Smile Makeovers

Inman Aligner, Clear Braces, Bridges, Crowns, Veneers and Tooth Whitening

Before

This lady was unhappy with the alignment, shape, size and colour of her teeth.

Her upper right front tooth was mobile.

After

The first stage was to extract the loose upper front tooth and straighten the upper and lower teeth using Inman Aligners and Braces.

The upper Clear Braces included a false tooth so that she never had any time with a gap in the front.

After tooth whitening we created a new smile with bridges, veneers and crowns.

Patient Review

I couldn't speak more highly of Mrs Gardiner and her staff. The professionalism and the TLC they have given me throughout all of my treatment.

I now have a lovely smile that I am proud to give.

From being a very nervous patient when I first came to Bellevue I am now confident to have work done on my teeth. This is due to Mrs. Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn being so welcoming and kind throughout all my treatment.

Crowns, Bridges, Veneers and Tooth Whitening.

Before

This lady wanted to renew her crowns and take the opportunity to re-align her teeth and improve her smile at the same time. However she did not want lengthy orthodontic treatment.

Our first step was to extract the upper right central incisor, as this tooth had been root filled in the past and was beginning to fail.

After

A temporary bridge was made, tooth whitening carried out on the lower (natural teeth) and then a permanent bridge, crowns and veneers constructed on the upper arch.

Patient Review

Thank you Mrs. Gardiner, Dawn and Amanda. I have just had extensive dental work but now have a lovely set of straight front teeth.

I am very pleased and can now smile with confidence.

Veneers and Composite Bonding

After

We built up the upper front teeth using composite and matched his existing teeth by introducing 'speckles' to give a natural look.

Crowns, Veneers and Tooth Whitening

Before
After

We carried out tooth whitening and improved this ladies smile by the use of veneers and crowns to match her whitened, natural teeth.

New Dentures, Veneers and Crowns

Before

We transformed this lady's smile by constructing new crowns and dentures for the upper jaw and veneers and a denture for the lower jaw.

After

As you can see our dentures look like natural teeth with a colour that is in harmony with the natural skin, giving a lovely bright smile.

New Bridges and Veneers after Teeth Whitening

Before

This lady had some missing teeth, some of her natural teeth were discoloured and others were covered with composite restorations which, over time, had lost their colour match.

After

The first stage in her treatment was to whiten her teeth and make temporaries.

These are her permanent restorations.

New Veneers and Dentures after Teeth Whitening

Before
After

This dramatic improvement required relatively simple treatment. After whitening the teeth we made some veneers for her top front teeth and new upper and lower dentures.

New Veneers and Teeth Whitening

Before

This young girl had broken both her upper front teeth and repaired (above) with white composite material many years ago.

After

Her teeth were re-aligned with a brace and then, after tooth whitening, we created 4 veneers to re-proportion and improve the appearance of her teeth.

Teeth Whitening using the Enlighten System

Before

This gentleman did not like his worn down upper and lower front teeth.

After

We built up the upper front teeth using composite and matched his existing teeth by introducing 'speckles' to give a natural look.

The lower front teeth were lengthened with Porcelain Veneers.

Teeth Whitening, Veneers and Dentures

Before

This gentleman's front teeth were worn down and, following tooth whitening, we built them up with veneers and replaced the missing teeth with dentures.

After

Tooth whitening should always be carried out first to ensure that any veneers, crowns or dentures match your natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening Veneers and Crowns

Before

The different height and colours of these teeth needed to be corrected in different ways. As before the first step is to return all the teeth to the same colour by whitening, in this case this was achieved by a home whitening system.

After

The acrylic temporary crowns and veneers gave a marked improvement.

The final stage involved cementing the permanent crowns and veneers, providing the natural tooth-like appearance that can only be obtained with porcelain.

Repair of a Fractured Tooth

Before

The first stage was to build up the lost tooth tissue with composite. Unfortunately composite stains and discolours easily. So it was decided to undertake tooth whitening before completing the restoration with a veneer.

After

The left central was also veneered, as the patient wanted a curved edge to the tooth.

Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Before

This patient desired a white 'Hollywood Style' so, after a course of Home Whitening we constructed 6 upper front veneers.

After

Not only has her smile improved but she no longer tries to hide her teeth and is generally more able to enjoy social situations without concern about her smile.

Teeth Whitening, Veneers and Bridges

Before

This patient had a wide space between the upper centrals (a diastema) and had retained the 'baby' canine/eye teeth.

After

To correct these we created two from veneers to cover the gap and two bridges to provide normal sized canine/eye teeth.

Patient Review

I am very nervous when it comes to visiting the dentist but wanted my teeth to look good for my wedding photos.

