Your experienced cosmetic dentist based in Egham, Surrey
There are a variety of different types of cosmetic dental treatment to really improve your appearance that are available, to you, the patient, as a smile makeover.
As an adult your teeth can become discoloured with the regular consumption of tea, coffee and red wine. All of these will take it’s toll on your teeth.
We use Polanight, a safe, reliable tooth whitening method that uses Carbamide Peroxide to whiten teeth.
At an initial assessment appointment we will identify the severity of the discolouration and the reason for it. We will also carry out a general dental check to make sure you have no outstanding dental treatment requirements. We then take impressions of your teeth to construct tooth whitening trays.
Our dentists or hygienists will demonstrate how to apply the whitening gel and leave you with your home care instructions. Most of our patients use the system overnight whilst they are sleeping but if you prefer the trays can be placed during the day for a few hours a day.
This simple but effective treatment can really brighten up your smile and is often used in conjunction with other treatments such as the Adult Cosmetic Orthodontics and before preparation of Veneers.
Sometimes a discolouration is present that cannot be improved with tooth whitening or perhaps the teeth have been damaged at the front. In this case it may be suitable to fit veneers to the teeth to improve their appearance.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain structures that are applied to the front surface of the tooth using dental adhesives. There may or may not be preparation of the tooth before hand and we call this Minimal Intervention Dentistry. Throughout this treatment we maintain as much of the tooth structure as possible.
It many cases it is usual to whiten teeth before veneering and match the veneers to the new whiter tooth shade.
Crowns, Bridges and Dentures
All these treatments can be provided with an extra cosmetic approach, with more characterisation. Perhaps including whitening before hand too. We will discuss all options with you to help you reach your treatment decisions.
Many adults missed out on orthodontic, teeth straightening treatments when they were younger. With new, modern methods of straightening, they are starting to consider this form of treatment.
There are many benefits to having straighter teeth.
- Easier to clean
- Easier to keep on top of gum health
- A great feeling to have a great smile
This treatment can be combined with tooth whitening and some minimal contouring or composite (white filling) treatments with perhaps veneers.
When you come to see us at The Crown House Dental Practice in Egham we will take time to understand what you do and don’t like about your teeth and your smile.
