How a Smile Makeover Can Change Your Life

added on: June 21, 2022

Have you been hiding your smile from others because you are embarrassed about the condition of your teeth? At Ponderosa Dental Center in Bend, OR, we can help you feel more confident, so you can smile openly, laugh without inhibitions, and enjoy life to the fullest! Learn how a Smile Makeover from Dr. Prentice can change your life.

What is a Smile Makeover?

We use advanced cosmetic dentistry to change the appearance of your teeth and mouth. Whatever your mouth needs to look amazing, we have the skills and tools to make it happen. Check out some of the great ways we can change and enhance smiles:

  • Tooth contouring. We smooth out irregularities to create a consistent, pleasing appearance.
  • Gum contouring. Puffy, overgrown gums can be reshaped, so your teeth are the main focus of your smile.
  • Composite dental bonding. Unattractive chips or cracks are fixed with durable, tooth-colored bonding.
  • Dental crowns. Some teeth are so worn and damaged that you can’t even use them properly anymore. We repair and strengthen this kind of tooth by placing a strong and attractive dental crown over it.
  • Veneers. Stained, worn-down, or misshaped teeth can be hidden by a thin, durable porcelain shell called a veneer. The veneer looks just like your natural teeth, except better!
  • Teeth whitening. Get a long-lasting white smile with our KöR Deep Bleaching whitening treatments. This treatment is fast, effective, and safe.

Your Smile Makeover could consist of one of the above treatments or a combination of them. We personalize each makeover to suit your exact needs.

Why Get a Smile Makeover?

The benefits of a Smile Makeover are huge. We are serious when we say it can change your life. Consider this:

  • Smiling more lowers your heart rate and blood pressure. 
  • You’ll feel less depressed.
  • Your confidence will improve because you know how great your teeth look when you smile.
  • Smiling sets off happy, energy-filled hormones such as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin.
  • Your whole body benefits from your new-found happiness.
  • Even your immune system improves!
  • You will love how much younger a happy, attractive smile makes you look.

What is keeping you back from smiling and enjoying life more? If you are self-conscious about your appearance, we can help. Your smile is like a big sign that says, “Look here!” A beautiful smile makes you look and feel beautiful all over.

Why Choose Ponderosa Dental Center for Your Smile Makeover?

Dr. Joshua Prentice and the entire staff at Ponderosa Dental Center are dedicated to making your life better through dental excellence. Dr. Prentice is qualified and experienced in a wide range of dentistry, including the cosmetic treatments that are used in a Smile Makeover.

You should never feel shame or embarrassment in our office. We are here to help you look and feel your best.

We Make Your Mouth Healthier

As true dental professionals, we would never give you a Smile Makeover that was unhealthy for your teeth or gums. Cosmetic dental procedures are normally meant for healthy mouths. If you have oral health issues, we will first treat those issues. For example, if you have untreated cavities or you have signs of gum disease, we will treat those conditions first. Then, when your mouth is healthy, we can treat your teeth and gums to the makeover they deserve!

Safe, Effective Dental Technology

Need another reason to choose Ponderosa Dental Center in Bend, OR? We use the most advanced and safest dental technology available. Lasers take the place of scalpels and sutures. Lasers allow for precision, and they heal as they go, which means your mouth will look and feel better right away. Our teeth whitening system does not leave teeth with extra sensitivity, like many dental whitening treatments do. When we need to create an image of your teeth, we use digital technology, not messy impressions.

Envision Your New Smile Before We Do Anything

In fact, your Smile Makeover begins with a consultation, during which Dr. Prentice takes a digital impression of your mouth. He then uses 3D technology to create a wearable model of what your new smile could look like when it is finished. You can try this model on during the second appointment and see for yourself how amazing it will look!
