Smile Makeover in Tampa, FL

Do you cover your mouth when you laugh or feel reluctant to show your teeth in photos? Does meeting new people make you self-conscious about your smile? A hesitation to smile can impact our self-esteem and relationships with others. After all, smiles are the gateway to social bonds. A smile conveys friendliness, confidence, and a willingness to connect. If you aren’t fully satisfied with your smile, Dr. Cabrera can design a tailored solution. A smile makeover can transform your smile, boosting your confidence and leaving a lasting impression in social and professional interactions.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a set of procedures used together to enhance your smile’s appearance. It incorporates cosmetic dentistry techniques to improve the overall aesthetics and function of the teeth and gums. The goal is to create a more attractive and confident smile that aligns with your preferences and facial features. Smile makeovers can address many issues, including tooth loss, discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps.

While full-mouth reconstruction also uses a series of treatments to correct widespread issues throughout the mouth, its purpose is different. Full-mouth reconstruction is a restorative treatment that primarily aims to address functional problems. On the other hand, the fundamental purpose of a smile makeover is to provide cosmetic enhancement.

With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Cabrera has developed the skills and techniques to transform your smile. Whether you want a subtle enhancement or a dramatic transformation, you can look forward to newfound confidence following your procedure.

  • Facial symmetry: Considering the symmetry of the face and adjusting elements of the smile accordingly.

  • Tooth proportions: Maintaining proper tooth size and shape to create a balanced smile.
  • Alignment and spacing: Correcting misalignments and addressing gaps between teeth through orthodontic treatments or veneers.
  • Gum health: Ensuring healthy gums and adjusting their contour to enhance the overall aesthetics of the smile.
  • Missing teeth replacement: Providing solutions for missing teeth, such as mini dental implants, bridges, or dentures, to restore a complete and functional smile.

In planning your treatment, Dr. Cabrera will ensure that the smile achieved will be visually pleasing and function effectively.

What to Expect at Your Consultation

During a smile makeover consultation, you will share your concerns and explain your smile vision. Dr. Cabrera will perform a comprehensive evaluation to understand your unique dental characteristics and aesthetic preferences. She will analyze the spacing and alignment of your teeth, face shape, features, skin tone, and any concerns you share. This thorough examination is the foundation for a collaborative design process, where you actively participate in deciding the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Dr. Cabrera’s patient-centered approach promotes a personalized experience where your preferences and concerns are carefully considered throughout treatment.

Dr. Cabrera will then recommend potential treatments, such as teeth whitening, veneers, mini dental implants, or other procedures tailored to address the cosmetic issues. Your input and preferences will guide the development of a personalized treatment plan. The consultation provides an opportunity to ask questions, express concerns, and gain a clear understanding of the proposed procedures and their expected outcomes. Ultimately, the goal is to create a smile makeover plan that addresses cosmetic imperfections and aligns with your vision for a confident and appealing smile.

Common Procedures

In designing your treatment plan, Dr. Cabrera may combine procedures to best meet your needs. She will incorporate elements that are sustainable over time. This helps to promote a healthy, beautiful smile for many years. The following are common procedures used in transformative smile makeovers.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are foundational tools in cosmetic and restorative dentistry that replace missing teeth. These narrow dental implants are small but sturdy anchors for artificial teeth. Whereas the size and design of traditional implants make them unsuitable for many, mini dental implants cater to a wide range of patients. Because they are half the size of standard implants, they can fit in jawbones with reduced volume. The implants also halt additional bone loss by helping to stimulate the jawbone and keep it strong. A healthy jaw helps prevent changes to your face’s appearance.

Mini implants are also ideal for those seeking a minimally invasive procedure, immediate results, and swift recovery. They are remarkably long-lasting and durable, and they cut costs substantially when compared to traditional implants. Plus, their versatility means Dr. Cabrera can use mini implants to support false crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.

As a mini implant specialist, Dr. Cabrera uses her expertise to provide innovative dental solutions, ensuring optimal comfort, stability, and satisfaction in restoring patient smiles.

Crowns are often used to protect teeth that are severely decayed, broken, chipped, or worn. However, crowns are also used to conceal discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening methods. If you have an old, noticeable crown or filling, Dr. Cabrera can replace it so that your restoration is more discreet.

To place a crown, Dr. Cabrera will shape the tooth by removing some enamel, take impressions, and determine the proper shade. Your custom crown is then fabricated in a dental lab. When it is ready, Dr. Cabrera will securely bond it to your tooth. Your tooth will be instantly more beautiful and functional.

Dental Bridges

If you have lost one or more teeth, a dental bridge can fill the space in your smile. Bridges are a string of artificial teeth that attach to existing healthy teeth beside the gap. The neighboring teeth are prepared the same way a tooth is readied for a dental crown. While tooth-supported bridges are a traditional approach, Dr. Cabrera prefers mini implant supported bridges. These bridges have all the advantages of mini implants and do not put excess pressure on healthy teeth. The mini implants anchor the bridge without causing damage that may need to be corrected later. Implant bridges create a uniform and natural-looking smile that will last for many years.


Severe tooth loss in the upper arch, lower arch, or both can impact our self-esteem, creating a psychological barrier to smiling. Those struggling with significant tooth loss understand this reality. Dentures replace an entire arch of teeth to restore bite function and improve smile aesthetics. While traditional dentures depend on the structures of the oral cavity for support, implant dentures are stabilized by mini implants. This approach ensures unrivaled security and comfort.

Additionally, the implants’ jawbone stimulation prevents cosmetic concerns associated with dentures. Over time, those who wear traditional dentures will likely experience facial collapse, or “denture face,” because of jawbone resorption. Mini implants prevent a sagging facial appearance by keeping the jawbone strong. So, implant dentures not only complete your smile but also ensure long-term aesthetic appeal.
