If your application is dismissed, the intellectual property office will list the reasons for dismissal in the Office Action it issues. Within the letter, the IPO might provide suggestions on what you can do to fix the application.

Other than the changes permitted by the IPO, you won't be able to adjust your application, and in some cases, you'll have to file a new one.
