"The world always.looks brighter from behind a smile"

At the Smile Shop, our special interests are in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics.

 

A single tooth or a total makeover, a natural smile or a dazzling Hollywood smile - all are achievable and we can help by giving you a functional and beautiful appearance.

 

TOOTH WHITENING

All our systems produce superb results enabling you to have a natural youthful white smile. When it comes to teeth whitening, it is important to have your treatment done by a qualified dentist. Non-dental practitioners should not be carrying out teeth whitening procedures or recommending at-home whitening treatments.

 

 

 

 

 

CROWNS AND BRIDGES

Unattractive  teeth can be masked using crowns or veneers. Have you a space between your teeth or a missing tooth – these gaps can be filled using bridgework either attached to a crown or by the latest in adhesive dentistry where a tooth is bonded to an adjoining tooth with adhesive wings.

Up to the minute ceramic technology means crowns and bridges are more and more toothlike and rarely nowadays do you get the tell tale black margins at the gums

 

NATURAL COLURED FILLINGS

Those unpleasant old black mercury fillings can now be replaced with tooth coloured fillings which can’t be seen when you laugh or smile

ORTHODONTICS

 If you don’t want to go for the full smile makeover then a crooked smile can be easily straightened nowadays with braces. And fear not, adult braces don’t need to leave you looking like Ugly Betty, there are now many advanced invisible braces that not even those getting up close and personal will notice.

 

IMPLANTS

A dental implant is an artificial substitute/replacement for the root portion of your natural tooth and is anchored into a pre-drilled socket in your jaw-bone to support a crown, bridge or secure a denture firmly in place. Implants are made from titanium, a material that is well tolerated by bone and integrates easily with bone tissue. During the placement of a dental implant, the goal is to achieve a close contact between the outer surface of the implant and the surrounding bone tissue so they can “fuse” together (osseointegration), creating a stable support for the new teeth.

 

DENTURES

Are your dentures tired and worn looking?

Do they look too much like false teeth?

We can replace them using quality, natural looking teeth and materials, giving you the choice of a more natural look.
