Cosmetic Dentistry

Improve Your Smile

Improving your smile can have a huge impact on your appearance and confidence. Here at the Old Orchard Dental Practice, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Treatments range from cosmetic fillings, veneers, teeth straightening and whitening.

Teeth Whitening

Cosmetic Dentistry White Teeth

Achieve a whiter, brighter smile!

When our patients express interest in a smile makeover, teeth whitening is usually the first treatment to consider. Your dentists will advise you on the results that can be achieved and your suitability for whitening. We offer a simple at home treatment using both Pola Day and Pola Night gel. Special custom-made bleaching appliances are created for you which hold the active gels in place while they lighten your teeth. The results are a whiter, brighter smile in a matter of weeks.

To maintain your brighter smile, we’d advise regular hygiene appointments following your treatment.

Teeth Straightening

Straightening your teeth will not only improve your smile but makes cleaning your teeth easier, and supporting good hygiene and your long-term oral health. If you suffer from crooked, overcrowded teeth we can offer treatments to straighten teeth at the front of your mouth using:

  • Invisalign 
    A series of clear aligners which gradually move your teeth into the desired position. They offer comfortable, quick and are barely noticeable, whilst being easily removed for eating and drinking.
  • Inman aligners
    A great option for straightening protruding or crowded front teeth. A single removable device is designed for you which gradually guides the teeth into position.
  • Other types of removable orthodontic appliances

Cosmetic Restoration

Sometimes in order to achieve a significant cosmetic improvement we use restorations. It can involve replacing old fillings with high quality, mercury free, composite resin fillings which are tooth coloured and provide a more natural result.

Your dentist can also build up cracked or chipped teeth and replace old crowns with modern all ceramic porcelain crowns which have a very natural look and feel. Porcelain veneers are also available and can be used to improve cosmetic appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth.
