Cosmetic Restorations

Cosmetic Restorations

Cosmetic Restorations include minor treatments that may improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Cosmetic Restorations are usually a fairly inexpensive way of improving minor defaults or aspects of your smile that you are not entirely happy with. The list below explains some of the treatments we have to offer:

Chipped / Worn teeth

Teeth that are chipped or worn can be repaired. The tooth can be built up with a tooth coloured filling material to match the shade of your teeth. Any chips or signs of wear will disappear.


Tooth coloured materials are now used routinely for filling teeth, in preference to the older and more commonly used silver metal filling material. The use of these composite materials which we can reliably bond to the tooth means that we can provide a very hard wearing and highly attractive final result.

Unsightly metal fillings can be replaced by natural-coloured fillings to improve the look of your smile and allow you to laugh with confidence. Dental composite fillings can be used for filling new cavities, replacing metal or amalgam fillings, repairing chipped teeth and also can help to remove gaps between teeth.

Tooth re-shape enhancement

Teeth may sometimes be pegged shaped or narrow – if this is the case they can be built up to enhance the shape of the tooth using the same principle as repairing a chip; thus making your teeth more aesthetically pleasing.

Gap closure

Gaps in between your teeth can be closed up by bonding filling material onto each tooth. This is usually completed on gaps in between the two front teeth, which is the most common place for people to be unhappy about a gap in their teeth.


A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, very much like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural colour composite material is used instead of porcelain.
Veneers can improve the colours, shape, position and fix any gaps in your teeth. Click here to find out more about Veneers.
