We Provide Comprehensive Treatment To Transform Your Smile

When you have multiple concerns with your smile’s appearance, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve a smile you love with a combination of treatments. While these treatments focus primarily on the look of your teeth, you may find that your smile makeover offers valuable functional benefits as well! By correcting cracked, chipped, or missing teeth, we can help you regain the self-confidence that comes with a beautiful smile.

What Is A Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic dental treatment plan designed to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your smile. It involves a collaborative approach between you and your cosmetic dentist to achieve your desired outcome.

Procedures we generally include in a smile makeover are:

Teeth Whitening

This is often the first step to addressing discoloration from food, beverages, or aging. Professional whitening delivers better and long-lasting results than over-the-counter products.

Porcelain Veneers

These thin, custom-made shells of porcelain are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, discolored, uneven, or mildly misaligned teeth.

Dental Bonding

This technique uses a tooth-colored resin material to repair minor chips, cracks, gaps, or reshape teeth. Bonding is a less invasive option compared to veneers and suitable for smaller corrections.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that completely cover a damaged, weakened, or heavily discolored tooth. They restore strength, functionality, and aesthetics. While some crowns are purely functional, cosmetic crowns can be made of porcelain to mimic the natural appearance of teeth.

Am I A Candidate For A Smile Makeover?

Anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their smile may consider a smile makeover. This treatment plan takes a broad approach to select procedures that best treat multiple imperfections with your smile. This could include professional teeth whitening to lift stains from your enamel, orthodontic treatments to correct malocclusion, or restorative procedures to correct the shape of certain teeth. Because this treatment plan requires healthy gums to be successful, we may place you on periodontal therapy if necessary before progressing with your cosmetic procedures.

What To Expect

We customize each smile makeover to the specific needs of the patient, which means the number of visits and procedures you require can vary. We will work with you to determine the order in which we perform treatments, taking into account your schedule and time for recovery.

We use advanced digital imaging software can be used to virtually simulate your potential smile outcome, allowing you to visualize the final results before treatment begins.

We encourage you to ask questions at any time to ensure you’re comfortable with the plan and well-informed. 

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll be given a timeline once Dr. Knight has created your treatment plan.

Is it painful?

Many smile makeover procedures are comfortable, especially when we use anesthesia or sedation. Discomfort after procedures like veneer placement or gum sculpting is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain medication.
