Would you like to feel more confident about your smile? A smile makeover may be the solution you are looking for. A smile makeover is the process of improving your smile or the appearance of your teeth with one or a combination of cosmetic dental procedures. At Anacapa Dental Art Institute in Oxnard near Camarillo, our qualified and experienced cosmetic dentists offer several different dental options to give you the smile you want. Whether you need teeth whitening, veneers, or help with missing teeth, there are numerous ways you can get a terrific smile.

Who is a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

In general, patients with optimal oral health are good candidates for a smile makeover. This means that any active tooth decay or gum disease must be treated before undergoing cosmetic dentistry to complete a smile makeover. The purpose for this is to prevent having to redo treatment later on.

For example, placing veneers over teeth when gum disease is present would mean the results would not last and would not look as good. This is why we assess the state of your oral health during your consultation for a smile makeover before proceeding with any treatments.

Here are some important questions you should ask when searching for the right cosmetic dentist to guide you on your smile makeover journey.

#1 Does Your Dentist Have the Experience and Training For Smile Makeovers?

Don’t be afraid to ask about your Oxnard cosmetic dentist’s clinical expertise and education in smile makeovers because it matters tremendously. One of the reasons why Dr. Jivraj is so popular is because of her advanced clinical training, education, and experience. He is a top dental educator and teaches and mentors other dentists across the country in cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers.

#2 What Can a Smile Makeover Fix?

A smile makeover can correct just about any concern that you may have with your teeth.

Common examples included teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Missing
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Short
  • Uneven
  • Twisted
  • Decayed
  • Damaged in other ways

#3 Are They Up-To-Date with Using the Latest Materials?

Over the past few years newer, more durable and more natural looking materials have been introduced into dentistry. Not every dentist is comfortable with using these materials or knows how to use them to the best advantage. With his in-depth knowledge of cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Jivraj knows precisely how and when to utilize these materials to create a more aesthetically beautiful smile while providing longer-lasting treatment outcomes.

#4 How Long Before Results Are Visible?

It is equally important to have a clear picture of what to expect once treatment starts. Patients should discuss how long each treatment takes, and how long it takes to see results.

For example, teeth whitening can produce dramatic results after a single treatment, while braces can take up to two years to correct alignment issues.

#5 Patient Reviews and Before After Photo Proof

For patients in Oxnard who are considering a smile makeover, seeing actual treatment results is very helpful. Don’t be afraid to ask to see before and after photos. An experienced and qualified cosmetic dentist, like those at Anacapa Dental Art Institute, Oxnard, will have an extensive photo gallery on their professional website along with patient reviews. You can see their results for yourself and get an idea of what kinds of cosmetic procedures you may be interested in discussing at your consultation.
