If You Are Unhappy With Your Teeth We Can Help. You Never Need To Hide Your Smile Anymore!
We understand that many people can be unhappy with their smile for a variety of reasons. Their teeth may be worn down, twisted, missing, or discoloured. Sometimes it’s a combination of issues, which is where a smile makeover fits in.
Enhancing your smile can dramatically rejuvenate your entire appearance. Full smile makeover treatments can range from white fillings, crowns and veneers to more cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and teeth straightening.
A smile makeover has the capacity to:
- Improve self-esteem
- Boost confidence
- Improve jaw function
- Fix multiple tooth problems at once
- Create long-lasting, potentially permanent results.
Smile Makeover Case Studies
This case was completed using the most conservative approach as possible. We had spent time over the last year tooth whitening and discussing alternative options such as comprehensive orthodontics and composite bonding, but the patient did not feel she would achieve the smile aesthetics she wanted with these more minimally invasive techniques.
When you exhaust all other more minimally-invasive techniques first and the end-result is still not to their expectations, then I feel we can safely and predictably complete a makeover using ceramics as long as we still follow minimally-invasive preparation protocols and are are careful and exact with our planning and execution.
Why Choose Start Smiling For Your Makeover Treatment?
That is a very good question. We could give you a few reasons why we think we are the right fit for you, but we prefer to let our patients do the talking. Here are some of the reviews that have been left online by our smile makeover patients…
Dr Tony did a fantastic job of composite bonding and gum contouring for me. All staff were helpful and polite during every visit I made. I would definitely recommend this dentist. I contacted Start Smiling in June, having lost a veneer on the first day of Lockdown in March, I was more than keen to get some help in rectifying this and replacing the other veneers I had.Following an informative Skype consultation with Tony I decided to book my face-to-face consultation with him.From the moment I first walked into this professional establishment I felt welcome and at ease, each member of staff I came into contact with had a friendly, welcoming face.Following this consultation I decided to proceed with what was going to be quite a journey to regain my confidence in my smile. Due to being given medication when a baby the enamel on my front teeth, both top and bottom, never developed correctly. I had previously had the top teeth corrected with veneers, which were more than ready for replacement and I had always wanted something done about my lower teeth. Tony offered his advice and I went ahead.Treatment started in July, I had 7 visits in total my final visit being the end of October. Each visit I was made to feel as comfortable as possible and even after a 4hour long appointment I left still knowing I had made the right choice and more than happy with how the treatment was going. I never left the practice looking anything but presentable, the temporary fitment provided when my old veneers were removed was nothing short of amazing.Procedures at each appointment were performed with care and everything was fully explained.Tony was always on hand with any concerns or queries I had, a mere e-mail away, he always responded the same day and put my mind at total ease.Each time I visited the staff welcomed me by my name and with a happy, friendly demeanour - making me feel like their only patient.I will be staying with Tony and the Start Smiling gang for future dental check-ups and treatment, the hour-long drive there and back for me is more than worth it.I honestly cannot recommend Tony and the team highly enough.... I can indeed “Start Smiling”. Dr Tom Sealey replaced my old upper veneers and did a first-class job. Dr Tom addressed my concerns honestly and in detail when responding to my emails and during my consultations. Dr Tom works meticulously every step of the way, and I am delighted with the final result. Kudos to Simon (the technician) for my natural-looking veneers. Dr Tom and Simon collaborated closely to create my perfect smile. I am also grateful to the dental nurses, practice manager and friendly receptionists. Thanks to the dental hygienists, I have learnt how to take better care of my oral health. Start Smiling provide an all-round top quality service and experience. I have been going to start smiling for more than 10 and had mainly required the hygienist and checkups.Unfortunately I had a serious accident and damaged my teeth and gums to such an extent that I required a lot of dental work that was ongoing for over a year. This work was carried out by Tony and he had to reconstruct my gums which included a graft. I also required a brace and veneers. During this time I had regular visits with Alison who has guided me through my oral hygiene. I am a very nervous patient but every visit to Start Smiling was totally pain free and all the staff were kind and caring. I cannot thank everyone enough at Start Smiling for giving me back my smile and confidence. I have recently moved into the area and was recommended to get in contact with Start Smiling. I only joined them a month ago but have nothing but positive