Cosmetic Dentistry

The dentists at City Dentists have helped thousands of patients to improve their smiles. Are you looking to improve your smile? If you have stained, missing, broken or crooked teeth there are a number of cosmetic dentistry options that can be used to give you that winning smile.

Dental veneers can be made of composite (white filling) or porcelain (ceramic). Composite veneers are lower in cost and usually applied to your teeth in one visit. They have the advantage that often little or no tooth is removed to place them. With porcelain veneers the teeth are adjusted in shape and a mould is taken which is sent to a dental ceramist (dental technician). They construct the veneers in the desired colour and shape to fit your teeth perfectly. Your dentist will then bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth at your second visit. Porcelain veneers are generally more durable that composite veneers.

Porcelain crowns can be used for more broken down teeth where the remaining tooth structure needs more protection than a veneer can provide. So a porcelain crown covers over more of the tooth structure and similarly to a porcelain veneer is done over two visits. Read more about dental crowns…

Wellingtons’ best dental ceramists construct all of our porcelain veneers and crowns. We prefer to have all porcelain work for our patients done locally to ensure you get the best results.

Tooth whitening is another effective way to improve the overall colour of your teeth. Read more about our tray bleaching system…

Dental implants can give you a tooth where you have lost one in the past, restoring that smile. Find out more about dental implants…

Dental bridges are another effective way to fill the gap where you have lost a tooth. Read more about dental bridges…
