True beauty is a confident smile
Your smile is one of the most beautiful statements you can make. It communicates volumes without words and has the power to make someone’s day.

However, it can also be how you are judged by others, and even more so by yourself. Feeling a lack of self-confidence because of how your crooked, discoloured or misshapen teeth look can impact how you present yourself to the world. It can stop you putting yourself forward for that dream job or dream partner. It may be the reason no one has ever seen you smile on camera. Or it could be why you are still an Internet Zero when you dream of being an Internet Hero.

However you see your smile pulling you back in life, we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.

Aesthetic Dentistry offers many ways to straighten, whiten and brighten your smile, from a simple whitening procedure to a complete revamp with Hollywood glam porcelain veneers.

Take the first step to putting that beautiful smile back on your face. Book An Appointment with us today.

BONDING

Dental bonding is an alternative treatment to veneers to restore chipped, cracked, discoloured or misaligned teeth.

Your dentist will lightly etch the surface of your tooth and apply a bonding liquid. Once this is set, a plastic resin will be sculpted to the correct shape for your tooth. When the resin sets, your dentist will finally trim, smoothen and polish the tooth to give it a natural appearance.

The procedure can usually be completed in one visit.
Your bonded tooth is more likely to stain and chip as the resin used to restore it is not as strong as your natural teeth. You can expect to return for bonding repair in three to five years.

VENEERS

Dental veneers are thin ceramic layers shaped to look like the front of your teeth and bonded to the surface of the fronts of your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
The aim of dental veneers is to improve the look of your teeth and give them a straight, white and nicely shaped veneer that acts as a cosmetic improvement from your natural teeth. Each veneer will be designed to match the area of each tooth so that it sits well and looks natural.
Dental veneers are very resistant to coffee, tea, wine and nicotine stains and will remain white much more easily than natural teeth. As long as you use your teeth for activities they are intended for, like chewing, and don’t use them as tools to prize off bottle caps and the like, they should remain intact and maintain their healthy appearance.
If you look after them and take care of them as instructed, they should last you for at least 10 years. Should you accidentally break one, come back for a replacement of that single veneer.

TEETH WHITENING

Teeth whitening is a quick, safe and affordable procedure that bleaches the enamel surface of your teeth to restore its whiteness.
Teeth whitening is used to correct tooth discolouration caused by staining, ageing and chemical damage. Your dentist will advise you if teeth whitening will work on your teeth. If the discolouration is too extreme, you may be recommended veneers or crowns instead.
Let us know which teeth you want whitened. This can be all of them or just the top front or bottom front. It depends which teeth you show when you talk and smile. You can opt for one of two ways to whiten your teeth:
  • Our in-clinic service where the treatment will be administered in the chair and you can leave with significantly whiter teeth.
  • Take home teeth-whitening kit. Your dentist will take an impression to make a customised mouthguard used to hold the bleach against the teeth. Once this is ready, you will be given the mouthguard and a bleaching agent to take home. Wear the guard for about 3-4 hours every night and in two weeks you will have a dazzling smile.
You only need to give your teeth an occasional repeat treatment when you notice they have started to stain again.
The treatment is applied for a very short time so will not alter your tooth structure or damage your enamel.
Even though these can be bought from pharmacies, they can harm your teeth and gums, so you are strongly advised to consult a dentist for safe teeth whitening.

BRACES

Braces are devices that align and straighten teeth and help correct a person’s bite. They are usually permanently fitted for a number of years.

Braces can help to correct dental and jaw irregularities such as misaligned teeth, malocclusions (teeth positioned the wrong way) and over- or under-bites.
Typically, the process of correcting alignment takes two to three years and you need to return regularly to have the braces tightened and so that your dentist can monitor progress. Once your braces are removed, you will be asked to wear removable retainers (clear guards) to keep your teeth in position. You can gradually reduce the time you wear these as instructed by your dentist.
Due to the length of treatment, braces are a costly procedure, so we do offer a payment plan to allow you to spread the cost over time.

INVISALIGN

Invisalign is a set of removable clear aligners designed to gradually align your teeth without the need for permanent braces. As their name suggests, they are virtually invisible.
These clear aligners can be removed so that you can eat at mealtimes and clean your teeth as normal. This allows you to maintain good dental hygiene and reduce the possibility of bad breath or decay. Just keep them in when you are not eating or brushing. Because the projected movement of your teeth is calculated using a digital programme, your dentist will be able to give you an exact timeline for treatment, unlike with braces.
Invisalign can correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, gaps in teeth, crowded teeth and can straighten the alignment of individual teeth.
Your dentist will take a digital image scan of your teeth and plan the course of treatment with customised digital technology. Your aligners will be made to fit your teeth and you will change to a new set every two weeks. You will return to your dentist every six to eight weeks so that your dentist can monitor progress.
