What is cosmetic dentistry in Egham?

Cosmetic dentistry in Egham is a form of dental work that strives to improve the aesthetic appearance of a patient's smile. Despite common misconception, cosmetic dentistry not only works to improve the physical appearance, but can also positively affect the function of the teeth. For example, clear aligners (which are considered cosmetic at our clinic due to their invisible and therefore aesthetically pleasing appearance) work to straighten the teeth within the mouth. This leads to an easier brushing and flossing routine, consequently resulting in an improved level of oral health.

We understand that choosing a dental clinic to receive any dental procedure (whether this be your bi-annual dental check-up, or a more complex treatment) can be tricky, however we believe we are a great option!

The cosmetic dentistry in Egham we provide


Many of our patients may be aware of the more common forms of cosmetic dentistry on offer at our clinic (such as porcelain crowns and tooth whitening). However, they may not be aware that we also offer Invisalign and porcelain veneers.

What are Invisalign?


Invisalign are a popular brand provider of clear aligners within the UK, and have provided happy smiles for thousands of patients worldwide. We use Invisalign at our clinic to accommodate the ever growing demand for subtle orthodontics within the field of modern dentistry.

How do they work?


These clear aligners are plastic custom made trays which are replaced every several weeks, in order to encourage the teeth to move in a positive position. These trays are close to invisible and could therefore be considered as an easy option for older patients who do not wish for obvious dental work (or for those who feel as if conventional metal braces could hinder their career prospects).

The wide array of cosmetic dentistry on offer


In addition to our discrete orthodontic work, we also offer porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?


Porcelain veneers are wafer thin caps that are adhered to the surface of the teeth using a special dental glue, which aim to improve the aesthetic appearance of our patients' smiles!

Are porcelain veneers right for me?


If you are suffering from extrinsic or intrinsic staining of the teeth (and can not or do not wish to receive tooth whitening) then veneers could be a viable solution for you! Aside from yellowing of the teeth, decay or fragmentation may also be amended through the use of porcelain veneers, in addition to irregular spacing of the teeth (which cannot be fixed through the use of orthodontics).
