Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Santa Maria cosmetic smile makeover

Hello Santa Barbara! Welcome to the King Dental Group dental blog. Let’s talk about smile transformations. Some Santa Barbara patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a unforgettable smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile redesign combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile metamorphosis. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include dental crown restorations, porcelain veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

I am Dr. Jon King. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Santa Barbara, California since 1967. Performing successful smile makeovers makes my profession extremely fulfilling. Patients who plan to receive a smile makeover should take their time choosing a dentist to perform it. I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs and wishes. During the consultation, I can tell you about my extensive experience and show you before and after pictures of satisfied patients.

When I design a custom smile makeover, I study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves extraordinary results and sets our practice apart.

Testimonials
  • Dr. Jim, Dr. Jon, and Peggy: I can’t tell you how happy Mother Mary is with her new smile. It was the best 88th birthday present she could have received. Not only does she now smile fully (hasn’t done that for as long as I can remember), but she looks ten years younger and says she feels at least ten years younger. She is one happy camper, and you guys are the absolute best. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    —Susan B.
  • I am having Dr. Jon King take out old fillings and replace them with new white ones. He is fast, friendly and really funny. I am an adult, but am seriously glad that he's a dad. His attitude towards his patients is kind and caring. I actually was laughing so hard today that I had to sit up in the middle of two replacement fillings. Even with the laughing and silliness I was out of there in an hour.
    —Cheryl G.
  • I have been going to King Dental for about 3 years now and I am so happy! They are so passionate and kind, and I always look forward to my appointments. Can't say enough good things about them!
