If you desire a better-looking smile, then you have come to the right place! At Triangle Periodontics, we often see patients who are dissatisfied with their smile, either from genetics or the results of periodontal disease. Thankfully, advancements in dentistry allow us to utilize technology and materials to construct a beautiful smile that makes you feel proud.

We always like to begin with a consultation. This appointment allows periodontist Dr. Otis Washington an opportunity to assess your oral health, and consider your desires for a healthy, beautiful smile. Together, we will devise a customized treatment plan that outlines your smile makeover including the procedures, cost, and timeline.

What can a smile makeover correct?

  • Lost teeth
  • Gummy smile
  • Teeth that appear too short
  • Teeth that have been damaged by periodontal disease
  • Gum recession

What treatments take place during a smile makeover?

Each smile makeover is designed to fit the individual needs of each patient. With that being said, we would like to share with you some of the most common cosmetic procedures that we perform at Triangle Periodontics.

  • Dental implants
  • Mini implants
  • Implant dentures

If years of neglect or gum disease have left your smile less than desirable, Dr. Washington and his team of professionals at Triangle Periodontics can rebuild your smile with a customized smile makeover.

More than just looks

When it comes to a beautiful smile, looks are not the only concern. Of course, we want your smile to look amazing, but it also should be healthy. The two go hand-in-hand; a beautiful smile tends to be healthier, and a healthy smile tends to look beautiful. With that being said, it is important that you have optimal oral health before we begin a procedure. Otherwise, you run the risk of having to repeat treatments sooner than you would like, which will cost more money in the long run. Also, once your smile makeover is complete, you should stick to a healthy regimen of oral care at home, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Dr. Washington will recommend how often you should visit our office for a dental examination and cleaning or if you require ongoing treatments to combat your periodontal disease. These efforts will not only ensure your mouth remains healthy, but will prolong your smile makeover results.

How long does a smile makeover take?

Each smile makeover is customized for every patient. This means that we may be able to be complete your smile makeover within a couple of visits to our office. However, it may take several months for other individuals. The length of time will depend entirely on which procedures you are undergoing for your smile makeover. Be sure to discuss with Dr. Washington any concerns you may have about the timeline so that we can consider that factor when designing your smile makeover. However, if you have an important event in the near future, come and see us as soon as you can so we can get started on your dream smile today!

How much does a smile makeover cost?

Cost also depends on which procedures you choose. We will be sure to discuss the cost of your smile makeover with you during your consultation before any work has been done. You can pay for your treatments as they occur or there is also the option of financing. If finances are a concern for you, we offer interest-free financing that allows you to make low monthly payments – for those who qualify. If you would like more information about our payment options or to take advantage of the special financing, please contact our office to speak with our business staff.

Also, keep in mind that routine dental visits are important for your oral health, and for the longevity of your smile makeover. If you battle periodontal disease, you must understand that routine dental cleanings are vital to your health. Periodontal disease can be kept at bay as long as you maintain good oral hygiene at home, and visit our office routinely for dental cleanings. Be sure to keep this in mind, as this may be an ongoing maintenance cost for you whether or not you undergo a smile makeover.
