Smile Makeover

An awesome smile does more than enhance appearance. It also boosts self-confidence, makes you feel more positive about life, and creates a good first impression in social and professional circles. Irving dentist Dental Concepts & Orthodontics believes everyone deserves the benefits of an attractive smile. That’s why we offer a smile makeover service. But what is a smile makeover? And are you a good candidate for a total smile remodel? Find out here.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

Wear and tear take a toll on teeth over time, even with good oral hygiene. This can result in several aesthetic issues. A smile makeover treatment usually consists of more than one cosmetic dental procedure to end the embarrassment of unsightly teeth. A wide range of cosmetic dental treatments are available to transform smiles. Furthermore, a smile redesign restores oral health and functionality.

Common smile makeover procedures include:

Could You Benefit from a Smile Makeover Treatment?

You’ll be a good candidate for a smile remodel if have aesthetic concerns caused by:

  • Stained or discolored teeth.
  • Chipped teeth.
  • Worn-down teeth.
  • Crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Tooth loss.

If have more than one of these problems, a smile makeover treatment could be the perfect solution. Bear in mind, though, that good smile makeover candidates are willing to commit to good oral health habits and regular dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.

Smile Makeover Procedures

Our Irving dentists can perform a wide variety of cutting-edge cosmetic dental procedures as part of a total smile revamp.

Teeth Whitening

Zoom Advanced Power teeth whitening gets teeth five to 10 shades brighter in a single appointment. You can also whiten your teeth in your home with Zoom whitening trays.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain dental veneers are wafer-thin shells placed on the front of teeth to conceal dental imperfections such as stained, chipped, or cracked teeth.

Dental Lumineers

Lumineers are a groundbreaking brand of dental veneers introduced in 2004, using proprietary Cerinate porcelain laminate.

Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns repair and strengthen damaged teeth by restoring shape, size, and color.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges consist of artificial teeth fused to a frame. They fill the gap left by a single missing tooth or section of missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard of treatment to replace one or more teeth. Implants are unique in dentistry in creating a synthetic tooth root. This promotes the jawbone growth essential to maintain facial structure and appearance.


Removable dentures restore smiles and improve oral functionality when several teeth or all the teeth are missing.

Orthodontic Procedures to Enhance Smiles

If your teeth are crooked, our Irving dentists offer two state-of-the-art orthodontic solutions to transform your smile: Invisalign aligner trays and Fastbraces.

Invisalign Aligners

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear plastic aligners are practically invisible in the mouth. They’re also removable, which means you can enjoy your favorite foods with none of the dietary restrictions that come with regular braces.


Fastbraces can straighten teeth faster than plastic aligners or standard braces, because they move the roots and crowns of teeth at the same time.

Oral Health Benefits of a Smile Makeover Treatment

A smile makeover treatment does more than enhance your smile. A beautiful smile is also a healthy smile. This is because cosmetic dentistry goes hand in hand with ensuring optimal functionality of teeth and the bite function. Teeth that are unsightly because of decay or other damage may also be sensitive, making it difficult to maintain a nutritious, balanced diet.

Crooked teeth that spoil smiles can result in a misaligned bite – your upper and lower teeth not meeting properly. This may affect your ability to chew food effectively, leading to digestive issues. Some problems with unsightly teeth also increase the risk of gum disease – a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. For instance, infection from a decaying tooth can spread to the gums. Crooked teeth can also lead to gum disease because they’re harder to keep free from plaque. In improving your smile, repairing, replacing or straightening teeth also helps protect your gums. And it allows you to eat healthily while enjoying your favorite foods.

Overcoming Dental Health Conditions Before a Smile Makeover

The ideal candidate for a smile makeover would have no oral health problems to start with, because these can affect the outcome of cosmetic dental procedures. Some individuals, therefore, may require more pre-smile remodel preparation than others. As we’ve seen, addressing aesthetic issues in itself often improves oral health. However, in some cases certain dental health concerns need to be resolved before going ahead with a smile makeover treatment.

For example, while a smile remodel can help prevent gum disease, if your gums are already infected, you’ll need periodontal treatment before any cosmetic dentistry can be done. And if you want dental implants as part of your smile makeover treatment but don’t have sufficient jawbone to support them, a bone graft may be necessary. Another potential problem, if you want dental veneers, is bruxism – habitual, excessive grinding of teeth, which can damage the veneers. You may need to wear a night guard to protect your veneers and your teeth, and relaxation techniques to reduce stress may also help.
