About the treatment

Gum Shields

Gum shields, also known as mouth guards or dental guards, are protective devices worn over the teeth and gums to prevent injury during sports activities or teeth grinding (bruxism) during sleep. At New Look Smile, we offer a variety of gum shields tailored to meet your specific needs, including clear night guards, coloured sport guards, and custom-branded boxing guards.

Types of Gum Shields:

  1. Clear Night Guards: Clear night guards are designed to be worn while sleeping to protect against teeth grinding and jaw clenching. They are made from a clear, durable material that molds to the shape of your teeth for a comfortable fit.
  2. Coloured Sport Guards: Coloured sport guards are specially designed for athletes participating in contact sports such as football, basketball, hockey, and martial arts. They provide cushioning and protection against impact to the teeth and jaws during athletic activities.
  3. Custom Branded Boxing Guards: Custom branded boxing guards are specifically tailored to fit the unique shape and size of your mouth for maximum protection during boxing and combat sports. They can be customised with logos, team colours, or personal branding for a professional and personalized touch.


The process of obtaining a gum shield typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, our dentist will assess your needs and discuss the best type of gum shield for you based on your lifestyle, activity level, and budget.
  • Impressions: Impressions of your teeth will be taken to create a custom-fitted gum shield that provides optimal comfort and protection.
  • Fitting: Once the gum shield is fabricated, you will return for a fitting appointment to ensure proper fit, comfort, and functionality.
  • Instructions: Our dental team will provide you with instructions on how to care for and clean your gum shield to maintain its effectiveness and longevity.


  • Protection: Gum shields provide essential protection against dental injuries, including chipped or broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, and soft tissue damage.
  • Comfort: Custom-fitted gum shields offer superior comfort and fit compared to over-the-counter options, allowing for unrestricted breathing and speaking during wear.
  • Customization: Coloured sport guards and custom-branded boxing guards can be personalized to reflect your individual style, team colours, or branding preferences.
  • Prevention: Night guards help alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding and jaw clenching, such as headaches, jaw pain, and tooth wear, promoting better oral health and overall well-being.

"My partner and I spent 9 days in Antalya for dental work after initial consultations and X-rays in Manchester, where we were quoted the maximum costs (which turned out to be less in Antalya). Chris from Liverpool was our initial contact, ensuring no language barriers. The exceptional service continued in Antalya, from airport pickup to our return home. The staff, including drivers, receptionists, and dentists, were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Dr. Gokmen's care and attention to detail were outstanding, reassuring me throughout the process, and the results for both of us are amazing. The service exceeded any UK dental experience, identifying and resolving issues that UK dentists had missed. We received five-star treatment and highly recommend New Look. Special thanks to Oliver, Lisa, Fatma, Dr. Gokmen Basra, Dr. Tahsin, Betul Ozcopur, and Firat Iskender."
