Smile Makeover Reviews
"Dr. Davis and Nicole are very thorough and I have been very impressed with their expertise! Have been to a lot of the so-called "celebrity dentists" throughout the country and these dentists are not near as thorough as Dr.Davis has been. All they want to do is slap some veneers, take your check and push you out the door! I feel fortunate to have discovered Dr. Davis and I feel very confident that he can handle all my dentistry needs. "- C. / Demandforce / May 05, 2014
"I've gone to Dr. Spiker for 9 years now and I recommend him highly. His staff is great, as well. Mary Jo, Liz, Julie, and Nicole are all wonderful to deal with. They do a super job with kindness, patience, and HUMOR. They're the best and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I've had so many compliments on my smile and my teeth since I went to Dr. Spiker at Cosmetic Dental Associates. My smile is my first impression and is very important to me--I'm happy with the smile they gave me!! :-) "- C. / Demandforce / Jul 15, 2014
"Great experience! A lot of people think they only do cosmetic dentistry, but not true! I went for a regular exam and teeth cleaning. The office is beautiful and very clean. The equipment they are using looks very high-tech. They can take panoramic X-rays, and can also take HiDef pictures of your teeth and then show you a close-up picture of each of your teeth while you are still laying in the chair using a flat panel display on a swing arm. The wait time was minimal and the hand-offs from reception to dentist to hygienist were fast and smooth. The best thing so far is the staff. They are very friendly and don't seem like they are in a hurry. They take their time, are very thorough, and make an effort to slow down and explain things. Dr. Riley did my exam...he's a cool guy and made me feel comfortable. Don't feel like you HAVE to get Dr. Davis. They work together as a team and you can't go wrong with either one. I usually FEAR going to the dentist, but I really want to take care of my teeth and this place makes me feel right at home. Highly recommend!"- S.M. / Yelp / Dec 14, 2016
"Only one of a handful of dentists in the country that is accredited from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Not only is Spiker and staff masters of Cosmetics they also do great General dentistry as well. This practice is a family environment and the staff is wonderful and easy to communicate with. If your looking for an all around great practice that can handle cosmetics and family dentistry, book your appointment asap."- N.D. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"Dr Davis gave me my smile back. His staff is outstanding! They ask about your concerns and then address them and communicate them throughout the exam. This is top notch professionalism! "- G. / Demandforce / Nov 02, 2014
Who is a good candidate?
A smile makeover can be helpful if you want to improve the look of your teeth, or if you want several cosmetic or restorative procedures. Dr. Davis will customize your smile makeover treatment to fit your concerns and goals, but it may consist of teeth whitening to correct discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic treatments that may be part of your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to improve the length and shape of your teeth, and to cover minor gaps between teeth. Dental restorations (crowns and bridges) may be used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we offer custom-made restorations to ensure they blend with your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing any cosmetic procedures, Dr. Davis will have to make certain that your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems such as a dental malocclusion or gum disease, this will have to be treated first.
What Can I Expect During my Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation?
During the consultation, Dr. Davis or Dr. Guerre will explain the recommended procedures for your smile makeover. Using special 3D imaging technology, we can show each patient what the procedures will look like after completing them. Together, you will work closely with Dr. Davis or Dr. Guerre to create a personalized smile makeover treatment plan. Once we have created your smile makeover plan, our friendly staff can schedule your upcoming appointment(s). Sometimes, patients may need help with their overall oral health before receiving cosmetic treatments. We will need to treat gum disease or any cavities before performing your cosmetic procedures.
What happens after my Smile Makeover?
Based on the type of procedure(s), like no-prep veneers, tooth bonding, laser gum sculpting, teeth whitening, or Invisalign, patients receive personalized and detailed aftercare instructions. You should follow a good home oral health care routine that includes brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash to maintain the results of your smile makeover. Additionally, patients should continue to come to the dentist twice a year or more for their regular dental exam and cleaning. Proactive dental care will help keep your smile healthy, luminous, and beautiful.
How much do smile makeovers cost?
Most cosmetic dental procedures are not covered by insurance, but our front office team will call to see if they can cover any costs. The cost of a smile makeover will depend on the procedures we select. During your consultation, we create a detailed treatment plan and discuss the estimated costs and financing options.
