A Smile Makeover is a very broad description for a number of life-changing dental procedures.
They vary from simply whitening teeth to full mouth reconstruction. Let’s look at what dentists can do today to re-shape the appearance, position, health, and function of teeth in a less than perfect mouth.
Although not as sexy as cosmetic dental work, a functional makeover can be the most life-changing. A wide array of dental procedures can be used to make the changes including Invisalign, crowns and bridges, bonding, night guards, and implants.
A functional makeover should:
Remove diseased areas in a tooth or in the mouth including dental decay, fractured teeth or damaged restorations
correct tooth position by eliminating overlapping or crowded teeth and closing unwanted spaces
restore missing teeth
optimize the bite (occlusion)
eliminate harmful habits

A cosmetic dental makeover focuses on improving the appearance and look of the smile. A healthy, beautiful smile is priceless and can affect dramatically the way others perceive you and the way you perceive yourself.
A cosmetic makeover can:
Improve the color of the teeth including the shade of the teeth and the uniformity of tooth color throughout the mouth along with the elimination of stains, unsightly restorations or other defects
Create an ideal shape for the individual teeth by restoring broken, damaged or unsightly teeth or restorations or by improving natural defects in the teeth
Align the teeth ideally in the dental arch by widening the arch, by eliminating overlaps and spacing and by positioning the teeth ideally
Create healthy, pink gums around the teeth that is uniform in architecture
