What Is
a Smile Makeover?


A smile makeover is a custom-designed treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic procedures to fully enhance the appearance of your smile. At our Albuquerque dental office, a smile makeover can use treatments targeting your teeth and gums, like dental bonding, teeth whitening, and gum contouring.

Dr. Slaman Explains His Smile Makeover Approach

Dr. James Slaman can combine cosmetic treatments for a custom smile makeover plan that dramatically enhances the appearance of your smile. During your free consultation, he will evaluate the health and appearance of your smile to determine which treatments would most benefit you. Your treatment may include teeth whitening, dental bonding, or orthodontic therapy.

Why Combine Multiple Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?

Our Albuquerque patients often decide to bundle together several cosmetic procedures at once. That's because a smile makeover from our team is more:


At our office, it's less expensive for you to pair cosmetic dentistry treatments in a smile makeover, as opposed to doing them over time. Not to mention, we accept CareCredit® financing, so you can make the cost more manageable.


With a smile makeover, you have more potential to completely change your smile. It combines treatments like veneers and gum contouring to refine insecurities concerning both your teeth and your gums.


One of the biggest advantages of a cosmetic dental makeover is that it's completely customized to your goals, smile, and budget. Our dentist will work to specifically address your concerns, like discoloration, an uneven gumline, or crooked teeth.

How Do I Know If I'm a Smile Makeover Candidate?

The only way to find out for sure is to visit Dr. Slaman for a free consultation. Until then, it can help to know what we look for in an eligible smile makeover patient:

No Unresolved TMJ Problems

We like to think ahead. Because the grinding and clenching from TMD can damage both natural teeth and cosmetic dentistry treatments like bonding and veneers, you have to address any temporomandibular joint problems before seeking a smile makeover.

Strong, Well-Maintained Teeth

As any good cosmetic dentist will tell you, healthy teeth are a crucial foundation for a smile makeover. After all, you want to have the best possible foundation for treatments like dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or orthodontics.

Healthy Gum Tissue

The health of your gums is just as important as the health of your teeth. Before we can plan treatments like gum contouring, we will ensure that your gums are free from common but treatable dental conditions like gum disease.

Ineligible for a Smile Makeover?


Even if you're dealing with problems like missing teeth, gingivitis, or teeth grinding, you've met an Albuquerque team that can help. Our dentist is known for offering comprehensive care, including dental implants, periodontal treatment, and mouth guards. Once your oral health is under control, then he can safely begin planning your custom smile makeover.

Smile Makeover Timeline

Because each treatment plan is unique, different patients experience different treatment timelines. Patients undergoing relatively simple procedures like teeth whitening can achieve their newly upgraded smile in two appointments or less, while patients with more advanced concerns like a missing tooth or crooked teeth may require several months to achieve the desired results. Regardless of how long each unique treatment plan takes, every patient can expect the following stages of treatment:
To truly personalize your treatment, our thoughtful dentist will take great care when planning your treatment. 
To truly personalize your treatment, our thoughtful dentist will take great care when planning your treatment. 


During your free consultation at our office in Albuquerque, NM, Dr. Slaman will examine your teeth and gums, analyze your overall oral health, and ask questions about your cosmetic goals before recommending which treatments he thinks are right for you.


We believe it is important for patients to be able to visualize their results. At the end of your consultation, Dr. Slaman will use simulation software to show you an image of what your smile will look like at the end of your treatment. He can also create a 3D wax-up or temporary restoration, which you can try on.


Once you and our dentist settle on a treatment plan, we will schedule your procedures. Some treatments, like whitening, may be able to be completed on the same day as your consultation, while others require more time.


At the end of your smile makeover journey, you will have a stunning new smile that you can be excited to share with your friends and family.
