During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that made your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at The Dental Office Encino is a custom 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 might consist of dental veneers, teeth straightening, cosmetic bonding, or replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include restorative procedures such as bridges or crowns to correct missing teeth. If you want to know more about rejuvenating your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with board-certified dentists Drs. Alan and Yonatan Howard at their office in Encino, CA to receive your customized smile makeover plan.

"State of the art facility with an amazing staff. They really make an effort and put so much care into getting to know you and provide quality care."- J.T. / Yelp / Aug 04, 2018
"I called in the morning after I had an accident that broke off both front teeth. The staff was so caring and understood the urgency so they fit me in that day (within a few hours). Dr. Howard immediately placed composites and shaped and sculpted teeth from me so I didn't feel pressure about my permanent fix options. He felt that if he talked about options and price while I had teeth missing, I would jump at it because of how desperate I would be to fix what is a pretty important feature of my face (especially being the front teeth). He also didn't charge me for the composites and just asked that I think about what I really wanted to do. He was very sweet and compassionate. He provided his number if I had concerns and even asked that my Orthodontist cousin give him a call so he can explain the breaks and the cosmetic/treatment options. His friendly staff and himself gave several follow up calls to make sure I was not in any pain. I am happy to have found a new dentist and have been referring them to my clients since."- A.M. / Yelp / Jul 13, 2018
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic procedures. Dr. Alan or Yonatan Howard will personalize your smile makeover program to meet your goals and concerns. Cosmetic procedures that could be in your plan are bonding, contouring, or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth and to mask minor gaps between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be suggested to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At The Dental Office Encino, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your other teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Howard will have to make certain 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 personalized, so Dr. Howard will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you require. He can work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, although other sedation methods may be suggested if you will need help relaxing due to dental anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Howard along with his team will be happy to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
As soon as your smile makeover is done, 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 home maintenance, you need to attend dental examinations and cleanings at The Dental Office Encino so Dr. Howard can check your progress. With proper care, the results of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years might help to refresh your smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Howard at your visits.
In your initial consultation, Dr. Howard can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. He 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 plans, although some restorations could be partly insured. We will talk to your insurance company to ascertain your specific coverage and personal expenses.
