Ask us about cosmetic dentistry, we have all the options you need!

Some people are lucky enough to be born with a perfect set of pearly white teeth, but most of us have some issues we wish we could fix concerning the appearance of our teeth. It could be that they are a bit too yellow, are crooked, that they have chipped in the swimming pool during childhood, or that we are just generally unhappy about the state of our smile and wish we could do something about it. Cosmetic dentistry is the solution to all these problems.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

It is a grouping of many different treatments and techniques that can help to whiten, straighten, restore and even improve the looks of individual teeth and the smile as a whole!

It is important to remember that cosmetic dentistry treatments are elective. We believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and as such do not prescribe these treatments unless the patient has expressed an interest or asked about the options. Once the topic of cosmetic dentistry is raised, we are happy to go through all of the options and discuss the pros and cons of each with the patient. We believe in informed consent and encourage our patient to ask questions and be involved in the process, to ensure they chose the right option for them, and ensure their satisfaction at the end of the treatment.

Why is cosmetic dentistry important?

Yellow teeth. Most teeth tend to turn more yellowish with age and due to natural wear, smoking, tea, coffee and other lifestyle choices. There are different types of whitening; in office whitening like the Zoom whitening, or home whitening; where trays with whitening gels are worn during the daytime or at night.

Teeth straightening. Crooked or malaligned teeth can benefit from some form of orthodontics to align them and thus improve the smile. As with all parts of the body, teeth can change over time and an increased crowding of the teeth is usually noticed with age. There are many options for teeth straightening, including but not limited to braces, metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, Invisalign and Inman aligners. See our orthodontics section for a more comprehensive overview.

Bonding / fillings. When minor chipping of the front teeth occurs, white composite fillings can be an easy and cost effective solution to repair the teeth and thus restore them to their original shape and size.

Veneers. As the name suggests, they are a very thin layer of composite or ceramic/porcelain that are bonded onto the front surface of the teeth to give a new look to the teeth by changing the colour and/or size and shape of the teeth. They can be done to single teeth if need be or to multiple teeth, depending on the needs and wishes of the patient. They are very strong and last for a long time if done properly.

Hollywood smile. Used to describe a smile makeover that can include any or all of the above mentioned treatments. This treatment is custom made to suit each patient and uses state of the art technology to diagnose, design and make a new smile. Digital scans, digital models, digital designs, digital mockups and finally a new 3D printed smile can be done using a DSD (digital smile design).
