How does a smile makeover work?
If you choose to have a smile makeover at Lake Forest Smiles, you receive a customized treatment plan that outlines each procedure, cost, and timeline to achieve results. We compose this plan to meet your specific aesthetic goals, while also factoring in your oral health, schedule, and budget. You may need several treatments that must be scheduled several weeks apart to reach your goals. We meet with every patient for a consultation at the first step in a smile makeover. If you want to have your makeover complete by a certain date, such as a special upcoming event like a wedding or reunion, you should communicate this to your cosmetic dentist in Lake Forest during the consultation. While individualized for each patient, every smile makeover we perform has the same end goal—to create the beautiful smile you always wanted.
Smile makeovers may include:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
- Laser gum recontouring
- Metal-free restorations
What makes someone a good candidate for a smile makeover?
As long as you have good oral health, you can benefit from a smile makeover. Certain pre-existing conditions like periodontal disease should be well controlled before beginning cosmetic dental work.
Is a smile makeover right for you? If you can answer yes to any combination, you should consider a smile makeover.

- Does your smile limit your professional and/or social opportunities?

How much does a smile makeover cost?
At Lake Forest Smiles, we determine the cost of each procedure on a case-by-case basis. The exact cost of your smile makeover depends on the treatments you want, the materials involved, and the complexity of those procedures. We will outline each procedure’s cost in your proposed treatment plan, giving you the chance to factor the price into your budget. Also, with a smile makeover, you can pay for each treatment as it happens rather than cover the cost of the entire smile makeover in a single lump sum.
For payment, we accept cash, check, and major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also offer third party financing through CareCredit, and LendingClub, which covers the cost of healthcare-related expenses at the time of treatment. You then repay the lender by making monthly installment payments, usually at little to no interest.
