Achieve a Comprehensively Beautiful Smile with a Smile Makeover

A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures, such as dental bonding, veneers, and teeth whitening, into a single treatment plan. This method of treatment saves time that would otherwise be spent on several visits to the dentist, translates into savings on the combined cost, and can make comprehensively planned treatment that much more effective. Dr. Art Carpenter is a highly experienced and skilled dentist, and can help you plan smile makeover treatment at his office in Kenilworth, IL.

Dental needs change over time and not all dentists will provide the most lasting or effective recommendations, which make smile makeovers the best approach to achieving optimal, long-lasting results.

If you have a wedding or other important event coming up soon, a smile makeover can help you achieve the photo-worthy smile you want. Depending on the full course of treatment, you may even be able to complete your smile makeover in just one day at our office.

A Smarter Approach to Cosmetic Treatments

While many patients pursue smile makeovers as a fast way to address discoloration, misshapen teeth, and asymmetrical smiles, one of the most important benefits is actually the intelligently and comprehensively designed treatment plan. Dental needs change over time and not all dentists will provide the most lasting or effective recommendations, which make smile makeovers the best approach to achieving optimal, long-lasting results. 

Commonly Combined Treatments

Dr. Carpenter customizes every smile makeover using a variety of treatments to help his patients address concerns over the shape, position, and brightness of their teeth.


Dental BondingGapped teeth

Composite resin material is used to add volume to a tooth that does not match the size of surrounding teeth, or is misshapen. Dental bonding can also be used in smile makeover treatment to address chips, cracks, small gaps and slightly misaligned teeth. (Patients with more pronounced orthodontic issues may want to consider treatment with the Inman Aligner™.) The material is shaded to match your surrounding teeth to blend invisibly with your smile.

Porcelain VeneersDentist places a veneer on a tooth

Porcelain veneers are crafted to look beautifully natural, and can help patients achieve a brighter and more uniform smile. These thin shells of porcelain are durable and extremely versatile. They can cover stains, worn teeth, small cracks and chips, and a number of other imperfections for a smile that looks flawless. 

Teeth WhiteningSmile simulation of before and after teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is commonly added to smile makeover treatments, and plays an important role in determining the veneers and dental bonding material selected. If teeth whitening is incorporated into treatment, Dr. Carpenter will be able to use a lighter shade of dental bonding material and veneers, creating a dramatically brighter smile. 

Gum Contouring

An even, smooth gum line can enhance the appearance of your smile and provide a beautiful frame for your teeth. If you have excess gum tissue, we can sculpt your gums during a gum contouring procedure for a more uniform look.

Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!"
