Here Are Some Treatments You Should Consider When Designing Your Smile Makeover
Not all people are lucky enough to be born with a perfect smile. We all likely have aspects of our smile that we wish we could improve upon.

At Claire Cho DDS, Aliso Viejo, California, we work with patients to develop personalized smile makeover plans for smile improvement.
What May Be Included in My Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a personalized plan you can craft with your dentist, consisting of a number of treatments to address oral health concerns and cosmetic issues. With a smile makeover, cosmetic treatments will be combined with restorative treatments. What follows is a list of some of the common treatments which are included in a smile makeover.
When you consume foods and drinks that can stain teeth, like berries, coffee, or red wine, it can affect the appearance of your smile. The use of tobacco products is also a leading cause of tooth discoloration. Genetics can also play a factor. Whatever the reason, seeing your dentist for a professional whitening treatment can transform the appearance of your smile.
When you have dental decay, your dentist will need to clear that decay away and fill the resulting cavity with a filling. There was a time when fillings were made of a metal amalgam that was grey, silver, or gold in appearance. These were highly visible if you opened your mouth to laugh or yawn. Today’s fillings are made of a composite resin that can be shaded to match the color of the natural tooth it is being applied to, resulting in a strong and discreet restoration.
A veneer is a thin shell made of porcelain that is permanently fixed to the surface of a tooth to conceal certain cosmetic imperfections, including discolored, misshapen, cracked, or chipped teeth.Back to Smile Makeover Page
