What Can Be Done to Fix My Crooked Smile?

Smile Makeover La JollaIf you’re a La Jolla resident with a crooked smile that you’d like to correct, you’ve come to the right place! Sarah Winter Dental specializes in smile makeovers, providing her San Diego patients with a smile they can be proud to flash all over the county. Since all crooked smiles are different, every treatment plan will vary. Additionally, Dr. Winter looks beyond your crooked teeth to your entire facial appearance to find treatments that will enhance your smile for years to come.

Clear Braces

If you have crooked teeth, it’s possible that part of your smile makeover treatment plan will include clear braces. This is a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to the traditional metal option. Clear braces can straighten your teeth in a matter of months while being less noticeable as you wear them and flash your “in-progress” smile.

In addition to considering clear braces to treat your crooked teeth as part of your La Jolla smile makeover, there are other non-cosmetic reasons to choose this option. The malposition of teeth can cause a variety of problems, including:

  • Wearing down your teeth
  • Causing your teeth to fracture
  • Causing chronic discomfort or tooth sensitivity
  • Creating frequent headaches
  • Producing soreness around your jaw

Porcelain Veneers

If you have teeth that are chipped or broken, these defects can add to the crookedness of your smile. La Jolla patients can have these conditions corrected by adding porcelain veneers to their smile makeover plan. Often described as a comfortable solution*, Sarah Winter Dental uses handcrafted veneers designed by ceramists and other skilled craftsmen, versus computer-generated versions so that your results are aesthetically pleasing and uniquely made to fit your smile and facial features.


In addition to dental veneers, crowns are a central part of Dr. Winter’s practice. If you’re concerned about both the aesthetics and functionality of your teeth, a crown can be an excellent solution that addresses both of these problems.

Teeth Whitening

No smile makeover is complete if La Jolla patients still have stained or yellow teeth. As part of her smile makeover treatment plans, Dr. Winter often includes teeth whitening services, which can be performed either in our office or at home using take-home kits. With a whiter, brighter smile, you’ll be proud to show off your pearly whites.


Providing that Dr. Winter goes beyond just the structure of your teeth, she sometimes includes Botox in her La Jolla patients’ smile makeover treatment plans. This strategy directs attention to your smile versus any wrinkles or frown lines you may have. Including Botox in your smile makeover can help your smile stand out while reducing signs of aging.
