One of the first things that a person notices about another person is their smile. With Valentine’s Day upon us, make sure to impress your loved one by getting a smile makeover. And if you don’t have someone to impress, getting a smile makeover will greatly improve your odds of finding your special one.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is the process of improving a person’s smile by using cosmetic dentistry procedures. The duration and complexity of the process depends on the requirement of the patient and it includes procedures like teeth whitening, white fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges or dental caps.
What can a smile makeover do for you?
Here is a list of problems that smile makeover can help overcome:
- Tooth colour –the requirement for white teeth is one of the most common reasons why people visit the dentist. Whether you have discoloured teeth as a result of ageing, smoking or other unhealthy habits, your problem can be fixed in a timely manner.
- Teeth alignment – by using braces you can align and strengthen your teeth
- Spacing and missing teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Unshapely face – by using cosmetic dentistry procedures you can now have fuller lips or cheeks.
In order to get a smile makeover, you will need to make an appointment with your dentist. There you can talk about what you wish to accomplish and they will explain to you the procedures that will help you.
By using advanced computer imaging, your dentist will be able to show you how your teeth will look like after the procedure. That means you will be able to order the perfect set of teeth, just the way you want them.
Gone are the days when cosmetic dentistry procedures were reserved only for the rich and famous. So what are you waiting for? Go get your smile makeover today at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Ealing!

As the days and nights grow ever darker and colder, there’s perhaps one blessing for the image conscious. As we pack away our skimpy summer clothing, we can celebrate a few months of freedom from worrying about golden tans and toned bodies. However, unfortunately not all imperfections can be hidden under chunky knitwear, and winter can be the ideal time to start thinking about your teeth again. Instead of praying for a snow day, why not make your own ‘white Christmas’ with a one hour smile makeover?
Treat yourself to white teeth this Christmas
This quick makeover uses cosmetic bonding, the application of a composite resin to your teeth. This resin comes in a natural tooth colour and can treat a vast number of imperfections including chipped or crooked teeth, gaps, and discolouration. If you’ve got one or two stained teeth, or your whole set is more yellow than you’d like, then just one visit to the Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hanwell could be all it takes to give you a gleaming smile.
The procedure couldn’t be simpler
During your visit, which should not take longer than an hour, the special resin is simply bonded to your tooth or teeth. And because the teeth themselves don’t need to be prepared or shaped, there’s usually no need for anaesthetic. This whitening technique is not only a science, it’s also an art. At our Ealing clinic, Dr Sunita Verma combines the training and knowledge of a dental professional with the artistic judgement of a make-up artist. The result is a natural-looking white smile that will really make you stand out this winter. And, with the correct care, your new bright smile could see you through the next ten Christmases!

Snuggling inside in the dark, cold winter months is something many people look forward to. The crisp air and whiteness of winter mornings can be breath-taking. There is something romantic about winter walks, bonfire night, wrapping up when it is cold outside and so it isn’t surprising that winter weddings are so popular.

Looking at pictures or movies featuring some of today’s Hollywood stars, you’ll notice again and again that seemingly perfect teeth are apparently the norm. How can it be that huge film stars can achieve such dazzling, perfect smiles? However they achieve it, it seems like there’s no way for the rest of us to match such faultless pearly whites. But this isn’t the case, as you too can achieve a ‘Hollywood smile’ thanks to Sparkle Dental Boutique which can offer crowns, bridges, braces, tooth whitening and veneers in order to achieve a smile worthy of Hollywood.
What is involved in a Hollywood smile?
Veneers are very thin shells of material which fit over your teeth, in much the same way that false fingernails fit onto your nails. Porcelain is used to make the veneers for Sparkle Dental Boutique, as it is a very strong material – with proper dental care, porcelain veneers can last ten to fifteen years – and it can easily be made to appear the correct shade. Veneers are a fantastic way to achieve perfect Hollywood teeth. In other words, veneers are designed to the shade that you want your teeth to appear, and then stuck onto the surfaces of teeth. You may decide to have teeth whitening, or minor orthodontic treatment, or possible facial rejuvenation treatment. During the consultation we can look at what you want to achieve and then come up with a dental plan so we can achieve the results you are looking for. This could be a mix of cosmetic dentistry and facial fillers to give both the face and teeth a boost.
How can I get a Hollywood smile?
At Sparkle Dental Boutique near Ealing we offer an initial consultation where yourself and the Sparkle team can look at your teeth and talk about what you would like to look like at the end of the treatment. You may want to boost your looks generally to look like your movie heroes or it may be for a special occasion, either way, contact us today for more information.

