In this article from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we’re going to talk about smile transformations. Some people confuse it with cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a beautiful smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile redesign combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. The sum ends up being greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers are both about making positive changes to your teeth, while minding the integrity of your dental health. It crosses seamlessly into general and family dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
