What happens during a smile makeover?

Your Treatment Experience Will Depend on Your Goals

Every smile makeover treatment plan is different and depends on a variety of factors. At The Smile Center in Virginia Beach, there are typically three phases to smile design.

What to Expect

Planning

First, you will sit down with Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey to discuss your goals and concerns. Then they will examine your smile and design a treatment plan.

Preparation

If you decide to proceed with a smile makeover, your doctor will prepare your teeth for any restorations and perform any preliminary treatments, such as teeth whitening. If you qualify for a same-day restoration with CEREC, you may not need a third appointment.

Placement

A few weeks later, uring your third appointment, your doctor will place any restorations, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings

Longer Treatments

Some options, such as Invisalign® or other orthodontic treatments, can extend the length of your treatment by up to a year or more.

Worried about recovering after your makeover?

Most Smile Makeovers Do Not Require Recovery Time

For the most part, cosmetic procedures have little to no recovery time, so you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. 

There are certain steps you can take to ensure your results stay as brilliant as the day you complete treatmentOur doctors recommend:

  • Brushing twice a day and flossing daily
  • Attending regular exams and cleanings
  • Minimizing dark-colored drinks, such as wine and coffee

Results Will Vary Based on the Treatments You Choose

The effects of your smile makeover will depend entirely on the issues you wish to treat and the procedures you select.

In general, most patients experience a boost in their self-confidence after a smile makeover. When you feel confident about the way you look, you are more likely to smile, which can improve your overall quality of life.

You can learn more about your possible results during a consultation at our Virginia Beach office. Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey can give you a better sense of what to expect based on your cosmetic concerns, budget, and goals.

How much does a smile makeover cost?

We Can Tailor Treatment to Suit Almost Any Budget

One of the benefits of smile makeovers is that they are completely customizable, meaning we can design a treatment plan that suits your specific budget.

If you are not worried about the cost and want dramatic results, we may recommend a more aggressive treatment plan.

However, if you want to save on costs, we can recommend alternatives with smaller price tags or stage treatment to fit your budget.

What factors impact the cost of treatment?

The Number and Type  of Treatments Affect Your Final Cost

Extent of Treatment

Your makeover will be customized to your goals, so the most important consideration in your treatment cost is how dramatic a change you wish to see in your smile. In general, more extensive results require a larger investment.

The Procedures You Choose

Some cosmetic treatments cost more than others. Teeth whitening, for example, is one of the most affordable procedures. In contrast, porcelain veneers are more expensive but provide more dramatic effects.

Sedation Options

In most cases, our doctors can perform cosmetic procedures using only local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. However, we also offer dental sedation if you are nervous or require a particularly involved treatment. Sedation will typically raise the price of your care.

Are there ways to reduce the cost of my smile makeover?

Insurance and Financing  May Help with the Cost of Treatment

Dental Insurance

For the most part, insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures since they are not medically necessary treatments.

However, if an aspect of your makeover has a restorative purpose, you may receive partial coverage from your provider.

We can work with your insurance company to maximize your coverage.

Financing

A variety of third-party financing plans exist to cover the costs of dental procedures that do not fall under your insurance.

We offer a range of flexible financing options at our Virginia Beach office to help our patients achieve their smile goals.

Our team can discuss your options with you during a consultation.
