At Market Square Dental, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments. This usually starts with home teeth whitening and then if necessary white fillings, veneers and crowns can be discussed to improve your smile.
Home Teeth Whitening is a safe, effective way of enhancing your smile. A home tray system is provided which consists of custom trays to fit your teeth and whitening gels. Results can be seen in less than a week and the effects can last up to 18 months depending on existing discolouration.
Veneers & Crowns
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain material that is made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Sometimes a natural-colour ‘composite’ material is used instead of porcelain.
They are a great way to cover misshaped, discoloured and crooked teeth and can provide excellent cosmetic results. Small gaps can also be closed where braces may not be possible.
The advantage of veneers over crowns is that they are extremely thin and very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Sometimes nothing at all!
A crown also known as a ‘cap’ is an ideal way of repairing broken and weak teeth. Tooth coloured crowns are used for several reasons. Patients may have a discoloured filling which they would like to improve or you may have had a root filling and need a crown to protect the tooth. A range of different crown materials are used making the crowns indistinguishable from your own natural teeth.
Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth or teeth that are beyond repair. Missing teeth can not only affect your confidence but it can also have an impact on which foods you can eat and how well you can chew. Tooth loss can change your bite which can in turn can lead to jaw problems.
Implants, like natural teeth require regular maintenance and will last for as long as you look after them. They can usually last for many years.
