Here at Paul Lowe, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services, available individual or in conjunction with other treatments, to help you get the smile you’ve been dreaming of. Here is a breakdown of what we offer……
Fillings– Here at Paul Lowe, we can carry out fillings in order to rebuild any tooth substance that has been damaged due to decay. We can offer natural-coloured alternatives for cosmetic appeal. The different types of fillings are:
White and natural-coloured– These are in-keeping with the colour of your present teeth and therefore almost unnoticeable to the eye.
Amalgam silver fillings – These are hardwearing and strong ad have a good lifespan. Although they not the most conspicuous of colours, this does not pose too much of an issue, as they are generally used for the back of the mouth for molars.
Inlays – Inlays are useful when the quantity of tooth structure lost exceeds the size of a filling, but when a crown is not required. Inlays are generally used if a tooth needs a larger filling that overlaps the corner (commonly named a cusp). Our dental technician constructs your inlay in the dental laboratory and it is then cemented into a cavity in the tooth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures today.
The treatment is bespoke, allowing you to select the shade of white that you would like for your teeth. The procedure is also bespoke, as the whitening trays are specifically made for your teeth’s structure. This is because the trays are filled with a whitening agent that can damage your gums if it were to leek onto your gums. There have been many horror stories regarding at-home kits, where the trays are of a set size and can therefore impose potentially damage to your gums, leeking and irritating them.
Teeth whitening should always be performed by a professional – this will ensure a successful, safe result. There are several benefits that can be procured from teeth whitening including a boost in self-confidence and the desire to smile more than before! Before the procedure can be performed, the dental hygienist will deep clean your teeth, removing the staining and any build-up of bacteria. This not only renders your teeth more aesthetically pleasing but also healthier.
Veneers are often likened to a false fingernail placed, as they are designed to fit over the front of a broken or discoloured tooth in order to improve its appearance. Veneers are thin and easily secured in position with a bonding substance that acts as a cement.
Some benefits of veneers are:
- Your veneer is strong and durable so you can continue enjoying your favourite foods.
- If looked after properly, your veneer will last 10-15 years.
- They are the next bet thing to a real tooth, giving fantastic aesthetic results.
- The procedure is straightforward and non-invasive.
