Cosmetic dentistry is a form of professional dental and oral care that focuses on improving your teeth’ look, healthiness or appearance.

One of the most popular forms of Cosmetic Dentistry in Dorking is Teeth Whitening. This process can improve the overall look of your smile and improve your confidence. Everyone’s teeth can become yellow and stained over time so Teeth Whitening is a method of lighting the colour of your teeth to get rid of the yellow look. It is the process of changing the colour of the tooth’s enamel to reverse your teeth’ discolouration.
There are many reasons why your teeth can discolour. Many lifestyle habits such as the type of foods you eat, drinking a lot of tea, coffee, wine and even starchy foods. Tobacco can also have a significant impact on the colour of your teeth.
Here at Dorking Smiles, we offer two types of Teeth Whitening procedures. The first is called Boutique Whitening. This method is where we take impressions of your teeth and send them to the laboratory, where custom trays will be made specifically for you. You will then be given some chemicals to place in them and will need to wear them overnight. The other option we offer here at Dorking Smiles is a procedure called Airflow Cleaning. This method is completed by a jet of compressed air, water, and bicarbonate particles, polishing the teeth gently and wiping away any yellow stains, leaving behind a bright, white smile! This procedure costs £75.
One option for creating a new look for your teeth is Porcelain Veneers. Veneers are a thin tooth-coloured shell custom-made to bond to the front surface of your existing teeth. This can help protect the tooth’s surface and enamel from damage and give your teeth a cleaner new look. They are used to improve your teeth’ colour, tighten spaces within your mouth, and enhance the shape of your teeth.
Another word for Veneers is a Dental Facelift. The primary purpose is to enhance the appearance of your teeth by creating a clean white look. Another use for them is to help close the gaps in your teeth and also to help to ensure that you don’t have a ‘gummy smile’.
To receive the best results from Porcelain Veneers, we advise that your teeth are relatively intact and minimally restored or filled. Veneers are sturdy and can resist most forces with the proper care and diet.
For Cosmetic Dentistry in Dorking, Invisalign is another very popular treatment. We will use clear plastic trays or aligners to help to correct and straighten your teeth. This is a much more effective way compared to the traditional metal wired braces, as they are clear, and your teeth can become straight in a much more realistic time scale. As well as this, you will be able to see the physical process and the straightening of your smile quite early on, depending on how complex your case is.
We will have a chat with you before you start your treatment to ensure that it is a suitable method for you. We have a fantastic team of Invisalign experts who will inform you of the duration of your case and the costs involved. To fully complete the Invisalign procedure can take around six months, depending on the severity of your case.
A cavity is formed if you don’t brush your teeth regularly or eat a lot of sugary foods. There are many filling options, but White Fillings are the best way to resolve a cavity. If you already have Amalgam or Silver Fillings or even old, worn-out fillings, we can easily replace them with a white filling. A white filling creates a more natural and unnoticeable result.
A white filling fills the cavity and are unnoticeable, and can even make your teeth appear whiter and brighter. They prevent further decay of the surrounding tooth structure as the joins are sealed and restorations bonded to the tooth. We have various fillings to choose from if you prefer something different, but a white filling will give the best result.
Gum Line Correction
Gum Line Correction is an innovative procedure that helps you achieve the smile of your dreams. It is suited to those who feel they have a ‘gummy smile’ and helps to improve the health of your gum tissue. Another treatment we offer is something called ‘Gum Lifts’, which is a process that can be used in conjunction with Veneers and Crowns.
All-On-4 is a fixed bridge attached to the Dental Implant that takes around six months with additional recovery time. A nickname for this procedure is ‘Same Day, Same Teeth’. We will extract any remaining teeth you have on the day of surgery, where 4-6 Implants will be placed on the upper arch and lower. This is an important and long term procedure, so before you agree to this, our dental nurses will discuss all alternative treatment options with you to ensure this is the right treatment method to take.
Here at Dorking Smiles, the comfort of our patients is our top priority. This treatment is very in-depth, so if you are a nervous patient, we can arrange for you to have sedation on the day of surgery to help you feel more relaxed and at ease. We will place the implants on your teeth, and an Implant-retained Bridge will also be fitted. Aftercare is one of the most critical steps in your treatment, so our dentists will provide you with complete care and advice.
Here at Dorking Smiles, we can provide a wide range of cosmetic procedures for your smiles. Please visit or contact us here at Dorking Smiles. We’re here to help you and ensure you receive the best care possible.
