Cosmetic Dentistry is the ultimate mixture of art and dental science. These procedures endeavour to create beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smiles; utilising the latest restorative technologies and materials.

Cosmetic dentistry treatment has the power to enhance your smile and even your confidence.

The major benefits of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Improved oral health and general well-being
  • Improved facial appearance
  • Improved comfort
  • Improved speech

The cosmetic treatments that are available today can be used to enhance practically any smile. The only requirement we must make sure of before beginning cosmetic treatment is ensuring that your smile is healthy and free of disease and other problems.

Tooth whitening is probably the most popular cosmetic procedure available today. This is the case as tooth whitening can be the quickest, most effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile. Tooth whitening can transform the effects of aging and discolouration by lightening the teeth 8 to 10 shades within just one consultation.

  • Rejuvenate discoloured / stained teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Reduce the over-crowded nature of teeth
  • Straighten overlapping or crooked teeth
  • Cover chips
  • Conceal blemishes
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Repair breakages
  • Replace Amalgam Fillings with Tooth-coloured Restorations
  • Gum Re-contouring for gummy smiles

Maintaining your teeth and gums as you age is an important step in sustaining your general health and well-being. Whilst exercising, eating right and regular health checks are important – looking after your teeth and gums is also essential. Good dental health will help lead you to a long, happy and healthy life.

Routine visits to your dentist are of paramount importance. By visiting your dentist every 6 months for a thorough examination and clean, you will enable them to detect any dental problems early and limit the extent of the problem. It is also essential to brush at least twice each day (after breakfast and dinner) and floss once a day. This will help to prevent decay and gum disease. Speak with your dentist during your next visit, for more information on preventive care and hygiene.

If your teeth become damaged, lost or simply worn over time, there are a number of options available to treat these problems.

If teeth are lost, then implants, dentures or bridges may be an option for you. If a tooth needs rebuilding, then crowns, inlays or onlays could be the solution. For cosmetic changes, tooth whitening, veneers and bonding are amongst some of the treatments that you could consider.

Teeth may seem to darken as plaque can build up faster and in larger amounts as we age. Staining from coffee, tea, soft drinks, certain medications and smoking can also occur. Changes in dentine may cause teeth to appear a little darker as well.

Proper dental care should begin before your child’s first tooth appears. It is important to remember that just because their teeth are not seen, doesn’t mean they are not there. At birth your baby has 20 primary teeth, some of which are fully developed in the jaw.

Running a damp washcloth over your baby’s gums following feedings can prevent build-up of damaging bacteria. Once your child has a few teeth showing, you can brush them with a soft child’s toothbrush or rub them with gauze at the end of the day.
