The ABC of Cosmetic Dentistry

To achieve the best results, it is important to keep invasive treatments to a minimum. Minimal intervention means the least possible amount of reshaping of your teeth, hence the greatest possible amount of your natural tooth structure is preserved, thus maintaining it’s health.

To achieve the most desirable and lifelike results I follow a very simple formula. This formula allows me to keep your teeth as healthy as possible while at the same time creating the smile you want.

Alignment

Before

After

Misaligned teeth are one of the most common complaints that patients have about their smile, so you are not alone if this is something that you would like to have fixed. If there are any crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth then these should first be straightened using one of a wide variety of methods ranging from invisible braces like “Invisalign” to fixed braces like “Six Month Smiles”.

Many issues such as a narrow smile or prominent and crowded teeth can be addressed with this alignment step and in many cases this is enough to satisfy the patient.

Bleaching

Before

After

Once alignment is complete the next step is to bleach or whiten the teeth back to their brightest and best. Over the years everything we eat, drink and smoke causes stains to penetrate the surface our teeth and cause the colour to become yellow and dull. Teeth whitening removes this accumulation of stain and restores the teeth to their brightest possible natural colour. This can completely lift your smile and give you your confidence back.

Correction

Before

After

The size and shape of the teeth can now be corrected using a combination of methods including composite bonding, ultra-thin porcelain veneers or ultra thin porcelain crowns.

Using this formula my team and I can create a smile which looks natural, vibrant and healthy and with proper care will stay that way for many years to come.
