What Is A Smile Makeover?
No need for braces or jaw surgery! Smile Makeover is a term that is used to describe using naturally beautiful porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain dental bridges and even dental implants to create a beautiful, healthy smile. Each guest’s existing condition is unique so Smiles By Garcia customizes the smile solution to best meet their needs and wants. In most cases, a Smile Makeover involves the upper front ten teeth. Those are the ones that are most visible when we smile. At Smiles By Garcia our Smile Makeovers cover from one corner of the smile to the other corner- typically the top front 10 teeth. Many of our guests also want and need their lower ten teeth restored as well to get a perfect color match to the top Smile Makeover.
