Smile Makeover

Discover the life-changing power of our revolutionary Smile Makeover Process, where we've mastered the art of crafting stunning, youthful smiles that mimic nature rather than detract from it. Our cutting-edge techniques and meticulous attention to detail set us apart, as we create enhancements that seamlessly blend with your natural beauty, elevating your confidence and appearance to new heights.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover at NYC Smile Design is more than just a cosmetic change; it’s a transformational journey toward achieving the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Tailored to individual needs, it encompasses a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are combined to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your smile while also improving dental function and health. 

By addressing aesthetic concerns and oral health issues, a smile makeover can boost your confidence, improve your overall well-being, and unlock new opportunities in your personal and professional life.

What are the Benefits of a Smile Makeover?

Your personalized smile makeover is designed to address a wide range of dental concerns and to provide you with long-lasting, beautiful, natural-looking, and healthy results. Your smile makeover can address multiple major dental issues as well as more minor concerns. A smile makeover can be done at any age and improve speech, chewing, and overall proper oral function. Undergoing a smile makeover can transform more than just your smile; it can revitalize your overall demeanor and improve your quality of life. 

Another important benefit of a smile makeover is its ability to produce a more youthful facial and dental appearance. As we age, the lower third of our face undergoes significant changes that can impact our overall appearance. Over time, our teeth naturally wear down and shift, leading to a reduction in vertical facial height. This process can cause the lower face to sag and appear sunken, contributing to an aged and tired look.

A smile makeover is just as important to your facial appearance as any other cosmetic procedure, and in some cases, it may be a necessary complement to plastic surgery helping to restore the youthful proportions of your face. Through techniques like dental bonding, veneers, and crowns, we can rebuild the structure of your teeth, effectively lifting and rejuvenating the lower third of your face. By taking the following steps, our cosmetic dentists can also perform a procedure informally known as a “scalpless facelift”.

Digital Smile Design

 Designing smiles digitally is a revolutionary approach that combines the art and science of dentistry with technology. This approach allows us to design and customize your smile on the computer, taking into account your facial aesthetics and personal preferences. This process involves capturing detailed photos and videos of your face and smile from various angles, allowing us to analyze the dynamics of your smile and make precise adjustments. With a digitally designed smile,  you can preview and approve the proposed changes before the actual treatment starts, ensuring that your new smile truly reflects your individuality and enhances your natural beauty. By visualizing your final result before treatment even begins, we can make any necessary adjustments and ensure that we're working towards a smile that perfectly complements your features and meets your desires.

At NYC Smile Design, we believe that technology and personalization go hand in hand to create not just a beautiful smile, but a work of art that resonates with who you are. Our dedication to utilizing the best in dental technology, combined with our personalized care, sets us apart in delivering smile makeovers that are as unique and remarkable as our patients.


3. Planning and Test Drive

After the consultation, we proceed with designing and planning your smile transformation. This is a collaborative effort with our team of specialists and sets the stage for your next appointment. At that appointment, we'll review the next steps together, ensuring that your immediate needs are met with the most effective solutions while also safeguarding your long-term oral health. At NYC Smile Design, we understand that deciding to undergo a smile makeover is a significant decision, and we want you to feel confident and excited about your treatment plan. That's why we offer several ways for you to visualize your potential results before committing to the process.

With digital smile design technology, we offer the option of creating a physical mockup of your final result. This process involves crafting a temporary, removable model of your new smile using a composite resin material placed over your existing teeth. This allows you to see, feel, and experience your potential smile makeover results firsthand, assess how it looks with your facial features, and even test out how it feels when you speak and smile.

By combining advanced digital smile design technology with the physical mockup process, we give you multiple ways to visualize and experience your potential smile makeover results. This comprehensive approach ensures that you feel confident and informed every step of the way and that your final outcome is a true reflection of your unique vision and goals.


4. Your Smile Transformation Begins

As you begin and progress through your smile makeover journey, you'll experience the transformation from design to reality. Each pivotal phase brings to life the meticulously crafted treatment plan, turning your envisioned smile into a tangible reality. Depending on the complexity of your treatment plan, this process may require multiple visits, ensuring that every detail is perfected to deliver the smile you've always desired. 

Once we've finalized your smile design, we use advanced guided preparation devices to transfer this design to your teeth with minimal invasiveness and maximum accuracy. These devices allow us to precisely shape your teeth in preparation for your final restorations, ensuring a seamless fit and optimal aesthetics.

During this temporary phase, we work closely with you to assess your comfort, function, and aesthetics, making any necessary adjustments to perfect your smile design. We also use this time to communicate extensively with our master ceramist, providing detailed instructions and photographs to ensure that your final restorations are crafted to the highest standards of beauty and precision.

5. Maintenance and Aftercare of Your Smile Makeover

At NYC Smile Design, we're committed to providing smile makeover results that are not only beautiful but also long-lasting. With proper care and maintenance, the results of your smile makeover can last for many years, or even a lifetime. The longevity of your results will depend on factors such as the specific treatments you receive, your oral hygiene habits, and your lifestyle.

We believe that the success of your smile makeover extends beyond the initial treatment. To ensure that your results last a lifetime, we provide comprehensive aftercare support and recommend a personalized maintenance plan tailored to your unique needs.
