Smile Makeover Candidates, Treatment Options, & Planning

In this video, Dr. James Slaman discusses smile makeover candidates, which cosmetic dentistry treatments are available, and the treatment planning process. Our office uses minimally invasive techniques and the latest technology. Patients can expect a more beautiful smile after their smile makeover.

Financing Options Available

Because smile makeovers are considered cosmetic, most insurance providers will not cover treatment. However, our Albuquerque dental practice offers CareCredit® and in-office financing plans to help patients pay for treatment. Contact us today to learn more about financing options.

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:
Because each smile makeover is so personalized, our cosmetic dentist will take great care when planning your treatment. 
Because each smile makeover is so personalized, our cosmetic 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, gums, and 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 will also create a three-dimensional wax-up and temporary restorations, 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 will be excited to share with your friends and family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Slaman for several years now and I have never been more pleased over the years with the quality of his work! He gives you a perfect smile! His office staff can not be beat! They are awesome to work with on getting an appointment. I am moving soon to Arizona and I will miss the quality of care I have received at this office. I may just have to drive back for my future dental work.
