What is a Smile Makeover?
During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that made your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at Weller Dental is a custom treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the look of your teeth — and your general oral health. A smile makeover might consist of teeth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), porcelain veneers, re-alignment of your teeth, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include restorative procedures such as bridges or crowns to correct missing teeth. If you want to know more about refreshing your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with dentist Dr. Jeffrey Weller at his office in Chicago or Hinsdale, IL to receive your customized smile makeover plan.

"A big Thank You to the Weller Dental team! I have had numerous dental issues all my adult life, and several bad experiences with dentists. I was referred to Dr. Weller when my previous dentist passed away. It's always a stressful and shame inducing experience for me to open my mouth in a new dental office. For the past three years now, Dr. Weller and his staff have made me feel welcome, and most importantly: comfortable. They immediately went to work on a comprehensive treatment plan for me that addressed my oral health, as well as my cosmetic concerns. Dr. Weller is a skilled dentist, and gets the job done quickly, efficiently, and without any discomfort. Because I have full confidence in Dr. Weller, I just had him restore my smile with veneers and crowns. This takes a lot of skill and artistry. I can't believe what I see in the mirror now! Again, I can't thank Dr. Weller, and his entire staff enough for guiding me through this journey, and I recommend them to anyone in search of quality dental care."- R.F. / Google / Feb 10, 2022
Am I a Candidate?
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic procedures. Dr. Weller will personalize your smile makeover program to meet your goals and concerns, but it might contain teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that could be in your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be suggested to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Weller Dental, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your other teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Weller will have to make certain your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.
What Can I Expect?
Each smile makeover is personalized, so Dr. Weller will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. He can work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, although other sedation methods may be suggested if you need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Weller along with his team will be happy to help you feel more comfortable and answer any of your questions.
What is the Follow Up?
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth by maintaining a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with home maintenance, you need to attend dental examinations and cleanings at Weller Dental so that Dr. Weller can check your progress. With proper care, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh the appearance of your smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Weller at your visits.
Can I Use my Insurance?
In your initial consultation, Dr. Weller can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. A member of our financial team can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we offer at our practice, like low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments included in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance plans, although some restorations could be partly insured. We will talk to your insurance company to ascertain your specific coverage and personal expenses.
