What Is A Smile Makeover?

A great smile is one of the best traits a person can have. It tells a lot about your current mood and contributes to your confidence. Unfortunately, some issues can make you decide not to smile, particularly when you have challenges with your teeth. The good news is you can show your teeth again with a smile makeover! Worry no more about broken or deformed teeth with a smile makeover from Gentle Dental. In this article, we’ll go over some things you should know about a smile makeover!

How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

A smile makeover is the combination of one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures that repair teeth and gums. The process begins with an examination of the jaws, teeth, and gums to identify the problem and plan a solution. After a thorough assessment, we’ll suggest a suitable treatment strategy that will once again reveal your great smile!

Cosmetic Dental Procedures 

Cosmetic dental procedures are used for reshaping, whitening, replacement, and rearrangement of your teeth. Depending on your specific needs, you may also need dental veneers, composite bonding, or tooth implants to achieve your desired smile. Below is a breakdown of some of the different cosmetic procedures that may be used during a smile makeover!


Reshaping of your teeth may be necessary to achieve your desired smile. This is doable with specialist orthodontic treatments designed for adults. Many times we also recommend clear aligners for teeth straightening. 

Filling Gaps in Teeth

Teeth removal and shifting can leave a space to fill to make your smile complete. It is necessary to fill the gap to prevent the nearby teeth from decaying. This is feasible with the help of a dental bridge or veneers. Filling gaps in teeth is a component of oral health and a good smile!


The whiteness of teeth is one of the factors of a great smile. Discolored teeth can make a person feel self-conscious. However, it is possible to address this problem through dental veneers and professional teeth whitening.

Uniformity and Symmetry

In order to achieve a balanced and beautiful smile, your teeth must be uniform and symmetrical. Using cosmetic dental procedures, we can straighten your teeth to make them symmetrical and great looking!
