You Never Need To Hide Your Smile Anymore!

We understand that many people can be unhappy with their smile for a variety of reasons. Their teeth may be worn down, twisted, missing, or discoloured. Sometimes it’s a combination of issues, which is where a smile makeover fits in.

Enhancing your smile can dramatically rejuvenate your entire appearance. Full smile makeover treatments can range from white fillings, crowns and veneers to more cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and teeth straightening.

A smile makeover has the capacity to:

  • Improve self-esteem
  • Boost confidence
  • Improve jaw function
  • Fix multiple tooth problems at once
  • Create long-lasting, potentially permanent results.

What treatments are traditionally included as part of a full smile makeover?

SmileFast

What is SmileFast?

SmileFast is the ground-breaking new development in Smile Design and the Provision of Smile Makeovers. The amazing new system brings together the three essential elements of modern cosmetic dentistry, which are orthodontics braces, ceramic and composite veneers.

SmileFast helps you to quickly visualise your planned new smile, understand the journey and then experience the smile-changing results. By cutting out most of the time-consuming preliminary stages for Dentists, SmileFast has simplified the process meaning you can reach the smile of your dreams at a price you can afford.

We start by taking the relevant photos and records. Then using the latest 3D-planning technology along with the unique SmileFast system, we design the perfect smile and outline possible treatment options.

The great thing about this system is that we can now place a custom-designed composite veneer smile makeover for the front 6 teeth in just one application. Meaning you walk away with the perfect smile in no time at all.

Veneers – porcelain or composite

What are Veneers?

A dental veneer is a shell, or layer of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite. It is placed over the front surface of your tooth to fix worn teeth, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discolouration and chips or cracks. A crown is like a veneer, but covers the full circumference and biting surface of a tooth.

Teeth Straightening

Braces & Retainers

We use treatments that will perfect your teeth in just a matter of months! Our braces are so discreet, no one need know that you even have a brace in!

We offer 3 types of braces depending on your needs. We have tooth-coloured brackets and wires that fit on the front of your teeth. We have brackets and wires that fit behind your teeth, and we have clear plastic, removable aligners.

Teeth Whitening

In practice or at home

The technique involves taking impressions of your teeth and getting laboratory made, custom bleaching trays. Tooth whitening gel is then applied to the trays which are fitted to the teeth.

The trays hold the gel on the teeth and with time the teeth lighten. The more often you apply the gel the lighter the teeth will go. 

Cosmetic Bonding

What is it and why is it so popular?

Cosmetic bonding, often called resin bonding, is when a tooth-coloured resin is bonded to your teeth, then sculpted into the proper shape. The resin is a composite of liquid acrylic and tiny particles of glass. The composite resin forms a durable, stain-resistant surface that can be polished to mimic the texture of your natural teeth.

Composite bonding involves applying a tooth coloured composite resin material to your existing teeth. The resin is moulded by your dentist so that it creates a perfect match with your surrounding teeth. It is used across the world for whitening or masking discoloured teeth, improving cosmetic structure, filling dental gaps and repairing broken or fractured teeth. All in all, composite bonding is a perfect solution for solving minor dental imperfections.

Digital Smile Design (DSD)

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a modern approach to cosmetic dentistry that uses advanced technology to design a customized, aesthetically pleasing smile for patients. It is a process that involves taking digital images and videos of the patient’s face, mouth, and teeth, and using specialized software to create a 3D model of the patient’s smile.

DSD allows dentists to analyze the patient’s facial and dental characteristics and create a virtual simulation of the final outcome, allowing the patient to see how their new smile will look before any treatment begins. This helps to ensure that the patient is satisfied with the end result and that the treatment plan is tailored to their specific needs and preferences.

The DSD process may include a variety of cosmetic dental treatments, such as teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and orthodontic treatment, among others. The goal of DSD is to create a natural-looking smile that complements the patient’s facial features and enhances their overall appearance and confidence.

DSD is becoming increasingly popular as patients seek more personalized, predictable, and effective cosmetic dental treatments. It allows dentists to provide a high level of care and precision, resulting in better outcomes and greater patient satisfaction.

