Enhance your look with a smile makeover

Smile makeovers Essex allow you to bring together and enhance your appearance, using some of the most effective methods available in a minimally invasive manner.smile-makeovers-essex

Teeth and mouths have a disproportionately large effect on our overall perception of beauty. We are inexplicably drawn through conversation and general curiosity to each other’s mouths and teeth. Strong healthy teeth have long been a perceived indication of wealth, status and  long-term health, with tooth loss due to poor nutrition not uncommon in years gone by.

Poor oral health was a hard thing to rectify and a hard thing to hide in the past, so it makes perfect sense to have used it as a marker up to the present day. The good news is that this means we can make substantial alterations in somebody’s overall perceived attractiveness with very minor, yet visually important, alterations. It may not be apparently obvious what the most effective route of this is, but an important guide comes in the form of a smile makeovers Essex consultation. With our excellent staff it can make all the difference and put you on the right track, saving you a significant quantity of time and money over the long term.

Gum contouring

Gum contouring is an excellent example of the sort of treatment that does not come to people’s minds. It involves altering the shape of the contours of the gum; this can help increase the definition between the tooth and the gum by creating symmetrical arches over each tooth. This symmetry has long been associated with health, as the loss of it due to inflammation is a sign of gingivitis and early disease.

Tooth lightening

Tooth whitening is one of those treatments that has waxed and waned since first appearing in the 80s, but no longer does it focus on the phosphorescent white look associated with its first introduction. Today, a more natural, light-handed approach to increasing a tooth shade slightly or reducing dark spots is focused upon.


Veneers are the most effective and often the fastest treatment option, but they are usually reserved for particularly difficult cases or ones on a particularly tight time schedule, such as the run-up to a wedding, as they do have a significant cost.

That said, these individually handcrafted wafers of porcelain can really work their magic when it comes to overcoming almost any aesthetic dental challenge, allowing teeth to appear to be straighter and healthier, covering chips, cracks and permanent tooth discolourations.

Treatment schedules and overall costs

There is no set treatment schedule when it comes to smile makeovers Essex; one patient may simply require a scale and polish and a gentle lightening, where another may need aesthetic orthodontic treatment followed by veneers, resulting in radically different treatment times and costs. But we will endeavour to structure the treatment in such a way that costs and time are minimised, performing procedures in parallel when possible.

Our clinic offers financing options for patients over the age of 18 who are UK residents. This allows you to spread out the cost of your care and avoid your options being limited by your budget.

If you or any of your family members would be interested, please feel free to get in contact with our clinic either online or over the phone.

Enjoy lasting results with smile makeovers Essex

If you haven’t heard of smile makeovers in Essex, then perhaps it is time that you found out more about this innovative technique that many celebrities enjoy the benefits of. For those individuals who are looking for that Instagram perfect smile, then look no further than smile makeovers Essex as your one-stop treatment option to disguise any issues that you might have regarding the appearance of your smile.smile-makeovers-essex

This treatment provides fast results, especially for the dramatic change that you can expect. We can usually finalise and present your full smile makeovers Essex treatment plan within a couple of appointments, allowing for a week or two to create your bespoke veneers. Our professionals have mastered that balance between perfection and expectations with the appearance of a smile and honouring your natural beauty so that the result that you can expect will always be an outstanding one. In other words, we hold true to your unique beauty whilst perfecting, whitening, straightening and, in general, beautifying your teeth so that you can feel confident with having picture-perfect teeth that rival the stars’.

How do we do this?

We use porcelain veneers to achieve this look, a long-lasting and durable solution to many of your cosmetic dental issues. These veneers are extremely thin shells made from very tough material then cemented on to the outer surface of your teeth using a special dental glue. We first need to roughen up the surface of your natural teeth by removing an extremely fine layer of enamel before applying the cement and positioning the veneers on top of this.

Because of this, it is important that you understand the commitment to using this style of treatment. Although your veneers are expected to last many years, once they chip or break off, you do need to replace them quickly to protect the integrity of your teeth. This cosmetic solution is not for the budget-minded, but if you are willing to commit to this expense, then you can enjoy beautiful teeth that might otherwise not be possible without lengthy treatment plans.

What can they protect and cover?

Your dental veneers can be used to cover and protect chipped teeth, broken teeth, slightly misaligned teeth, stained teeth, short teeth and much more. Although we have specific solutions for these issues, we might not be able to achieve the result that we could otherwise provide for you when using a veneer in a quick and effective way.

You can choose to use a single veneer to cover a problem tooth, but should you opt for a more dramatic and life-changing result, then using a full set will enable you to push the boundaries and create a brilliantly white smile, larger teeth or some other feature that you feel compliments your personality in the best possible way.

If you’re interested in seeing the change that this treatment can offer and discuss in more detail some specific features of the process, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to find out more.

