If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment. A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
Before and After Veneers Treatment
Dental decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack, producing a cavity (hole).
If the decay is not too serious, our cosmetic dentist will remove it all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling.
Our dentists can safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings.
Gum Contouring & Teeth Reshaping
If you have an uneven gum line or too much of your gums show when you smile, this is often described as a ‘gummy smile’. It can affect the way you smile naturally, or even stop you from smiling at all. The cosmetic treatment of gum sculpting or reshaping at Parrock Dental involves contouring the gums to remove any excess gum.
Gum contouring pain is minimal due to the use of lasers for the procedure. Minor cases can take less than a minute to complete, and involves healing time of a few hours. For more severe cases there is the option of a surgical lift of the gums, and this can take a few minutes to complete, but involves a longer healing time of a few months. With either treatment, the gum contouring risks and side effects are very low. Even minor gum sculpting can transform a gummy smile into a smile you have always wanted.
In order to access the health of the gums, and know how much excess gum is showing, we advise a consultation with our dentist to find out which treatment is the most suitable.
Some other cosmetic treatments that work well alongside gum sculpting are teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. Whitening works well as sometimes with a gum lift you may notice a difference in the tooth shade from where the tooth was hidden under the gum. And dental veneers work well as they help to keep the lift of the gum over a longer period, without veneers the gum will just grow back over time.
THE ADVANTAGES OF GUM RESHAPING OR GUM LIFT
- The results are immediate
- Gum reshaping or lift can make the size of the teeth look longer
- It improves the smile due to the reduced amount of gum showing
- Lasers are hygienic, and it can sterilise the gums from any bacteria
- Healing time for minor cases can be a few hours
- The procedure is safe with no side effects (depending on gum health)
What is teeth contouring and teeth reshaping?
Discoloured teeth, gappy smiles, chipped, fractured, or odd shaped teeth can all be fixed with cosmetic dental treatments, such as tooth contouring, or tooth bonding at Parrock Dental. Teeth contouring after braces treatment is also very popular as orthodontic methods focus on teeth straightening only and not chipped or broken teeth. These types of tooth issues can be quick to correct, and the cost of teeth contouring is relatively inexpensive in Kent. A beautiful smile can really boost your confidence and give you a new look.
Cosmetic contouring involves minor alterations or shaving of the teeth to smooth away rough edges or uneven teeth. Cosmetic bonding is great for gaps or chipped teeth. The procedure involves the surface of the tooth being prepared, roughened, and bonded with composite material that is the same colour as your natural teeth. The final step is polishing to give its natural tooth shine.
Both treatments aim to create very natural looking restorations at an affordable cost. They can be done in one visit, which makes it a very popular treatment, but they do require care. Tooth bonding can chip or stain more easily, giving them a limited aesthetic life. Cosmetic bonding and cosmetic contouring are great short term fixes for some teeth issues, however long term solutions include porcelain veneers; they can be longer lasting and stain resistant.

“I came to see Rik as I was really unhappy with my smile, I was missing teeth and also had broken teeth which was really affecting my chewing and confidence. I had dental implant treatment and would really recommend
“ The work I’ve had done has literally changed my life. I used to be very nervous but I love coming here. It was very comfortable and easy treatment coming from someone like me who was a phobic. Thank- you Rik and the team at Parrock Dental ”
I came to see Rik to have dental implants, I also needed a bone graft procedure all of which I was very nervous about. Rik was very sincere. I had a bone graft, dental implants and veneers. I am 100% happy with the result and would sincerely recommend Rik to everyone!
“I came here as my son recommended Parrock Dental, and my teeth were badly worn at the front and I needed dental implants at the rear to replace missing teeth. Overall I’ve been very please, it’s given me a lot more confidence with my smile, and chewing is now really good.”
