What is a Smile Makeover?
A comprehensive smile makeover is known by many names, including “Hollywood smile,” “red carpet smile,” “Miami smile,” and “smile restoration.” Smile makeovers take a multidisciplinary approach to treating conditions. The ultimate goal is to give patients the kind of smiles they could once only dream of.
Since the goal is to create an attractive smile as possible, a combination of procedures is usually performed to create the desired result. By offering treatments as a package, not only do patients leave the dentist's office with a beautiful smile, they also save time and money.

Yes! With the CG Smile Makeover, it’s entirely possible to have a completely new smile in just two visits. We have a master ceramist on staff and use state-of-the-art technology to ensure the process is not only quick, but also delivers stunning results.

CG Smile Makeover Before & After
What's Included with a Smile Makeover?
Each patient is different, therefore the recommended treatments also vary from patient to patient. Some of the treatments that may be included with your smile makeover include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Night Guard
- Zoom!™ teeth whitening
The procedures listed above are often combined to deliver the best results. During your consultation, the dentist will give you a detailed breakdown of how the individual treatments will work together to rejuvenate the appearance of your smile.
How Does the CG Smile Makeover Work?
In as little as two visits, you can have a completely rejuvenated smile — even if you are missing teeth. On your first visit, our team will perform a comprehensive dental exam. Your first session will include cleaning, X-rays, diagnostics, and we will also take the “before” photos for your before-and-after photographs. If you are having veneers, bonding, or crowns placed, your teeth will be prepared and your scans and/or impressions will be given to our in-house design team. We will help you select the style and shade of your new teeth. We have an on-site master ceramist and use state-of-the-art technology. This means some procedures can be performed the very same day.
On your follow-up visit, your porcelain veneers will be affixed to your teeth. We will also make any finishing touches that are required to ensure you are absolutely thrilled with your new smile. Depending on the present state of your smile, we may recommend gingivectomy, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and or teeth straightening.

Procedures Typically Used in a Smile Makeover
Most smile makeovers include a combination of cosmetic procedures. When you big your smile transformation, we will ask you questions to help you visualize your ideal smile. We will show you examples of smiles and help you select a style that best complements your facial structure and appearance.
Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth is often the easiest way to improve the appearance of your smile. How would you like to get your teeth eight shades whiter with professional treatments from your dentist? CG Smile offers chair-side professional whitening using Zoom!™ teeth whitening to bring the sparkle back to your smile.
Crowns and Bridges
If you have missing or damaged teeth, one of the first steps in rejuvenating your smile will be in correcting these issues. Dental bridges are often used to replace one or several missing teeth. Bridges use two crowns to hold an artificial tooth that replaces the missing tooth.
Dental crowns surround the crown (the exposed portion) of the tooth and essentially replace the enamel. This not only improves the appearance of the tooth, but also gives it added strength.
Another method of replacing a missing tooth is with dental implants. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone, giving them the stability of natural tooth roots. An abutment is then attached to the implant to allow either a dental crown or overdenture to be placed. When replacing a full arch of teeth, typically only four implants are required to support a full implant overdenture.
Digital Dental X-Rays
You may not realize it, but digital dental X-rays are a major part of the smile design process. Through X-rays, we can identify any issues hiding below the surface that could complicate your restoration. After all, we want your smile makeover to last and that means having all the facts on your oral health. By analyzing your X-rays, the dentist is better able to recommend the course of cosmetic and restorative treatments that will best improve the appearance of your smile.

Hollywood Smile: What’s The Secret?
One of the most-asked questions about the stars of television and movies is, how do they get that great smile? (Most assume it’s just good genes.) We can answer that question with two words: porcelain veneers. Name your favorite Hollywood actor or actress and there’s a good chance that they have porcelain veneers. Tom Cruise, Miley Cyrus, Hillary Duff, Zac Efron, George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Ben Affleck, Emma Watson, Keith Urban, and Jennifer Garner are just a few examples of celebrities who have enhanced their smiles with porcelain veneers. Just do a Google search for “Tom Cruise before veneers” or and you’ll see how transformative porcelain veneers can be. Many of these wouldn’t be the Hollywood heartthrobs they became without a little help from porcelain veneers.
Read on to learn what it’s like getting a set of custom porcelain veneers. It’s surprisingly fast and easy to achieve a Hollywood smile.
CG Smile Makeover FAQ
Before we start treatments, your dentist will first walk you through a consultation and evaluation process. This establishes the condition of your oral health and allows the dental practitioner to recommend the best package of treatments.
- Preparing the teeth. Most smile makeovers include porcelain veneers. Placing the veneers on top of your teeth without altering them would make the veneers stand out from the neighboring teeth. To avoid this issue, the enamel of the the teeth are shaved down to accommodate the veneers. This process is known as enameloplasty.
- Taking impressions. Once the teeth have been prepared, impressions are then created using either traditional mold techniques or digital scans. These impressions are then sent to the master ceramist, who will craft and tint your permanent veneers.
- Placing the temporaries. It can take a few days for your permanent veneers to be completed. In the meantime, temporary veneers will be placed and you will wear these until your follow-up appointment. Temporary veneers are usually crafted from a composite resin that uses your impressions as a guide. Your temporaries should give you a decent idea of how your permanent veneers will look.
- The follow-up appointment. On your follow-up appointment, your permanent veneers will be placed and you can finally look into the mirror and admire your smile.
- Scheduling checkups. Like all dental restorations, you should periodically have your porcelain veneers examined to ensure their longevity. Your dentist will most likely schedule your restoration checkups so they coincide with your regular checkup cycle.
Lumineers refer to a brand of no-prep veneers that are crafted from thin pieces of laminate. These are actually so thin that the teeth do not need to undergo a shaving process before they are applied. Lumineers are also semi-translucent. Therefore, if your teeth have dark stains, Lumineers may not be the best option. Most Lumineers last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. In some instances, Lumineers may require several appointments. During your first appointment the dentist will take impressions of your teeth. On the follow-up appointment your Lumineers will be placed.
Since each set of procedures will vary from patient to patient, so too will the overall cost of your smile makeover. If you are looking to improve your smile through a complete makeover, CG Smile can help you get an idea of the total cost through a free consultation. Call CG Smile today to get started.
Dental insurance often covers a portion or all of the cost of procedures that are deemed medically necessary. Many restorative treatments not only improve your oral health, but also the appearance of your smile. Before any treatments begin, we will advise you on what procedures are covered by insurance and which may not.
The average is two visits with your dentist. Some smiles can be corrected in just one visit while others may require up to three visits with the dentist. The number of visits required to achieve your smile will depend on the type of procedures chosen and the state of your oral health.
A majority of cosmetic treatments cause very little pain or discomfort. During some procedures, a local anesthetic will be applied to minimize any discomfort and to ensure you are comfortable throughout the process. If you have dental anxieties, we can also recommend a form of conscious sedation such as nitrous oxide.
