Cosmetic dental services at a dentist in Walkerston
Not everyone has to live with the teeth they are born with. In fact, even those born with perfect teeth can have unfortunate accidents which affect their smiles and require treatment. Thankfully at our modern practice in Walkerston, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments that can get you smiling once more. So come in and see our dentist in Walkerston, and tell us about the results and smile you want and we’ll find the treatment plan right for you.
A gummy smile can overshadow even the most pretty teeth by covering them up and making them appear too short. By carefully reshaping the gums in a delicate procedure we can expose more of the tooth so that when you smile you can do so knowing that you are showing teeth and not gums.
Gums can also be overexposed when the muscles in the upper lip are overactive thus pulling the lip higher and exposing more teeth and gums than it should, if this is the case then a different treatment is required instead of a gum reshaping treatment, for further diagnosis on your gummy smile you will have to speak to one of our experienced dentists on the best course of action for you.
Orthodontics is a proven method to straighten crooked and misaligned teeth long term, orthodontics can also address issues with the bite called malocclusions. Traditionally, the only option for people seeking orthodontic treatment was to get metal braces. However, at a dentist in Walkerston, we can offer you a clear aligner treatments, such as Invisalign, which will straighten your teeth in a short period of time compared to braces and do so with complete discretion.
Clear aligner trays are custom made to fit and gently correct the position of your teeth. They are completely invisible when worn and can be removed for eating, cleaning and sporting activities which means there need be no change in your active lifestyle.
Crowns and Veneers
Crowns and veneers can quickly cover up a multitude of problems with the appearance of your teeth, whether they have been chipped, broken, stained or discoloured, a crown or veneers can be custom made to create a single new tooth or even cover up all the front teeth to give you that Hollywood smile.
This is the most simple and widely used procedure to transform the look of your teeth and can subtly renew your entire appearance. Whether you want to gradually lighten and brighten your teeth at home or have an immediate transformation in our practise and get your teeth a few shades lighter in a single session, it is easily done with professional whitening.
Whiter teeth look healthier and may encourage you to take better care of them once you have spent money making them beautiful. A whitening treatment at a dentist in Walkerston is recommended after your orthodontic treatment is complete in order to finish off the look and before a veneer or crown is set in order to choose a porcelain that matches your new white teeth instead of older yellowed ones.
