When Dr. Bauer designs a smile makeover for you, he may choose to include...

Porcelain Veneers

Do you have teeth that are stained, cracked, misshapen, or slightly crooked? Dental veneers may be the perfect option for you.

Veneers are attached to the surfaces of one or more teeth, obscuring imperfections. Dr. Bauer uses high-quality veneers at his Lakewood practice to give his patients bright, symmetrical, attractive smiles.

Attaching veneers is a relatively simple process, and they are as easy to care for as your natural teeth. Contact us today to learn more about this popular and effective option.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is consistently one of the most asked-about procedures in dentistry. At our Lakewood practice, we offer take-home whitening kits and in-office whitening treatment.

Unlike over-the-counter products or whitening toothpastes, professional whitening produces noticeable results in a short amount of time. In fact, our in-office whitening option can brighten your smile by several shades in an hour or less.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are like caps that cover damaged teeth. While they are typically used to cover compromised teeth after root canal therapy or other restorative treatments, they can also be utilized for their cosmetic benefits.

The crowns we use at Bear Creek Family Dental are indistinguishable from natural teeth. If you have an imperfect tooth that doesn't qualify for a veneer, our dentist may recommend a crown to enhance your smile.

Dr. Bauer can also attach crowns to dental implants to restore missing teeth.

Aftercare

woman flossing

Maintaining good oral hygiene practices like brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once daily is crucial in keeping your new smile looking its best. Your dentist will most likely recommend a non-abrasive toothpaste and demonstrate gentle brushing techniques so you do not scratch the surfaces of porcelain veneers and other restorations. Alcohol-free mouthwash is typically another recommendation your cosmetic dentist may make in order to help you maintain your smile. Over time, the alcohol in regular mouthwash can break down the bonding between your restorations and your teeth, shortening their lifespan. 

Listening to your dentist's care instructions, maintaining good brushing and flossing habits, and attending six-month checkups are the best ways to prolong the lifespan of all the enhancements your smile makeover provides. 

Things To Avoid After a Smile Makeover

Biting Hard Objects

Refrain from chewing on your nails, pens, or pencils, and do not open any type of packaging with your teeth.

Grinding or Clenching Your Teeth

If you are a habitual teeth grinder, it will be apparent to Dr. Bauer. He can provide a custom mouthguard to wear overnight that will help protect your teeth.

Foods High in Sugar

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is crucial in prolonging the results of your makeover. Foods high in sugar increase your risk of cavities and other issues.

Highly Acidic Drinks

Similar to foods with sugar, highly acidic beverages such as coffee, tea, and alcohol can sit on your teeth and gums and wear away at the enamel. Over time, this can cause your natural teeth and restorations to become stained or worn down. When you choose to indulge in these types of drinks, rinse your mouth with water afterward, and be sure and brush your teeth 30 minutes later in order to prevent stains.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?

It Depends on Your Treatment Plan

The cost of a smile makeover is totally dependent on the type and number of treatments in your plan. In short, more treatments typically equal greater expense. For patients who have underlying oral health issues, your dentist will most likely recommend restorative or general dentistry procedures before the cosmetic treatments can begin. While cosmetic treatments require paying out-of-pocket, practical treatments usually qualify for at least partial insurance coverage.

What You Get From Your Investment

It's hard to put a price on confidence. When you are embarrassed by your smile, it can affect the way you interact with others. Imagine being able to show up for a job interview, go on a date, or mingle at a party without having to worry about the way your smile looks. The power of confidence can be priceless, and Dr. Bauer in Lakewood is here to help you experience all the best benefits of a beautiful and healthy smile.
