Smile Makeover | What are the Treatments & What Does it Cost?

Smile makeovers are growing in popularity as a way to address multiple concerns with one treatment plan. If you are unhappy with your smile and would like to make small aesthetic changes, you could be an ideal candidate for this treatment plan.

The smile makeover is unique because it is flexible and adaptable to every patient. This means we can take into consideration things like your budget, your time limitations and your personal preferences when it comes to designing your plan.

In this guide, we’re exploring the different treatments available as part of your smile makeover and how much these will cost. This will help you to develop a better understanding of the overall cost of your treatment.



Teeth straightening is often the backbone of the smile makeover plan. This sets the stage for the restoration, making sure that you have perfectly aligned teeth before moving forward with any other treatments.

You might find that other issues don’t bother you as much once you have addressed your alignment issues. However, some patients find that orthodontics isn’t enough to achieve their goals and there is still more to do at the end of the treatment plan.

We commonly use Invisalign for the orthodontic portion of our treatment plans as this is commonly requested by patients. Invisalign is an invisible and removable aligner system that will blend seamlessly with your lifestyle.

How much does it cost: Invisalign aligners typically start at around £2000 per arch

Teeth whitening

Next up, we address the colour of your teeth. Your teeth are not solid structures but are more porous, like a sponge. This means that they absorb stains throughout your life. The only way to remove these deep-set stains is with professional teeth whitening.

Professional teeth whitening can be completed at home using custom-made trays, or you can visit the practice for an in-chair treatment that is accelerated with the use of a bright light. You could also have a treatment that includes a combination of the two.

Teeth whitening can address stains from food, drink and lifestyle habits such as smoking. If you have discoloration that is the result of damage or decay, teeth whitening won’t be effective and you will need to try a different approach.

How much does it cost: Teeth whitening prices start at around £200 per treatment. More extensive staining may cost more and take longer.

Composite bonding

To put the finishing touches on your smile and address any final imperfections, we can use composite bonding. This is a cost-effective treatment that can be used to address the small issues with your smile that might be holding you back.

A resin is applied directly to the tooth and then shaped. We then set the resin with a UV light before shaping and polishing it to perfection. This treatment can be used on a single tooth or on multiple teeth, depending on your needs.

Composite bonding is commonly used to address small gaps, chips, cracks, thinning enamel and discolouration that cannot be fixed with teeth whitening.

How much does it cost: The average cost of this treatment is around £200 to £300 per tooth, depending on the amount of resin required.

Putting it all together

Putting it all together

The beauty of the smile makeover is that you can choose the treatments that are right for you. Most patients start with orthodontics and then decide which treatments to add on once they have their teeth in perfect alignment. Others will start small, choosing to whiten their teeth or address small imperfections with composite bonding before they decide to invest further.

If you’re ready to start your smile makeover journey, the first step is to arrange a consultation. This is your opportunity to ask questions and find out which treatments are available to you. You can also start to discuss budgets and timescales to see if you have realistic expectations about what can be achieved.

Remember that a smile makeover should be completely flexible to your needs and requirements. So if you’re unhappy with any part of your smile, you don’t have to live with it. Get in touch with our team today to learn more about the smile makeover treatment plan.
