Your Smile Makeover

Your most important job as a member of your smile makeover team is to communicate what you don't like about your smile and how you want to improve.

Before your first visit, consider the following questions:

  • What do you like or dislike about the color, size, shape, and spacing of your teeth?
  • Are you pleased with how much your teeth show when you smile and when your lips are relaxed?
  • Do you want perfectly aligned teeth and a bright "Hollywood White," or would you prefer a more natural look with slight color, shape, and shade variations?
  • Would you like more or less of your gums to show when you smile?

It's helpful to bring in pictures of smiles you like, smiles you don't like, and photos of the way your smile used to look, if that's the result you want.

When to Visit the Dentist

Many people only go to the dentist when something is wrong, but when you do this, you'll miss out on many preventive services that can save discomfort and expense down the road. So take advantage of the many benefits dentistry offers you and your family!

Regular dental visits are essential to detect and treat oral health problems early. Some people need to see the dentist more often than others to avoid plaque buildup and gum disease, but everyone should go at least once yearly.

Regular dental visits will include a thorough oral exam to check the health of your teeth and gums, an oral cancer screening, and a professional cleaning.
