We offer many different cosmetic dentistry treatments including:
Onlays And Inlays
Sometimes known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are made from porcelain or composite materials which look natural but which are highly durable. Rather than being molded in your mouth in the dental surgery, they are made in a dental laboratory and then bonded into place by your dentist.
If your teeth are chipped, broken, decayed or discolored, we can restore your beautiful smile by using composite materials that match your tooth’s natural color. We apply it to your tooth, sculpt it to the right shape, contour it then harden it with a high-intensity light for an invisible restoration that blends flawlessly with your smile.
An incredibly popular treatment is tooth whitening which removes stains caused by drinks like coffee and red wine, food, smoking or poor oral hygiene. While home whitening kits are available, the results they produce are poorer than those which we can achieve with our professional-quality products and cutting-edge techniques. Our bleaching process is safe, quick and painless, and is guaranteed to perfectly match your existing crowns and fillings.
Invisalign is a modern treatment which uses clear plastic aligners which are customized to fit in your mouth to gradually move your teeth to the correct position for a straight and perfect smile. Ideal for treating crooked teeth or small gaps between teeth, Invisalign is the ideal alternative to metal braces for those who want their tooth-straightening treatment to remain inconspicuous. Painless and convenient, Invisalign retains are even removable for special occasions and for cleaning purposes.
Veneers are made from composite laminates or porcelain and are bonded to the surface of the tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks. They improve discolored or worn teeth and make your smile look flawless. Veneers are the ideal solution for anyone with gaps between their teeth or who have been unable to achieve the results they desire with traditional teeth whitening processes, and as they are very versatile, they conceal all kinds of flaws.
If you have missing teeth due to an accident or disease, or if you have had tooth extractions, dental implants are an ideal solution. Missing teeth cause the face to collapse and look older, however implants are an artificial replacement for the root and tooth, restoring a more youthful facial appearance giving you a better smile. Dental implants are fitted permanently into your jaw and are therefore more comfortable and effective than dentures. They also look natural, and are almost completely indistinguishable from your own teeth.
Composite Or Porcelain Fillings
While fillings are generally categorized as a restorative treatment, today’s modern composite and porcelain fillings have a very natural appearance and are able to improve the appearance of your smile compared to standard amalgam fillings. It’s possible to replace old fillings with composite or porcelain materials or remove decay and restore damaged teeth to give you a strong biting and chewing surface which is durable and which will look almost identical to your existing natural teeth.
Although crowns are often categorized as a restorative treatment, modern porcelain crowns are sometimes considered to be a cosmetic dental treatment as their natural appearance blends seamlessly with your natural teeth to give a more attractive look. Crowns repair decayed or damaged teeth, fitting over the tooth to protect it from more damage and maintain its structure.
