Smile Makeover

As experienced Half Moon Bay cosmetic dentists, it's important to us that you love your smile. We have the solution to repair damaged, failing, or missing teeth through a series of personalized restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures. A smile makeover can restore your confidence and oral health.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

Your smile makeover will be designed to create a healthy, beautiful smile you'll be proud of. These procedures primarily treat the following oral conditions:

Discolored teeth
Alignment concerns
Uneven spacing
Lost or missing teeth
Chipped teeth
Fractured teeth
Undesirable tooth length, texture, or shape
Gaps between teeth

Along with our in-office procedures, we may also work with an orthodontist to provide Invisalign or braces to correct a bite problem.

A smile makeover is effective for repairing many aesthetic issues. We love seeing our patients' joy when they see their smiles transform!

What Are the Side Effects of a Smile Makeover?

The long-lasting benefits of a smile makeover are worthwhile; however, some patients experience the following temporary effects:

Slight toothache
Gum bleeding
Inflammation and irritation in the area
Tooth sensitivity
Jaw pain
Bruising and pain (in case of dental surgery)

In most cases, any side effects that do appear fade within a day or two. The possibility of mild discomfort shouldn't deter patients from getting a beautiful smile. Most side effects can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Why Invest in a Smile Makeover

Not only does a beautiful smile make you more confident, but it also helps you show your best self to the world. A smile makeover will allow you to show off your teeth rather than hide their imperfections.

Half Moon Bay Family Dentistry can help make this possible for you. Consider how you would answer the following questions:

Are you satisfied with the color of your teeth?
Do you want any chipped, cracked, or worn teeth repaired?
Is your smile too gummy?
Would you like to change the size or shape of your teeth?
Do you have concerns about the spacing and alignment of your teeth?

Your answers to these questions will determine whether you could benefit from a smile makeover by our Half Moon Bay cosmetic dentist.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?

The cost of a smile makeover varies depending on what treatments are needed. The best way to determine how much you should invest in your smile is to meet with our dentist.

Schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and concerns, and we'll provide you with a customized treatment plan.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Last?

Each type of restoration has a different expected lifespan. But the most effective way to get the most out of your new smile is to practice proper at-home care and schedule routine checkups.

Porcelain veneers typically last up to 10 years. With proper maintenance, some last up to 20 years, but they may eventually fall off or break, requiring a replacement. It's recommended that crowns and bridges be replaced after 10 or more years.

Dental implants may last 15 years or longer. But sometimes, implant failure occurs. When this happens, the implant must be removed and replaced.

Other smile makeover procedures require some maintenance treatment, like teeth whitening. While a professional, in-office whitening treatment may give you a brighter smile for up to three years, the results can fade.

Teeth can become discolored again due to failing to follow a good at-home oral health routine, using tobacco products, and eating or drinking foods and beverages that stain teeth.

Ask our staff how you can prolong your results with teeth whitening maintenance. These follow-up treatments can often be done with custom trays and a professional take-home whitening kit.
