Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Who is a good candidate for a smile makeover?

If you wish you could have a bright, vibrant smile that radiates beauty, but you don’t know where to start, you’re not alone. Dr. Bell helps hundreds of patients achieve their ideal smiles every year. In fact, creating beautiful new smiles is one of his favorite things to do.

If imperfections in your teeth are keeping you from flashing a smile in public, you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover. Dr. Bell works with you to develop a smile makeover plan designed to meet your individual goals. Your smile makeover can be as minor as teeth whitening or as complex as complete tooth restorations.

A smile makeover can help correct:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Yellow or discolored teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Unsightly amalgam fillings

What cosmetic procedures are involved in a smile makeover?

Depending on the condition of your teeth and your desired outcome, Dr. Bell may recommend one or a combination of the following procedures:

  • Dental veneers
  • Composite dental fillings
  • Teeth whitening treatments
  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth restorations with dental implants
  • Porcelain crowns

What should I expect from a smile makeover procedure?

First, Dr. Bell consults with you to discuss any concerns about your current smile. He asks questions about what your ideal smile looks like and recommends cosmetic dentistry procedures that best achieve your goals.

To help create a smile that best compliments your unique style and good looks, Dr. Bell may evaluate the following features:

  • Size, color, and alignment of your teeth
  • Skin tone
  • Size and shape of your gum tissue
  • Hair color
  • Facial structure

Dr. Bell thoroughly examines your teeth to create a smile makeover plan that addresses all of your cosmetic or rehabilitative dentistry needs.

Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

Dr. Bell believes all patients deserve the smile of their dreams. That’s why The Bell Dental Group partners with CareCredit to finance your dental work.
