TOOTH WHITENING & COSMETIC DENTISTRY

The perfect smile

Cosmetic dentistry is the general term used to denote any dental treatment that is aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth rather than correcting a clinical fault or disease process.

It can span the placement of a simple tooth-coloured filling to correct an isolated blemish, through to the re-positioning of teeth and soft tissues, or multiple crown and bridgework.

Cosmetic treatment for the visible teeth at the front of your mouth requires a good foundation of back teeth. As with many other niche areas in dentistry, it requires a range of special skills, a wide range of experience, and the use of excellent materials and equipment to achieve good results. We use an operating microscope for optimum vision while doing this delicate work. We use a nano-filled composite with a wide range of colours, allied to subtle techniques to make the margins of restorations invisible, and to create excellent and long-lasting results for you.

Tooth Whitening

Teeth tend to darken with age, and darkening of the teeth can itself be aging to our appearance. Lightening the colour of your teeth is relatively simple and can be very effective.

However, this next bit is important, so please read it carefully.

A few years ago I attended a seminar on tooth whitening at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
The main lecturer was from the States and he warned us that there was concern in America that Power Whitening, using strong bleaches and powerful lights to achieve a large increase in lightness in an hour or so in the dental chair, might cause internal problems with the teeth later in life.

He suggested that we followed his practice of using only lightening solutions of no more than 10% concentration, used for longer periods, and held against the teeth inside light, comfortable, closely fitting trays.

For that reason we have taken the decision not to use Power Whitening, and we only offer the treatment that he endorsed.

It has the advantages of being cheaper, and giving you the choice of the final colour that you want, plus the flexibility to start again and go lighter if you wish to at a later time.
