The Benefits of a Smile Makeover

Improved Confidence

If you're self-conscious about the appearance of your smile, correcting cosmetic issues can give you the confidence to smile brightly at your next date, interview, or big meeting.

Uniquely Designed

At Dr. Goodman's office in Kansas City, MO, smile makeovers are not one-size-fits-all. Our dentist takes the time to assess your smile, understand your cosmetic goals, and custom-design a unique plan.

Within Your Budget

Because every smile makeover is custom-designed, your treatment plan will be made with your budget in mind. Not only will you receive the best care you can afford, spreading out the treatments over time can make them much easier on your wallet. 

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic procedures to address several aesthetic concerns. At our practice, cosmetic dentist John Goodman begins the smile makeover process with a consultation, during which he learns about the patient's cosmetic issues, budget, and goals. After collecting this information, Dr. Goodman can design a makeover plan unique to that patient.

What Can a Smile Makeover Address?

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

Stains or Discoloration

Gummy Smiles

Too Long or Too Short Teeth

Uneven Arches

Gapped Teeth

Crowded or Crooked Teeth

Pointed or Jagged Teeth

Visible Metal Fillings

Dr. Goodman can handle nearly all cosmetic issues at his office in Kansas City. However, if you require gum lift surgery or multiple dental extractions, Dr. Goodman can coordinate with other specialists in the area to give you the best care available.

If you have significant oral health issues, such as missing teeth or gum disease, more advanced forms of dentistry may be necessary. Dr. Goodman is also highly experienced in restorative dentistry, providing treatments like dental implants and dental crowns.

What Treatments Are Involved?

Over time, a variety of factors can cause our teeth to become discolored. Teeth whitening treatment at Dr. Goodman's dental practice can evenly brighten your smile by several shades. We provide both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that a dentist can attach to the front of imperfect teeth, obscuring cracks, chips, or discolorations. In some cases, porcelain veneers can also correct gapped or crooked teeth. The veneers at our practice are very durable and Dr. Goodman can attach veneers in a single visit.

Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin to fill in minor chips or cracks on the surface of teeth. It can also be used to fill in small gaps in the smile. The treatment is quick, safe, and affordable.

If your gums extend too far over your teeth, our dentist can remove excess gum tissue through gum contouring. Dr. Goodman uses laser technology to precisely shape the gums and give patients a balanced and symmetrical smile.

If you have old-fashioned metal fillings, Dr. Goodman can replace them with more aesthetically-pleasing composite fillings. These fillings are the same color as your natural teeth and just as effective in addressing cavities.

If you require restorative treatment, Dr. Goodman also provides dental implants, dental crowns, and full mouth reconstructions.

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

Because every smile makeover is unique, treatment takes longer for some patients than others. However, Dr. Goodman takes pride in accomplishing excellent results for most patients in as few as two visits to his dental office. These appointments can be less than one month apart, meaning that you could have a significantly upgraded smile by this time next month!

This was an A+ experience for me.  They all made me feel very comfortable.  They even called me an hour and a half before my 9:00 AM appointment to reschedule due to the overnight icy streets.  Thought that was very considerate. View On Google

But I'm Afraid of the Dentist...

Many people avoid important dental care because dentistry makes them nervous. Dr. Goodman understands this and goes above and beyond in making the environment at his practice as relaxing and stress-free as possible.

In the case of a smile makeover, nervous patients can take comfort in the fact that cosmetic dentistry is typically very low-risk and non-invasive. Should you desire, Dr. Goodman can provide nitrous oxide sedation to help you stay relaxed during treatment.

Dr. Goodman will make a special effort to ensure you know everything about the procedures involved in your makeover plan. To help you visualize the end result of your makeover, Dr. Goodman can provide a wax-up, a wax model of your future smile.

Additionally, you don't have to worry about Dr. Goodman using poorly made or unsafe materials in your treatment. We only work with dental labs of the highest quality to ensure our patient's receive safe and long-lasting results.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?

The cost of a smile makeover varies from patient to patient based on the treatments involved. When you come in for an initial consultation, Dr. Goodman will take your budget into account when planning your makeover.

As an example of what treatment could cost, porcelain veneers or crowns can cost between $1,500 and $1,650 per tooth. If the tooth needs work to prepare it for veneer or crown placement, that may cost an additional $350.

Remember that when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, cheaper is not always better. For natural-looking and long lasting results, it's best to work with an experienced dentist like Dr. Goodman who only uses the highest quality of materials.

Because cosmetic dentistry is elective in nature, most dental insurance plans will not cover the cost of a smile makeover. Dr. Goodman and his team will work with you to make sure that you do access any available coverage in your insurance plan. Additionally, he also provides financing plans through CareCredit®.
