Smile Makeover Q&A

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a completely individualized service in which Dr. Ko uses a variety of cosmetic treatments to transform your smile. Smile makeovers can help you whiten your teeth and treat a gummy smile at the same time. You can address several concerns with a single personalized treatment plan.

Which dental problems can a smile makeover treat?

If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, Dr. Ko can evaluate your teeth and gums to make the right recommendations for you. Some of the most common reasons people opt for a smile makeover are to fix:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Gummy smile
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth worn down by grinding
  • Crooked teeth

With a smile makeover, you and Dr. Ko work together to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

Which cosmetic treatments are included in a smile makeover?

Dr. Ko can design a smile makeover plan that includes two or more of the following treatments:

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic treatment dentists offer. Unlike over-the-counter (OTC) treatments, in-office teeth whitening can brighten your smile by up to eight shades. Dr. Ko also offers custom-made take-home whitening trays for your convenience.

Dental crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your tooth to cover imperfections, such as chipped teeth, broken teeth, teeth worn down by grinding, or even severe tooth discoloration. A crown also forms a seal around your tooth to protect it from damage.


A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that bonds to the surface of your tooth to change its shape, size, or color. Veneers can give you the Hollywood smile of your dreams with a minimal amount of dental work.


If you have misshapen teeth, tooth discoloration, chips or cracks, or gaps in your smile, composite bonding is a simple way to improve your smile without extensive dental work.

Tooth-colored fillings

Also called white fillings, a tooth-colored filling is a natural-looking alternative to traditional metal fillings.

Laser dentistry

If you’re embarrassed by a gummy smile, Dr. Ko uses laser dentistry to safely balance your gums with minimal pain, bleeding, and downtime. Soft tissue lasers can also even an uneven gum line.


Orthodontic therapy can straighten your teeth and correct malocclusion (bite problems) to help you smile comfortably.
