Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Tooth Whitening – Cosmetic Veneers – Lumineers
Every day more and more people are having their smiles transformed to enhance their overall appearance and as a result boosting their confidence.
First impressions mean everything and the use of these modern techniques can transform your appearance. Cosmetic dental treatments can enable you to have a smile to be proud of.
Enlighten – Extreme Tooth Whitening
The gleaming white smile we once enjoyed to show gradually fades as our teeth naturally darken over time due to day-to-day living. As time goes by some of us come to prefer to hide our smiles. Enlighten whitening can lighten your teeth up to 16 shades restoring a youthful brighter smile.
This new innovative dentist lead home whitening procedure is a combination treatment, involving a two week home treatment followed by a one hour visit in surgery with your dentist.
The thin and comfortable bleach trays will be tailor made for you, you will be required to wear them for 14 nights. On the 15th day you will return to your dentist for the second part of the treatment which takes 40 minutes.
The procedure requires home maintenance, requiring you to wear the trays one night every other month. The treatment will only lighten natural tooth tissue, therefore porcelain or composite restorations such as crowns or tooth coloured fillings will often need replacing once the treatment is complete to match to the final result.
Lumineers are an ultra-thin veneer of a unique porcelain called Cerinate which creates a beautiful smile through non-invasive means.
However some slight removal of non-sensitive tooth may be required. Fortunately this can be carried out painlessly without the need for anaesthetics. The process is fully reversible and the Lumineers can be removed at anytime.
They are used to increase the smile aesthetics dramatically providing a symmetrical pleasing smile.
Lumineers have a lifetime limited warranty which protects against product defects. The warranty requires regular checkups and cleanings. All finished cases of Lumineers are provided with a validation certificate.
Before and After
Alternative to Braces
Veneers are a modern solution to restore fractured, discoloured, crooked and badly worn teeth
It is also possible to close spaces known as diastemas to produce a more uniform smile. Veneers are also often used to rectify any defects and protect eroded enamel to prevent further deterioration.
Unlike crowns veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth, they are wafer thin shells of porcelain hand crafted by a highly experience technician, the veneers are cemented to front teeth to improve the appearance into a brand new straighter whiter smile. Veneers can be beautifully shade matched and characteristics of your natural teeth can be reproduced for natural results.
