Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of teeth.
At Power Dental Practice we have been whitening peoples teeth for over 20 years.
There are two main types of whitening systems:
- In chair
- Take home
However, the darker the teeth and the older the person, better results come only by using BOTH take home and in chair. For this reason we choose to use Phillips Zoom! whitening in chair and are getting spectacular results. Contact us for more information about tooth whitening.
Orthodontic Straightening with Braces or Invisalign
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable thin plastic aligners that you change every 2 weeks for a new set. Click here for more details about this popular alternative to traditional braces.
Porcelain Veneers or Crowns
These will improve the colour, shape or spacing of your teeth.
They may be very useful for discoloured or heavily filled teeth, or where the spacing is very awkward. These may also be suitable in some cases where a person prefers not to have orthodontic straightening of their teeth.
In some cases patients may require some tooth reduction so that these laboratory fabricated restorations may be bonded to your teeth.
Gum Lift or Rejuvenation
A gum lift or rejuvenation repositions the gum up or down to improve the appearance. Where excessive gum covers the teeth, or where there is too little from gum recession, a more aesthetic result can be achieved by relocating it to where it ought to naturally be.
Other Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Other treatments may be required as part of a course of cosmetic dentistry including;
- Replacing old metal fillings with tooth-coloured restorations
- Replacing old, stained and discoloured fillings
Referrals can also be arranged for lip augmentation or muscle relaxants (Botox) with a cosmetic surgeon.
