U.S. net Lifetime is documenting the physical and emotional tolls around transformative dental procedures in the forthcoming docuseries Smile (pictured).

The 6 x 60-minute series – set to debut on May 28 at 10 p.m. EST/PST – follows a team of New York- and LA-based dentists as they work with 12 patients from across the U.S. to restore their smiles.

The premiere episode of Smile follows a college senior born with a disabling genetic disorder that prevented several of her teeth from fully growing in, as well as another patient whose teeth were shattered in a high school baseball accident. The episode finds dentists performing corrective surgery with the goal of helping their patients regain self-confidence.

Smile is produced by Morgan J. Freeman‘s 11th Street Productions. Executive producers on the show include Freeman, Bryn Freedman and Dia Sokol Savage, as well as Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway.