I had my first 2 fillings this week with dentist Sam Lockhart. I was worried they would hurt as I've never had any procedures done - I can honestly say there was zero pain and it was a great experience. I'll never be worried about dental work again. Thank you!

I've only had 2 courses of treatment so far from Jasmine but have found her to be friendly, efficient and informative. She conducts her business very professionally but with a very good 'bedside manner', thus making the patient feel relaxed and confident. A very positive experience so far with my new dentist - keep up the good work!I originally posted the above about a year ago but can now confirm (having had several courses of treatment) that Jasmine has lived up to my expectations and initial assessment. She is a very good dentist, has a great reassuring manner and I have great respect for her. Jasmine and Bethany are a very good team, conducting business in an efficient and friendly way. All good!

Ed is the best dentist that I’ve ever had and I’ve had many after being given Tetracycline as a child which took the enamel from my adult teeth. He is very sympathetic to those people who are scared of the needle and drill. He works fast and efficiently whilst still allowing the patient to rest. I really can’t fault anything. He explains every procedure and helps you to make an informed decision which is best for you. He truly is the best.

My new dentist Jasmine wss friendly and welcoming.She took great trouble to check all my teeth (gently) and showed me them on a screen(fascinating) whilst explaining the work which needed to be done.Because I could clearly see my teeth..this all made sense to me.While lying back in the dentist's chair i also enjoyed watching a gorgeous travel film of Italy (no sound) which was v relaxing.I would highly recommend.

I have been attending Ed and April's practice - Links Dental Practice, for many years, both as an NHS and private patient and have always been happy and satisfied with the attention and procedures I received. I have always been well looked after and even today they were able to take me for an emergency appointment, having only called them this morning. Great 5 star service always.

I was initially sceptical about signing up for regular visitsto the dental hygeinist but am now an enthusiastic convert. Moon goes the extra mile, explaining clearly whats going on, taking the necessary action and then focussing on making my teeth look less grotty. Worth every penny.

I finished my teeth alignment with Dr. Jasmine today. I am so excited to see my teeth neat and aligned, and everything goes smoothly where they are supposed to be. I would like to express my biggest thanks to Dr. Jasmine who is diligent, professional and highly experienced in her expertise. She is also a kind and patient dentist that kept track on all the details at every stage of my treatment. I also appreciate all the help and care from the whole team. Many thanks to Shufan and all the members on the reception who always contacted me on time to keep track on the treatment. Thanks to all of them, I finally got my biggest smile again with my aligned teeth. Hope the work of the whole team is going on well.

I have had some minor treatment recently with Dr Sam Lockhart, and I can't praise him enough for being such a wonderful, skilled dentist. He always takes time to explain what he is doing and my treatment was genuinely pain free. It's great to have a dentist you feel safe with.Sammy his dental assistant was also very good. Thanks to you both!Juliet

I want to extend my sincerest thanks to Sam Lockhart (supremely decent, gifted dentist), Sammy (trainee assistant who is better than most trained assistants and with a truly caring approach to her profession) and the lovely receptionist from Asturias. You chaps saved my Christmas. We never met before and we may never meet again, but this was the most positively unforgettable visit to a dental surgery I have ever had in more than sixty years. I salute you. Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2024.

I went to Links Dental Practice for help, as for many years I was scared of dentists and my teeth were in very bad condition. I had a very friendly chat with Louise and on the same day I met Sam Lockhart. He is an amazing dentist with a great approach to patients. He made me feel comfortable and we arranged the process of fixing my smile. During every visit I was completely informed of what the plan was and what was going on, all procedures were painless. Sam Lockhart and his assistant Sammie are the best you can get. I would recommend them to everyone.Big THANK YOU for your help, you are the best.

I have been with this practice many years and have had excellent service. Being in Denplan I was given all the treatment I have needed. The only problem was in lock down due to the restrictions on dentists, but that is the fault of the Scottish Government and not the practice.
Elizabeth F.

