Do I Need a Smile Makeover?
If you’re wondering whether you need a smile makeover, Dr. Doctor will be able to tell you after a full examination of your oral cavity and facial structure. Various problems can exist that warrant this type of treatment, such as:
- Chips/Cracks or Fractures
- Missing Teeth
- Crooked or Misshapen Teeth
- Gapped teeth
Should your bite alignment be a problem, it may be necessary for Dr. Doctor to recommend an orthodontic solution, especially if the misalignment is severe enough.
What Services Can Be Included in a Smile Makeover?
Dr. Doctor offers a wide array of cosmetic and restorative services, each designed to treat a specific aspect of your smile. These include:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Metal-Free Dental Restorations
- Dental Bonding
- Teeth Whitening
- Cosmetic Laser Dentistry (i.e. gum recontouring)
- Invisalign Clear Aligners
If you have teeth that are missing, Dr. Doctor can also incorporate tooth replacement solutions into your treatment plan, such as a fixed dental bridge, partial or full dentures, or dental implants.
Smile Makeover Process
The smile makeover process is one that varies depending on the patient and the services received. But no matter what type of cosmetic or restorative treatment you’ll be receiving, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Doctor. During this visit, he will examine your smile, take digital X-Rays, and formulate a treatment plan that includes the recommended services he believes will help you see the results you desire.
Once you’ve agreed to the treatment plan, you will begin to schedule your procedures based on which one Dr. Doctor recommends first. The average timeline for the following services includes:
- Porcelain Veneers: 2-3 visits (several weeks or months)
- Dental Bonding: 1 visit
- Metal-Free Dental Restorations: 2-3 visits (several weeks for restoration creation)
- Teeth Whitening: 1 hour for in-house treatment or 2 weeks for at-home whitening

- Invisalign Clear Aligners: Between 12-24 months on average
The Lasting Benefits of Smile Makeovers
A smile makeover does more than just improve your aesthetics. While this is the most prominent benefit, it also works to improve your oral health and boost your confidence.
Smile makeovers address problem areas of your smile that can lead to serious issues in the future if left untreated. Cracked, chipped, or missing teeth can put you at risk for infection or additional bone and tooth loss, whereas, stains can signal a thinning of the enamel and make you vulnerable to tooth decay, cavities, and tooth sensitivity.
No matter the reason for your smile makeover, you can trust that Dr. Doctor has your best interest in mind and wants to help you achieve the healthier, more beautiful, and confident smile you deserve.
