All of the cases below are real patients who have been treated at the practice. This represents a small sample of the results that can be achieved with modern aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry.

Veneers and Aesthetic Dental Work

Porcelain veneers are thin facings of porcelain cemented onto teeth to improve their position and appearance. Beautiful results can be achieved – have your own dazzling smile!
Some of the tooth surface usually needs to be removed to provide space to fit the veneer. This is usually only a small amount of reduction (approximately 0.7mm) but if teeth are badly misaligned or discoloured then greater amounts of tooth may need to be removed.
Dr Carroll has also completed extensive research on Porcelain veneers and presented his findings at the international British Dental Association Conference. Paul also lectures nationally to dentists on this subject.

Bonding

Bonding uses tooth coloured filling materials to improve the appearance of teeth. This approach has the advantage in that the filling material is bonded directly to the teeth so minimal or no tooth drilling is required. It is usually completed in one visit and the costs for this procedure are usually lower than with veneers.
Dr Parmar is an acknowledged expert on this approach to treating worn and discoloured teeth and lectures internationally on this subject.

Whitening

We are all individuals and as such our teeth vary just as our hair and skin colour do. However, some people may not be happy with their existing tooth colour and wish for a lighter, brighter appearance. In situations where the teeth are healthy and in good alignment whitening procedures may be the answer.
This is one of the simplest methods of improving your smile and is a highly effective way of lightening the colour of your teeth until you are happy with their shade. “At home whitening” can be used which involves using a customised mouth guard into which you add a small amount of whitening gel, which is then worn overnight. After two to three weeks your teeth will gradually lighten – whitening when prescribed by a dentist is a very reliable, safe and effective method of brightening your smile, harmless to the teeth.

We also offer Enlighten whitening (www.enlightensmiles.com). This is the most advanced whitening system available and guarantees excellent whitening result. it uses a combination of at home whitening with trays and in surgery power boost whitening for maximum effect.

All ceramic crowns

These crowns are metal free so they have fantastic properties. They reflect light in such a way that they do not appear as “false teeth” but look real and alive. Because they contain no dark metal there is no chance of a dark line appearing around the neck of the crown.
All ceramic crowns are an excellent choice for front teeth.
