What Is Smile Design?

Do you avoid smiling in photos or feel self-conscious about how your teeth look when interacting with others? At Westgate Family Dental in Austin, TX, we offer Smile Design to help patients achieve straighter, whiter, and more naturally beautiful-looking smiles!

Smile Design is the planning and treatment process to make-over your smile. It is entirely customized to your unique needs and goals. In the end, a Smile Design will improve both the appearance of your smile and your overall oral health!

First, we will have a personalized planning session about what is needed to transform your smile. If necessary, the process will begin with addressing any gum disease, which can interfere with achieving your cosmetic smile goals. Then, we’ll decide together if you would benefit from metal braces, clear aligners, professional teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, bonding, veneers, crowns, and/or dental implants.

Your treatment plan can consist of a combination of orthodontic treatment, restorative treatments, and cosmetic enhancements. Our experienced dental team will carefully consider your gumline visibility and the shapes, alignment, and color of your teeth to determine which services will be most effective in helping you meet your goals within your budget.
