Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. Most think of tooth whitening or veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more.

A skilled, experienced cosmetic dentist can help to improve your appearance, your smile, even your self­ esteem, and confidence. Today, cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve to where cosmetic dentists can address functional as well as cosmetic patient concerns.

“Many different ways of improving your smile are now possible. We are always happy to discuss the most suitable and appropriate Cosmetic Dental treatment to suit your needs.” Dr Andy Stafford & Dr Darren Cannell

We believe that aesthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient, and do no harm. Our dentists aim to provide minimally invasive treatments, when and where appropriate, to ensure they are consistent with the long­ term health and needs of the patient. Finally, we encourage the use of innovation in technology and materials to deliver dentistry that is predictable and long-lasting.

Cosmetic dentistry has evolved from simply replacing and restoring damaged teeth to covering a wide scope of aesthetic procedures. Today’s cosmetic dentistry includes tooth whitening, bonding, tooth­-coloured restorations and fillings, porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants, and more. You may be surprised by how dentistry has evolved and what an experienced cosmetic dentist can do.

Smiles Are Valuable According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey, Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset and 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.

Danielle Bennett

100% Recommend Dr Matt Simms at The Cosmetic Dental Clinic. The transformation to my smile is incredible. Invisalign brace and composite bonding. 💫⭐️💫

Jessica B

Just finished my treatment with Dr Nigel Parkash and dental nurse Lauren, extremely happy with my composite bonding. I couldn’t recommend Nigel enough for all your cosmetic dentistry needs, a true artist and perfectionist! Thank you Cosmetic Dental Clinic Durham.

Carly Ellis

Can’t fault any part of the service and care I received from the Cosmetic Dental Clinic. After spending years being embarrassed about my teeth, I can’t believe how they look now. Can honestly say it has changed my life and how I feel. My only regret is that I didn’t get it done sooner!

Clare Irwin

Nigel and the team were fantastic. I’ve just finished my Invisalign treatment and I couldn’t believe the difference. They really are a talented bunch. Thank you so much.

Angela Lusk 

I would highly recommend Nigel and the team at Durham. I had old veneers from 30 years ago and I always felt very conscious of my horrible teeth and didn’t like smiling. Now I have lovely new veneers and I love them. Thank you so much.

Holly Mason

I couldn’t reccomend the cosmetic dental clinic Durham enough , especially Nigel. I visited the clinic back in October, had my consultation with Nigel. told him what i didn’t like about my teeth and he ran through all the options with me, not feeling pressured at all, he was so knowledgeable and really took his time to go through it all with me and answer all the questions i had.
