Cosmetic Dentistry at Sandy Lane Dental Practice

Many of us in the UK are unhappy with our smile. With advances in modern dentistry, it's no longer just a case of filling and taking out teeth. Cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry', is used as a means of improving the appearance of teeth and your smile.

Smile Design

Your smile is often one of the first things that other people notice about you and improving the appearance of your teeth will give you a smile to show off.

A smile makeover involves one or more cosmetic dental procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile. It is a very individual process as it is dependent on what you want, but a makeover could range from a simple improvement, such as the replacement of silver fillings with more discreet white ones and teeth whitening, to teeth being straightened or missing teeth replaced.

Here are some of the ways we can help improve your smile using modern cosmetic dentistry:

  • Crooked teeth can be straightened with Invisalign aligners.

  • Chipped, broken teeth can be repaired by cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.

  • Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, a dental bridge or a denture.

  • Discoloured or stained teeth can be cleaned or professionally whitened.

We offer a range of cosmetic treatments, all designed to enhance your smile!

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a technique where resin is colour-matched, shaped and contoured onto your teeth to give the appearance of straighter, whiter smile. Composite Bonding is a very simple cosmetic procedure and cost effective treatment.

It can be used to correct and improve the appearance of chipped teeth, gaps in your teeth, and staining on teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, which require a reduction in tooth structure, composite bonding can be less invasive and completed in one visit.

Dental Veneers are an effective solution for someone with healthy teeth who is looking to improve the shape, size, or the colour of his or her teeth.

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.

Veneers can be used to reshape all kinds of deformations, including:

  • If you have gaps between your teeth

  • If you have a cracked tooth

  • If the position of your teeth is compromised

  • If you have stained teeth

Teeth Whitening is the safest and most cost-effective way of enhancing the appearance of your teeth. This non-surgical dental treatment is pain free and will leave you with beautiful teeth that are many shades lighter.

With superb instant results, teeth whitening is a painless and effective way to improve your smile. Teeth discolouration responds extremely well to whitening treatment, removing stains on teeth caused by:

  • fizzy drinks

  • coffee

  • smoking

  • wine

  • food

Whitening treatment lifts off stains from the enamel and works by allowing a very small amount of bleaching gel to come in to contact with the teeth. The gel then reacts with the surface of the tooth, gently removing stains.

At Sandy Lane Dental Practice we offer both in-practice and home teeth whitening treatments.

White Fillings

Fillings are one of the most basic methods of restoring teeth. They do exactly what their name suggests - they fill a hole in the tooth that has been caused by decay and can help preserve the tooth for many years.

In the past fillings were always made from either gold or a silver-coloured alloy called amalgam. Both these materials are extremely durable and in some circumstances they are still the best choice available. But they both have one disadvantage – they do not match the natural white teeth in appearance.

At Sandy Lane Dental Practice, we use the most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials to enable you to have white fillings. Tooth-coloured filings blend in with your natural teeth making that an affordable but discreet option.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-lasting solution for missing teeth. They are a safe, reliable and long-lasting solution to replace one or more missing teeth.

Looking, feeling and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant is a small screw made from surgical grade titanium that replaces the root portion of a missing tooth. This becomes the foundation for new replacement teeth, a crown, or a dental bridge.
