At Albion Dental we offer much more than just conventional dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular over recent years and there is an increasing demand for procedures that not only really improve the appearance of your teeth, but also boosts your self-confidence and gives you a beautiful smile.

Cosmetic dentistry differs to conventional dentistry as it is mainly about improving the look - or aesthetics - of your teeth rather than looking just at the health of them. There’s a range of procedures available that can whiten, straighten or even reshape teeth and improve the look of your gums. These include:


Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain custom-made to perfectly fit over the front your teeth to dramatically improve their position, size, colour and shape to give you a truly dazzling smile. Veneers make your teeth much whiter and brighter and are an excellent way of improving the appearance of teeth that have become badly discoloured, uneven or cracked. They can also be used to close small gaps if any of your teeth are slightly out of position.


The majority of people today no longer want to have old-fashioned amalgam (silver) fillings if their teeth become damaged by decay or injury. Luckily these days there is a wide range of modern filling materials available and we can discuss the different types with you and recommend the one that suits you best.

Composite, or ‘white’ fillings, are the modern and much more attractive alternative to amalgam fillings. They are made from natural tooth-coloured materials that are blended to match your existing natural tooth colour as closely as possible. In some cases these composite materials can be used to cover unsightly marks on teeth, in a similar way to veneers.


If you’re unhappy with your smile, but not entirely sure which treatments would make the most difference, come in for a Smile Design consultation. This is where we look at the areas you’d like to improve, for example fillings gaps, straightening teeth and/or whitening, and create a bespoke plan to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Depending on your requirements, this may involve one or more procedures, working within your budget and towards your aesthetic goal.
