Advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affecting their structure. Also known as bleaching this treatment will lighten teeth that have been stained or discoloured from such things as:
– Excessive fluoride uptake into enamel
– Genetic and acquired Illnesses
– Tetracycline (antibiotic) staining
– Trauma (injury) to teeth
– Pulp degeneration
– Restorative materials (Silver, Gold)
Whitening creates a brighter, more aesthetic appearance by reversing the discoloration of tooth enamel. We put a lot of time and work to ensure that you get the maximum whiteness in your teeth following your treatment.
Cosmetic bonding refers to the direct application of bonded resin material to the teeth to achieve a desired cosmetic result. This is done in one visit with the Dentist, as opposed to porcelain veneers which take two or more visits. Cosmetic bonding can achieve many of the same results as indirect porcelain veneers, although bonding cannot truly achieve the natural life like look that porcelain can.
Cosmetic bonding is really best suited for young adults where they are at an age such that further growth or shifting of teeth maybe occurring.
Veneers are thin, semi-translucent “shells,” made to fit precisely over an existing tooth. They are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth by a special resin that adheres the back of the veneer to the front of the tooth. The finished result is extremely strong and durable.
Veneers can dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile and although veneers are not suitable for every patient, they are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions affecting the front teeth and since they are very thin they are considered one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available.
Veneers are stronger and more resistant to stains, discolouration and chipping than simple resin bonding and can last for many years.
