Cosmetic dentistry and aesthetic restorations pose so many options! Which procedures will give you the look you want? How can you know what attributes your unique smile should have?
Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Safarian trained at world-renown postgraduate institutions, so he has the expertise and artistic eye to determine the best options for your smile makeover plan. After a thorough assessment of your existing dentition, smile goals, and facial features, Dr. Safarian will present you with a custom treatment plan. His suggestions may include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, tooth or gum recontouring, or aesthetic restorations.
A smile makeover is a custom procedure designed to help you achieve the smile appearance you desire, whether that’s the smile of your dreams or the smile of your youth.
A Detailed Consultation
A smile makeover begins with a personal consultation. Dr. Safarian will listen closely to your smile goals. We understand this can be hard to communicate, so here are some tips. Images can help. Ideally, bring in images from when you were happy with your smile. We can use these images to make a restoration plan. However, if you don’t have these types of images, you can bring in images of celebrities whose smiles you like. This isn’t as good because their face isn’t your face, and their smile won’t look as good in your mouth. However, it can help us design a smile that fits you and will be beautiful to you. In addition, we can show you before and after images that are similar to your case so you can see what we can do for you.
Health and Beauty
When it comes to your smile, health and beauty are closely linked. After your consultation, Dr. Safarian will conduct a thorough exam of your oral health to see what we need to do to improve your oral health. Dr. Safarian will talk to you about your oral health and will likely show you images of your teeth so you can see what he sees in terms of health problems that might need to be addressed.
Then he’ll design a treatment plan that will not only achieve your cosmetic goals, but also restore your smile to optimal health.
Smile Makeover Cost and Time
One thing you should bring up during the consultation is any restrictions you might have in terms of cost or time. If you have a budget for your smile makeover, let us know. Likewise, if you need to see results by a certain time because of a special event, tell us. Modern dentistry often gives us options so we can be flexible in terms of cost and time.
If you are concerned about smile makeover cost, we might be able to recommend more economical options such as dental bonding instead of veneers. But you need to be aware of the tradeoffs: you may be sacrificing appearance and/or durability to get a lower cost. We can also sometimes used a phased treatment approach that will spread out the cost of your procedure to help it fit in your budget. And we offer financing to help you pay for your smile makeover.
If you need results quickly, we usually have options that can get results right away. Again, bonding is very fast, but veneers are relatively fast, too, when compared to orthodontics, for example. Sometimes we can rush restorations, but it might come with an additional cost.
