This can involve replacing missing teeth, restoring broken teeth, straightening crooked teeth, whitening teeth or improving the shapes of your teeth.
A cosmetic smile makeover is as individual as you are. It doesn’t have to be extreme, although sometimes it can be. It may be a same day smile makeover, or you may want to take more time.
“ Since having my treatment done the benefits I have felt have been enormous. Not only do my new implants and crown look great and seamlessly blend in with my other (wonderfully straightened) teeth, but the difference I have with eating has changed my life!”
“I was very impressed with your attention to detail and the way all of your staff were both helpful and re-assuring”
How do we complete a smile makeover?
To make sure we understand what you would like and what would work in your mouth we will start by taking a series of photos. Smile imaging can help us understand what is possible and also what you are looking for. We will often then make a 3D model of your teeth to plan what changes will work best for you. Any designs made here we can also ‘mock up’ in your actual mouth, so you can get a feel for your new smile. We will spend time to make sure that it really is the smile you want.
Our promises to you
As one of only 2 dentists in Scotland to be Accredited by The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentists, you can be assured that your treatment at No9 with Peter Buchan will be planned and executed to the highest standards. Working with an award-winning team and technician you can be assured of excellence at every stage of your treatment.
Different types of makeover
To change your smile we can use invisible braces to move your teeth, or we can change their shapes using ceramic crowns or veneers. If the change in shape is fairly small we can also make composite veneers using white filling material. Missing teeth can be replaced using dental implants or bridges.
You will have time to discuss treatments with more than one member of our team. While our dentist cannot make a decision for you he can advise of any pros and cons of different treatments, allowing you to make as informed a decision as possible.
Your treatment plan will be completely individual and so therefore will be the price. We do have a price list, so that you can have an idea of the costs for some treatments. You will always be given as many options as we feel are possible. Sometimes you may not need as much work as you think to achieve the look you are after. We also provide interest free and longer term low-interest finance options.
The honest answer to this is no! However many people suffer from dental phobia, or a milder anxiety that there will be some pain involved. We do understand that dental fear and anxiety are very real and we will work with you to help you overcome this if it is an issue for you. Patients we have worked with in this situation have always commented afterwards how amazed they have been that there has been no pain involved. If you have any concerns about this we will be happy to take the time to discuss these with you.
While a smile makeover is a cosmetic dental treatment your oral health is always our primary concern. We will advise you on long term dental hygiene and your dentist will carefully help you weigh up your long term health if you are considering preparing or extracting any teeth. We will not encourage any ‘quick fix’ which may cause you problems in the future. We will always treat you to create the heathiest mouth for your long-term health, even if your concerns are more cosmetic.
We have been winners of prestigieous awards in the past, and here are a few of them.
