It’s Valentine’s Day, dedicated to showing our partners, friends, and family that we love them. But sometimes, self-love is the most important of all – and dental imperfections can make us feel unconfident and hesitant to smile.

At Ten Dental, we’re experts in improving our patients’ confidence using cosmetic dental treatments. Makeovers combine two or more of these to fix multiple imperfections and produce a stunning result, and you can try your new smile on before you go ahead! 

Here’s how these treatments could help you fall back in love with your smile again:


What is a smile makeover?

Often, concerns about our dental imperfections don’t come in isolation. That’s the beauty of a smile makeover! This phrase simply means planning multiple treatments that work together to elevate your teeth in different ways. 

Maybe you’ve always disliked how uneven your front teeth are and have also noticed that their edges have become worn over time and that some parts have started to discolour. In this instance, we could recommend a smile makeover using Invisalign, composite edge bonding, and teeth whitening.

By combining treatments, we would target all three of these imperfections. First, we will straighten your smile with Invisalign aligners to ensure your teeth are neatly aligned. Then, we would elevate the shade of your teeth before using edge bonding to smooth rough surfaces with colour-matched composite resin. 


Remember what it feels like to smile proudly

Feeling insecure about your teeth can prevent you from making the most of your life. Rather than enjoying time with your friends, laughing at jokes, or speaking to new people, you might feel more inclined to hide your smile away. Perhaps even feel hesitant to say accept exciting opportunities like job interviews. 

A neat, white, healthy-looking smile will help you to move through your life with the confidence you deserve. It can improve your interactions with friends, family, and colleagues – especially if you have a people-facing role or one that requires public speaking. 

Everyone has the right to feel good about themselves. When you choose a smile makeover at Ten Dental, you’ll give yourself the most important gifts of all: self-confidence, positivity, and motivation to make the most of your life!


Smile makeovers aren’t just style over substance 

It’s a common misconception that cosmetic dental treatments are all for show. They can work wonders at restoring damaged teeth, protecting your enamel, preventing tooth decay, and helping maintain your facial structure too!

For instance, having a misaligned smile puts you at greater risk of developing tooth decay, as harmful bacteria can easily gather around the overlapping crevices between your teeth. By straightening your smile with Invisalign, it’ll be easier for you to brush and floss your teeth, preventing plaque and calculus build-up. 


See a simulation of your smile before you go ahead 

At Ten Dental, smile makeovers are what we do best! Our cosmetic dentists have transformed hundreds of smiles with treatments like composite bonding, teeth whitening, and Invisalign – their expertise makes the process as straightforward as possible, and they will ensure you get the most out of your treatment. 

We always offer an initial consultation if you are considering any change to your smile. We’ll examine your teeth and gums and take a 3D scan to help us identify any issues that might prevent you from getting the most out of your treatment.

We’ll use these scans to create a digital or physical mock-up of what your smile could look like post-treatment. This is the exciting part! It’s the perfect opportunity for you to visualise your brand-new smile and make any changes to your proposed treatment plan before we go ahead.

For composite bonding treatment, we’ll give you the chance to trial your new smile in person! What does this mean? The ‘smile trial’ process involves attaching temporary composite bonding to your teeth so you can see exactly what the finished product will look like. You can tweak the positioning of the bonding to ensure it’s just right before we bond the permanent resin to your teeth.


What do our patients think?

We could spend all day talking about why we think you should get a smile makeover at Ten Dental, but perhaps you’d rather hear from our patients who have had this treatment themselves. We are always thrilled when someone takes the time to leave us a review – here are a few of our recent favourites:

“I have had a great experience working with Ten Dental over the past year. I had Invisalign and teeth whitening with Dr Omer Mustafa and am thrilled with the results. Dr Omer Mustafa has always been so polite and friendly at appointments and is passionate about the treatment provided. I would highly recommend it to others and have already suggested to a few friends to book a consultation at Ten Dental.” – Katie Tilley 

“I have received treatment from Dr Wanendeya, Dr Huang, and Dr Bozis and have found them all to be highly trained and exceptional clinicians. I have been treated in both the Clapham and Balham clinics and found the premises to be clean, tidy and pristine. The reception staff are warm and welcoming unlike other dental surgeries I had attended in the past, I felt like a valued client and not just another procedure on a conveyor belt. I had one session with the hygienist Ms Beckford and my teeth felt amazing afterwards. Sufficient time is always allocated for my appointments and any procedures are thoroughly explained beforehand. I always feel free to ask any questions and my anxieties are alleviated. The surgery rooms themselves are bright, modern and spacious, and high-quality equipment and materials are used. It takes me over an hour to get to the surgery but it is well worth the time, energy and financial investment. Overall I am extremely satisfied with the treatment I have received at Ten Dental and would highly recommend this clinic for any of your dental needs.” – Dorothy Biney
