Over time, the teeth can lose their natural luster and, in many cases, begin to decay. This can result from a wide variety of factors, including the natural aging process, diet, trauma, and poor oral hygiene. With regular professional examinations and cleanings, decay and the onset of disease can be controlled and prevented. Unfortunately, many people find as they age that the state of their oral health is in decline and are unsure of what steps to take.
With a comprehensive smile makeover, the team at our Clarksville dental practice can restore the health and appearance of teeth that have experienced even extreme degradation. Through treatments that are tailored to the patient’s specific needs, Dr. Ribeiro can help individuals enjoy sound oral health and a beautiful, lasting smile.

Customizing a Smile Makeover Plan
One of the single most important aspects of a smile makeover is the initial consultation. During this meeting, you and Dr. Ribeiro will be able to discuss your goals in detail, go over your oral health, consider your treatment options, and share the information necessary for you to make an informed decision on your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Once our team has a thorough understanding of the state of your dental health and knows clearly what you would like to accomplish with your treatment, we can devise a course of action and make appropriate recommendations.
After a treatment plan has been outlined, our team will begin the process of planning your procedure. To accomplish this, we will take detailed digital images of the teeth and gums with a CT Scanner, take physical molds so that custom prosthetics can be designed and fabricated, and begin the process of preparing the teeth for subsequent procedures. We may be able to perform all of your procedures in a single sitting, but in many cases, a smile makeover requires several visits to our practice over the course of several months. This allows the teeth to heal in-between treatments, provides us with the ability to monitor your progress, and lets us prioritize treatments based on the impact they’ll have on your smile.
PATIENT’S REVITALIZED SMILE WITH DENTAL BRIDGES
When planning a smile makeover at our Clarksville dental practice, we tailor it specifically to the patient’s needs. No two full-mouth reconstructions are the same; the treatments that will be employed to help you realize your oral health and cosmetic goals will differ from other patients. That being said, there are a number of different treatment options that are commonly utilized for smile makeovers, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Dental bonding
- Teeth whitening
- Laser gum reshaping
- Inlays and onlays
- Orthodontics Endodontics
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, we will likely recommend implant-supported dentures; if you suffer from malocclusion and decay, we may utilize orthodontic appliances, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers. Only after evaluating your oral health can we determine the best way to satisfy your needs.
Candidates for Full-mouth Reconstruction
Individuals with minor cosmetic flaws or oral health issues can typically have their needs met through a relatively simple treatment or combination of treatments. People suffering from extreme dental decay or disease are best suited for a complete smile makeover. Even the most badly damaged smiles can be restored through full-mouth reconstruction. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, or your teeth are so badly damaged that they no longer provide proper function, we can help give you your life back by restoring the health, function, and appearance of your teeth. Quite simply, the results of a complete smile makeover can be life changing.
