Throughout your lifetime, you may have had accidents, dental issues, and more that have made your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at City of Oaks Dental is a personalized treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that will aid in improving the appearance of your teeth — and the overall health of your mouth. A smile makeover might consist of teeth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), cosmetic veneers, orthodontics, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include dental restorations, like bridges or crowns, to fill in missing teeth. If you want to know more about improving your smile so that it's beautiful and healthy, make an appointment with Dr. Vivian Throop at her office in Raleigh, NC to receive your customized smile makeover plan.

At City of Oaks Dental, we work so that our Raleigh, NC individuals consistently appear and feel their best. Our Smile Makeover plan offers our patients multiple excellent benefits, including:

  • Quick way to have a few procedures in one go or close together
  • Reduce reasons that create difficulty eating or closing your jaw
  • Whiten and align your smile for a movie-star outcome
  • Grow your confidence and self-efficacy surrounding your mouth and total look

Who is a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

A good candidate for a smile makeover has cosmetic dental issues they want to address and would like an all-encompassing plan to improve their appearance. Be sure to express all of your concerns during a consultation — it’s important for you to be honest about what you don’t like about your smile. This could include chipped teeth, crooked teeth, stains and discoloration, missing teeth, and more. However, you must be in good overall health to be eligible for certain dental treatments. Dr. Throop will examine your teeth and gums before developing a unique smile makeover plan.

Each smile makeover is personalized so Dr. Throop will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment plan, such as the number of visits you may need. She can help you plan out your appointments to complete each of the procedures in your smile makeover. Local anesthesia will be used during a few of the procedures, but other sedation options can be suggested if you will need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. Throughout your smile makeover, Dr. Throop and her group will be available to answer any questions.

Once your smile makeover is complete, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (brushing and flossing daily). In addition to home maintenance, you should attend dental examinations and cleanings at City of Oaks Dental so Dr. Throop can check your oral health. With appropriate attention, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every few years, such as teeth whitening, may help to refresh your results. Veneers and restorations may also need to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Throop at your appointments.

We can help you create a grin you'll enjoy showing off with a personalized smile makeover. At your initial consultation with Dr. Throop, she will go over the cosmetic and restorative procedures that fit your aesthetic goals. Speak to our Raleigh, NC office to plan your smile makeover consultation.

It's best to check with our administrative team to see what your insurance may cover once an estimate has been established.
Does it hurt?

You will likely receive a form of sedation prior to numbing for most dental treatments. Any residual pain you experience after the procedure can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and ice, as needed.

City of Oaks manages to make a visit to the dentist pleasant! Their entire staff is very welcoming and thorough. I have learned a lot about my dental health but also holistically about what causes my snoring and grinding. They make it clear that they care about your entire wellbeing as a patient.

I have been going to City of Oaks Dental for a handful of years and they’ve always provided excellent care and service! The team is great. I leave each visit more confident with my smile following the dental work (Invisalign, etc.) and their helping to keep my oral hygiene in check! They also have a beautiful new office. 😁
