Cosmetic dentistry has the potential to create a more beautiful smile. Treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include tooth whitening, white fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers.
When a tooth is badly broken or heavily filled, the dentist may need to crown or ‘cap’ it to restore its appearance and strength. They can be made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain, porcelain bonded to metal or gold.
Bridgework can be used to replace missing teeth using either side of the gap for support.
Veneers are thin facing porcelain. They are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth.
