Cosmetic Dentistry

NHS, Cosmetic & Private dental practice, Hartlepool, Durham, & Teesside


While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person's teeth, mouth and smile. In other words restorative, general and/or family dental practices address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective - or desired - treatments or services.

Cosmetic dentistry may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth.

Today, dental fillings may fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry, because you can select fillings made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the colour of your teeth, thus maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth and smile. Many people may choose to have their older fillings replaced with newer, tooth-coloured fillings to enhance their oral appearance.

"Just a few words to thank you and your team for their professionalism, dedication, care and enthusiasm during my recent cosmetic dental treatment at your surgery. I can now relax when I smile without the self conscious feeling that I must not show my teeth. My new found confidence and enhanced self esteem makes me smile at every opportunity. I have been complimented on my new teeth by everyone I come into contact with."

Paul Dees

"I attended your surgery after my front tooth was knocked out. I was very nervous and apprehensive. However, I found Miss Elliot very understanding. She was very patient and although the treatment was quite extensive my confidence increased as the treatment progressed. I am really pleased with my 'new' tooth."

H McCabe

"Just a little note to say thank you all for everything. You helped to make my recent dental work as painless and stress-free as possible, and I can now SMILE when someone points a camera at me, rather than run away! I have conquered my fear of coming to the dentist and my life is much better now I have the confidence to show my teeth rather than worry about them. It was definitely worth all of the worry and anguish - I look back ad wonder what all the fuss was about! I wish I had done it yearís ago. All of your staff are excellent and I a very grateful for all you have done."

Ali Mulrooney

"I am just writing to say thank you so much for allowing me to smile again. I only wish Iíd done it sooner! I listened to all of your advice and recommendations and knew you were right. I just needed a little more reassurance and thatís what you gave me. I never thought I would ever have straight teeth, but you made it happen. Very many thanks"
