While in conversation, most of us tend to  focus the mid face of the other person.
The most important facial feature in the mid face is the SMILE. A  smile can affect a
person's self esteem and impact their relationships and interactions with others.
Below are some questions which might help you look into various aspects of your smile:
  • Do you shy away from smiling in public, especially in front of strangers?
  • How often do you smile?
  • Do you look at pictures of models and actors, and wish that you had a smile like theirs?
  • When you look at your pictures, do you like your smile?
  • When you look at your pictures, do they make you look confident?
  • When you look at your pictures, do you see a full smile, or smile with your lips closed?
  • When was the last time you had a hearty full laugh?
  • What is the colour of your teeth - yellow or white?
  • Is the colour of your teeth uniform?
  • Is the surface of your teeth smooth or rough?
  • Do you have irregular, decayed, missing or chipped teeth?
  • Do you have spaces between your teeth?
  • How much of your gums show when you smile?
  • Do the edges of your teeth follow the curve of the lower lip?
  • Do the gums of your teeth show symmetry or are uneven?
  • Do you have ill-fitting dental work done on your front teeth?
  • Do your gums bleed on brushing or appear swollen?
  • Do your teeth hurt or are sensitive?
  • Do you have bad breath or have been told so?
  • Are your teeth shaky or mobile?
  • Do you have recession of the gums?
  • Does any tooth appear out of line or excessively longer?
  • Does your smile blend with your personality - sharper edges on their teeth denoting a more aggressive masculine look or rounded edges, denoting a a softer feminine look?
At our practice we offer our patients a comprehensive smile analysis.
If you're unhappy with your smile or are looking to change the colour, shape or legnth of your teeth, then a smile makeover could be right for you. A smile makeover is made up of one or more cosmetic dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.

Smile makeovers can involve a wide variety of treatments, for instance some patients want perfectly white teeth whilst others may want to improve the aesthetics of their fillings by having their amalgam fillings replaced with a white composite. Whatever you're looking for there's more options to improve your smile than ever before
Crooked teeth :
This can be corrected using traditional orthodontic methods or the new generation of 'invisible' braces. You may want to opt for porcelain veneers for a quick fix but you will need to have some of your natural tooth structure shaved off to accommodate them.
Chipped or Broken teeth :
These can be repaired through a number of treatments. Which treatment is right for you largely depends on how severe the damage is but potential treatments include veneers, crowns or cosmetic bonding.
Missing teeth :
These can be replaced using dental restorations such as implants, bridges and dentures.
Gaps between teeth
These can be closed as gaps can often cause functional problems as well as being aesthetic issues. Potential treatments include veneers or orthodontics to move the teeth.
Gummy Smiles
Easily fixed through use of gum contouring either surgically or via laser.
Teeth whitening
Stains can be removed with prophylactic cleaning or a number of professional teeth whitening products.
