Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
This has to be the best cosmetic dental treatment available. A lighter and brighter smile without needing dentistry! Properly done, most people will achieve teeth 8-10 shades whiter or more.
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.
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.
Dental Implants are replacement tooth roots and are used to put back missing teeth. The implant is usually placed into the bone in the same position as the original tooth root.
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
Veneers are best though of as new tooth 'facings', which are bonded permanently to the front surface of the teeth.
