How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

Perfect teeth with a smile makeover in Irvine, CaliforniaA smile makeover is a great way to perfect your smile, and our patients often wonder how long their tooth-transformation will take. The length of time until you have a straight, pearly-white smile depends on the current state of your teeth, gums and jawbone.

Smile makeover techniques vary patient to patient because everyone has specific aesthetic goals they’re looking for. Our dentist can help determine how long your smile makeover will take during your initial dental exam at our office in Irvine.

If you have healthy gum tissue and no bone loss, but crooked teeth, Dr. Huefner may suggest Invisalign® clear braces to straighten your teeth. This could take anywhere from 6 to 18 months. After your teeth are in their desired position, you could have teeth whitening done to further transform your smile. This allows you to renovate your smile while keeping healthy teeth and gums.

Cosmetic bonding is also a great way to maintain your natural teeth, but get rid of unwanted stains and chipped or cracked teeth. You may not want to wait 18 months for your smile makeover to be complete, but this longer process allows Dr. Huefner to preserve your teeth.

Bone loss and advanced gum disease will require a different smile makeover method, which could shorten the length of your treatment considerably. Instant orthodontics can give you an immediate improvement through porcelain veneers. This option could complete your smile makeover in just one to two visits.

Every smile is unique, and we can customize your smile makeover to give you a smile you’re proud to show off.

If you’re interested in a smile makeover, please contact Dr. Huefner in Irvine today at (949) 491-9071 to schedule your dental exam. Our cosmetic dentistry office serves patients in Irvine, Orange County, Laguna Niguel and surrounding areas of California.
