How it works
How Does the Procedure Work?
A Smile Makeover treatment aims to give our patients the smiles they want and rightfully deserve. At Hortman Clinics, we understand that a Smile Makeover is not just a treatment, but we consider the scientific, artistic and emotional aspects of custom crafting smiles for each individual.
A typical Smile Makeover procedure begins with a digital smile design. By improving the aesthetics of teeth by rectifying their alignment, positions, shape and colour, our cosmetic dentists also work to enhance teeth function.
In the initial appointments, your dentist will record your teeth measurements, bite and take pictures of your face and smile for an in-depth smile analysis.
Next, the records taken are used for smile designing with your involvement, considering your requirements. Once the Smile Makeover treatment plan is created, the process begins after you have approved it.
Your Smile Makeover treatment may involve several procedures, such as:
White teeth help you flaunt a dazzling, electrifying smile. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that helps remove tooth stains and lighten the colour and shade of your teeth. It is almost always used as part of a Smile Makeoverr procedure. When performed by an expert cosmetic dentist, this procedure is highly safe.
At Hortman Clinics, we provide the best quality dental veneers in Dubai and promise to give you a smile that you will always be proud to flaunt. Veneers are thin shells of ceramic or porcelain and are custom-fabricated for each patient. They are versatile and are effective in rectifying various tooth problems.
If you have severely damaged teeth dulling your smile, your cosmetic dentist will recommend crowns or caps that cover the entire tooth. These crowns are usually made from tooth-coloured solid ceramic or porcelain that gives your teeth a natural appearance.
Your dentist will use natural, tooth-coloured bonded filling materials to rectify chipped or stained teeth in this procedure.
If you have mild teeth alignment issues affecting your smile, your dentist may recommend you undergo a clear aligner treatment. Clear aligners are transparent plastic trays to move your teeth into proper alignment, and an orthodontist usually performs this step of a Smile Makeover.
Missing teeth cause a black triangle that directly impacts the aesthetics of your smile. Our cosmetic dentists routinely use dental implants to replace missing teeth that may be affecting your smile, bite, and confidence.
A dental implant essentially comprises an implant screw (the part placed inside the bone and functions as the tooth root), a crown (the white portion visible in the mouth), and an abutment connecting the other two parts.
In some people, the gum line requires correction to establish harmony between the teeth and gums. This balance between the pink gums and white teeth is vital for an aesthetic Smile Makeover.
Who Needs a Smile Makeover?

People with healthy teeth and gums who want to enhance their smiles should seek a consultation with a cosmetic dentist.

Book an Appointment
Meet our team
Consult Our Doctor
After recording your medical history, our expert cosmetic dentists perform a thorough clinical evaluation to check your teeth and gums for infection, irregularity of bite, habits, and jaw positioning.
A detailed analysis of your smile is performed to determine the problem areas. You may require a few x-rays during the evaluation procedure.
If you are a candidate for a Smile Makeover, your cosmetic dentists will explain the treatment– procedures involved, timeline, duration of each sitting, precautions and expected results. Clarify any queries you may have concerning this treatment with your dentist.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your dentist may ask you to come for a follow-up a couple of days, a week and one month after the procedure to monitor the treatment results and resolve any issues you are facing. You must visit your dentist once every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning and polishing. This helps prolong the life of your Smile Makeover.
Since most Smile Makeover procedures are minimally-invasive, there is little or no downtime after a Smile Makeover treatment. If you have undergone a gum correction treatment, you may take a week to recover. Your cosmetic dentist will inform you about the recovery time and instructions to follow after each step of your Smile Makeover.
Smile makeover procedures are not painful as most are non or minimally invasive. Your cosmetic dentist will administer local anaesthesia or a topical numbing substance if you experience mild discomfort. At Hortman Clinics, our goal is to provide painless, comfortable Smile Makeover to all our patients.
A Smile Makeover aims to give our patients a smile that looks natural on them. To ensure this, each smile is custom-crafted for an individual.
What Our Patients Say About Us
for 10 years, every single day, i asked God to send me an angle to save my soul and he sent Dr. John Shamoun. Such a beautiful angle.
I know several girls that have had breast augmentations from Doc shamoun and he’s by far the best plastic surgeon around would highly recommend him! He’s very particular and confident with his work.
Dr. Shamoun is a great surgeon, very busy but takes him to care about people. Another surgeon referred me to him for a breast revision and Shamoun did a great job back in 2019! Thanks for having an impact in my life!
Did a beautiful breast augmentation for me in 2001 and it still looks great! They look so natural. They look so great that people wonder if they are implants but aren’t sure. Money well spent!

Dr. Karem won my confidence from the very beginning describing the treatment in detail. Profesional approach to the patient and medical knowledge represent the highest level. My expectations were absolutely met. Thank you very much for this wonderful time spent in the clinic.
