Harnessing the power of technology to create the perfect smile


Discover the gold standard of teeth whitening: Enlighten®

If you’ve been looking into teeth whitening around Cardiff, the chances are you’ll have been inundated with options, from home whitening kits to in-surgery whitening. With Enlighten® whitening – which dentists love for its gentle treatment and predictably excellent results – Holmes Dental Care offers the best of both worlds. Combining custom-made bleaching trays that you wear at home with a final treatment at the practice, Enlighten® can brighten your teeth by up to 16 shades. It’s the only whitening system to guarantee shade B1 – the whitest you can go.

How Enlighten works

Step 1: We’ll take mess-free digital dental impressions at Holmes Dental Care. These are sent to a lab, where your bespoke bleaching trays are engineered. While you’re waiting, your dentist will provide you with Enlighten’s Tooth Serum – a special toothpaste that works to improve the whitening process and strengthen your teeth against sensitivity.

Step 2: You’ll return to Holmes Dental Care to collect your trays, along with your prescription Enlighten® bleaching gel. Wear your trays at home, every night, for around two weeks.

Step 3: Your final visit to Holmes Dental Care will include a 40-minute in-surgery Enlighten® treatment to boost and fine-tune the shade of your newly whitened teeth. Keep your trays safe, as you’ll be able to use them in future for top-up treatments to maintain the brightness of your smile.


Change the way you greet the world with a smile makeover

Holmes Dental Care offers a comprehensive range of cosmetic treatments – so if you are unhappy with your smile, but can’t pinpoint exactly why, a smile makeover consultation is the ideal first step. Most people associate smile makeovers with getting a full set of veneers – and while this can be the perfect solution for some, there is a lot more to a smile makeover! During your consultation, we’ll help you identify which treatments would be most suitable for your needs and lifestyle, and come up with a bespoke treatment plan that clearly explains what you can expect. We can also discuss easy ways to spread the cost of your smile makeover, including 0% finance.

What might a smile makeover at Holmes Dental Care include?

Dental implants – a permanent solution for missing teeth
Orthodontics – advanced teeth straightening that doesn’t impact on your lifestyle
Restorative dentistry – highly aesthetic crowns, bridges and veneers
Teeth whitening – prescription-only whitening that works
Gum sculpting – gentle laser surgery to treat a ‘gummy smile’
Cosmetic bonding – using a mouldable composite material to cover minor imperfections


Had the ‘ Six Month Smiles’ with Barry Holmes which took just under a year. He was very professional, efficient and caring. He explained everything in a very clear manner and had plenty of time to answer any questions.

The overall result is amazing. The staff were very caring and efficient and so friendly. I would recommend the surgery to anyone who asks me!

Many thanks! Can’t stop smiling 🙂

I was absolutely delighted with the two new crowns that Barry carried out for me. My old crowns from many years ago looked large and ugly and a poor match to my other teeth. Barry took enormous care to ensure a perfect match, re-shape the crowns by a series of impressions and fine-tuned the temporary crowns. The end result was amazing and I am thrilled to bits.

To Barry & all of the wonderful staff, I have had the most wonderful experience here.

The staff are extremely professional, supportive and immediately put you at ease.
They were informative and helpful at every step of my treatment. I would highly recommend this surgery to anybody wishing to make some ‘life changes’. I am a changed woman! For 36 years, I have been so paranoid about my smile and was always conscious when having photos taken. I now feel so much more confident an not conscious about my smile at all. I don’t think I have ever smiled so much! I am so so happy. I will be forever grateful to you all. I’m going to miss my little visits here!

Thank you! Thank you a million times over.
