What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is the marriage of art and dentistry! A great smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are customized to suit the specific dental conditions of the patient. These procedures include dental implant placement, dental bonding and placement of porcelain crowns and veneers. The treatment aims to improve the appearance of one’s smile while creating a healthy oral condition. This process provides dramatic results, which is why it is often called an “extreme makeover” in cosmetic dentistry practice.
The dental procedures included in a smile makeover vary for each patient. The most common ones are dental implants, porcelain zirconia crowns, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and teeth whitening. Our dentist will identify the appropriate procedures for you after evaluating your dental condition and performing a thorough dental examination using all diagnostic images that may be needed. Dr. Solomon believes every smile should fit the overall patient face structure and bodily stature. Dr. Solomon artistically crafts each individual smile makeover to fit that patient’s face and life.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
Anyone who is concerned about the undesirable appearance of their teeth can consider a smile makeover in Los Angeles. There are various conditions that could make an individual eligible for a dental makeover, such as discolored teeth, misaligned teeth or missing teeth.
When do I need a smile makeover?
Before undergoing the procedure, Dr. Solomon will evaluate several attributes in your teeth and smile to know if the treatment is right for you. One of the factors that he will consider is the proportions of teeth. Proportionate and straight teeth tend to promote a youthful appearance. Another is the smile line, which is an imaginary line that goes along the edges of one’s upper teeth. Ideally, this should conform to the curve of your lower lip when you smile. Other factors to be considered are tooth characterizations and texture. Dr. Solomon is very conservative and will only do treatment that is absolutely necessary. Patients with teeth that are already compromised due to decay or worn out past dental restorations are often great candidates for smile makeovers.
Smile Makeover Procedure
The Lip Flip is a lip enhancement procedure that uses small doses of a neuromodulator like Botox to relax and “flip” the upper lip outward, improving the volume and symmetry of a person’s lips. While Botox is the most popular form of neuromodulator, we also offer Xeomin, Dysport, and other products that will provide comparable results.
The Botox Lip Flip has increased in popularity over the past few years, being touted as a cheaper, more subtle alternative to lip fillers.
The First step is a detailed and thorough dental examination and treatment plan. At this visit, we may take a CBCTSCAN, panoramic xray, digital xrays and various other images. Dr. Solomon will review all of his findings and create a detailed step by step treatment plan which will be presented to the patient in person. Our staff can answer all of your questions and make sure you are fully aware of the steps involved.
Once you have been treated, it is imperative to keep up with routine dental checkups and cleanings. All patients are expected to practice proper oral hygiene as the results of smile makeovers require regular maintenance. Porcelain veneers do not generally stain but still need to be routinely and professionally cleaned at the dental office. In certain cases, if we have not restored all of the teeth, the original dentition may require additional teeth whitening sessions to maintain the brightness of your teeth. Porcelain crowns and veneers Dental crowns may typically be replaced after 10 to 15 years but all cases vary. It is important to discuss this concern further with Dr. Solomon during your consultation with him.
Depending on the number of teeth restored, recovery differs for each patient. Generally, patients with even the most complicated cases can resume normal daily functions the day after treatment. Dr. Sid Solomon ensures that patients are very comfortable at all times during these procedures and during recovery as well. Dr. Sid Solomon prides himself on providing compassionate care to each patient and always checks on the patients that evening and is readily available to answer any questions or concerns. Changing a patient’s smile for the better is a task Dr. Solomon takes very seriously and one that he sees all the way through to beyond recovery.

During the initial consultation and dental examination, Dr. Solomon will provide the optimal treatment plan option for each case.
