While few people have a truly perfect smile, sometimes we discover that our smiles have a few more imperfections than we’re strictly comfortable with. If this is the case a simple restoration or two may not be sufficient, instead you may be looking for a complete smile makeover.  Using a number of restorative, reconstructive, and cosmetic techniques they can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. If you have questions about a smile makeover and what it can do for you, read through this guide.


What Does It Mean To Get A Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is what happens when your dentist uses multiple procedures to produce a smile that is stunning, white, and beautiful.  There are multiple cosmetic options that are available, all of which can improve the appearance, and the function, of your teeth and smile.  The following sections cover the various types of treatment available.


Teeth Whitening

There is a perception that white teeth are healthy teeth, even though staining doesn’t necessarily indicate there’s anything wrong with your teeth.  What is undeniable, however, is that a bright white smile gets a positive reaction from people, making them a popular part of a smile makeover.


Cosmetic Bonding

Your teeth can be repaired and even shaped through the use of cosmetic bonding.  Using a composite resin the overall shape of your teeth can be changed, adding length, closing gaps, and correcting other minor imperfections.


Tooth Contouring

This is essentially the opposite of cosmetic bonding, where material is removed from your teeth to help create the beautiful look you’ve dreamed of.  Jagged edges can be smoothed, points refined, teeth shortened, and minor overlaps corrected. This last one adds a functional benefit as well, teeth that don’t overlap are easier to keep clear of decay.


Single Veneers

While full veneers are popular they aren’t always necessary or cost effective.  Single veneers are an option that’s available to those with one or two problem teeth that need correcting.  Its’ cheaper, less invasive, and a perfect solution to your cosmetic dentistry needs.



For those looking to correct misaligned teeth without the unsightly use of braces, there’s the Invisalign system.  Invisalign is able to correct the alignment of teeth and improve the appearance of your smile without using wires and bands.   In just a few months your teeth will be corrected, giving you a beautiful smile you can be proud of.
