Smile Makeover NYC
Sometimes, one cosmetic dental procedure is not enough. A smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic dental procedures together in order to achieve that perfect smile. A smile makeover is not a one-size-fits-all solution, or a specific procedure. It is custom tailored to every patient’s individual needs and desires. We take into consideration many variables when deciding on what procedures to include in a smile makeover. The results of a smile makeover can be dramatic. A smile makeover can give anyone that perfect Hollywood smile. We love doing smile makeovers as they let us express our artistic side and achieve incredible results.
Am I a candidate for a smile makeover?
Virtually anyone is a candidate for smile makeover. A smile makeover is indicated for anyone that wants to improve the appearance of their smile for any reason. If you are dissatisfied with any one aspect, or many aspects of your teeth, smile or appearance, then you are good candidate for a smile makeover.
A smile makeover can be an excellent alternative to plastic surgery. It is amazing how a smile makeover can really improve your overall appearance, and reverse the signs of aging. Throughout the years, we have had so many patients express that their cosmetic dentistry has truly been a life changing event, and that by looking better, they also feel better. Patients often express so much gratitude and tell us that by improving their smile, it has increased their confidence and self-esteem. A smile makeover can give you the look that you have always wanted, or restore the look you had when you were younger.
At Sachar Dental NYC, we take into consideration that every face is unique when deciding on which cosmetic dental procedures to include in your smile makeover. In general, cosmetic dentistry is an art form, and a smile makeover combines many of the cosmetic dental procedure alternatives that we have. With our extensive experience and training, we design a plan for your smile makeover taking into account your overall appearance, your height and build, the shape of your face, and the existing appearance of your natural mouth and tooth structure.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a general term used to describe any number of cosmetic dental procedures that are combined together, in order to achieve the goal of an improved looking smile. This goal is unique to each patient. Some patients come in knowing exactly how they would like to look, and other patients ask for our expert opinion, and most end up with a combination of these two things. With multiple cosmetic dental procedures, we are able to address any number of concerns that one has with their smile.
A common misconception is that all dental problems can be solved by applying porcelain veneers to the teeth to hide, or mask the problems that patients are concerned with. In reality, choosing which procedures to perform during your smile makeover is truly an art. The expert cosmetic dentists at Sachar Dental NYC are able to visualize the end result of your smile makeover before it begins. This allows them to choose what combination of cosmetic dental procedures would best suit your unique circumstances.
The first thing that we will do is listen to our patients concerns about what they are dissatisfied with, and what there would like to change. This is an individual and unique situation for every patient.
What are the benefits of a smile makeover?
A smile makeover can have many benefits, both emotional and physical. A smile makeover can reverse the signs of aging, and improve your overall appearance. We have many patients that express their gratitude that they look and feel younger and better, and have significantly increased self-confidence after their smile makeover. It is amazing how one’s self-esteem can be improved through a smile makeover.
Besides the emotional benefits of a smile makeover, there are also many physical benefits. Prior to addressing any cosmetic concerns, the first thing that we do is to eliminate any dental pathologies that may exist. Every patient gets a thorough clinical examination and x-rays prior to the performance of any cosmetic procedures to ensure that their dental health is optimized first.

What is the difference between a “smile makeover” and a “full mouth reconstruction”?
The terms “smile makeover” and “full mouth reconstruction” are both very vague. The difference in using these two terms when discussing dentistry, is that they depend on different situations and different goals. A smile makeover addresses cosmetic concerns, while a full mouth reconstruction may be medically necessary to address dental pathologies of the teeth, mouth or gums. In a full mouth reconstruction, we also address cosmetic concerns while we solve your dental pathologies. Both a smile makeover and a full mouth reconstruction result in an improved appearance and function of the teeth.
How long does a smile makeover take?
Because a smile makeover has so many variables, is not possible to estimate the exact time. A smile makeover can be done in one visit, or take many months. It depends on what procedures are included in your smile makeover. At Sachar Dental NYC, we always allot enough time for every patients’ appointments so that they never feel rushed. We always work with our patients until they are completely satisfied and happy with the results.

What are the different procedures that may be included during a smile makeover?
What are the steps of the smile makeover?
The first step in a smile makeover is your initial cosmetic consultation. During our initial visit, we will discuss both the things that you are dissatisfied with, and your desired goals. We then start your “cosmetic workup”. This includes complete photographs of your teeth, smile, face and profile. We take a mold of your teeth so that we can study them in three dimensions when planning our procedures. We take a full set of x-rays in order to evaluate your tooth structure and rule-out any pathologies.
At Sachar Dental NYC, we combined both a scientific and artistic approach when designing a smile makeover. Once we have a mold of your teeth, and photographs, we thoroughly evaluate your existing structures and anatomy in order to plan for your new smile. We then use our training, expertise and experience to visualize the smile that we want to create. We will then take the mold of your teeth, and using wax, we create a three-dimensional model of the smile that we desire. Once this is done, we figure out which cosmetic procedures will be needed in order to achieve this goal. When you come in for your next visit, we will show you this model, and discuss with you the procedures that we recommend in order to achieve that perfect smile.
