Cosmetic Dentistry Southampton
Advances in modern materials and techniques have meant that we can now offer treatment to improve the shape, colour and appearance of your teeth to give you the confidence you've always wanted. Modern techniques such as crowns, bridges, veneers, tooth-coloured fillings, orthodontics, tooth whitening and dental implants are all available at Stardent. This kind of treatment is aimed at giving you natural looking teeth and restoring your ability to eat anything you wish. What types of problems does cosmetic dentistry solve? If your teeth are dark or worn and make you look older; if gaps or chips make you feel self-conscious; or if crooked or discoloured teeth stop you from smiling fully, cosmetic dentistry can help. The negative effects of abnormal gum tissue or out-of-date dental treatment are also problems that can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry.
Renewed public awareness is allowing aesthetic dentistry to take its rightful place alongside other cosmetic procedures such as face-lifts. It is becoming less acceptable to have discoloured, uneven or missing teeth. Innovative dental techniques can undoubtedly create a more youthful and attractive look.
At Stardent we use the most modern technology including CEREC , in a comfortable and - soothing environment to provide the best cosmetic treatments such as:
Teeth Whitening - Tooth whitening makes it possible to whiten most yellowed or stained teeth even teeth stained by tobacco, coffee and tetracycline can be dramatically improved. The convenience of Power tooth whitening is the perfect choice for the busy individual, the results may vary and depend upon your initial tooth colour and oral hygiene.Read more...
Implants - Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, whether it's a single tooth, multiple Teeth, or a full set of dentures that you are replacing. Dentures, bridges or individual teeth attached to implants provide stability, a more secure fit and a more natural look and feel.
Bridges - When a tooth is missing it can cause a chain reaction of problems. Surrounding teeth may shift, causing stress to your jaw joint (TMJ) when you chew. It is much harder to clean teeth that have shifted, so harmful tartar can build up, which can cause cavities and gum disease. A bridge fills in this space, using the adjacent teeth for support. With the new technology available it is now possible to create an all porcelain bridge for the best cosmetic results.
White fillings or porcelain inlays - to replace silver fillings. Advances in dental materials technology have created strong new synthetic tooth-coloured restorative materials that help you look your best.
A beautiful choice If you decide you'd like your tooth restored with a white material, we can use either porcelain or composite resin, which is a plastic like substance. We'll carefully match the chosen material to your natural teeth, so the restoration will blend in well.
Strong and durable Both porcelain and composite resin bond securely to your tooth, so the restorations are extremely strong and durable. Also, because they are bonded, we can be more conservative when we prepare your tooth for the filling, so you retain more of your natural, healthy tooth.
All porcelain crowns - White crowns used to only be made of porcelain fused to metal, often leaving a dark grey area at the gum line.Using the latest CEREC technology we can create your crown entirely from porcelain in just ONE VISIT. All porcelain crowns are translucent, like your own natural teeth, so they look great.
Strength and beauty An all-porcelain crown is a custom-made restoration that is bonded to your tooth, covering it completely. They repair and strengthen damaged teeth, and can also be used to improve your appearance by covering discoloured or misshapen teeth.
Porcelain Veneers - Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are used to whiten teeth as well as correct problems like chipped, misshapen, crooked or worn teeth. Once they've been bonded to your teeth, veneers virtually become part of your teeth. You can use them like you would your own teeth, because the bond is extremely strong. Your final result is a more beautiful, natural looking new smile.Our Cosmetic expert Dr Najafi has many year of experinec using the latest CEREC technology to creat beautiful veneers in just ONE VISIT.She has completed hundreds of SAME DAY SMILE MAKE OVERS since she completed her advance training in CEREC about 5 years ago.Please see some of these cases in our photo gallery.
