There are many ways and techniques to create a new smile. The aim is not to only create a predictable, beautiful and long-lasting smile our patients are happy with but also where the chosen method is the one where the disadvantages are understood and accepted.
There are specific indications for using each technique.
Teeth whitening provide the simplest treatment, which under dental supervision can improve the colour of teeth with little or no detriment to the teeth. There is a limit to the shade change that teeth whitening can deliver.
Immediate veneers are indicated when only a few veneers are required in the plan. The required change in aesthetics is often simple.
Micro bonding allows small addition of composite resin to improve the straightness of the teeth primarily on the Invisalign edges of the teeth, with often no or minimal drilling. A new material Omnichroma, by Tokuyama allows a single material to match and blend with any tooth shade thus creating a chameleon like enhancement.
Where the teeth are crooked then a variety of teeth straightening methods a can improve the smile within a short period of time depending on the method used and the severity of crowding. This includes Invisalign, Cfast, and Incognito.
A combination of the above techniques is sometime required and used.
Alternative techniques include a variety of options that can still create your new smile

I have been visiting Perfect Smile for couple years for on going treatment including implants and Veneers. I developed an abscess over Christmas Holiday with a fever where I passed out on my kitchen floor. I did email Gurs not expecting him to reply within an hour or so (especially it being the festive season) Gurs suggested I should get to the hospital to get antibiotics and emergency dentist next day. Gurs kept in touch daily to check on my welfare. A week later I was well enough to travel from Norfolk to Perfect Smile. The following week Negan did root canal. The team are first class, who make you welcome and always asking if I would like a drink. The treatment has cost me thousands. Money well spent!! I now have The Perfect Smile.

Answer a few simple questions and you can begin your journey on possibly having veneers.
Whiter brighter teeth
Veneers are thin, ceramic shells designed to give you a natural smile. Ultrathin, Durathin and Lumineers are just a few of the brands we provide. Normally achieved in two appointments.
Composite / Immediate Veneers
Composite veneers cost less than other veneers and require little or no tooth preparation at all. Have your veneers fitted in as little as one appointment.

Our free no obligation Initial Consultation will be with our dentist and/or our Treatment Coordinators. The suitability of options discussed will ultimately be dependent upon your clinical assessment with a dentist at the practice.
