ADULT ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontics is a specialist area of dentistry focused on the correction of uneven teeth, moving teeth and crowded mouths. In turn this will help improve the function and appearance of teeth as well as look after the long-term health of teeth, gums and jaw joints.

Orthodontists use a variety of different brace styles and systems to move teeth into a desired position. We’ve a selection of short term orthodontic treatments available designed to help improve the appearance of your teeth, without interfering with your lifestyle.

TEETH WHITENING

Teeth whitening is a great way to help hide the everyday stains caused by tea, coffee, red wine and smoking as well as help enhance your smile, making you look younger. 

The treatment works by allowing a very small amount of whitening gel to come into contact with the teeth. This then reacts with the surface of the tooth, gently lightening stains and leaving you with a healthier looking smile.

The process is suitable for patients of all ages, but is most effective on patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth. The speed of whitening and colour change will depend entirely on the initial colour of the teeth.

If you've previously had crowns, veneers or fillings, these teeth will not respond to whitening. However, if this is the case, we can discuss other options with you to ensure you can still achieve a brighter, whiter smile.

DENTAL VENEERS

A veneer is a clever way of disguising your dental imperfections, including discolouration and chipped or cracked teeth. Veneers provide a great long-term solution as they're hard-wearing, long-lasting and go unnoticed.

A veneer is very thin porcelain sleeve that cleverly fits over the front teeth, fitting precisely to give you a natural look and feel. The procedure has a short-term treatment plan, with minimal invasiveness, leaving you looking and feeling more confident in no time! 

INLAYS AND ONLAYS

Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations that your dentist can suggest if you have a cavity in your tooth that needs to be filled.

  • An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth.

  • An onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities.

For many years, gold has been used to make inlays and onlays because it is a hard material and lasts for a long time. Nowadays, tooth-coloured porcelain is also used and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.

COSMETIC BRIDGES

Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth by using one or both of the neighbouring teeth as anchors.Cosmetic dental bridges are made from a tooth-coloured, putty-like resin, which is a durable plastic material.

They are applied by cementing to the anchor tooth or teeth then fixing in place, bonding the material to the tooth, giving you that great smile, allowing you to laugh and eat with confidence.
