Cosmetic dentistry or Appearance dentistry really includes any dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and/or smile. The term could be considered to be a little redundant as dentistry by nature has the goal of improvement in the appearance and function of a patient’s teeth!
Riccarton Dentists offer the most common cosmetic dental procedure, Tooth Whitening, which is a dentist-supervised treatment for lightening discoloured teeth and can achieve very good results.
Cosmetic dentistry may also involve the use of tooth-coloured filings, bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, gum treatment and CEREC Ceramic Restoration, all provided by Riccarton Dentists. Dental specialities that predominantly focus on dental cosmetics are prosthodontics and orthodontics and we refer patients to local specialists if these treatments are required.
