What Cosmetic Dental Problems Can be Fixed with a Smile Makeover?
While regular brushing and flossing help prevent your teeth from cavities and gum infections, there are still some dental issues that require expert professional assistance. For example, the strength, longevity, and the appearance of your teeth is primarily determined by your genes. As we grow old, our muscles relax, and our smile and facial appearance change; wrinkles start to appear around the corners of the mouth – and our teeth become yellower. All these factors have a negative effect on our smile.
But no need to worry; A dental makeover can rejuvenate your smile and confidence. You are a candidate for getting a complete smile makeover if you have any of the following issues:
- Damaged or decayed teeth
- Missing teeth
- Stained Teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Worn down or stained existing dental fillings
- Underbite or overbite
You may be concerned that a complete smile dental makeover will take months to complete – or it will be painful. Absolutely not! Thanks to Dr. Ivan Ho’s signature Smile Makeover technique, most aesthetic problems can be fixed in a single appointment. Our caring and gentle staff will also ensure that your smile transformation journey is a relaxing, painless, and comfortable experience.
What to Expect During a Complete Dental Makeover?
Every patient has unique needs; that is why Dr. Ivan Ho will work closely with you in planning your treatment and designing a smile that perfectly matches your facial features and personality. Dr. Ivan Ho has undergone advanced training to identify and resolve even the most complex aesthetic problems. And with over 30 years of clinical experience, Dr. Ivan Ho has fixed every aesthetic problem while rejuvenating over ten thousand smiles. A complete dental makeover at Pro Smiles Orange County involves – but is not limited to – treatment of tooth misalignments, adjustment of tooth size, proportion, and color, and replacement of missing teeth.
Full Mouth Implants
When it comes to replacing missing natural teeth, dental implants are the perfect solution. Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth – with a restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like the natural teeth. An implant is a fixture made of titanium alloys that are safe for use inside the human body. The implant is carefully inserted into the jaw, where it becomes firmly anchored within the bone – and provides a solid foundation for porcelain crowns, bridges, or removable dentures – for replacing missing teeth.
If you have lost all your teeth, or if you have teeth that have extensive damage or decay, Dr. Ivan Ho may recommend a full set of artificial teeth that is supported by dental implants. Dental implants are a cosmetically and functionally superior alternative to a removable denture for replacing all missing teeth. With full mouth implants, you can eat whatever you like – without worrying about slippage or dislodgement. Your new teeth will function just like your natural teeth – and give you a naturally pleasant and beautiful smile.
A partial or full set of dentures is an excellent solution for restoring a smile that has been ruined because of missing teeth. Thanks to modern dentistry, removable dentures today are more comfortable and aesthetically pleasant than ever. Traditional dentures are more cost-effective in comparison to other tooth replacement options but may cause discomfort to some patients.
Traditionally, the process of replacing missing teeth with dentures may require a few weeks to complete. However, Dr. Ivan Ho understands that this is not acceptable for many patients – they cannot live without their teeth. That is why Dr. Ivan Ho can prepare “immediate dentures” for you – removable dentures that we will give you on the same day when we extract the remaining teeth. No need to wait for months – you leave our clinic with your smile intact.
Veneers are a conservative option for cosmetically improving the shape, size, and color of your teeth – without the need for excessive tooth preparation. A veneer is a thin porcelain shell that has a natural, luminous appearance. The veneers are placed over the front surface of each affected tooth to restore a variety of cosmetic and functional tooth defects. Veneers are an excellent option for those who seek quick same-day solutions that create long-lasting, picture-perfect smiles. In many cases, veneers, Dr. Ivan HO may also use veneers as a cosmetic alternative to metal braces – to fix crooked or misaligned teeth. At Pro Smiles Orange County, we also recommend veneers for masking teeth stains, cosmetic restoration of teeth gaps, making your teeth appear straighter, and to adjust the size of your teeth to your gums and facial features.

What to Expect After a Dental Makeover?
The time required for recovery after a smile makeover varies for each patient – based upon the procedures that will be required for your complete dental makeover. Generally, most non-invasive procedures like teeth whitening, composite fillings, or veneers require no or minimal recovery time. However, it may take longer for your gums to heal after implants placement. Dr. Ivan Ho guides each patient on how to care for their restorations – and provides tips to ensure that their new smile lasts for a long time.
