What Is Smile Design?

Smile design is a very specialized service that requires extensive training and an in-depth understanding of form and function. As “smile consultants,” we can identify the optimal path forward to an attractive, cohesive smile that works well and looks fantastic.

What Can a Smile Makeover Address?

A smile makeover is tailored to your individual needs. Its purpose is to enhance the appearance and/or function of your smile. A smile makeover can address any one of the following concerns:

  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Stained, dark, or dull teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Prominent gums or a “gummy smile”
  • Unhappiness with the appearance of your teeth or smile

A smile makeover combines several cosmetic and restorative dental procedures and treatments to help you achieve your goals. A bright, evenly spaced, and aligned smile can make you look years younger and feel more confident socially and professionally.

Smile Makeover Treatment Options

A smile makeover may consist of any combination of the following:

  • Orthodontics (e.g., Invisalign® clear braces) to straighten and align your teeth.
  • “Instant orthodontics” such as porcelain veneers or crowns to fix minor chips, cracks, worn teeth, or misaligned teeth.
  • Teeth whitening to brighten your smile.
  • Dental bonding to close small spaces between your teeth.
  • Dental bridgework and/or dental implants to replace missing teeth.
  • Laser gum recontouring to make your teeth appear longer and your gums less prominent.

As a courtesy, we offer pre-treatment computer imaging as part of your initial consultation. This technology allows you to preview your smile makeover before starting treatment!

Porcelain Veneers & Dental Bonding

As part of your smile makeover, we might recommend porcelain veneers and/or dental bonding to repair and restore teeth. Porcelain veneers are biocompatible restorations made from tooth-colored porcelain ceramic. They are durable and natural-looking. Typically, porcelain veneers are used on the fronts of the most visible teeth to create an even, white smile.

Dental bonding is made from a composite resin that can also be tinted to match your teeth coloring. Dental bonding is commonly used as filling for cavities as well as to fill cracks and small gaps in teeth. Composite resin bonding can also be used to cover the front of teeth like porcelain veneers. They are not quite as durable as veneers but very cost-effective.

How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are one of our most popular options for teeth restoration. A porcelain veneer makeover is relatively easy and virtually painless. The veneer placement process is simple and usually involves two to four visits over the course of six to eight weeks. (Time of treatment can vary based on the complexity of your makeover.)

The process usually begins with a computerized “mock-up” of your smile to give you an idea of the results before we begin. Then, we take digital scans and photos to send to the lab for fabrication of a “wax-up,” which we use to design your smile and temporary veneers.

The next step is to prepare the teeth for the veneers; this may entail removing a small amount of tooth structure in order for the veneer to fit correctly and comfortably. At the conclusion of this appointment, you will leave with your new smile in temporary veneers. After several weeks of trying them out, you will return for the placement of the final restorations.

We ensure a perfect fit and total satisfaction with the comfort and appearance of your new smile.
