What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is used to describe a combination of cosmetic dental treatments such as tooth whitening with veneers. Many patients combine cosmetic dental treatments with certain facial aesthetics treatments to restore a more youthful-looking appearance and improve their wellbeing.  


What are the benefits of a smile makeover?

  • Improve your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Improve the aesthetics of your smile.
  • Improve the health of your smile.
  • Correct poorly-aligned teeth by incorporating orthodontic treatment.
  • ‘Reset’ your dental health.


Here are some of the cosmetic treatments we can offer as part of a smile makeover at Cliftonville… 

Dental bridges

Dental bridges are used to (literally!) bridge a gap in your teeth. Unnatural gaps in your teeth are unhealthy and can affect how you chew as well as expose you to a high risk of gum disease, so it’s important to address this as soon as possible. A dental bridge is a fixed solution therefore there is no hassle involved with removing it to go to sleep or to eat – you can treat your bridge like natural teeth. Bridges join an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or can be supported by dental implants.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a bespoke process here at Cliftonville where we create custom whitening trays that are an exact fit for your teeth. This is essential in ensuring the safety of the procedure and patients must not try to seek this procedure from anyone else other than a dentist or a doctor. You will have the chance to discuss the shade and colour you would like your teeth to be.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a fixed solution, replacing a tooth’s root. They are widely considered as the next best thing to a real tooth as they fuse with your jawbone, becoming a permanent part of your body. A restoration such as a crown is placed over the top of your implant, which can be maintained in exactly the same way as natural teeth.

Dental bonding

Were you once fitted with an amalgam filling and are now looking for a more cosmetically appealing solution to replace it? We offer white fillings made from composite resin that blend in with your teeth, so you no longer need to worry about exposing your more conspicuous amalgam filling to the world.  Your white filling will be custom-created to match your tooth shade and then bonded with adhesives to support its structure.


Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that can be placed over the top of a cracked, discoloured or damaged tooth in order to improve its appearance. Veneers are very popular in combination with tooth whitening as a cost-effective solution in improving discoloured teeth. Other issues that can be resolved with veneers are protruding and crowded teeth.


Perhaps you have misaligned teeth that have made your brushing and flossing routine challenging and compromised the shade of your teeth? Crowded teeth and unnatural gaps can make it difficult to reach certain parts of your mouth which may have caused a build-up of plaque or darkened your teeth. We offer orthodontic treatment such as Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and the Inman aligner, discreet and effective brace-types used worldwide – you can read more about these here.  Once you have undergone the orthodontic treatment that you required, you may wish to whiten your teeth if they have suffered as a result of their previous structure – you can read more about teeth whitening here.
