Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

Absolutely excellent service. All the staff are friendly and make sure all your treatment options are fully explained. Don't do anything unless your 100% sure of all that's available. Shiron made sure my treatment was the absolute best it could be.

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

I received my Spmu eyeliner treatment today at Smileworks. I am completely over the moon with the results and would highly recommend the treatment. The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

The most welcoming and friendly staff I have ever experienced anywhere, let alone a dentist. I felt in safe hands from the get-go and was so happy with the staff arranging appointments for me even outside of the practice. The creative and clever practice design (airplane) topped the fun experience off! Thanks MJ, Georgiana and Heloise.

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

composite veneers

Composite Veneers are created by your dentist out of a soft material which is hardened and polished at the practice. Created in one visit, composite veneers do not require the existing tooth to be drilled or filed. This makes them the most conservative option that retains your original tooth in it’s entirety.  This is great for the health of your smile.  Composite resin is truly an art form and our Dentists are highly skilled and experienced in creating beautiful, lifelike and compelling results.  The cost is another consideration for many patients because composite veneers are significantly less expensive than their laboratory made counterparts.


Take a look below at some patient testimonials.

prepless veneers


Prepless veneers (or no-prep veneers) are hand made by our award-winning master ceramist. They are designed as thin slivers of material that fit over your existing tooth and don’t require any drilling or preparation of the tooth surface.  This is great for the health of your smile and is – just like composite veneers – a conservative option that will not harm the underlying tooth structure or surface. The veneers are made from a special material that is painstakingly painted on in layers to create a lifelike, translucent quality.  You’ll not be able to tell the difference and the restoration will be so beautiful that you won’t be able to stop smiling.

Conventional / Porcelain Veneers


Conventional Veneers are made from Porcelain or EMAX and are slivers of material that fit over the damaged, cracked or discoloured tooth like a fake fingernail does on your hand. Conventional veneers fit tightly to the tooth surface because we prepare the tooth to be a special shape that will stop the veneer coming loose. Veneers are fashioned by our master laboratory technician who painstakingly builds each layer up to create a perfectly translucent and lifelike quality to the veneer. Here at Smileworks we only use the finest materials and your Veneer can be made from material as thin as paper but many times tougher than your natural teeth.

How long to they last?


Porcelain restorations are longer lasting and more durable than composites.  They will typically last you between 10-15 years.  There are many cases of them lasting even longer than that and it’s very much down to each individual patient.  Veneers are made of durable materials but they are not indestructible and will wear, chip and become damaged over time.


Am I suitable?


Most patients are suitable for porcelain veneers.  If you’ve already had some dental work done or have crowns and restorations then this is not a problem.  Likewise we have a number of patients who already have veneers that need replacing.  This can be done and our talented cosmetic dentists can speak to you about your particular case.  If you are in your 20’s with largely healthy teeth our dentists will be extremely reticent to fit veneers.



This is because we love healthy teeth and there are a number of conservative (non damage causing) methods that we can use to straighten, whiten or make over your smile.  By all means come for a consultation but don’t be upset when we recommend braces, whitening or composite veneers rather than filing all your teeth away and fitting porcelain restorations.  There are dentists in town who treat lots of younger patients with veneers and here at Smileworks we strongly disagree with this approach.  We love healthy teeth and the fewer root canals and the less expensive cosmetic dentistry you need the better.  Your health comes before anything.


How Long do Veneers Last?


Porcelain restorations are longer lasting and more durable than composites.  They will typically last you between 10-15 years.  There are many cases of them lasting even longer than that and it’s very much down to each individual patient.  Veneers are made of durable materials but they are not indestructible and will wear, chip and become damaged over time.



Veneers work something like fake fingernails. We design and make them from the finest materials and then fit them to your teeth for an instantly perfect, Hollywood smile. That said, nobody likes to look fake, and our cosmetic dentists will ensure that your veneers look perfect and use the most advanced, translucent and lifelike materials available in modern dentistry.  So if you’re looking for an “absolutely brilliant, honest and affordable service” from a team who “always, 100% go the extra mile to please” then book your appointment below.



The procedure for porcelain veneers is very simple.  Patients come into the office and consult wither with our treatment coordinators or our cosmetic dentists.  You will get a full tour of your mouth including any problems or issues that need correcting.  Your cosmetic dentists will use photography, intra-oral video cameras and advanced diagnostic procedures to determine the best course of treatment.



Once you have decided on a treatment that is best for you then your dentist will create a mock up or models of what your teeth will look like.  Once you are happy, the teeth are prepared and in a different appointment the veneers are fitted.  The whole process takes a week or two and the results will absolutely amaze you.  I cannot tell you how happy our veneers patients are.  It’s a big investment but they’re still one of the best ways to create a beautiful, long lasting smile makeover.


Crooked teeth: veneers vs braces

Here at Smileworks we offer perfect teeth straightening without the need for braces or orthodontics.  Composite or traditional veneers are a great alternative to braces for anything from slightly overlapping teeth to extremely crooked smiles.  Many patients, for whatever reason don’t want braces.  If you are one of these patients and the thought of braces turns you cold then veneers are for you.


The benefits of this method over braces is that it’s much quicker, and your new smile can be completed the same day or in less than a week.  Also there is no discomfort.  Some braces systems can cause mild discomfort and some people don’t like wearing them.  Furthermore, braces need to be worn for some time and patients might feel embarrassed or uncomfortable wearing them.


