I have had profile balancing with Tara and I can honestly say it's been life changing. I no longer hesitate to do anything, I do not think about hiding my face when I smile or laugh or from the side. I only wish I had had the treatment done long ago. The new clinic is beautiful 😍 Tara is amazing she puts you at ease there is no pressure to treat and explains everything treatment is virtually pain free and only the teeniest of bruising. Emma on reception is wonderful very welcoming and makes you feel relaxed. I can not wait to get a few more tweaks.

I visited Tara and the clinic for my first time at ever having dermal filler. Tara is absolutely amazing at what she does, she made me feel so unbelievably comfortable and my results are so naturally amazing. She has really boosted my confidence and I knew I was in such safe hands. I cant wait to see her again in a few months time, and I also cant wait to visit the clinic for additional services. The clinic is absolutely amazing and as soon as you step in side, you feel so welcome. I cant thank her enough! I couldn't of wished for more, she is an absolute perfectionist at what she does and I am so grateful for finding her.

It can be daunting to go through with fillers but she has always made me feel safe & is very skilled at what she does. She is always there to provide help and advice post-treatment too, should you have any concerns. Her dedication to her craft and her patients shows through her work and the amazing service she provides. Thank you so much for all that you’ve done for me Tara, couldn’t recommend highly enough!x

What Is Gummy Smile ?

Gummy Smile treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to correct excessive gum exposure when smiling. This condition, known as a gummy smile, can affect one’s self-confidence. During the treatment, our skilled professionals use injectable fillers or muscle relaxants to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. By reducing gum visibility and enhancing the appearance of your teeth, Gummy Smile treatment can help restore your confidence and improve your overall facial harmony.

Meet The Aesthetics Team


I have now visited Twoth on three different occasion... The first time was to take my son (8 years old) to see Dr Counihan for a braces consultation and my son absolutely loved the entire experience from start to finish. In fact, he was so excited and relaxed about it all he wanted to get started immediately.

The second time around, I went to see Dr Counihan myself for a second opinion and found the experience just as good as my son did

Karin Thyselius

Before I found Dr Neil Counihan I had a long history of dental trauma and sadly I repeatedly was subjected to very poor dentistry. I was scared to let anybody near my mouth and teeth. I had lost hope!

Dr Counihan made me the promise, with the right care I can keep my mouth healthy and definitely keep my teeth for the rest of my life.

And most importantly he made me feel safe and listened to
