Soft tissue gum sculpting is a simple procedure that is done under local anaesthetic which numbs the area to give a pain-free experience. One of our clinicians will remove a small amount of excess gum tissue. Although minimal amounts need to be taken for this procedure, often the results are significant – leaving the teeth looking longer, evening out the smile, and reducing the amount on gum on show to give a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Tooth contouring involves reshaping the edges and outside surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. It can often disguise crowding to make a smile appear straighter, without the need for extensive treatment. It can also make the tips of the teeth look more level and better shapes. The concept is based on changing the reflective and deflective areas on teeth, similar to using highlights and shadow in make-up. We contour teeth within the first layer, which is the enamel. Since this layer stays intact, the risks are minimal, as the tooth retains its original strength. Contouring is permanent and there is no upkeep involved. It also does not prevent you from having other forms of treatment in the future. In cases where teeth are already well proportioned, the reshaping is ideal to shorten the tooth when the gum has been sculpted to retain the proportions.
Phillips Zoom home whitening system is the preferred system we use to whiten teeth. We have found that it produces longer-lasting results in comparison to the in-chair whitening. It is manufactured in the USA and is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile. Using the highest quality maximum strength gel that can legally and safely be administered by a dentist, you can be assured of fantastic results and a brighter, whiter smile. Custom-fitting whitening trays will be made for you, and you have the option of a night whitening gel or a one-hour day whitening gel to apply to these trays. The whitening process takes 2 weeks in total to get the maximum effect.
Maintenance is required to maintain the whiteness achieved, and we recommend using the gel once every 2-3 months to do this.
