A beautiful smile can make all of the difference in your confidence and your life. Some of the procedures we offer are:
- Teeth whitening

- Fillings that match the colour of your teeth
Over time teeth may become stained by the food and drink we consume. Teeth whitening is a simple non invasive method to brighten the smile. Here at Ainsty Dental Practice we use the Philips Zoom home whitening system.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. They can be used to change the colour shape and position of teeth.
Porcelain veneers typically require 2 visits spread over 1 to 2 weeks. At the first visit a small amount of tooth enamel needs to be removed in preparation for the veneer. The final appointment is to bond the veneer onto the tooth surface.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crown’s may be made of porcelain, metal or a combination of both. At the front of the mouth Porcelain crowns are an aesthetic solution to repair broken down teeth.
Porcelain crowns typically require 2 visits spread over 1 to 2 weeks. At the first visit some of the tooth structure needs to be removed in preparation for the crown. The final appointment is to bond the crown onto the tooth.
White fillings are now a viable alternative to metal fillings providing a cosmetic solution. Previously white fillings have been viewed to not last as long as metal fillings. Over the past years there have been improvements to the materials used in white fillings. White fillings are now a suitable long term restoration providing aesthetic results which do not show when we smile or laugh.
