Me and my mum came here for the first time last year,and I can’t praise Mj and the staff anymore we felt so welcome and at ease straight away. My lips where and still are amazing and i get so many compliments! They literally do go “above and beyond” and totally make you feel “first class” x
Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now...Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on.Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease.Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing.From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened.This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.
teamI'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date:After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas !Kindest regards

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works.
They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel.
Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment.
Their smile really works.
After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away.
Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen.
The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more.
Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!
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.
Had my fast braces fitted at Smileworks at the beginning of the year and recently had my lips done, MJ and the team are Lovely! Always a Friendly and professional service! Perfect opening hours which work around my job. Highly recommend! 😀
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.
Visited smileworks Saturday, place is amazing everyone was really welcoming and friendly. I was given all the answers to any questions i had before I even asked them!. Hannah was fantastic she gave me a full consultation. I am really happy with the outcome. I will be visiting smileworks in the future.
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 staff at Smileworks are fantastic, very welcoming and accommodating. They are always happy to go the extra mile to help you. I had fast braces and 1ml lip filler, i absolutely love the result. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to get braces or facial aesthetics, they really listen to what you want and combined with their professional knowledge you achieve the perfect result.
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.
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 pun...you'll see why!)
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.
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!
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!
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.
Cheek filler has a great dual action in the hands of an experienced injector. When placed in the cheeks, the HA fillers fill the tissue to create defined and beautiful cheeks that help patients regain their youthful looks. But the best part about treating the cheeks is that this is treating the cause of volume loss and the treatment helps reduce the nasolabial lines. Gone are the days when practitioners put filler actually into the nasolabial folds. This creates a ‘bulldog’ effect and makes patients look less feminine.
Cheek filler acts like a mini facelift and restores the area where the fat pads have diminished with age creating a subtle and beautiful lift. Patients will sometimes get nasolabial filler treatment directly into the lines but this is usually reserved for particular patients with a great deal of volume loss.
Cheek filler can be used alongside a Silhouette lift for truly outstanding results. If you’re interested in a non surgical face lift, follow the link.
Cheek filler defines and fills out the cheeks and softens the nose to mouth lines creating a lifting and rejuvenating effect
There may be some swelling or bruising but this is significantly diminished with the use of a blunt cannula. you'll be supermarket ready immediately and photo ready in a few days
The treatment is virtually painless and some filler contains anaesthetic. Patients tolerate treatment extremely well.
Between 30 minutes and one hour.
Risks & Complications
The procedure is reversible and safe. The main risks are bruising and swelling. Use of a cannula reduces the risks of the procedure.
You'll be advised on aftercare but cooling with ice / peas and not messing with the treated areas is the best aftercare advice to follow.
How long does filler last?
Filler is biocompatible which means that it is slowly absorbed by the body over time. Your results will last for around 12-18 months. The rate at which filler stays in your tissues is determined by environmental factors like sun exposure, smoking and how well you look after your skin.
How do I make it last longer?
You can give your filler the best chance of lasting for longer if you look after your skin with sunscreen and a good skincare regime. You must also not squeeze, massage or mess around with your filler as this can make it break down faster and shorten the duration of your results. Incidentally in areas of the face that have little or no movement, dermal fillers last significantly longer. For instance, in nose fillers procedures, your filler can last up to three years compared with lip fillers, that last only 6-12 months
How much does filler cost?
The products we typically use on the cheeks and midface are Voluma and Ellanse. Voluma costs £330 per ml. This is one syringe of product and a good starting point for many patients. The other product is Ellanse M which lasts longer and starts from £350 per ml. If we decide that you need two ml of filler then the price will increase accordingly.
Many patients come to Smileworks complaining of looking constantly tired. This is because they have dark circles around their eyes. This can be caused by volume loss as you age, the shape of the undereye area (or ‘tear trough’) or because of environmental factors. This treatment is typically referred to as ‘filler for dark circles’, ‘eye-bag filler’, ‘tear trough treatment’ or treatment for ‘eye hollows’. It’s all the same though and you can read all about it here.
If you have sunken eye hallows or tired-looking eyes, this can have an impact on your confidence and perception of beauty. Everyone likes to appear awake, up-for-it and refreshed, and tear trough treatment is extremely popular for this reason. It’s not just tiredness or late nights out that cause hallows or sunken areas beneath the eyes. It can be from your genetics, volume loss as you age or other factors.
