Smile Makeovers

Proven treatment delivered by a dental professional. Cosmetically enhances the appearance of teeth. If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, you may be considering cosmetic dental treatment to improve the look of your teeth. There are a wide range of cosmetic treatments available at our practice, with something to suit every patient’s need and budget. 
For patients who are interested in cosmetic dentistry but are not sure which treatment best suits their needs, we provide smile makeovers. Smile makeovers make use of the latest technology to assess your smile and work out which treatments will work best to give you the smile of your dreams.
You may be looking for a quick teeth brightness boost in preparation for a special occasion such as a wedding or important business meeting, in which case teeth whitening may give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Alternatively, if your teeth are gappy, crooked or cracked, we may recommend porcelain veneers, composite bonding or discreet orthodontic treatment.


Once we’ve established what you want to achieve, we’ll use photographs, x-rays and in some cases models to show you what we can do, and discuss the best treatments for your individual case.

Here is how it works:

  • You’ll visit the practice and discuss with  one of our dentists  what makes you unhappy about your smile, and what you want to achieve.

  • Your dentist will take photographs and x-rays as necessary, and will scan them into the computer.

  • They will discuss the various options available to achieve the results you want, and will show you what to expect from various treatment options.

  • Once you’ve agreed on your treatment, we will then provide you with a detailed treatment plan. In some cases it is possible to start treatment straight away.

Benefits of Smile Makeovers

  • You can see how your new smile will look before you start treatment.

  • You’ll be able to choose the best treatment for your individual wants and needs.

  • The result will be a healthy, beautiful smile that you’ll want to show off.

Digital Smile Design

Advances in digital dentistry now mean that if you choose to improve your smile, you can now be fully confident of the results you’ll achieve even before your treatment has started.


As well as letting you know what to expect, by working with you to create a digital smile, your dentist will ensure you are fully involved in the process of creating your new smile at all times, meaning you will be able to ask any questions and raise any concerns you may have. 

Digital smile design is commonly used for veneers, implants and crowns, as well as other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

  1. Photographs are taken of your existing smile and scanned into the computer. Your dentist will then discuss exactly what you want to achieve.

  2. Your dentist will use the specialised software to design your new smile, creating a realistic likeness of how it will look when treatment is complete.

  3. A 3D simulation of your new smile is then made, so you can see it from all angles before treatment begins.

  4. You will be fitted with a temporary version of your new smile to check that you are happy with the results.

  5. Only when you are completely satisfied will your dentist complete permanent restoration work, leaving you with the smile of your dreams.

Benefits of Digital Smile Design

  • You have full input into your new smile design

  • Your dentist will be aware of any issues that may arise before treatment starts

  • You will be able to check you’re happy with your smile before and during treatment.

Teeth Whitening 

If you are self-conscious about the shade of your teeth or if you have staining on some of your teeth, professional teeth whitening treatment is a proven and recommended option for you to consider.

Here’s how teeth whitening works:

  • You will be assessed for the type of staining your teeth have.

  • A custom tray is made to fit snugly over your teeth.

  • The teeth whitening process is activated by a bleaching agent, which is inserted into the custom tray which transfers the agent onto your teeth.

  • Home teeth whitening kits are also available to lighten the teeth more gradually. In this case, the trays with bleaching agent can be worn overnight. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependent on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • A great solution for certain types of tooth discolouration and staining.

  • Proven treatment delivered by a dental professional.

  • Cosmetically enhances the appearance of teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth stained, chipped, or not aligned on top of each other? Veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don’t require a major procedure. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps if braces are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.


Dental veneers are thin slivers of porcelain or composite resin material, which are placed over the entire front of your affected tooth. Our dentist will prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel, and will take a Digital scan of the area with a intra-oral scanner. We have our In house Milling units to Mill, sinter and finish ceramic veneers to beautiful restorations. Once your veneer is ready, your dentist will use a special bonding material to fit the veneer to your tooth 

Benefits of Repairing Chipped Teeth

  • Repair treatment will help make teeth stronger

  • Reduces the danger of food getting stuck in gaps and cracks, which may cause more serious problems

  • Help to create a smile you are proud to show off

  • A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail, but more durable) that is then stuck on top of your own tooth. 

  • Based on your needs, the shape and size of the veneers can be adjusted to make your teeth overall look longer and or closer together. 

  • You can have just one veneer fitted or a whole set, known as a smile makeover. 

  • Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  • Simple and quick solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth.

  • Long-lasting smile enhancement.

  • Natural-looking restoration.
