Whether you're interested in cosmetic dental treatments purely for aesthetics or to help boost your self-confidence, Brentwood-based Coptfold Dental Practice offers a wide range of cosmetic dental options using advanced techniques and technologies.
Where a tooth is more severely broken down then a crown is advised, this involves a more substantial preparation of the tooth. As with veneers, a tooth crown fully restores use of the tooth as well as cosmetics.
A minimal amount of tooth is removed from the tooth surface and durable veneers are fitted over them which improves functionality and look of your teeth. Made of ceramic materials, tooth veneers are very strong and long lasting.
An effective alternative to traditional braces, clear braces involve a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position.
While many methods are recommended for tooth whitening, the most effective system is the tray system. Impressions are taken of your teeth and custom made trays (made of a soft material) are constructed. The dentist then instructs you in the procedure of applying the gel using these trays. This procedure is totally safe and as long as the instructions are followed, the results are extremely pleasing.
The normal period required for this treatment is between two and three weeks. From this point onward, the new shade can be maintained by repeating the process for two or three nights every five to six months.
Where teeth are unsightly as a result of discoloured fillings or fractures it is possible to restore good aesthetics by replacing the worn fillings with cosmetic white ones. In more severe cases white fillings can be used in conjunction with porcelain veneers or crowns.
