Smile Makeover

A Smile Makeover, sometimes called a smile reconstruction or rejuvenation, is the individual recreation of each tooth in a mouth. If your teeth are worn down, broken, missing, or if you experience pain in the jaw joint, headaches, back pain, muscle tenderness or clicking or popping of the jaw, then you should consider this procedure, to properly correct problems in both the bite and appearance of your mouth. A Smile Makeover utilizes current technologies to reshape and rebuild one’s teeth, gums and the surrounding areas. One or several procedures may be necessary to obtain the effects desired. The end result is an enhanced appearance that allows you to enjoy the confidence and attractiveness of that smile that you've always desired.

This treatment corrects imperfections in bite position and enhances the appearance of your smile. Anyone with short, worn teeth or those that are chipped and broken throughout the mouth would be an excellent candidate. Combining the science of Neuromuscular Dentistry with the artistry of Cosmetic Dentistry, a Smile Makeover dramatically improves a smile that is functional, comfortable, and beautiful.

Neuromuscular Dentistry measures and determines the optimal position of the jaw. Once determined, the jaw position is corrected with the use of an orthodontic (a virtually invisible appliance that fits over the top of the lower teeth, gently repositioning the jaw) or the application of dental restorations, including porcelain veneers, crowns or onlays. As an added benefit, the restorations are exceptionally attractive and strong, enhancing the smile beautifully.

How is it Done?

Using advanced technology, we measure your jaw's muscle function in both stressed and relaxed positions. If an imbalance is determined, we will decide whether to treat with dental restorations. We will use beautiful porcelain restorations, dental crowns, dental veneers or onlays that can raise or lower the bite to achieve the most comfortable jaw position. With this correction, you experience decreased or eliminated pain and discomfort, and better overall health and function.

Am I a Candidate?

If you answer yes to any of the following statements, you are a viable candidate for a Smile Makeover:

  • I have TMJ problem (temporomandibular joint syndrome)
  • I experience frequent headaches or migraines
  • I have unexplained loose teeth
  • My teeth are worn, chipped or cracked
  • My dental restorations frequently crack, chip or break
  • I have pain or soreness around my jaw joints
  • I have pain in my teeth that seems to move around
  • I have facial, neck, shoulder and/or back pain
  • There are clicking or grating sounds in my jaw joints
  • I have unexplained numbness in my fingers and arms
  • I have unexplained congestion or stuffiness in my ears

Clinical Case Example

The gentleman in the photo below had a constellation of dental problems and issues. His bite had changed over the years as it does with most people as they age. Over the years his bite gets worn down, which makes his teeth shorter which in turn makes his entire face shorter. His lips lose the support from the teeth and your entire face gets impacted from years of wear and grinding.

Then, the reconstruction was done with customized ceramic porcelain crowns and precision porcelain veneers. As can be seen in this dramatic photo, he regained form, function and mostly certainly an aesthetic effect that is dazzling and will endure for years to come.

This major porcelain reconstructive makeover had a dramatic impact. He acquired a great smile, better lip support, correct bite and overwhelmingly increased self confidence.
