Change Your Life With a Smile Makeover

By: Dr. Jeffrey A. Weller


If you feel hesitant to smile because of dental imperfections, a smile makeover might be the transformative experience you're looking for. At Weller Dental in Chicago, we specialize in comprehensive smile makeovers that not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also enhance your overall quality of life.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover refers to a customized set of dental procedures aimed at enhancing the appearance of your smile. This could involve correcting a wide range of issues, such as discoloration, misalignment, uneven gum lines, or even missing teeth. At Weller Dental, our experienced team utilizes a blend of treatments like laser gum contouring, porcelain veneers, ICON white spot treatments, ZOOM! whitening, dental implants, and Invisalign to achieve stunning, life-changing results.

Laser Gum Contouring

One aspect of a smile makeover is perfecting the gum line. Uneven or excessively visible gums can overshadow the beauty of your teeth. Laser gum contouring is a quick and painless procedure that reshapes the gum line to better frame your teeth, enhancing the overall symmetry and attractiveness of your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are highly prized in smile makeovers for their ability to transform cosmetic flaws into a perfect, dazzling white smile. Veneers can correct chips, cracks, gaps, and severe discoloration that traditional whitening cannot address. They are custom-made to match the shape and color that best suits your appearance, providing a natural, long-lasting solution.

ICON White Spot Treatment

White spots on teeth can detract from an otherwise healthy-looking smile. These blemishes can be the result of fluorosis, demineralization, or past orthodontic treatment. The ICON white spot treatment offers a minimally invasive alternative to more extensive cosmetic work, effectively blending the spots with the surrounding enamel without the need for drilling or anesthesia.

ZOOM! Whitening

For a quick and impressive enhancement to your smile, ZOOM! whitening provides dramatic results. This professional teeth whitening treatment can lighten your teeth several shades in just one office visit, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve their smile swiftly and effectively.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth not only affect your smile's appearance but also its function. Dental implants provide a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution to missing teeth. They replace the entire structure of the tooth, from root to crown, which helps to preserve the jawbone and facial structure. Implants are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a permanent solution to tooth loss.


For those looking to straighten their teeth without the inconvenience and aesthetic impact of traditional braces, Invisalign offers an excellent alternative. These clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and cleaning. They are an integral part of many smile makeovers, especially for adults and teenagers who are self-conscious about wearing braces.

The Benefits of a Smile Makeover

The benefits of a smile makeover extend beyond just cosmetic enhancements. Here are several ways a smile makeover at Weller Dental can change your life:

Boosted Self-Confidence: The most immediate impact of a smile makeover is often a significant boost in self-esteem. Looking in the mirror and loving your smile can make a profound difference in your personal and professional life.

Improved Oral Health: Many smile makeover procedures also improve your oral health. Straight, well-aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Healthy gums contribute to overall dental health and help prevent periodontal disease.

Enhanced Social and Professional Interactions: A bright, appealing smile can make you seem more approachable and confident, two traits that are invaluable in social and professional settings. Whether you're at a job interview, a social gathering, or simply engaging in your daily activities, a beautiful smile can leave a lasting impression.

Long-Lasting Results: With proper care and maintenance, the results of a smile makeover can last many years. Our team at Weller Dental provides detailed aftercare instructions and ongoing support to ensure your new smile remains vibrant and healthy.
