Enhance Your Smile at Smile Essential

Dentistry is no longer just a case of filling and extracting teeth, as it was for many years. Nowadays, many people turn to cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry’, as a way of improving their appearance. The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges and tooth-coloured fillings.

Gappy smiles, discoloured teeth, odd shaped teeth, worn chipped teeth, old ugly fillings can all be fixed with cosmetic dentistry and its often not as complex as you think. A beautiful smile can really boost your confidence and roll back the years.

Husband and wife practice partners Shrikesh and Lina Kotecha, alongside Lina’s brother Niket Patel, make up a highly qualified team of caring dentists at Smile Essential, up to date with latest treatments and dedicated to a service that makes patients genuinely happy. The practice is located on Narborough Road just 5 minutes from Fosse Park and Leicester City Centre.

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments at Smile Essential is tooth whitening.  Most people would consider having white and bright teeth in order to have an attractive smile.

The Smile Essential professional tooth whitening service involves impressions being taken of your teeth to produce a custom-made whitening tray that fits into your mouth and is worn overnight for approximately two weeks. Before and after photos show impressive results and you can further boost the results with a combination of whitening gel top-ups and laser treatment.

Patient Sally Johnson from Knighton, Leicestershire is delighted with the results:

“I feel so much more confident as a person after seeing Lina to have my teeth professionally whitened.  She guided me through the painless treatment from start to finish and now I simply can’t stop smiling, as my teeth are brighter, whiter and all for a reasonable price too.”

In 2009, Smile Essential became the first practice in Leicestershire to have been awarded Gold Membership to the British Dental Bleaching Society. To achieve this prestigious membership, the dentists participated in intense and scrupulous training in all aspects of tooth whitening.
