Hello Staten Island! Welcome to the Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht dental blog. Let’s talk about smile makeovers. Some Staten Island patients wonder if the term is synonymous with cosmetic dentistry.
Are the placement of four porcelain 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 beautiful smile.
Generally, however, a complete smile transformation combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile transformation. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.
For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored fillings replacing old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
I am Dr. Frederick Hecht. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Staten Island, New York since 1976. Performing successful smile makeovers makes my profession extremely fulfilling. Patients who plan to receive a smile makeover should take their time choosing a dentist to perform it. I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs and wishes. During the consultation, I can tell you about my extensive experience and show you before and after pictures of satisfied patients.
When I design a custom smile makeover, I study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves incredible results and sets our practice apart.
