What Treatments Does a Smile Makeover Include?

A healthy and beautiful smile is a sign of a healthy mouth. It will also boost your self-confidence. If you want to improve your smile for health or beauty purposes, you may need a smile makeover.

A smile makeover is a cosmetic process involving one or more dental procedures. Since every smile is unique, every treatment plan for a smile makeover varies. The dentist considers your appearance and facial features. These include the color, shape, length, and display of your teeth.



The amount of work you will need is unique to the severity of your condition. The process involves different procedures that include:

  • Dental alignments

  • Laser gum contouring

  • Teeth whitening

  • Tooth shaping

  • Teeth bonding

  • Veneers

  • Crowns

  • Dental implants

All the above procedures will transform your smile. It will be more aesthetically pleasing and boost your confidence.


Dental Alignment

Dental alignment is necessary before getting implants. Dental implants will not move, so your other teeth need to be in place before putting the implants in. Alignments will improve the appearance of crooked and misaligned teeth. They also remove gaps in teeth, making it better to chew and take care of your oral hygiene.

Typically, aligning teeth involves the use of traditional braces and clear aligners. Traditional braces use metal and wires. They are effective for severe misalignment. Meanwhile, clear aligners straighten your smile comfortably if you have mild or moderate alignment issues. Each set applies gentle pressure on target areas without the need for wires or brackets. You can remove them easily to take care of your oral hygiene or eat comfortably.


Laser Gum Contouring

Too much gum tissue can make your teeth look small. Laser gum contouring reshapes your gums to expose more enamel. It also removes damaged gum tissue, encouraging the regrowth of cells. It balances out your smile to give you more confidence.


Teeth Whitening


The procedure brightens your teeth to give you an appealing smile. It is an office or home procedure that uses bleach to remove discoloration or staining from teeth. Before whitening your teeth, speak to your dentist. They will explain teeth whitening and help you manage your expectations. Not all teeth turn white.


Tooth Shaping

It reshapes the tooth by filing it to remove the enamel. It is not painful, and it can produce immediate effects. It improves minor bite problems, bulges, or pits.


Teeth Bonding

It improves the appearance of gaps, chips, stains, or cracks. It is an in-office procedure involving the use of composite resin. It is the color of your teeth and bonds to them, improving the appearance of your smile.


Veneers and Crowns

These last longer than bonding and have a better appearance. Veneers and crowns are porcelain or resin and bond to the front of your teeth, changing their shape and color. They make you confident to smile. Crowns also help hold dental bridges and cover dental implants.


Dental Implants

These are the best treatment for missing teeth. They replace the entire tooth from the root to the crown. They stimulate the jawbone, promoting its health and helping you maintain a youthful appearance.
