5 ways to a beautiful smile

Knowing your teeth are looking great will improve your confidence and give you a radiant smile.

Here are five simple ways to improve the look of your teeth and keep you smiling.

  1. Regular professional cleaning – Don’t underestimate the value of a six-monthly professional clean from our dentists. Removing plaque and tartar is a key step in maintaining healthy looking teeth and gums as well as preventing future problems. Swollen, red gums are a sign of gum disease, but can be dramatically improved by removing calculus and hard-to-reach plaque. 5 ways to a beautiful smileSuperficial staining can usually be removed through the scale and clean process. And of course, keep up the cleaning routine at home with daily flossing and brushing.
  2. Correction of slightly misaligned teeth – It is not uncommon for a tooth or several teeth to be slightly out of place, yet not significant enough to warrant costly orthodontics. Our dentists can assist you with mild adjustment of your teeth to bring them into a uniform position, giving your teeth a straighter appearance.Using Inman or Invisalign aligners we can help adults to quickly and discreetly correct mild crookedness, possibly in as little as six to sixteen weeks. Made from a clear plastic, aligners are custom made and almost impossible to see – so your smile remains intact while the aligners work on moving your teeth.
  3. Whitening or lightening for a brighter smileDental tooth whitening (aka bleaching) discoloured teeth can dramatically improve your smile. By lightening the shade of your teeth you can say goodbye to that yellow and stained look.  We offer two types of whitening programs, one that is treated at our clinic and the other that you can administer at home with our whitening kit.
  4. Veneers and white fillings – White fillings are an attractive way to fill cavities or reconstruct chipped or broken teeth. Porcelain veneers are recommended for chipped, stained, discoloured, crowded or misaligned teeth. We will recommend either of these solutions depending on the factors in your individual case.
  5. Crowns and dentures – If you have lost a tooth or damaged a tooth beyond repair a dental crown can replace your tooth to look as good as new. Partial dentures can also be used to replace missing teeth, although these are removable.
