Smile Makeover Q & A

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is more than just a cosmetic dental treatment. Your smile makeover is a personalized comprehensive improvement plan as unique as you are. It includes multiple treatments catered to your specific needs and goals, and strategic planning to help you feel confident in the process. 

At Temecula Ridge Dentistry, Dr. Murphy evaluates your facial contours and the shape and size of your teeth. Using this information, she chooses treatments and designs custom restorations to create natural, stunning results. She educates you on the many available procedures for your smile makeover and makes you an integral part of the decision-making process. You can ask any questions that come up so you understand what to expect with each procedure. Dr. Murphy plans your smile makeover in stages to optimize your healing and recovery.

Which procedures can I get in my smile makeover?

During a consultation, Dr. Murphy reviews the current state of your smile and asks about your goals for treatment. She details your treatment options and explains the results you can realistically achieve. 

Cosmetic and restorative treatments you can add to your smile makeover include:

  • Traditional porcelain veneers
  • Lumineers®
  • Porcelain fillings
  • In-office whitening
  • Take-home whitening trays
  • Invisalign®

Dr. Murphy typically recommends starting your treatment with teeth whitening before moving onto fillings, veneers, and other restorations that she must match to the shade of your teeth. 

What are the possible benefits of getting a smile makeover?

Smile makeovers offer unique benefits. Dr. Murphy can help you identify specific improvements that a smile makeover will provide for your oral health and lifestyle. Possible benefits include:

  • Boost in self-confidence
  • Better facial balance and symmetry
  • Improved first impressions when meeting new people
  • Easier dental hygiene and maintenance

Dr. Murphy has extensive training in cosmetic dentistry and an eye for aesthetics. Additionally, she is a certified provider of Invisalign® and can help you get straighter teeth without the complications and drawbacks of metal braces. 

Is a smile makeover uncomfortable or painful?

Dr. Murphy is known for being very gentle during treatments. If any of the procedures in your smile makeover can cause discomfort, she provides you with local anesthesia to keep your mouth numb and help you feel more at ease.
