During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that made your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at Implant & General Dentistry is a unique treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the look of your teeth — and your overall oral health. A smile makeover or full mouth makeover may consist of tooth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), veneers, orthodontics, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include restorations, such as bridges or crowns, to fill in gaps in your smile. If you want to know more about improving your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with seasoned dentist Dr. Andrew Flipse at our office in Murfreesboro, TN to receive your custom treatment plan.
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic or restorative procedures. Dr. Flipse will personalize your smile makeover treatment to fit your goals and concerns, but it might include teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that may be included in your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Implant & General Dentistry, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your natural teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Flipse will have to ensure that your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.
What To Expect
Each full mouth makeover is unique so Dr. Flipse will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. We will work with you to plan out your appointment(s) accordingly to complete all of the steps in your smile makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, but other sedation options may be suggested if you need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Flipse and our dental staff will be available to answer any questions or help you feel more comfortable.
As soon as your full mouth makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily maintenance, you need to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Implant & General Dentistry so Dr. Flipse can monitor your progress. With proper care, the outcomes of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Flipse during your visits.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Flipse can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. He can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we take, like low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance, although some restorations may be partly insured. Our office will contact your insurance carrier to confirm your exact coverage and personal expenses.
