What is a smile makeover? 

A smile makeover is a precisely tailored set of dental procedures designed to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. It's about creating a smile that is not only visually stunning but also feels entirely natural.

At Dee Dental, we offer customised smile makeover packages to cater to your unique needs, combining multiple treatments to enhance your oral health and aesthetic appearance. 

What is included in smile makeover?

A smile makeover encompasses a range of treatments, each serving a specific purpose. These can include the following: 

Dental implants 

Dental implants are not just a solution to replace missing teeth; they are a gateway to restoring your confidence. If you've ever felt self-conscious about the gaps in your smile, an implant can serve as a remarkable transformation. 

What sets dental implants apart is their ability to replicate not only the appearance but also the function of a natural tooth.

With dental implants, you’re regaining a complete, functional smile that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth. It's a profound boost to your self-esteem and an investment in a confident, worry-free future.

Teeth whitening 

This procedure enhances the overall brightness of your smile. We are an Enlighten Teeth Whitening Regional Centre of Excellence offering the most effective whitening treatment for those who desire a bright, white smile that lasts.

Better yet, our Enlighten treatment can be done from the comfort of your own home, with only a couple of dental visits needed throughout the whole procedure! 

We also offer Boutique teeth whitening to give our patients a choice of professional whitening options. 


Invisalign, a revolutionary tooth straightening solution, features custom-made clear plastic aligners that gently and gradually guide your teeth into their ideal positions, all with minimal discomfort. 

When choosing Invisalign as part of your smile makeover, you will be in the capable hands of our principal dentist, Dr. Dinah Naasan, who boasts great experience in adult orthodontics.

With Invisalign treatment, adults can straighten their teeth comfortably, discreetly, and effectively, all in a short space of time.

Veneers and crowns 

A dental crown is a versatile solution for addressing various dental issues. It not only acts as a protective "cap" for damaged teeth but also plays a crucial role in enhancing their appearance, shape, and alignment. 

In some cases, crowns are placed on top of dental implants to recreate a natural tooth's shape and function. 

We offer a range of crown materials, including gold, metal alloys, acrylic, and ceramic. We recommend EMAX (ceramic) alloys, particularly for posterior teeth, as they are known for their exceptional strength and durability.

Gum contouring 

If you're self-conscious about your gumline or feel your teeth appear too small, gum contouring can expose more of your teeth.

Gum contouring, also known as gingival sculpting or gingivoplasty, can help re-sculpt your gum line. It is a relatively quick and straightforward procedure that can drastically improve the appearance of your smile, it works by removing the gum line to expose more of the tooth so great if you feel like your teeth are small.

Who is an ideal candidate for a smile makeover? 

At Dee Dental, we prioritise a thorough evaluation to ensure each patient's unique needs and expectations are met through our bespoke smile makeover service.

Here are the key factors that help us identify the perfect candidate for a smile makeover: 

1. Dental Health: A strong foundation of good dental health is paramount. Before committing into any cosmetic enhancements, it's important that your teeth and gums are in good condition.

Any underlying dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, or structural problems, should be addressed first to ensure a healthy and stable environment for the makeover. 

2. Cosmetic Concerns: Understanding your specific cosmetic concerns is also important. Whether it's teeth discoloration, misalignment, gaps, or other aesthetic issues – we work closely with you to tailor the makeover to address these concerns.

Your goals and desires play a central role in the customisation of your treatment plan. 

3. Overall Health and Lifestyle: Your overall health is an important consideration. Certain medical conditions or medications, may impact the suitability of certain procedures.

Additionally, your lifestyle and daily habits, such as diet and oral hygiene practices, can influence the longevity of your smile makeover. We take all these factors into account to ensure your makeover is not only beautiful but also sustainable. 

4. Consultation: An essential step in determining candidacy is a comprehensive consultation with our dental professionals. During this consultation, we assess your dental health, discuss your cosmetic goals, and provide personalised recommendations.

At your consultation, you will receive an in-depth check up alongside your digital scan. We will then create a step-by-step treatment plan, outlining what appointments are needed and when, to achieve your dream smile. The use of a digital scan means that Dr Naasan can show you your current smile and generate an outcome of what it can look like after treatment, before work even begins! 

We have multiple specialists available at our practice, so we can refer in-house for any treatment needed prior to starting your cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening or Invisalign. This allows you to have all your smile makeover treatments done in one place, at our welcoming practice! 

This initial consultation also acts as an opportunity for you to ask questions, express your concerns, and work together with our team to create a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and expectations.

Determining the best age for a smile makeover 

There's a common misconception that there's an age limit for smile makeovers. In reality, age is not a barrier, and it's never too late to attain a radiant smile. We discuss factors that might influence your decision based on age, emphasising that your dream smile is achievable at any stage of life. 

One prevalent dental misconception is that smile makeovers are only for the young. This notion often stems from the belief that aesthetic dental procedures are primarily aimed at enhancing one's appearance. However, a smile makeover is not just about cosmetic enhancements; it's about overall oral health and well-being.

How much does a smile makeover cost? 

The cost of a smile makeover can vary based on several factors, including the procedures involved, the complexity of your dental needs, and your geographic location. While we can provide a general cost range, specific quotes are best discussed during a consultation. 

At Dee Dental, we offer competitive pricing and potential financing options, including 18-month interest-free finance. We believe everyone deserves their dream smile, and we're dedicated to making it affordable for you. 

How does a smile makeover work at Dee Dental Paisley? 

 At our practice, we follow a structured process to ensure you achieve your dream smile: 

  1. Consultation: We begin by understanding your desires and assessing your dental health. During this stage, we use first-class digital dentistry and advanced digital scans so that you can visualise your current smile and generate an outcome of what it can look like after treatment. 
  2. Personalised Treatment Plan: We craft a unique plan tailored to your individual needs, addressing your specific concerns and goals. 
  3. Execution: We provide a step-by-step walkthrough of the procedures involved, ensuring you are comfortable and informed at every stage. 
  4. Aftercare: Maintaining good dental health is vital throughout your treatment and after to maximise the results. We offer an affordable membership plan that includes check-ups and hygiene appointments, among other benefits, to help you maintain your beautiful smile.
