Smile Design

Smile Design is a major focus of my dental practice. Like other restorative procedures, it is highly technical and combines precision with artistic ability from both the dentist and the dental technician.

Every smile is as unique and individual as the person who owns it. For this reason, time is spent to customise the plan for your smile so that the end result can meet your goals and your expectations. Before beginning any treatment, a comprehensive study of your oral health and aesthetics will be carried out.

A thorough set of diagnostic tools including a series of photographs will be used to gather information about your smile, your gums and your teeth. These tools will also provide ways to communicate with you about the possibilities for your smile.

The sequence used to design your smile is as follows:

  • A Diagnostic wax-up is made where the new smile is designed in wax.

  • This diagnostic wax-up is then transferred to the mouth as what is termed a Mock-up. This gives the patient a preview of the new smile design.

  • With your approval of the design, the teeth are then prepared and temporary veneers, crowns, etc are made to this new design. These are modified further until we achieve the desired shape and contours.

  • With your approval of the temporary restorations, having worn them for a number of weeks, they become the blueprint for the final porcelain veneers made by a highly skilled ceramic technician.

  • The final phase is the bonding procedure, a detailed and time-intensive procedure which results in the veneers being fused to the surface of your teeth. Time to celebrate! You now have the smile you've always dreamt of. A number of post-operative visits will ensure that everything has healed properly and that your smile looks great.

Patient Testimonial: It was only after all the work was finished that I realised how for 30 years I’d never really smiled. Thanks to your patience, diligence, skill and artistry that’s all in the past. I recall a number of occasions when I fell asleep while you were working – even I find that hard to believe; it says so much about you and your approach to your work. It’s quite amazing how you’ve fundamentally changed day-to-day living for me – and, today, I’m happy to smile!

Patient Testimonial: Having undergone extensive dental treatment under the care of Dr. Máirtín Brennan and his team, I couldn’t be happier with the end result. My initial priorities were to work with someone with a high level of expertise, to be involved in the decision making process and to have access to back up care should the need arise for it. Dr. Brennan’s attention to detail and his professionalism ensured that I had not even the slightest concern about any aspect of my treatment. My veneers were a wise investment. The end result is a healthy smile worn every day with much enthusiasm and satisfaction!

Patient Testimonial: I would just like to extend my gratitude for the work done on both myself and my daughter's teeth carried out by Dr. Máirtín Brennan at his lovely surgery. It was a very friendly atmosphere and the staff put me at ease. My biggest regret is that I didn't get it done sooner and I would like to again extend my thanks to Dr., Brennan and his staff for such a wonderful job. I am thrilled.
