Your smile is the first thing a person will notice about you. So why not make it your best smile?
Cosmetic dentistry is becoming increasingly popular and is said to be increasing by almost 40% year on year.
Here at The Gentle Dental, we have over 25 years of experience treating and transforming smiles.
By combining the latest technology, the expertise of our dentists, and transparent costs, we can make your smile perfect for you.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
The price of cosmetic dental treatment will vary significantly depending on the type of treatment you need and the cosmetic dentist you choose too.
The price of your new smile will depend on a few considerations:
- Your requirements for improving your smile
- The state of your teeth to begin with
- Preliminary treatments before cosmetic work such as tooth extraction or alignment
- The design of your finished set of teeth
- The quality of materials used for treatment
We want our cosmetic treatments to be as accessible and affordable as possible, which is why our fees are completely transparent, and we offer easy payment plans on all our treatments to suit your individual needs. See our finance options here.

Cosmetic and restorative dental treatments are often combined
Many cosmetic dental procedures—such as dental bonding, porcelain crowns, and bridges—restore the look and health of your smile at once.
Cosmetic procedures work to repair chips and cracks, restore damaged teeth and rebuild the smile’s brightness and symmetry.
Cosmetic dentistry is good for your oral health too!
While cosmetic treatment seemingly just restores the look of the teeth, it also helps improve oral health, gum health, and jaw strength too.
Whitening and veneers are the most common cosmetic treatment
The most popular treatment is whitening the teeth – whether through veneers or professional teeth whitening.
Whitening and veneers are easy and convenient treatments that improve the look of the smile in no time!
- Fixing your smile can restore your confidence
If you are self-conscious about your smile, then cosmetic treatment can completely restore this confidence as well as make your smile more noticeable, younger-looking, and more impressive.

Teeth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to make your smile a few shades whiter.
Though many over-the-counter kits can whiten your teeth at home, it is better to undergo this treatment with a professional dentist from £300.
Composite bonding is a cosmetic treatment that is most commonly used to repair cracks, chips, or small gaps in between the teeth.
A resin is applied to the teeth, before being shaped by one of our highly skilled cosmetic dentists to match your teeth.
A trial smile is a great way to visualise what your cosmetic treatment will look like.
If you are conscious that your smile is gummy and you have short teeth, or your gum line is uneven, then gum reshaping is a perfect option for you.
A smile makeover can mean anything from a veneer right through to full mouth reconstructive treatment.
If you are wary of long or uneven teeth, then cosmetic dental contouring is a perfect way of evening out your smile.
