Patients will come in and ask to have a smile makeover. And there are several services that are available, depending on the needs and wants of the patients. Oftentimes, the smile is ... usually, patients want to have their teeth whiter and so we can whiten the teeth with either whitening services, bleaching of the teeth, or with porcelain veneers and crowns. We also will look at teeth that are decayed and we can fix those decayed teeth with bonding—cosmetic bonding is an option. We can use porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns and provide patients with the smile that they want.
One of the challenges that I find most satisfying is to get inside a patient's head and talk to them and determine what it is that they want out of their smile and how they want their teeth to look. Everybody says, Well, I want better teeth, but it's a challenge to determine what that means to them and so, we spend a lot of time talking with them and we have a questionnaire that we hand out that asks them to look in a mirror and evaluate their teeth, evaluate their smile, and we can spend an awful lot of time trying to determine just exactly what it is that'll make the patients happy.
There's so many wonderful ways of fixing a smile that there's no one cure or way of doing it. Every patient is unique. Every patient's an individual and it's always fun and rewarding when we're all done to see the differences.
Among factors he’ll take into account:
- Your goals
- Your expectations
- The condition of your teeth
- Your budget

Combine Services to Get Your Dream Smile
- Dental veneers – Because dental veneers cover the entire front surface of your teeth, they conceal chips, cracks, stains, and small gaps.
- Teeth whitening -You can whiten your teeth at home with treatments from Venus White.
- Invisalign orthodontics – You’ll get a straight smile without unsightly metal and wires with Invisalign.
- Teeth contouring – We can reshape your teeth to remove small flaws.
- Dental crowns – A metal-free dental crown covers your whole tooth, so it can fix dental damage like breaks, cracks, or discoloration without compromising the look of your smile.
- Dental bridges – A bridge can replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth.
- Dental implants – Combined with a crown, a bridge, or dentures, dental implants are a natural-looking tooth replacement option. They feel and function like your own teeth too.
In some cases, you’ll have multiple options. For instance, while teeth whitening treatments will brighten a smile, dental veneers or even a dental crown may be a better option for certain types of discoloration. Dr. Callow can walk you through all your options and help determine which ones will work best for your makeover.
He can even create wax-ups so you can try your new smile on for size.
