Enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry in Edinburgh

Smiling is really important; however, most people are not born with perfect teeth. With the wide variety of affordable dental cosmetic treatments available today, there is no reason not to have the smile you want.

At Meadowbank Dental, we use cosmetic dentistry in Edinburgh to improve your appearance and confidence. Most of our cosmetic services can be completed in a visit to our dental practice. If yellow and stained teeth drag down your smile, maybe you should consider professional teeth whitening. If you are not happy with the shape and size of your teeth, then porcelain veneers can transform them completely. You can choose a treatment on its own or combine many treatments for a complete smile makeover. Our experienced dentist will examine your teeth and help you decide which treatment is best for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry in EdinburghTeeth whitening

A popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, teeth whitening is quick and affordable with predictable results. At Meadowbank Dental Practice we offer two whitening treatments: home tooth whitening and in-practice whitening. As we age, our teeth tend to become darker and more yellow. This is due to many factors, the most common of which include the natural deterioration of the tooth enamel, the consumption of caffeine and highly-pigmented foods and drinks as well as smoking.

If you opt for home teeth whitening in Edinburgh, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that your customised whitening trays can be made. Once they are ready, you will have to wear them along with the bleaching gel we provide you with. Usually, we recommend that you wear them for 45 minutes a day for two weeks or so. If you want to have your teeth whitened at the dental practice, we will use special laser technology to brighten your teeth by several shades in less than an hour. Treatments can also be combined, to achieve the best results.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. Each porcelain veneer is carefully designed and crafted to fit your smile. They can fix many imperfections such as chipped, cracked, discoloured, misaligned and misshapen teeth and are virtually undetectable for an incredibly natural, beautiful and long-lasting smile.