Weddings are always special, not just for the happy couple but for the rest of the family and friends who are invited along too. Weddings should be happy days, filled with smiles which will be preserved for the years to come in photos so that the big day won’t be forgotten. So wouldn’t it be a shame if you felt self-conscious about your smile on the day, and felt that you couldn’t should how happiness for fear of being embarrassed? Help is at hand at Sparkle Dental Boutique however, where several different treatments are available to help you feel at your most confident about your teeth on the big day.
What treatments are available?
Several different treatments are offered at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hounslow, and the treatment which will be best for you depends on your needs and how long you are available to have treatment for before the day itself. For example, if you feel self-conscious about protruding teeth or gaps in teeth, even problems like this can be fixed using the 6 Month Smile treatments. This uses special braces made of transparent wires and brackets – meaning that even while you’re receiving treatment, it will hardly be noticeable – to help move your teeth into a different position to give you a more uniform smile. By focussing only on the teeth that show when you smile, this treatment is much quicker than other braces treatments, only taking six months.
What if I don’t have six months until the wedding?
For less radical changes, other treatments are available. Dental crowns can help strengthen and repair chipped or broken teeth, helping your smile to look as good as possible by fitting over your teeth. Veneers are another option. They can be made to the shade you wish, and stuck onto your teeth to give the appearance of a flawless smile. Call Sparkle Dental Boutique to discuss your needs and find which treatments would be best for you.

Summer is upon us, and as the August bank holiday soon rolls around, it means that it’s once again time for Europe’s largest street festival – the Notting Hill Carnival. One of the most exciting annual events in any UK city, the Carnival is always a riot of colours, smells and sights – so it would be a shame to feel self-conscious about your own appearance at the festival. However, many smile treatments are available at Sparkle Dental Boutique to help your teeth shine as brightly as anything else in the Carnival! One treatment is porcelain veneers, designed to help your teeth look their best.
What are veneers and how can they help?
Veneers are available at the Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hanwell. They are often said to be an equivalent for false fingernails for your teeth. They are stuck over the teeth to help them look better, and are usually made of porcelain as this is a very strong, durable material which can easily made to look the right shade. Veneers can help with several cosmetic problems with teeth, stained teeth can be covered by veneers, to help them appear whiter, and small gaps between teeth can appear closed, thanks to the use of veneers. Even some cases of damaged or crooked teeth can be helped with veneers, by covering the affected areas with veneers designed to be the appropriate shade. With good oral hygiene, porcelain veneers can last up to ten years.
How are veneers fitted?
At the first appointment, your teeth are very carefully shaped to help the veneers fit. A mould of your teeth will be taken with special dental ‘putty’. While your veneers are being made from the mould, you’ll be given temporary veneers so you can see how they feel and look. At the second appointment, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned, and the veneers sealed in place to help your smile look brand new!

Loose dentures are a burden to many. Ill-fitting dentures rub the gums and cause sores, swelling and even bone degeneration. After time this continual wearing will mean you have to replace your dentures, which will cost you extra money on top of your initial treatment each time.
What can be done about my loose dentures?
Many people attempt to stabilise loose dentures with fixatives or pastes, none of which provide any long-term effect. However, patients now have the option of dental implants for their loose dentures, which not only keep the dentures in place but also prevent bone degeneration.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone. Once these posts have fused with the bone to form a secure foundation a denture, crown or bridge can be attached depending on the level of tooth loss you have suffered.
If you wear dentures and would like stabilisation several dental implants will be strategically placed in the mouth, which will then be attached to the denture to keep them firmly in place.
What are the benefits of dental implants for denture wearers?
- Added stability-dental implants enable patients to laugh, smile and eat with the complete confidence that their dentures will stay in place. Dental implant treatment is often a life-changing procedure; enabling patients to find the confidence they have lost and enjoy the foods they couldn’t eat.
- Prevents bone degeneration-dentures rub the gums and the bone underneath, leading to bone degeneration, which causes the bone to recede. After time this will mean the dentures needs replacing and the problem will continue as long as the person is wearing loose dentures. With dental implants not only is bone degeneration prevented, the bone is encouraged to bond and grow, so you will be left with a healthy jawbone.
If you are interested in having dental implants for the stabilisation of your dentures please call the practice today. We provide services for patients near Kew and throughout the UK.
