Smile Design And Cosmetic Dentistry
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a broad category that includes a number of treatments involved with facial aesthetics and smile improvement. There are many aspects that patients may want to change about their smile, including: misaligned teeth, gums showing, discoloured and stained teeth, different shaped teeth, and missing teeth.
Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and it is only obvious that you would want to feel confident as you present your smile to the world.
Whether the way you look is important for the type of work you do, or you may simply want to enhance your smile for personal reasons, we have experts that can’t wait to take your smile to new heights.
There are many different ways in which we can improve your smile by bringing symmetry, harmony and balance to your facial structure, all while ensuring that your oral health remains a priority. We offer a range of treatments such as replacement of amalgam fillings with composite restorations, cosmetic contouring, dental implants, bone and tissue grafts, porcelain bridges, crowns and veneers, tooth lengthening and periodontal treatments, teeth whitening, teeth adjustment and straightening (orthodontics) and dento-facial aesthetic dentistry.
What Is Dento-Facial Aesthetics?
Dento-facial aesthetics is a combination of a range of treatments which all focus on improving the overall appearance of your face and smile. Dental and oral health is still the main priority when it comes to these treatments, with professional cosmetic dentistry available to work in conjunction with our dento-facial aesthetic treatments.
There are many ways in which we can skilfully enhance your face. Very popular procedures include treating the muscles around the lips, mouth, eyes and forehead with derma fillers. Relaxing these muscles creates a softer, more youthful look that brings out your smile in the best possible way. We are also experts in correcting saggy skin, deep wrinkles and grooves that add to an aged appearance.
Your smile is an essential factor of your overall appearance, and at My Dentist St Leonards we conduct full oral restorations as part of our anti-aging dental procedures. We treat a wide range of conditions, such as Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders, gingival smile and tooth wear caused by grinding.
