Cosmetic Dentistry

We also provide a cosmetic dentistry service for non invasive smile improvements such as teeth whitening, stain removal and cleaning.

Dentistry is no longer just a case of filling and extracting teeth.

Patients, quite rightly, turn to cosmetic dentistry or aesthetic dentistry, as a way of improving their appearance and enhancing their confidence.

The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth.

Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth coloured fillings, implants and tooth whitening and the flexible dentures with gum coloured clasps.

Veneers are thin slices of porcelain made to fit over surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail
It is an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth or repairing chips and cracks.

White fillings are now a popular alternative to amalgam or silver fillings. The new dental materials mean it is much easier to find a perfect match of a particular tooth.

Crowns are used to restore badly broken or heavily filled teeth. The newer immensely strong metal free crowns are particularly suitable for the front teeth.

Bridges and Implants are used to replace missing teeth where conditions in the mouth allow for them to be prescribed.
They are both fixed and cannot be removed
Bridges involve some level of tooth preparation, but implants do not rely upon adjacent teeth preparation.

Bleaching or whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It is important to remember that this non invasive treatment will only lighten natural teeth and that any crowns, bridges, fillings or dentures will stay the same shade
