    Have a read below to find out more about some of the treatments we offer here at the practice which can transform your smile

    Porcelain crowns

    Porcelain crowns are made of natural looking porcelain can improve your overall smile and blend in with your own teeth.  They are the perfect restoration if your teeth are damaged, decayed or are not aesthetically pleasing.  Crowns can strengthen the remaining natural tooth structure and can drastically improve the look of your teeth

    Veneers

    Porcelain veneers can provide the lasting result of a smile makeover.  They can improve the look of crooked, uneven teeth and can create the illusion of a beautiful, straight, natural smile.

    Veneers require a minimum amount of tooth reduction and are therefore a more conservative restoration than a crown.  Having veneers means you can alter the position, shape or colour of the teeth and can make a dramatic difference to your smile and self-esteem.

    Implants

    If you have to replace a missing tooth or have dentures, dental implants could be an option for you.

    A dental implant acts as an artificial root for a missing tooth and is made of titanium.  It is placed in your mouth and bonds with your jaw bone becoming strong and secure like the real root of a tooth.  Once the implant is securely fixed, a crown is secure on top of the implant.

    The treatment is responsible for easing the suffering of tooth loss in thousands of patients every day.  The treatment is reliable and effective and not only restores smiles but can improve quality of life.

    C-Fast

    C-Fast is cosmetic tooth alignment for adults and focuses on your front 6 teeth in your smile line.  The treatment is fast, discreet, affordable and has amazing results in as little as 3-6 months.  Using tooth coloured wire and clear brackets it gently straightens your teeth to you a beautiful, healthy smile.

  3. Overview of Cosmetic dentistry procedures

    A1 2

    Studies have shown that the appearance of your teeth can have a great effect on your self-confidence. Cosmetic dental treatments can be defined as those treatments that can correct and improve the appearance of your teeth, particularly the teeth on show when you smile.

    The appearance of your teeth can be affected by their colour, their alignment, their shape and the position of the gum line. If any one or a combination of some of the above is a factor in the appearance of your smile, there is always a cosmetic dental procedure that can correct them.

    The most common concern for many people is the colour of their teeth. Teeth can darken or yellow with time and this is often a result of exposure to foods and drinks that stain the enamel. Examples may include red wine, tea and coffee. Smoking may also cause your teeth to darken. Thankfully, teeth can be easily whitened using specially formulated bleaching gels. These are applied to your teeth in a custom made thin gum shield which can be worn during sleep. In many cases it takes only two weeks to lighten your teeth to a youthful and vibrant colour.

    If your teeth are crowded, crooked or misaligned, they can be straightened suing a variety of appliances. Traditionally braces would have to have been worn often for 18 months to 2 years. Where the back teeth are poorly aligned and the bite is poor, traditional orthodontic braces may still be a good option. In many cases however, it is only the front 6 or 8 teeth that require straightening to improve your smile. Treatments such as Cfast ™ can straighten your front with barely noticeable appliances in only six months.

    If the shape of your teeth has suffered from tooth wear or breakages, it is nearly always possible to restore the teeth to their original anatomical shape. If the changes needed are small, it may only take the bonding of some white composite filling material to restore the shape. Where there has been more considerable tooth loss, porcelain crowns or veneers can be made and fitted to the teeth.

    Whatever your cosmetic dental concerns are, you should always feel free to talk to your dentist and discuss what treatment will be best suited to your problems.
