It’s Never Too Late To Change Your Smile

Your smile is important, it is the first thing that people notice about you and it gives you confidence in everything you do.

It’s never too late to change your smile. If there is anything that irritates you – discoloured, chipped or crooked teeth or gaps in your smile- then modern dentistry can help. There are many ways to improve your smile.


Our teeth naturally darken as we get older, partly as a result of all the staining foods and drinks over the years but partly as a result of having older teeth.

Nobody needs to put up with a darker smile. Whitening is very reliable, doesn’t harm the teeth and works equally well at any age.


If you have always wished your teeth were straighter or if you have noticed previously straight teeth  starting to wander then braces will work equally well at any age. Now more than 50% of braces are used in adults with many adults choosing a near invisible option like clear aligners.

Dental Implants

If you are missing a tooth it is crucial that you plan for it’s replacement. A missing tooth can ruin the appearance of your smile and can result in overloading of your remaining teeth increasing future problems.

Missing teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges or removable dentures to suit your circumstances.

Veneers and Crowns

Worn and chipped front teeth can be rejuvenated with veneers or bonding and tired crowns with unsightly black margined at the gum line can be improved with modern  all-ceramic crowns.

Key takeaways:

  • Cosmetic dental treatments work equally well at any age. If your are worried that your smile is looking tired, or if you have always wished for a better smile, we can help.
  • Whitening gives a quick and easy confidence boost and takes years off your smile.
  • You can go for white fillings to replace silver fillings — a real improvement if you are showing silver in your smile.

“If you’re tired of seeing your silver fillings and wondering what others think, you can talk to your dentist about removing them.”
