like payment plans and third-party medical financing.
