Smile Makeover Cost

Every smile makeover is different, meaning the cost of treatment can vary significantly from patient to patient. A smile makeover is unique in that it combines multiple services to completely transform your smile. Smile makeover cost is affected by the number of procedures performed, the dentist’s level of experience, and a range of other factors. During your initial consultation, your dentist can explain your options and provide you with an estimate of the expected cost of treatment.

Extent of Treatment

Smile makeovers combine multiple procedures into one comprehensive treatment plan. These can range from teeth whitening to dental bonding and porcelain crowns. The number and type of treatments you choose for your smile makeover will affect the final cost. Typically, smile makeovers focus on cosmetic enhancements. If you have underlying oral health concerns such as gum disease, your dentist will likely recommend that you seek periodontal treatment prior to your makeover. Additional general or restorative procedures will raise the cost of treatment.

Smile makeovers consist primarily of treatments that are not covered by insurance. While a crown placed for practical purposes would usually qualify, a crown used to achieve an aesthetic upgrade probably would not.

Level of Experience

In general, dentists with greater training will charge more for treatment than a less experienced practitioner. However, choosing a reputable dentist is an important step when considering any alterations to your smile. While you may save money up front by working with a dentist new to the industry, there is a higher likelihood of complications, and you may need costly retreatment in the future.

Advanced Technology

Advancements in dental technology have created a range of innovative tools and techniques for enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Many dentists now incorporate these tools as they plan and execute your smile makeover. For example, your dentist may use advanced imaging technology, such as digital impressions or virtual smile design software, to view your jaw and teeth and begin planning your treatment. Keep in mind that advanced treatment methods may cost more than traditional techniques.

Geographic Location

In general, the costs associated with dental treatment vary depending on where you live. Higher overhead costs in major urban areas tend to raise the cost of elective dental procedures.

Sedation

For most patients, cosmetic alterations are performed under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort. However, if you are anxious about your treatment, many dentists offer sedation options to help you relax. Your options may include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or intravenous (IV) sedation. The cost of sedation is not typically included in the initial estimate and will likely raise the price of your treatment overall.

Insurance and Financing

Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures as they are not medically necessary. However, if part of your makeover has a restorative purpose, you may receive partial coverage. Dental crowns, for example, can enhance the appearance of a tooth, but they also strengthen the integrity of your bite and restore dental function. Your dentist can provide more information about insurance as well as in-house or third party financing options to help you cover the out-of-pocket expenses.

Enhancing Your Smile

For many patients, enhancing the aesthetics of their smile improves their self-confidence and their quality of life. You can discuss the different cost factors with your dentist and determine if a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan is the right option for you.
