Cosmetic dentistry

A-list celebrity smiles are no longer exclusive to the stars. New technologies have made a beautiful smile more affordable and more attainable than ever before.

Visit the implant and cosmetic dental centre for a consultation and we can inform you about the range of cosmetic dental treatments available. We believe that having a great smile is as important to your positive self image as your health, fitness and well-being.

Stained or dull teeth can be dramatically improved by whitening, bleaching, home whitening, veneers, crowns or bonding. The reason why many people choose cosmetic dentistry instead of over-the-counter products such as whitening toothpaste and bleaching kits is that cosmetic dentistry offers longer-lasting results. Misshapen, chipped, or worn teeth can be improved by veneers, crowns, bonding, or cosmetic contouring.

Gaps between teeth can be closed up with veneers, crowns, bonding, or orthodontics. Old or unsightly fillings can be replaced with tooth-coloured fillings (resins and porcelain) for a natural appearance.Old or unsightly crowns can be replaced with ultimate all-ceramic crowns. Crooked or crowded teeth are improved with veneers, crowns, bonding, or orthodontics.

Teeth whitening

People who require a change to their natural tooth colour, because of a naturally darker colour or darkening with time, wear or staining, can have their teeth lightened.

The recommended method of tooth whitening is the Dental Home Bleaching done at home with trays like a gum shield, worn at night. The trays are designed specifically for your mouth and are extremely thin and unobtrusive. Harry Shiers has been treating patients successfully with this method for over 18 years.

Research shows that tooth whitening causes no harm to teeth or gums. The results can last for more than 3 years. After 3 years there is still a 70% improvement but you can keep topping it up with the home trays. You can buy more bleaching gel by contacting the dental centre and we can arrange for it to be sent to you.

There is no age restriction this procedure can be done on anybody. Tooth whitening will not work on crowned or veneered teeth. It doesn’t change the shade on crowned or veneered teeth so they may need to be replaced.

Invisible braces

If your teeth are crowded, gapped or your teeth have since moved back after wearing conventional braces, Invisalign® will give you a new reason to smile.

Invisalign is almost invisible which, makes it perfect for all ages, especially if you do not want the world to be aware that you are wearing braces. Because Invisalign is clear, unlike conventional braces, you do not feel the need to hide your smile during treatment.

As Invisalign is not a fixed wire, it can be removed during treatment which allows you to eat whichever food and drink you desire, without having to worry about staining! Studies have shown that patients who have had Invisalign treatment have had better dental hygiene during treatment as they are still able to floss.

The common treatment length is nine to eighteen months, but this can vary depending on the case.

Smile makeovers

The older we get we can feel that the appearance of our teeth is not as important as it once was, but why miss out on the benefits of a tremendous smile! The first thing you notice about a person is their smile, so why not make yours shine?

Using modern dental technology we can transform broken, uneven and discoloured teeth into a perfect natural smile, whether it be discoloured, chipped, missing teeth, we can turn it into a beautifully natural smile. For the best advice please have an initial consultation to discuss what you would like to improve.
