You are hereCosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry comprises techniques which make teeth look nicer when you smile. For example cosmetic dentistry may remove deep stains or change the colour, position or shape of the teeth. We can also use techniques to improve the gum appearance to blend with the teeth resulting in a perfect natural smile.
Psychological tests have established that we all make quick, but long lasting judgments about people within seconds of first meeting, based on our appearance and our manner. Confidence also comes down to how we feel about how we look, and what do we do when we first meet someone? Smile.
For people whose work depends on making a good impression, cosmetic dentistry can be essential.
As standard we use the AIR-FLOW air abrasion system to initially clean the teeth. It uses a jet with bicarb and water gently to remove dental plaque, deposits and stains.
We also have tooth whitening toothpaste which complements our whole range of tooth whitening / bleaching systems. We offer both power whitening for when you require whiter teeth immediately and custom whitening for a long lasting whitening solution.
Often the cosmetic dentistry request here at Birdgate Dental is simply for white, invisible fillings when replacing broken or worn amalgam fillings. We use state of the art materials which function, feel and look exactly like natural teeth.
Dental veneers are new tooth surfaces attached permanently to the existing teeth to provide a better look, appear to straighten teeth and close gaps between teeth. Whereas previously dental veneers have required the abrasion of your tooth enamel before fitting, at Birdgate Dental we offer non-destructive Future Veneers http://www.futureveneers.com/ which attach to the enamel of your teeth with little or no preparation. These veneers are more durable and are expected to last 20 years.
Natural looking dentures
In all our work we try to make replacement teeth, whether they are dentures, veneers or crowns look as natural as possible. That dazzling Hollywood smile isn't right for everyone, certainly not as a new pair of dentures. Sometimes that requires some artistry to incorporate natural looking cracks, stains or fillings to suit. We can even create the smile you would have had if you had your own natural teeth.
Tooth straightening is, of course, offered for children and adults as part of a treatment plan, however the actual treatment is done by a colleague specialist in York.
Of course, Birdgate Dental also houses the Dental Implant Centre, a national centre for implant excellence.
Dental implants look, feel and function like your natural teeth.
