If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a perfect appearance with minimum tooth adjustment. Porcelain veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong permanent bond very little preparation of the tooth is required. Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth and can also be used to close small gaps, when braces are not suitable.
A crown is a permanent restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance: to improve the appearance of a heavily restored tooth, to strengthen root filled teeth or to help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
A dental bridge is usually used to replace smaller numbers of missing teeth, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth. You should replace missing teeth for a number of reasons. Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth at either side.
Spaces that are left may result in tilting or drifting of adjacent teeth. This reduces the function of the teeth and causes food trapping and decay.
Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Professional Home Tooth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth.
We perform home tooth whitening where a custom made mouth tray is created. A whitening gel is placed in the tray which you then wear whilst asleep or for short periods during the day. Results are normally seen over 2 weeks or for patients wanting a more immediate result we also provide chairside laser whitening
We use the latest technology and the most advanced light and chemical activated tooth whitening system which takes about an hour to complete. The chairside gel is painted over your teeth and it is then light activated by power lamp for 10 minutes. After the first cycle, the gel is removed, and this process is repeated twice. This treatment achieves an average of 8 shades improvement.
