What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an expansion upon general dentistry, focusing specifically upon the aesthetic side of oral care. This means improving upon the appearance of your teeth, gums and mouth in general. There are many different procedures available which come under cosmetic dentistry each ranging from relatively simple procedures, to complex surgeries. We will take a look at these procedures within this article, and how they can affect you and your smile.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are ceramic replacements designed to resemble our natural teeth. They are created to look as real as possible, in order to remedy many cosmetic issues with teeth, such as crooked smiles or cracked teeth. The veneers are applied to the teeth through using a special dental adhesive.


Teeth whitening

This is a basic, yet effective method of cosmetic dentistry, performed on stained or yellow teeth. This procedure is performed after a thorough cleaning of the teeth to remove any excess plaque and tar remaining on the teeth. As cosmetic dentists in Tamworth, we have seen a rise and interest in people contacting us for teeth whitening.


Dental implants

Dental implants are replacement teeth when one tooth has been lost. A small titanium screw is inserted into the jaw, acting as a support for a crown to be placed over it. Dental implants are designed to look and feel as natural as possible, with very little maintenance after they are fitted.


Composite bonding

This refers to the repairing of decayed and discoloured teeth through a material which mimics the colour of enamel. Firstly, the tooth decay is drilled out from the tooth, and is replaced by the enamel like composite. This is sculpted around the tooth, and set in place using a high intensity light.
This not only improves the health of the affected tooth, but gives it a more aesthetically pleasing look too.
