Do you lack confidence in your appearance?

Do you wish you had a better smile?

Well, you are not alone! Data shows that only half of all American adults are satisfied with their smiles. (Source: AACD…Open a new window to the AACD website…)

On top of that, 92% of adults agree that an attractive smile is an important social asset – which means bad teeth can seriously drag you down.

If you want to improve your appearance or smile, don’t worry; we have the perfect solution for you.

It’s called “smile design,” or colloquially, a smile makeover.

Stay tuned as we cover:

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a custom plan to bring you the smile you deserve. It’s typically a combination of treatments involving restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, or both.

Smile makeovers are also known as Smile Design and combine various dental procedures that create whiter, straighter, and more beautiful smiles.

It may include different techniques, from periodontal surgeries to restorative treatments such as dental implants.

Most importantly, you’ll benefit from a personal consultant to help design your smile; you don’t have to guess what combination of treatments is right for you.

Our Three-Step Guide to Your Perfect Smile

Step One: Consultation and Evaluation

Together, we evaluate your existing smile and set your goals for your new smile.

A complete oral health examination to understand the issue is carried out before we examine the cosmetic side.

Our initial evaluation covers oral health, jaw alignment, facial structure, and more.

Before we begin the treatment process, we’ll show you possible outcomes, usually via dental imaging.

Thanks to these images, you can see a “trial smile” before committing to treatment.

Step Two: Treatment Planning

We create a plan. The extent of work depends on your goals and unique situation.

We’ll educate you about each part of our plan to make absolutely sure you know what to expect and are comfortable with receiving treatment.

By correcting your teeth, we’ll fix your smile and improve your appearance.

Step Three: Restoring Your Smile

Finally, we start the treatment, and your smile makeover journey begins. This looks different for everyone, so talk to us to learn more.

What Are the Benefits of Smile Design?


A smile design makeover helps people feel good about their appearance. Patients typically feel far more confident interacting with others, and you won’t need to hide your smile in social settings.


A whiter and straighter smile instantly improves a person’s appearance.

A better smile is often associated with success, and can make you look more youthful at the same time!

Oral Health

The process identifies and corrects any underlying oral issues. A smile makeover isn’t just cosmetic; we can also restore your natural teeth.

This can eliminate dental pain and discomfort, letting you get back to enjoying the foods and activities you love without distractions.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?

The cost of a smile makeover varies widely based on the specific treatments you end up needing.

We’ll work with you to develop a realistic schedule and budget, and we’ll never try to pressure you into accepting unnecessary treatment.

So why wait? With the expertise of Smile Ballard, you can get the brilliant, natural smile that you deserve.

    Like an unshapely face with modern technologies, dentists can improve or rejuvenate an unshapely face to give fuller lips and cheeks to complement the smile.
