This post from Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City is about smile makeovers. Some patients wonder if the term is synonymous with cosmetic dentistry.
Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a sensational smile.
Generally, however, a complete smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.
For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, porcelain veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, dental implants for a missing tooth, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
