Cosmetic dentistry has made huge advances in recent years, as modern techniques and technology enable us to change the way we look.
Dr Marshall and Dr Aston take an active interest in keeping up-to-date with education and any changes. They enjoy providing cosmetic treatments to patients and find their results are extremely rewarding. To ensure long term health, it is important that cosmetic treatment is only carried out after excellent oral health has been achieved.
Veneers can be used to straighten or change the shape of teeth and hide discolouration and staining. This treatment is often completed in as little as two appointments.
Normally, the dentist will remove a small amount of tooth and place temporary veneers at the first visit. The permanent veneers, which are made of porcelain, are bonded to the teeth at the second visit.
The cosmetic improvement is often quite remarkable.
This technique involves bonding material directly onto the tooth surface and is used to improve the appearance and alignment of your teeth. This is done in one visit and is completely pain free.
These are a metal-free alternative to dental amalgam and are easier to match to the shade of a particular tooth. In most cases, it is impossible to see you have had a filling.
Crowns are used to cover and strengthen teeth that have broken or are heavily restored. They can dramatically improve your appearance. Several different kinds of crown exist, please ask your dentist for further information.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Some bridges can be placed with very minimal tooth preparation, while others may require a more complex procedure.
Inlays and onlays
These are used to restore teeth that are broken, decayed or worn. They are constructed at the dental laboratory and adhesive is used to fix them to the tooth.
A full range of cosmetic dentures are available. We may be able to dramatically improve your smile, so please ask for further information.
Tooth whitening is used to enhance the colour of your teeth, with results being visible to all customers who have had the treatment.
