Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with esthetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and crowns. It falls under the umbrella term of “cosmetic” because it focuses on enhancing an individual’s appearance by improving their smile.
Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of methods and procedures. These procedures may also improve a person’s self-confidence in social settings or a professional environment.
People seek cosmetic dentistry because they are dissatisfied with their smile and want a “smile makeover.” We know how your smile can influence your self-confidence.

Dental implants are artificial structures that a dental surgeon places into a person's jawbone to replace a missing tooth. The surgeon places an implant into the jawbone using screw-like devices. They allow your dentist to put replacement teeth onto them after they are in place. It serves as a foundation for a crown, which is a prosthetic tooth.
Dental implants can be a solution to missing teeth, spaces between teeth or if you have severely infected, decayed or worn out teeth and misaligned teeth.
Veneers are thin shells that are permanently bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their alignment, shape, and shade and the overall appearance of the smile. They can be made of composite resin or porcelain.
Dental veneers are a cosmetic procedure that may be an irreversible solution to gapped teeth, broken, crooked or worn teeth, permanently discoloured teeth and replacement of old dental restorations.
Teeth can become discoloured due to various factors, including poor oral hygiene habits, age-related stained teeth, and the food we consume over time. Darker teeth can be lightened with special bleach, which can be done in the dental chair or at home.
We offer two options to whiten your smile these include at-home teeth whitening and in-chair teeth whitening.
The teeth whitening systems that we offer at Ashburton Dental Centre use at-home whitening kits that involve a mild bleaching gel in a custom-fitted tray worn over your teeth. This process allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. A 90-minute whitening treatment can also be done in our clinic by our dentist.
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth (referred to as a pontic) kept in place by abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Pontics can be made of different materials, including gold or alloy, but they are commonly made of porcelain to blend in with natural teeth. Natural teeth or implants support dental bridges.
Bridges can offer a solution to restore your smile and ability to speak and chew properly. Sometimes, dental problems such as gapped teeth or missing teeth may change the shape of your face. Dental bridges can replace the spaces and bring back the shape of your face. It can also prevent the remaining teeth from moving out of place. When the gap is small, and the teeth on each side of the gap require crowns, this treatment is most successful.
Crowns are caps that are permanently bonded to a damaged tooth. To match the colour of neighbouring teeth, porcelain choices are available.
The benefits of cosmetic dentistry are numerous and include improved dental health, improved self-confidence, and a more attractive white smile. Cosmetic dentistry is different from other types of dentistry because it focuses on improving the appearance of teeth rather than their function. It can be done in one visit or over several visits, depending on what you need.
There are many services to choose from, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants, dental bonding and orthodontics.
