How lovely is your smile? Do you love it or do you wish it could be a bit whiter, a bit more even? Do you grin at yourself in the mirror and at all your friends, or do you bare your teeth and study the imperfections they have?
The imperfections may be minor or dramatic, but if they are stopping you from smiling, then it could be a good idea to bring your smile along to Healthy Smile Centre, your dentist in Alexandria, and find out what we can do to improve its appearance.
At your dentist in Alexandria, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments designed to make smiles look better.
This is the most popular way to improve the appearance of teeth. Teeth whitening uses custom-made trays that fit your teeth exactly. These are filled with whitening gel. If you want to get your teeth whitened quickly for a special occasion, we can carry out the treatment in around an hour at the dentist in Alexandria.
Alternatively, you can take home a somewhat weaker concentration of gel and carry out the treatment yourself over about a fortnight.
We always carry out a thorough screening of your teeth to make sure they are in good condition and won’t be damaged by the whitening gel.
Covering over damage
Whether you chipped a tooth at school, or have some other kind of mild surface imperfection, including small gaps, worn edges, or slight leans or twists, we can use veneers to cover them over. Veneers are very thin sheaths of dental porcelain that go over the front of your teeth. They are a bit like having false nails fitted, but your veneers will have a much longer life, often around 10 years. The veneers are made specifically for you to blend in with your other teeth.
If, when you smile, you show too much gum, it may be that your gums are making your teeth shorter than they really are. We use a laser to remove excess gum tissue and expose more of the tooth.
Not sure what you need? No problem, book a consultation with the dentist in Alexandria.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
