How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?
Since every smile makeover is different, there is no set timeline. Treatment timelines will differ from patient to patient. Dr. Hodge can complete a treatment in as few as two visits to his dental office and takes pride in accomplishing excellent results for his patients. These appointments can be less than one month apart, meaning that you could have a significantly upgraded smile by this time next month!
For smile makeovers that require dental implants or clear correct, treatment can take several months or longer. Treatment time can be shorter if your smile makeover includes porcelain veneers and dental bonding.

Common Smile Makeover Procedures
From patient to patient a smile makeover can vary greatly. To have the smile of your dreams, there are several procedures that are commonly combined.
Porcelain veneers fit over the surface of your tooth. They’re a thin shell on the front of a tooth. When a veneer is placed, stains, gaps, cracks, chips and other dental flaws are instantly concealed from view.
When a tooth is worn or damaged by trauma or decay, it can be restored using a porcelain dental crown. These durable caps are designed so they are very similar to your natural teeth.
When undergoing a smile makeover a brighter smile is a common goal. This can be achieved with in-office teeth whitening treatments. One session can lighten a smile by several shades.
Dental Implants are titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots to support dentures, bridges, and crowns. When cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime.
Dental bonding, also know as cosmetic bonding uses the application of an advanced dental resin to your teeth. The bonding material conceals cracks, stains and other common flaws.
Dental bridges are replacement teeth that can either attach to adjacent dental implant or dental crowns.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?
The cost of a smile makeover can differ from patient to patient. This is based on the treatments that are included. There is no set cost for the procedure. When you come in for an initial consultation, Dr. Hodge will factor your budget into account when planning your smile makeover. During your consultation, we will develop a customized treatment plan with you and assess your situation.
As an example of what treatment could cost, porcelain veneers or crowns can cost between $1,200 and $1,650 per tooth. If the tooth is not ready and needs to be prepared for a crown or veneer placement, that may cost an additional $350.
A good rule of thumb is when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, cheaper is not always better. For long lasting and natural-looking results, it’s best to work with an experienced dentist like Dr. Hodge who only uses the highest quality materials.
Most dental insurance plans will not cover the cost of a smile makeover because cosmetic dentistry is elective by nature. Dr. Hodge and his team will work with you to make sure that you do access any available coverage in your insurance plan. Additionally, he also provides financing plans through CareCredit®.
