Referred to by its more technical sounding label — full oral rehabilitation — an even wider range of possibilities might be conjured.

Smile Makeover FAQ’s
Frequently-Asked-Questions about our Smile Makeover
Fore more information about our Smile Makeover Procedure at Angeles Hospital in Tijuana, please read the most frequently asked questions our patients and their families make in their one-on-one consultation with our medical team.
Ideal candidates for a Smile Makeover are:
- Patients who are unhappy with their smile appearance.
- Patients who are worried about the condition of their teeth.
- Patients with cracked, chipped or broken teeth.
- Patients with missing teeth.
- Patients with uneven teeth.
- Patients with stained teeth.
- Patients with gaps between their teeth.
- Patients who feel their smile shows to much of their gums.
- Patients whose self-esteem has been affected by the way their smile looks and do everything in their power to hide it.
However, our dentist at Angeles Hospital in Tijuana will comprehensively examine the patient. They need to have good oral health (gums) and a sound dental structure and bite (occlusion) to determine if they are a candidate for the Smile Makeover procedure.
*Structural problems and oral health issues must be addressed prior to engaging in any makeover procedures.
*Young children who have not grown the full complement of permanent teeth may not be candidates for smile makeovers because their jaw growth is not yet complete. To know if your child is a candidate, a consultation with your family dentist is recommended.
After our medical team performs the proper evaluations and the design plan is approved by our surgeon and the patient, the next step is for the patient to see a preview of the potential results.
Our cosmetic dentists use different technologies, including wax models of temporary teeth, dental imaging software and before and after pictures of other patients, to show the possible results and get the patients approval.
In addition, the previews help us communicate to the dental lab the final look of the dental implants, crowns and veneers they will produce.
Our surgeons address the following aspects of a patients smile. (Each case is different)
- Tooth Color: Stained or worn out teeth can be improved with teeth whitening or replaced with natural, tooth-colored composites. These types of procedures are used as the final step in many of our cosmetic dental procedures, such as: veneers, crowns, bridges or dental implants.
- Alignment and Spacing: Patients with crooked and overlapping teeth or with gaps between them, normally choose between dental veneers or orthodontics.
- Missing Teeth: In this situation, a missing tooth causes tooth decay in the rest of the smile and of course, influences the patient’s appearance. The replacement of missing teeth is usually a very important part of the smile makeover. They can be replaced by dental implants or treated with dental bridges or partial dentures.
- Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth: Composite bonding improves the appearance of out of balance teeth.
- Lips, Smile and Cheeks: Orthodontics or maxillofacial surgery rehabilitate an unshapely or aging face.
- Tooth Length: For short teeth our surgeons choose between a composite bonding or porcelain veneers. In the case of patients with gummy smiles, they might modify the gum line and lengthen the appearance of the teeth using laser dentistry procedures. Our surgeons use the smile line as a reference to help them determine the optimal length of a patient’s teeth
- Tooth Proportions: For most people a perfect smile is one in which the two central front teeth are dominant and have a width-to-length ratio of 4-to-5.
- Tooth Texture and Characterization: Our cosmetic dentists perform a combination of functionally and aesthetics to create a more feminine or a more masculine appearance, matching the dental crowns and veneers to the characteristics of natural teeth.
Benefits of a Smile Makeover
- Minimal risk of unstable and worn-down teeth.
- Easy cleaning procedure.
- Lowe risk of decay or infections.
- White and straighten teeth.
- Improved self-esteem.
- Patients feel younger.
- Improved facial appearance.
The risks involved in our Smile Makeover procedure are related to the specific dental procedures our surgeon perform and they will be treated by our cosmetic dentist.
However, our patients need to remember that all cosmetic dentistry procedures, require maintenance and a cleaning process. For example:
- Teeth whitening must be repeated to maintain brightness.
- Porcelain veneers can chip or break and need replacement after a couple of years.
- Permanent composite bonding can stain and may require enhancement or replacement.
- Dental crowns typically require replacement after 10 to 15 years.
- Gummy smile improvements may also require periodic enhancement.
Any patient considering a smile makeover should discuss thoroughly with their dentist the specific care and maintenance considerations of the techniques involved in their treatment plan.
