Cosmetic Dentistry

Is there anything you want to change about your smile? Let’s talk about the ways we can improve the appearance of your teeth through cosmetic dentistry.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry and How is it Different from Other Dental Services?

Non-essential dental treatments that help improve your smile aesthetics are cosmetic dental services. While their main intention is to elevate the appearance of your teeth, some cosmetic dental treatments may offer some health benefits too. Depending on the cosmetic services received, patients may have an easier time cleaning their teeth properly, improving their bite, or reducing harmful habits, like teeth grinding.

Treatments that focus on restoring and maintaining oral health fall under general dentistry. Though our meticulous team works to deliver premium results that feel and look great, the primary concern with general dentistry is improving your oral health.

Investing in your smile through cosmetic dental treatments offers many advantages beyond an aesthetically-pleasing smile. Cosmetic dental services may:

Dental Issues We Solve with Cosmetic Dentistry

Some of our cosmetic dental solutions address teeth that are:

Cosmetic Dental Services at Our UK Dental Practice

From a quick single cosmetic dental treatment to an entire smile overhaul, The Bay Dental offers a suite of services to elevate your smile, making it one you want to show off.

At our practice, we are pleased to offer the following cosmetic dental treatments.

While teeth naturally darken with age, refreshing their colour with a brighter shade can help you look more youthful. Teeth whitening is one of the least invasive and fastest ways to change the appearance of your smile.

Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics)
We use aligner trays to help improve your bite and straighten your teeth to help you achieve a smile that is equal parts beautiful and healthy. Along with the aesthetic advantages, straighter teeth are easier to clean properly, contributing to healthier teeth and gums.

Cover chipped, cracked, or otherwise unsightly teeth with a permanent crown, which covers the entire exposed surface of a natural tooth. We measure and collect images of the treatment site, creating a custom crown that fits in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Fill the space of large gaps or missing teeth with a dental bridge – a restoration offers benefits beyond the cosmetic. A dental bridge uses abutment teeth or implants on either side of the missing tooth to hold a false tooth (or teeth) in place.

Our dentists permanently apply thin shells over the front surface of your teeth to cover discolouration, minor misalignment, and other tooth imperfections. We create a bespoke smile just for you, using veneers that make your teeth an attractive size, shape, and colour.

Cosmetic Bonding
When the size, shape, or colour of your teeth are a concern, we apply a natural tooth-coloured filling material to reshape and enhance your smile. This treatment requires no enamel removal, making it completely reversible if you so choose.

Partial or complete dentures typically restore the function of your teeth but also offer you a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Your dentures are made just for you, and we help you get a comfortable, secure fit so you can speak and eat confidently.

Similar to a dental bridge or dentures, bespoke implants replace missing teeth, giving back the function and appearance of your smile. The dental implant is a titanium post that replaces your tooth roots and secures to a restoration – such as a dental crown – to complete your smile.