things to say. Tony and his colleagues are a very friendly team and you feel at ease when in the practice. They are very thorough and provide and fantastic service throughout. I have recently had some composite bonging work and whitening treatment with my teeth and have been exceptionally happy with the results. In turn, I have recommended my wife and some friends to join up!Terry Farr, Mountnessing I cannot begin to explain how pleased I am with the outcome of my personalised treatment plan carried out by the team at Start Smiling. I am more confident, smile more, am willing to have more photos taken and am proud to share the journey with whoever will listen! The comments from family and friends make every hurdle worth it and when I see my teeth in the mirror I still have to remind myself…they are mine!Previous experiences had left me extremely nervous about having dentistry work done; the thought of surgery, needles, an implant, veneers and braces (again) filled me with horror. However, I can honestly say, with the support of all of the team, I really should not have worried anywhere near as much as I initially did.Dr Tony and Kira were amazing and were there for me with whatever I needed to know, including follow up calls after appointments. I had received some great work done by Tony in another surgery several years ago and I trusted him, so I found his new practice online and travelled 20 miles each way because I knew that the level of service would be nothing but excellent!Every step of the journey was explained, before during and after. I would say the conversations were transparent and this reduced my anxiety about the treatment I was having. The office staff were also brilliant, a massive thanks to Pam and all the others in offering support, at times even sitting with me before or in between treatments to reassure me. My major phobia is of needles; however, this was not a problem as Tony offered me a numbing agent, which meant I experienced no pain during injections and therefore no longer had to worry about this.The whole practice has such a family feel and many of the team know my first name, something you do not often get these days, this all added to the personalised touch that was given at Start Smiling. A massive thank you to you all for going above and beyond at every point in the journey.Tom Lawson Thank you for my smile makeover and your friendly and professional service. I have been going to Start Smiling for a number of years and cannot recommend Dr Tom, Dr Tony and the rest of the team highly enough. I have received a complete smile makeover, which over the course of a year involved straightening, shaping and whitening my teeth. This process involved multiple visits, and I like many people am not the biggest fan of dental visits, but the entire experience at Start Smiling was superb from start to finish. The facilities are excellent, and the team show a genuine passion for what they do.I now have the confidence to 'start smiling', and am extremely grateful for their services!:) I have recently finished my treatment with Tony and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I found Tony to be very understanding of what I wanted to achieve and I honestly felt like he wanted the best result for me too. I had a brace when I was younger but I still never had the smile I wanted, so after a recommendation from a colleague I went to see Tony to see what could be done. I had the C-fast braces and couldn’t believe how quickly my teeth straightened, my bottom brace came off after 4 months and my top after 6 months! We then started the whitening treatment for a few weeks before finishing off with some composite bonding on some of my front teeth. Not only Tony but all of the other staff at start-smiling who were involved in my journey, were always so personable and welcoming, I cannot thank the team enjoy. If it isn’t already obvious, I highly recommend anyone who is unhappy with their smile to visit the practice �

FREE Guide To Smile Makeovers
A dental veneer is a shell, or layer of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite. It is placed over the front surface of your tooth to fix worn teeth, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discolouration and chips or cracks. A crown is like a veneer, but covers the full circumference and biting surface of a tooth.
Cosmetic bonding, often called resin bonding, is when a tooth-coloured resin is bonded to your teeth, then sculpted into the proper shape. The resin is a composite of liquid acrylic and tiny particles of glass. The composite resin forms a durable, stain-resistant surface that can be polished to mimic the texture of your natural teeth.
The technique involves taking impressions of your teeth and getting laboratory made, custom bleaching trays. Tooth whitening gel is then applied to the trays which are fitted to the teeth.
The trays hold the gel on the teeth and with time the teeth lighten. The more often you apply the gel the lighter the teeth will go.
We use treatments that will perfect your teeth in just a matter of months! Our braces are so discreet, no one need know that you even have a brace in!
We offer different types of braces depending on your needs. We have tooth-coloured brackets and wires that fit on the front of your teeth. We have brackets and wires that fit behind your teeth, and we have clear plastic, removable aligners.
