As techniques improve and patient awareness increases, people are demanding that their smile is bigger and brighter.
Cosmetic dentistry is that branch of restorative (reparative) dentistry, which is concerned with improving patient’s smiles.
A whole range of treatments are available at the T K Barr Dental Care, some of them quite minimal;
Crowns “caps” are also an option but as they are more destructive, careful consideration and discussion with the patient is necessary to balance the (aesthetic) gains with the disadvantages of removing natural tooth.
Bleaching and microbrasion are the least invasive and improve the colour of the front teeth surfaces.
Addition of tooth coloured filling material can dramatically improve the appearance of teeth (which have become worn) with little or no destruction of good natural tooth. Veneers (like false finger nails) can be cemented on to the front teeth to improve their appearance and in certain cases, their alignment.
Regular maintenance of your mouth means less active treatment of disease is required and so aesthetic or cosmetic options to improve your smile are more in demand. At T K Barr Dental Care we are pleased to be able to offer this service to our existing patients and indeed to extend this capability to new patients who may wish to improve their smile and appearance.
