Cosmetic dentistry

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, just ask your dentist what he could do to improve the appearance of your teeth. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out what is now available to correct crocked, worn, heavily filled or discoloured teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can provide an answer for anyone looking to improve their smile and their self-confidence.

Over the last 5-10 years, lots of new ways of cosmetically improving smiles have been developed, many of which are simpler, quicker and less expensive than the traditional methods. Here is a list of today's most popular cosmetic dental treatment options:

Composite bonding

Teeth sometimes lose their outer enamel surface through chipping, cracks or acid erosion. The tooth appears more yellow because of the darker dentine layer becomes visible. This is easily treated by bonding composite (a natural shaded filling material) onto the tooth surface (without the need for local anaesthetic or drilling). Once sculpted into shape, the composite is hardened, reshaped and then polished for an ideal smile.

Teeth whitening

One of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry amongst our patients in the practice is professional teeth whitening, which costs just £295. Only a dentist can safely get your teeth the whitest.

Veneers

An increasingly popular procedure, veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are fixed directly to the teeth. Porcelain veneers require less tooth reduction than crowns and are therefore a popular, less invasive option for closing gaps, straightening crowding or disguising discoloured teeth.

White fillings

Most people choose to have a white filling placed when an old amalgam (metal) filling requires replacement (provided there is enough sound tissue remaining for bonding on to). Some people electively decide to have all of their old amalgam fillings replaced, either one at a time or by quadrants.
