Top Cosmetic Dentistry Trends
If your smile has been affecting your confidence for too long, now could be the perfect time to make a change. With further advancements in cosmetic dentistry, dentists and leading specialists are now able to offer a versatile range of innovative techniques to improve your smile and preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible.

To help you better understand the leading cosmetic dentistry trends that could change your smile, we’ve prepared this short article that details how these procedures work, and what they can do for you.
This pioneering treatment is used to straighten the teeth, alter gap teeth, as well as to treat underbite, overbite and crossbite. Unlike traditional orthodontics, Invisalign is comprised of clear plastic orthodontic aligners that fit the teeth – a life-enhancing option for those that want to alter their smile discreetly. Invisalign is also removable, allowing for patients to brush, floss and eat comfortably throughout the treatment.
This procedure involves posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone to replace the natural root, followed by insertion of artificial replacement teeth. The bone then heals firmly around the implant, providing support for the new teeth. An innovative alternative to traditional dentures or bridgework, custom-made dental implants are extremely durable and can replace completely broken or damaged tooth structure.
Gum contouring (also known as gingivectomy) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to reshape the tissue and modify the bone of the gumline. This dental treatment reduces the appearance of a ‘gummy smile’, and alters the appearance of irregular gum lines, crooked smiles, and natural variation in tooth size. Using advanced dental lasers, the process removes layers of tissue that surround the teeth to reshape the gumline into a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
If you’re looking for a ‘Hollywood smile’, veneers may be the solution for you. Made from thin shells of composite resin or dental porcelain, they are adhered to the front of the teeth. Utilising technologies such as 3D scanning and CAD/CAM (computer aided drawing systems), the veneers are fitted to the underlying tooth to provide patients with an almost instant smile makeover. Treat chipped, discoloured, misshapen and even somewhat misaligned teeth with this solution.
Complete smile makeovers
A complete smile makeover is a leading trend in the cosmetic dentistry space, offering several dental solutions that promise to completely enhance your smile as well as improving the day-to-day functionality of your teeth. This may involve restoring your smile by replacing missing teeth with dental implants, bridges or dentures or applying veneers, crowns or composite bonding to your teeth to create a symmetrical appearance. In the case of crooked teeth, choose between the innovative Invisalign braces or conventional orthodontics, and brighten your smile with tooth whitening solution that removes unsightly discolouration.
