Your smile is more than just your teeth. Why you might want to consider a smile makeover

As Aristotle famously said, “The whole is more than the sum of its parts”. Let’s apply that thought to your smile. Made up of teeth, gums, lips, and surrounding bone structure, your smile is so much more than just part of your body.

You communicate through your facial expressions. Your smile puts people at ease, welcomes them, and displays confidence. Your smile can cross language barriers, generation gaps, and cultures. 

What’s involved in a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a term for a number of dental procedures that can enhance your smile.

Teeth whitening

This is a quick, comfortable, safe and effective way to beautify your smile.

Dental veneers

These are great smile boosters. Made out of porcelain, they are super-thin facings that are fastened to your teeth. With them you can whiten your teeth, close gaps, fix chips and cover breaks easily and affordably.

Dental Implants

They replace missing teeth or tooth roots. They help to preserve or restore the bone in your jaw, which, in turn, preserves or restores the shape of your face.

Dental Crowns

These bring strength, health and beauty to broken, decayed, or stained teeth.


They fill the gaps left by one or more missing teeth.

Adult orthodontics

These are used to straighten your teeth giving you a beautiful, straight smile.
At Top Down Dental in San Jose/Los Gatos, Dr. Nancy Nehawandian will examine your teeth, jaws and facial structure. From there, she’ll recommend the treatments that will work best to give you the smile of your dreams.

What will “a better smile” do for you?

A straight, white smile signifies youth, health, and intelligence. In today’s world, appearances are important. Whether you’re helping a customer, facing a job interview, going on a date, presenting to a client or motivating your kids, if you know look good, your confidence will support you though a challenging task. First impressions stick. They say a smile is the window to your soul. When you have the confidence in your looks to smile brightly, you’ll convey the person you want people to see.

A beautiful smile will boost your confidence, improve your love, land you that new job, or simply encourage you to show it off by smiling more.
