Throughout your life, you may have experienced accidents, dental problems, and other difficulties that have rendered your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at Great Lakes Bay Dental is a personalized treatment plan of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that will tremendously improve the appearance of your teeth and the overall health of your mouth. A smile makeover could include teeth whitening (in-office treatments), dental veneers and crowns, clear aligner orthodontics (such as ClearCorrect), and replacing old metal fillings with composite resin. Your smile makeover could also include dental restorations, like crowns or bridges, to replace a missing tooth or teeth. If you are interested in improving your smile so that it's beautiful and healthy, schedule a consultation with experienced dentist Dr. Daniel Clement at his office in Midland, MI to receive your personalized plan.
A smile makeover can help if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth or if you require several restorative or cosmetic procedures. Dr. Clement will customize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your concerns and goals, but it may consist of teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your enamel. Other cosmetic treatments that might be part of your plan are dental veneers or ClearCorrect orthodontics to improve the shape and length of your teeth and to address gaps between your teeth. Dental restorations (like crowns and bridges) may be needed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Great Lakes Bay Dental, we use custom-made restorations so they blend with your regular teeth for a seamless appearance.
Before you undergo any cosmetic procedures, Dr. Clement will need to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems, like a misaligned bite or gum disease, these concerns will need to be addressed first.
What To Expect
Every smile makeover is customized so Dr. Clement will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, including how many appointments you may need. We will help you plan your appointment, or appointments, to complete each one of the procedures of your smile makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures; however, other sedation choices can be included if you require help relaxing due to significant dental anxieties. Throughout your smile makeover, Dr. Clement and his team will be accessible to answer any questions you may have.
Once your smile makeover is finished, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth with a good home oral care routine (both brushing and flossing every day). In addition to everyday care, you should make appointments for dental exams and cleanings at Great Lakes Bay Dental so Dr. Clement can track your oral health. With appropriate maintenance, the results of your smile makeover should last for many years. Touch-up treatments every few years, like teeth whitening, may help to refresh your results. Veneers and restorations may also need to be repaired or replaced, which can all be discussed with Dr. Clement during your appointments.
At your consultation, Dr. Clement will develop a smile makeover that fits both your needs and your budget. He can estimate the cost of your treatment plan and explain payment methods we accept, including medical financing. The cosmetic procedures in a smile makeover are typically not covered by insurance, but some restorations might be partially covered. A member of our team will contact your insurance provider to determine your precise coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
