Important Smile and Dental Makeover Considerations

Florida: Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach

When considering a full smile makeover—also referred to as a dental makeover or extreme makeover—there are a number of considerations you will need to take into account first.

What are your goals?

Jacksonville, Florida Dental MakeoverWhen planning a full dental makeover, it is important to articulate specifically what you hope to accomplish. Do you want whiter teeth? Are you unhappy with the shape or size of your teeth? Does the alignment need adjustment? Do you have flaws in the surface of your teeth?

You should carefully evaluate exactly what your problems are, and what end result you’d like to see before committing to a full dental makeover plan.

How do you select a dentist for a dental makeover?

It is particularly important when selecting a cosmetic dentist for your smile makeover that you choose one with the variety of skills and tools available to perform the procedures you will require. Not every cosmetic dentist has access to or experience with some of the more recent developments in cosmetic dentistry.

See the page How to choose a cosmetic dentist for more detailed information on selecting the right cosmetic dentist for you.

Is your dentist experienced in neuromuscular dentistry?

One issue that some cosmetic dentists overlook is the effect of structural changes to the mouth on the temporomandibular joint. A poorly planned or executed cosmetic procedure, at worst, can leave your jaw misaligned, a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. This condition can not only affect the function and appearance of your teeth and jaw, but it can cause back and neck pain, migraine headaches, and other physical symptoms as well.

For this reason, it is vital when selecting a cosmetic dentist for your dental makeover that you find one with training and experience diagnosing, preventing and treating TMJ and other neuromuscular issues.
