Smile with
confidence

Cosmetic dentistry

We can help you get the smile you have always wanted


Did you know that one in four of us in the UK are unhappy with our smile? At Discovery Dental Care we can use a variety of treatments to straighten, reshape, lighten and repair  your teeth and therefore improve the appearance of your smile.

One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. That's why at Discovery Dental Care we understand how important it is to smile with confidence. A perfect smile helps to make the right impression when it counts.

Smile makeovers

We understand that your smile is the first impression you give and often the lasting memory you leave. That’s why at Discovery Dental Care we are passionate about creating beautiful smiles through a unique blend of cosmetic dental treatments, plus regular high-quality hygiene therapy. We call this a 'smile makeover' service and we're always delighted by the life-changing results achieved. The goal of a smile makeover is to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. It could include teeth whitening, orthodontics (adult braces) or the placement of natural-looking veneers or crowns to enhance your smile and disguise imperfections.

The first step towards your dream smile is always a friendly, no-obligation consultation. Following a thorough examination and an informal discussion about your smile goals, we will develop a treatment plan that's tailored to your unique needs.

Bridges

If you require a more extensive restoration than a crown or have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, a good solution is a bridge. Bridges are either fully ceramic or made of a metal base fused with porcelain, which makes them hard-wearing and look more like real teeth. A bridge helps to strengthen the prepared teeth and makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can't come out.

Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care of your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and that you can prevent bad breath.

Crowns

Crowns are used to build broken or decayed teeth and can be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. We offer a range of crowns which include:

Metal Ceramic Crown

These are made from a metal interior or base to which a porcelain crown is fused.

This type of crown is robust, long-lasting and normally cheaper than fully ceramic crowns. However, there can be cosmetic issues with metal ceramic crowns and the metal base can appear dark/grey at the gum line.

Full Gold Crowns

These are the strongest and longest lasting crowns. This type of crown requires the least amount of tooth preparation and can last for up to 40 years or more. The disadvantage is the colour as many people would prefer a tooth-coloured crown.

All Ceramic Crowns

These are cosmetic crowns made purely from ceramic. There is no metal base so no dark or grey line at the gum margin. They are strong, long lasting and extremely aesthetic.

Veneers

Dental veneers are wafer thin yet incredibly strong and durable porcelain laminates.  They will function as a normal tooth meaning you can continue to bite, chew and enjoy all your favourite foods without worrying about the consequences..

If you don’t feel confident when you smile, maybe because your teeth are discoloured, chipped or uneven, then veneers are your answer. They're perfect if your teeth are just a little twisted or you’ve been looking for a solution without the need for orthodontics or braces.

After

Before the treatment I was so self-conscious of the discolouring, so much that I was always embarrassed to smile.

Having veneers fitted was particularly important to me due to a change in job which involves meeting more people, I now spend most of my day talking to others-and I can concentrate on the conversation rather than worrying about my smile. And giving presentations is now quite enjoyable!

The experience of being in the care of Discovery Dental Care was excellent, everything was explained fully and Angela gave me the confidence to have the treatment done, most importantly I felt completely safe throughout-the quality of care given shows why ‘Care’ is in the name of Discovery Dental Care. I chose porcelain veneers, perhaps more expensive but definitely worth the extra investment.

Yes, it was expensive in terms of cost, but the benefit of such a boost in confidence and being able to smile care-free, it wasn’t expensive at all, my only regret is that I waited so long before deciding to go ahead!

Teeth whitening

Do you hide your discoloured teeth? Being able to smile freely and confidently can positively affect our personal and professional lives.

At Discovery Dental Care we offer non-invasive home teeth whitening. 

A simple and effective way to lighten your teeth, tooth whitening treatment will give your smile a renewed sparkle and will improve your self-confidence. It effectively treats discolouration, leaving you with beautiful teeth that are many shades whiter!

‘I have just completed a short course of treatment with Angela Watson, and I can honestly say that from my initial check up and treatments to my crown being completed today, I felt very relaxed, calm, well informed & supported throughout. I couldn’t have asked for a better dentist and practice staff.’ Thank you! ‘
