Cosmetic dentistry does not only focus on the aesthetics of your teeth. Cosmetic dentists are equally focused on ensuring that the appearance of your teeth is matched with good dental health. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, cosmetic dentistry involves many treatments for creating the smile you desire. Our experienced dentists will help you decide what the right option is for you.
Whether you opt for teeth whitening, white fillings or cosmetic bonding, among others, our dentists will concentrate on the aesthetic outcome as well as your oral health. Once you choose the most effective treatment, or a combination of treatments, we can go ahead with cosmetic dentistry to enhance your smile.
Yellow and stained teeth are very common and often prevent people from smiling. Whether the result of old age, genetics, caffeine, red wine or medications, discoloured teeth can be brightened up with professional teeth whitening.
We offer custom-made, high quality whitening trays for patients who wish to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home. Once you receive your trays, you will need to apply the bleaching gel to your mouth trays and wear them every day for a few weeks. You will be advised to use the gel until you have reached a level of whiteness you are happy with. The whole process may take 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the initial state of your teeth.
Many adults have older amalgam (silver) fillings, which can be unsightly. Replacing these fillings with the latest tooth-coloured or white materials can leave your mouth looking natural and healthy.
This is a safe procedure that entails one of our Farnham dentists removing any decay from your tooth, taking out the metal or amalgam filling and placing a tooth-coloured filling instead. This filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. You will be able to smile with confidence, knowing your teeth have a completely natural appearance.
As dentists we believe prevention is always better than cure, and will encourage and help you to look after your teeth so you do not develop tooth decay in the first place. If you do have decay and need a filling, our white fillings are both an aesthetic and functional solution.
If you want to subtly enhance the appearance of your smile, we can use the latest tooth-coloured materials to fill small gaps between your teeth or smooth over rough or chipped edges. Your teeth could have worn edges, shallow pits or grooves, or may be slightly overlapping; cosmetic bonding and teeth reshaping can minimise these small defects by smoothing the surface of the tooth to create a uniform and straighter smile.
The colour of the material is matched to the colour of your other teeth and is bonded directly onto the tooth surface. It can be shaped or contoured to match the surrounding teeth or alter the shape, depending on your needs. In this way, prominent or overlapping teeth can be reshaped and recontoured painlessly.
We can discuss all your cosmetic options to eliminate imperfections in your teeth and enable you to smile with confidence.
