What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a procedure designed to help improve the cosmetic appeal and aesthetic of your teeth and overall smile. This treatment may be a good option if you need multiple cosmetic or restorative procedures. This can include, but it is not limited to:

  • Teeth whitening

  • Bonding/contouring

  • Veneers

  • Bridges and crowns

Dr. Henegar can help come up with a treatment plan so you will know the number of visits you might require or what procedures you will need. Before your makeover, an assessment will be done to assess the health of your teeth and gums.

How can I care for my teeth after my smile makeover?

After you have achieved the desired results you want, you will need to keep your smile in good condition. There are multiple ways you can do this, including:

  1. Keep a good oral hygiene regimen. You should brush and floss at least twice a day and attend biannual dental appointments and cleanings. Dental appointments allow Dr. Henegar to keep track of your results and recommend any extra procedures as needed.

  2. Avoid foods that can damage your teeth. This could include overly hard foods that can damage your cosmetic work or sticky foods that could lead to an overgrowth of bacteria.

  3. Stay away from foods and drinks that stain teeth. Beverages like coffee and tea could stain your newly whitened teeth and hurt your results.

  4. Stop using tobacco products. Smoking and chewing tobacco can lead to stained teeth and a decrease in oral health. This could lead to a compromise in the results of your smile makeover.

  5. Use a night guard. If you are prone to clenching or grinding your teeth when you sleep, you might want to buy a night guard. Grinding your teeth can harm any cosmetic restorations you may have after your procedure.
