How Can You

Dr. Shannon P. Patterson understands that each patient has unique needs and cosmetic goals. After your smile makeover evaluation, which includes a discussion of what you like and dislike about your smile, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
A Range of Options
Our patients' priorities are our priorities. Whether you are seeking the quickest treatment options or a more affordable plan to fit your budget, we can recommend the dentistry treatments that will help you achieve your goals.

a Smile Makeover?
A complete smile makeover involves more than one treatment to address cosmetic dental flaws. Most patients who wish to improve the appearance of their smiles are good candidates for this type of treatment plan. However, if they have oral health problems, such as cavities or missing teeth, these will need to be addressed with restorative dentistry treatment before we can start your smile makeover plan.
Elements of Your Smile That Can Be Addressed
Uneven or Excess Gum Tissue
There is no doubt that the gums play an important role in the appearance of your smile. If your gum line is uneven or drops down too low on your teeth, we can perform a laser gum contouring procedure at our dental office.
Noticeable Metal Fillings
Silver fillings can be noticeable when you are laughing and talking. We can replace your silver fillings with beautiful and natural-looking white fillings to completely rejuvenate your smile.

"Friendly Atmosphere and Superior Professional Service"
When we moved from Annandale, VA (suburb of Washington, DC) I was expecting a reduction in quality of dental service, but southern hospitality would most likely result in a friendlier atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised to find Brookhaven Dental Center provided both a friendly atmosphere and superior professional service than we had in a large city. We have been a customer for over 12 years and have no regrets choosing Brookhaven Dental Center for our dental needs.

Do I Qualify for a Smile Makeover?
Because smile makeovers are custom designed for each case, the treatment is accessible to most patients. Some factors that can improve your candidacy include:
Be a Non-Smoker
Smoking is harmful to your oral health and can affect the ability of your teeth and gums to heal. Most of the treatments involved in a smile makeover are minimally invasive, but you should still disclose to your dentist if you have a smoking habit so that they can design the best possible plan for you.
Ready to Invest in Your Smile
Because smile makeovers are cosmetic procedures, most of the treatments involved are not usually covered by dental insurance. We work with patients to make treatment as affordable as possible and offer payment plans, but you should expect some out-of-pocket costs.
Don't Let Indecision Stop You from Taking the First Step
Many patients simply don't take the first step towards a smile makeover: an initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist.
At our office, patients can undergo a smile makeover evaluation to learn more about the treatments that are right for them. During this appointment, we can discuss the cost, timeline, benefits, and drawbacks of each treatment. Know that there are no obligations or commitments required at this visit. After your consultation with us, you will have the information you need to decide if you want to undergo any, some, or all of the treatments recommended in your smile makeover plan.
It is important to keep in mind that patients must have good oral health before undergoing a smile makeover treatment. If needed, Dr. Patterson offers dental implants, fillings, gum disease treatment, root canal therapy, and a range of other restorative treatments so we can improve the health, function, and appearance of your smile.
"Always Polite and Cheerful"
I've been going to Brookhaven Dental Center for several years and am very pleased with the care I receive there. The staff is always polite and cheerful. I have never had to wait past my scheduled appointment time to be seen. They are thorough and caring and I will continue to use this dental center for all my dental needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does treatment cost?
Concerns about pricing are one of the most common smile makeover questions we hear at our office. Because smile makeovers are custom-designed treatment plans for individual patients, costs can vary widely. The cost of the plan will depend on the kinds of procedures you choose to undergo. We will work with you to make the treatment as affordable as possible, and we are confident that the long-term investment in your smile will be well worth it.
What are the risks?
Again, because a smile makeover is uniquely designed for each patient, the risks will be different from case to case. However, because the treatments involved are purely cosmetic, it can be said that most smile makeovers do not involve any serious risk.
How long will it take?
Depending on the treatments involved in your plan, a smile makeover can take as little as two visits or up to several months. Procedures like teeth whitening or fillings can be completed in a single day, while something like Invisalign will take a longer time.
What kind of dentist should I choose?
When you decide to undergo a smile makeover, it is important to trust your smile to the right dentist. Choose an experienced cosmetic dentist who will listen to your needs and custom design your treatment plan. Dr. Patterson has over two decades of cosmetic dentistry experience and makes a point to develop a personal, lasting relationship with every one of his patients.
