What is a smile makeover?
Throughout your lifetime, you may have experienced accidents, dental issues, and more that created a less than perfect smile. Our general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Boulard, offers many cosmetic options to remedy your smile's aesthetic appearance. A smile makeover at Something To Smile About can be a unique treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to rejuvenate the look of your teeth — and possibly your overall oral health.
A smile makeover at Something To Smile About with Dr. Boulard and his team might include:
- Dental bonding and contouring
- Crown lengthening
- Snap-On-Smile® appliance
- Professional-grade tooth whitening (at-home or in-office treatments)
- Porcelain veneers
- Replacement of old metal fillings with tooth-colored composite resin
- Replacement of old dental restorations
Your smile makeover may also include newly placed restorations such as dental crowns or bridges to correct gaps in your smile. If you are interested in redesigning your smile so that it's beautiful and healthy, make a consultation with Dr. Boulard at his office in Merrimack, NH to get your customized plan.
Who qualifies for a smile makeover?
A smile makeover may be helpful if you want to enhance the appearance of your teeth, or if you need several cosmetic or restorative dental services. Dr. Boulard will customize your smile makeover plan to meet your concerns and goals. Other cosmetic treatments that might be in your plan are veneers or bonding and contouring to improve the shape and length of your teeth and to cover minor openings between your teeth. Restorations (crowns and bridges) may be used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Something To Smile About, we offer custom restorations to ensure they blend with your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Before you have cosmetic treatments, Dr. Boulard will need to make certain your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems such as a severe dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, this will have to be treated first.
Dr. Boulard's Smile Makeover Technique
Every smile makeover is personalized. Dr. Boulard will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, such as the number of visits you may require. Our Something To Smile About team will plan out your appointment(s) to complete the steps of your makeover. Local numbing injections may be needed before a few of your procedures, and sedation options may be included if you need them for dental anxiety. Throughout your smile makeover, Dr. Boulard and his team will be available to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
How do I take care of my teeth after a smile makeover?
Once your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth with a good home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). In addition to daily maintenance, you need to make appointments for dental exams and cleanings at Something To Smile About so Dr. Boulard can check your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the results of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up treatments every few years, such as teeth whitening, may help to refresh your smile. Veneers and restorations may also have to be repaired or replaced, which will all be discussed with Dr. Boulard during your visits.
