Our Guide to Cosmetic Dentistry – Costs & Options You Should Know

In this article:

Are you consistently bothered by the condition of your teeth? Has smiling been an issue for you? If your teeth are discolored, broken, chipped, stained, worn, misshapen, have gaps in between them or misaligned, advanced cosmetic dentistry can now fix them and give you a perfect smile!

As Cosmetic dentists we help to address aesthetic issues that may make you feel self-conscious and lower your self-esteem. Along with improving the appearance of your teeth, many procedures will help improve your overall dental health, and it will be worth every penny you will spend.

Our Cosmetic dentists will examine the condition of your oral health and work closely with you to come up with a specialized treatment plan. Here are three common options for you to consider and the costs associated with each procedure:

  1. Dental Veneers

    Dental Veneers are used to cover badly broken or stained teeth, reshape the teeth, close up gaps, and even correct crowding in the mouth. This versatile technique is also sometimes referred to as “Hollywood smile.”

    Dental veneers are custom-built shells of tooth-colored porcelain or resin that are wafer-thin and cover the teeth’s front surface. The process involves removal of about half a millimeter of enamel from the surface of the tooth, then the dental veneer is and bonded to the front, changing their length, size, and color. It takes about two separate appointments for the procedure to be fully completed, and if properly maintained, can last up to 15 to 20 years.

    Cost: Ranging from £350-£450 per tooth

  2. Dental Crowns

    Used to replace a broken tooth or restore a chipped tooth, a dental crown is a permanent fixture. Before the dental crown is fitted your dentist will remove any decay and shape the tooth so it is ready to receive the dental crown. The dental crown will be fitted over the prepared natural tooth almost like a protective cocoon. This not only provides a new replacement tooth that can be used like your other natural teeth but also prolongs the life of the original tooth.

    Crowns can be made from porcelain-fused-to-metal, metal, ceramic, or resin and take about two one-hour appointments. They can keep a cracked tooth together or prevent a weak tooth from breaking. Crowns or caps can also be used to cover severely discoloured or misshapen teeth through cosmetic procedures.

    Cost: Starting from £650 each

  3. Teeth Whitening

    This procedure is probably one of the simplest and least expensive ways to enhance your smile. Teeth whitening is ideal for yellow or discolored teeth, which can be due to consuming some food and drinks, red wine, tea, and coffee. Teeth discoloration is also part of the natural ageing process, as well as genetics. There are two types of teeth whitening that we offer:

    Zoom Teeth Whitening

    Zoom teeth whitening can only be sold by a dentist and is a clinical form of teeth whitening. A retainer is used to add the whitening gel to before you go to bed at night. The whitening gel then whitens your teeth overnight while you sleep. In the morning you wake up and brush your teeth as usual.

    It is important not to consume any food or drinks that have colouring in such as red wine, curry or anything else that might affect the colour of your teeth as during the whitening process they will be much more susceptible to staining.

    Enlighten Teeth Whitening

    Enlighten is the Ferrari if teeth whitening. It is the only teeth whitening treatment that guarantees your teeth reach a D1 colour. This is the whitest they will do. The treatment is administered here at the clinic by your dentist,
