A smile makeover is a set of cosmetic dental procedures that can improve the appearance of your smile. Depending on your dental needs, a smile makeover can include one or more cosmetic dental procedures.

Consultation and diagnosis

During your consultation, your dentist will use X-rays, intraoral cameras, and other diagnostic tools to assess your oral health. This helps inform your dentist about your oral health status and what procedures you may need. A smile makeover treatment may include one or more cosmetic or restorative dental treatments. Your dentist may also provide you with an itemized treatment plan that includes detailed costs and a timeline for your procedure(s).

Once your consultation is complete, your dentist can move forward with your smile makeover procedure(s). For a smile makeover treatment to be successful, it’s important for patients to have strong at-home dental hygiene habits to prevent cavities and gum disease. Patients who do not practice good oral hygiene may experience extra dental work after an improvement in their smile. This is because decay can continue to form around existing restorations and make patients more susceptible to further tooth decay.

During your initial consultation, your dentist will provide recommendations for maintaining proper oral health at home to ensure that no damage is caused to your teeth following your procedure.


Before beginning the smile makeover process, your dentist will first prepare your teeth to ensure optimal results. This typically includes removing any decay and fillings that may need to be replaced, as well as reshaping your enamel using lasers or abrasive tools to expose more of each tooth’s structure. In some cases, a dental crown may also be placed to protect a tooth from further wear or damage. During your consultation appointment, discuss any concerns you have about preparing for the procedure so you and your provider can develop a plan that takes your needs into account.

Placement of veneers, crowns, or bridges

Veneers require no preparation of the teeth and can be placed in one appointment. Porcelain crowns and bridges typically require two appointments to place; the first is to prepare the tooth and take impressions for the lab to fabricate an appliance, and the second is to cement the crown or bridge in place. Your dentst may recommend another treatment, such as orthodontic treatment, instead of placing a crown to correct a tooth’s shape or position. In the case of minor cosmetic flaws such as an unevenly shaped tooth or a small chip, bonding may be recommended to restore the teeth rather than placing porcelain restorations.

If you choose a smile makeover to improve your smile, it is important to care for your teeth with daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine dental exams and cleanings. These measures will help to keep your teeth and gums healthy for many years to come.

If further treatment is needed in the future, the restorations are durable enough to last for many years, but they may need to be replaced at some point due to natural wear over time.
