If you’re unhappy with your smile, you don’t have to live with the embarrassment or discomfort. DC Dental Spa provides comprehensive smile makeover solutions to restore your teeth so that they’re just as healthy as they are beautiful!
Smile makeovers are defined as a type of dental procedure meant to both resolve a cosmetic dental concern and improve your smile dramatically and completely. Smile makeovers can address and fix such problems as:
- Stained teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Smiles that show too much gum
- Missing teeth
At this point in your life, you might have suffered an injury or encountered other dental issues that have made your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at DC Dental Spa is a custom treatment plan of either restorative and cosmetic procedures, or both, that can focus on improving the look of your teeth and your general oral health. A smile makeover might consist of something as simple as teeth whitening, or applying porcelain veneers, the re-alignment of your teeth, simple cosmetic bonding, or replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover might also include a restorative procedure such as a dental bridge or crown to correct missing teeth.
Our artistic team at DC Dental Spa can be creative when it comes to working on a smile makeover. We will apply the advanced technology available combined with our friendly atmosphere to evaluate the factors to achieve your optimum and healthy smile. Call 202-873-1054 for your initial consultation and let us develop a custom smile makeover for you.

Are you a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover may certainly be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you are considering several cosmetic procedures. The staff at DC Dental Spa will personalize your smile makeover program to meet your goals and your concerns. It might start with simple teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that might be in your plan are dental bonding, contouring or dental veneers to correct and improve either the length or shape of your teeth, and to close minor gaps between teeth. Restorations such as bridges and crowns may be in your custom smile makeover to replace a lost tooth or teeth. All restorations performed at DC Dental Spa are custom to ensure they match your natural teeth for a perfect look.
Before we begin any cosmetic treatments, our team will need to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have a restrictive oral health issue such periodontal disease, gum disease, or a dental malocclusion, then this will need to be treated first.
What might the Process be for a Smile Makeover?
Your teeth, gums and lips are as unique as your fingerprints. Therefore, each smile makeover is personalized. We will discuss exactly what you can expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits it might require. We will work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments in your makeover. Local anesthesia might be needed for a few of your treatments, although other sedation options may be suggested if you need help relaxing because of dental anxieties. Throughout your entire your smile makeover, we will always be happy to help you feel more comfortable and answer any of your questions.
What Is the Result of a Smile Makeover?
By undergoing a smile makeover, you can expect the best possible outcome possible for you, a stunning smile with well-aligned, perfect white teeth.
DC Dental Spa will use porcelain products, such as onlays, crowns and veneers, to top off the smile makeover process. Veneers, small wafer-thin porcelain pieces overlaid onto the front of the teeth, are the most common option. They tend to both look and feel more natural and they are also much easier for us to work with in order to restore your teeth. They are also much less prone to future stains and other forms of damage. Onlays and crowns are also beneficial but are installed through different procedure methods.
The Equipment possibly used for your Smile Makeover
There are a few common pieces of equipment we may use during your smile makeover procedure, such as:
- Digital imaging equipment, which helps us visualize your smile makeover and give you an idea of how you will look after any procedure.
- An intra-oral camera, which will allow us to make a diagnosis for your teeth by enlarging pictures taken of the inside of your mouth.
- A soft tissue laser, which is designed to remove the frenum, the muscle typically responsible for front tooth gaps, and to reshape the line of the gums.
How the Recovery Process Works
There is truly little difference between recovering from a smile makeover versus any other form of dental procedures. You will feel sore for a few days, particularly around your gums. Any discomfort you experience may be easily treated with an over the counter pain medication.
How Much Will This Procedure Cost?
The cost of a smile makeover will depend on the actual treatment plan. The most common version of a smile makeover is the application of porcelain veneers. The cost per veneer can range from $800 to $1,500 depending your situation. We offer flexible payment plans to make your smile makeover affordable.
In your initial consultation, DC Dental Spa can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and your budget. A staff member can then estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we offer at our practice. Cosmetic treatments included in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance plans, although some restorations might be partly insured. We will address all of this with your insurance provider before proceeding with your plan.
