What Is a Smile Makeover?

cosmetic_dentistry_2 _ Synergy Dental Care _ Gillette, Wyoming

How important is your smile? When you meet someone, it’s likely the first thing they notice. It’s an outward reflection of how you feel on the inside. If your smile is reluctant or self-conscious, that affects how people see you and treat you.

Cosmetic dentistry is less about having “perfect” teeth — though we will do our best to give that to you too — than it is about having a smile that you want to show off and flaunt freely!

At Synergy Dental Center of Gillette, WY, we offer a full menu of cosmetic procedures to transform your smile. Maybe your grin’s in generally good shape and you need just a little touchup. And that’s fine — all of our procedures are available a la carte.

But perhaps you have more going on and would benefit from multiple cosmetic techniques. That’s where a Smile Makeover comes in. And it is just what it sounds like: a full transformation, using whichever cosmetic procedures you and Dr. Porter decide will give you the smile of your dreams. Goodbye, embarrassment. You won’t be able to stop smiling.

Synergy’s Smile Makeover Menu


At your consultation, Dr. Porter will conduct a full examination, and you will discuss what you would like your finished smile to look like. You will together form a treatment plan using a combination of the following procedures.


Teeth Contouring. This is a simple and painless technique that involves removing small amounts of enamel from the ends of teeth to alter their shape or length. It’s a subtle but effective way to smooth small imperfections and repair chips or rough edges. Because Dr. Porter will be removing only the outer layers of the teeth, no anesthesia is required.


Crown Lengthening. This procedure, in which Dr. Porter removes small amounts of gum tissue to expose more of the tooth, is sometimes done to prepare a tooth for a filling or crown. But it can also be done for cosmetic purposes.


Gummy Smile Treatment. Are you unhappy with how prominent your gums appear when you smile? At Synergy Dental Center, we can sculpt your gumline so that it looks just how you want it using a process called gum reshaping therapy.  


Teeth Whitening. We offer two excellent teeth whitening systems by Kor. Our in-office treatment will give you the results you want in just one visit. If you are in a hurry for your brilliant white smile, this is definitely the way to go!

The take-home kit takes a little more time, but the end results are just as good. It utilizes whitening trays custom made for your mouth, so they are comfortable and more effective than the store-bought variety. The professional-strength gel contains more whitening agent than drugstore brands, so it works faster and better. The in-office and take-home kits can even be used together.


Orthodontics. Dr. Porter has gone through extensive training in orthodontics, and we are proud to be able to offer several options to our patients. Six Month Smiles braces are discreet — using clear brackets and tooth-colored wires — and do their job in (you guessed it) six months. ClearCorrect and Invisalign both utilize clear removable aligners to move your teeth into the desired position over the course of about a year. Dr. Porter will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each orthodontic product, and which one may make the most sense for you.


Veneers. Veneers are a surefire way to a truly showstopping smile. A veneer is a thin, tooth-colored shell that is placed over the front of the tooth, covering discoloration, chips, gaps, worn-down teeth, and even minor alignment problems. At Synergy Dental Center, we offer three veneer types:

  • Traditional porcelain veneers require the removal of a thin layer of enamel from the teeth and are permanent.
  • eMax Veneers are extra thin and need minimal prep, but are considered to be stronger than traditional veneers.
  • EasySmile LifeLike Veneers are prepless, meaning they do not require enamel removal. They are made in-office and are less expensive, and are removeable.

Botox and Dermal Fillers. We can even help get rid of your laugh lines and wrinkles with Botox or dermal fillers! Your skin will be firmer and younger looking with these simple procedures.
