Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Hartford cosmetic smile makeover

Hello Owensboro! Welcome to the Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry dental blog. Let’s talk about smile makeovers. Some Owensboro patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a dazzling smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile transformation combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile metamorphosis. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, a cosmetic dental smile makeover could involve crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

We are Drs. David Thompson and Vicki Frey. We have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Owensboro, Kentucky since 1986. Performing successful smile redesigns makes my profession extremely fulfilling. Patients who plan to receive a smile makeover should take their time choosing a dentist to perform it. We invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs and wishes. During the consultation, we can tell you about our extensive experience and show you before and after pictures of satisfied patients.

When we design a custom smile makeover, we study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves extraordinary results and sets our practice apart.
