What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a popular and highly effective method of correcting a wide range of smile defects, including:
 

  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Gummy smile


After your smile transformation you will have a beautiful white and even smile to proudly show off to the world.

What does the treatment involve?

To achieve your desired smile, cosmetic dentists use a variety of necessary techniques and treatments to transform the colour, shape and size of the teeth. Cosmetic dentists may use some of the following treatments to improve you smile:
 

  • Teeth whitening can brighten your smile and achieve your desired tooth colour. Treatment can be completed in the dentist’s chair or by yourself at home with whitening gel and custom-made mouth trays.
  • Dental implants replace a missing tooth root to provide a surface for a crown to be securely attached. Implants help replace missing teeth and look as natural as possible.
  • Porcelain veneers mimic natural tooth enamel and are custom-made to fit over the tooth; they disguise a range of dental faults, including chips, gaps and cracks.
  • Fillings your cosmetic dentist can fill cavities with tooth-coloured resin rather than using unsightly metal fillings.
  • Bonding is a simple treatment used to lighten smiles, close gaps and change the shape of teeth with the use of a tooth-coloured resin. Bonding requires just one visit to your dentist.
  • Porcelain crowns (caps) fix tooth tooth damage by fitting over the tooth to replace lost structure. They strengthen the tooth and seamlessly fit in with the rest of your smile.
  • Cosmetic gum surgery (tissue resculpting) transforms gummy smiles by changing the shape of the gums to achieve a full and even smile.
  • Bridges efficiently replace missing teeth, meaning you won’t have to have to wear a denture or a false tooth as a replacement.
     

Am I a suitable candidate?

Anyone who wants to improve their smile and requires one or more cosmetic procedures is the perfect candidate for a smile makeover. Talk with your dentist to find out what particular treatments will help you achieve your desired outcome.

The initial consultation

At your initial consultation you will have a detailed chat with your cosmetic dentist. You’ll have the chance to explain what you want to change about your smile and how you want it to look after treatment. It may even be helpful to bring along any photos showing how you want your teeth to look. Your dentist will then examine your teeth and determine the best course of treatment for you. The time-scale will also be worked out; a large number of treatments may require the treatment time to span over the course of many months.

What happens after treatment?

After your treatment is finished you should be able to carry on with your usual daily activities. It’s recommended that you avoid hard, chewy foods and any dark drinks that can easily stain teeth (coffee, tea and red wine). With correct dental care and regular check-ups with your dentist, smile makeovers can last from 10-15 years. Some treatments, particularly teeth whitening, may need occasional touch-ups either at your dentist’s office or at home.

How much does a smile makeover cost?

Costs of treatment can vary from patient to patient depending on their dental health and desired results. Replacement fillings and bonding can cost around £100 per tooth. Crowns and bridges are priced from £150-£500 per tooth depending on the type of material used. Teeth whitening generally can cost around £40 for a single tooth and over £600 for the entire mouth. Book a consultation with your dentist to determine the cost of your individual treatment.

Choosing a dentist

To ensure the success of your smile makeover, it’s important to choose a reputable and skilled cosmetic dentist who has vast experience in the treatment area you’re interested in. Be sure to look for proof of relevant qualifications held by your cosmetic dentist. You can also ask to see before and after pictures of previous smile transformations, as well as ask for recommendations from past patients.
