Crooked, stained or chipped teeth are often easily fixed with cosmetic dentistry.
Your National Dental Care dentist can help with:
There are many options on the National Dental Care teeth whitening menu. For best results and minimum side-effects, it is best if your teeth are healthy and your dentist, therapist or hygienist have advised that you can safely whiten. This is why it is important to have a comprehensive full mouth dental examination before you begin the teeth whitening process. Once that is done, you can choose from pre-fabricated over the counter teeth whitening kits, custom-made take home teeth whitening kits, in –office teeth whitening treatment or a combination option. It will depend on your individual circumstances which teeth whitening option is best for you. Results may vary from subtle to dramatic, so speak with your dentist, therapist or hygienist about your expectations of teeth whitening treatment.
- Replacement of unsightly old silver fillings with white fillings
Your National Dental Care dentist can replace your old amalgam (silver) fillings with materials that more closely match the colour and appearance of your teeth, giving you the confidence to smile again.
Discoloured, heavily filled or internally stained teeth can be masked with ceramic facings/veneers or crowns. Talk to your dentist about the best course of treatment for your concern.
Missing teeth can be replaced by the use of ceramic teeth/pontics, fused to two crowns on either side of the pontic. These crowns are fitted over the adjacent teeth. There are many options for replacing missing teeth, your National Dental Care dentist will be able to discuss these with you in more detail.
Direct resin veneers can be very useful in cosmetic cases, where minor improvements of otherwise healthy teeth are required or ceramic veneers are not an option. They can be used for closing large gaps between teeth or covering damaged areas of enamel.
- Tooth reshaping
Minor reshaping of teeth can improve the symmetry of your smile and teeth proportions. It is a relatively non invasive and painless procedure.
- Cosmetic teeth re-alignment with the help of braces or clear aligners, like InvisalignTM, Clear Correct or SmileFast.
Teeth re-alignment does not require removal of any tooth structure, so it is perfect for crooked, but otherwise healthy, intact teeth. It can also be done in conjunction with more invasive restorative treatment like crowns or veneers, to ensure best results.
