Your Comprehensive Guide To Cosmetic Dentistry In 2023
Posted on 28th December 2022 at 11:20
From recontouring to composite bonding, teeth whitening and proper porcelain veneers. Our cosmetic procedures can repair teeth that are discoloured, stained, chipped, fractured, gapped, crooked or misaligned.
Over time, it's very natural for teeth to become dull, stained, and uneven from everyday use. Let us bring the sparkle back and rejuvenate your smile. Here's our comprehensive guide to cosmetic dentistry to enhance your smile in 2023:
Braces: While orthodontic treatment doesn't usually fall under cosmetic dentistry, braces can improve the overall alignment and appearance of your teeth and is often a fundamental part of many cosmetic treatment plans. We offer Invisalign, short-term braces, clear braces, hidden and fixed braces. These treatments can help straighten and align your teeth for an attractive, well-functioning, healthy smile.
Recontouring: We can reshape the edges of your teeth to give them a more even, symmetrical appearance. At your consultation, we'll take x-rays to ensure you have enough enamel on your teeth to reshape them. We'll then use a gentle sanding technique to smooth out imperfections and create a neater shape. This simple treatment is entirely painless and only requires one visit.
Composite Bonding: Composite bonding, also called dental bonding, involves using tooth-coloured composite resin to repair and improve the appearance of a tooth. The composite resin is lightly layered onto your tooth and then cured and shaped under a special light. Your tooth is then polished to match the surrounding teeth, making it look natural and aesthetic. Composite bonding can repair chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. We can also use it to widen or elongate your teeth or whiten them. Composite bonding is less expensive than veneers because it is a simpler procedure that can be completed in one visit. It can also be reversible, so long as no enamel has been removed before layering the resin.
Veneers: Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of porcelain or ceramic material attached to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are used to cover up flaws such as chips, cracks, stains, or gaps. Veneers can also be colour-matched to your surrounding teeth for a natural look. We recommend teeth whitening before getting veneers if you want a brighter smile. Keep in mind that this is an irreversible procedure, as your natural teeth must be prepared before we can secure the veneers. Nonetheless, porcelain veneers are more durable than composite bonding, as porcelain is a stronger and more resilient material. Veneers can be made very natural, but also amazingly “perfect”, giving “wow” results everyone will be talking about. Speak to our team about what you really want.
Both composite bonding and veneers are effective treatments in improving the outer appearance of your teeth, and the most suitable option for you will depend on your specific needs and the condition of your teeth. We can help determine the best course of treatment during an initial consultation, where we will assess your teeth and discuss your smile goals.
Teeth Whitening Treatment: Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. It can remove stains caused by food, drink, and smoking. Our safe whitening agents can also penetrate deep into the porous tissue (dentin) to whiten from within. Our preferred choice is at-home teeth whitening using a tailor-made, clear gum shield that holds the whitening solution against your teeth while you sleep. With this method, you can expect to see results in just a few weeks. If you want a more dramatic, showy transformation, veneers might be better than teeth whitening.
If you’re looking to repair or replace your natural teeth, we also provide crowns, bridges and dental implants.
