A smile makeover is a term we use when performing more than one or two cosmetic dentistry procedures to enhance your smile. At the dental practice of cosmetic dentist Dr. James B. Polley, while we recognize the inherent beauty in our patients, we know there are ways to correct flaws that detract from the loveliness of your smile.

A smile makeover with our Las Vegas cosmetic dentist may entail multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures over several weeks or months. Or, a smile makeover may be performed in as few as two or three visits. One of the most exciting aspects of having a smile makeover is that it’s custom-designed to achieve your smile goals. Your smile makeover will be different from anyone else because your smile goals will differ.

For instance, some of our patients simply want whiter, brighter teeth. Others have a few crooked teeth that need straightening. Some patients may have a chip or crack in one or more teeth. Many smile makeover patients begin with teeth straightening by Invisalign®, while others may require tooth extraction, dental implants, or dentures to perfect their smile. Regardless of the varied treatment plans, the result is always the same: The stunning smile you’ve always wanted.

The Smile Makeover Process

Before beginning any smile transformation with a smile makeover, our dentist comprehensively evaluates your mouth, teeth, and gums to ensure your oral health is good enough to begin cosmetic dentistry procedures.

We will gather your medical history, take x-rays, and possibly perform teeth cleaning. Finally, our cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or bite problems. Any of these issues would require attention before beginning your smile makeover.

Advanced Dental Technology for Smile Makeovers

We have the most advanced dental technology available today to ensure your restorative smile enhancement is performed using state-of-the-art dental lasers and equipment.

You’ll notice that each room in our dental practice is equipped with chairside monitors so you can see what occurs at certain times during your treatment. We use digital X-rays, digital imaging, and digital photos to provide the clearest, most accurate images of your mouth, teeth, and gums.

We are thrilled to use Orthophos S 3D CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to take 3D images of your teeth, bones, and other structures in amazing detail and resolution. CBCT technology uses less radiation than regular medical CT scanners, which is excellent news for all our patients. Its open design also appeals to our patients who may be uncomfortable in more traditional scanners where they feel claustrophobic.

With Dr. Polley and his team using the best technology on the market, your cosmetic dental restoration will be a huge success. Your smile makeover will enhance your life in many ways, and while others may notice something different about you, they won’t know that you had a smile makeover unless you tell them.
