Frequently Asked Smile Makeover Questions
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a series of cosmetic dentistry treatments designed to address multiple aesthetic issues to enhance the beauty of a smile. Common issues Dr. Beshar can remedy with a smile makeover include stained teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, missing teeth, or cracked or chipped teeth. At Dr. Beshar’s smile makeover practice in Manhattan, we work closely with each patient to understand his or her goals, then create a treatment plan customized to suit their unique needs.
Can I afford a smile makeover?
Dr. Beshar and the team at our Manhattan practice firmly believe that a beautiful smile should be within everyone’s reach. To make sure our patients get the care they need at a price they can afford, we are happy to offer a number of payment and financing options for cosmetic dentistry treatment. If cost is a concern for you, be sure to let us know. Dr. Beshar may be able to suggest alternative treatments that will help you achieve a stunning smile at a price you can afford.
I have a chipped tooth. What can Dr. Beshar do for me?
At Dr. Beshar’s Manhattan smile makeover office, we offer a number of options to restore beauty and function to teeth that are chipped or cracked. Porcelain veneers can be fitted over broken teeth to mask any imperfections and add strength. Some patients may be better served with cosmetic dental bonding to hide cracks or chips, as bonding is a faster and often more affordable option. If a tooth is severely damaged, Dr. Beshar may suggest that you have that tooth extracted and use a dental implant to replace it. Regardless of the extent of aesthetic and structural damage, Dr. Beshar has the ideal solution for teeth that are cracked or chipped.
I hate that my teeth are stained, but don’t have time for in-office tooth whitening. Does Dr. Beshar offer a more convenient option?
A smile that is bright and white is very important, and we understand that not everybody has time to sit for in-office tooth whitening. Dr. Beshar also offers a number of at-home whitening options so that our patients can brighten their smiles when it works best for them. Contact us to learn about at-home options like tray bleaching, paint-on whiteners, and tooth whitening strips.
I am missing a few teeth, but I hate the idea of wearing dentures. Is there another tooth replacement solution for me?
Yes! While removable dentures are the best tooth replacement option for some patients, many of Dr. Beshar’s Manhattan-are patients choose to fill the gaps left by missing teeth with dental implants. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent—they never need to be removed for eating or cleaning, and they look and feel just like your natural teeth. To learn more about dental implants, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Beshar.
My teeth are a bit crooked, but I don’t want to deal with the hassle and appearance of braces. Can Dr. Beshar help?
At Dr. Beshar’s Manhattan practice, Invisalign® invisible braces allow us to straighten patients’ smiles without the look and inconvenience of traditional metal braces. Invisalign® treatment involves the patient wearing a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually shift the position of their teeth. Invisalign® aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, so they are much more convenient for our patients than braces are. What’s more, treatment with Invisalign® often requires fewer office visits than braces, and Invisalign® can straighten a smile in just about the same amount of time as braces. For teeth that are only minimally crooked, Dr. Freidman may also be able to apply porcelain veneers in just two office visits.
