There’s a reason so many celebrities and influencers get smile makeovers once they’re in the limelight, and it’s not just to look good for the cameras. As Dr. Khalil Saghezchi notes, a beautiful, healthy smile is the quickest way to anti-age your look. “All of the facial muscles get support from your teeth,” says Dr. Saghezchi. “As we age, we lose dimension of our teeth, which in turn changes the structure of the face, potentially making us appear older than we actually are.” He believes that good oral health that encompasses both form and function can make the biggest difference in the face. “We can really change a patient’s entire appearance and give more structure to their facial muscles just by creating a new smile,” adds the dentist. Today, no one has to keep the smile they were born with. With the latest techniques and advanced materials, Dr. Saghezchi utilizes his skill and expertise to give patients the movie star smiles they’ve always wanted.

A Minute With
What are you best known for?Smile Makeovers—my patients love how it transforms their look and how much younger they appear. I love having the ability to change a patient’s entire face by giving them a new smile
What are your most requested procedures?Porcelain veneers and smile makeovers
How does your staff enhance your practice?My daughter, who runs both the medical and dental side of the practice, has brought on a team that has enhanced our practice immensely. They have been with us for years—and each of them brings a different trait to the table and really makes our practice a calming place to be. Every time a patient leaves my office, they mention to me that my knowledge or care makes them comfortable in the dental chair, while my staff makes them feel so welcome in the waiting area. That makes me so happy as an employer!
Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?Because less really is more in aesthetics. You can always add more to something, but it is much more difficult to take away from it. For natural-looking beauty, less truly is more!
How important is a great smile?A great smile can boost your selfconfidence. If you are not happy with your smile, you’ll most likely cover your mouth and try to hide your smile from the world. When you love how your teeth look, you smile more, you laugh more and you are more ready to show your smile to the entire world. This results in a better quality of life!
What is your motto?To help other people and give back to my community. I have always lived by this motto and having the ability to help someone else is a gift. When I can give someone the opportunity to achieve their goals, my hope when they’re successful is that they can do the same for someone else
