Cosmetic Dentistry 

in North London

Cosmetic (or Aesthetic Dentistry), is the branch of Dentistry that is used to improve or enhance the appearance of teeth. 

 

We can improve the appearance of:

  • Crooked, misshapen or damaged teeth

  • Yellow, discoloured or dark teeth

  • Spaced teeth

  • Short teeth

  • Teeth that appear too long

  • Overlapped or crowded teeth

  • Teeth affected by trauma (for example, a knock or blow to the tooth; a road traffic accident or a broken tooth after a fall).

The art of Cosmetic Dentistry is in the analysis of your face. It is important that any changes that we make to your teeth harmonise with the shape of your face. We consider a number of factors in planning your new smile. These include:

  • Symmetry

  • Shape of your new teeth

  • Tooth proportions (relative to each other)

  • Tooth size (length and width)

  • Your gum line (How much gum shows when you smile)

  • Shape of your lips

  • The form of your smile line

  • Spacing at the tips of your teeth

There are many ways in which we can help you to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, from simple Teeth Whitening or Orthodontics (Invisalign®and Inman aligners) to Dental Veneers (see below) or Crowns.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth. They are made of either thin resin or porcelain and can be placed to:

  • correct poorly formed or mildly malpositioned teeth

  • close gaps between teeth

  • mask internal stains

  • restore partially broken-down teeth

Tooth preparation is minimal and confined to the enamel structure. The veneer is bonded to the tooth structure with tooth-coloured resin cement. Several visits are necessary to complete treatment.

Patients should be aware that this is usually an irreversible process because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Before considering cosmetic dentistry, we will need to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy, as dental disease can lessen the life of your new smile. A dental examination will allow us to see if there are any problems that need addressing first.
