at Moreno Valley Dental Group provide comprehensive dentistry to our patients, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures. For some patients, a combination of multiple procedures are necessary to fulfill all of their dental needs. Combining various cosmetic procedures is called a smile makeover. Do you have questions about what a smile makeover entails?

Smile Makeover FAQs

Q1. Is restorative dentistry part of a smile makeover?

A1. Restorative dental work might be necessary before any cosmetic dental work is viable. A beautiful smile will only last so long if it isn’t functional. To ensure a proper foundation for your smile makeover, you may require fillings, inlays, onlays, or root canal procedures. Treatment for periodontal disease may also be on the list of pre-smile makeover procedures.

Q2. For severely stained teeth, will whitening even work?

A2. Whitening is a common finisher for many smile makeovers. When teeth are dull or stained, whitening may be a good choice for you. However, if your stains are intrinsic (internal) or don’t respond to whitening for some reason, porcelain veneers might be a better procedure for you.

Q3. What is dental bonding for?

A3. If you have chips or cracks in your teeth, dental bonding can work wonders. The same material that is used for tooth-colored dental fillings (composite-resin) is used in dental bonding to cover over localized stains, cracks, chips, gaps, or overlaps.

Q4. Are smile makeovers completely customized?

A4. Yes. Smile makeovers are a great solution for people that feel overwhelmed by all of the dental work necessary to simply set up the foundation for cosmetic dental work, let alone to take on multiple procedures. Smile makeovers are tailor-made plans designed for each individual patient. We’ll make sure that you are able to get all the restorative and cosmetic procedures you need in as few steps as possible. Just like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two smile makeovers will be exactly the same.
