What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures designed to improve any and all perceived problem areas of your smile. These dynamic treatment plans are custom-tailored to suit the specific needs and goals of each patient for a unique smile transformation. A smile makeover performed at the Fawcett Center for Dentistry can deliver a dramatic smile upgrade, enhance facial beauty, and inspire maximum confidence.
What Concerns Can a Smile Makeover Treat?
Dr. Fawcett offers a wide range of cosmetic and restorative procedures that can be incorporated into a smile makeover plan. Many of the treatment options can improve tooth color, spacing, alignment, small structural flaws, and shape. More intensive procedures can repair or replace badly damaged or missing teeth for smile restoration. Even the gumline can be resculpted to perfect the aesthetics of the smile. Conditions that may be addressed with a smile makeover can include:
- Stained, discolored, or yellowed teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chipped and fractured teeth
- Missing teeth
- Badly damaged teeth
- Gummy smile or uneven gumline
What Is the Smile Makeover Process Like?
Dr. Fawcett’s approach to smile makeover preparation and planning involves the following steps:
- A comprehensive oral evaluation performed with advanced technology to assess dental health and structure.
- An in-depth discussion of your smile’s appearance and your smile makeover goals.
- A detailed review of which procedures and treatments can help you achieve the smile you desire.
- A fully customized smile makeover treatment plan, complete with a preview of the new smile Dr. Fawcett plans to create.
When you and Dr. Fawcett agree on a treatment plan, your smile makeover can be scheduled. For some patients, treatments may be completed in one appointment, while others require a more extensive, phased approach to achieve their final results. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Fawcett will explain every stage of the process so that you know what to expect.
“Best dentist and staff around! Very sweet and knowledgeable…takes care of everything and is literally a one stop shop. I highly recommend them to everyone.”
What Are My Smile Makeover Options?
Most patients can choose from a number of treatment options:
- Teeth whitening can lighten stains and discoloration for a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter.
- Porcelain veneers can conceal a wide variety of cosmetic concerns with thin shells of high-quality porcelain.
- Porcelain crowns can strengthen the structure of weakened teeth and improve smile aesthetics.
- Dental implants can replace missing or badly damaged teeth with functional, natural-looking results.
- Cosmetic gum recontouring can lengthen the appearance of teeth and create a balanced gumline.
- Cosmetic dental bonding can quickly conceal imperfections and reshape teeth with tooth-colored composite resins.
Once your teeth and gums have been evaluated and Dr. Fawcett has discussed which treatment options may be beneficial to your needs, he will show you before-and-after models of your teeth that can give you an idea of the potential results you can hope to achieve.
In many cases, complete smile makeover procedures can be performed right here in our office, without having to refer you to another practice. These custom-designed procedures can be a great way for you to achieve your goals with beautiful, natural-looking results.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?
Each smile makeover is highly customized to suit the needs and goals of the patient, which means the cost of the overall treatment plan is not the same for everyone. To calculate the total cost of a smile makeover, every aspect of the treatment plan must be considered. Typically, these components of the plan have the greatest impact on cost:
- The procedures and treatment being performed
- Complexity of the overall treatment plan
- Type and number of restorations required
- Materials and techniques used to fabricate any restorations
- Anesthesia costs if sedation techniques are included
Once your smile makeover plan is developed during the initial consultation, you will be provided with an accurate estimate of the total cost. At this time you will be able to speak with a friendly member of our team to discuss your payment options and get answers to any questions you may have. For smile makeovers that are at the higher end of the price spectrum, many patients express an interest in exploring dental financing opportunities available through Wells Fargo Health Advantage® and CareCredit®. These trusted lenders can make paying for treatment more affordable and convenient. Qualified applicants can be quickly approved to take advantage of low interest rates, interest-free loans, and flexible monthly payments. We also accept payment with major credit cards.
