6. What is Smile Makeover?

7. Why is Tooth Whitening so popular?
Tooth whitening is a fast, easy, effective, safe, and long lasting solution to remove the stains and discolouration from your teeth.

8. Will I benefit from Composite & Porcelain Veneers?
If you have a damaged tooth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, and gaps that you want to fill in, then Composite or Porcelain Veneers may be an option for you.

9. I have a number of silver fillings, what can I have done to improve this?
The silver filling material used in your teeth is amalgam. It has been used as a filling material for over a hundred years and it's still one of the strongest materials available. However, it's about as unattractive a filling material as you can get. There are a number of other tooth-colour restorative materials currently available that can be used to replace old amalgams.

10. Why do teeth seem to darken when people age?
Teeth may seem to darken as plaque can build up faster and in larger amounts as we age. Staining from coffee, tea, soft drinks, certain medications and smoking can also occur. Dark teeth can be lightened with whitening procedures, surface staining on teeth due to tea, coffee and smoking etc can be removed by the dental hygienist.
