Cosmetic dentistry is all about enhancing the teeth.Using tooth-coloured filling materials and crowns, we can improve the shape, condition and colour of your teeth and molars.
The options for cosmetic dentistry include:
- Replacement of old fillings
We can easily replace fillings which have been discoloured
- Changing of colour
By the careful use of composite (a tooth-coloured restorative material) in the correct colour, we can adapt your tooth to the desired colour, for example if you suffer from an enamel disorder or a dead tooth.
- Change in shape
If you don’t like the shape of one or more of your teeth, we can change the shape using composite (a tooth-coloured restorative material).
- Change of orientation
We use facings to change the orientation of your teeth. These are small composite or porcelain shields which are fitted over the existing tooth or teeth. You can also change the colour and/or shape.
- Porcelain crowns
Sometimes teeth require a great deal of restoration. In that case it is no longer possible to fit a facing. A porcelain crown is the solution. It is completely indistinguishable from a real tooth and has a very natural colour.
