Cosmetic Dentistry

The aim of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the overall appearance of the teeth, this may be as simple as replacing a few silver fillings or it could involve changing the colour of the teeth, moving them into a better position, masking or replacing damaged teeth, or a combination of a few of these treatments.

Cosmetic Dentistry can improve the following:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Discoloured fillings

We have a range of different treatments available, if there is something you’re interested in or if you would like advice on how to improve something your not happy with, please contact us to request a free cosmetic consultation so that we can give you an idea of what may be possible for you.

All Cosmetic dentistry starts with well maintained gum health, as gums provide the foundations for any work we have on our teeth. It may therefore be necessary for patients to address any underlying issues with their oral health before any cosmetic work can begin.
