Smile makeover in Welling, Kent

Improve the aesthetics of your smile

A smile makeover involves one or more cosmetic, dental procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile. We believe that a beautiful smile can significantly enhance your overall appearance and boost your confidence. Our dedicated team of dental professionals uses a combination of art and science to tailor treatments that meet your specific desires and needs.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a customised approach to help you achieve the perfect smile. Unlike standard dental treatments that address individual dental health issues, a smile makeover focuses on improving the appearance of your entire smile through a series of cosmetic and dental procedures. This may include straightening, lightening, reshaping, and fully restoring your teeth and gums.

Common procedures involved in a smile makeover can include teeth whitening, composite bonding, teeth straightening, dental implants, dental crowns, gum contouring and veneers.

What to expect

Initial consultation: The first step is a comprehensive assessment where you discuss your expectations and desired outcomes. Our experts use advanced imaging technology to show you potential results.

Treatment planning: We design a step-by-step, personalised treatment plan. This plan considers your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth (colour, width, length, shape, and tooth display), gum tissue, and lips.

Procedure: Depending on the complexity, a smile makeover can be achieved in one or more visits. Our practice is equipped with the latest technology to ensure comfort, efficiency, and the best results.

Follow-up care: Post-treatment care instructions and follow-up appointments are critical to ensure the longevity of the results achieved.

Common treatment combinations for a smile makeover

Veneers + Teeth Whitening

Teeth are first whitened to a uniform shade. Veneers are then applied to cover imperfections, ensuring they match the newly whitened teeth.

Implants + Gum Contouring

Dental implants replace missing teeth and are placed first. Gum contouring follows to adjust the gum line, enhancing the overall appearance.

Invisalign + Composite Bonding

Invisalign aligners straighten teeth first. After alignment, composite bonding corrects any remaining small chips or aesthetic flaws.
