What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is simply a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments that are used to transform a smile. Patients have the option of choosing just one treatment or a mixture of treatments for their ideal smile makeover.

Can I afford a smile makeover?

While the cost varies by patient and depends on the type and scope of treatment, a smile makeover is more affordable than you might expect. After your initial consultation, Dr. Spitz will create your individualized treatment plan along with a cost estimate. Smileboston accepts dental insurance and offers flexible financing solutions including interest-free payment plans.

What can be done for a chipped tooth?

If you have a chipped tooth, there are two solutions offered at Smileboston; dental bonding and porcelain veneers. In dental bonding, a resin material is placed on the tooth and then sculpted into the desired shape. Once the resin is hardened, it is polished to match the fixed tooth or teeth. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are more costly but they can last up to 10 years or more. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over and adhered to the chipped tooth to conceal the flaw.

I am missing a few teeth, is there a tooth replacement solution for me?

Absolutely. If you feel that dentures aren’t for you, there is another option that is very popular – dental implants. An implant is made from a lightweight titanium screw that takes the place of the roots of the teeth onto which a crown (single tooth) or bridge (multiple connected teeth) is secured. Dental implants benefit anyone who wants to replace missing or damaged teeth. Whether you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can help give the smile you have always wanted. Dental implants with a restoration (crown, bridge or denture) are the closest thing to your natural teeth and are designed to last a lifetime with proper and conscientious care.

My teeth are crooked, but I don’t want braces. Can you help?

Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry offers the popular Invisalign treatment to straighten teeth both discreetly and effectively! The Invisalign process consists of the patient wearing a series of clear, smooth, and comfortable BPA-free plastic aligners that shift the position of the teeth over the course of a few months to a year. An added bonus is the ability to remove the aligners for eating, drinking, flossing, brushing. In some cases, however, traditional braces or porcelain veneers might be the quickest route to straight teeth.
