Smile Makeover
Oregon City

Gorgeous woman showing off her wonderful teeth with a smile.A captivating smile is a powerful asset, enhancing confidence and leaving a lasting impression. But if a patient is experiencing damaged or missing teeth, dental work is needed to recover one's smile. Smile makeovers are a comprehensive approach to transforming smiles, encompassing various cosmetic dental procedures tailored to individual needs.

The OC Smiles Family Dental keeps abreast of the latest cutting-edge advancements in dental technology, using tested and approved procedures to help you get the look you deserve. We use dental veneers, gum contouring, dental implants, and orthodontic treatment during smile makeovers, to name a few of our methods.

Smile Analysis

A successful smile makeover begins with a thorough smile analysis, which involves a comprehensive examination of various factors.

First, we analyze the patient's facial features, including the shape of the face, lips, and eyes, to determine the most harmonious and aesthetically pleasing smile design. We also evaluate the proportions of the teeth in relation to each other and the face. Achieving balance and symmetry contributes to a natural-looking and attractive smile.

Assessing the natural color and shade of the teeth helps guide decisions regarding tooth color selection during the makeover process. The shape and contour of the gums significantly impact the overall appearance of the smile. Toward that end, we may need to consider adjustments to gum lines for optimal aesthetics.

Understanding these elements allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with the patient's unique facial features and desired outcomes.

Comprehensive Treatment Plan

A comprehensive treatment plan serves as the roadmap for a smile makeover. This plan considers the individual's goals, budget, and timeline, incorporating various cosmetic dentistry procedures to address specific concerns. A well-designed comprehensive treatment plan ensures that each aspect of the smile is addressed, resulting in a cohesive and harmonious transformation.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

A treatment plan may include a wide array of cosmetic dental procedures to help you get the look you want.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular and non-invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to brighten the natural color of teeth, effectively removing stains and discoloration.

We offer in-house professional teeth whitening services, but over-the-counter whitening products are also available. A professional teeth whitening conducted by a dental specialist offers superior and immediate results with customized treatment plans. At-home options involve custom trays and whitening agents, providing a gradual yet effective improvement.

The longevity of results depends on factors such as lifestyle choices, oral hygiene practices, and follow-up maintenance. Avoiding staining substances like coffee and tobacco also prolongs whitening effects.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the front surface of teeth to address various cosmetic issues. They are commonly made of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers offer durability, stain resistance, and a natural appearance.

Veneers can correct imperfections such as discoloration, chips, gaps, and misalignments, providing a versatile solution for smile enhancement. The application of veneers typically involves minimal tooth reduction, preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment plays a crucial role in a smile makeover, addressing misalignments and achieving optimal tooth positioning. Orthodontic treatment may entail treatments such as clear aligners. Aligners offer a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces, gradually straightening teeth without the use of metal wires or brackets.

Nevertheless, traditional braces remain a reliable option for more complex orthodontic cases, providing effective tooth alignment through brackets and wires. The duration of orthodontic treatment varies based on individual needs and the chosen method. Advances in orthodontics often contribute to shorter treatment times.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent and natural-looking solution for individuals with missing teeth. Dental implants undergo osseointegration, fusing with the jawbone to create a stable foundation for prosthetic teeth.

Implants can replace single or multiple missing teeth and even support full arches of prosthetic teeth, offering a comprehensive tooth replacement solution. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for decades.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, involves the modification of the gum line to achieve optimal aesthetics. Adjustments to the gum line can enhance the overall symmetry and balance of the smile, particularly in cases of uneven or excessive gum tissue.

This form of treatment uses minimally invasive techniques such as laser technology, promoting precision and minimizing discomfort. Healing is typically faster compared to traditional methods. Achieving harmony between the teeth and gums ensures a visually pleasing and proportionate smile.

Digital Smile Design (DSD)

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a cutting-edge approach that combines artistry with technology to visualize and plan smile makeovers. Using digital tools and software, dentists can create digital simulations of the expected treatment outcomes, providing patients with a preview of their potential new smiles.

DSD facilitates communication between dentists and patients, allowing for a collaborative approach in designing the ideal smile. By incorporating DSD, dentists can tailor treatment plans to address each patient's unique facial features, preferences, and goals. The integration of DSD enhances the precision and predictability of smile makeovers, ensuring that the final results align with the patient's vision.

Tooth Color and Shade Selection

Tooth color and shade selection are critical components of a smile makeover, contributing to the overall natural and aesthetic appearance. Dr. David Kim and Dr. Michael Kim work closely with patients to determine the most suitable tooth color and shade, creating a personalized and visually pleasing smile.

Analyzing the patient's natural tooth color guides the selection of restorative materials, ensuring a seamless blend with existing teeth. We also consider the patient's skin tone and facial features in choosing a tooth color that complements their overall appearance. Modern dental materials offer a range of shades and translucencies, allowing for the customization of restorations to achieve a lifelike and natural look.

Patient Satisfaction

Beyond the physical transformations, a smile makeover has a profound impact on patient satisfaction and overall well-being. A beautiful smile boosts self-esteem and confidence, positively influencing personal and professional interactions.

Many cosmetic dentistry procedures included in smile makeovers contribute to improved oral health. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, and dental implants prevent issues associated with missing teeth.

Personalized treatment plans cater to individual goals and preferences, ensuring that each smile makeover is a unique reflection of the patient. The lasting results of a smile makeover contribute to sustained patient satisfaction, providing individuals with a smile they can proudly showcase for years to come.
