About Smile Makeovers
You deserve to have a beautiful smile that you can be proud of. Enhancing your smile through cosmetic dentistry can have a profound effect on the rest of your face, making you look younger, healthier, and more attractive. Dr. Fredericks, our talented cosmetic dentist in Woodland Hills, CA, offers smile makeovers at Southern Cal Smiles. Thanks to training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute, membership to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and years of practice, Dr. Fredericks has extensive knowledge of aesthetic dental treatments. When putting together a treatment plan for your smile makeover, Dr. Fredericks will pay close attention to your facial appearance, noting your skin tone, hair color, the shape of your lips, and your unique features. She will then create a customized plan that suits your needs and produces the results you desire. Your treatment plan will take into account the color of your teeth, their spacing and alignment, any missing or damaged teeth, and the balance between your teeth and gums. Since bright white teeth are a staple of a beautiful smile, tooth-colored restorations are essential to a smile makeover. Dr. Fredericks does not use gray metal restorations, as they are not only an eyesore but contain mercury, which is toxic to your health.
Depending on your cosmetic dentistry needs, your smile makeover could include a combination of two or more of the following dental treatments and procedures:
- Dental bonding to close small spaces between the teeth
- Dental bridges to close gaps left by missing teeth
- Dental crowns to support and strengthen a cracked or chipped tooth
- Dental implants to permanently replace a missing tooth
- In-office or home teeth whitening treatment to improve the color of your teeth and lift stains
- Invisalign to improve the spacing and alignment of your teeth
- Tooth-colored dental fillings to replace old metal fillings
- Veneers to even out the size and shape of your front teeth

"Dr. Susan and her team went above and beyond the call of duty. I've had the best dental experience of my life! Dr. Susan is an incredible human being, too, in addition to her expertise.

They are so detail-oriented, even down to playing the best background music for the patient's comfort, exceptionally friendly, and very personable. God answered my prayers in finding a great dentist in my area. Patient, Suzanne H."- S.H. / Yelp / Jan 21, 2019
"My experience with Dr. Fredericks has been nothing short of fantastic. I have always been terrified on the dentist and avoided getting the care I needed as a result. Dr. Fredericks is talented and cares about you getting the best possible outcome. I've wanted to cosmetically correct my front teeth for years but never felt comfortable with my dentists plan. I came to see Dr. Fredericks and am thrilled with the work she's done. The office staff is great as is the hygienist. I do not plan on seeing anyone else for my dental care in the future. So glad I found her!"- M.M. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2019
What to Expect
A smile makeover begins with a consultation with Dr. Fredericks to discuss your concerns with your current smile and your smile makeover goals. After assessing the health and condition of your mouth, she will work with you to create your custom smile makeover treatment plan. Once the plan is created, Dr. Fredericks will help you schedule your appointment(s) for your cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
Once your smile makeover is complete, you should talk to Dr. Fredericks about creating a good home oral care routine to maintain the health and appearance of your teeth. With proper care, a smile makeover can have long-lasting effects. Depending on the treatments performed during the smile makeover, Dr. Fredericks may recommend special dental products or more frequent dental exams and cleanings.
Smile makeovers usually include cosmetic procedures that are not covered by dental insurance, but some restorative procedures may be covered, so our office will confirm your benefits and coverage to determine their personal cost. To help all of our patients afford their best smile, Southern Cal Smiles accepts several payment options and we offer financing, which can be discussed during the consultation.
