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

"Is it an exaggeration to say a visit to the dentist was a pleasure? Not with this dentist! The staff's disposition is matched only by their competence. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Fredericks and company! Truly!"- B.D. / Healthgrades / Oct 01, 2019
"I had a couple chips in my front teeth, called the office and they were able to get me in the same day. Dr. Fredericks fixed my teeth and they look better than ever."- S.S. / Healthgrades / Oct 01, 2019
"I saw Dr. Fredericks for the first time last week as a second opinion. The dentist I previously saw told me that I absolutely needed to have implants put in and quoted my dental work to cost about $12,000. Dr. Fredericks did her own assessment and concluded that I did not need to have implants; that implants in my case would be elective. I appreciated her honesty as she could have also tried to overdiagnose me and she did not. I have found a new dentist and I feel so confident in her work and diagnoses due to education and honesty."- J.M. / Healthgrades / Sep 29, 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.
