What is a smile design?

Smile design, often called a smile makeover, recreates your smile by repairing, restoring, and improving all the things you don’t like about the appearance of your teeth. Every person’s makeover is customized to achieve their personal goals, giving them the smile of their dreams.

Creating your ideal smile typically involves several procedures. But in some cases, you may discover that just one or two procedures will take care of numerous cosmetic and structural problems.

You may only need aesthetic improvements, but smile makeovers go beyond your appearance to ensure your teeth are healthy, strong, and working the way they should. As a result, a smile makeover may include restorative procedures or require extensive repairs or oral surgery to get the best smile.

What procedures might I need during my smile design?

Smile design targets the full range of dental problems, including gum disease and stained, cracked, broken, uneven, decayed, and missing teeth.

There’s a long list of possible dental procedures that may be in your makeover plan to restore these concerns. Dr. Llanos may recommend: 

  • Teeth whitening
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Gum contouring
  • Invisalign®
  • Tooth-colored fillings

This list isn’t comprehensive, but it highlights the procedures frequently used during smile makeovers.

What happens during smile design?

After completing a dental exam, Dr. Llanos learns about the changes you want to achieve in your appearance. She also tells you about any problems discovered during your exam that need treatment to restore your dental health.

Then she works closely with you to develop a smile design plan that defines what you need and the process to reach the goal. Before you start any procedures, you’ll know how many appointments you may need, the services you’ll receive, and how much your smile makeover will cost.

The goal is to restore your smile as quickly as possible. However, your plan also allows you to create treatment phases, making it easier to spread out your procedures (and heal between them) and create a plan that fits your schedule and budget.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, don’t wait to schedule a consultation to learn more about smile design and the dramatic difference it can make in your appearance and dental health.
