Have you always wanted that “movie star smile”? Not all of us are born with beautifully straight, white teeth but this doesn’t mean you have to be unhappy with your smile. Modern cosmetic dentistry has moved on very rapidly over the past 2 decades and now everyone can have that perfect smile!
There are many options available to improve your smile, ranging from tooth whitening through to orthodontics and implants to replace missing teeth. Some options are more destructive than others. At Manor House Dental Practice we try and choose the least destructive way to achieve a beautiful smile.
A smile makeover can involve a combination of dental and facial aesthetic procedures, it is designed to suit the individual. It is your choice, it may be that you just want your old amalgam fillings replaced with tooth coloured alternatives, or you want crooked teeth straightening. Every smile make over is different and can vary from a single visit of re-contouring teeth to a combination of treatments to create that perfect white smile.
At Manor House Dental Practice teeth can be straightened with the near invisible Invisalign braces. Orthodontics tends to be the least destructive way to improve the position of your teeth. It is often a lengthy process and can take up to 18 months depending upon severity of mal-alignment. A quicker option is to veneer or crown teeth.
If teeth are chipped or broken, they can be repaired, or even smoothed (aesthetic re-contouring). Treatment is, of course dependent upon the extent of damage but possible solutions include cosmetic bonding, porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers.
Missing teeth are unsightly and can impede on your dental health and your general health. Studies have demonstrated that missing teeth can lead to reduced chewing power which in turn leads to digestive problems and increased medication. A smile makeover may involve replacing existing work or missing teeth with dental implants, dental bridges or dentures.
Gaps or spaces between teeth can be closed by various methods, for example bonding tooth coloured filling materials, by veneering or crowning the teeth or by moving teeth with orthodontics (braces).
A gummy smile can easily be improved by surgery, laser gum contouring, or a simply a small drop of BOTOX®, Badly stained teeth, can be improved often quite simply as we use the latest prophy jet cleaning. If this is not enough then combined with professional tooth whitening the colour of your teeth will be instantly transformed.
A dream smile can be achieved by altering the picture frame around it, your lips. Lips may be down turned or lost their fullness. Deep smile or frown lines, may affect your confidence. Any of these can be treated relatively simply with Manor House Dental Practice facial aesthetic treatments using the latest technologies in BOTOX®.

Not only will Manor House Dental Practice guide you on how to achieve your dream smile, we will also be here for your routine examinations and help you to maintain it.
