A smile makeover can be as minimal as whitening and some minor bonding to a few teeth, up to a full mouth makeover. Patients desiring changes to the overall appearance of their smile often require treatment to a number of teeth. If a significant shade change is made to the teeth with porcelain or composite material, you will likely need to treat the number of teeth that show when you smile. This is often between 8 and 12 top teeth.
