What Is a Smile Makeover and Am I a Good Candidate?

When your teeth and your smile look great, you just feel more confident and more attractive. The fact is, though, perfect smiles almost never happen naturally. Pretty much everyone needs a little help to make their teeth and smile look their best. Sometimes, all it takes is a professional teeth whitening treatment or maybe a crown or veneer to correct a minor cosmetic problem. But often, we need a combination of treatments to correct multiple issues. That’s when a smile makeover can help.

At Couture Smiles Dental Group, we offer complete smile makeovers customized for every patient’s unique oral health needs and treatment goals. A smile makeover can dramatically improve the way your smile looks, and it can also correct flaws that can have an impact on your oral health and your bite mechanics. The key to getting the best results is to start with a comprehensive plan of care to help you reach your goals one step at a time.

How a smile makeover “works”

Smile makeovers begin with an in-depth evaluation of your teeth, gums, bite pattern, overall oral health, and, of course, your own concerns about the way your teeth and smile look. Depending on the issues you’d like to have corrected, we might take X-rays or impressions during your visit, and we’ll also perform an evaluation of your teeth, gums, and bite mechanics.

Next, we’ll sit down with you to talk about your treatment options and how we can create a care plan that's designed to address all your needs. Smile makeovers can include both cosmetic treatments focused solely or primarily on improving the way your teeth and smile look, and they can include restorative treatments to improve the function as well as the appearance of teeth that are damaged. Sometimes, multiple treatments can be performed during a single office visit, while other treatments might require a series of visits. The number of visits and treatments you'll need will, of course, depend on what your treatment goals are.

Aside from making your smile look great (and improving your oral health too), one of the biggest benefits of a smile makeover is its flexibility. Smile makeovers can include many types of treatments, including:
