At St Stephens Dental Practice we offer a full range of cosmetic services.
These range from bleaching using either the one hour in surgery laser bleaching system which will lighten teeth by up to 6 shades in one hour, or the home bleach system which achieves a similar result but usually takes a couple of weeks. To maintain that bright smile we have a wide selection of cleaning products and equipment including adhesive bleaching strips and electric toothbrushes.
The laser can also be used for soft tissue (gum) reshaping.
Teeth can be recontoured and reshaped using bonding techniques. Old black or silver fillings can be replaced using matching white composite fillings or onlays.
Veneers, crowns and bridges are also available.
Veneers can reshape a tooth or mask poor colour. Crowns can do a similar job reshaping or masking and can protect heavily filled teeth. Bridges replace missing teeth filling gaps by components attached to neighbouring teeth.
Implants can also be used to fill spaces. These provide a stand alone replacement for a missing tooth or teeth without relying on attachment to adjacent teeth.
Dentures are the more traditional way of filling spaces ,available in either acrylic, flexible or chrome cobalt metal types depending on situation.
