A smile is the best thing you can wear, so it is essential that you feel happy and confident with yours. Here at Caterham Smiles we have taken the time to research and take an interest in Cosmetic Dentistry procedures giving you a ‘Smile Makeover’. A Smile Makeover can drastically change the way your smile looks and help improve the colour of your teeth, replace any missing teeth you may have, and help with chips or cracks or the shape of your teeth. There is a solution for everyone, and we will consider your facial features, age, characteristics to create the perfect smile for you. We have a team of dentists with years of experience to help and plan your dream, smile with you and ensure that you are 100% happy with the procedure you are going for.
The most popular form of Cosmetic Dentistry we complete here at Caterham Smiles is Teeth Whitening. Over time your teeth can become yellow or discoloured so Teeth whitening is the process to reverse this. It is the process of lighting the colour of your teeth by changing the colour of the tooth’s enamel through the process of one of our treatment options. Teeth whitening can transform the look of your smile, improving your tooth’s appearance and improving your confidence.
There are many reasons why your teeth can discolour. The type of foods you eat and the things you drink have the most significant effect. High in starch food can have a big impact, and also drinking a lot of tea, coffee, and wine can cause stains on your teeth. Tobacco also has a significant effect on the colouration of teeth.
We have two teeth whitening options here at Caterham Smiles. They are Boutique Whitening and Airflow Cleaning. Boutique Whitening, where we take impressions of your teeth where the lab will create custom trays to fit your teeth. There will be some chemicals and whitening products you have to put in the trays and then wear them overnight. The other procedure we do here is called Airflow Cleaning. For this, we use a jet of compressed air, water, and bicarbonate particles, polishing the teeth gently and wiping away stains, creating a bright white smile for only £75.
Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured Porcelain shells custom-made to fit your teeth. They will be bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They help protect the tooth’s surface and enamel and help to give you a fresh, clean smile. They are bright white, so they will look natural and give your teeth a clean look. Not only do they help improve the colour of the teeth, but they also help to close spaces and enhance the shape of your teeth.
The process of having veneers fitted is known as a Dental Facelift. They help improve the appearance of your teeth and make them look naturally clean. Veneers can also be used to eliminate gaps between the teeth, making sure you no longer have a ‘gummy smile’ and helping to straighten the look and shape of your teeth.
As the veneers need to be fitted to your natural teeth, we advise that your teeth are relatively intact and minimally restored or filled to be able to receive the best possible outcome from having the veneers treatment. Ensuring that you take care of your veneers and they can resist most forces made by a regular diet.
For Cosmetic Dentistry in Selsdon, Invisalign is another very popular treatment. By using clear plastic trays or aligners, instead of metal brackets, your teeth can become straight in a much more realistic time scale.
Our Invisalign specialists will provide the best programme for you and will inform you of the duration of your case as well as the pricing options. With Invisalign, you could start seeing results in as little as a few weeks, depending on how complex your case is. However, the procedure usually takes around six months to be fully completed.
Brushing your teeth regularly is the best way to avoid cavities, and if you don’t do so, they will inevitably form. White fillings are always the best option when treating a cavity. There are many different types of fillings, and if you already have Amalgam or Silver fillings and want to change to white, we can replace them.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Caterham offers a White filling option when treating because they are nearly invisible and natural. They match the colour of your teeth and can even make them appear brighter. They efficiently protect any further decay to the tooth by sealing the hole or crack that caused the cavity and bond the filling to the tooth. They are a long-lasting and the most natural way to have a filling.
Gum Line Correction
If you feel like you have a ‘gummy smile’, this procedure might be for you. A gummy smile is where there is an excessive amount of gum above the teeth under your lip. This is an embarrassment for many people, but we can help here at Caterham Smiles. The Gum Line correction treatment will help enhance the appearance of your gums and improve gum tissue health, creating a beautiful smile. We can also offer ‘Gum Lift’ treatment, which we use alongside Veneers and Crowns treatments to enhance the look of your teeth and gums.
Any remaining teeth you may have are extracted on the day of surgery, where 4-6 Implants will be placed, upper arch and lower. Before you go ahead with the procedure, our dental nurses will discuss all alternative treatment options with you.
The All-On-4 treatment method is the most in-depth type of Cosmetic treatment we have available. Essentially it means ‘all teeth are being supported on four dental implants’. Another name for it is ‘Same Day, Same Teeth’. It is a conventional implant that takes around six months plus additional time for recovery. It is a fixed bridge attached to a dental implant where we will have to remove any remaining teeth to fit it. As this is an extensive treatment option, the dentists will discuss any other options with you, having this as a last resort if nothing else is suitable.
We can arrange for you to have sedation on the day of surgery to help you feel more relaxed and at ease if you are a nervous or anxious patient. The Implants will be placed in your mouth, and an implant-retained Bridge will also be fitted, completely transforming your smile. A lot of aftercare goes with this treatment option, so you must keep it up and listen to our dentists, who will provide you with complete care and advice.
There is a wide range of cosmetic procedure options for you and your smile. We are happy to go through your choices and discuss the best treatment option for you. Please visit or contact us here at Caterham Smiles, and we will be happy to help and provide you with the best treatment and care possible.
