Smile Makeover Questions

Miami and Coral Gables, Florida

A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to correct any cosmetic complaints you may have about the appearance of your smile.

Miami Designer Smiles can comprise a smile makeover to help you meet your aesthetic goals if several different treatments are required in order to reach those objectives.

Your Miami cosmetic dentists at Miami Designer Smiles are here to provide you with answers to commonly asked questions regarding a smile makeover.

Are there functional benefits to a smile makeover?

Generally, yes. A healthy smile is an attractive smile and generally vice versa. When you have appearance concerns corrected, you will often find that some minor bite issues will be resolved. If you have major bite issues including temporomandibular joint disorder, we can make those a focus of your smile makeover. In fact, many of our Miami-area patients who receive cosmetic dental work report that their teeth function on a higher level following the procedures.

What problems can be corrected with a smile makeover?

A smile makeover can be designed to correct most major cosmetic complaints, including teeth that are:

  • Missing
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Broken
  • Crooked
  • Crowding other teeth in the mouth
  • Too long
  • Too short
  • Too uneven
  • Decayed or otherwise damaged

If you have any of these problems, a smile makeover can help.

What procedures are included in a smile makeover?

Since a smile makeover is custom-designed to meet your cosmetic goals, the actual treatments involved will vary.

However, commonly requested treatments in a smile makeover include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Crowns
  • Inlays/onlays
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Gum recontouring

Our skilled Miami cosmetic dentists, Dr. Raul Garcia and Dr. Conchi Sanchez-Garcia, will listen to your cosmetic goals, evaluate your teeth, and give you options for which treatments you might want to combine in your smile makeover. Just as each person is unique, every smile makeover is different. However, we seek to achieve the same result every time… the beautiful smile you always wanted!

How long will my smile makeover take?

That depends on what treatments you combine in your smile makeover, as well as your cosmetic goals. For example, receiving a smile makeover consisting of teeth whitening in combination with porcelain veneers will take a few weeks. However, if you want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign, the makeover may take up to a year.

Other factors that can influence how long it takes to complete a smile makeover include:

  • The condition of your oral health
  • Any pre-existing conditions that may complicate dental work
  • Your schedule
  • Your budget

How much does a smile makeover cost?

Miami Designer Smiles believes that cost never should be the dictating factor when determining level of care. You can pay for each cosmetic treatment during a smile makeover when it happens, instead of having to pay for the entire cost of all the procedures in a smile makeover in a single lump-sum payment.

Remember, high-quality cosmetic dentistry can be expensive. This is because we use high-quality materials in performing advanced procedures at the cutting edge of dental science and do so using state-of-the-art technology and tools. Miami Designer Smiles offers several payment options, including third-party financing with monthly payments that should fit into almost any household budget.

Am I a good candidate for a smile makeover?

You should be in good oral health before considering a smile makeover. Specifically, any active tooth decay or gum disease must be treated before undergoing a smile makeover. By addressing any immediate oral health needs first, the likelihood of having to undergo repeat treatments is reduced to a significant degree. This is why our Miami cosmetic dentists will assess the state of your oral health during your consultation for a smile makeover before proceeding with any treatments.

Why should I choose Miami Designer Smiles to complete my smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a complex combination of procedures that demands an experienced cosmetic dentist with the training, experience, and perception to be able to harmonize all these treatments to get you the best possible results from the combination of procedures you have chosen. Both our Miami cosmetic dentists have undergone extensive post-graduate training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the premier institution in North America for education in the specializations of cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry.
