Smile Makeover

San Antonio Dental Office

smile makeover: from ugly to awesome

What is a smile makeover? A smile makeover takes an ugly smile and transforms it into something beautiful that you can be proud of and feel good sharing with everyone around you. Why do a smile makeover? If your teeth are broken or chipped, decayed or badly stained, or just covered in darn ugly old crowns, a smile makeover gives you your smile back. Maybe an injury or past illness destroyed your smile. Have old fillings or crowns gotten stained and look nasty or fake? Did cavities take their toll? Whatever the cause, a smile makeover will give you a gorgeous new smile.  

Smile Makeovers Transform How you Smile & How you feel

before and after dentures

You not only look better.
You feel better too!

Feel better about your smile,
about yourself and about life!

When beauty matters, details matters

You want a gorgeous new smile that looks like YOUR smile, feels like YOUR teeth and lasts for many years. How do you make sure that’s what you get?

First and foremost, find a dentist who takes the time to talk to you and find out who you are, what you want and what you need. A good dentist spends more time examining your mouth and planning than he does drilling. A dentist in a hurry to drill is a bad thing. After all, drills don’t have erasers. Find someone who will design the case digitally, go through sample smile stages and who asks you LOTS of questions. 

Smile makeover are not only complex clinically, but they are also a major financial investment. Find a dentist who treats yours like the complex procedure it is and who respects your investment and health enough to plan carefully. If you have an exam today and are programmed for full mouth reconstruction tomorrow, the dentist isn’t taking your case seriously. Period.

When Smiling is a Team Sport: Meet Michael!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, Michael’s pictures are like a graphic novel. His smile makeover required the combined expertise of a team of doctors. A phenomenal local orthodontist started Michael’s smile makeover and asked me to join her multi-disciplinary team to help create Michael’s dream smile.

Dr. Amy Jackson took charge of putting the teeth in the right place and my job was to create his new teeth. It was awesome to see his smile develop as we went through the steps of whitening, prepping and crowns. For the final touch, we were joined by a gum specialist who helped with gum re-sculpting. As you can see in these pictures, Michael’s new smile looks stunning!

When making smiles takes a team

The Team Approach to Smile Makeover is the best solution for any smile makeover that requires services beyond cosmetic or restorative dentistry. When that happens, it is critical to team up with additional specialists. Depending on the patient’s needs, the team may include various surgeons, such as a plastic surgeon if facial surgery is needed, or an oral surgeon if bone surgery is needed. Some cases, like Michael’s above, require complex adult orthodontic treatment, in which case we work with doctors such as Dr. Amy Jackson and Dr. Richard Hulme. When extensive grafts are needed, we include a periodontist, such as Dr. Steven Maller or Dr. Kenneth Krueger. Sometimes these specialists are part of our regular team at Precision Cosmetic Dentistry & Digital Dentures. Sometimes they are in another facility.

Teamwork Improves Health & Smile Makeover Success

In some cases, the success of a smile reconstruction depends on stabilizing chronic health conditions. In these cases, we team up with your physicians to insure that you get and keep the best results possible. What happens in the mouth affects the whole body. Similarly, what happens in the body also affects the mouth. For patients with sleep disorders, hormone imbalances, diabetes, cancer, heart problems, joint replacement and eating disorders, this cooperation between physician and dentist can make the difference between smooth treatment and fantastic results and failed surgeries and restorations. It’s that important.

    My husband and I have been coming here for 25 years. We drive 20 miles to get here and there are many dentists we could use that are much closer, but we choose Dr. Bec.

    Just had two crowns removed, two cavities treated, and two temporary crowns installed. The next day I had the temporary crowns removed and permanent crowns installed. All materials and equipment used were first class, the work was minimally uncomfortable and most importantly the final product is as near perfect as humanly possible. Same results for his implants and cavity resolution. Dr. Bec is highly skilled, compassionate and his staff is likewise. I recommend Dr. Bec to anyone who values their teeth.

    I’ve been a patient of this dental practice since 2013 and I’ve never been disappointed! Every single time I come in I’m being welcomed by Yvonne and Stephanie with a big friendly smile. They call me by name and make the experience personal. I was generally afraid of dental appointments but Dr Bec, assistants Desire and Gill, Otilia(executive) and the entire team made the visits feel enjoyable, they made me feel part of the family and I would always leave the office with a smile. I can’t thank them enough for the care and support they offer during each visit. I greatly recommend this dental office, and specifically Dr Bec for the amazing work he does. I smile bigger and brighter because of the work he does! I recently finished my Invisalign treatment and the results are amazing. I’ve gotten many compliments on my new smile. Thank you so much for all you do! Maria Bizau
