REPAIR, RENEW, TRANSFORM
A Smile Makeover is a combination of both the skill of the clinician and advanced cosmetic dental treatments in order to create your best possible smile. Whatever your reasons for wanting a smile makeover, there are many different ways in which we can help:
- Whiten stained teeth
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Repair, replace and improve the appearance of chipped or broken teeth
- Replace missing teeth
- Improve a "gummy" smile
The result of a Smile Makeover should be a smile to be proud of; straighter, whiter and better aligned.
With a Smile Makeover, we can restore the teeth to a more natural, pleasing appearance with a variety of different techniques and procedures to improve the colour, shape and size of the teeth. These include replacement fillings and bonding, crowns and bridges.
Bonding is a skilled way of lightening and changing the shape of teeth, or closing small spaces or gaps, in just one visit to a dental surgery.
A crown, also commonly known as a cap, sits over your existing tooth, covering the entire outer surface to strengthen your damaged tooth, allowing it to work properly, and also makes it look consistent with your other teeth. Importantly, we have invested in the leading digital technologies that enable us to map and then produce crowns in-house, typically so you can have the whole procedure completed in just one visit. For spaces where teeth are missing, a bridge or dental implant can be used to replace the teeth. This means that you will not have to wear a denture or false tooth to fill in a gap.

Even if you haven't visited the dentist in a while, chances are your teeth will remain in a healthy condition. However, if you do require dental treatment, then our dentists can help to restore your oral structure - whether that's fixing broken teeth with veneers or composite bonding, or replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
If you have worn or damaged teeth, it is important that you don’t lose any more of your tooth surface. Addition Dentistry is done by ADDING back to your own teeth without drilling to give you back a beautiful smile, better chewing ability and efficiency, and more comfort generally.
Restorative dental therapy can also reduce headaches and tired jaws; decrease clicky jaw joints; and make your teeth feel less sharp or sore on the tongue or cheeks, yet better at chewing. It can also make it easier for you to keep your mouth healthy and clean.
Usually, Oral Rehabilitation means restoration of all of the teeth. However, it could also be defined as restoring only the defective teeth. Using our expertise and knowledge in all aspects of restorative dentistry, we're committed to helping our patients achieve optimum dental health, function and aesthetics. Whether your dental problem is large or small, you have one concern or several, we can use a variety of dental treatments to help get your dental health back on track.
We always say that the first step back to oral health is an informal chat with one of our caring team members. We'll provide you with a tailored treatment plan, discuss all of the options available to you, and our staff will support you throughout your journey to your best smile ever.

Typical tooth wear problems and associated symptoms
Everybody’s teeth gradually wear over time. The average front tooth is 11mm long. If we lived to 100 years old and our teeth are wearing normally we would lose about a millimetre. So, if you are 30 and your teeth seem short- you have abnormal tooth wear! And it will not get better.
There are three main causes of tooth wear:
a) external -this can be from fruit, fizzy drinks, alcohol, even mouthwashes
b) internal – from stomach acid reflux (GIRD) which a lot of people have and don’t even know it
2. Abrasion – from incorrect tooth brushing and abrasive toothpastes
3. Attrition – when the teeth rub or grind together often subconsciously, when stressed or asleep (bruxism)
Any combination of these can give rise to one or more problems such as:
- Frequent repeated chipping of teeth
- Fillings keep falling out- repeated lost restorations
- One tooth after another breaks or fractures
- Discolouration of teeth
- Bad taste on waking
- Dry mouth
- Hoarse voice in mornings
- Can See visible vertical hairlines cracks in front teeth
- Mobile teeth
- Tender teeth
- Jaw joint pain
- Neck pain
- Tired jaws
- Short teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Gummy smile
If you have any of the above signs or symptoms – you could have tooth wear problems! Please get in touch to arrange a consultation where we can carry out a comprehensive examination.