Achieve your best smile through smile makeovers in Essex

Let Essex flourish

smile-makeovers-essexHere at Crofts Dental Practice, we feel that we recognise the importance of presenting a healthy aesthetically pleasing image. More and more, across all age and social demographics, there has been an increased focus on aesthetics and what we present to the world through social media platforms. Never before has there been such an increase in the number of new patients seeking out smile makeovers in Essex to address a number of superficial issues and concerns patients have with their smiles and maximise the overall aesthetic appeal that their smiles have.

Cosmetic guidance

Often, a large percentage of us wish we could boost the overall aesthetics of our smiles, but are left in the dark about how to go about doing so. We are all aware that there are a sea of cosmetic dentistry options out there, but we are unsure as to which are best suited to our specific needs and requirements. As such, it is for this reason that many are seeking out smile makeovers in Essex through our cosmetic dentistry specialist. These are one-to-one consultation and guidance sessions with one of our cosmetic dentistry experts, which are established to gauge each patient’s unique needs and expectations from our services and explain each procedure we offer and how best it may be used to meet the patient’s goals and provide them with the smile they deserve.

Crafting your smile

The consultation is just the first step for those seeking out smile makeovers in Essex, and is done to familiarise the patient with the procedures that are available and determine their needs and how best to meet them. This consultation is entirely free and without commitment, but thereafter – if the patient wishes to continue seeking smile makeovers in Essex – X-rays and photographs may be taken to allow our cosmetic dentistry specialists to get a better knowledge of the patient’s teeth. From these X-rays and photographs, a detailed, bespoke, tailored treatment plan will then be drawn up and on knowing the course of treatment which the patient wishes to take, the cosmetic specialist may begin treatment immediately.

Getting beneath the surface

One of the most sought after forms of cosmetic dentistry which we provide here at Crofts Dental Practice is cosmetic tooth whitening. This is a process which is popular across all age and social demographics and aims to eradicate any superficial discolouration or stains on your teeth and leave you with a fresher, whiter smile. Over time, the natural enamel – outermost layer of tooth – can become dull or discoloured. This can often have a negative impact on the self-esteem of many, and cause them to turn to cosmetic dentistry. Also, certain lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking red wine or black coffee or taking certain medications can speed up the discolouration of tooth enamel and cause superficial staining. Cosmetic tooth whitening however, uses a peroxide-based whitening gel to rid teeth of these stains and return them to their natural whiteness. This is done by applying a small amount of whitening gel to the insides of a custom-moulded retainer of the patient’s teeth. When worn, the whitening agent within the gel cleans the enamel of the patient’s teeth and results in them having a far whiter and healthier looking, renewed smile in a matter of hours.

Looking in the mirror

What do you see when you smile at yourself in the mirror? Fabulous eyes? Lovely skin? How about those teeth? Or are you smiling with your lips firmly closed together?

If you are, then there is work to be done and at Crofts Dental Practice in Essex, we want to help you do it. We believe that your smile is one of your most important assets and we want to help you make the most of it.

Smile Makeovers in EssexFree consultations

If you are already one of our patients, did you know you can get a free smile makeover consultation with us?

Have you heard of smile makeovers? They are our way of helping you transform your smile by taking a really good look at what nature gave you in the way of teeth and how we can help nature make them look better.

Researchers have studied teeth and how they need to look to bring out the natural beauty of your smile. Teeth need to be in proportion with each other, and with your jaws and face for your smile to look its best.

They also need to be a good colour, well aligned and in good condition.

When you come to us for a consultation, we can take a look at all these factors and then write up a treatment plan that will enhance the natural beauty of your teeth.

What kind of treatments might you have?

If your teeth are a bit wonky, we will probably suggest that you start with cosmetic braces to straighten them up. If it’s only one or two teeth that are mildly misaligned, we might be able to disguise this with veneers.

Veneers are a great cosmetic treatment, covering over all sorts of imperfections on the front of the teeth, such as chips, cracks, worn edges and some staining. Most surface stains can be removed with teeth whitening, which is always a great way to enhance the teeth. It’s surprising how dull they get with all the foods and drinks we eat.

Less common treatments include gum contouring, which removes excess gum tissue, where it comes too far down over the teeth.

Come on in and find out what we can do for you.

A new handbag or a new smile?

You can spend an incredible amount of money on a new handbag or a pair of shoes. How much wear do you think you will get out them? How many days a year will they spend in their protector bags in the closet, never seeing daylight? As far as cost per wear (a measure of how worthwhile an item is), you may be looking at huge amounts. And yet, if you spent the same money on sorting out your smile, you’d be using your new investment all day every day.

Smile makeovers in EssexA good smile brings such a wide array of physical, social, and emotional benefits that smile makeovers should be at the top of everyone’s ‘must have’ list.

Smile makeovers are what we in the dental profession call cosmetic work that encompasses more than one treatment, and they are rather amazing. Here’s how they work:

We look at your whole smile

With our smile makeovers in Essex, we take your whole smile into account. We look at the size, shape, colour and alignment of the teeth, as well as their ratio to the gums, and the surrounding facial features. We then devise a programme of treatments to bring all these features into a harmonious whole to create the most flattering, healthy and natural looking smile for each patient.