I had lots of work done including bridges and veneers, which look fantastic.

All the staff are friendly, patient and very kind and I am amazed at the results.

I can not thank Dr Gardiner enough for giving me my smile back.

Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Before

This young man had an accident when aged 12 causing damage to the upper front teeth. He underwent root canal treatment at the time but over the years the teeth have become increasingly discoloured.

After

The solution was to use veneers that our skilful technician carefully colour matched to the adjacent teeth and, when fitting, we used a cement that would block out the discoloured tooth.

Before
After

This lady's smile was improved by lengthening the upper right central incisor with a veneer and replacing the discoloured crown on the upper left central incisor with one that matched the veneer and her natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Before
After

Tooth whitening using the Enlighten System.

Upper left central incisor had been root filled in the past and had become discoloured.

Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Before
After

This lady was unhappy with her uneven front teeth. We created a more pleasing smile using 6 porcelain veneers carefully colour matched to her natural teeth.

Orthodontics, Teeth Whitening and Crowns

Before
After

Following fixed, orthodontic correction to move the right upper three into the line of her arch we created four crowns for the upper central teeth.

She was very pleased with the result and kindly wrote the following:

The service and care at Belle Vue dental practice is excellent!

I booked for a 'smile makeover' consultation appointment as I was unhappy how my 4 existing crowns were looking. They were old, discoloured and my gum had started to recede causing a grey line above one tooth.

Mrs Gardiner listened to all my concerns sympathetically, took photographs and moulds of my teeth, discussed options and followed up with a quote. I decided to bleach my teeth one month before replacing my old crowns to achieve a brighter overall smile. Mrs Gardiner supplied the bleach and trays that I wore for 1 hour every evening for around 2 weeks. I was supported throughout this process with good results.

I was really nervous the day I arrived at the surgery to have my old crowns drilled out and temporary crowns fitted. Mrs Gardiner and Dawn settled me in and talked me through what would happen and put my mind at rest. Within 5 minutes and being anesthetised (local) I couldn't feel a thing and all I had to cope with was the noise of the drill, which really wasn't that bad. Mrs Gardiner is so calm and reassuring I was confident I was in good hands whilst Dawn made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment.

I was so pleased with the temporary teeth that I wore for 2 weeks, they were a great shape and colour, no one even noticed I was having dental work done!

The day I had my new crowns fitted was such a wonderful feeling and relief. I am so pleased with my new smile which is much brighter and looks more natural. I would thoroughly recommend investing in your smile if you are unhappy as it not only looks really great on the outside but you feel really great on the inside too. I feel much more confident when I smile and love seeing my teeth in photos now!

Finally, I received an excellent after care service from Mrs Gardiner and her team to ensure the dental work was a success and also posed for 'after' photos to complete the process.

Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Before

This patient did not like the uneven edges or the discoloured composites on her front teeth.

After

To correct both problems we constructed 6 upper front veneers.

Teeth Whitening, Veneers and Crowns

Before

This patient wanted a uniform tooth colour and an even smile. Tooth whitening brought her natural teeth to their correct uniform colour.

After

When replacing her veneers and crowns that had been made separately (with different colours, hues and tones) we were able to provide a uniform appearance that matched her natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening, Veneers and a Bridge

Before
After

Correcting the various colours of this lady's smile required a combination of renewing a bridge on the upper left and constructing new crowns and veneers on the upper right.

Veneers to eliminate Tooth Crowding

Before

This lady fractured the veneer on her upper left central tooth. She took the opportunity of its' renewal to re-align and eliminate the crowding of her upper teeth with veneers.

After

As you can see she improved the colour of her teeth at the same time.

Teeth Whitening and replacing a Veneer

Before

The central upper right tooth had been root filled, this led to some gum shrinkage that created a dark area at the margin of the veneer. The veneer appears dark due to tooth darkening beneath it showing through.

After

We constructed a new veneer that matched perfectly with the veneer on the new upper left central tooth and covered the area of gum shrinkage. Using the correct cement we were able to ensure that the dark, underlying tooth colour did not show through.

Eliminating Crowding

Before

The upper front teeth were slightly crowded, showed discolouration and had an uneven edge.

After

After a course of Home Whitening we constructed veneers on her four upper front teeth.

This treatment gave a very pleasing smile.

Fillings, Teeth Whitening and Dentures

Before
After

The teeth were restored using composite white fillings followed by tooth whitening.

Finally upper and lower chrome-cobalt dentures were made to fill the gaps.

Patient Review

Very Nervous : At first but soon felt at ease, had major work done through to new dentures.

Would highly recommend this surgery/practice to anyone.
