"Dr. Patel and Staff have been very professional, kind and caring through all visits/procedures. I highly recommend them to everyone."- L.M. / Google / Dec 09, 2021
"• Wish I had the mindset earlier in life to take personal time out for myself and develop a routine Floss-Floss-Floss. • Went every 6 months to the dentist and did what I thought was right. Was comfortable with where I was and felt I was receiving the best care. Then I came across Dr. Patel and found the care could be even better. His artistry and technology make him superior in the care he provides. • I decided to become engaged in my dental journey and make a commitment on my part for Dr. Patel to help me. • My TMJ disorder used to cause headaches, popping in my jaw and pain. One day I woke up and realized I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen in days because I was finally feeling relief. I noticed that my overall quality of life began to change, and I no longer felt the stress and pain I had experienced for so long. • I think for everyone, money is a factor when it comes to taking care of themselves. I decided to invest in myself, and it has become the best gift I could’ve received. • Time is not a factor, and you are the priority at Dr. Patel’s office. The saying “Love the one you’re with” comes to mind every time I call the office or go in for an appointment. Each staff member makes you feel as though you’re the only one present and they’ve got all the time in the world for you. • I challenge any other doctor to have the same passion for dentistry and compassion for their patients as Dr. Patel does. If you go to Dr Patel, you will never change dentists again!"- D.B. / Google / Dec 06, 2021

A smile makeover can help if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth or if you require several restorative or cosmetic procedures to reach your end goal. Dr. Patel will customize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your concerns and aims. Your smile makeover could consist of teeth whitening to correct stains and discoloration on your enamel, porcelain veneers, and dental bonding and contouring to improve the shape and length of your teeth and cover small gaps. Dental restorations (dental crowns and dental bridges) may be needed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At our facility, we utilize custom-made restorations so that they blend in with your regular teeth for a seamless finish.
Before you have cosmetic procedures, Dr. Patel will need to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems, like a misaligned bite or gum disease, then these will need to be addressed first.
What To Expect
Every smile makeover is customized to the individual patient so Dr. Patel will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, including how many appointments you may need. He will help you map your appointment(s) to complete each one of the procedures of your smile makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures; however, other sedation choices can be included if you require help relaxing due to dental fears or anxieties. Throughout your smile makeover, Dr. Patel and his team will be accessible to answer any questions you may have.
Once your smile makeover is finished, you should maintain the health and appearance of your teeth with a good home oral care routine by brushing and flossing every day. In addition to everyday care, you should make appointments for annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at our practice so Dr. Patel can monitor your oral health. With appropriate maintenance, the results of your smile makeover should last for many years. Touch-up treatments every few years, like teeth whitening, may help to refresh your results. Veneers and restorations may also need to be repaired or replaced, which can all be discussed with Dr. Patel in your appointments.
At your consultation, Dr. Patel will help develop a smile makeover that fits both your needs and your budget. He can estimate the cost of your treatment plan and explain payment methods we accept, including medical financing. The cosmetic procedures in a smile makeover are typically not covered by insurance, but some restorations might be partially covered. A member of our team will call your insurance provider to determine your precise coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