Your smile makeover could be as simple and quick as tidying up worn edges, or covering up chips and cracks with a veneer or two, or cosmetic bonding, plus a whitening treatment. Or it could be a series of carefully planned treatments that need to be carried out in a particular order, shoring up decaying or failing teeth with crowns, replacing others with dental implants, realigning crooked ones with invisible braces, removing stains with whitening. The sky’s the limit!

You may even choose some facial aesthetics work to brighten up the face and lips, which make up the frame in which the smile sits.

The main thing with smile makeovers is that the end result needs to look like it has been there being beautiful and natural for your whole life. Why not come in for a consultation with us to find out more?

Transform your face with a smile makeover in Essex

Achieving the best smile possible goes beyond just cleaning your teeth and avoiding cavities. Fixing cosmetic flaws such as misaligned teeth, discolourations and fractures, is the first step to a great smile. Smile makeovers can have a profound impact on the signs of ageing and on your overall appearance in general.

At Crofts Dental Practice in Essex, smile makeovers are the ideal treatment for patients who want to transform their smile entirely. After performing a comprehensive analysis of your smile, our experienced dentists, can advise you on the best cosmetic dentistry treatment or series of treatments for your individual needs. The exact type of treatment as well as the length and cost of treatment, will be personalised for each patient.

Smile Makeovers in EssexA common cosmetic treatment used in our smile makeovers are dental veneers. These are custom-made, thin shells made of porcelain or composite, which are bonded in front of your teeth. Dental veneers are minimally invasive compared to other cosmetic procedures and are widely used to restore chipped, misaligned or discoloured teeth and cosmetically alter your smile. Unlike dental implants and bridges, dental veneers require minimal preparation of the teeth. At Crofts Dental Practice we offer a special type of veneers, Lumineers, which are ultra-thin, durable veneers that require no tooth preparation at all.

Yellow and discoloured teeth can take away from an otherwise healthy smile. Professional teeth whitening can safely brighten your teeth by many shades. Tooth colour and shading can also be fixed with veneers, dental crowns or even composite cosmetic bonding.

If you require a more extensive smile makeover, we can include crowns, bridges, teeth straightening or even dental implants to completely rejuvenate your smile. Dental implants not only look and feel natural, but also fuse with your jawbone to provide maximum support and resilience.

Some of these treatments are instant and can be completed in one visit, while others may take more than one visit and can be completed over the course of a few months. All of our cosmetic dentistry treatments are carried out to the highest standard using only high-quality materials and trusted techniques.

What is involved in smile makeovers in Essex?

Smile makeovers are, as the name suggests, a complete revitalisation for your smile. They can include a number of treatments over a period of time that are all part of a plan to give you a bright new look. After a detailed, free consultation at Crofts Dental Practice, you will be given the opportunity to take a journey towards a new you. With our smile makeovers in Essex, we offer transformation, and renewed self-assurance to patients who are ready to take the next step.

At Crofts Dental Practice, Essex, smile makeovers are often made up of a series of procedures from our range depending on the adjustments you want. Below are details about just some of the things that can be changed or refined and some ideas on how we might go about doing it.

smile-makeoversShape and size

You can have the shape and size of your teeth adjusted with something like veneers. These are sheets of durable, tooth coloured material that are placed over the top of a tooth or multiple teeth. These can be a slightly different shape or size to your original tooth and so can correct unevenness or maybe even close a small gap.


We have a range of teeth alignment options available to straighten you teeth. These range from invisible braces and clear aligners to something more traditional depending on what work you need, what budget you have and what your needs are in terms of aesthetics while you are undergoing treatment.


For all of our treatments, we like to give you options to make sure you feel you have a choice and can have the treatment that most closely matches you needs. Our teeth whitening service is no exception. We have a speedy, one day, in-clinic option and an at home, highly effective, do-it-yourself option. You may choose a combination of both depending on the effect you want to achieve.

Missing teeth

If you come for a smile makeover and you have missing teeth, you are likely to want to start there as gaps in the teeth can be unsightly, obvious and can have knock-on oral hygiene effects. We offer crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants depending on what you need. Each of these solutions has different benefits and drawbacks that your dental practitioner will discuss with you in detail.

New smile, new you

Have you heard about cosmetic dentistry but do not know what the best treatment for you might be? Maybe you already know about some treatments, such as teeth whitening, but are wondering if that will be enough to have the impact you want. At Crofts Dental Practice, Essex, smile makeovers are something that we offer to patients to ensure that they are able to access all of the treatments that are appropriate for them.

It may be that you need a combination of treatments and this is why we offer smile makeovers in Essex. It means that your dentist can put together a package that does everything you need. They will be able to guide you on which treatments to have first, provide you with a detailed timetable of appointments that also lets you know what to expect from each visit and give you information about the costs involved.

We offer a free smile makeover consultation so you can check your options before going ahead with anything. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you might have about cosmetic treatment or visiting the dentist in general.
