What Affects Smile Makeover Costs

The Type of Procedures

The type of procedures in your treatment plan will affect the overall cost. Minor treatments, such as teeth whitening, generally cost less than more complex procedures, such as porcelain veneers.

The Number of Procedures

More treatments typically mean higher costs. Patients who choose teeth whitening and dental bonding will generally incur a lower treatment cost than those who choose to upgrade their smiles with teeth whitening, veneers, and gum contouring.


Our office uses the latest dental technology to provide the highest quality of care, including digital x-raysCEREC®, and laser technology. Some of our technologies can save you money by reducing lab fees. However, others may add to your final cost.


More aesthetic materials, such as dental porcelain, often cost more than other options. For example, veneers are typically more expensive than bonding. However, ceramic provides more realistic and durable results.

Invest in Your Confidence With a Smile Makeover

Your smile plays an important role in your overall self-confidence, so our entire team wants to make cosmetic dentistry procedures accessible to those who desire them. During your consultation at our office, our friendly staff will be happy to work with you to determine a means of payment that fits your budget comfortably.

If any treatments included in your plan such as Invisalign, gum disease treatment, or a filling qualify for coverage under your insurance plan, you can count on us to work with your provider to secure maximum coverage.

A 5-Star Review for Our Practice

"Phenomenal experience from start to finish. I was in and out quickly, the hygienist (I think her name was Angela) was friendly and gentle with the cleaning, dentist was kind and thorough. I am so pleased to have found this office! A+"

Your Treatment Timeline ​

Each smile makeover is personalized, meaning no two treatment timelines are exactly alike. Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt can provide an estimated timeline after your initial consultation.

Initial Consultation

First, you will meet with one of our doctors to discuss your concerns, goals, and budget.

Restorative Treatments

If you have oral health issues, such as extensive decay or gum disease, Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt may recommend restorative treatments before beginning your makeover.

Cosmetic Treatments

Depending on the number of cosmetic procedures and the current state of your smile, your makeover may only require a single appointment. However, most smile makeovers take several sessions to complete.

What Do I Need to Qualify for Treatment?

Multiple Issues

Our doctors typically recommend a smile makeover for patients in the Charlotte area who want to address multiple aesthetic concerns with a comprehensive treatment plan.

Good Oral Health

It is important to be in good oral health before pursuing cosmetic changes. Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt can examine your teeth and gums and determine if you need restorative treatments before beginning your makeover.

Willing to Invest in Your Smile

Insurance won't cover the cost of purely cosmetic procedures, so interested patients should be sure they are ready to pay out-of-pocket costs. Our practice offers attractive financing options that can make the smile of your dreams affordable.

Simple Tips for Maintaining Your Results

A smile makeover requires investing your time and money, so our dentists want to help you maintain your results as long as possible. To keep your smile looking great and feeling healthy, you should:

  • Brush your teeth twice each day, even if you have porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, or dental implants
  • Floss your teeth daily, but floss front to back (rather than up and down) to avoid dislodging your dental work 
  • Visit our Charlotte dentists every six months so that we can assess the health of your smile
  • Minimize foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as red wine, tea, coffee, and tomato sauces

Depending on which treatments you undergo, our dentists will provide a detailed set of aftercare instructions to help you maintain a healthy smile for years to come.
