In today’s world, a person’s appearance impacts directly on their confidence and they way we communicate and relate to people. A person embarrassed about their teeth will tend to avoid smiling and may be perceived as aloof and unfriendly.
Appearance can even affect career prospects. A person with visible gaps in their front teeth may not be offerred front of house employment, nor are they likely to have the confidence to stand up and speak in front of a group of people.

Aesthetic Dentistry’s aim is to improve a person’s appearance or to restore broken or worn teeth to normal shape and colour. In nature, what looks good also functions well and what does not look right often reflects abnormality or pathology.

Treatment options range from the very simple, non invasive procedures, such as tooth whitening and minor bonding to complex procedures involving orthodontics, implants, crowns and veneers.

Each person needs to be assessed individually and treatment tailored for their particular needs.

AGE
Teeth take up stain and tend to wear as we get older.
Excessively dark, worn and missing teeth tends to make a person look older. Very simple techniques can be used to whiten teeth, to mask stains and rebuild teeth to a more aesthetically acceptable appearance. Simple bonding will not only make the teeth look and function better, it will also protect the teeth and decrease the rate of wear and deterioration of worn teeth over time.
