Smile Makeover From Billings, MT Dentist – Dr. Stuart
Are you living with a smile you hate? Let the caring and competent staff at Legacy Smiles help. We offer a large range of cosmetic and restorative treatments that, when combined, can revolutionize your smile. Let our Billings, MT dentist help you achieve a total and extreme smile makeover. Our smile makeover is a four step process:
Step 1: Schedule Your Consultation
The first thing you must do before receiving your smile makeover is schedule a consultation. Our Billings, MT dentist office offers free cosmetic consultations, so finding out what sort of treatments are available is free to you. You can schedule your consultation by calling (406) 794-3114 or by using our online form.
At your visit, Dr. Stuart will examine your teeth and gums and determine what needs to be done in order to achieve the perfect smile you desire. He will talk to you about your options and about what procedures he recommends. This talk will lead you into step two.
Step 2: Create Your Treatment Plan
Our office offers a wide variety of cosmetic services. Often, the doctor will recommend some restorative procedures before moving onto the cosmetic solutions. These restorative procedures may include fixing a cracked or decayed tooth with a crown, filling cavities, or installing a bridge or even a dental implant. These restorative procedures are designed to bring your smile back up to a fully functioning state. You will be able to chew, talk, and laugh again without any trouble from your teeth.
A smile makeover is really a technological tool that we use. In essence, what I'm doing is I'm literally taking a picture of the way the patient looks right now. Then I take that picture and I take it to my little wizbang, high-tech computer and I blow it up and I enhance it, I change it, I do whatever it's going to take to make that smile ideal. I'm working at a pixel level in many instances to change a person's smile so that I can give them, and when we're all done, I can then show them a before and an after of what we propose that their smile look like when we're all done.
Now it's a simulation, and always the end result looks better than the simulation, but the simulation can look pretty good. The old adage, a picture is worth a thousand words, people, when they can actually see what they're going to look like, it helps them make a decision. Also, I go to great lengths to help explain the process, why we're doing this, do we need some of that gum gingival contour or do we not. Sometimes we might need some on one tooth but not another. Helping them understand the whole process and actually getting them involved in it helps them make a decision.
Step 3: Preview Your Future Smile
After you have chosen your restorative and cosmetic services and created a plan of action with Dr. Stuart, you will be able to see what your smile will look like when you are finished. Even before beginning any of the treatments, we will be able to show you your madeover smile. We do this using digital imaging. We can input your current smile, add the cosmetic alterations, and display your future smile. This helps both you and the doctor know that you will be satisfied with the results.
We can also do diagnostic wax-ups to show what your new smile will be like. A wax-up is a model that is shaped into your future smile and then waxed on to your current smile. Just look into the mirror to see what you will soon look like. This is a great option for previewing your new smile for other people, though we recommend digital imaging for faster, more accurate results.
Step 4: Enjoy Your New Smile
The last step in the smile makeover process is to undergo treatment and then enjoy your new smile! Because we discuss and create a plan of action together, then preview what your new smile will look like, we guarantee that you will love the way you look. If you are ready to schedule your consultation, please call our Billings, MT dentist office at (406) 794-3114 or use our online form. We can’t wait to help you change your life for the better.

If your kids don’t like to go to the dentist, try Dr. Stuart. Our kids love him and his team. We just visited them yesterday for our 6 month checkup and cleaning, and Brianne was awesome! When I was a kid, the dental hygienist was a lumberjack – but not Brianne, she’s very professional and mindful of each of us. I have sensitive teeth and gums, and my visit with Dr. Stuart and his team was relaxing and easy. And the receptionist Lisa is so great, she always has a smile and positive attitude…so refreshing to have a dentist like Dr. Stuart. We have been going to Dr. Stuart for over 10 years, give him a try; you and your kids will notice the difference.
Our family found the way to Legacy Smiles in the midst of an ongoing yet undiagnosed dental crisis. Fortunately, Dr. Stuart aptly diagnosed the situation and promptly referred me to an oral surgeon to bring immediate relief. Since then, our family continues to be blessed by the genuine empathy and compassion Dr. Stuart has for his patients. He openly addresses any worries or fears we have, always in an informative and respectful manner. We encounter the same high standard of care with all of the staff at Legacy Smiles. Any treatment concerns or financial issues are courteously and promptly addressed and resolved. Dr. Stuart and Legacy Smiles provide the finest professional dental services with incomparable personal care!
Thank you, Dr. Stuart, for the senior discount on the dental work you have done for Vern and me. We’re also sending ‘kudos’ for you as well as your professional and competent staff – Lisa is a gem! It has been a pleasure interacting with all of you through the years. You and Cheryl are a good team… you’re ‘easy on the mouth’!
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service and experience I receive each time I come to your office. I appreciate the warm welcome, the time you spend explaining the procedures, and the personal touch you give. You always go the extra mile and have been a wonderful blessing to my family.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Stuart for approximately 10 years. First I established dental care, then I quickly realized my children were of age to begin dental care as well. Dr. Stuart and his team have always been amazing to work with. I have 3 children ages 14, 10, and 5. Not one of them is fearful or frightened to go to the dentist. In fact, my 10-year-old just realized this year that she is actually “getting a shot” when she comes in for dental maintenance. She got her first filling at age 4! We are treated professionally, and they are always accommodating to our scheduling needs. I have frequently recommended friends or family to Legacy Smiles and Dr. Stuart only to receive a personal thank you letter and gift as a thank you! Lisa is always on the ball with insurance claims and reminders. I just have to show up! Thank you Dr. Stuart and the team at Legacy Smiles! Your patient care and service has improved our dental health. We love you guys!

I love going to Legacy Smiles! All the staff are so friendly and make the experience a good one! I can’t wait for my next appointment!
I live in So. California and was once visiting Billings and needed to see a dentist. I tried out a few and finally settled on Dr. Stuart. He is simply the best! He extracted a lower wisdom tooth, and when the anesthetic wore off, there was no pain. Zero, zilch, nothing! He and his hygienist are also the only ones who know how to scale and plane my very sensitive mouth with no anesthetic and no pain. And all of them, including the office manager, are very pleasant and accommodating. I highly recommend them. And I, myself, scheduled my dental work for when I was going to be in Helena, MT, then drove 4 hours each way to see this very special dentist. Well worth your while to check him out.
