Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Inlays and Onlays: Made in a dental lab either from porcelain or composite material before being bonded to a tooth, inlays and onlays provide a filling to a tooth that is too decayed or damaged to support a direct restoration such as amalgam or composite.
Composite Bonding: One of the simplest and less expensive cosmetic dental procedures available. Composite bonding is when the dental material known as a composite resin is shaped and moulded to your teeth, to give you an excellent straight white smile. It’s commonly used to treat minor chipped teeth, gaps, and staining in teeth. The procedure is very quick and simple and can be completed in one appointment with the dentist.
Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are custom-made from porcelain or resin composite which is bonded to the surfaces of your front teeth, To prepare your teeth for your new dental veneers, we start by gently sanding them to remove small amounts of surface material, making sure your comfortable by providing you with local anaesthetic.
Dental Crowns: Also referred to as caps, a crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over the tooth to improve its natural look. They are used for the safeguard of a weak tooth that has endured extensive decay, or to hold a fractured tooth together. A dental crown can also recover a tooth that has been broken and support a tooth that has a large filling but not enough natural tooth left to hold the filling solidly. Crowns are made of several different components each with its own benefits and price range. The components available for crowns are porcelain, steel, metals like gold alloy and nickel, fused to metal, all resin, all-ceramic, or all porcelain. Dental crowns tend to be pricey, so dentist usually only recommend them when other procedures are unlikely to produce adequate results. With proper care, dental crowns last for many years
Smile Makeover: A smile makeover is when you are given one or more cosmetic treatments that help to improve your smile. A combination of veneers, implants, whitening, or any of the other procedures listed above would be considered a smile makeover.
