Cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry', is used as a means of improving the appearance of teeth. Used to straighten, reshape, lighten and repair teeth, cosmetic dentistry should always aim to produce natural-looking results for patients.
Our wide range of effective cosmetic treatments can help you with your dis-coloured, worn, chipped or crooked teeth.
Typically consisting of a blend of different dental treatments and techniques, the goal of a smile makeover is to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. Following a discussion and thorough examination, we'll create you a bespoke Treatment Plan that's tailored to your unique needs.
Why would I need composite bonding?
What makes composite bonding such a requested treatment for many patients is its effectiveness for resolving a variety of cosmetic dental issues. There are alternatives out there, such as veneers and crowns, but composite bonding can benefit patients because it is a much simpler and much more cost-effective solution to those other treatments.
A patient may want to look more into composite bonding if they are struggling with chipped teeth, fractures, or other cosmetic improvement to the teeth. It is likely, if the damage is minor and easily fixed, that your dentist will recommend this treatment over more expensive treatments.
Composite bonding is the use of composite material that is then bonded to reshape, rebuild, or fill damaged teeth. It is a very simple cosmetic procedure, but it also has a huge amount of potential for different kinds of repairs. What is the treatment process?
The treatment itself is very simple, and it can normally be done in just one simple appointment with your dentist. It requires your dentist to first match the colour of the composite resin with the rest of your teeth. This will ensure that the smile will be consistent and look as natural as possible. The resin will then be placed onto the area required and moulded into the correct shape. The finishing touches will consist of curing the composite resin and refining the tooth further.
If you have chipped, cracked or dis-coloured teeth, porcelain dental veneers are the perfect way to mask and disguise imperfections. With beautiful,natural results, porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or white filling material(composite) made to fit over the front surface of teeth to correct worn out enamel,uneven alignment of the teeth, chips, dis-colouration, spacing or cracks and can sometimes provide a more conservative treatment than a crown.
Porcelain veneers function as a normal tooth when you eat. They are strong and durable enough to ensure you can continue to bite, chew and enjoy all your favourite foods without worrying about the consequences.
A veneer can be used on one tooth to match the rest of your smile or on your whole smile to transform your appearance.
Are you looking for a brighter smile?
Your smile is one of the first thing people notice, being able to smile confidently and without embarrassment positively impacts on all our lives. The colour of our teeth can be affected by staining substances such as cigarettes, coffee, tea and red wine.
At Dr Rez Dental we offer a range of teeth whitening treatments, that will leave you with a brighter and whiter smile that you can be proud of. Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.
There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more dis-coloured as we get older.
Zoom! in-Practice tooth whitening "Laser" or "power whitening" is a whitening procedure which is carried out directly in the dental chair. During this procedure a rubber dam is put over your teeth to protect the gums, and a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth. Then a light or laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The light speeds up the reaction of the whitening product and the colour change can be achieved more quickly. Laser whitening is said to make teeth up to five or six shades lighter.
Sometimes the gum around a crown or veneer may be at a different level to its partner, which often shows when the patient smiles. Some patients may have a high or “gummy smile”.
Gum re-contouring can alter the position of the gum margin by careful trimming, usually undertaken at the time of tooth preparation.
ICON is a revolutionary product that quickly and painlessly removes white spots from teeth. This treatment can usually be performed on the same day and the results are instant. The results are permanent – but you do need to maintain a high standard of oral care to keep them sparkling white afterwards!
White spots are very common and can be the result of flurosis (caused by a high intake of fluoride when the adult teeth are developing) De-calcification (usually seen after braces are removed in areas that were not cleaned thoroughly enough) or Trauma, particularly when the teeth were first developing.
A dental crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’ and is an artificial tooth that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it a natural tooth shape. Dental crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function and enhance the overall health of your mouth.
Dental crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been damaged or weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.
A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons; you may have dis-coloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth, you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it or a crown may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
