What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to the range of dental treatments which restore or improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, bite, or smile. Many dental treatments fall into this category, including:

The main benefit of cosmetic dentistry is the creation or restoration of an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Additionally, there are other social and health benefits associated with cosmetic dentistry, including:

These treatments can assist any person wanting to improve the appearance of their teeth and gums and their dental hygiene

They can help with:

Discoloured or stained teeth

Chipped or misshapen teeth

Crooked teeth

Teeth with unsightly gaps between them

Improving your whole smile

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells made from either porcelain or a resin composite. They bond to the front surfaces of teeth to improve the tooth shape, colour, size, and alignment. Dental veneers can assist in creating a straight, symmetrical, white smile.

They can be an ideal solution for people wanting to improve the appearance of:

  • Discoloured teeth due to root canal treatment
  • Stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride, or the presence of large resin fillings
  • Worn down, chipped or broken teeth
  • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them

Dental veneers look like your own tooth enamel to create a natural-looking smile. They are made from bio-compatible material that gum tissue usually tolerates well, and you can clean them the same way as your natural teeth. Properly maintained, they will last you for many years. 

Teeth whitening

At Tooth Sparkler, we offer take-home teeth whitening. This is a non-invasive way of lifting stains from the teeth and lightening the colour of the enamel, giving you the appearance of whiter, brighter teeth. We create a customised mouth tray to which you add the whitening product. You take home the mouth tray with the whitening product and use it for a few minutes a day, for up to fourteen days. 

There are several advantages associated with take-home whitening treatments:

  • you can control the shade of white that is achieved
  • custom-fitted mouth trays ensure maximum contact between the whitening product and the teeth.
  • the trays also minimise contact of the whitening gel with the gum tissue
  • the cost is more affordable than many other whitening methods

The initial appointment with our dentist will confirm your suitability for take-home teeth whitening.

Cosmetic dentistry considerations

Cosmetic dentistry can change your appearance and change your life. However, not all cosmetic dental treatments are appropriate for every person.

Importantly, the state of a person’s oral health determines their suitability for cosmetic dentistry. The initial appointment with our dentist will confirm your suitability for cosmetic dentistry.
