Smile Makeover La Jolla

Your smile is an expression of your unique personality, so it can make a positive or negative first impression. In addition to interfering with functional issues like your bite, a less than ideal smile can impact your self-esteem, social life, and even your professional life.

With more than 35 years of cosmetic dentistry experience, Dr. David Sabourin has a long and successful track record creating smile makeovers in La Jolla at his elegant and soothing practice.

Combining extensive skills and state-of-the-art technology with an artistic eye for aesthetics, Dr. Sabourin can restore the beautiful smile you thought was long lost or the picture-perfect smile you’ve always imagined. He’ll create a customized smile makeover treatment plan based on your oral health, type of dental concerns that need to be remedied, and your own vision of a dream smile.

What is a Smile Makeover?

Customized smile enhancement in San Diego involves combining different cosmetic dentistry and restorative procedures to transform the overall appearance of your smile, while secondarily correcting functional issues. The goal is to improve the look of each individual tooth and also create a symmetrical smile that complements your facial structure, lips, and skin tone.

Because a dental makeover in San Diego is customized, it’s a versatile option for correcting a wide range of cosmetic dental issues. It’s an equally ideal choice for correcting small imperfections such as stained or chipped teeth or restoring more significant issues like crooked or missing teeth.

Our Smile Makeover Procedures

Porcelain Veneers

When natural teeth have cosmetic flaws such as gaps, chips, minor crookedness, or major discoloration, porcelain veneers are a one-stop solution to remedy all of these issues. A veneer is a thin shell that covers the front surface of a single tooth. During the procedure, Dr. Sabourin removes a minimal amount of tooth enamel to ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance. The porcelain veneers are hand fabricated by highly skilled dental lab technicians to seamlessly blend in with your surrounding teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Sabourin offers several different top-rated professional teeth whitening options that can brighten your teeth by multiple shades in just a single session! Professional-grade treatment penetrates deep into the inner layers of your teeth to remove both deep and surface-level stains. If you prefer, we also offer portable, custom-made trays filled with whitening gel that you can wear at home.


Invisalign uses a series of BPA-free plastic aligners to gently and discreetly straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. The clear aligners are virtually invisible and can easily be removed for cleaning, flossing, brushing, and eating. While the entire process can take as little as six months, average treatment lasts about 12–18 months.

Cosmetic Bonding

During cosmetic bonding, a strong, tooth-colored resin is applied to the affected area and carefully shaped to blend in with your natural tooth. A special light is used to harden the material and make it a permanent part of your tooth. The tooth-colored composite resin is the same material used to fill cavities. This tooth-conserving treatment improves aesthetics by repairing or concealing chips, cracks, wear, or discoloration.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are porcelain tooth caps that restore teeth with extensive decay or improve the cosmetic appearance of chipped, worn down, misshapen, small, or severely discolored teeth. Dental bridges are a cost-effective option to replace one or more missing teeth in any part of the mouth to restore proper function and natural aesthetics. Dental bridges require a false tooth in the empty socket that attaches to crowned adjacent teeth on each side.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the number one tooth replacement solution due to their superior strength, versatility, and longevity. By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide the strength and stability to comfortably eat all the foods you love. Additionally, they prevent bone loss and help maintain and stimulate new bone, thereby preventing undesirable changes to your facial features.

What Are the Benefits of a Smile Makeover?

Some of the main benefits of a smile makeover include:

  • Improved smile aesthetics
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Improved ability to eat
  • Better overall oral health

What is the Smile Makeover Process Like?

The first step in your smile makeover journey starts with a complimentary cosmetic consultation. At your initial consultation, Dr. Sabourin performs a thorough dental evaluation to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy, takes diagnostic imaging, and asks you about your smile goals. Next, Dr. Sabourin creates a detailed treatment plan and discusses all the steps involved in your smile makeover so you know what to expect from start to finish. Smile simulation technology enables fine-tuning your customized smile makeover while providing peace of mind that the end result will meet—or exceed your expectations.

How Much Does a Smile Makeover Cost?

Smile makeovers are tailored to your specific needs, so the cost varies depending on what services are required. For example, teeth whitening costs less than veneers, but you may need the latter if your teeth have severe discoloration or other flaws. Likewise, a dental bridge may cost less than a dental implant, however, the latter provides unrivaled cosmetic and functional benefits and may be a better option.
