What is a smile makeover?

Excellent question! Our trained dentists will first offer you a consultation where they will assess your dental structure and your dental health. From there, they will write up a plan to give you the best smile possible. This could mean that you’ll need braces to bring misaligned teeth into their correct places, or you could need teeth whitening to brighten your smile. Here is more information about a few of our cosmetic options.

Teeth whitening

If one tooth in your mouth or many teeth have begun to discolour over the years, then it’s time to get them sparkling again. We offer kits that you can take home, or you can have your teeth whitened by one of our dentists.

White fillings

We aim to use white composite fillings in your mouth that closely resemble the colour of your teeth. They’re less noticeable and bond well with your problem tooth. It’s a great alternative to the metal amalgam fillings which have been used by dentists for many years.

Teeth straightening

As an adult, you too can get braces to straighten and enhance your natural smile. There’s no need to worry about the traditional metal appearance of braces with our Six Month Smiles option. The braces you’ll wear during the treatment period will be clear, and closely match the colour and shade of your teeth. You can feel confident, knowing your teeth are being taken care of and you’re gradually getting closer to your new smile. 

Are smile makeovers in Stevenage expensive?

We care about all of our patients and we want them to get the best results possible. We also try to make sure that our patients are clear about the cost of procedures and treatments. The price of a smile makeover in Stevenage may vary because each patient’s needs differ and combination treatments vary in price; as an example, teeth straightening followed by teeth whitening may vary in cost in comparison to having veneers.

On our website, we have a section labelled “Fees & Offers” – you can find more information about the services we offer and how much we charge for them.

Julia or Victoria?

Your smile is your most vital non-verbal tool of communication. Think about celebs who have great smiles. Julia Roberts for example. When she smiles, her whole face transforms and that smile has been the basis of her staying at the top of her game as a movie star for decades. How do you feel when you see Julia smile? Do you feel that you can’t help but like her and wish her every success.

Now take Victoria Beckham. No one has ever seen this famous and talented dress designer smile. She makes gorgeous clothes, she is a great wife and mother, but you do warm to her when you see her?

Two incredibly successful women. And yet such a difference just because of a smile, or lack of it. Which would you rather emulate? If you don’t smile because you feel ashamed of your teeth then maybe you need to have a smile makeover for your big change of 2019.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is more than just a couple of cosmetic dental treatments. It stars with a thorough examination of your mouth from an aesthetic point of view. The cosmetic dentist here at Smilecraft in Stevenage will be looking to find out if your teeth are well lined up, if their size is good in relation to each other and in relation to the size of your jaws and the shape of your face. They will also be looking at the colour and for damage, and whether the teeth are well positioned. Gums can also be changed, so the dentist will want to make sure that you have the right amount of gum tissue. Does it come too far down your teeth? Or has it receded and is now showing too much tooth, maybe even some root?

The next step is to draw up a written treatment plan, detailing what treatments are suggested and in what order they need to take place. For example, most people would get their teeth straightened before having them whitened.

Time for a smile makeover

When you know your car isn’t working properly, but you don’t know how to make it a thing of beauty and a joy to drive again, you take it to a car expert. The same goes for teeth and mouths. Yes, you can live for years with teeth that don’t look great. They may even have a few issues that you can live with (other than decay or gum disease, which cause discomfort). Perhaps you know what we are talking about. You keep your smile under wraps these days. You no longer roar with laughter. If you have removable false teeth or a fixed bridge, you can’t even eat your favourite crunchy, chewy foods.

Smile Makeovers in StevenageAll in all, when your smile is no longer a lovely thing, for whatever reason, each day, in subtle but undeniable ways, chips away at your self-esteem.

If you can do it for your beloved old car, shouldn’t you take your teeth to a professional and see if they can be restored to their full gleaming former glory? If you never had a Rolls Royce of a smile, there are ways to turn it into one.

The world of smile makeovers

At Smilecraft, we can give you one of our famous smile makeovers in Stevenage. This is an umbrella term for a combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments. We take a good look at your mouth and work out a plan to bring your smile to peak condition.

This may include getting some teeth straightened. This will not only make them look better, they will be easier to clean and your chewing pressure will be more evenly distributed, so your teeth will last longer.

If your teeth are chipped and worn, they can be repaired by covering them with veneers or composite bonding. Your back molars may need something stronger like crowns.

Stained teeth, as long as there are no prosthetics such as veneers, can often be whitened.

How these treatments are combined and in what order they are performed is vital to the success of your treatment, and you will receive a treatment plan with the order and cost of treatments needed to make over your smile.

Show off your smile

Are you happy with your smile? Do you hold back from showing off its full radiance because of crooked or missing teeth? Do you feel anxious in social situations because of crowded, chipped or misaligned teeth? Do you wish that you didn’t have to show off a mouth full of metal fillings every time you laughed?

smile-makeover-in-stevenageIf you aren’t happy with your smile but aren’t sure what kind of treatment could help the most; or perhaps you have a variety of issues that need attention, smile makeovers in Stevenage could be just what you are looking for.

What will work for me?

At Smilecraft, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments in Stevenage. Smile makeovers include one or more of these. When you come in for a consultation with our cosmetic dentist, we will take time to listen to what makes you unhappy about your smile and offer you one or more of our smile enhancing procedures. This includes: teeth whitening, Six Month Smiles braces, white filings, crowns, porcelain veneers and inlays and onlays.

Quicker ways to a happier smile

Perhaps your teeth are nicely aligned but you need a quick brightening boost for a special occasion. We offer the in-house Zoom teeth whitening system, which is a quick and easy way to a brighter smile. Taking just two hours, we apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth, which is activated with a UV light. You’ll notice the difference straight away. Or if you prefer a gentler method, we can offer you an at-home method using trays that fit neatly to your teeth for you to apply a lower dose gel yourself over two weeks.

If your teeth are crooked, crowded or misaligned, you may benefit from orthodontic treatment. We offer a fast, effective way for adults to straighten teeth, which is almost invisible. Six Month Smiles braces use tooth-coloured wires and brackets and so are highly discreet. Treatment time varies from four to nine months, which is vastly quicker than traditional metal braces.
