Cosmetic dentistry usually involves a single corrective procedure. A “smile makeover” might include 2-6 procedures involving multiple teeth. It might also start incorporating teeth straightening measures like Invisalign and other surgeries such as root canals. In short, it’s a holistic approach to treating a mouth that has suffered from extensive damage or trauma.
Every smile makeover case requires an extensive, thorough consultation to determine the scope of work. Smile makeovers may also require many months, even years, of treatment. However, a smile makeover is basically cosmetic dentistry—you can think of it as cosmetic dentistry taken to the next level.
