Have you found yourself thinking about a smile makeover?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile you may have experienced the following:

  • felt shy or embarrassed to smile in photographs
  • wished you had a better smile
  • felt afraid to ask your dentist for help

Don’t worry, because you are certainly not alone.

Did you know …

Only half of all American adults are satisfied with their smiles. (AACD…Learn more in a new tab at the AACD website…)

Today, we will discuss smile design and smile makeover.

Many dentists use these terms interchangeably; over time, these have come to mean the same thing. And for most situations, they can be considered the same.

Smile design typically refers to designing a smile tailored to a patient’s unique facial features, tooth shape, and individual preferences.

A smile makeover is a treatment plan that involves one or more dental procedures to improve the appearance of a person’s smile.

Smile design is often the first step in a smile makeover.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover combines various dental procedures that create whiter, straighter, and more beautiful smiles.

It is all about treating each patient individually, their existing dental condition, and their unique needs and wants.

It may include various techniques, from periodontal procedures to restorative treatments such as dental implants.

Most importantly, you have a personal consultant to help design and create your smile.

What does a smile makeover include?

At the Advanced Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, our smile makeover typically includes a combination of treatments involving restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, or both.

Our three-step process to your perfect smile

Steps one and two could be considered the smile design, and step three is the smile makeover.

Step One

First, we meet and set your goals and evaluate your existing smile.

In addition to the cosmetic side, we carry out a complete oral health examination to understand the whole issue.

This evaluation includes examining oral health, jaw alignment, and facial structure.

Before we begin the treatment and process, we’ll show you the possible outcome, usually with dental imaging. Creating a trial smile lets you see your appearance before committing to treatment.

Step Two

We create a plan. The amount of work we do depends on what you want to get a smile you’ll love, which helps you feel good. By fixing your smile, we’ll correct the look of your teeth and improve your appearance.

Step Three

The process starts, and our journey to your perfect smile begins.

What are the benefits of a smile makeover?


A smile makeover helps people feel good about their appearance. You’ll feel more ready to attend functions or even interact more.


A whiter, straighter, fuller smile instantly improves a person’s appearance.

A better smile is associated with success and creating a good first impression.

Oral Health

Once your underlying oral issues have been fixed, we can work on your smile.

A smile makeover isn’t just cosmetic; we can also restore damaged natural teeth.

A smile makeover is a comprehensive approach to improving a person’s smile and overall oral health.
