Cosmetic (or aesthetic) dentistry aims to improve the appearance of your teeth, while not necessarily improving their function. However, at Laurel Dental practice we aim for all our treatments to result in beautiful teeth, whether cosmetic or functional.

We understand the confidence boost a picture-perfect smile can have on your life and so we offer a full smile redesign service to correct both the position and shade of your teeth to your specification. Please get in touch to arrange your consultation and see what we can do for you!

Tooth Whitening

After an initial consultation to check your oral health, we offer two whitening services:

  • In chair whitening is a one-visit service using bleach and light which transforms your smile in just two hours.
  • For home whitening we take bespoke impressions of your teeth to make whitening trays. Once ready, you take the trays and whitening bleach home to treat yourself around your own schedule.

Invisalign uses a system of nearly invisible, comfortable and removable aligners to move your teeth to create your desired smile.

At Laurel Dental Practice we ask you to come in for an initial consultation where we check your oral health to assess your suitability for treatment. Once confirmed we take photos, x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create your individual treatment plan.

You will receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 2 weeks. You will meet with your dentist every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress.

Conventional orthodontics involves the use of braces to improve the appearance and position of crooked, protruding and overcrowded teeth. While the cosmetic results of orthodontics are highly desirable, these procedures can also improve the biting functionality of the teeth and improve your oral hygiene by making cleaning easier.

At Laurel Dental Practice we offer both orthopaedic and orthodontic procedures. Orthopaedic procedures involve correcting the upper and lower teeth to the correct size and shape in relation to your jaw and head. Orthodontic procedures involve correcting the position of your teeth using bracket and wire braces. We offer orthodontics in children from about 12 years old with good oral hygiene. Treatment takes about 18-24 months and you will be required to wear a retainer for several years afterwards to keep your teeth fixed in their new position.

Orthodontics are a highly personalised treatment option and if you are interested, we suggest you come in and see us for an initial consultation where we would be delighted to run through your options. Unlike the NHS we have no long waiting lists and cater for individuals over 18 years old. We also welcome individuals who are not accepted for NHS treatment due to a lower grade treatment need.
