During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that made your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at Contemporary Dental Arts is a unique treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the look of your teeth and your general oral health. A smile makeover may consist of teeth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), veneers, straightening, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include restorations such as bridges or crowns to fill in gaps in your smile. If you want to know more about making over your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with dentist Dr. Lauren Shanard at her office in Williston, VT to receive your custom treatment plan.

"Coming from CT, I had a beautiful smile created from a great dentist in New Haven several years ago. I moved to New Hampshire and looked for the best to take over care. It just so happened that my New Haven dr traveled from CT to VT specifically to have HER OWN smile created by Dr Shanard and highly recommended Dr Shanard. She was absolutely right. Dr Shanard is very meticulous in perfecting your look. She is extremely patient and caring. She and her excellent staff take the time to explain thoroughly procedures, and expectations. I can’t say enough about Contemporary Dental Arts"- L.G. / Google / Mar 27, 2019

A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic or restorative procedures. Dr. Shanard will personalize your smile makeover treatment to fit your goals and concerns, but it might include teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that may be included in your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may also be used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Contemporary Dental Arts, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your natural teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Shanard will have to ensure that your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.
What To Expect
Each smile makeover is unique, so Dr. Shanard will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. She can work with you to plan out your appointment(s) to complete all of the steps in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, but other sedation options may be suggested if you need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Shanard along with her team will be available to answer any questions you may have to help you feel more comfortable.
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily maintenance, you need to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Contemporary Dental Arts so Dr. Shanard can monitor your progress. With proper care, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Shanard during your visits.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Shanard can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. She can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we take, like low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance, although some restorations may be partly insured. Our office will contact your insurance carrier to ascertain your exact coverage and personal expenses.
