Hello Ocala! Welcome to the Dr. Wayne C. Harper dental blog. Let’s talk about smile transformations. Some Ocala patients wonder if the term is synonymous with general 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 brilliant smile.
Generally, however, a complete smile transformation combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile metamorphosis. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.
For example, a cosmetic dental smile makeover could involve crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
I am Dr. Wayne Harper. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Ocala, Florida since 1985. Performing successful smile redesigns 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 awesome results and sets our practice apart.
