If you struggle with the appearance of imperfections of the smile and are considering a smile makeover, the team at Scripps West Dental can help!

What is a smile makeover?

Our dentist in Mira Mesa is pleased to offer smile makeovers. A smile makeover is a way to drastically improve the appearance of the teeth and gums for a more attractive look. These aesthetic treatments are customized to a patient’s unique needs. During an evaluation with the team of Scripps West Dental, patients can undergo an assessment and discuss with a professional the areas of concern within their smiles. Whether it’s gapped teeth or a chipped tooth, we can help. We assess the patient’s current smile and then make recommendations regarding the treatments that might be included in a smile makeover. While some patients may choose to have their cosmetic treatments done over the course of time, others want same-day results. Is this possible? Absolutely! The team at Scripps West Dental is pleased to provide restorative and cosmetic solutions that offer same-day improvements!

What treatments are integrated into a smile makeover?

Every smile makeover is customized for each individual patient based on their unique needs. During an evaluation, patients can talk about the areas of concern that they would like improved. Then, our dentists will speak with the individual about the treatments that can help. Some of the services that might be provided in a patient’s dental plan may include:

How long does a smile makeover take?

With the right treatments being performed, many patients can have their smile makeover completed in just one visit. This is common when patients require dental bonding and professional teeth whitening. Other treatments, such as the fabrication of a denture or dental bridge, may take longer due to the process needed to create these restorations. We offer same-day dental crowns in Mira Mesa thanks to digital dentistry in San Diego, CA. Patients might also want to spread out their treatments if they do not have dental insurance coverage and want to pay as they go to properly afford their smile makeover, while others can ask our front office team about financing options.
