Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What does a smile makeover include?

No two smile makeovers are the same. Dr. Nishime offers complete and partial makeovers personalized to match your aesthetic goals and dental health.

A smile makeover merely means having at least one cosmetic dentistry procedure to enhance your smile. Smile makeovers include many procedures, from basic teeth whitening to complete mouth reconstruction.

How do cosmetic dentists enhance smiles?

With a passion for creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Nishime offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including:

  • Teeth whitening with KoR®, Zoom!, or professional-grade kits to take home
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants with Biohorizons or Nobel Biocare implants
  • Dental bonding with a composite resin that blends in with your natural teeth
  • Orthodontics
  • Laser dentistry
  • Dental crowns


Remember, no two smile makeovers are the same. Your makeover might contain one of these options or a combination of treatments over time. Dr. Nishime helps you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each approach to help you determine the best procedure for you.

What is involved in a smile makeover?

To begin, Dr. Nishime meets with you to understand what you'd like to achieve and to explain your options for cosmetic dentistry. To achieve the best results, he will evaluate:

  • Teeth alignment, size, and color
  • Gum tissue size, shape, and health
  • Skin tone
  • Facial appearance
  • Hair color


Then, it's time to discuss your choices for a smile makeover. Dr. Nishime likes to educate patients and works with you to devise the right makeover treatment plan.

For a small fee, Dr. Nishime can show you what the final result of your smile makeover might look like so you can decide whether or not you want to proceed. Enjoy what you see? Keep moving with your smile makeover! The amount you already paid will be applied to the cost of your procedure.

Can I afford cosmetic dentistry?

Dr. Nishime believes in a conservative approach to dentistry and won’t recommend a procedure unless it benefits the health and beauty of your smile. He also thinks that cosmetic dentistry should be accessible and affordable to all, no matter who you are or what you do.
