Remove dental imperfections such as stained, yellowed, and uneven teeth with our high-class cosmetic dentistry procedures that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a bleaching procedure that can lighten existing tooth colour so teeth become whiter.
Teeth whitening must be done under the supervision of dentists in the clinic or with the help of home kits that are authorised to prescribe to patients.
At Complete Dental, we use Zoom! teeth whitening to give you a whiter, brighter smile in a one-hour chair-side procedure, but if you prefer to whiten your teeth at your convenience, in the comfort of your home, we give home kits that can whiten your teeth over a two-week period.
Get the smile of your dreams with dental veneers
Dental veneers are coverings that hide the surface imperfections of your teeth. They can be made of porcelain or composite resin.
Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like coverings that are custom-created for each patient so they are an exact fit and create the best smile.
They are fixed onto your tooth’s enamel with the help of a dental bond, covering any surface imperfection and creating a new shape for teeth that improves their appearance.
These veneers are a long-lasting solution, and because they require modification of the teeth, they are replaceable but not removable.
Composite resin is a translucent restorative material used in dental treatments. It is a strong, non-abrasive, translucent material that is applied in very thin layers upon dental enamel to improve your teeth’s appearance.
These veneers do not modify the tooth structure and are removable; nevertheless, they are not as long-lasting in comparison to porcelain veneers.
Advantages of dental veneers
The most obvious advantage of getting dental veneers is the improvement of your smile. They hide all imperfections and help create a set of even teeth that look beautiful when smiling or talking.
Since veneers are made of tooth-coloured translucent material, they have a sheen to them like natural teeth do, which makes it difficult to distinguish between the two.
Whether you opt for porcelain veneers or resin ones, they are low maintenance and only need care when biting into hard foods like nuts or apples.
Caring for dental veneers
Tooth veneers are easy to care for and require little attention apart from brushing twice daily with a proper technique and flossing once a day. Rinsing with mouthwash can freshen your breath and prevent bacteria from building up along the gum line.
Dental implants vs dental veneers
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing or damaged teeth, while tooth veneers are a long-term cosmetic treatment to improve the aesthetics of a smile. Porcelain veneers can last up to fifteen years, while composite veneers need to be replaced or refreshed more frequently.
Getting dental implants does not limit any food consumption, while people who get veneers are advised to avoid hard foods like candy and nuts to reduce the risk of dislodging the veneers.
Both veneers and implants are custom-created to fit your mouth precisely.
While implants require surgery to place the post into the jawbone, porcelain veneers require minimal modification before they are fitted, and composite veneers require no modification at all.
Both treatments are effective and gaining popularity in creating smiles that are white, even, and gap-free.
Do I need cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the best treatment to modify the appearance of your smile. If you have teeth that are yellow, stained or mottled or generally discoloured, or you have teeth that are unevenly shaped, you are the perfect candidate for cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening or veneers.

Why is dental care important?
High-quality dental care helps keep your mouth clean and healthy, preventing dental problems like gum disease and tooth decay. A clean mouth helps maintain your general health by keeping bacteria away from your digestive and respiratory systems. When you visit a dentist regularly, he can monitor any change in your mouth, which could be a symptom of other health issues.

How does oral health affect general health?
Dental health is a key indicator of general health. Your mouth is directly connected to your respiratory and digestive tracts, and if it is not cleaned properly, the bacteria in your mouth may invade them and cause health issues. Also, bacteria allowed to grow unchecked can cause oral problems such as gum disease and affect your jawbone.
