Frequently Asked Questions

What is a smile makeover?
Recent advancements in dentistry have made it possible for just about anyone to have nearly perfect looking teeth with just a few visits to a cosmetic dentist. Many dentists are now specially trained in "cosmetic" or "aesthetic" procedures and are using these techniques to make people look better and feel better about themselves, giving them more self-confidence and a desire to smile proudly.

What are the cosmetic dentistry procedures?
There are numerous procedures a cosmetic dentist may use to upgrade your smile. Most people know about teeth whitening in which stained or discolored teeth can be whitened in the dental office in about an hour. Silver or mercury fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings. Cosmetic dentists also bond custom designed porcelain veneers over crooked or spaced teeth for a movie-star smile in as little as two visits. A resin bonding material is used for virtually indistinguishable repairs to chipped or broken teeth. Another major innovation are "invisible braces" in which a series of removable, custom fitted, clear plastic trays are used to provide nearly the same results as metal braces but are practically unnoticeable.

Why do I have to select a dentist to get my free SmileOver?
The dentists listed in your area have agreed to sponsor your free SmileOver. The dentist you select from the list will review your "before and after" photos and may contact you to answer any questions you may have and discuss your interest in making this "new you" a reality.

How accurate is a SmileOver virtual smile makeover?
SmileOver tries to give you an accurate and realistic image of what you could look like with a cosmetic dental makeover. However actual results will vary based on a variety of factors that only a dentist can assess. Because of these factors, SmileOver cannot claim or guarantee your actual results will look like your "virtual" smile makeover. Therefore we urge you to discuss your before and after photos with a cosmetic dentist.
