Cosmetic dentistry revolves around creating a healthy, natural, lasting smile using a combination of techniques.

Cosmetic Dentistry is a discipline within dentistry in which teeth are modified to improve appearance and resulting in healthy well – aligned whitened teeth with an ideal occlusion and orofacial aesthetics. This can be achieved with teeth whitening,crowns, bonding or veneers, orthodontics Inman Aligner.

Crowns can be used to improve heavily stained teeth and are commonly used to repair and protect broken, decayed, worn or heavily restored teeth or where composite resin may not be a suitable material to restore a tooth.

Dental veneers are thin shells of custom made porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth (similar to false nails). They may be used to correct problems such as chips, fractures, misshapen, crooked or severely stained teeth that cannot be corrected with composite resin. Veneers may also close gaps, change size, shape or position of teeth, and improve the worn appearance of teeth.

Bonding is useful for improving the image of very small irregularities but as a long term solution may not be as successful as veneers. It involves the bonding of a tooth coloured resin to the surface of the tooth which is then set and hardened.

A gummy smile or black space between teeth can be improved by employing new techniques such as botulinum toxin

By administering small amounts of muscle relaxant into the hyperactive muscle of the upper lip, the muscle can be relaxed during smiling, reducing the excessive lip elevation and eliminating the “Gummy Smile”.

Dermal Fillers can be used to correct dark spaces around implants or crowns, easily and safely. Until now, this has been a difficult problem to correct
