Cosmetic Dentistry Belmont WA
A beautiful smile is one of the most sought-after features in cosmetic medicine. People from all backgrounds and professions want a white, straight smile, and we can help make it a reality.
Whether through minor adjustments or major changes, cosmetic dentistry aims to help people feel good about the way their teeth look.
There are many cosmetic procedures that can improve your teeth and correct issues such as discolouration, chips, gaps, or irregularities.

Common options include bonding, veneers, bleaching, reshaping, and crowns. In addition to cosmetic improvements, these procedures can help solve other oral problems as well.
These procedures vary in cost, complexity, and results. It is important to discuss your options with your dentist to determine the best procedure for you. The condition of your teeth is a major factor in finding a treatment, and the same technique that worked for someone else may not be the right one for you.
Teeth whitening products use bleaches (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) to break stains into smaller pieces, which make them harder to see and make your teeth brighter.
These bleaches do not work on all teeth, so it is important to consult your dentist before any treatment. Whitening will not be effective on caps, veneers, crowns, fillings or if the colour is caused by medications or injury.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance.
These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length.
Tooth reshaping, also called dental contouring, is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes small amounts of tooth enamel (the outer covering of the tooth) in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.
When cemented into place, the crowns fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Visiting your Dentist at Epsom Dental Care
Gathering all the necessary information before a cosmetic procedure is critical to being happy with the results. In particular, you should find out what the changes will look like, what to expect during treatment, and what kind of upkeep is required afterwards.
It would help if you also asked to see before and after pictures to make sure your expectations are realistic.
