A great smile can make a big difference in the way you look and feel and how others react to you. Our dentists at Barnt Green offer smile makeover treatments to improve the appearance of your smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures. This includes teeth that are crooked, chipped, stained, very large or too small.
If you are worried people will notice you have metal fillings and crooked teeth, we can help you by replacing unattractive metal fillings with our white fillings and give you orthodontic treatment to correct your smile.
Benefits of smile makeover treatment
During the initial consultation, your dentist will ask you about the changes that you would like to make and suggest the right treatment for you. These may vary from restorative treatments such as composite bonding and white fillings to cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and composite or porcelain.
After this, your dentist will create a customised treatment plan to help you attain a perfect smile. They will explain each stage of the treatment, answer any questions you have and the entire cost involved with it.

FAQs on a smile makeover
Who is the right candidate for a smile makeover?
Any patient can undergo this kind of treatment at our dental centre. If you have serious dental concerns such as gum disease, it might be necessary to opt for periodontal and restorative care before performing the cosmetic treatment. Your dentist will examine you and discuss the right treatment with you.
How much time will my treatment take?
The duration of the treatment depends on the number and kind of procedure, along with the extent of changes you need to make. Some smile makeovers require a single dental visit only while others may require several weeks of treatment. For patients who want to add orthodontic treatment to their smile makeover, the time period will be longer than expected.
Will smile makeover hurt?
Most cosmetic dentistry treatments involve some kind of discomfort. Some patients feel mild pressure when they have dental crowns or porcelain veneers fitted, however, a local anaesthetic is sufficient to make them feel comfortable during the treatment. If you suffer from dental anxiety, then you may want to discuss sedation options with the dentist.
How can I maintain my results?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures require regular oral hygiene care and may require maintenance over time. You should practice good dental hygiene habits by brushing and flossing daily. At the same time, you need to see your dentist keep your teeth strong and healthy for the future. Restrict your consumption of dark-coloured foods such as tea, coffee and wine to prevent stains on the teeth.
