Restore Confidence in Your Smile with a Customized Smile Makeover
Oral health issues or cosmetic concerns can make you feel self-conscious when speaking to others or posing for pictures. It may even reduce your confidence in social, professional, or romantic settings.
At Aesthetic Oral Arts in New Hartford, NY, Dr. Timothy Pfister knows how a smile makeover can dramatically improve a patient’s well-being and quality of life. He and his team can help you address your unique concerns and meet your desired goals by combining various cosmetic and restorative procedures in a cohesive, customized treatment plan. We also offer sedation dentistry and various financing options to help patients with dental anxiety or budget constraints access the treatment they need.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is not a procedure itself. It is a combination of general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures that are designed to improve the function, health, comfort, and appearance of your smile. Because every smile is different, the treatment process, cost, and timeline of every smile makeover will also be different from patient to patient. While some smile makeovers can be completed in one or two appointments, others can span several months.
Are You a Good Candidate?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan designed to address the aesthetic and functional concerns of your smile from top to bottom. Simply put, you are a good candidate if you have multiple concerns including:
- Gum disease or gum recession
- Excess gum tissue
- Missing teeth
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Unevenly sized or shaped teeth
- Yellow or discolored teeth
- Severely decayed or broken teeth
- Mild to moderate tooth decay
A smile makeover is a great option for virtually anyone who wants to improve the form and function of their smile.
We have helped many patients achieve healthier and better-looking smiles with customized smile makeovers. Following treatment, you can enjoy a renewed pride in your smile and improved self-esteem.
Popular Treatment Options
During your smile makeover consultation, Dr. Pfister will ask you to point out areas of your smile that make you unhappy. Based on your concerns, budget, and ultimate goals, Dr. Pfister can create a treatment plan that includes procedures such as:
- Laser gum surgery
- Periodontal treatment
- Dental implants
- TMJ treatment including occlusal bite analysis
- Porcelain veneers or LUMINEERS®
- Teeth whitening
- Dental crowns
Porcelain crowns can address several cosmetic and health concerns at once.
Your treatment process will depend on which procedures are included in your smile makeover, as well as the current condition of your smile. If you need treatments such as Invisalign or dental implants, your treatment timeline will span several months.
Meanwhile, if you have tooth decay, gum disease, or badly damaged teeth, Dr. Pfister can typically address these issues in a single treatment. Thanks to our in-office CEREC® unit, we can deliver lifelike same-day dental crowns to improve the strength and integrity of broken teeth.
Once your restorative treatment is complete, we will enhance the look of your smile with cosmetic dentistry treatments. This ensures that your results not only feel great but look stunning.
Investing in Your Confidence & Health
The cost of a smile makeover will vary from patient to patient. If your treatment plan includes restorative procedures such as dental crowns that are medically necessary to improve your oral health, they might be fully or partially covered by your insurance. Our practice accepts various insurance plans for your convenience.
To help with out-of-pocket costs, we also accept several financing options including CareCredit®, Wells Fargo, and health improvement loans from two local banks. Our team can help you find a financing option that works for your budget.
