Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures that improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, and smile. It focuses on enhancing the aesthetics of your smile and restoring confidence in your appearance helping you show up in your life with main character energy!
At THE dentist Salisbury we believe in non-invasive cosmetic dentistry which means we make look amazing, without compromising the health or longevity of your smile.
Here are a few common cosmetic dental procedures and what they’re all about…
💋 Teeth Whitening: This is a common and non-invasive procedure that helps lighten the colour of your teeth, removing stains and discoloration caused by factors like food, beverages, smoking or aging. This is usually the foundation of all cosmetic dental procedures and a for a lot of patients, it’s all the sparkle they desire!
💋 Dental Veneers: Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are placed on the front surface of the teeth to correct issues such as chipped, stained or misaligned teeth. When looked after, they can last years!
💋 Dental Crowns: Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and appearance. They are custom-made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth. We make our crowns in house on our CEREC machine so you can have a new crown from start to finish in a few hours.
💋 Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They provide a stable foundation for dental crowns or bridges and look and function like natural teeth. They honestly are INCREDIBLE and our resident Implantologist AJ is gold standard (and has fitted over a thousand!).
💋 Orthodontics: Orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners can help straighten misaligned teeth and correct bite issues, resulting in an improved smile and better dental health. We provide Invisalign at THE dentist Salisbury to help with those minor tweaks.
💋 Composite Bonding: This procedure involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the teeth to repair chips, gaps, discoloration, or decay. It can also be used to enhance the shape or size of teeth. We love to use composite edge bonding to enhance your natural smile. It’s cost effective and when taken care of can stand the test of time.
