Smile Makeover – Millersville, MD

Giving You the Confidence You Deserve

At McCarl Dental Group at Shipley’s Choice, we know what years of wear and tear can do to a person’s smile. Chips, cracks, stains, missing teeth, gaps, and even misalignment can reduce self-esteem and make it difficult to enjoy the finer things in life. This is why we provide a streamlined solution that addresses all of these problems instead of one by one. With a customized smile makeover in Millersville, we can transform a person’s smile more cohesively so that they walk away feeling more confident than ever before. If you would like to learn more about how you can reap the benefits of a smile makeover, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.

How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

While no two cases are the same, a smile makeover consists of various steps that include:

  1. Meeting with a member of our dental team for a scheduled consultation. This will allow us to better understand what you want from treatment. You are also welcome to bring in any photos so that we can discuss different smile aspects you want incorporated.
  2. A thorough examination of your face and mouth, as this will give us a better idea of how to compile your treatment plan with the most effective services. Some may include veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign, all-ceramic restorations, and other cosmetic or restorative solutions.
  3. Sitting down with our cosmetic dentist to go over your treatment plan as well as its cost so that you know what to expect and how to start budgeting for your care.

The Benefits of Getting a Smile Makeover

You will find that by choosing to receive a smile makeover, you get the benefits of:

  • Enjoying a healthier, more beautiful smile that allows you to feel more confident in your appearance.
  • No longer being plagued by the imperfections you see in the mirror each day.
  • A more youthful look that can take years off your face.
  • Better oral health because of services that are designed to fix cracked, chipped teeth as well as fill in gaps and realign pearly whites.
  • A more fully functional smile because of the all-ceramic restorations and teeth straightening treatment that allow teeth to be used normally and comfortably.

Understanding the Cost of a Smile Makeover

Our team can't determine the cost of a smile makeover without seeing you for a consultation. This step is essential, as it will give us a clearer understanding of what you want, what needs to be fixed, and which services are best to achieve your desired goals. Once we’ve examined your smile, we’ll create a cost estimate for you to review.

While you might assume that this type of treatment is too costly to pursue, our team will go over our available payment options so that your out-of-pocket expenses remain low. We do offer CareCredit financing that makes it easy to pay off your treatment over time through manageable monthly installments.

Smile Makeover FAQs

How many visits can you expect for a smile makeover?

It depends. When meeting with one of our cosmetic dentists in Millersville, you can expect that we will go over the problem areas as well as discuss your smile goals. Based on your preferences and our recommendations, we will build a plan that ensures successful results.

It’s not uncommon for a smile makeover to have at least three appointments; however, it can be more if you and your dentist decide that is best. Some of the possible options for treatment include veneers, all-ceramic dental restorations, teeth whitening, and Invisalign.

Is a smile makeover safe?

Yes, a smile makeover is a safe procedure when it is completed by a licensed and experienced cosmetic dentist. You’ll want to make sure that you do your research before selecting a dentist you can trust, but our team at McCarl Dental Group at Shipley’s Choice possesses the training, knowledge, and experience to provide an array of cosmetic services, including smile makeovers. Our artistic eye and attention to detail make it possible for us to perform thorough evaluations and build new smiles to look beautiful and natural every time.

Can a smile makeover align your smile, bite, or jaw?

If you and your dentist decide that tooth or bite alignment is necessary, you can expect Invisalign to be part of your smile makeover. These clear aligners are designed to shift teeth and create a more functional smile, so yes, when incorporated into a plan, a smile makeover can help to realign your smile, bite, or jaw.

But do not be surprised if it is used in combination with another form of treatment, as many patients who seek Invisalign also desire additional cosmetic services that help to brighten their newly aligned smile.

Are smile makeovers expensive?

It’s no secret that smile makeovers can be costly investments, but they’re worth it. When you actually like the way you look, you simply cannot put a price tag on that. Your consultation with a member of our team will allow us to go over the details of your plan and find ways to help you achieve the results you desire without causing a financial crisis.

While it’s true that dental insurance will unlikely cover most cosmetic services, some may be eligible for partial coverage if it is also considered a restorative solution (i.e., all-ceramic dental restoration to fix a damaged tooth). Our team at McCarl Dental Group at Shipley’s Choice will review your benefits and discuss alternative ways to help you save when seeking a smile makeover. Third-party financing through CareCredit is a great way to pay off treatment over time instead of all upfront.
