Unhappy With the Appearance of Your Smile? Consider a Smile Makeover
Age, genetics, diet, smoking, and oral trauma are just a few ways an individual’s natural smile deteriorates, wreaking havoc on typical speech patterns, chewing, oral health, and self-confidence. At Michaela Tozzi, DMD, we strive to help our patients reclaim fuller, gorgeous smiles with a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques, all combined in one customized package: a smile makeover. Dr. Michaela Tozzi is highly trained in the diagnostics and treatment of oral health conditions for patients throughout Las Vegas, NV.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a highly tailored dental experience that combines restorative and cosmetic efforts to provide patients with fuller, brighter, natural-looking smiles. Men and women throughout Las Vegas, NV are frequently searching for ways to improve their teeth for aesthetic and oral health reasons. A customized smile makeover allows each patient to pick and choose from a wide variety of dental treatments to help achieve their personal goals. Dr. Tozzi carefully assesses each patient’s oral health to provide her own professional recommendations.

Benefits of a smile makeover
A smile makeover can provide a patient with numerous, long-term benefits, including:
- A fuller, natural-looking smile
- Increased self-confidence
- Improved speech patterns
- Enhanced chewing capacity
- A younger overall appearance
- A customized dental experience
Ideal candidates for a smile makeover
Candidates for a smile makeover usually have:
- Overall good, general health
- Good oral health
- No baby teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Gapped, misshapen, cracked, or crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
- Old metal fillings
Dr. Tozzi will assess your teeth, gums, and jawline to determine if you can safely participate in a smile makeover. Patients with active gum disease, tooth decay, or other oral infections may need to resolve these issues prior to receiving their smile makeover.
How the treatment process works
Each smile makeover will present differently depending on the treatment(s) selected for a customized package. Some patients may participate in a single, outpatient session, which is common for a teeth-whitening treatment. For others who are participating in more drastic changes, including dental implants, porcelain veneers, or dentures, multiple treatment sessions will be needed. Consult with Dr. Tozzi about what to expect for your smile makeover treatment timeline.
Is there any recovery time after a smile makeover?
For patients who participate in simple outpatient procedures, there is little to no required downtime. For men and women who receive dental implants, porcelain veneers, bridges, crowns, or other restorations, there may be temporary dietary restrictions to optimize healing and recovery. Out of all the smile makeover treatments, dental implants tend to require the longest and most intensive recovery protocols. If you have any questions about your specific recovery expectations, consult with Dr. Tozzi.
How long will my smile makeover last?
With the right lifestyle choices and dental hygiene habits, your smile makeover results have the capacity to last for many years. To get more mileage from your smile makeover outcomes, consider applying the following tips to your daily routine:
- Brush and floss your natural teeth and restorations twice daily
- Rinse and sanitize all restorations
- Avoid excessively hard, chewy, or sticky foods
- Limit sugar intake
- Eat a healthy, nutritious diet
- Stay well hydrated
- Attend routine dental checkups and professional cleanings