Injectable tear trough filler can be used to fill out these hallows and create a refreshed, bright and awake look that is extremely popular with patients. The Juvederm filler is placed extremely carefully with a cannula that doesn’t damage the surrounding tissues and reduces the swelling and downtime following your procedure. Tear trough filler is different from a non surgical blepharoplasty or Plexr treatment. This is where the eyelid is sagging and Plexr can be used to zap away the saggy skin to create a wakeful and refreshed look. You can read about Plexr Soft Surgery here.
If you have wrinkles or fine lines around the eyes these can also be treated with Botox® and Plexr or you can ask for a treatment plan that combines two or three treatments with Plexr, tear trough filler and Botox® for a full rejuvenation of the eyes.
Tear Trough filler fills out the hollows beneath the eye to produce a refreshed, youthful and alert result
Using a blunt cannula, the procedure produces minimal downtime and you won't need time off work.
The procedure is painless and local anaesthetic is used around the eye. Patients tolerate this procedure very well.
Using a blunt cannula significantly reduces any risks that can cause swelling or bruising.
As with all filler avoid messing with the treated area and don't rub your eyes immediately following treatment.
Tear Trough Treatment
Tear trough rejuvenation is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment for patients with lower eyelid dark circles or dark hollows. Tear troughs are the part of the face beneath the lower eyelid and the upper cheek. As we get older this area often suffers from fat and bone loss, making the eye appear more sunken, and producing an ageing effect. The tear trough is a groove that develops between the eyelid and the cheek. Treatment for this area involves facial filler, a synthetic product that is injected into the skin, to smooth out creases and folds. They are often jelly-like in consistency, promoting volume in the creases of the skin to fill out the area and smooth the contours of the face.
This cosmetic treatment is primarily used to combat signs of ageing. Many people think they look older than they feel, and the area around the eyes is a key factor in this. Facial filler replaces lost volume and at the same time retains skin hydration, ideal for those who want a soft and natural correction of shadows. The filler is injected with a very fine micro needle under the skin surface along the line of the hollow. Dermal fillers are not permanent and will break down over time. The results of tear trough treatment vary from patient to patient; however, in experienced hands, the results should last around 9-12 months.
I get 8 hours of sleep, why do I have eye hallows?
The skin under the eyes is extremely delicate and as you age the fat disappears and the skin loses it’s elasticity and volume. This can cause dark circles even if you get lots of sleep and avoid alcohol and smoking.
What causes under eye bags?
Volume loss in the fat pads and delicate skin losing it’s elasticity as you age.
How long do under eye fillers last?
Under eye fillers can last up to 12 months to 2 years.
Tear trough makeup & concealer
There are many makeup techniques designed to eliminate the severity of hollow-looking eyes and bags. A quick Youtube search on “makeup for eye bags” will wield 405,000 results, thus there are plenty of options when it comes to covering up these pesky shadows. However, makeup is of course only a temporary solution, and must be applied daily.
Avocado oil tear trough alternatives
Most women choose medical remedies for the improvement of sunken eyes. However, there are natural alternatives to sunken eyes, though these remedies can take a fair amount of time to show results. Avocado oil is one such natural remedy. The essential fatty acids present in avocado oil thicken and nourish the under-eye skin. This oil also enhances the collagen production and wound healing processes of the body. Thus, the under-eye skin area will become supple and glowing. Simply apply a few drops of the oil on the under-eye area and leave it on overnight. After a few weeks, you may notice the dark circles fading away.
Risks and Complications
Any substance injected into the body may cause an allergic or inflammatory reaction. However, the risk of an allergic reaction is extremely rare and can be treated with oral or injectable corticosteroids. If results are considered unsatisfactory, there is also the option of removing the product using an injectable enzyme (hyaluronidase). Performing treatments to the hollow area under the eyes requires meticulous technique. When done correctly the results are satisfying. The most important factor is to go to a very experienced injector, such as Dr. MJ Rowand-Warmann at Smileworks Liverpool. She has treated hundreds of satisfied patients with injectable filler.
Contour irregularities occasionally occur as a side effect of filler treatment. Massaging can usually smooth any inconsistencies in the skin, however if lumpiness is persistent, the filler can be rapidly dissolved using hyaluronidase. Because the area around the eyes is so delicate, it is much more prone to bruising than other parts of the face. You can expect to have noticeable bruises and some swelling for a short period proceeding the treatment. It is also very normal for the area to feel sore after a treatment; however, if you experience unusual pain and discomfort afterwards, it is advised to contact the practice and speak to a doctor.
