For some patients, a single cosmetic dentistry treatment isn't enough to address all smile concerns affecting their self-esteem.
A smile makeover can tackle all your concerns, leaving you with an aesthetically pleasing smile you can feel good about showing the world.
At our Kenilworth, IL, office, Dr. Art Carpenter can design a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan to transform your appearance.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental bonding, veneers, and teeth whitening, into a single treatment plan. This treatment method saves time that would otherwise be spent on several dentist or cosmetic dentist visits, comprehensively plans your treatment more effectively, and potentially saves you money on your care. Dr. Art Carpenter is a highly experienced and skilled dentist who can help you achieve your dream smile at his Kenilworth, IL office.
Commonly Combined Treatments In a Smile Makeover
With dental bonding, a composite resin material is used to add volume to a tooth that is misshapen or doesn't match the size of the surrounding teeth. The bonding material is created to match your surrounding tooth enamel and blend in seamlessly with your smile. Dental bonding can be used as a smile makeover treatment to address chips, cracks, small gaps, worn teeth, and slightly misaligned teeth. Patients with more pronounced orthodontic issues may want to consider treatment with the Inman Aligner™.
Porcelain veneers are crafted to look beautifully realistic, thanks to our slightly translucent porcelain material that shines just like your natural teeth. Veneers can help you 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 several other imperfections for a smile that looks flawless.
Teeth whitening is commonly added to smile makeover treatments and plays an important role in determining the materials selected for veneers and dental bonding. If teeth whitening is incorporated into treatment, Dr. Carpenter can use a lighter shade of dental bonding or veneer material on each treated tooth, creating a dramatically brighter and uniform smile.
An even, smooth gum line can enhance the appearance of your smile and provide a beautiful frame for your teeth. Excess gum tissue can cover up your smile and cause your teeth to look shorter than they are. If you have excess gum tissue, we can sculpt your gums for a more uniform look during a gum contouring procedure.

If you have a wedding or other important event coming up, a smile makeover can help you achieve a beautiful smile you'll be proud to share in photos. Depending on the full course of treatment, you may even be able to complete your smile makeover in just one day at our office.

Do I Need to See a Cosmetic Dentist? Why Patients Choose Us
It's not necessary to see a cosmetic dentist for a smile makeover treatment plan. There are many benefits of seeing our highly experienced general dentist over a cosmetic dentist, including:
Preview Your Results
We are committed to providing patients with the highest form of dental care. We accomplish this by utilizing advanced technology to enhance our practice. After we determine which concerns need fixing and which treatment options will get you the results you desire, our dentist will create a wax-up model of your results so you can see your transformation in 3D before beginning treatment.
Get the Best Service
Dr. Carpenter only takes on procedures if he considers himself at the top of the field regarding education and overall aptitude. He offers a wide range of services because he dedicates time to learning about each procedure and ensures his skills are up to par. For instance, he has over 500 hours of dental implant education to deliver the best dental implant results to patients.
Explore Restorative Options
If you have oral health issues, like cavities, gum disease, or a missing tooth, a cosmetic dentist will have to refer you to a general dentist or a specialist for restorative treatments, such as implant surgery, before your smile makeover. Our office offers general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments under one roof, including implant surgery, so you don't have to be referred elsewhere.
