For patients who want a complete Smile Makeover, porcelain veneers can be a popular treatment option. However, many patients wrongly believe if they have veneers, it has to involve the total destruction of their natural teeth underneath – actually, this doesn’t always have to be the case as my patient discovered.Read More
Just like retail, the cosmetic industry is saturated with offers to attract the attention of potential patients. Whether it be half price teeth whitening, prices slashed on teeth straightening or cheap Botox and filler offers.Read More
The length of time it takes to transform someone’s smile will vary considerably. Every patient is different, and while some may have their teeth refreshed in just one sitting, the treatment plan for others may involve more invasive treatment over the course of six months to two years…Read More
Not everyone enjoys a visit to the dentist. In fact, more people than you think avoid dental check-ups intentionally due to a dental phobia or a negative past experience.
Unfortunately, missing regular appointments is likely to create additional oral health problems in the future – especially if there is poor dental hygiene – with patients potentially requiring more in-depth treatment to restore their teeth and gums back to health.Read More

It may only be January, but I’ve started plenty of smile transformation cases for patients who want straight teeth for summer.

With this in mind, he wanted to improve the look of his teeth and achieve a more symmetrical and whiter smile.Read More
Want to straighten your teeth without people noticing? The ‘Secret Smiles’ brace – otherwise known as lingual braces – allows you to do just that.
For this patient, they were the ideal solution. He knew he wanted a straighter smile but didn’t particularly want to wear braces that were visible. Lingual braces were bonded to the inside of his upper and lower teeth – completely out of sight – meaning he could achieve the results he wanted, without having a noticeable brace attached.