Without a doubt the best dental practice I've been to. Dr Sam Lockhart and Claire were genuinely excellent. They were aware of me being a nervous patient, they didn't rush and explained everything along the way for a tooth filling 🦷 The whole process was smooth and pain free, they first use a numbing gel, then the actual local anaesthetic so you don't get the pain of injecting the anesthetic in the first place. They were happy to play music in the room to distract me from the drilling which was really helpful. As a private practice, they can be expensive, but for someone like myself who is nervous who avoided dentists for sometime, it's worth paying to get the attention and care. Overall, I strongly recommend them.

I am so lucky to have found this practice for my Invisalign treatment, bonding, whitening, and overall dental care! Dr Sam and Nurse Claire made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during our appointments, and were very thorough in explaining the procedures to me. They were also extremely patient, kind, and helped with so many other services and dental advice unrelated to my treatment! Everyone in the reception was also very warm and welcoming, and going to the dentist became a highlight of my day. The clinic was also visibly very hygienic and professional. The end product was beautiful, and I'm very happy with my smile now!

This is a first class practice. Jasmine has demonstrated through her calm, friendly and intelligent approach that pain free dentistry can be achieved, allowing me to be relaxed with certain, more difficult procedures.The practice is a modern and relaxing environment with friendly and helpful reception staff. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now!

Sam and Claire, as always, very efficient and professional but ready for a laugh 😊 Treatment options are always discussed and I know what my choices may be with my very tricky dental problems. Treatment has always been pain free. Today, I had an extra long appointment time and there was the option of choosing two items to ease my time in the chair. I chose the warm neck pad and the back massager. The neck pad was so warming, comforting and relaxing. The back massager, was doing the job but I found it noisy and distracting {perhaps not helped by my hearing aids} and I felt that I didn't want anything to be distracting Sam and Claire, especially Sam whose head was obviously quite near. 😊 I'd rather listen to the music 😊 However, others may find it useful.

I had a particularly complex situation due to some current treatment and Sam did a fantastic job with my teeth. Incredibly knowledgeable and comforting about the procedures. I really appreciated a very detailed email about potential options and the pros and cons. Superb experience for a horrible tooth accident. Thank you!

I’d like to thank & acknowledge Sam & Claire for their excellent pain free service. Sam replaced a deep filling & his care & attention to detail was clearly evident when I ran my tongue over the filling. No rough edges, no pain & really well sculpted new tooth. I’ll going to look after this one! Thanks Stuart A

This place has totally changed my mindset when it comes to going to the dentist! I can honestly say I felt ZERO pain.I am a very nervous and anxious person when it comes to the dentist, especially when it comes to needles. My dentist (Sam) and nurse (Claire) were very accommodating and respectful of my nerves and anxiety. They took things at a pace I was comfortable with, explained what they were doing and why, and made me feel relaxed.I am now getting back on top of my dental care and have regained my confidence to smile without covering my mouth.

This is one of the best dentists that I have been too.After having a few scary experiences elsewhere I'm extremely nervous about attending dental appointments but Sam was fantastic at putting my mind at ease and talking me through everything step by step. I even returned for my follow up appointment without running away.Many thanks for Sam and Claires patience and restoring my faith in coming back to the dentist.I'm not the easiest person when I'm nervous so well done on doing a fantastic job.I'll be back.

Hate to say it but Dr Sam is the best!!!! but am biased I know. He has spent hours doing very awkward and tricky treatments in my mouth..and I just sit there totally relaxed knowing he is working gently and efficiently on my mouth and transforming my smile, so I now dare smile!! Am full of confidence and almost look forward to going to the dentist!!!!! He and Claire work seamlessly together too. Thank you!

My recent visit to Links Dental Practice was a very relaxed and stress-free experience. They were able fit me in at short notice to fix my chipped tooth. Dr Jasmine Tolat and nurse Lauryn were very reassuring and accommodating, and were able to repair my tooth there and then. The process was quick, easy, and pain-free from start to finish. I thoroughly recommend Links Dental Practice and their wonderful staff to anyone in need of dental care.
