How cosmetic dentistry is making smile wishes come true

Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term covering a wide range of treatments that all have one thing in common: they are the stuff that smile dreams are made of. Dove Dental Care in Derby has an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu, and our skilled team of dentists enjoy nothing more than making those dreams come true – whatever that may entail.

cosmetic-dentistry-derbyNo matter what your issue with your present smile, a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Derby dental clinic is the first step in transforming your dreams into reality. Your dentist will find out what your smile aspirations and wishes are, and will undertake a complete clinical examination so that they can recommend the best way to achieve it.

It might be that you benefit most from combining two or more procedures from the extensive cosmetic dentistry menu at our Derby clinic, or you may need just one treatment. Whatever you require, your Derby dentist will create a customised cosmetic dentistry treatment plan.

Some common cosmetic dentistry concerns, and the way your Derby dentist can help, include:

Misaligned teeth

Straighter teeth are high up on many patients’ cosmetic dentistry wish list, but metal braces tend to be rock bottom. That’s why at our Derby clinic we offer more discreet solutions. Your dentist may recommend Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces for rapid correction of issues affecting your front teeth, or Invisalign removable aligners for more extensive correction.

Discoloured teeth

Teeth whitening is cosmetic dentistry’s number one procedure, and is a safe and effective way of combating everyday stains such as those caused by coffee or red wine. It must only be carried out by a dentist. Whitening doesn’t work on permanent stains, but porcelain veneers often offer an effective solution.

Visible metal fillings

Metal amalgam fillings are strong but obvious. Your Derby dentist has a number of options for safely replacing them. These include white fillings, which are very strong and durable these days and particularly suited to front teeth; porcelain inlays and onlays, which are a good option when extra strength is required, and which are carefully shaped to fit your tooth; or crowns, when a tooth is badly weakened.
