During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that made your teeth look less than ideal. A smile makeover at LifeTime Smiles of OC is a personalized treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the appearance of your teeth — and your general oral health. A smile makeover could consist of tooth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), cosmetic veneers, straightening, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include dental restorations such as bridges or crowns to replace a missing tooth or teeth. If you want to know more about improving your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with experienced dentist Dr. Kareem Abraham at his office in Santa Ana, CA to receive your personalized treatment plan.
"Dr. Abraham and his staff are great! Not only have they seen me, but our three kids (ages 8,8 & 9, yes twins) and our grandma. We've all seen dentists that are highly recommended, from Corona Del Mar to San Jose as we use to live in Silicon Valley, but I can honestly say that Sr.Abraham and his staff (from dental hygienists, front office staff to the Doc himself) are the best I've seen. They are obviously a for profit business, but they go out of their way to make sure you get more value than what you would ever expect. Dr.Kareem is above all, concerned with the overall health of our entire family. He does things like screen his patients for different issues, as a precaution and doesn't charge extra, just to make sure he has a good overall picture of your health and that you're well informed. I think the biggest thing though is everyone in our family likes going to the dentist because it's always a good experience. The doc is wonderful with our kids and they really like him. They've never complained of anything and that's great! I just recently found out that Dr.Kareem was listed as OC's top 10 doctors in Orange Coast magazine and he didn't pay them a dime, it was a total surprise to him."- S.B. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2019
"This dentist office is the best available. I have been a patient here since 1996. The staff is knowledgeable, reliable & personable. I won't go anywhere else for dental care. Top Notch!"- A.M. / Yelp / Oct 07, 2019
"Such a kind and diligent dental team! The entire staff makes you feel welcomed and important. With Dr. Abraham's skills you know your smile is in the right hands"- M.A. / Yelp / Sep 26, 2019
"I have always hated going to the dentist! Since I was a kid I remember getting so much anxiety when it was time to go and that carried away over as an adult. It had been a really long time since I have been. At least 3 years because my last visit was terrible. After talking with my friend who recommended this office I got up the courage to make an appointment and go. The staff here is so friendly and immediately put me at ease. The new patient process was so simple and I was brought back within 15 mins of being there. Dr Abraham even came out and introduced himself which was another thing that made me so comfortable. My hygienist was Quinn and she was amazing. She took her time and explained everything she was going to do. She was gentle and took into consideration my past experiences. After my cleaning Dr. Abraham came in and chatted about what I wanted to change or get right moving forward with dental care. The entire staff is amazing. Ana, Naomi, Raquel, Quinn and Dr Abraham have really made feel so much better about staying consistent with my preventative care. Not only to have a nice smile but to keep up with overall help. Much thanks to the team"- M.B. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2019

A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple restorative or cosmetic procedures. Dr. Abraham will personalize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your goals and concerns, but it might consist of teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that might be part of your plan are bonding and contouring, or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be needed to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At LifeTime Smiles of OC, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Abraham will have to make sure 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 customized so Dr. Abraham will discuss exactly what you can expect throughout your treatment such as the number of visits you might require. He can work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each one of the procedures in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments; however, other sedation choices may be suggested if you require help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Abraham, along with his group, will be accessible to answer any questions that you may have.
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth by sticking to a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with everyday maintenance, you need to make appointments for dental examinations and cleanings at LifeTime Smiles of OC so Dr. Abraham can track your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the outcomes of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years such as teeth whitening might help to refresh your results. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Abraham during your visits.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Abraham 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 the payment options we take such as low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by insurance, although, some restorations might be partly insured. A member of our team will contact your insurance provider to ascertain your precise coverage and personal expenses.
