"After delaying dental care for over a year, I found Dr. Boulard and have had two visits with his practice. I could not be more pleased! The staff is friendly and competent and showed deep concern for my needs and well being. After experiencing the intolerance and contempt the medical community at large has for those who cannot safely wear a face mask, I am overjoyed at the treatment and respect I received here. After my dental surgery, I got a follow-up call from Dr. Boulard himself, which I thought was so nice and caring. These folks stand head and shoulders above the rest and I am so grateful to have found them!"- L.P. / Office Visit / Jun 10, 2021
"I’ve been a patient with Dr. Boulard for 14 years. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth! Always makes me feel comfortable and never a painful experience. I love the fact that they have high tech scanners so I never gag, no more gunky impressions. and they have up to date technology, with the option of also getting Invisalign. The rest of the staff is lovely and the office manager, Olga, is amazing! They are so efficient and well mannered. I highly recommend!"- D.S. / Google / May 24, 2021

Who qualifies for a smile makeover?
A smile makeover may be helpful if you want to enhance the appearance of your teeth, or if you need several cosmetic or restorative dental services. Dr. Boulard will customize your smile makeover plan to meet your concerns and goals. Other cosmetic treatments that might be in your plan are veneers or bonding and contouring to improve the shape and length of your teeth and to cover minor openings between your teeth. Restorations (crowns and bridges) may be used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Something To Smile About, we offer custom restorations to ensure they blend with your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Before you have cosmetic treatments, Dr. Boulard will need to make certain your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any prohibitive oral health problems such as a severe dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, this will have to be treated first.
Dr. Boulard's Smile Makeover Technique
Every smile makeover is personalized. Dr. Boulard will go over what to expect during your treatment plan, such as the number of visits you may require. Our Something To Smile About team will plan out your appointment(s) to complete the steps of your makeover. Local numbing injections may be needed before a few of your procedures, and sedation options may be included if you need them for dental anxiety. Throughout your smile makeover, Dr. Boulard and his team will be available to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
How do I take care of my teeth after a smile makeover?
Once your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth with a good home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). In addition to daily maintenance, you need to make appointments for dental exams and cleanings at Something To Smile About so Dr. Boulard can check your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the results of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up treatments every few years, such as teeth whitening, may help to refresh your smile. Veneers and restorations may also have to be repaired or replaced, which will all be discussed with Dr. Boulard during your visits.
