Exclusive Smile Makeovers That Aren’t Just For Celebrities

Everyone’s heard of makeovers for your look.  A new haircut, a new wardrobe and you’re good to go.  But what about your mouth?  Even the best makeover can’t address the wear and tear on your teeth, and no amount of applying your favourite cosmetics can cover up a crooked smile.  So why stop your makeover at a new set of clothes when more people than ever are continuing their transformations with a new set of teeth and the ultimate photo finish.  Statistics show that many of us dislike our teeth so much so that we run from the gaze of the camera.  We all make judgements on first impressions, and unfortunately for a lot of people, your smile is what is often scrutinised first.  These days smile makeovers are not just for the rich and famous – although you may feel just like an A Lister strolling around Acton when you unveil your new look.  Smile makeovers are all about using what’s there and reworking it to give you a stunning new mouth.

What kind of smile is right for you?

That’s the beauty of smile makeovers.  Your dentist will help you construct your own unique smile, just the way you want it – and if you’re not entirely sure, your surgery will give you all the advice you need to craft the look you crave.  Perhaps you’re thinking about an entire reconstruction, or maybe just the odd tweak here and there to give you that great finish.  Whether it’s a set of porcelain veneers or simply some tooth whitening, whatever your intentions the smile makeover will leave you feeling full of confidence.

Sparkle Dental are here to add a little ‘sparkle’ to your smile

Never run from that camera again, face it head on and build some happy memories that you will now be able to look back on with pride. Speak to our team today to learn more about smile makeovers.

Winning WAG smile

The X Factor judge and pop star was strides ahead of the other WAGS with her beaming smile winning her more than 70 percent of the votes. The survey conducted for National Smile Month by the British Dental Health Foundation and power toothbrush maker Oral B asked more than 1000 people to vote for the WAG with the best smile and the one with the worst.

LA based Victoria Beckham’s pout proved to be the least popular of the WAGs followed by new mum Colleen Rooney.

Celebrities with Dental Phobia

TV Presenter Kelly Osbourne has revealed her dental phobia on her Twitter page.

The daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne tweeted “I have to go get my fillings today and the fear is really kicking in. I need to get over this fear of the dentist but I can’t”. 

Kelly is not alone in her phobia, as other celebrities such as Robert De Niro are known to be frightened of the dental chair.

A recent survey conducted by the British Dental Health Foundation discovered that one of four people do not visit a dentist due to dental phobia.

Sunita Verma from Sparkle Dental Boutique Hanwell says “Many people are still frightened of seeing a dentist and this is such a great shame as dental practices have changed enormously. The great news is that at Sparkle Dental Boutique there are many dental distractions within the practice which make your dental visit easy, comfortable and relaxed. Our aim is to make your dental check up a routine part of your daily life.”

Bling, Bling Your Smile and Sparkle!

 

In recent times, bling has become synonymous with the values of playing hard, looking good and lapping up the finest – the sassy/gaudy style, the Bentley, the Jacuzzi, the Dom Perignon, the fur coat, the first class ticket, the Gucci, the Prada, the Rolex, and so on.

We all love a bit of bling whether it be chains, rings, bracelets, watches…the list goes on…but a bit of bling that will remain timeless and forever in style is your smile! A blinging smile helps to build confidence, psychologically and socially – and may help your love life too!

In a recent survey, people said that if money were no object, half of them would whiten their teeth and one in three would straighten their teeth for that perfect Hollywood bling smile.

Dr Sunita Verma from Sparkle Dental Boutique, Ealing says, `Patients are sometimes surprised to find that to have a blinging smile is more affordable than they may have thought. Patients can spread payment for treatment over a period of 12 – 60 months. For example, for treatment costing £2,000.00 over 36 months, the cost is about £2.00 per day – less than a cup of coffee.’

A blinging smile can be achieved by replacing unsightly silver amalgam fillings with white fillings; tooth whitening to give your discoloured teeth that healthy brightness; braces to bring your crooked teeth gently into perfect alignment and a smile makeover using porcelain veneers or crowns to give you the ultimate bling smile!

Did you know that James Bond star Daniel Craig lost two teeth whilst making Casino Royale?

So what can you do if you happen to lose a tooth?

Dr Sunita Verma from Sparkle Dental Boutique, Brentford says `Missing teeth are sometimes unsightly and can also affect your appearance. Gaps left by a missing tooth can also mean that a greater strain is put on the teeth at either side. Gaps can also affect your “bite” as the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.”

If you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth, there are many ways in which the gaps can be closed to give you a beautiful, healthy smile:

  • Partial denture – where you have a false tooth or teeth which are removable attached to a acrylic or metal plate
  • Fixed bridge – where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth
  • Implant – where a titanium metal rod is placed into the jawbone. It is used to support one or more false teeth
