Ways cosmetic dentistry can boost the appearance of your smile

Cosmetic dentistry is the area of the profession that focuses on the aesthetic appearance of a smile. At Dove Dental Care in Derby, our team of cosmetic dentists offers a range of treatments large and small, all designed to give you a smile you’ll be itching to show off.

cosmetic-dentistry-derbyIf you have any issues with the appearance of your current smile, we invite you to come into our Derby practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. An experienced cosmetic dentist will listen to your concerns and aspirations regarding your smile, and will answer any questions you may have. They will then examine your teeth, gums and surrounding structures before talking you through all the relevant treatment options.

The cosmetic dentistry menu at Dove Dental Care in Derby is extensive, and whatever you require your dentist will create a bespoke treatment plan.

We’ve found that many people like to complement any cosmetic dentistry work they may have with options from our facial aesthetics team. Combining treatments in this way can leave you looking – and feeling – many years younger.

Among the popular options on our cosmetic dentistry menu are:


Porcelain veneers are micro-thin shells that are fitted over the front surfaces of the teeth, much like false fingernails. They are bonded in place with a strong dental adhesive, and can improve the appearance of a wide range of imperfections.

Replacing metal fillings

Silver or grey metal amalgam fillings can be replaced with either composite white fillings or porcelain inlays or onlays. Whichever option you choose, your dentist will closely match your restorations to the natural colour of your teeth.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that quickly improve your smile by straightening the front teeth. They comprise tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets for added discretion.
