Smile Makeovers.

Your perfect smile.

A smile makeover is exactly as it sounds. It’s a complete transformation of your teeth and smile using advanced, safe and comprehensive multidisciplinary treatments to realise your ideal vision.

A smile goes a long way, and at Shields we go further to make it perfect, because we know how much your ideal smile can boost your confidence and transform those important first impressions. You’ll feel better about yourself, and through your smile that will just shine through for others to see.

Here at Shields we’ll do exactly what it takes to make this happen, but because the perfect smile depends on the individual, no one treatment will be the same.



This transformation could well be a memorable milestone in your life, and at Shields we know how important it is. But it needn’t in any way be daunting, so you’ll be glad to know that we’ll begin with an informal chat about what you want to achieve, and how to get there.

We’ll get to know you, your habits, your health and your diet – as we want to create a smile that lasts. When it comes to discussing your ideal smile, we’ll ask you to bring in some pictures of your ‘smile heroes’ – people or celebrities who possess the smile you would like. As we want something that is achievable, we’ll ask you to concentrate or those who have a similar shaped face to yours. So we know that your vision is achievable and suitable for your bone structure, face, and overall physical make-up. Because your vision will be unique to you.

Your new


We’re seeking perfection here, so your perfect smile is planned  through a combination of treatments that will require thorough preparation involving several visits. In this time we’ll take x-rays and photos and use other imaging techniques available to get an accurate impression of how you’ll look, perhaps even showing you the final result in wax before treatment begins.

The results will tell us all the important details about your face symmetry, your facial tone, and your teeth’s colour and shape. Round, square and anything in between, there are different shapes of smiles, but we’ll soon have a mock-up of the perfect one for you. This will be the template for your new look.

Perfecting your


We will then begin treatment and any surgery. Perfecting your smile and fixing discolouration, misalignment, proportional issues, missing or broken teeth, gaps, other spacing issues, and then looking at if the gums are misshapen or if you are prone to a ‘gummy smile’. Procedures could involve all, or some of the following”

  • Dental Crowns
  • Veneers
  • Implants
  • Gum Contouring
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Composite Bonding

Regardless of how your teeth look today, we will do everything in our power to improve your smile using – if necessary – the broad and complete skill set available at Shields.



We don’t want to exaggerate but many of our smile makeover patients have described this as life-changing, and we’re there for the new chapter in your life. So if any adjustments or tweaks are needed, as well as for our after care advice, we’re here to complete the journey.
