From achieving a perfect smile with Veneers to straightening your teeth with Invisalign® treatment, read on to discover the cosmetic dentistry options available at your local practice - and find out how easy it is to transform your smile in 2021.
Lighten Up With Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional Teeth Whitening is a fast, safe and effective way of improving the colour and appearance of your teeth. This is a great option if you’re conscious about discolouration or yellowed teeth, which often occurs due to consumption of certain foods and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine, as well as smoking and some medications.
There are two main options when it comes to professional teeth whitening - in-chair whitening and take-home whitening.
In-chair teeth whitening
Our Zoom! in-chair teeth whitening brightens your teeth in as little as one hour, making it a fast and highly effective option. Zoom! offers fantastic whitening results in a short space of time and the results can last for months.
Most patients experience virtually no pain or sensitivity with Zoom!, but if you do experience discomfort in your teeth or gums after your appointment, you can call your dentist for advice.
Take-home teeth whitening kits
If you’re looking for a convenient way to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, our take-home kits are a great option. This involves custom dental trays and whitening gel that you apply according to your dentist’s instructions, and it generally takes around one to two weeks to achieve optimum results.
You can also choose the strength of the whitening solution based on your individual needs, and the gel comes in a variety of flavours to make the experience more pleasant.
Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth With Veneers
Veneers restore the front surface of your teeth by covering damage, discolouration, and minor misalignment. They can be an ideal way to completely transform your smile, leaving you with beautifully straight, white teeth.
The type of veneers you have will depend on your needs, preferences, and condition of your teeth. There are two main types of veneers:
Composite (Direct) Veneers
Affordable and quick to apply, composite veneers are the most popular option. They’re great for minor cosmetic issues, such as cracked or chipped teeth, and can also cover small gaps between teeth.
Porcelain (Indirect) Veneers
Similar to crowns, porcelain veneers are manufactured outside the mouth and may take a couple of appointments to install. These types of veneers are a better option for major cosmetic issues and teeth misalignment.
Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign®
If you’ve been dreaming of a straighter smile for a while, why not make 2021 the year you start Invisalign® treatment? This advanced teeth-straightening method uses clear, custom-moulded aligners to gradually move your teeth into their ideal position.
The virtually-invisible aligners can be easily removed for activities like eating and drinking, as well as being comfortable to wear and generally faster-acting than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign® can treat a wide range of cases and bite types, including the following:
Open bite: Upper and lower teeth don’t touch when the mouth is closed.
Cross bite: A tooth in the lower arch is positioned to the outside of the upper teeth.
Crowded: Too many teeth to fit the jaw, causing misalignment.
Underbite: Lower teeth protrude in front of upper teeth.
Overbite: Upper teeth overlap lower teeth.
Gappy: Too much space or gaps between teeth.
