The smile you deserve is only a call away. Cosmetic Dentistry at Michael Shipway.
Your perfect smile can be closer than you think. Did you know that only one in four of us in the UK are unhappy with our smile. An attractive smile and fresh breath are important to everyone. Here at Shipway Dental Practice, we have a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you look your best, feel great and enhance your self-esteem. We utilise the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry to transform the look and comfort of the teeth.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments include:
- White Fillings
- Teeth Whitening
All out treatments are affordable, pain free and quick if you have discoloured, worn or chipped teeth we have a solution that can get you smiling again with confidence.
Tooth coloured materials are now used routinely for filling teeth, in preference to the older and more commonly used silver metal filling material. The use of these composite materials which we can reliably bond to the tooth means that we can provide a very hard wearing and highly attractive final result to improve the look of your smile and allow you to laugh with confidence.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and change their colour, shape, size, or length.
Although veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create bright, white smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, they also protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments. Other benefits include durability, an improved smile appearance and the need for little-to-no removal of tooth structure compared to crowns.
Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Worn enamel: Over time, the thin, hard translucent substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled and discolored. Such wear and discoloration may be natural or result from a genetic predisposition. However, it often results from consuming soft drinks, tea or coffee; smoking; using certain medications, etc.
- Wear and tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.
- Genetics: Certain people are born with abnormal spacing between their teeth that widens with age.
- Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.
Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. This common dental restoration may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay or replace a pre-existing crown. It encases a needy tooth with a custom-designed material.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.
Dental bridges, like implants and partial dentures, are used to replace missing teeth.
