With modern dental technology and materials, restorations such as fillings, crowns and bridges can often be indistinguishable from natural teeth.
It is also possible to improve the appearance of natural teeth with restorative techniques, sometimes with dramatic and rapid results. Our philosophy however, is that the maintenance of a healthy and functional dentition for life should be the priority.
When contemplating cosmetic dentistry, it is important to be aware of the future likelihood of needing to repair and replace restorations together with any possible complications which may result.
With this in mind, we adopt a long term view when planning cosmetic treatment and aim to provide reliable, durable dentistry by the least invasive technique.
Many cosmetic dental procedures are minimally invasive and can improve a smile without sacrificing health or function.

Modern composites and porcelain materials are often an excellent alternative to metal fillings and metal-ceramic crowns.
Our preferred technique for tooth whitening involves the use of uses custom made trays to gradually improve the appearance of your teeth over a few days.
Professional whitening carried out under the supervision of your dentist is a safe and effective way of improving the appearance of natural teeth.
The low concentration materials we use are supported by many years of research and have been demonstrated to reliably white teeth without damage. The process can be controlled to produce the desired shade without over-bleaching teeth.
It is normal to experience some sensitivity during whitening, however this ceases once treatment is completed.