Contact Smileworks for a consultation where you can get all the answers about whether teeth straightening with veneers is for you.  We will also give you a treatment plan outlining the cost of veneers and ways that you can pay for your treatment including 0% finance.

Smile makeovers: full set of veneers

Veneers are a great way to fully restore your smile if you’re looking for a full smile makeover.  Such complete dental makeovers can involve fitting veneers to all of the front teeth or what dentists like to call ‘the social six’ teeth.  Smile makeovers are very popular with TV celebrities and Hollywood stars and many Smileworks patients don’t think that they would be suitable.  This is not at all true.  Smile makevovers are now more affordable than ever and more and more Liverpool patients are going for this procedure to help them feel more confident and live better lives.


A smile makeover with veneers is a great cosmetic solution for patients with lots of aesthetic problems in their mouths.  Your Smileworks dentist will choose the best veneer types for you and could use composite veneers, porcelain, EMAX or prepless.  It’s important that you come for a full assessment if you are thinking about a full smile restoration or smile makeover.  The problems in your mouth may be very different than you think and patients are often surprised to hear that their problems are actually very easy to fix.  Your smile makeover cost will be dependent on various factors.  These include the number of veneers required and the types of veneers that you choose.

Stained and discoloured teeth

There are many reasons you can get discoloured, yellow or brown teeth.  And this is one of the main factors that makes patients feel bad about their smiles.  Minor discolouration can be fixed easily with our whitening procedures.  However if your teeth are discoloured from the inside then whitening might not work for you or you might need a special ‘internal bleaching procedure’ to be carried out.  If these still don’t get you the result that you want, veneers can be a great option.


Even the most discoloured, brown or grey teeth can be effectively restored to a brilliant white with veneers. The types of veneer you choose are up to you and your dentist and Smileworks will always create beautiful, translucent and brilliant results that you’ll be proud of.  Patients who’ve had veneers at Smileworks often report that it’s changed their lives for the better or is the best money that they’ve ever spent.

What are the Risks or Veneers?


With porcelain veneers,  a small amount of the tooth surface needs to be removed to allow for the veneer to fit tightly.  This is for correct functioning and also for the perfect aesthetic appearance.  There is always a risk that you will require a root canal if the drilling damages the underlying structure of the tooth.  Alternatively over time you may require an implant.  A great way to avoid this risk is to opt for composite veneers.  However, for many patients this is an acceptable risk and the work is done here at Smileworks and can often be included under warranty.  Here at Smileworks we guarantee all our work and patients are extremely happy with how the veneers look and how long they last.



The benefits of porcelain is that it lasts longer and is extremely beautiful, lifelike and translucent.  Veneer cases and smile makeovers are one of the most popular dental treatments for good reason.  You could have spent your entire life worrying about the way your teeth look to have veneers and become more confident and happier.  Patients here at Smileworks often report that veneers have changed their lives for the better.  Also patients will often say that getting veneers is the best money they ever spent on anything.


Can I get them Cheaper Abroad?


Many patients are searching online about getting dental treatment abroad.  Although you do hear of patients having good experiences abroad we hear many more about patients whose experiences have been negative.  The reason people choose to get their dentistry abroad is because its cheaper.  But unfortunately cheap and quality are not the same thing and can never exist at the same time.  In fact cheap and quality are opposites.  Specific problems with getting veneers abroad are that they require a number of visits to get them just right.  So if you’ve flown over to Europe you will need to return.  Then there are the unforeseen things that sometimes go wrong.  These are fairly common and there is a high chance that you will be back and forward a whole lot of times before your veneers are perfect.



Also many dentists in the UK won’t be able to help because it’s often difficult to get notes and records from the foreign practices.  And without records, a dentist would be crazy to start messing around with foreign work that is failing.  So think carefully about getting dental work abroad.   If it looks too good to be true, then it usually is.  And remember also that your veneers have a 10-15 year lifespan so you’ll need to be going back to get them replaced in the long term.

Veneers Cost



To find out how much your Veneers will cost you’ll need to come in for a consultation.  So the numbers below are just a guide.  Some people are cynical and think that dentists will always try to overcharge for veneers.  Or that we want you to come in so that we can sell you things you don’t need.  This is simply not the case.  You want great veneers that are beautiful and natural looking and it’s a fact that there are literally hundreds of combinations of treatments that can get you those results.  There are dozens of different types of veneers and patients will need anywhere from 1 to 15 putting in their mouths!  Then there’s the underlying health of your mouth to think of and whether you need any additional work doing that might cost more or less.  Are we placing new veneers or replacing old ones?  Are you having composite or porcelain?  EMAX or Renamel?  When you put all these factors together, guessing what this procedure is going to cost before your consultation becomes difficult.



If you want a detailed treatment plan then you’ll have to come along and see our talented cosmetic dentists who will produce a treatment plan that you can afford and in line with your expectations.  We often tell patients that getting veneers is like buying a car.  You can get a car for £900 or you can get one for £50,000 – and how much you pay is up to you.



Here at Smileworks all of our dental treatments are available on finance so you can spread the costs over time in a manner that fits your lifestyle.  We have dental finance for 12 month to five year repayment periods and you can get 0% or interest bearing depending on your credit score.  Take a look below for a menu of some typical veneer prices but please don’t come in and demand we honour them for your particular case.  This will just make us have to explain what we’ve just explained all over again.  For all the detailed information about veneers costs take a look at our article below:
