Cosmetic dentistry is a term used to describe dental procedures that aim to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. At Reva Dental cosmetic procedures offered include tooth whitening, composite restorations, porcelain veneers , crowns, bridges and dentures.
Teeth whitening is often the easiest and most cost effective way of improving the appearance of your smile. The effect is achieved by lightening the natural colour of teeth without removing or damaging the surface.
HOME TEETH WHITENING
At your Home Whitening appointment, the dentist with take impressions of your teeth, from which a study model is made. This is sent to our lab where specially moulded trays tray (or ‘pockets’) are made which will fit your teeth perfectly. Approximately 3 days after your initial appointment these will be ready and will be given to you along with your home whitening kit which also includes special teeth whitening solution. This solution is added to the tray ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces and that no damage is done to the soft gums. You can wear the tray while asleep or for short periods during the day or at night with results normally seen over 1-2 weeks.
Where front teeth are either fractured or discoloured porcelain veneers can be considered. Veneers are thin, tooth shaped and tooth coloured porcelain layers which can be used to cover or repair front teeth.
Veneers are used to make teeth look natural and straight by improving their colour, shape and position. They are particularly effective when teeth are discoloured, broken, chipped or crooked. Each veneer is individually made for you to fit perfectly over the surface of your existing teeth. They perfectly match the colour, appearance and translucence of your natural teeth, restoring, and often enhancing your appearance.
