Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth. One of the easiest ways to improve your smile is teeth whitening. Teeth vary in colour, some appearing more yellow though they are quite healthy. Teeth tend to naturally darken with age and this is increased by things like smoking, red wine, tea and coffee. A root-filled or dead tooth may also look much darker than normal or adjacent teeth.. Teeth can now be lightened in shade, perfectly safely. Another way to improve your smile is veneers.
These are a popular treatment and have advanced hugely in last decade. Individually hand created by my technician these can be produced to very thin sections allowing correction of colour and position of teeth (to a certain extent). Veneers fit perfectly over the surface of your own teeth correcting or recreating a perfect smile. Veneers are either made of porcelain (requiring at least 2 visits) or composite (sometimes requiring just one visit). Only minimal, or no, preparation of the teeth is required in order to gain significant improvement of the aesthetics.
