Cosmetic Dentistry In Canterbury

Cosmetic dentistry (sometimes known as aesthetic dentistry or smile-makovers) covers a broad range of treatment of which the ultimate aim is the same – to provide you with a beautiful smile and functional long-lasting teeth.

Orthodontics (the straightening of teeth) is much more commonplace in adults than it ever was. 

For most of us (particularly those who can recall their teenage years being marred by a distinctly metallic smile) the thought of having braces sends a shiver down the spine. Invisalign and Cfast, however, are just as effective as the traditional metal brace whilst being nearly invisible and also removable for when you are eating or brushing. The system is a set of plastic aligners that gradually straighten your teeth, bypassing much of the discomfort and inconvenience normally associated with orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign and Cfast are comfortable to wear and socially acceptable, in fact as the name suggests they almost impossible to detect when worn. If one of our qualified dentists make a decision on whether Invisalign or Cfast is an appropriate option for you (following a preliminary examination) a precision impression of your teeth is taken and a proposed schedule of treatment is sent to the company. The system then uses its advanced 3D computer technology to produce sets of custom-made aligners that you wear in sequence for about 2 weeks before changing to the next one in the series.

This treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change regularly for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move, little by little, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental practitioner

Other, more traditional methods involve short term (4-6 months) of braces using wires and brackets.

It’s no secret that film stars and celebrities keenly seek this form of treatment to create their perfect smile. You may say it’s a professional requirement. This is considered to be the state–of–the–art cosmetic treatment and is now widely available to anyone who wants it.

Unlike caps and crowns, veneers only cover the front surface of a tooth. They are individually handcrafted from porcelain by a highly skilled experienced technician. They are used to rectify many defects, examples of which are shown in the photo gallery. These include closing gaps, realigning crowded and protruding teeth, and whitening discoloured teeth.

Porcelain veneers are very strong and last up to fifteen years, providing a lasting smile. They look very natural so people will not know you've had the treatment unless you tell them. They are easy to look after with no special care needed. Done properly and with careful brushing and maintenance, crowns and veneers can last several decades before they are replaced.

Teeth Whitening

Perhaps one of the most accessible and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments available today is teeth whitening. Here at Bradley and Partners we use a fast-acting, pain free system which can lighten your teeth quickly and safely, producing a dramatic improvement in your smile. Whitening is also particularly useful after you've had your teeth straightened to complete a beautiful smile-makeover. Whitening is perfectly safe in the experienced hands of our trained clinicians and can be repeated periodically to keep your smile in tip-top order!
