How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

Full smile makeoverThere’s an entire category of dentistry dedicated to making your smile look the way you want: cosmetic dentistry. Here at Kevin Postol DDS, we have a wide range of options to give you a smile makeover.

How does a smile makeover work?

When a patient comes into our office wanting a smile makeover, they’ll sit down with Dr. Postol to go over exactly what changes they want made to their smile. Whiter teeth, veneers, implants, crowns: we can handle any and all requests—all part of Dr. Postol’s effort to be the best cosmetic dentist in Ballwin, MO.

Once the initial consultation is complete, Dr. Postol will create a treatment plan that encompasses all the requests you’ve made to change your smile into exactly what you want.

When do you need a smile makeover?

Do you need a full smile makeover, or would a simple teeth whitening session do the trick? Sometimes, it’s hard to tell whether or not you need a full smile makeover. Your best bet is to describe the smile you want to Dr. Postol. He can tell you whether it’s achievable through one procedure, or whether you’ll need a more in-depth approach. Any serious dental issues also make you a candidate for a full makeover, as do any of the following conditions:

  • Unexpected accident or trauma to the mouth
  • Poor diet/oral care for years
  • Constant clenching or grinding of your teeth
  • An uneven bite
  • Persistent acid reflux

This isn’t a comprehensive list of the issues that may cause you to need a smile makeover, but it’s a start. If you have any questions, or think you’d benefit from a full smile makeover, please don’t hesitate to contact our office and schedule a consultation.

What procedures are done during a smile makeover?

Depending on what you want done to your smile, a wide variety of options exist. Some of the most common procedures include:

  • Bite or alignment treatment
  • Dental implants
  • Dental bridges
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Full mouth reconstruction

Not everyone needs a full smile makeover, but if you do, we can give you the smile you want no matter how far away it may seem now. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation, and let Dr. Postol perfect your smile.
