Cosmetic Dentistry

Patients search for a cosmetic dentist for many reasons. They may suffer a dental injury or age-related wear and tear. Maybe they just don't like their misaligned smile or dark stained teeth. Regardless of what you want to change we are here to help with frank and friendly advice and a lot of cosmetic dentistry skills and experience.

Steps to a new smile

Whether you are looking for a smile makeover or some kind of cosmetic restoration the place to start is at your initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist. This is always free of charge for new patients and this is how it works.

  1. We give you form with a list of dental issues (see below) and you tick off what you want to change.
  2. We discuss these problems with you to ensure you know the limits to what can be done. For example orthodontic treatment is great at realigning your teeth but it’s not going to change their shape.
  3. We form a plan with you and give you a copy to take away.
  4. You can consider it at home and once you are happy we can proceed.

Cosmetic dentistry review

This is the form we offer new patients. "What don't you like about your teeth?"

  • I have crowded or crooked teeth
  • I have spaces between my teeth
  • My teeth are too big
  • I have a gummy smile
  • I don't like my underbite
  • My teeth are different colours
  • I am experiencing jaw pain
  • I have missing teeth
  • I have dark teeth
  • My teeth give me speech problems
  • I don't like my overbite
  • I have ugly old dental crowns

Measurable results and a visible difference

Here's an example of this approach in action for one of our Glasgow patients. Marion came to us looking for a complete dental makeover. We gave her the form to fill in and she gave us a whole list of dental issues.

  • My teeth are chipped and ground down
  • My front teeth are too big
  • I don't like the dark colours, my yellow teeth and the different colours of my teeth
  • I have stained fillings
  • My teeth aren't straight

You can see from the before and after photos here that we were able to help Marion and she was delighted with the results. You can read more about the cosmetic techniques we used here.

Cosmetic Case Studies

Replacing a porcelain crown on an incisor is one of the more sensitive jobs in cosmetic dentistry because it is in such an obvious place and of such a high cosmetic value to the patient.

In this dental case study from our Glasgow practice you can read - and see - how we went about replacing the old discoloured porcelain crown with a new more translucent porcelain crown which had been shaped and shaded to perfection by our partnering dental laboratory.

We have many more dental case studies throughout this website. As always, if you have any questions or would like to talk to the cosmetic dentists is our Glasgow surgery contact us whenever you are ready.
