Cosmetic dentistry has the ability to enhance more than just your appearance. Having a smile you love increases your confidence and can do wonders for your self-esteem.

Your smile is the first thing people see when they look at you, so we know you want a smile you’re proud of.

With smile design (or smile makeovers), it’s completely possible to achieve your dream smile.

In this blog, we’ll answer the top questions you might have about a smile makeover at Advanced Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry!

What is smile design?

Smile design is a cosmetic dental procedure that corrects teeth imperfections and restores your dental health and appearance. It involves a customized treatment and long-lasting results for a straighter, whiter, and natural-looking smile.

Our teeth wear down, chip, or discolor over time. However, smile design gives you a smile you’ll love for life.

It may consist of a combination of the following procedures depending on your needs and desires:

What is the process of smile design?

The journey with smile design begins with our initial consultation to discuss your goal smile and any underlying dental problems you may have.

We encourage you to bring a picture of your dream smile, so Dr. Oscar Cascante has a clear idea of what you’re looking for.

We’ll take care of any dental problems first before beginning the cosmetic procedure to building your dream smile.

Dr. Cascante will go through the whole process with you because he truly understands that no two patients are alike, and everyone requires a customized plan.

How long does smile design take?

Smile design could take three weeks to several months to complete. It depends on your goals and any dental problems we need to address first.

If your dream smile requires dental implants, this can increase your timeline to around six months to one year for optimal healing.

How much does smile design cost?

Customized smile designs are individualized for each patient, and the cost will depend on the procedures incorporated into the treatment plan. Since smile design is, for the most part, a cosmetic procedure, it may not be covered by all insurance plans.


We’ll provide you with an individualized price breakdown prior to treatment, as well as work with your insurance, if any, to maximize your savings.

At Advanced Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we’re committed to providing excellent dental care as well as keeping our costs down to pass on savings to our patients. We offer third-party financing and insurance that you can learn more about here.

Smile design is a priceless investment, making you look younger, increasing your self-confidence, and improving your quality of life.
