Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the use of tooth coloured filling material and in particular dental porcelain to improve the appearance of your smile. It may involve tooth coloured fillings, veneers, inlays, crowns, bridges and implants. Additional procedures such as crown lengthening and orthodontics can also assist in achieving a desirable result.

How is it done?
After finding out what your expectations are and the dentist has reviewed all aspects, a recommendation is made. Then the procedures and treatments are planned out according to what is being done.

Risks involved:
There is always a risk with cosmetic services that your expectation won’t be fully satisfied. To contribute to a desired result it is very important to communicate your expectations as clearly as possible, using pictures and other helpful aids. We take great care in ensuring you are fully aware of all aspects of treatments offered in order for you to make well-informed choices.

Life expectancy:
Differs according to what procedures are completed. The life of any dental restoration is lengthened with diligent home care maintenance.

Maintenance:
Conscientious home care including brushing every morning and night, flossing once a day and regular six monthly check ups to review the work.

Cost:
The cost is dependent on procedures required.

Each situation is different though and further costs can be incurred, therefore for an accurate quotation, a consultation with the dentist is recommended.
