Start the New Year with a Smile - Five Ways to Restore and Improve Your Teeth

If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, you might be looking for ways to improve your smile. From braces and veneers to whitening and dental implants, there’s a whole host of dental treatments that can make you proud of your pearly whites.

At Dentalia, we’re experts in making teeth look fantastic. That’s why we’ve put our heads together to come up with the top five ways you can restore and improve your teeth, helping you start the new year with a smile.

Smile makeover

When it comes to a smile makeover, your dentist will take a holistic approach and look at the different ways they can make your teeth look better. This may include using a combination of veneers, tooth whitening, gum contouring and the insertion of porcelain crowns and bridges. It could also incorporate the use of gentle facial aesthetics to perfectly accentuate the work you have had done on your teeth. Each patient’s wants and needs are different, which is why we’d always recommend booking in for a smile makeover consultation in the first instance.

Braces and clear retainers

These days, there’s no need to suffer wonky teeth or wear bulky metal braces. There are a whole range of invisible braces such as Invisalign, that offer convenient, discreet tooth straightening. Using clear retainers like Invisalign can straighten your teeth in a matter of months, while giving you the confidence to smile freely.


Veneers are shells of tooth coloured porcelain that sit over your existing teeth that may be chipped or discoloured. They are often used to improve the shape and overall positioning of your teeth, giving you a fuller smile. Dental veneers that are well looked after can last for many years, offering excellent value for money. Furthermore, they are often very quick to install.

Teeth Whitening

If you want a whiter smile, investing in professional teeth whitening is the safest, most effective way of achieving one. Whether it’s a specialist take away kit or an in-dentist treatment, you can erase stains, make your teeth whiter and give yourself a smile you’re proud of - quickly and easily.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a fantastic option if you have one or more missing teeth. Each one is made from a small post which has a ceramic or porcelain tooth attached to the top, which is then inserted into the jaw bone in place of the missing tooth.

The healing phase for dental implants is around six to twelve weeks, so they are a slightly more invasive option than the other smile makeover methods listed above. Despite this, they offer a long-lasting, attractive option for improving your smile.

If you’re looking to start the new year off with a brand-new smile, why not contact our expert team today?
