Dental Procedures for a Smile Makeover, Crowns, Dental implants

Do you dislike your teeth? Do you have gaps or spaces that make you want to hide your smile? Even the best teeth can lose their vibrancy over time. That’s why Dr. George Saliba and our team at GEMS Dental in Houston offer smile makeovers personalized to your individual needs.

How a smile makeover can help

At GEMS, we recommend smile makeovers to correct a wide variety of dental issues, including:

If you have one or more of these complaints, we can do a smile makeover by combining popular cosmetic dental techniques to help restore or enhance your teeth -- so you’re smiling again in no time.

Popular smile makeover procedures

Dr. Saliba and our team have advanced training in cosmetic dentistry to help bring you the best treatments to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. There are several options available if you’re considering a smile makeover.

Teeth whitening

Even with vigilant brushing, your teeth can become stained or discolored over time. Our professional teeth-whitening systems use stronger bleaching agents than over-the-counter varieties found in drugstores. Plus, we can work with you to help select the perfect level of whitening to give you a spectacular and natural-looking smile.


If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, or gaps between them, you don’t have to turn to traditional braces. The innovative Invisalign system takes a personalized approach to straightening your teeth and works up to 50% faster than other techniques. But the best part about this teeth-straightening system is that it’s practically invisible, and you can remove the aligners while you eat or drink.


Veneers can correct a wide range of dental imperfections because they cover the front of your tooth with a thin, tooth-colored shell. This approach allows us to hide spaces between your teeth or cover problems like staining, minor cracks, or irregular tooth shapes.


For more severe tooth damage like decay or chips, we might recommend a dental crown. A crown works by covering your tooth or dental implant with a cap that looks like a real tooth. This technique not only improves the appearance of your tooth, but it also protects it from additional damage.

Dental implants

If you have missing teeth, an implant can restore your smile while improving your oral health at the same time. This cosmetic procedure involves implanting a screw, similar to a tooth root, into your jawbone. Over time, it fuses into place and becomes a sturdy structure that we cover with a dental crown for a strong, natural-looking tooth replacement.
