Why Consider a Smile Makeover: Boost Your Smile Confidence

There are several reasons individuals opt for a Smile Makeover. This comprehensive service can address some common dental concerns:


Over time, our teeth may become stained or discolored due to various factors such as smoking, consumption of staining beverages like coffee and wine, or certain medications. A Smile Makeover can include teeth whitening procedures to restore a bright, white smile.

Chipped or Cracked Teeth

Accidents happen, and they can leave us with chipped or cracked teeth. Cosmetic procedures within a Smile Makeover can repair and cover these flaws, restoring the natural appearance of the teeth.

Missing Teeth

Losing a tooth or several teeth can significantly impact your smile and functionality. A Smile Makeover can include dental implants or bridges to replace missing teeth, restoring aesthetics and function.

Gaps or Misalignment

If your teeth are misaligned or have gaps, orthodontic treatments or veneers included in a Smile Makeover can correct these issues, providing a well-aligned, harmonious smile.

Unsightly Fillings or Old Restorations

Old metal fillings or outdated restorations can be replaced with more aesthetically pleasing materials to enhance the look of your smile.

Gummy Smile

If you’re self-conscious about showing too much gum when you smile, gum contouring can reshape the gum line and bring balance to your smile.

Enhanced Self-Esteem

A beautiful smile can significantly enhance self-esteem and self-confidence, making social interactions more enjoyable and fulfilling.

At Artistic Family Dentistry of Silver Spring, we understand that every smile is unique, so Dr. Bikoi and her team work closely with you to understand your concerns and goals. Our Smile Makeover service is not just about enhancing your smile; it’s about improving your life. Your journey towards a captivating smile is a collaborative process where your desires meet our dental artistry, leading to results that are as beautiful and unique as you are.
