what is a smile makeover?
Throughout your life, you may have experienced accidents, dental problems, and other difficulties that made your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at Chestnut Hill Dental is a custom treatment plan of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that will help improve the appearance of your teeth — and the overall health of your mouth. A smile makeover might include tooth whitening (at-home or in-office treatments), porcelain veneers, re-alignment of your teeth, bonding and contouring, and replacing old metal fillings with composite resin. Your smile makeover could also include restorative procedures like crowns or bridges to correct missing teeth. If you are interested in refreshing your smile so it is beautiful and healthy, schedule a consultation at our office in Chestnut Hill, MA to receive your customized smile makeover plan.
"Dr. Calcano has blessed hands. I was so nervous before a recent dental procedure and she made me feel comfortable. I was done before I knew it and the best part is that it was PAINLESS. Highly recommend her and her staff."- E.A. / Facebook / May 25, 2021
"Been going to chestnut dental since 1982. I never missed an appointment and never been disappointed. I used to hate going to the dentist until i started going here Great team. ."- P.S. / Google / Apr 07, 2021
"We've been coming to Chestnut Hill Dental for many years. The reason we've been loyal is because of the amazing service we've gotten and most importantly, the staff has been phenomenal. Lauren, Julia and Dr. Calcano are among the best. They always make us feel at home. On a side note, I wish I can say the same with the new receptionist. The younger one is cold and lacks friendly customer service. I was met with a cold response when I asked her a question. She is not very welcoming. We miss Erin."- A. / Demandforce / Sep 24, 2020

who is a good candidate for a dental makeover?
A smile makeover can help if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth, or if you need several cosmetic procedures. Our skilled dental team will customize your smile makeover program to meet your concerns and goals, but it may contain teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your enamel. Other cosmetic treatments that could be in your plan are veneers or bonding and contouring to improve the shape and length of your teeth, and to cover small gaps between your teeth. Dental restorations (crowns and bridges) may be suggested to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Chestnut Hill Dental, we use custom-made restorations so they blend with your other teeth for a seamless appearance.
Before you have cosmetic procedures, we will need to make certain your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems like a misaligned bite or gum disease, this will need to be addressed first.
what should I Expect during a teeth makeover?
Every smile makeover is personalized, so a member of our team will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, including how many appointments you may need. We will help you plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments of your smile makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures, although other sedation methods can be included if you will need help relaxing due to dental fears or anxieties. Throughout your smile makeover, our team will be happy to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
what should I expect after my dental makeover?
Once your smile makeover is complete, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth with a good home oral care routine (both brushing and flossing every day). In addition to home care, you should attend dental exams and cleanings at Chestnut Hill Dental so your oral health can be checked. With good attention, the results of your smile makeover should last for many years. Touch-up treatments every few years, like teeth whitening, may help to refresh your appearance. Veneers and restorations may also need to be repaired or replaced, which can all be discussed at your appointments.
are smile makeovers covered by dental insurance?
In your consultation, we will help develop a smile makeover that fits both your needs and your budget. We can estimate the cost of your treatment plan and explain payment methods we accept, including medical financing. The cosmetic procedures in a smile makeover are typically not covered by dental insurance plans, but some restorations could be partially covered. We will talk to your insurance company to determine your specific coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
