CEREC
CEREC stands for CERamic REconstruction. It is an in-surgery CAD\CAM system that can make any laboratory dental restoration (crown\veneer\inlay) actually in the dentists surgery. It is without doubt that CEREC is the most advanced dental system in the world and all the longterm clinical tests and studies are showing teeth restored with CEREC are lasting as long as teeth restored with gold.

Gum Contouring
Not everyone shows their gums when they smile, but if they do then having an even gumline along the top of the teeth is important for a natural smile. Gum contouring or gum sculpting as it is sometimes called, is a technique to reshape the gumline to give an even and balanced appearance.

Cosmetic Crowns
Crowns (or caps) are where the whole tooth is completely covered, as compared to a veneer where only the front surface is covered. Crowns have been used in dentistry since the 1920’s although materials have changed significantly since then. Originally, crowns were made from gold but in the 1950’s it became possible to overlay gold with porcelain and so tooth coloured crowns were made with a gold base

Cosmetic Veneers
Veneers are best though of as new tooth 'facings', which are bonded permanently to the front surface of the teeth.

A Guide To Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

We are all becoming more aware
of how we look and how improving
our appearance makes us feel good!

Our health and appearance has become very important to most of us in the 21st century. Rightly or wrongly, we are often judged both socially and professionally by our appearance and a healthy, confident smile can help give you a positive image. Often, people who don’t smile naturally can be seem shy, lacking in confidence or even unfriendly. A healthy and attractive smile can bring many benefits and when you smile people around you will smile too!

Our aim in making this site is to explain exactly what is available with cosmetic dentistry and to help you decide what may be a possible solution to your own particular needs. We have included as many examples as possible on all the different aspects and situations where cosmetic dentistry has been used. There are many before and after photos of patients who have had cosmetic dentistry along with a guide as to what is involved, how long each procedure takes, longevity of treatments and the likely costs.

Finally, if you need any more information you can always ask one of our cosmetic dentist experts – it’s free and confidential.

With smile makeover programs and celebrities with gleaming ‘perfect teeth’ it’s easy to think that cosmetic dentistry is just about making a mouthful of super white veneers! Well, this is not so!

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Quite simply, cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that will improve the appearance of your teeth. With all the smile makeover programs and celebrities with gleaming ‘perfect teeth’ it’s easy to think that cosmetic dentistry is just about making a mouthful of super white veneers! Well, this is not so. Veneers may be needed in some cases but often simpler procedures such as repairing chipped teeth with a tooth coloured resin, a whitening treatment or changing discoloured fillings can be all it takes to give a new, confident smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry has changed considerably in the last decade – advances in materials and techniques has made it easier and more affordable to improve your smile. CAD/CAM technology such as the CEREC system means procedures that took two or more visits and wearing temporary teeth for a few weeks such as crownsor veneers can now be done in a single appointment – without the need for impression moulds or temporary teeth.
