not all smile makeovers are created equal

Welcome to the Wetaskiwin Family Dental dental blog. Let’s talk about smile makeovers. Some Wetaskiwin patients wonder if the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Is 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 a few cosmetic problems and result in a remarkable smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile transformation combines several carefully chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. 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, a tooth-coloured filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

I am Dr. Tim Mahoney. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentist in Wetaskiwin, Alberta since 1983. Performing successful smile transformations 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, colouring, 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.
