Cosmetic dentistry

Increase your options

Look in the mirror and smile. Is there anything you would like to change about the appearance of your teeth? There are many dental techniques to help you feel good about your smile.

  • Veneers – are thin slices of porcelain which are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail.
  • White fillings and inlays – new dental materials mean that it is much easier to find a perfect match for the shade of a particular tooth; in most cases, it is quite impossible to see that the tooth even has a filling.
  • Crowns and bridges – there are several ways to replace missing or badly damaged teeth, using materials that mimic your own teeth.
  • Reshaping teeth – often the simple reshaping of a tooth can make a world of difference to your smile.
  • Aesthetic dentures – not only can we provide dentures that include replacement teeth; we can also match the gum shade to your own gums to give a realistic finish.
  • Gum health – healthy gums look great and add impact to your smile.

What to expect
Your first visit
  • You will be welcomed by a team member at reception. We will ensure that all your personal details are correct.
  • If you haven't already done so, you will need to fill out a few forms such as a medical history and a patient questionnaire. Once these are completed, you will be ready to see the dentist.
  • You will be shown to the treatment room where you will meet more members of our team.
  • This is your time and you will have the opportunity to ask your dentist any questions that you may have.
  • The dentist will then carry out a tooth-by-tooth examination of your mouth, including an oral cancer screening, a gum examination and an assessment of your jaw joints. We will also take X-rays and photos of your teeth if necessary.
  • Once this has all been completed, you and your dentist will have the opportunity to discuss your treatment options.
  • The final step is to book further recommended appointments at reception.
Remember - we take time to get to know you and your teeth. Please ask any questions you may have or get in touch after your appointment to check any details.
