Using cosmetic dentistry to create your ideal smile

The key thing to remember about cosmetic dentistry is that it is all about you. At Burwell Dental Surgery in Cambridge we know that a smile is a deeply personal thing – the term “ideal smile” will mean one thing to one person, and something entirely different to the next.

When you come into our Cambridge practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, your cosmetic dentist, Dr Mabel Saw, will work closely with you to find out what you dislike about your current smile, and what your personal concept of an ideal smile is. She will then talk you through the pros and cons of all the relevant treatment options at our Cambridge clinic, enabling you to make an informed choice.

Cambridge cosmetic dentistry options

Burwell Dental Surgery in Cambridge has an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu, and we are confident that we can find the perfect treatment to suit your needs – whatever they may be. Whether you require a quick course of teeth whitening or a more extensive procedure, your dentist will create a fully customised treatment plan and explain all procedures in depth.

Below are some dental complaints commonly heard at our Cambridge clinic, along with the cosmetic dentistry solution your dentist may offer. . .

Stained/discoloured teeth

Teeth whitening is the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry, and is a safe and rapid way to remove common stains such as those caused by tea, coffee, or smoking from the teeth. It must only be carried out by a dentist or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription.

For cases of permanent discolouration, your dentist can use porcelain veneers – either one to cover a single tooth, or a full set to create a lasting smile makeover.

Crooked or gappy teeth

Veneers can also work to improve the appearance of mildly crooked or gappy teeth. We also use Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces at our Cambridge clinic.

Visible metal fillings or crowns

We can use tooth-coloured alternatives to replace old, discoloured, or obvious metal fillings and crowns. Your dentist will ensure that the new restorations match the natural shade of your teeth.
