The Approach to Cosmetic Dentistry
We believe that your smile is the most prominent feature of your face . There is an intimate relationship between the smile and face. A dentists holistic approach to smile design is the cornerstone of delivering cosmetic dental treatments tailored to the individual.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved to address both functional and aesthetic concerns, including worn-down teeth (from grinding or ageing), bite correction, crooked and uneven teeth, discoloured and stained teeth, tooth loss and damaged teeth.
Dentists offer a comprehensive and complementary range of cosmetic dental treatments to address these aesthetic concerns:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Invisalign (invisible braces)
- Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening
- White Inlays (replacing silver and gold fillings), and
If you feel self-conscious about your teeth or the overall appearance of your smile, take a moment to assess what features you would like to change. Common concerns include —
- Tooth Size and Shape

Your Smile’s Age
As we age teeth naturally become more yellow in colour due to staining and thinning of the external enamel and discolouration of the internal dentine. Teeth that are yellowed, worn-down and chipped can make your smile appear out of step with your real age. Changes to the shape, size, position and colour of the teeth can reduce the perceived ‘age’ of the teeth and overall smile, while keeping the final result age appropriate. From an aesthetic perspective, more uniform, balanced and whiter teeth are a great start to achieving a more youthful looking smile.
Our Most Popular Treatment
Teeth Whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment and is suitable for almost everyone. It is the easiest and most effective way to change the appearance of your teeth. Professional dental whitening is safe and provides our patients with predictable and noticeable cosmetic outcomes. Using the Phillips Zoom In-Chair Whitening system teeth can be whitened up to 8 shades lighter in a single one-hour appointment.
Repair Damaged Teeth
Cosmetic dental procedures are commonly used to repair damaged teeth. When a tooth is traumatised the nerve inside the tooth can be damaged and turn the colour of the tooth grey. Using a veneer we can cover the discoloured surface and restore the appearance of the tooth to blend in with your surrounding teeth. Veneers are also effective in covering minor chips and restoring length to shortened teeth due to grinding and everyday wear.
