Our dentists will develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses each patient’s oral health and goals. These procedures will provide dramatic change to crooked teeth. The goal of a smile makeover is to improve the alignment, function, color, and shape of the teeth. We can create a treatment plan that helps you to achieve your dream smile in San Diego, CA.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures used during a smile makeover

At Dental Express, our dentists offer different treatment options for you to change your smile. A smile makeover can address cosmetic concerns that you may have, including crooked teeth. These cosmetic dentistry procedures improve how your smile looks. It also can:

Correct crowded or crooked teeth: Patients that want a straighter smile can use Invisalign® to gradually and gently shift their teeth to more desired positions. This is done with SmileCorrect™ aligners that are custom made for each patient. This procedure improves oral health as crowded or misaligned teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay. This is a great treatment option for adults who want to straighten their teeth discreetly without traditional metal braces.

Improve the length, size, and shape of teeth: Teeth that are too small, narrow, or too big can impact how your smile looks. We can improve the

size, length, shape, or width of your teeth with veneers.

Repair or restore broken, chipped, or cracked teeth: Teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken can affect how you chew. When this is repaired during a smile makeover, you restore the function of your teeth while improving the smile too. Dental bonding and contouring can be used to correct these imperfections.

Whiten teeth: Our patients get a bright and white smile with teeth whitening. This cosmetic dentistry procedure removes any discoloration, stains, or yellowing.

The goal of a smile makeover in San Diego, CA is to transform a smile.

How to achieve healthy teeth at home

After you’ve achieved a celebrity smile with our dentists at Dental Express, it’s important that you care for them to keep them looking and feeling their best. Avoid consuming stain-causing beverages, such as coffee, tea, or red wine, as they can stain your white teeth. Also, never use your teeth as a tool since this can crack or chip your veneers, or other restorations. Be sure to brush and floss regularly to reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Schedule regular dental exams and routine dental cleanings for optimal oral health.
