"Heidi is an excellent hygienist."- K. / Google / Jul 26, 2023
"I have always had issues with plaque build up and tartar. My dental cleanings involve heavy scraping and what seemed like forever in the dentist chair trying not to jump too high or out of the chair due to sensitivity. My last cleaning showed extensive plaque and tartar build up. I was offered this new treatment called Hybenx, which is like a liquid applied to your affected teeth. After 30 seconds, it literally softens the plaque and tartar so that the hygienist can then amazingly so gently just literally rinse and use the scaler/pick to slide it right off of your teeth. It does have a strong taste of vinegar but you can rinse after the 30 seconds and for me the vinegar taste was worth not going through pain! The hygienist then goes back around your teeth to make sure it is all removed. It was the easiest, painless cleaning I have ever had. And a much shorter time in the dentist chair. There is a private cost of $60.00 but so worth it for me. Also, there is a consent form to sign regarding side effects however I experienced no side effects at all. HIGHLY recommend trying this product if it is an option for you. I will be using this method for all my future cleanings!"- S.F. / Google / Jul 21, 2023

"X-Ray tech was pleasant and professional. Dr. Fagan was gentle and her explanations of needs etc were very detailed and comprehensive. Dental Hygienist Jessica was fantastic. So used to jumping out of the chair and white knuckles gripping the armrests. None of that. Cleaned up in no time!!"- W.S. / Google / Jul 14, 2023
A smile makeover can be helpful if you want to improve the overall look of your teeth or have multiple cosmetic or restorative concerns. You may be a good candidate for this treatment approach if you have one or more of the following dental issues:
- Stained or yellowed teeth
- Missing or severely damaged teeth
- Worn, broken, or cracked teeth
- Decayed or chipped teeth
- Misshapen or misaligned teeth
- Other dental concerns
Depending on your unique needs, your smile makeover may include treatments like dental bonding and contouring to repair minor imperfections or dental veneers to correct the shape and length of your teeth. Crowns may be used to rebuild damaged or decayed teeth, while bridges and dental implants may be fabricated to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Avon Dental Group, we feature an on-site dental lab and offer custom restorations so they blend with your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. Whatever your dental needs might be, our distinguished dentists will work closely with you to personalize your smile makeover plan and meet your concerns and goals.
The Smile Makeover Process
Since each smile makeover is customized and will vary among patients, our dentists will go over exactly what to expect throughout your treatment plan, including the number of visits you may need. We can help you plan out your appointment(s) to complete all of the steps in your makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures, although other sedation methods may be included if you will need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. At Avon Dental Group, we utilize the newest technologies and the finest dental materials when performing smile makeover treatments. We also proudly feature an on-site dental lab and offer custom restorations so they blend with your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. Throughout your smile makeover, our dedicated practitioners will take every measure to help you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have along the way.
After Your Care
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, it is important to maintain the health and look of your teeth by following a regular home oral care regimen (with flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily care, we recommend that you schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Avon Dental Group so our dentists can track your progress. With proper care and attention, the outcome of your smile makeover treatments can last for many years. Touch-up procedures every few years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your results and keep you feeling confident in your smile.
During your initial consultation, we will create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and your budget. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are typically not covered by dental insurance, but some procedures may be partially insured. Nonetheless, our office will talk to your insurance provider to determine your specific coverage and determine any out-of-pocket expenses before getting started. Avon Dental Group accepts a variety of flexible payment options and is proud to partner with CareCredit to bring no-interest financing to our patients.
