The natural smile

Many people want their teeth to look amazing but don’t necessarily want a dazzling white celebrity Hollywood Smile.

Defining a discreet, natural smile

Our dentists are highly skilled at creating bespoke, natural-looking smiles for our patients. A more discreet look is popular with professionals like lawyers and doctors and those who want a great smile without being conspicuous. We can enhance your smile with various techniques, including veneers, braces, teeth whitening, ceramic crowns, white fillings and Dental Implants.  Our skilled dentists have a talent for understanding the importance of colour, lines and facial symmetry to create a beautifully natural look.

Natural smiles are perceived as youthful smiles

A young smile looks different from an older smile. The natural smile is the creation of a smile that looks natural for you as a person.

A youthful smile appears:

  • whiter
  • smoother
  • with little colour variation
  • with translucency in the incisal tip area showing developmental mamelons
  • with little tooth wear – thus, the incisal edge is irregular
  • the teeth are rectangular
Qualities of a mature smile

An older smile appears:

  • Darker with texture
  • with colour variation and characterisation such as fine fracture lines
  • with little translucency in the incisal tip area showing developmental mamelons
  • With tooth wear – thus, the incisal edge is smooth
  • It is often shorter and square due to the tooth wear

The amount of teeth visible in the upper front teeth varies with age. This can be an essential consideration when designing a smile to appear natural for a specific age group. This will be :

  • 3.5 mm at the age of 30
    1 mm at the age of 50
    0.5mm at the age of 70

On the converse, the lower teeth increase in visibility as people age.

The dentist tested the above parameters by getting the patient to speak some text whilst recording this on a video from the front. The average amount of teeth visible during the speech can then be seen by watching the video. This information is used during the creation of the smile. This can also be elicited by speaking and repeating the letter “M” a few times.

The above characteristics can also be considered when creating a perfect smile.

Treatments to create a youthful smile


eneers can be used to straighten teeth, close gaps and reduce protrusion as well as change the colour of existing teeth.

We have noticed that there is a growing demand for customised, natural-looking veneers created by professional dental ceramists, offering a balance of lifelike translucency and opaque whiteness.

Our experienced dental lab technicians can add lifelike characteristics to your smile including subtly darkening veneers toward the gum line to mimic natural teeth. We can texturize your veneers to resemble your real teeth instead of having a perfectly flat veneer.

Teeth Whitening

Having a tooth whitening treatment doesn’t mean that you have to leave the dental clinic with the brightest, whitest teeth. We can whiten your teeth to your exact chosen shade in our dental clinic using a combination of bleaching solutions with LED Lamps to accelerate your results. We can make your teeth lighter and brighter while still looking natural.

Invisible Braces

Our dentists have years of experience straightening our patient’s teeth with invisible braces like Invisalign and Cfast. Get straighter teeth in just a few months with no hassle. Find out more here.

Pay Monthly With 0%

Our recommended cosmetic treatments have left thousands of patients feeling better and more confident about their appearance – now we can help ensure they’re available for a wider range of patients, with varying budgets with 0% finance over 24 months.

Trial your smile

We can create a few trial veneers to your chosen specifications and temporarily bond them to your teeth for you to see what your smile will look like before committing to your permanent veneers.

This gives you an opportunity to check the shade and look of your veneers and for your dentist to make any changes to the shape, texture or colour.

First, we need to perform a thorough cosmetic assessment of your smile and a highly detailed examination of your teeth, gums, bites, muscles, and joints.

We assess your mouth using the most advanced diagnostic technology, including study casts, bite records, CT scans, Digital Photography X-ray machines, and T-scans to assess your bite. Find out more about our digital smile design process.

We will then create bespoke plans, depending on your aims and desired smile look. These options will include timelines for the appointments and treatment fees.
