Dr. David J. Wiseman offers customized smile makeover treatments at his Cedarhurst, NY, and Queens offices to improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem. A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic dentistry procedures and can include restorative procedures such as crowns and dental implants, as needed. We understand that every smile is different, and Dr. Wiseman will work with you throughout the makeover process to choose the appropriate procedures to achieve your desired outcomes.
Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation with Dr. Wiseman, you will work together to design your personalized smile makeover. Each treatment plan is different, and the costs can vary depending on the extent of treatment. To determine whether you are a good candidate, Dr. Wiseman will first review your health history, complete a comprehensive oral exam, and perform x-rays. If you currently have dental health concerns such as gum disease or cavities, Dr. Wiseman will address these before moving ahead with cosmetic treatment.
Dr. Wiseman will explain all of your cosmetic dentistry options so that you can make an informed decision. Once you have selected your procedures, we will create a mockup that will allow you to preview your results. If the initial mockup does not match your expectations, we will work with you to make adjustments. When you are happy with your proposed treatment, we can schedule the first phase of procedures.
Dr. Wiseman is a friendly dentist who values your input and provides caring treatment in a modern, comfortable, and clean setting.
Planning Your Treatment
Your smile makeover is tailored to help you achieve a symmetrical, proportionate smile. We will closely follow the principles of smile design, also known as the Golden Proportions, to design your treatment and harmonize your smile with your facial features. When deciding which treatments are best for you, we will examine your facial symmetry and proportions.
Once we have measured your facial features, we can address the hard and soft tissues that need to be treated during your smile makeover. If your smile is asymmetrical, porcelain veneers or dental bonding can create an appearance of symmetry. If your teeth are yellowed or discolored, whitening can not only brighten your smile, but also help your entire face to look rejuvenated. Patients usually choose to undergo whitening before receiving treatments such as veneers or bonding. In this way, these treatments can be matched to the bright new shade of surrounding teeth.
Often, excess gum tissue can make your teeth appear small or underdeveloped. Gum contouring can remove small amounts of soft tissue to give you a balanced, symmetrical smile line (the curvature of the top teeth, which should approximately match the curvature of the bottom lip when you smile). If you have missing or badly damaged teeth, dental implants and crowns can restore aesthetics to your smile and also provide health benefits.
Benefits of a Smile Makeover
A smile makeover can help you achieve a whiter, straighter, gap-free smile and conceal chips and flaws through a combination of personalized treatments. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, your treatment plan can also have functional benefits such as improved alignment and a reduced risk of teeth grinding. Based on your preferences and personal schedule, we will strategically plan procedures and appointments to achieve your desired results in the quickest time possible.
