Cosmetic Dentistry in West Auckland
A smile can truly brighten up a room. If you are not happy with the appearance of your teeth, you may not feel in control, at ease or attractive. Having a genuine smile can do much more than just improve your appearance – smiling often can enhance your general health and wellbeing, as well as improve your confidence.
Titirangi Dental offers a range of dental services to give you the smile that you want, including teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and braces.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Let your most confident smile shine through with Zoom! Teeth Whitening. Tooth stains and discolouration can be caused by many things, such as age, tobacco use, consumption of dark foods and drinks, trauma, etc. A whiter smile is a healthier smile, so don’t trust over the counter products to get the job done for you.
Titirangi Dental provides Zoom in-office where we can achieve up to 8 shades whiter for your teeth within an hour. With Zoom at-home, you can achieve the same great results in one to two weeks.
Veneers are a staple in cosmetic dentistry. They involve ultra-thin sculpted pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. They serve to improve the function and appearance of teeth that have been significantly discoloured, chipped, pitted, malformed, crooked or spaced apart. True to the promise of cosmetic dentistry, in some cases, we even alter the fullness of your upper lip in order to obtain a better balance of your profile.
Unlike crowns or caps, porcelain laminate veneers don’t require the removal of a lot of tooth structure. Our veneers are handcrafted in a dental laboratory from an impression we have taken after tooth preparation.
During the first preparation visit, we determine the colour of your teeth using a shade guide. The teeth are then carefully smoothed and shaped to accommodate the sculptured porcelain layer. Temporaries are placed on the teeth while the veneers are being created in the lab. When the veneers fit perfectly and you are happy with the look, the veneers are bonded directly onto your teeth and polished to give you a natural, aesthetic smile.
Veneers won’t stain, making them a popular means of improving your smile. After careful planning, treatment may take two or more visits to complete and can last for up to 15 years.
Dental crowns are used to provide improved structure, function and appearance to damaged or decayed teeth. They are also used in the process of inserting dental implants for those who have lost one or more teeth – they are both a form of cosmetic dentistry and restoration dentistry.
Braces to Straighten Your Teeth
Straight teeth are a big part of cosmetic dentistry. At Titirangi Dental, we provide orthodontic treatment to correct crooked teeth. Self-ligating braces perform similarly to traditional metal braces and can address severe issues but they are available in clear or ceramic brackets to appear more discreet. They also eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties, making them more comfortable.
Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces that provides a nearly invisible method of correcting your teeth.
