Fall Events Where Your Smile Matters

There’s never a right time for having an unsightly smile, but here are a few reasons why you could use a smile makeover before fall arrives.

  • School pictures and work photos: If you’re attending school, Fall is when they take your school pictures for parents or yearbooks. If you’re done with school and working, Fall is often when they take photos for their website, ID cards, and so on. Like it or not, there’s a chance your smile will be immortalized in a photo come September or October.
  • Parent-teacher conferences: It doesn’t matter which end of this you’re on, conferences in Fall can be very important. You’ll dress up for these conferences, so why ignore how your smile looks?
  • Halloween: From wearing costumes to attending big parties, this holiday puts a lot of attention on how you look. What kind of smile do you want to show?
  • Thanksgiving: Coming at the end of Fall, this huge holiday usually includes sitting down at a big meal with family and friends. Sometimes, this is the only time of year you can see these people. What kind of smile do you want to show them?

That’s why you need to call your Birmingham dentist at 205-545-8007 today to get a smile makeover. You can get your teeth looking great in time for conferences, photos, Thanksgiving, and more. But you need to call soon because some cosmetic dentistry treatments can take a little while to be complete.

What Is A Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover really is just a solid plan for doing what’s needed to transform your smile. Think of it like fixing a house. If you need to fix a leaky roof and a damaged wood floor, it doesn’t make sense to fix the floor while the roof is still leaking. You need a plan to make sure you get done what needs to get done but in the right order.

The same is true for cosmetic dentistry. For example, a dental implant cannot be whitened. So if you’re getting a dental implant and teeth whitening, get the whitening first. Then your dental implant will be made to match your new, healthier shade of white.

Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments available from our Birmingham dentist.


This treatment lift stains that have turned your smile dark and dingy. Years of drinking coffee, tea, wine, and more can be erased, leaving you with a bright, healthy-looking smile. That way, your smile looks great in the fall photos you’ll probably be smiling in.


Here, our Birmingham dentist will artfully apply a thin layer of resin to the front of your teeth. This does a few things to improve your smile. First, it hides stains because the resin is colored to look like healthy enamel. But it’s also thick enough to fill in cracks and chips in your teeth, covering up any damage you managed to get over the years.


A long-lasting and more thorough version compared to dental bonding, dental veneers are made to fit your teeth individually. Once bonded to the front of your teeth, dental veneers hide stains, damage, and even small gaps between teeth so your smile looks amazing for Thanksgiving dinner.
