Cosmetic Dental Treatments


Tooth whitening is a simple way to brighten up your teeth giving you greater confidence and making you more likely to smile. It is a safe procedure using trays (like gum shields) that are filled with whitening gel and worn at home.

The Home whitening system requires two short appointments with your dentist. We recommend using your whitening trays every night for 10-14 days for approximately 3 - 4 hours before bed to achieve optimum results.

Whitening will not affect crowns, veneers or fillings, so if you have any of these and are considering a whitening procedure you may wish to consult with your dentist first. The effects of tooth whitening are achieved in only a few week and the results are long lasting and can be topped up for years to come to permanently achieve that whitening look. Studies have shown there is no long term damage to teeth from whitening although some people do experience temporary sensitivity during treatment.

White Fillings:

White or tooth coloured fillings provide a healthier, more natural alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. They also allow for a minimally invasive restoration meaning more of your natural tooth can be preserved.

White fillings can be used in the front or the back of the mouth. They are the ideal, natural-looking way, to restore strength and function to damaged teeth. Your dentist can build up cracked or chipped teeth with a white filling to restore each tooth to its original look and feel.

White fillings offer a quick and affordable way to correct a variety of dental situations such as:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Reshaping short or uneven teeth
  • Tooth decay and the filling of cavities
  • Discoloration
  • Replace metal or amalgam fillings

Porcelain Crowns:

If your tooth has become broken, badly decayed or damaged in such a way that a filling is not strong enough to support the tooth, then a Crown may be recommended by your dentist as the most suitable treatment option for you.

A crown (also known as a 'cap') is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore function and appearance. With advances in modern dental technology all porcelain crowns are able to offer patients the best of both worlds - a long lasting and natural looking solution

Crowns can be the ideal treatment option for the following dental situations:

  • To restore badly broken teeth
  • To restore teeth that have been heavily filled and become weak
  • To reshape, an uneven or unsightly tooth to match your surrounding teeth
  • To restore the brightness to discoloured teeth
  • To protect a root treated tooth

Porcelain Veneers:

Porcelain veneers can dramatically transform your smile. Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain which are made to fit over the visible surface of your tooth and are custom-made in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Veneers can dramatically transform your smile and are an ideal treatment option for teeth that have been badly stained (and cannot be improved by teeth whitening), for closing gaps or spaces in your smile, for badly chipped teeth, for teeth that have been ground down over time from tooth grinding.


Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are made to match the shade of your own teeth surrounding the empty space. These teeth serve as anchors for the bridge.
