Anonymous Dublin
Reviewed 02 January 2017 "Great overall experience, would definitely recommend to others"
"I had a Six month smile orthodontic treatment carried out by Dr Michael Koukoulis- he's an expert in his field, that to include dental implants, surgeries, fillings, six month smiles treatment. Not only I received the overwhelming results at the end of treatment, which exceeded all my expectations, every visit to clinic was pleasant because of the time, attention, precision and professionalism demonstrated by this doctor. He manages to put patients at ease, explains in detail what exactly he will be doing during each visit abd what results to expect, always listens and answers all the questions, and never gives an impression that he's in a hurry although it is difficult to arrange an appointment with him, I assume because of too many happy patients:) I would definitely keep returning to this specialist in the future and refer my family and friends. Huge thanks to Dr Michael and Smiles:)

Great overall experience, would definitely recommend to others"
Luca Dublin
Reviewed 07 January 2016 "Fast treatment and overall it was good"
"I think the Dentist spent little time cleaning but the result was good. Makes me wonder why an Irish dentist spends much more time with same or worse results! I would definitely go back in 6/12 months time and ask for a better scale and polish but as I said overall it was good.

I had to wait for a very short time and visit/scale/polish was very fast and overall result was good. I'd try the clinic again. I will probably ask to clean my teeth better as I don't think the dentist cleaned the back part."
Anne-Marie Ireland
Reviewed 13 August 2015 "Made implant surgery look so easy"
"I got the root of my front tooth removed and an implant on the same day. I was very nervous going in but was very quickly put at ease. I had medication with me so I could relax before the procedure but was advised that I would not need it. I had been told by other specialists the root would be difficult in removing but Michael Koukoulis the specialist had it out in two minutes. I could not believe it, he made it look so easy. he then started with the implant and within 20 mins it was all over.

I would definitely go back to this clinic and Michael Koukoulis. He is an expert at his job. I travelled up from Galway and will keep doing so for any further treatments. I was given a briefing of the treatment beforehand and put at ease as I am a very nervous patient. At every stage He was reassuring me that all was ok."

Dental Bridges
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. Missing teeth can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.
From €40
Dental Checkup
€200  -  €600
Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, entirely covers or "caps" over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooths new outer surface. Crowns can be made out of porcelain (meaning some sort of dental ceramic), metal (a gold or other metal alloy), or a combination of both. Dental crowns are routinely made for teeth that have broken, worn excessively, or else have had large portions destroyed by tooth decay.
From €500
Porcelain Crown
From €600
Zirconia Crown
From €2200
Dental Implants
A dental implant is a metal fixture (usually a screw) that is placed into the jaw bone. It acts as a support for a false tooth or a set of false teeth. The fixture fuses with the jaw bone (osseointegration). Implants are made of commercially and medically pure Titanium. This is the same metal that has been successfully used in hip replacements for many years. It is inert and is not known to cause any type of rejection phenomenon.

Teeth Whitening

This is where the Dentist takes impressions of your teeth, and the customized trays are made for you in our lab. At this appointment, the Dentist will apply the first setting of whitening gel.  After this the patient will keep the trays and wear them for an hour a day for between ten to fourteen days. It’s a brilliant system and allows you to judge how white you want your teeth to go.

Home Whitening Kits
€500  -  €600
In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, and chips or cracks. Worn enamel: Over time, the thin, hard white substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled, and discoloured. Such wear and discoloration may be natural or the result of a genetic predisposition; however, it is often a result of your habits (soft drinks, tea or coffee consumption, smoking, medication use, etc.). Wear and tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance. Crooked or Misaligned teeth: Certain people may be born with abnormal spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age. Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.
