COSMETIC TREATMENTS

Tooth coloured fillings

DENTAL CARE CENTRE LOWER HUTT

The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance. The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.



Veneers

DENTAL CARE CENTRE LOWER HUTT

Veneers are a thin facing that is sealed to the front of your teeth to improve aesthetics. These are tailor made specifically for you, either out of porcelain or composite custom crafted. Veneers are a popular treatment option for patients with chipped or discolored teeth, or to close a gap between teeth. In the majority of cases veneers are only applied to the teeth which become visible upon smiling.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient's smile.



Teeth Whitening

It's safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

DENTAL CARE CENTRE LOWER HUTT

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We'll want to take "after" photos at your next appointment.
