Smile Improvement & Rejuvenation

Woman teeth


Smile improvement can be the key to changing your self image and your life. Having the best smile possible, a beautiful smile, makes people happier and more self-confident. How would your life change if you had a younger smile, a really nice smile or even a dazzling smile brought on by a smile rejuvenation? Would your relationships change? Would you be more successful at work because of your improved outlook on life? Is your smile stopping you from being all you can be? We can help.

Straight and White Teeth with Porcelain Veneers

We have the ability to straighten out and brighten your smile to your specifications. With the use of porcelain veneers and crowns, turn your crooked smile or small teeth into a beautiful, beaming smile. Have you suffered from Tetracycline stained teeth your whole life? Don’t worry, with the application of porcelain veneers you will have a beautiful, stain-free smile.

Your Smile Makeover

Man-SmilingSmile rejuvenation is our specialty here at 5 Star Dental Group in San Antonio. Dr. Carlson and Dr. Barnes are happy to help you achieve your dream smile with our smile makeover procedures. Starting with a free consultation, the smile makeover process will turn from a dream to a reality. We can apply porcelain veneers or cosmetic crowns to brighten and straighten your smile. We also provide Invisalign, the modern way to straighten teeth without braces. We do not use metal fillings or crowns because we prefer to use porcelain and tooth-materials. Dr. Carlson and Dr. Barnes tailor each procedure to the patient’s liking, creating unique and beautiful smiles.
