The renowned philosopher and logician Bertrand Russell once quipped that ‘everything is vague to a degree you do not realise till you have tried to make it precise.’ Despite how familiar and simple sounding a ‘smile makeover’ is, it is precisely Russell’s observation we encounter when trying to define it. In essence, a smile makeover is defined by its end result: You have achieved, by whatever procedures were necessary, the smile you desired. It is an umbrella term for a variety of treatments, all of which end with that. If you’re preparing for a wedding, however, semantics aren’t really first and foremost in your mind, so rest easy dear reader; We at Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol will utilise our expertise to its fullest extent in order to make your desired smile a reality, all you have to do is tell us what you’d want it to look like!

Typical treatments: focus on dental veneers
One recommended treatment very popular with celebrities is the application of dental veneers. Veneers are wafer thin shells of material which can be fitted to your teeth, thus covering up any ornamental atrocities or decorative detractions which you may worry are on your teeth. Veneers only require two sessions to be fitted, though it can take a few weeks for the final product to be produced in a lab. In the meantime, you may be fitted with temporary veneers. They are great at covering cracks, chips and stains. Although not ideal, they can also cover upper mildly crooked teeth in a treatment nicknamed ‘instant orthodontics’, thus bypassing lengthy orthodontic treatment.
The total package
A complete smile makeover, in the case of front teeth too crooked for veneers alone, could combine orthodontics with veneers. Equally, you could have a dental implant fitted and your healthy teeth whitened. It’s up to you! Let us know your dream smile and we’ll make it a reality.
