Smile Makeovers

Full Cosmetic Smile Makeovers

Many people feel self-conscious about one or more elements of their smile.

If you suffer from crooked, discoloured, chipped or misshapen teeth then you will understand how feeling bad about your smile can impact your confidence every day.

To target these problems, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments for our patients, often referred to as “smile makeovers.”

Our smile makeover service incorporates a range of different procedures including:

Teeth whitening

The natural discolouration is normal and unavoidable as you age. However, some people’s teeth become discoloured faster or more severely than others.

The discolouration procedure can be sped up by certain lifestyle choices including smoking and drinking coffee and red wine.

However, we offer multiple fast and effective in-practice teeth whitening solutions to reverse these effects, including Enlighten Evolution, Zoom Philips WhiteSpeed and Boutique Whitening.

Dental veneers

Happy dental patient in the dental chair in SurreyVeneers are thin porcelain covers that are fixed over the natural tooth.

It is a fast, effective and slightly more obvious way to improve the colour and shape of your teeth, although natural veneers are of course achievable.

This procedure is usually for people who are looking for fast and effective results, and you can use veneers to target one or multiple teeth.

Composite bonding

Tooth bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-coloured composite resin to one or more of your teeth to repair the damage.

The procedure is a cost-effective solution in comparison to other treatments such as crowns and veneers.

Tooth implants

A dental implant (e.g. an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.

Implants are permanently affixed to the bone in your jaw, providing a secure, natural-feeling and durable solution for tooth loss.

Types of dental implants:

Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment can refer to traditional braces, ceramic tooth coloured braces, lingual braces which are neatly tucked behind the teeth, or Invisalign braces which are the virtually invisible braces.

You may need one treatment or a combination of several. Either way, a smile makeover can provide a substantial aesthetic improvement and boost your confidence immeasurably.

At The Gentle Dental, we are committed to helping you achieve the final smile you dream of and we create a bespoke treatment plan for every patient to ensure we cover all of your target areas.

What does the process involve?

The treatment process will differ greatly depending on your specific case and the methods we choose to proceed with.

However, generally, the Smile Makeover procedure falls into four steps:

  1. Consultation meeting: you meet with one of our exceptional dentists for a consultation whereby we get an overall understanding of your oral health and make a decision regarding what treatment method is best for you.
  2. Diagnostic Appointment: we take a 3-D Scan and X-rays of your teeth (depending on the necessary treatment).
  3. Trial smile: we will transfer the smile we design into your mouth so you can see what the final result will look like. No permanent changes at this stage – just an opportunity to see what your teeth could look like.
  4. Treatment: You can choose the final treatment option, and we can do the rest.
  5. Proceed as usual, with your new and improved smile.

Which treatment is best for which issues?

  1. Cosmetic bonding: We use a tooth coloured filling material to build up your tooth and make it appear as good as new. They are more useful if the tooth is impacted by a small chip. There are many shades of filling materials available and we can choose a shade that perfectly matches your teeth.
  2. Veneers: can be used to give a new structure, shape, colour and size to a badly broken down or damaged tooth to match the surrounding teeth.

Gaps between your teeth 

Dental diastemas, gaps between the teeth, can be closed using composite filling materials or veneers.

So, what next?

As we have shown, we have many treatments to offer when it comes to smile makeovers at The Gentle Dental.

So as you can see, there are several treatment options available for a smile makeover.

The best thing is for you to discuss the following with the dentist:

  • How long you have been thinking about this treatment for?
  • How has your current dental situation affected your day to day life?
  • What is your desired outcome from the makeover?
  • What options are available to you?
  • What are the costs involved and what payment plans are available?
  • How long is the procedure?
