Q: What are the benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry treatment?
A: Cosmetic Dentistry treatment allows for both examination and treatment of your dental and oral health, and helps you to make an informed choice about what aesthetic treatment will best improve your overall look. These treatments and knowledge help to improve your general physical and mental health because you learn to look after yourself better and can face the world with a confident smile knowing that you look good. For some people, this translates to greater choices, such as with life partner and job prospects where first impressions really count.
Q: What materials are used in Cosmetic Dentistry?
A: The types of materials used in Cosmetic Dentistry are similar to what is used in general dentistry, such as porcelain for crowns and veneers. The difference is that certain Cosmetic treatments may use more durable and comfortable materials, such as the STb Lingual System for braces and Cerinate for Lumineers. All these options can be explained to you by our dentist, who can also inform you of bio-compatible dental substances and processes.
Q: What types of technology are used in Cosmetic Dentistry?
A: A number of Cosmetic Dentists are opting to use the latest state-of-the-art technology, such as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) computer-based technology using CAD/CAM and 3D imaging software to design, prepare, make and fit artificial teeth through dental restoration. Other innovations include smart fillings that release calcium and phosphate ions to combat bacteria that can build on the teeth and gums from trapped food forming plaque.
Q: How safe is Cosmetic Dentistry?
A: As mentioned previously, Cosmetic Dentists are qualified and experienced general Dentists who have often completed additional training in Cosmetic surgery, or work alongside medical professionals for facial reconstructions. The materials and procedures are tried and tested, and have been approved for use. Our cosmetic Dentist can answer any questions you have about materials and treatments.
Each person’s medical and oral health differs, so it is important to fully inform our resident Dentist of your dental and medical history, including medications, so that we can provide you with treatments appropriate for you. At examination and diagnosis, our resident dentist will inform you of any possible risks and solutions for any side-effects. All treatments are provided pain-free with sensitivity to your needs, local anaesthetic where needed, and various sedative treatments to help you relax.
Q: Is Cosmetic Dentistry treatment permanent?
A: Cosmetic Dentistry is aimed at improving your oral health and facial appearance. The treatments are intended to build the overall physical and mental well-being of the patient.
Each treatment uses materials that have different rates of durability depending on the type of treatment and the patient’s overall wellbeing. Where Lingual braces may correct teeth structure irregularities within six weeks to eighteen months, dental implants can last up to thirty years. Our cosmetic Dentist will advise you on the treatments with duration appropriate to you. Visiting a dentist regularly, such as every six months, is recommended for all to meet oral health standards.
Q: How much does Cosmetic Dentistry cost?
A: The cost of Cosmetic Dentistry treatment really depends on the individual’s diagnosis, the dental practice, the type of treatments needed, and the materials used. Our Cosmetic Dentist can discuss this with you at examination and also provide you with payment plan options that can make Cosmetic Dental improvements affordable for you.
