Cosmetic Dentistry

When it comes to providing truly worthwhile and satisfying treatment for adults, cosmetic (aesthetic) dentistry is what I really enjoy. I have been taking a special interest in this since 1994 and now nearly all of our new enquiries are for some form of cosmetic treatement.

The decision to improve your smile is a highly personal one. Some people would say that it is vanity, others say that it is a desire for someone to look their best. Take a look at the case below. . .

There are many different types of cosmetic treatment available including tooth whitening, tooth coloured fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges. Every case is unique and because we have an excellent working relationship with our technicians we are able to devote a great deal of attention to detail – rather like dress making.

If you are interested in having cosmetic dental treatment then the following sequence is what you can probably expect . . .

1. Initial Consultation. Examination. Discussion. X-rays. Photographs. Impressions of your teeth taken. No commitment, at this stage, to go ahead.

2. Inspect the “prediction” models and see if they look like the sort of result you want. Alterations can be made at this stage until the appearance is right. This is when you decide whether or not to go ahead.

Prediction Models

3. Preparation of your teeth under thorough local anaesthesia – this is where you are committed to treatment. Using a mould, specially prepared from the prediction model, we make temporary teeth which you wear until the laboratory work is finished – usually one week. The temporaries are very important because you get to see what the shape of the teeth are like – in your mouth. If necessary we can still make some small adjustments before the final work is completed – but the need to do this is very rare.

4. Final fit. In very rare cases we can still make adjustments but so much care has already been taken that this is very unlikely.

Before   After

In summary what we do is show you, as accurately as possible, what the finished result will look like before altering your teeth in any way. Then at the try-in stages we still have some room for alteration if required.

I stake my professional reputation on the quality of my work and I will do everything reasonably possible to make each patient happy. If my patients are happy my reputation grows.
