Last medically reviewed by Dr Sam Jethwa: December 21, 2020
Your smile is the first thing someone notices about you.
However, if you have oral issues that affect the look of your smile, you may not feel as comfortable or self-confident.
Here at the Bespoke Smile, we know that every smile is different, and we believe that treating those smiles should be just as unique.
Our treatments are tailored to the individual and designed to combat a wide range of dental issues and concerns.
So, whatever your oral requirements, we can restore your perfect and bespoke smile.
What teeth problems can affect your smile?
A number of oral issues can affect the look of your smile:
- Worn, crooked, uneven teeth
- Gappy smiles
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Malocclusions such as underbite, overbite or crossbite
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Missing teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Gum recession
- Loose teeth
There are a number of cosmetic solutions that can help recreate your smile by improving appearance, function and strength of your mouth’s structure.
See our before and after gallery here.
Cosmetic solutions to smile problems:
1. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding provides a solution to decayed, chipped, stained or broken teeth.
Usually made of composite resin, they match the colour and feel of the teeth, therefore can restore the aesthetics and strength of your teeth.
The resin used to bond to your teeth can be shaped and polished in order to match the desired shape of your teeth.
Dental bonding can be completed within a single visit as there is minimal preparation and it is a pain-free procedure.
If your teeth are cracked or fractured, then dental bonding can protect the damaged teeth and improve your oral health
Veneers are known as one of the quickest and most durable ways to transform your smile.
Here at the Bespoke Smile, our ultra-thin porcelain veneers are tailored and shaped to your teeth in a minimally-invasive procedure.
A dental veneer will fit over the front surface of your teeth for a gleaming and white smile.
They can solve problems like uneven, gappy, worn and crooked teeth, as well as cover stains and discolouration.
Known for their durability, not only do veneers typically last a lifetime, but they can restore the function and structure of your mouth and teeth.
Other benefits of dental veneers include:
- Natural-looking smile
- Do not harm the gums
- They do not stain
- Non-invasive procedure
- Long-lasting results
- Restored self-confidence

Fixed braces are attached permanently to your teeth, and are adjusted incrementally over a number of dental visits.
Clear aligners, on the other hand, are removable and practically invisible and are best suited to minor orthodontic issues.
Both types of braces are effective and long-term solutions to straightening your teeth and restoring your self-confidence.
The type of brace treatment you receive will depend on your oral issue and the advice given by our dental specialists.
- Assessment and planning
- Fitting your braces
- Aligning your teeth and review visits
- Review and maintenance of your smile
If you have missing teeth as a result of periodontal disease, trauma or injury, the most durable and functional solution to gaps in your smile is dental implants.
Leaving gaps in your mouth untreated can lead to a breakdown in the mouth’s structure as teeth either side of the gap move into space.
This can cause issues with bite, chewing function and even speech.
Dental implants, unlike removable dentures, are fixed to your jawbone and support a prosthetic tooth to restore a natural-looking and strong smile.
Implants are used to replace a single tooth as well as replacing multiple teeth.
Advantages of dental implants:
- Implants look and feel like a natural tooth
- Fixed and durable tooth replacement option
- Support your jaw and facial structure
- Long-lasting and cost-effective
- Restores self-confidence
- Easy maintenance
