Recent research by the British Dental Health Foundation shows that one in four people in the UK are unhappy with their teeth.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise when you consider that the smile is one of the features we most notice and remember about someone when we first meet them.
Whether they are crooked or misaligned, stained and discoloured, missing or overcrowded the list of desired improvements is endless and varied.
Luckily, modern dentistry means that a healthy looking and attractive smile is now a possibility for everyone- regardless of your age or the condition of your existing teeth. We offer our patients a wide range of cosmetic treatments to help in your pursuit of the smile you truly desire.
The concept of smile design and makeover allows us to incorporate all the aspects of dentistry to give our patients the best advice on what is achievable to transforms their smile.
A smile makeover can be subtle or dramatic. Tooth Whitening is one of the most simple and quickest ways to give your smile a new look. The replacement of amalgam fillings with tooth coloured composite can also dramatically freshen the look of your mouth. Whilst crooked and misaligned teeth can be quickly straightened with a variety of braces and aligners- even if teeth require significant movement.
Bespoke treatments can be planned in advance giving greatly reduced treatment times and making them more cost-effective.
Whatever you’d like to change or improve, don’t just assume it isn’t possible. The right treatment really is there for everyone.
Detailed consultation and photography – Your dentist will firstly discuss in detail what you hope to achieve and what changes you would like to see in your smile. Photographs are then taken for our team to carry out a detailed assessment of your smile. We assess varies factors including; facial symmetry, tooth shape, lip level, gum shape and tooth colour. We then formulate a plan with the information collected incorporating what you wish to achieve.
Second consultation and treatment plan – Once we have done all the detailed measurements and assessments we will present to you in a separate appointment what work will be needed to complete your perfect smile. This can be a combination of dental treatments including crowns, veneers, whitening etc. Costs, risk and benefits of treatment proposed are explained in our treatment plan folder for you to take home and think about at your convenience.
3D wax up and impressions- When we have decided on a course of treatment, we then take moulds of your teeth to be sent to our smile design laboratory. They then make a 3D copy of what we want to achieve with your final smile. This is sent back for us to discuss with you and to make any final alterations before work is carried out.
Try in stage- At this stage we can also incorporate a try in stage to show you in the mouth how the final work will look. We can make some fine alterations at this stage to shape and angles of the teeth in the mouth. This allows for an optimal end result
Treatment- After the meticulous planning stage our dental team will work together with the technicians to complete your smile makeover. Once work is finished photos will be taken to compare before and after. A maintenance plan will be provided to ensure long term success of your treatment.
