Smile Makeover Davis, CA

For those who feel self-conscious about their smile, a smile makeover can completely alter the look of the teeth, whether it is color, shape, or uniformity that needs enhancement. Dental treatments can help with missing teeth, tooth discoloration, a crooked smile, a misaligned bite, or broken teeth. Dental imperfections can cause embarrassment or low self-esteem, but a makeover treatment can restore confidence and pride in one’s appearance.

Options to treat a range of imperfections

A makeover could rely on a single treatment or a combination of solutions to create the desired look. Consult a dental professional to outline what conditions need to be addressed and ideal, effective solutions to fit the individual health and expectation of the patient when it comes to the smile makeover.

Dental veneers

Made from either porcelain or a resin composite, veneers are extremely thin layers of material that are layered over the teeth and permanently bonded in place. This treatment can correct discoloration or imperfections such as chips, cracks, uneven surfaces, or tooth length.

Teeth whitening

For a smile that is brighter and whiter, a tooth whitening treatment may be the solution. The in-office solutions are more effective and long-lasting than do-it-yourself kits, as professional-grade whitening gel is a highly concentrated solution that delivers noticeable results more quickly.

Clear aligners

If braces are the suggested treatment for correct teeth that are crooked or a bite that is misaligned, clear aligners can deliver the same results as traditional metal brackets and wires but in a less conspicuous way. Trays are custom-fitted to the teeth and gradually exert pressure to shift the teeth into a more uniform appearance. Aligners can be removed for things like dental hygiene, eating, and drinking, making them convenient and often more comfortable than traditional braces.

Dental implants

Missing teeth can impact the way a smile looks, but dental implants are a popular restoration option. In this treatment, a titanium screw is fused to the jawbone to act as a root and foundation for an artificial replacement tooth. A crown is manufactured to match the shape and color of the natural teeth, and when the process is complete, the implant acts and looks like a real tooth.

Tooth-colored bonding

Chips and cracks in the teeth or a slight gap between two teeth can be covered used tooth-colored bonding. An alternative to veneers, this is a quick treatment option where a bonding solution is applied to teeth to help affix a compositive resin. As the material dries, the bonding is shaped to match the look of the natural smile.

Dental crown

Teeth that are uneven in length or that have been chipped or cracked can be treated with dental crowns. Much like in an implant, the crown is made to look like a natural tooth, flawlessly covering the tooth imperfections that disrupt an engaging, beautiful smile.


Natural-looking cosmetic or restorative treatments can be used to address common dental imperfections. A smile makeover should result in a beautiful, functional, confident smile that turns heads and improves self-esteem. Consult a provider for more information on treatment options.
