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
"If you want a personal dentist with a professional office personnel and the highest quality of care this is the place!! I have had dental nightmares in the past and it took me a while (even with insurance) to walk in an office. Dr. Susan STANDS BEHIND HER WORK, and the receptionist ALWAYS sends reminders including an email with a calendar interface for my Samsung phone. Accommodating schedules too!!! Open some Saturdays and late Wednesday night. As a person who travels for business...this is a HUGE plus! Higeinists are all caring (yes...learned the proper way to floss-yes THAT is a thing)...As long as I am in this area I will stick with this office of great people! Don't hesitate, just make an appointment!"- J.M. / Yelp / Jan 16, 2019

"My life has changed so much since I came to see Dr. Fredericks I smile so much. I never felt beautiful because my teeth were so distracting. My personality has also changed because now that I smile more, people smile back at me; it has been contagious. I laugh and enjoy living. I have changed my name to Sandy Beach and I will use that as my pen name as I am writing a book. When people meet me they laugh and smile when I tell them the name. Thank you Susan for giving me my confidence back."- S.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 15, 2019

"I have been a patient of Dr. Susan's for many many years and she has always taken great care of me. However, today she really impressed me when I came in for a tooth that I broke she examined the tooth, gums, and xray. She realized that I what I needed was a better Xray so she referred me to a root canal specialist in the building. He took the Xray and concluded that Susan was right and that I did indeed need a root canal. Susan Fredericks made sure I was seen the same day and that I got the necessary work done. She knows when she can do something and she also knows and is not afraid to admit when a certain procedure is best done by another dentist (specialist); and for that I have great respect and trust for her. Thank You Dr.Fredericks"- C.L. / Healthgrades / Dec 10, 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.
