Dentistry always had oral health and functionality as its primary directives. In the last years developments in techniques and technology have allowed the dental industry to begin focusing on the delivery of some truly beautiful aesthetic work without compromising on the principles of health and functionality. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth and smile. Cosmetic dentistry treatments currently in use, include:
- Composite veneers and fillings
It is a technique that we use for small touch ups of teeth that are slightly discoloured, cracked or chipped. The treatment not only improves the look of the teeth but also strengthens them. Composite resin is used that resembles tooth enamel.
- Porcelain veneers
Veneers are very thin porcelain ‘shells’ that are bounded onto the front surface of the natural teeth. They are used to either protect slightly damaged teeth )worn, chipped or even broken) or to improve teeth).
- All-ceramic crowns
The all-ceramic crowns are made purely from ceramic and no other material. They are made from a translucent material so they look and function just like normal teeth.
- Teeth whitening
Our teeth are exposed to a wide range of stain producing food, colorants on a daily basis (coffee, tea, red wine, chocolate, … ). Teeth whitening is an easy way to fight back any discoloration. We can offer two ways of brightening your smile:
- A take home option using bleaching trays
- The professional whitening in office using the ZOOM light.
- Smile Makeover
If for any reason your smile is not satisfying you there are many different ways in which you can improve it, by using the modern methods of cosmetic dentistry. A Smile Makeover combines the benefits of several treatment techniques to produce a dramatic improvement in somebody’s smile. A Smile Makeover may include the use of composite veneers, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental bridges etc. So, with cosmetic dentistry we can:
- Whiten the teeth
- Replace one or more missing teeth
- Reduce the gap between teeth
- Change the shape and the size of the teeth
- Replace old metal fillings
- Change the color or discoloration of the teeth
Changing your smile for something better makes you feel more attractive and secure.
