"Had a very fast, and great experience in Dr. Toms office. Everyone was friendly, and very helpful."- T.R. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2020
"I have extreme anxiety and fear about the dentist. I had a lower molar that had been troubling me for years but no dentist could ever get it to numb enough to fix it due to my resistance to local anesthetics. Dr. Toms used sedation dentistry techniques to correct the issues with my tooth and I can honestly say it was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I highly recommend his practice especially if you deal with anxiety over dentistry work. He and his staff were extremely friendly and made me feel like I was there only concern. The procedure was painless (although I must admit I dont think I was even awake for most of it) and just a few hours later I can acually chew again with a tooth I haven't been able to use for years. Thank you Dr. Toms!"- J.G. / Google / Feb 12, 2020

Best Candidates for Smile Makeover
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic or restorative procedures performed at one time. Dr. Toms will personalize your smile makeover treatment to fit your goals and concerns, but it might include teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that may be included in 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 used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D., we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your natural teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Toms will have to ensure that 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 with Smile Makeover
Each smile makeover is unique. Dr. Toms will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require and if sedation may be needed. He can work with you to plan out your appointment(s) to complete all of the steps in your makeover. Local numbing injections may be needed before a few of your treatments, but other sedation options may be suggested if you need help relaxing during extensive treatments or dental work anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Toms along with his group will be available to answer any questions or help you feel more comfortable.
Smile Makeover Follow-Up
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily maintenance, you need to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. and we can monitor your progress. With proper care, 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 smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired in several years, which will all be discussed with Dr. Toms during your visit.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Toms 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 payment options we take, like low-interest medical financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance, although some restorations may be partly insured. Our office will contact your insurance carrier to ascertain your exact coverage and personal expenses.
