Helping you have a confident smile
The way your eyes and your mouth look are vital to the way you communicate – especially smiling. Your smile is so important and can change the whole way you, and those around you, are feeling. It follows that the more comfortable you are with your smile, the more confident you will be at work and at home with friends and family.
If you would like to enhance your smile in any way, we may well be able to help. Modern, cosmetic dentistry can transform a smile.
Discoloured, misshapen and irregular teeth can be transformed to give you the smile you would like by using cosmetic veneers, crowns and bridges.
Veneers and crowns
A veneer is a facing made of porcelain, which is custom-made and is then bonded to the front surface of a tooth. It is very thin, in fact it is a similar size and shape to a false fingernail before fixed to the tooth.
A crown or “cap” is made of all ceramic material for the best aesthetic result. Crowns differ from veneers in that they cover the whole tooth. They are used when teeth are heavily filled or when more dramatic change is required.
Whitening can be a highly effective, yet simple way of lightening the colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
There are various methods to achieve your desired shade and can be easily maintained to allow you to have a long lasting white smile.
Tooth coloured restorations and fillings
Techniques now exist to allow us to repair your tooth with high quality fillings materials that can be matched to the colour of your tooth, to provide a natural looking alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. These filling materials also have the benefit that they are glued to the tooth which helps to strengthen the remaining tooth structure and are our first choice in most most situations.
