Expressing ourselves authentically is easier when we are confident in our appearance. If you have concerns about the brightness or uniformity of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry offers a wide range of treatments to improve your smile.
No two smile makeovers are alike, and each treatment plan contains a detailed combination of cosmetic or restorative services designed to address the unique needs of each patient.
An experienced cosmetic dentist will be able to identify the least invasive procedures that will combine to produce the most stunning results possible. That may mean performing just a couple of treatments to create a subtle refinement or a more wide-ranging approach with more comprehensive procedures.
Starting a Smile Makeover
Before you start your smile makeover, you should have a good understanding of what you can accomplish through your treatment plan. Before beginning any cosmetic procedure begins, the dentist will determine whether your oral health needs improving by doing a complete oral exam and taking a detailed health history. If you are a good candidate for a makeover, there are several treatments to consider.
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Crowns and Bridges
*Not all dentists offer BOTOX® in Colorado Springs. This cosmetic service relaxes facial muscles to reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles around eyes and on the forehead. The calming effects of BOTOX® can also ease facial pain and headaches.
Dr. Bowen utilizes FILLERS, to add volume to lips, giving them a fuller appearance, as well as other areas in the face which have lost volume.
How Long Does a Full Smile Makeover Take to Finish?
The time it takes to complete your smile makeover fully depends on how much work you are having done. A combination of teeth whitening and veneers can take as little as three visits in less than a month. Adding crowns can sometimes be dome simultaneously, but may require an additional appointment. Complex cases that involve implants or often entail a healing time of several weeks or more.
When straightening teeth, depending on your case, it may take as little as six months to as much as a year or more.
