Most patients I see are nervous, self-conscious of their teeth and think that nothing can be done. They're always surprised at the options available and how we can help them. Sometimes very little treatment can make such a dramatic change. The most satisfying part of the job is not only seeing the difference in a person’s teeth, but the difference in the person; more confident, smiling and not worrying about coming to the dentist.

The secret of a great smile
We all recognise a great smile when we see one. In fact, the smile is the first thing we notice when we meet people for the first time. It makes an immediate impression on us and plays a large part of the visual assessment that we perform on each other every day.
Some people are blessed by nature with an attractive smile and soon learn to make the most of this feature by smiling confidently and frequently. For others their smile may not be their favourite feature and smiling may become self conscious and infrequent.
If you do not have confidence in your smile you are not alone, many people go through life covering their lips, covering their teeth and avoiding smiling in photographs. All of the patients on our website were not happy with their smiles. They have all learned to smile again.
The secret behind many celebrity smiles is modern cosmetic dentistry. Celebrities have long known the value of a great smile and invest in themselves to look their best. Thankfully high quality cosmetic dentistry is no longer the secret of the rich and famous. Due to advances in technology, cosmetic dentistry is better value and more accessible than ever.
Investing in our oral health and appearance can have a lasting impact on the quality of our lives. The transformations that we can produce go far beyond the mouth, with many patients starting by improving their teeth and then radically changing their whole look to live up to their more confident and younger smile
