New year, new smile – how to get the smile of your dreams!

Last year, the self-care trend took off, but it wasn’t all fancy mud masks and Prosecco. This year you could choose to invest more heavily in yourself with a complete smile makeover. The results of these transformations can be dramatic and can boost your confidence for years to come!

You could look back on 2020 as the year you started on your journey to your dream smile! So you know what to expect, we’ll walk you through a few of our dental treatments that may be used to create a dazzling smile for you.


Invisalign is one of the world’s most trusted brands for clear (almost invisible) adult braces. The clear aligner system can close gaps, crowding, and generally straighten your smile. Invisalign is a popular choice because the clear aligners are almost invisible — no one will know you’re wearing them!

On top of that Invisalign clear aligners don’t require regular trips to the dentist and are easy to clean. Invisalign’s clear aligner system can typically give you a straight smile in about 12 months. Plus, you can remove the alignment trays to clean them, to eat, to brush, and to perform normal regular activities (like playing an instrument or sport).

Dental implants

Dental implants are a popular dental solution to fill any gaps because they feel almost indistinguishable from real teeth. The reason dental implants feel so real is largely because of the process involved: a titanium fixture bonds with your jaw and then a polished crown is fixed on top. The bonding of the fixture to your jaw is how and why a dental implant feels more like a real tooth.

If you’ve suffered an injury or had to have a tooth removed then a dental implant could be a perfect solution. During your initial smile makeover consultation we’ll discuss if a dental implant could be right for you.

Porcelain, ceramic, or resin veneers are essentially caps or tips that adhere to your normal teeth. Before deciding if this option is right for you, it’s important to make sure you’ll be happy with your smile afterwards. Veneers typically last for 5 to 10 years or longer — so be sure this is a procedure you want before you commit to it.

Also, just as a quick bit of advice, tell your dentist if you’re planning any plastic surgery or lip injections. The reason is that these types of procedures may cause shadows over your teeth making them appear more grey. During your consultation, our experts will walk you through all of the options, and make a specific recommendation based on your lifestyle and planned cosmetic procedures.

Teeth whitening

A quick, simple method of improving your smile is to choose a professional teeth whitening treatment. The regular consumption of tea or coffee can lead to your teeth staining over time, even if you brush twice a day!

You can easily enjoy a brighter smile in just a few days with our peroxide-based teeth whitening treatments. Our treatments are safe and will provide you with reliable results without sacrificing the health or safety of your teeth.


Be aware there are some dangers of teeth whitening kits sold over the counter including high acidity and too much peroxide that may cause chemical burns, permanent scarring and even tooth loss. That’s why it’s always best to seek a professional dentist for any teeth whitening treatments.

Our teeth whitening treatment will provide you with high-quality gels and custom fitted trays to give you safe, reliable results time after time.
