Is there something about your teeth that makes smiling embarrassing? A beautiful smile communicates confidence, openness, and enthusiasm. If imperfections like yellow or stained teeth, chips, or unattractive gaps are keeping your smile hidden, then you might be sending the wrong message to the world.

A smile makeover in Virginia Beach, performed by Dr. Mary Lewis, doesn’t just fix the biggest problems. By carefully addressing both dental and cosmetic issues, we deliver a smile that demands to be shown off. The confidence provided by our smile makeovers makes it easier for patients to interview for jobs, go on dates, and speak in public.

Smile Makeover Results

At Virginia Beach Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, smile makeover patients experience remarkable transformations. Through a unique combination of cosmetic techniques and procedures custom-tailored to suit the needs of individual patients, smile makeovers do not just provide straighter, whiter smiles – they also enhance confidence and pride in appearance.

During your first appointment at our Virginia Beach offices, a comprehensive treatment plan will be created to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. To prepare for your first appointment, consider what improvements you desire to see in your smile. Come prepared with a list of priorities. Some of our patients even bring pictures of celebrities or public figures whose smiles they admire. These first appointment conversations are essential to building a common understanding of what goals you have for your treatment as well as to build honest expectations for recovery time and results.

What Procedures Are Involved in a Smile Makeover?

At the time of your first appointment, Dr. Lewis will determine what combinations of procedures will achieve the results you desire. Sometimes a single cosmetic procedure is all that is required. However, most smile makeover patients benefit from a combination of our available cosmetic procedures. Some of our most common smile makeover procedures include:

Veneers: Veneers are razor thin pieces of porcelain that are fitted over teeth to correct the appearance of stains, ships, and other imperfections. A veneer may be used on one or more teeth to achieve the desired result.

Whitening: Caramel colored sodas, coffee, wine, smoking, and simply aging all stain and yellow the teeth over time. The number one desired cosmetic procedure is tooth whitening. Through this gentle bleaching, patients achieve brighter, whiter smiles.

Bonding: Bonding uses tooth-colored resin to correct the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth, and may also be used to fill in unwanted small gaps.

Depending on your individual needs, one or more of our cosmetic procedures may be paired with restorative work, to ensure that your smile is as healthy as it is beautiful. A thorough assessment of your teeth and mouth will be undertaken to determine the condition of your oral health and the structure of your jawline, teeth, and mouth. Dr. Lewis works with each patient to bring the desired cosmetic results and the health of the mouth into alignment. Each patient’s needs determine the amount of work needed to develop that perfect smile.  Once a course of treatment is determined, our administrative staff is happy to assist in scheduling and financing.
