A smile makeover gave Karen back her smile confidence.
Karen was snapped at a friend’s wedding laughing and when the pictures were emailed around Karen was mortified, it was the push she needed to do something more drastic.
aren had always looked after her teeth and naturally she thought that her regular NHS dental check ups would spot any problems that occurred. The thing that worried her more was cosmetic. Her teeth were crooked and stained which she always accepted as being just part of her smile….that was until when, in her early thirties, she found herself back on the dating scene. That’s a daunting prospect for most women and for Karen it sparked a real confidence issue about her teeth.
She had a gold crown at the back, which she was convinced everyone could see so she perfected her fake ‘closed mouth’ smile and tried to carry on. But then Karen was snapped at a friend’s wedding laughing and when the pictures were emailed around Karen was mortified, it was the push she needed to do something more drastic. She’d read about Smile Makeovers in magazines and thought that would be just the thing to get her confidence back.
Karen knew there was no chance of having cosmetic dental treatment done on the NHS, she didn’t even bother to ask her dentist, and instead she started to research private options. “I was horrified by the cost, I was quoted an obscene amount of money for the work I needed, and my dreams of a gorgeous new smile quickly disappeared.” Explained Karen. The average cost of having a zirconium metal free crown fitted by a UK private dentist is £650 and Karen needed 13 crowns as well as other cosmetic work to get her Hollywood smile, but she didn’t have movie star money available to pay for the work.
Meanwhile her partner dug a little deeper on the internet and discovered that some people travelled abroad for dental treatment. He discovered Smile Savers Hungary and together they decided to send her picture off for a quote. Karen received her Smile Makeover back showing what her new smile could look like and she was so impressed she booked her ticket straightaway!
THE SMILE SAVINGS
13 Zirconium Crowns,
5 composite fillings,
4 root canal treatment
TOTAL SAVING: £12,000
Once in Budapest the dentists there spotted some issues that her own dentist had missed, she needed some fillings and root canal treatment too. This essential work was carried out alongside the cosmetic dental treatments; it was all so easy for her and Karen felt total confidence in the dentist looking after her.
And the result? Karen now has a healthy, Hollywood smile that she’s happy to show off in photographs.

...The clinic was fantastic, it was really professional and they really cared about patients whereas in this country they'll only do the minimum because there are caps on what they can do on the NHS. It's made a massive difference. It was a brilliant experience, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat...
