Smile Makeover FAQs


What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a custom combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as porcelain veneers, bonding and dental implants, to greatly improve the appearance of your smile in a relatively short time. The results are so dramatic that this process is often called an ‘extreme makeover.

Who are the best candidates for a smile makeover?

What procedures are most commonly used for a smile makeover?

This depends on the features you’d like to change and the timeframe you have. The procedures can be porcelain veneers, bonding, tooth whitening, porcelain crowns, or other procedures offered by one of our excellent doctors & associates.

How many appointments does it take to complete a smile makeover?

This will heavily depend on the number and type of procedures that comprise your individual smile makeover. It could take as little as one or two appointments scheduled over a couple weeks. If you want several procedures, the full results could take longer.

Does dental insurance cover the cost of smile makeovers?

Usually insurance will only cover a small portion of the smile makeover cost, if any. Our staff will work with your insurance company to fill out the appropriate paper work and ensure that you will fully benefit from the type of coverage you have. This is because most procedures selected for a smile makeover are deemed ‘cosmetic’ by the insurance industry. However, we have many Financing Options available to help make smile makeovers affordable for every budget.
