Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you have teeth that are discoloured, cracked, chipped, crooked or missing? 

At Dental on York, we have helped many patients achieve their dream smile through a smile makeover. This is a personalised treatment plan that may consist of one or several cosmetic dental treatments. In this article, we discuss what some of these techniques are, and how we can help you achieve your dream smile. 

Smile Makeover Techniques

There are many factors taken into consideration when planning your smile makeover. Your cosmetic dentist will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that will be most effective in helping you reach your goals. Below are some examples of both the simple and complex smile makeover techniques.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth can become stained over time as a result of several factors. These can include age, smoking and drinking lots of tea and coffee, for example. Teeth whitening is a popular and effective way to lighten and brighten your smile. At Dental on York, we offer two treatment options for teeth whitening: 

  • In-chair teeth whitening
  • At-home teeth whitening

Both treatments can help you achieve a smile that is up to several shades lighter. The best type of teeth whitening treatment for you will depend on your smile goals, lifestyle and budget. 

Cosmetic Bonding 

If you have a tooth/teeth with small chips, cracks or damage as a result of decay, cosmetic bonding might be a suitable treatment for you. Cosmetic bonding involves the application of a composite resin onto your tooth. It is then moulded and polished to blend in with your surrounding tooth.

Cosmetic bonding is also effective at covering up discolouration, as well as filling minor gaps between your teeth. So, it could be that cosmetic bonding is the only treatment you need for your smile makeover! 


Do you have a tooth that is extensively damaged or worn? If so, a dental crown may be the answer to improving your smile. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that ‘caps’ your tooth, restoring its shape, size, colour and protecting it too. 

The procedure for getting a crown normally takes place over two appointments. Once your dental crown is complete, it should look, feel and function like a normal tooth! 


If you have a missing tooth, not only may it be challenging to eat and speak, but it may also make you avoid smiling. A dental bridge is a custom-made prosthetic device used to fill a gap left by one or more missing teeth. It is attached to your surrounding teeth with a crown and cemented into place. A dental bridge can allow you to eat, speak and smile with confidence. 

There are a few different types of dental bridges. The type you may need would depend on your specific smile makeover treatment plan. 

Porcelain Veneers

Is the appearance of your smile getting you down? Whether it be due to the size, shape or colour of your teeth, or wear or damage, porcelain veneers can deliver the ultimate smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. 

The procedure for getting porcelain veneers is carried out over a few appointments. Your dentist will work closely with you to customise your veneers to help you achieve your smile goals.
