The procedures include but not limited to teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, enamel shaping, gum contouring and more.

The bottom line is that cosmetic dentistry is a valuable investment in oneself, ultimately improving patient satisfaction and quality of life.

Teeth Whitening

There are a number of reasons why teeth become discoloured, such as old age, smoking and certain foods or drinks. Teeth whitening involves removing stains and discoloration from teeth to improve their aesthetic appearance. There are many benefits to this process, including a boost in confidence and self-esteem, as well as an improved overall appearance. Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve one’s appearance and boost self-confidence, making it a popular choice for people looking to improve their smile.

Our team of dental experts will assess the most suitable whitening option for you, as they may be a number of options available depending on your desired result. It’s also extremely important for one of our clinicians to see if you are dentally fit to undergo whitening treatment, as there may be underlying issues that need to be addressed beforehand. This highlights the importance of having your teeth whitened by a dental professional and avoiding D.I.Y. whitening kits – which can often carry many risks!

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is rapidly gaining popularity as a cosmetic dental procedure. This remarkable process involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of the teeth. The resin is then sculpted to overcome any flaws in the appearance of the teeth like chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, or other imperfections. Composite bonding is ideal for modifying teeth size, shape, and enhancing their overall appearance.

Another benefit of composite bonding is its minimally-invasive nature, which does not require heavy tooth preparation or removal of enamel. Moreover, it is an efficient and reliable option that provides fantastic results. The effect can be achieved in a single visit to the practice, taking as little as 30-60 minutes per tooth. With adequate care, the composite bonding procedure’s results can last for several years, making it a long-term solution for enhancing the appearance of teeth. Choose composite bonding for a beautiful and confident smile!


Veneers are an excellent cosmetic dental treatment option for those looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. The thin shells, which can be made of either porcelain or composite resin, offer a minimally invasive way to enhance your smile. By covering up discolored, chipped, misshapen, or damaged teeth, veneers can help you achieve a natural, healthy-looking smile. Additionally, they are perfect for closing gaps between your teeth and matching the color and shape of your natural teeth.

Using a special adhesive material, the shells are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth, which ensures their durability and longevity. With regular exams and hygiene visits, veneers can last for many years, making them an excellent investment in your oral health and aesthetic. By opting for veneers, you can enjoy a more confident and beautiful smile, without the need for extensive dental work.
