Smile makeover

A smile makeover is a process which enhances the aesthetic qualities of your smile. It involves one or more procedures which improve the function, colour and shape of your teeth: all of which contribute to a pleasing smile.

Some patients undergo a single procedure, for example, white fillings whereas others choose a package which includes teeth whitening, dental implants, gum contouring and in some cases, dermal fillers and Botox. Corrective braces are another option.

Reasons for a smile makeover

Healthy teeth and gums mean an attractive smile and a confidence in one's appearance. But cracked, worn, damaged or missing teeth detract from that. Teeth which are stained due to smoking or the consumption of tea and coffee are another negative factor.

Around 75% of the UK population are self-conscious about their teeth and are reluctant to smile in public.

Smile makeover procedure

A smile makeover includes some or all of the following procedures:

  • Dental implants
  • Braces
  • Veneers
  • Lumineers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Gum reshaping
  • White fillings

The number of procedures you undergo will depend upon how much treatment is required; the skill and experience of the cosmetic dentist and your budget.

The dentist will discuss the procedure/s in detail, explaining the risks and benefits and the duration. If you choose more than one procedure then expect to undergo treatment over several visits which will increase the cost.
