What does the smile makeover process look like?
Since every patient is different, the smile makeover process may vary from patient to patient. The first step in smile makeover development is for Dr. Frey to give you a comprehensive dental examination. We spend an hour with every new patient, taking X-rays and performing a computer simulation of what your new smile will look like. This is called dental imaging. There are different shapes of smiles, like round, square and something in between. Dental imaging will allow us to not only plan your new beautiful smile in advance, but we can take impressions and have our lab make a diagnostic mock-up of your new ideal smile. We use this as a template that goes into your own smile. At the end of the smile makeover process, you will have a bright new smile that you always dreamed of in just two major visits!
how is smile makeover performed?
Once your gums are healthy and no other dental issues exist, Dr. Frey will then use the cosmetic, restorative, and neuromuscular dentistry techniques needed for your specific smile makeover. At this first visit, we prepare your teeth for porcelain veneers. Different types of veneers exist – we will prepare the right type for you. You leave this visit with a gorgeous new temporary smile that we call, “The Trial Smile”.
A day or two later you return to our office and Dr. Frey will tweak your trial smile to exactly what looks best for you. Longer or shorter teeth, whiter teeth, more rounded or more square teeth. Dr. Frey is an artist and he can “tweak” your trial smile into the smile of your dreams. At this point, its the labs turn to copy what we created in the trial smile. You return in a week or two and we try on your new porcelain veneers and make sure they fit perfectly and look gorgeous! If not, they are not bonded in permanently until they are perfect. Once they are perfect, we will place them in for you to enjoy for many years to come.
why choose Dr. Frey for your Smile Makeover?
Dr. Frey’s extensive training and experience make him the right choice for your full mouth restoration. With more than 27 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Frey is able to treat a number of dental conditions. For example, if you have a “gummy” smile, Dr. Frey can use laser dentistry techniques to modify your gum line. In the opposite situation, if you do not show enough teeth in your smile and you want to show more, Dr. Frey uses advanced techniques for you to show more teeth in your smile. In addition, as an experienced implant dentist, Dr. Frey can help Los Angeles dental implants patients achieve a vibrant, healthy smile after tooth loss. Finally, Dr. Frey prescribes the methods of neuromuscular dentistry and can help alleviate jaw pain and increase comfort for TMJ LA patients. Dental veneers are also offered at Dr. Frey’s practice.
Facelift at the Dental Office
Great teeth can make you look younger! Dr. David Frey can give you a dental facelift at his office – a great alternative to facelift surgery!
what is a dental “facelift”?
As we age, the teeth wear down due to jaw movement which can cause sagging and drooping of the face. During your visit to our Beverly Hills office, Dr. Frey will relax your jaw muscles and find your original jaw positioning. By placing your jaw back in its original position, Dr. Frey can bring back your jawline and restore your teeth in that position.
what to expect during a dental “facelift”
During your “facelift” procedure, Dr. Frey will reposition your jaw and build your new smile around this positioning. Dental implants or porcelain veneers can be used to rebuild your bite and keep your jaw in the proper position.
Sedation dentistry options
Dental anxiety and fear do not have to keep you from getting your Smile Makeover. Dr. Frey is proud to offer sedation (sleep) dentistry. Even if you need a lot of dental work, the procedure will seem to fly by with this treatment.
