A smile makeover typically involves two or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. They are designed to correct multiple issues, which may include teeth that are too small, teeth that are too large, teeth with gaps between them, teeth that are crooked, or teeth that are stained.
In addition to making you look more attractive, a smile makeover can actually help you feel more confident.
To best understand how a smile makeover can change your smile, it’s important to understand the various cosmetic dentistry treatments that go into the smile makeover process. When you visit our office for a smile makeover consultation, where we’ll take a look at your teeth and gums, then we’ll work with you to determine your smile makeover goals and the best treatments to achieve them.
Some of the smile makeover treatments we might recommend include:
Porcelain veneers are a popular smile makeover treatment for many dental patients. They can make teeth look straighter, whiter, and more attractive.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain, which are bonded to the fronts of teeth. They are custom-made for each individual patient. As a result, they are natural-looking tooth coverings that provide many benefits.

Dental implants are a special kind of dental restoration that can replace one or more missing teeth. They are very strong and will last for a lifetime when cared for properly. They’re also very natural looking and can be made to look very life-like.
With Invisalign treatment, you can correct a number of smile imperfections.
Invisalign orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. These aligners are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, making them both comfortable and safe. There are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth, and they allow you to remove your aligners to brush, floss and eat.
Teeth whitening treatments can brighten your smile by several shades to get rid of stains and discoloration. These treatments can be done in-office or at home. Professional teeth whitening treatments use stronger whitening agents than over-the-counter products and can give you the desired results real quick.
Many patients choose dental bonding as a quick and affordable smile makeover treatment. It involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of the teeth. The material is applied and shaped over the teeth, creating a straighter, more uniform smile. The resin material is then hardened with a special light, which bonds the material to the teeth. This material is durable and can last for over ten years.
