Cosmetic Dentistry

Look great by improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Services range from quick fixes on a single tooth, to full mouth makeovers. Improving your smile on a budget can be as simple as having a professional clean, teeth whitening, or single or multiple veneers.

Transform your smile with some improved teeth!

Get ready for some very teethy pics!

Cosmetic dentistry does not have to cost a fortune. Cosmetic dentistry can be simple and quick. In a single visit we can change dark teeth, stained teeth, uneven teeth, broken teeth and yellow teeth into something worth smiling about.

Do you ever cover your mouth when you laugh? Do you stay away from close up photographs? Do you smile with your mouth closed? If your teeth are stopping you from having a carefree doesn't have to be this way!

In this post we will cover a range of options to improve your smile. The pictures displayed are all dental work done at Bytes Dental.

The single dark tooth

Option 1 for the dark tooth. Composite resin veneer. White resin is applied to the front of the tooth to mask the colour.

Only one tooth was veneered with composite resin

Option 2 for discoloured teeth. Porcelain veneer. Like a false fingernail, porcelain is crafted to the tooth shape and bonded into place.

Two porcelain veneers were placed on the lower teeth and 4 on top.

Option 3 for a dark tooth. Ceramic crown. If the tooth is weak as well as discoloured, a full crown can cover and protect the tooth with a stronger material.

The old composite resin veneers were eventually replaced with ceramic crowns

Option 4 for a dark tooth. Internal bleaching where the dead tooth is whitened from the inside.

Internal bleaching has lightened the tooth, but results can be unpredictable.

Multiple discoloured teeth

Option 1 for discoloured teeth. Tooth whitening with Pola Whitening Gel.

Whitening done via the slow and safe method, limiting sensitivity.

Option 2 for discoloured teeth. Composite resin veneers. Quick, inexpensive, reversible.

Three teeth were veneered with composite resin.

Combination of composite resin veneers and a porcelain bridge

Option 3 for discoloured teeth. Porcelain veneers. High quality, crafted, shiny porcelain. Teeth may need to be cut to allow for porcelain to align the teeth. More details about porcelain veneers here.

Antibiotics had stained these teeth. Porcelain veneers to the rescue!

Crowded teeth

Option 1 for crowded teeth. Orthodontics. Either fixed braces or invisalign clear trays can move the teeth.

Fixed braces. Case done by orthodontist Roger Peate.

Option 2 for crowded teeth. Veneers can cover the crowding if it is mild. Teeth that stick out may need to be cut back to allow for the veneers to align.

Teeth that have become worn down can be rebuilt with composite resin

The teeth were not moved, just resculpted with composite resin.

Adult patients who do not want braces, can have resin veneers to straighten teeth.

Missing teeth options (but that's another chapter...)

Option 1. A removable partial denture.

Option 2. A fixed ceramic bridge, which joins the teeth together to fill the gap.

Option 3. A dental implant. A specialist will surgically place the implant into the bone and let it heal for 6 months. A crown tooth can then be attached to the implant, filling the gap.
