Few are born with a “perfect smile”!
Many patients have cosmetic concerns due to teeth that are misaligned, discolored, too large, or have large gaps (diastemas). While many of these concerns are rooted in the aesthetics of the natural smile, they can also be the underlying cause of dental health problems and compromise the results of dental treatments over time. Feeling self-conscious about your smile can also affect self-confidence, social interaction, and even professional accomplishments. Your smile is a big part of you.
Kanning Dental in Lawson and Richmond, MO provides personalized smile makeovers through careful treatment planning and the incorporation of appropriate cosmetic and restorative procedures. A beautiful smile is also functional and healthy, enabling a patient to feel good about how they look as well as enjoy a good quality of life on a daily basis. Smile makeovers are a part of Kanning Dental’s cosmetic dentistry offerings to the public in Lawson and Richmond, MO.
Your dentist will begin your smile makeover with a dental exam and discussion of your concerns, goals, budget, and expectations. Understanding not only what you hope to achieve, but how it can improve your oral health is the foundation of a successful treatment plan.
A smile makeover is a broad term and can sometimes be as simple as replacing old, dark, and unsightly dental fillings with white fillings to boost your smile and provide a natural look. New composite fillings can also strengthen the tooth and prevent any future decay if an old filling has begun to break down and “leak”. Other treatment options can include:
Smile Makeover Process
To begin the process, you will meet with one of our talented dentists to discuss what you would like to change about your smile. Your dentist will do a complete oral exam. They need to know the current state of your oral health and get an up close look at your teeth. The next step it to build a treatment plan. It will be geared towards your goals, budget, and oral health. Since no two patients are alike, your plan will be unique to your needs. The most important thing is for your dentist to ensure you are in good oral health. It is not a good idea to perform cosmetic procedures on unhealthy teeth and gums. The results will not last. Therefore, your treatment plan may include general or restorative dentistry procedures. The ultimate goal is for you to have a healthy and attractive smile that will last for many years.
The team at Kanning Dental will be available to help you at every step along the way. We will file your claim with your dental insurance and give an estimated cost of treatment. Most cosmetic treatments are not covered by insurance however, any treatment you need for health reasons will most likely be covered.
