At Gwynne Dental, a smile makeover uses a combination of techniques to achieve the perfect smile. This can range from the simplest technique on a single tooth to a full recreation of all your teeth. We have highly experienced cosmetic dentists and a top class dental laboratory to support us in producing quality outcomes for our patients.
The creation of your bespoke smile starts at your initial consultation. All options and associated costs will be discussed with you and can then be arranged to suit your requirements.
There are various reasons why patients opt for a full smile makeover, although most candidates suffer from the following:
These issues may result in low self-esteem due to a reluctance to smile, which is why many people undergo a full smile makeover. Our aim is for patients to be proud of their smile and hopefully re-gain lost confidence in social situations.
Very few of us are lucky to have a perfect smile as crooked teeth can be caused by many things. Teeth straightening, or orthodontics, is now commonly done in all ages. If you are one of many who have crooked teeth that are causing you distress there are several options open to you to help correct the problem and give you back your bright confident smile.
A very common and easy option is Aligner treatment. This will move the teeth by gently pushing the teeth into the correct position. Aligners are popular as they are almost invisible when worn in the mouth and they work very quickly. A significant advantage of aligner treatment is that it requires little or no damage or cutting down of the teeth, however it will require a ‘retainer’ afterwards.
These are porcelain ‘shells’ which are cemented to shaped teeth to give a very natural, attractive appearance. They are particularly suitable if you have badly damaged teeth as the imperfections are covered. They give the ‘perfect’ appearance. Crowns cover the whole tooth whilst veneers just the front surfaces.
The advantage of composite bonding is that it can be totally non-damaging to the teeth, and may be so painless it may not even require anaesthetic. Ideally the join between tooth and composite will be seamless, however sometimes this can become stained over time. The composite doesn’t always perfectly match the tooth so for total aesthetic perfection veneers or crowns could be more suitable.
Teeth often become darker as we get older due to natural changes within the teeth, wear and tear, the accumulation of stains and other factors.
Tooth whitening is very effective and can make a dramatic improvement to your smile. There is no damage to your teeth, can easily be repeated and maintained. It involves the use of a custom ‘tray’ containing gel, which releases hydrogen peroxide and bleaches out the staining without harming the tooth structure. It will not work on crowns or fillings except on surface staining.
At Gwynne Dental we recommend and provide home whitening because it is the most effective way to whiten your teeth with long lasting results.
