A natural, confident smile communicates kindness and approachability to others. If you’re hesitant to show your teeth, however, you may inadvertently give others the impression that you’re sad or upset. At Dr. Arun Narang & Associates, we can restore and revitalize your smile with a Smile Makeover. Also referred to as smile design, a Smile Makeover, is a customized procedure that combines two or more techniques to achieve the smile you’ve always desired. Designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth as well as your face as a whole, there is no dental concern too big or too small for a Smile Makeover.

What is Smile Design?
Smile design is the blueprint by which our cosmetic dentists seek to harmonize your dental composition with your natural facial beauty for an aesthetic, proportional, and fully functioning result—your dream smile. This is achieved by enhancing your teeth, gums, and oral structures according to your individual facial shape, as well as the symmetry of your nose, chin, and surrounding facial features. Our team will listen to your concerns and smile goals while evaluating your facial composition to formulate an effective Smile Makeover treatment plan. Using cutting-edge digital smile design technology, you can even see a preview of the intended results and make any necessary adjustments and refinements before the start of treatment. With this collaborative approach, our dental specialists work with you to maximize the true beauty of your smile for an improved facial appearance overall.
What are the Benefits of a Smile Makeover?
The purpose of a Smile Makeover is to improve dento-facial aesthetics. With this procedure, we seek to enhance the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, oral structures, smile, and face. We take into consideration all of these aspects when developing a personalized cosmetic dentistry treatment plan, so that the end result is proportional, flattering, and unique to you. The size, shape, color, and position of the teeth have a profound affect on your appearance. By modifying these factors, we can help you obtain a smile you’re proud to show off.
A Smile Makeover is tailored to your needs and goals. Some individuals may only need small, minimally invasive changes such as conservative ceramic restorations or prep-free veneers. Other individuals may require a series of treatments to balance the jaw for improved facial proportion and to address bone volume loss. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and evaluate your anatomic indicators to develop a customized treatment plan that optimizes your outcome. In general, a Smile Makeover can include one or more of the following treatments:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Prepless Veneers
- Crown Lengthening with Laser Dentistry
- Gummy Smile Correction with Laser Dentistry
- Cosmetic Bonding
- Dental Implants
- Teeth Whitening
- CEREC® One-Visit Crowns and Onlays
- And Other Options
Small changes often have a dramatic effect. In many cases, conservative, minimally invasive treatment can help to address an open bite, harmonize the upper and lower jaw, or balance your smile. Your health, comfort, and long-term results are important to us. This is why we utilize some of the most advanced technology available, and many of our procedures use biocompatible, biomimetic, and metal-free materials.
Smile Makeover Candidates
If you aren’t entirely happy with your smile, or if you have mild to moderate cosmetic dental flaws that are affecting your appearance, a Smile Makeover can allow you to correct multiple imperfections at once for a comprehensive smile transformation achieved faster than addressing each component individually. The range of treatment options we offer can not only improve the shape, size, color, and position of your teeth, but they can also preserve your oral health for long-term benefits. This customized treatment plan is developed around your unique needs, and one of our dentists can help you assess whether a Smile Makeover is an optimal solution to achieve your dental goals.
Smile Makeover vs. Full Mouth Reconstruction
A Smile Makeover is primarily designed to address aesthetic dental issues, while full mouth reconstruction is generally reserved for more extensive concerns related to the integrity of a patient’s oral health, bone structure, or bite. Patients who may not have a stable foundation for a Smile Makeover may be better suited for full mouth reconstruction, which is similarly designed to enhance your teeth and smile with a customized dental plan tailored to your needs. Although the treatment options for both often overlap, full mouth reconstruction usually involves more restorative procedures when compared to a Smile Makeover, such as dental implants, periodontal treatment, or implant dentures.
What to Expect From a Smile Makeover
When you arrive for your initial consultation, our experienced dental professionals will review your cosmetic goals. We will then evaluate the condition of your teeth and oral structures with a thorough evaluation and other diagnostics as needed. Since a Smile Makeover is fully individualized to suit your singular needs and desired outcome, the experience will vary depending on the procedures utilized. Your cosmetic dentist will go over what to expect during your first meeting and provide all the information you need to help make your decision. Your comfort is a top priority for us, so if you have a phobia of dental treatment, we offer sedation dentistry to help you feel more at ease.
How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?
A Smile Makeover is priced according to the details of your unique treatment plan, such as the complexity of your procedure(s) and the techniques utilized to produce your desired results. Every patient has a different cost estimate, and we will fully break down your expenses during a consultation so that you are well-informed about every aspect of your smile transformation. We believe financial limitations should not stand in the way of patients achieving a world-class smile, which is why we offer several in-house financing options to make your Smile Makeover more affordable. Our team is here to help, so please don’t hesitate to call Dr. Arun Narang & Associates for any questions you have about the cost of a Smile Makeover.
We believe a bright, healthy smile is the best form of greeting. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth for any reason, we can help. Contact our practice today for more information about a Smile Makeover or to schedule a consultation.
