About Smile Makeovers
A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic dental procedures to improve the overall shape and aesthetic of the gums and teeth for a vibrant smile. With various restorative dental techniques and modern technology, teeth that are cracked, chipped, misaligned, or discolored can be repaired. This procedure can also replace metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings for a more natural feel and appearance. At Emigh Dental Care in Long Beach, CA, our dentists do all they can to show patients what their potential results will amount to with advanced 3D imaging software and past patient photos. A smile makeover will be different for everyone but may include:
- dental implants
- full or partial dentures
- crowns and bridges
- porcelain veneers
- tooth-colored fillings and onlays
- orthodontic treatment
- teeth whitening treatment
Drug and alcohol abuse can be devastating to the teeth and gums, resulting in pain, broken teeth, poor appearance, and a lack of self-confidence. When we can help get patients out of pain or any emergency needs right away, it lets them focus on their rehab treatment. We can then help do the minor treatments, stabilize their oral health, and help make their smile look better so they have that added self-esteem which is often times so important in helping overcome addiction.
At Emigh Dental Care in Long Beach, CA, we know the importance of working and communicating with rehab centers about what we can and cannot give patients that are undergoing or have undergone rehab.
We take pride in helping people feel better about themselves and improving their lives through a non-judgemental and supportive approach.
"My family and I have been going to Emigh Dental Care for years. EVERYONE is very courteous, helpful, and professional. All their equipment is state of the art. I have had terrific Dr. Bob and Dr. Pat as my dentists. My son schedules his appointments with Dr. Todd -- who he thinks is great! Yesterday I was introduced to Dr. Le. She is a wonderful addition to the Team!! I can't say enough about my super hygienist, Andrea! Emigh Dental Care is the whole package!!!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018
"Best dentists we have ever had. Our whole family goes there. My 7 year old daughter was petrified of the dentist after a bad experience with another dentist. We switched to the Dr. Emighs and now she is 9 years old and looks forward to going. Tammy is her favorite, but Jade and everyone is fantastic!!"- T.M. / Yelp / Apr 24, 2018
"Broke a veneer recently & made an appt. @ Emigh Dental based on all the positive reviews - the reviews don't lie - this office is great & Dr. Todd is just the best! Ended up having him replace all 6 of my prior veneers + do 2 more. The difference between my 'old' (if 7 years is old) & new veneers is like night & day! Huge relief to have found such a talented dentist - HIGHLY recommended!"- J.L. / Yelp / Apr 21, 2018

What to Expect
During the initial exam, our dentists will explain the recommended procedures for the smile makeover. Using digital imaging, our dentists will show their patients the potential impact of the procedures to help them determine each smile makeover treatment plan. Once the patient and our dental team have decided on the ideal smile makeover plan, patients can schedule their appointment(s) for the procedures.
Our dentists will give their patients aftercare instructions based on the procedure or procedures being performed. In general, it is important that patients follow a good home oral health care regimen, including brushing, flossing, and mouthwash to maintain the results of their smile makeover. Additionally, patients should continue to come to our practice twice a year, or as recommended by our dentists, for regular dental exams and cleaning. Proactive dental care will help their smile remain healthy, strong, and beautiful.
