Has your smile ever made you unhappy? Do you secretly wish you could make a change, but are afraid of intensive treatments, or just don’t know where to begin?

Maybe you’ve done some research (aka googling) and have read about makeovers, braces, crowns, implants … and you’ve ended up completely overwhelmed. 

First thing to say is – we get it! 

That’s why we’re so excited to introduce you to Lite Dentistry. 

Introducing: Lite Dentistry

Lite Dentistry is a smile makeover option that makes transforming your smile quicker, more straightforward and more affordable than ever.

Delivered in less time, and with a ‘lighter’ touch than traditional smile makeover treatments, Lite Dentistry gives high-impact results that will completely transform the look of your smile.

There are just two important steps to a smile makeover with Lite Dentistry:

Step one:

We straighten your teeth and fix any small issues like minor overcrowding or gaps. We do this using Invisalign® clear aligners, which move your teeth quickly, comfortably and safely into their new position.

Step two:

We make alterations to the shape, size and colour of your teeth through simple treatments such as composite veneers, teeth whitening or gum contouring. These final touches are quick and easy with confidence-boosting results.

In this article, we will go into some depth about how this brilliant smile makeover approach can help you, so you can understand what to expect if you decide to go ahead.

Lite Dentistry: What is it?

Lite Dentistry includes cosmetic dental treatments that are minimally invasive. It’s an approach that is unique to Digital Smile Design (DSD) clinics like the House of Smile Design

Using advanced digital technology, we let you visualise your potential smile transformation before treatment gets started. This systematic and digital approach gives you more predictable results as you achieve the natural looking smile you’ve always dreamed of.

At the House of Smile Design, on top of your dream smile, we always prioritise your experience with us, ensuring that you’re comfortable, feeling confident and safe as you go through this journey with us.

How does Lite Dentistry work?

Let’s now get into what your Lite Dentistry experience with the House of Smile Design might be like. The good news is, it’s all very systematic, following a step-by-step process.

How does Lite Dentistry work

Here’s a glimpse:

Initial consultation: 

Your journey starts with a consultation where you sit with our expert Digital Smile Design dentists to discuss your goals and expectations. This open discussion helps us understand what you want and how we can help you get there.

Digital imaging and scans: 

In the next phase we 3D can your face, mouth and teeth to create high-quality digital images that act as the foundation for designing your new smile.

Designing your smile: 

Once your digital scans are ready, we enter them into the proprietary Digital Smile Design software that produces the digital model of your new smile. 

Preview and feedback: 

You can review and provide feedback on your new look. This is an important step, so we’ll encourage you to take your time. We’ll make adjustments as necessary until you’re 100% confident and happy.

Customised treatment plan: 

Once you’ve approved your design, your dentist creates a personalised treatment plan for you to take you from where we are now, to your dream smile.

Treatment begins: 

At last, your treatment begins, with a focus on the least invasive way to achieve your new smile.

Follow-up and adjustments: 

Once your treatment has ended we’ll follow-up with you and make any necessary adjustments to ensure you’re completely satisfied with your newsmile.

Which Treatments Are Part of Lite Dentistry?

A key focus of Lite Dentistry is to achieve your perfect new smile in the least invasive way possible. Your treatments will likely include some of:

Clear Aligners: 

These aligners gently nudge teeth that are slightly out of line into better positions, improving your smile right away.

Composite Veneers: 

Where necessary, composite material is bonded to your teeth to create a natural-looking and long-lasting improvement to the look of your smile.

Teeth Whitening: 

Whitening treatments remove stains and blemishes and help you achieve the shade you want on your teeth.

Gum Contouring: 

Delicate work on your gum line can make a huge difference to the look of your new smile
