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

A smile makeover doesn’t have to be purely cosmetic; we can also restore the function and comfort of your natural teeth.

How does smile design work?

Your journey with smile design begins with an initial consultation to discuss your smile goals and identify any underlying dental problems you may have.

For extra credit, feel free to bring an example picture of your dream smile, so Dr. Michael T. Bodensteiner knows what you’re looking for.

We’ll take care of your general dental problems before starting cosmetic procedures to build your dream smile.

Our team will go through the whole process with you and make sure you understand (and are ok with) everything ahead of time. We truly understand that no two patients are alike, and everyone requires a customized plan.

How long does smile design take?

Smile design could take a few weeks to several months to complete.

It depends on your situation, the amount of treatment to be done, and on underlying health issues that need to be addressed before starting.

If your perfect smile requires dental implants, this can increase your timeline to between six months and one year for optimal healing.
