How to Get a Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is a procedure for improving the presence of a smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry services, such as dental veneers, tooth implants, teeth whitening and composite bonding.

A smile is the best thing anyone can wear!

We all want a perfect smile, and options are available in modern dentistry. A makeover can be custom created, matching facial shape, tooth size, gum tissue, tooth color and lip contour. A dentist will work with a plan, assuring that patient concerns are addressed and creating the ideal look.

By using an advanced 3D imaging system, an exact model of the teeth is created. The image of the new smile can be viewed even before the procedure, giving the candidate a say in what features are wanted.

Smile makeover procedures

There are various smile makeover treatments available, depending on the condition of your teeth.


Porcelain veneers are a process that covers the cracks, uneven spacing, chips, crooked teeth and irremovable stains. At times, some patients will use porcelain veneers to make teeth appear more substantial. They can also elongate the teeth, making them appear more natural.


Another cosmetic dentistry treatment is a porcelain crown. Restoring both functionality and beauty, a crown provides cover to chipped or severely decayed teeth. A dental crown, like a veneer, provides an even feel. The difference between a veneer and a crown is that a crown surrounds the entire tooth.

Implants and bridges

Missing any teeth? Bridges and dental implants can provide an improved aesthetic look while giving structural support. Implants are a durable option for cosmetic dentistry. A metal post is implanted under the gums, then secured to the jawbone.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments can correct discolored or stained teeth, restoring their shine and brilliance. As we age, teeth can become stained by coffee, wine, tea, and smoking. Bleaching is the most popular tooth whitening option. Patients may opt for laser, pen, gels, or strip treatments. However, none compare to custom take home whitening options, consisting of a medical-grade bleaching agent and individually fitted to the teeth.

Gum sculpting

Cosmetic dentists are performing gingival sculpting, more commonly known as gum sculpting. This is a minor procedure that only requires one visit and takes about one hour. Gums are injected with a local anesthetic, and a soft tissue laser is used to trim away and re-contour the excess tissue around the gums. This technique brings a beautiful look to the mouth by having the teeth appear to be longer.

The impact

There is no doubt that a smile makeover alters the way you look and can even improve your mental outlook. Feeling good about a new smile brings that natural confidence front and center. Learn more about smile makeover treatments by visiting our website.