Does massage work?
A facelift massage is a type of massage that is intended to elevate sagging tissues, smooth wrinkles, and give you a more youthful appearance overall. These massages typically target the tear trough, and facial folds like nasolabial lines or parentheses lines. However, the effectiveness of this treatment is still questionable. There are no studies on the procedure, therefore its validity as a treatment is based on the claims of providers.
Do treatment creams work?
Wearing SPF 30 every morning, sunglasses, and using a retinol or collagen cream under the eyes can potentially provide some benefit. It is best to speak with your dermatologist or skin care professional to see what options are most suitable for you.
Can you get rid of tear trough lines naturally?
There are a variety of ways to treat dark circles, as well as under eye wrinkles and bags. It is important to note however, that the majority of times the cause for discoloration is genetic, and due to the viability of the blood vessels below the skin. A combination approach is always needed to get the best results in this area and this includes: topical skin care, and fillers if placed appropriately. Cold compresses can be used to eliminate puffiness or swelling.
Who is suitable for tear trough treatment?
Dermal fillers are not advised for pregnant or nursing women. Patients who suffer from puffy eyes are also not suitable for tear trough treatment as hyaluronic acid in this area tends to aggravate the problem. A full assessment of your suitability will be made at your consultation.
What type of filler for under eye bags?
Juvederm Volbella is the best treatment for tear troughs and Smileworks injectors always use a cannula which is like a blunt needle to insert the filler carefully and without causing swelling and downtime. We tend not to use Restylane here at Smileworks as we do not feel it is as predictable as Juvederm.
How much do under eye fillers cost?
Juvederm Volbella tear trough treatment costs £360 for most patients although you will need to come along for a consultation and get an accurate quote. Each patient is different and you will be given a quote. The cost of tear trough treatment depends on the volume of dermal filler required to achieve an optimal correction.
Your tear trough filler procedure
The purpose of a tear trough treatment is to replace volume loss, so fillers are injected into the under eye area to create a fuller and more youthful appearance. The fillers can be administered by a needle or cannula depending what the client or doctor prefer—each have their own benefits.
Needle or cannula?
There are two instruments that can be used for this procedure: a needle, or a cannula, which is a thin tube inserted into a vein or body cavity to administer medication. Needles allow for more precision as the doctor is able to accurately tell what depth they are injecting at. However, there is more risk of bruising and swelling. Cannulas are slightly less precise than the needle, but do not cause as much bruising and swelling.
Does it hurt?
The discomfort experienced from injecting filler in the tear trough is minimal. Many patients find that treatment at Smileworks is comfortable, as MJ is a highly-skilled and precise practitioner. Many dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic. The skin around the eyes is a delicate area, thus we ensure that all of our patients are relaxed and secure during treatment here.
Downtime & Aftercare
Immediate reactions to tear trough filler may include swelling and redness at the injection site. Occasionally bruising can occur which if significant may last 5-7 days. During this time make-up can be applied. You should avoid putting pressure on the area for up to two days after treatment, while the filler is still soft, to prevent disfiguration. Ice can be applied to the area and often helps with any swelling and bruising. After a few weeks, all swelling and bruising should have subsided and your filler should have settled into its final result.
Treating Volume Loss
Volume loss is a natural process where fat pads in the skin start to disappear and the tissues begin to sag. This causes the deep lines that you see from your nose to mouth (nasolabial folds) and around the mouth (perioral lines). There are a number of causes that are part of the natural ageing process, genetic or related to environmental factors like sun exposure and smoking. Volume loss in the midface leads to signs of ageing that are similar across many individuals. You may notice your cheeks flattening and losing their fullness and your skin beginning to sag around the nose and mouth. Volume loss is the process that, over time, makes patients start to look older. If you’re not looking older but tired, then read on for our tear trough and under eye treatments.
The skin is made from sugars and collagen that give it it’s elasticity. In the youthful face, the collagen is present and the sugar (hyaluronic acid) are abundant. As you age these chemicals diminish naturally and the skin loses it’s plumpness and cheeks lose their firmness. This process also occurs in the lips. For more information about volume loss in the lips follow the link here to Lip Fillers.
Treatment prices are bespoke and calculated at your consultation. Your treatment will be presented to you in a comprehensive and itemised treatment plan so you will get no surprise about the price of your treatment.
