Is it true that you have white teeth? When asked, “What about your smile dissatisfies you the least?” the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) conducted a poll. The most common response was the colour of one’s teeth. Teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures will make your teeth whiter and clearer, helping you to smile with confidence.

The combination of science and modern cosmetic dentistry can yield incredible results that often exceed even the most ardent patient expectations. This page is designed to familiarise you with the latest materials and techniques in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Please read the details of these procedures that follow.

Retouching

Your smile may be disfigured by yellow or brown streaks, white patches, asymmetrical gum contours, and irregular edges. Simple cosmetic dentistry techniques can produce immediate and dramatic results. All of the cosmetic dentistry procedures mentioned below can normally be completed in one or two visits to the dentist’s office.

  1. In one office visit, jagged tooth edges can be re contoured and polished.
  2. Asymmetrical soft tissue contours can be reversed with minimal local anaesthetic in a single office visit. Your gums will contribute up to 50% of the overall cosmetic benefit of your front teeth. This is particularly noticeable in younger patients’ smiles, where the gums are prominently exposed while smiling or talking. An anterior soft-tissue re contour is a single-visit procedure that uses laser and/or electro-surgery techniques. The outcomes are dramatic and predictable, with the potential to last a lifetime.
  3. A simple “whitening” method involving a proprietary gel and a blue curing light will eliminate yellow or brown stains. The BriteSmile(TM) “whiter teeth in about an hour” procedure, which is much quicker than laser whitening, is a common amenity. The end result can be breathtaking and dramatic. In just one visit, BriteSmile(TM) will whiten your teeth by up to 9 shades.
  4. Using an acidic-micro-abrasion scrub, several dark and super-white spots can be eliminated with only one office visit. With a “acidic-micro-abrasion procedure,” these unsightly spots can normally be safely removed in a single office visit. There is no need for anaesthetic.
