A beautiful smile can make a great impression, which is why board-certified dentists Dr. Ron Bosher and Dr. Tim Nguyen offer smile makeovers for their Plano area patients. A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to dramatically improve the appearance of the smile. Every smile makeover is customized for the patient, but some of the procedures generally included are:
- Dental bonding – repairs minor cosmetic issues, like chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, and tooth shape
- Porcelain veneers – a thin, shell that is bonded to the visible teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking smile
- Teeth whitening – customized whitening kits from Day White or Kor Whitening that the patient can use at home and in office whitening sessions are offered.
- Tooth-colored fillings – replacing old metal fillings with invisible tooth-colored fillings
Smile Makeover Reviews
"I was interested in getting some veneers so I went to go see Dr. Tim Nguyen for a consultation after much research. During my consultation, Dr. Nguyen was very informative and knowledgeable in discussing my options. I decided to proceed forward with the procedure. During my follow up visit, Dr. Nguyen showed me how my teeth would look like with models before and after. He actually designed the veneers himself versus sending impressions off to the lab for them to design. I am extremely happy with the results and my new pearly whites! The time & effort he spends with his patients and their cases is a plus! Highly recommend!"- H.N. / Google / Jul 10, 2017
"As I write this, I'm in the process of a smile makeover. I'm one of those people you read about who rarely smiles because of the appearance of my teeth. The crowns I have now (which were done in 2003), look cartoonish and don't look at all like they "belong to me". As much as I wanted to change the appearance of my teeth, I was terrified at the thought of replacing my crowns. I feared being horribly disappointed with the outcome once again. I researched cosmetic dentists for months and finally summoned the courage to call Parker West Dental. From that very first conversation, I knew (beyond a doubt) I had found the right clinic. Everyone I encountered (and I mean EVERYONE) is genuine, professional and incredibly gracious. I know I'm in the very best hands possible and I could not be more excited about the final result of my crowns. I feel so privileged to have found Parker West Dental, and look forward to a very long standing relationship with this outstanding group of professionals."- J.K. / Demandforce / Jul 30, 2017

What to Expect
During the consultation, the dentist will talk to the patient about their concerns, needs, and cosmetic goals before creating a unique smile makeover plan. The dentist will help the patient schedule their appointments and go over any instructions the patient may need before their treatment.
The cost of a smile makeover will vary depending on what procedures are part of the treatment. Since a smile makeover typically only includes cosmetic procedures, it is not covered by dental insurance. During the consultation, patients will get a better estimate of their costs and payment options. Ranging from 600- 1800 per tooth

Adding Restorative Procedures?
While a smile makeover typically focuses on the appearance of the teeth, some dental restorations may be needed to replace missing or damaged teeth. Patients may need a crown (single tooth), bridge, or dentures that are implanted or bonded. The dentist will talk to each patient about what procedures are recommended to best improve your smile.
Depending on the procedures chosen and the number of procedures performed during one appointment, the dentist may give the patient options for sedation. Sedation options can also be used for patients who have anxiety or a strong gag reflex to make their treatment more comfortable.
After the smile makeover is complete, it is important that the patient establish and follow a home oral care routine that includes daily brushing and flossing. Patients should also continue to come in at least twice a year for a professional dental cleaning, which will help the health and appearance of the teeth. After a few years, patients may want to touch up their teeth whitening to remove any stains that have developed since the smile makeover.
