Smile Makeover
Houston, TX

Gorgeous Hispanic woman showing off her wonderful teeth with a smileA smile makeover is one of the best ways to address any concerns you may have about the appearance of your smile. Instead of scheduling an appointment for veneers or a dental crown or teeth whitening, you can work with us at Frank Dunlap, DDS to determine which combination of those treatments or other cosmetic dental treatments will help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a comprehensive dental treatment plan that resolves any problem you have with your smile, whether functional, cosmetic, or both. A smile makeover usually involves more than one dental treatment and can include treatments like veneers, bonding, teeth whitening, dental crowns, and dental implants. The goal of a smile makeover is to give you the smile you have always wanted.

A smile makeover can do more than restore your natural smile. Your smile makeover can also address issues like tooth length and proportion, tooth texture, and your smile line. It can also address any cosmetic imperfections in your teeth. A smile makeover can even include dental surgery to help restore the look of any areas of your face that have changed shape due to dental conditions.

What Treatments Come with a Smile Makeover?

There are many changes we can offer our patients under the large heading of “smile makeover.” Perhaps you need minor repairs to your smile as you get older. You may have put a lot of strain on your teeth over the years. The wear and tear you put on your teeth can get excessive, and actually prevent your teeth from working as properly as they should. You might have misshapen teeth and large gums as well. If you have too much gum tissue, we can reshape your gums with lasers, and we can use bonding to reshape your teeth to look more symmetrical and fit your mouth better.

If you need to protect your teeth or make your teeth straighter, we can give you aligners. Aligners can both straighten your teeth and also space them correctly. If your teeth are cracking because you clench or grind your teeth at night, we can fit you with a night mouth guard as a way to protect your teeth, as well as your jaw.

Other procedures and treatments we are able to provide under the category of smile makeovers include the following:


Veneers are often called “Hollywood smiles,” and for good reason. These are incredibly thin shells, typically made of porcelain, that are attached to the front of your teeth. Veneers are used in many smile makeovers because of how radically they can change the size, shape, length, and color of your teeth. To do this, our dentists have to file down the tooth beneath, meaning that once you get veneers attached it’s a permanent and irreversible restoration.

Crowns & Bonding

Crowns and dental bonding treatments are less extensive and lower-cost alternatives to veneers, though sometimes they can be used alongside veneers to give you more flexible control over your smile makeover. Crowns are like caps that go over damaged, broken, or cracked teeth, while bonding is a treatment that applies a resin to a tooth to change its shape.

Teeth Whitening

For those patients without full veneers, teeth whitening is a must for any smile makeover. We don’t just whiten your teeth; we evaluate the color and shade of your teeth as part of your overall smile and complexion. We make sure that your teeth are polished to a brilliant pearly white. Teeth whitening is one of our most popular treatments we perform in a smile makeover.

Aesthetic Gum Lift

Also known as gum contouring, this technique uses a powerful diode laser to sculpt your gum line, ridding you of your gummy smile. Our veteran cosmetic dentists artistically and precisely alter your gum line to enhance your newly beautified teeth.

How to Get a Smile Makeover

The first step in your smile makeover is calling our office and booking an appointment so we can perform a full assessment of your needs and what goals you want to achieve. During your appointment, we will determine the best treatment or treatments to restore your smile and discover if there is anything else you want to change about your smile.

You may be a good candidate for a smile makeover if you are unhappy with your smile for any reason. You may want a smile makeover to address missing or unevenly spaced teeth or teeth that are damaged in some way.

Some issues we might address during your appointment are tooth color, tooth spacing, teeth that are chipped or cracked, and teeth that are missing or uneven. We will then put together a treatment plan that addresses all of your needs. Depending on the issues you would like resolved, your smile makeover may involve a series of dental appointments.

Once we determine your treatment plan, we can give you an idea of what your smile will look like after your treatment is completed. We will do this by using dental imaging software, dental models, and before and after pictures of patients with similar conditions. We can also give you an idea of what it will cost to maintain your smile makeover based on the procedures that we will be performing.

Are You Ready for a Smile Makeover?

Due to a smile makeover involving multiple cosmetic dental procedures, you should be committed to maintaining the results of those procedures with good oral hygiene and regular dental appointments. You should also understand that some of the procedures, such as veneers and crowns, will need to be redone after several years, as they only last a certain amount of time.
