Smile Design

Your smile is as unique as you are and so we spend time helping you to understand what smile will best suit you.

Some people have a clear idea of the smile they want to achieve and often bring in pictures that they’ve found on the internet. Other people want to regain the smile they had in their youth, old pictures can be a great help here but also family pictures of brothers, sisters, sons or daughters.

To create the design we use a variety of tools – we have cameras, digital scanners and software to help us design and visualise the end result. We can then 3-D print models of the new smile and use these to help you experience the end result with a smile preview.

A smile preview is only temporary, it fits over the top of your teeth and allows you to preview the planned design. You are invited to critique and make any changes that you feel appropriate. We can take photos so that you can consult with family and friends – all this is done without doing any damage to the teeth!

When you are happy with the smile preview this becomes our blueprint and we recreate this design into your new, finished smile.
