Does your smile make a great first impression?

One of the first things that people notice about you is your smile. A beautiful, healthy smile can make you appear more confident, successful and can even make you look years younger!


These days we are all concerned about our appearance and it is not enough to have teeth and gums which are disease free. We want to make a great first impression and be proud of our smiles; to not have unsightly gaps between teeth or to have old grey silver fillings showing. Do you think you would be less embarrassed to smile if your teeth were whiter or straighter?


Stained or discoloured teeth can often be made at least one shade whiter by simply having a thorough professional cleaning and polishing. Of course, this treatment is not purely aesthetic as it also improves the health of your gums and supporting tissues so you can keep your teeth for life. If you want a more dramatic change in colour, then whitening treatments are available. Take home kits are designed for use in the comfort of your own home from as little as 30 minutes a day for 5 days. In addition, for an even more rapid result we do the Zoom in house whitening which can have your teeth dazzling in just over an hour!


If you wish to change the shape or form of teeth, then it may be possible to do veneers to correct any unevenness in your smile. This very predictable treatment option allows us to use thin fingernails of porcelain to overlay the teeth and create symmetry and harmony in the smile zone. The current ceramic materials have improved tremendously allowing light to pass through easily to mimic natural tooth shading and characteristics.


Advances in dental technology, materials and techniques now mean that you have a large choice of options available to you in order to achieve your dream smile. Come and tell us what you want your smile to look like and we will listen and advise you on the best options for you.
