Once upon a time, cosmetic dental treatment was the preserve of the rich and famous. Nowadays things have changed and more and more people are opting to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smile. If you’re unhappy with how your teeth or gums look, read on, for a “Hollywood smile” may be easier to achieve than you ever imagined.
The term “cosmetic dentistry” covers a wide range of treatments that focus on improving the appearance of your smile. Did you know that your smile is the first thing many people notice about you? If you don’t like the way your smile looks, you may well hide it away, covering your mouth with your hands or even not smiling in public at all. At Meadowbank Dental Practice, our skilled cosmetic dental team can help to change that.
Every smile is as individual as the face it’s part of, which is why when we recommend a cosmetic dental treatment we’ll take your whole face into account, to ensure you get the beautiful, natural-looking results you want. Whether you have ideas about a particular treatment, have a specific issue you are unhappy about, or just generally want to improve your smile, the first step is to come and see us for a cosmetic dental consultation.
Depending on your individual needs and wants, some of the treatments we may recommend include:
Using special bleaching gels, your teeth are gently brightened, removing stains and restoring a natural, healthy, whiter colour. Teeth whitening should only be carried out by a dental professional.
Veneers are thin slivers of porcelain placed over the front teeth to improve their appearance, hide stains and discolouration, close up small gaps and cover chipped or slightly crooked teeth.
White fillings can be used to repair decayed teeth and can also replace grey metal amalgam fillings. They blend naturally into your teeth so nobody will know they are there.
Inlays and onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to restore decayed teeth. Inlays sit in the cavity while onlays are placed on top. Made of porcelain, they are matched closely to the natural colour of your teeth.
