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
