Smile makeovers are the latest trend in cosmetic dentistry, offering a range of options to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Due to such high demand for our first-ever Smile Makeover Consultation Open Day on 29th June, we've decided to open another date on Saturday 10th August. The day was such a success with all of our patients, we can't wait to see how we can change the lives of even more patients! If you're thinking about changing your smile but aren't quite ready to make the move, read on to find out more about how the day went and what Gateway Dental can offer you.

What to expect?

  • The dentist will ask about your goals, concerns, and expectations.

  • Document your case using photographs and x-rays to understand your dental structure better.

  • The dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health and check for any underlying issues such as cavities, gum disease, or misalignment.

  • We will use digital imaging technology to create a preview of the potential results for a combination of many treatments. Furthermore, a "mock-up" can be created for certain treatments to see the results on your teeth before committing.

  • The dentist will discuss various treatment options available, and create a tailored treatment plan based on your needs and goals, which will include an estimated timeline and cost for the makeover.

  • You will have a chance to ask any questions, you might have, about the procedures and maintenance.

What if I'm still not sure if I want to go ahead?

It's perfectly normal to feel uncertain about committing to a smile makeover. We understand that undergoing cosmetic dental treatments is a significant decision, and we want you to feel completely comfortable and confident before proceeding. That’s why we offer several ways to help you envision the potential results without any obligation.

One of the key services we provide is the creation of mock-ups. Here’s how this process works and how it can help you make an informed decision:

  • Using cutting-edge digital imaging technology, we create a virtual representation of your new smile. This allows you to see what your teeth will look like after the makeover.

  • The mock-up is customized based on your dental structure, personal preferences, and the specific treatments being considered, such as veneers, crowns, or teeth whitening.

  • In some cases, we can create temporary restorations that you can try on. This allows you to experience the look and feel of your new smile in real life.

  • During your consultation, we’ll walk you through the mock-up process, explaining each step and how the proposed treatments will address your specific concerns.

  • You’ll have the opportunity to provide feedback and make adjustments to the design. This collaborative approach ensures that the final result aligns with your vision.

  • Seeing a preview of your new smile can alleviate concerns and help you feel more confident about the outcome.

  • Mock-ups provide a clear visual guide, allowing you to make a well-informed decision about whether to proceed with the treatments.

  • Remember, the consultation and mock-up process comes with no obligation to proceed. It’s a risk-free way to explore your options and understand the potential results.

You're at the top of your game, and you deserve a smile to match!
