What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a carefully designed program of smile restoration that includes multiple treatments performed in a specific sequence over time, helping patients address an array of cosmetic issues. In a smile makeover, the dentist works closely with the patient to identify their goals and concerns, then devises a plan that’s just for their needs.

Yes, many cosmetic treatments also offer preventive or restorative benefits as well. For instance, straightening teeth, covering damaged teeth, or closing gaps between teeth can all reduce the risks of gum disease and tooth decay and make it easier to clean teeth and gums so they stay healthy. Tooth-colored fillings have been shown to bond more securely compared to traditional metal fillings, preventing decay from “seeping in” underneath or around the filling. Crowns can also be used to add strength to teeth with large areas of damage, preventing additional damage while also improving the look of your smile.

Do they cover cosmetic dentistry treatments by insurance? 

Dental Insurance

Procedures that are strictly cosmetic like whitening generally are not covered by insurance, but procedures that offer a preventive or restorative benefit may be covered in part. Our staff can help determine the level of coverage that’s available as well as identify financing options to make the cost of care affordable.

A smile actually changes a person's face value and boosts up their self-confidence in the community. Cosmetic Dentist In Bangalore Dr. Deepak Rudramoorthy says, "As far as the smile goes, even a small change can make a favorable impact. The way you look can be altered by making subtle to drastic changes just to your teeth.

Who can get a cosmetic dental procedure? 

A person with a chipped or discolored tooth is a good candidate for a smile makeover procedure.
In order to evaluate if cosmetic contouring is ideal for the person, we conduct X-rays. This helps evaluate the size of the tooth and the location of the nerve present. A sufficient amount of enamel, which is the outer layer of the tooth should be present, so that the tooth does not become weak after the procedure, thereby providing a long-term solution for the client. In order to get the best out of all this, it is advisable to combine some procedures like teeth whitening along with contouring to get a younger-looking smile.

Cost Of Teeth Whitening

The Cost Of Teeth whitening depends on the type of teeth whitening system used:
The approximate cost of an in-office tooth whitening in Bangalore would be between Rs 8000 to 15,000. Your dentist can also advise a home bleaching kit which can cost about Rs 10000 to 25,000 depending on the number of bleaching tubes been discussed to achieve the desired results. Today at Diva Dental Care Bangalore we use a tooth whitening system called Opalescence which would cost about Rs 3000 per sitting.
