Did you know that one in four of us in the UK are unhappy with our smile? Cosmetic dentistry is used as a means of improving the appearance of our teeth, it is no longer just a case of filling and taking out teeth. At Atrium Dental we offer a range of effective cosmetic treatments that can help improve the look of your teeth and smile.
Are you considering Cosmetic Dental treatment?
Here at Atrium Dental, we are pleased to offer a FREE Initial Consultation. We'll listen to your wishes and concerns, explain the process and options and then help you choose the right treatment for your individual needs.
Tooth colour is a very individual thing and can darken as we get older. It is also affected by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and smoking. Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. At Atrium Dental we offer kits to whiten your teeth at home or in surgery Zoom! Laser Whitening.
Home Whitening Kits
If you choose to whiten your teeth at home, we will take moulds of your top and bottom teeth from which customised whitening trays are then made. You will fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them at night, or for a few hours during the day depending on your preference. Home whitening is a gradual process, but results are normally seen over 1-2 weeks and will last for up to 2 years before you need to do a top up.
In Surgery Whitening
We also offer the Zoom! Advanced Power™ in-practice whitening procedure. Using whitening gel with state-of-the-art light technology, this whitening treatment leaves your teeth an average of eight shades whiter in less than an hour. Zoom! is a proven and reliable ‘laser’ whitening technique, and the procedure is safe, fast acting, gentle and very effective.
Typically consisting of a blend of different cosmetic dental treatment and other dental solutions, the goal of a Smile Makeover is to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth.
Following a FREE Initial Consultation and a subsequent Smile Assessment, we'll create a bespoke Treatment Plan that's tailored to your unique needs. This might involve some of the following treatment solutions:
Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations used when you have a cavity in your tooth that is too big to be filled. An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth while an onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities. Made from tooth-coloured porcelain and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.
Where front teeth have become worn with time, we can often rebuild the edges in white filling to restore the length of the teeth back to normal. This is often combined with straightening your teeth first and whitening them too before bonding the edges.
Replacing old fillings with tooth-coloured 'white' fillings is another relatively quick and cost effective way of improving your smile. This is a safe procedure in which the metal filling in the tooth is removed and a tooth-coloured filling is placed instead. White fillings allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural overall appearance. We can often improve your smile simply by replacing any old discoloured white fillings that you have in your front teeth.
Gaps in your teeth can lead to increased stresses on your other teeth and affect the way you bite and chew. A dental bridge is a permanent fixture comprising one or more false teeth and is used to fill the gap after the natural tooth has been lost through injury or extraction.
A dental bridge is a simple and effective way to get a fixed replacement for missing teeth.
