What Is a Smile Makeover and Why It May Be Right for You

Fix your oral flaws with a smile makeover and start smiling again.

If you’re less than happy with the way your teeth and smile look, you’re not alone. Every year, lots of men and women turn to cosmetic dentistry to fix a wide range of aesthetic issues to improve their smiles and feel more confident about their appearance. In some cases, all it takes is a single procedure or treatment like professional teeth whitening to provide the boost your smile needs to look its best. But some people find they need to address multiple issues to get the beautiful, healthy-looking, confident results they’re looking for. And that’s when a smile makeover at Legacy Dental Care can help.

Smile makeovers: An overview

In a nutshell, a smile makeover is a series of treatments or procedures designed to address your specific, individual needs. Since makeovers are tailored to every individual, every makeover is different — there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach. 

Smile makeovers typically include cosmetic treatments to correct aesthetic flaws, but they may also include restorations as well. Before your makeover begins, you’ll work closely with the dentist to discuss your concerns and goals so your treatment plan can be mapped out in advance so you know just what to expect.

What are the most common smile makeover procedures?

Some of the most common makeover options include:

Depending on your treatment goals and concerns, your smile makeover could include any combination of these treatments and other treatments and procedures as well.

The smile makeover process

A great-looking smile is about more than whiter, brighter teeth. Attractive smiles also have good symmetry and balance with the rest of your face. Teeth that appear too large or too small, smiles that look “too gummy,” or teeth that aren’t “lined up” or symmetrical with each other can all detract from the way your smile looks. At Legacy Dental Care, Dr. Darling can remedy any of these flaws.

Even before your initial consultation, you can start to get an idea of the problems you want to have addressed. Spend some time looking at your mouth in a mirror, both while you’re smiling and while your mouth is closed and relaxed. Then you can make a list of the issues you'd like to discuss.

During the consultation visit, Dr. Darling will review your treatment goals and evaluate your teeth and gums, your face shape, the size, and shape of your facial features. Next, she’ll discuss the options that can help you get the results you’re looking for and begin planning out the makeover process.
