Tooth whitening can be a practical method of lightening the colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces, so it is very conservative of tooth material and under the guidance of a dentist, very safe. It can result in a dramatic colour change; but may also be used to give a more youthful appearance to the teeth in a subtle way.
Single, dark or heavily stained teeth (possibly following root treatment), can also be whitened using the latest simple and safe whitening technology. It is possible to change the appearance of a tooth or teeth to restore or enhance a natural look and a great smile, sometimes in just a matter of hours.
Through a variety of the modern techniques, (together with appropriate orthodontic treatment, if required), we can help you to achieve a better, more natural and healthy-looking smile. This involves carefully planning treatments to enhance or adjust the shape of a patient’s teeth by means of veneers or crowns or white fillings or a combination of all of these, to achieve an improved appearance.
To see just what we have achieved for some of our patients, go to our Gallery to see real life pictures taken of our patients both before and after treatment by Dr Miller.
Porcelain Veneers are specially crafted pieces of porcelain that are shaped to fit over the surface of your existing teeth, (rather like false finger nails). These are often used to change the appearance of teeth either in colour or shape, or to repair cracked and damaged teeth or to fill in gaps.
White Fillings can be used instead of the more traditional Silver colour amalgam and blended to match the existing colour of the tooth being filled. White fillings should be almost invisible to the naked eye.
Worn, broken or older stained fillings can all be newly colour-matched to blend with the natural colour of your teeth.
"Dr. Miller treated me with patience, understanding and respect. He made me feel I was his only patient. I now have teeth I am proud of, can smile at people, do not feel embarrassed, am looking forward to a holiday where I can eat the same as everyone else, smile and have fun, without covering my mouth or worrying about other people seeing my teeth. I have my life back and am looking forward."
