Makeover your smile and transform your life with exceptional care and advanced dentistry
We take our role as The International Center for Dental Excellence very seriously. Our team, led by cosmetic dentist Dr. Yolanda Cintron, understands the importance of a beautiful, functional smile as it relates to your overall health, quality of life, and well-being.
Just as each guest to our center is unique, the smile makeover process that follows is also one of a kind. Generally, though, there are some aspects of the process of enhancing the appearance and restoring the structure of the teeth and gums that are universal, which pertain to all of the individuals that we partner with, including:
- The all-important smile consultation – We get to know you as a person beyond your teeth and gums — this knowledge informs our care recommendations. An evaluation includes physically examining the teeth, gums, and other oral structures as well as discussing your personal preferences, lifestyle and behavioral habits, and goals. We can also show you images of individuals we have really worked with through their “before” and “after” photos. These individuals often have life-affirming and transformative experiences at our center. See, a smile is not just a smile. It correlates with our self-confidence and emotional health and what we want to project to the outside world. We also encourage you to show us photos of smiles that you admire. What do you like about that person’s teeth? Or gums? Sometimes, it is easier to show than verbalize what you would like to see in your dream smile.
- No-stress dentistry – All patients will enjoy an inviting, calming, friendly, and hassle-free experience at our center regardless of the type of procedures or the number of treatments on the horizon. We have invested in many technologies and the training to support such capabilities, making this highly satisfying experience possible; for instance, we offer advanced sedation. Even those visitors who have extreme dental anxiety or are facing a series of complex procedures can relax in the treatment chair, thanks to intravenous (IV) sedation. If financial barriers are a source of stress and stand in the way of your goal smile, we can discuss flexible options such as financing through CareCredit®.
What treatments are included in a smile makeover?
After we get to know you and your situation, we may find that you are an excellent candidate for any number of treatment options to makeover your teeth and gums in a way that looks natural and that restores health and structure as needed. On one end of the spectrum is in-office teeth whitening, where we can make a tremendous difference in the appearance of your teeth in around an hour and in a single visit.
Conversely, more extensive treatment options include restorations such as non-metal on lays (partial crowns), full-coverage crowns, or modern tooth replacement with dental implants. These procedures may be combined with gum or bone grafting to rebuild tissues lost to periodontal disease or bone resorption. Dental bonding and veneers also present ways to dramatically transform the appearance of your teeth by adding height to worn teeth, closing unsightly gaps, and eliminating chips or other surface and contour irregularities.
