7 ways to transform your smile
Most of our patients visit us with a specific treatment in mind, for example, veneers or braces. Others have a clear goal, but they’re not sure how best to achieve it.
During your free consultation, we’ll take the time to examine your smile and learn more about you. We offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, so our experts can provide you with all your treatment options.
You may be surprised by the choice of treatments available to you. We’ll give you unbiased advice on which option we feel is right for you, along with everything you need to make a final decision.
A no-obligation consultation is the best way to learn more about your options. In the meantime, here are some of our most popular smile makeover treatments.
We love braces. They’re without a doubt the best way to straighten misaligned teeth. They’re not an instant solution, but the results are amazing. They’re also kind to your teeth, and a less invasive option compared to veneers.
Braces keep getting better – and more discreet. We can disguise your braces behind your teeth, or swap metal brackets for clear ceramic ones. We can even transform your teeth using clear, removable aligners.
Invisalign is a hugely popular clear aligner system. It moves teeth without metal brackets or wires. You can take your aligners out to eat, and best of all, they’re virtually invisible.
Before we start your treatment, we’ll show you a digital preview of your new smile. It won’t be long until you’re sporting the real thing. Once your teeth are perfectly positioned, we’ll secure your results (bite permitting) using fixed and removable retainers.
Dental veneers are less popular than they once were, with many patients choosing braces instead. However, they’re still a fantastic option for some smiles. Using a thin porcelain façade, they instantly cover stained, chipped and crooked teeth.
We can change the size, shape and colour of your teeth for an incredible transformation. The downside is that sometimes we need to remove some of your enamel to fit veneers. This can’t be reversed, so we always like to explore more conservative options first.
Dental bonding can be a more affordable, less destructive alternative to veneers. We use dental composite (the same material we use for white fillings) to cleverly reshape your teeth.
We can fill chips, contour edges and change the size and shape of individual teeth. The results are very natural, and bonding doesn’t damage your teeth in any way – it’s completely reversible. It’s not a permanent solution, unfortunately, and it’s likely that you’ll need to re-do your bonding every 3–10 years on average.
Teeth contouring is another technique we can use to tweak your teeth. We remove small amounts of enamel to improve the shape of your teeth and balance your smile. The results are permanent, but we only take away tiny amounts of enamel so that it won’t damage your teeth.
Teeth contouring is quick and painless – and it’s one of our most affordable cosmetic treatments. We provide free teeth contouring with braces to patients who would benefit. We can also combine contouring with bonding for the best result.
6. Teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is another treatment that we include with braces. We’ll give you custom-made trays and professional whitening gel to safely brighten your teeth from home.
You’ll have full control over the colour of your teeth, so you can opt for a subtle lift, or build up your results for a more dramatic makeover. You’ll have everything you need to maintain your pearly whites (contact us if you need more whitening gel). Home teeth whitening is very safe, providing your treatment is prescribed by a registered dentist.
7. Scale and polish
Healthy teeth are essential for any smile makeover. So, before you consider cosmetic treatments, your teeth and gums must be in top condition. We recommend regular check-ups with your dentist and hygienist to keep your smile sparkling.
You may be pleasantly surprised by the difference a professional scale and polish can make. Polishing away surface stains and tartar will noticeably improve the appearance of your smile and leave your teeth looking whiter and brighter. Maintain your results at home with a first-class brushing and flossing routine.
