Cosmetic dentistry is suited to any number of people hoping to improve the appearance of their teeth.

Modern cosmetic dentistry gives you the chance to smile with confidence, so find out more about cosmetic dentistry and what it could do for you today.
What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry involves dental procedures with the aim of improving the overall aesthetics of your smile.

A beautiful smile can have a positive impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem so choose the cosmetic dentistry suited to your desires with us.

Cosmetic dentistry for your unique smile

At our Farnworth practice we aim to offer the highest quality in Private Dental Care. With a deep understanding of the requirements of patients, our first-rate dental facilities ensure

Air Flow Therapy
Air Flow Therapy is a hygiene cleaning treatment that uses a mixture of air, jet water and sodium bicarbonate to polish and clean your teeth. The treatment is not a chemical treatment and therefore, there will be no risk to the patients for any irritation or chemical burns. Air Flow Therapy is an advanced version of a scaling and polish treatment, but the patient will walk away the same day with amazing, clean results. Air Flow Therapy appointments generally last between 30 and 45 minutes. This treatment can be carried out by the Dentist or via Direct Access by the Hygienist/Therapist. For more information on Air Flow Therapy please visit the Hygiene Services page

Teeth Whitening
We aim to offer you a full range of teeth whitening treatments, tailored to meet your individual requirements. From home teeth whitening to Air flow Therapy we have the tooth whitening treatment that will suit you and your pocket. For our full range of teeth whitening on offer go to the teeth whitening page.

Cosmetic Dentures
If you have lost either all or some of your teeth and need effective replacement with either full or partial dentures, we can provide you with superior quality dentures that look as natural as possible. There is never any compromise; accurate measurements are taken to ensure a superior fit and level of comfort. For more information on cosmetic dentures check out the Cosmetic Dentures page.

Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment (Fast Braces)
Cosmetic orthodontic treatment will straighten your teeth or move them into a better position. This can not only improve the appearance or your teeth but also the way your teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean. For more information on the range of cosmetic orthodontic treatments we have to offer in Bradford please visit the Fast Braces page.

A crown is a restoration that fits over the remaining part of you tooth making it resilient and giving it the look of a real tooth. Crowns can be used to restore teeth that have been broken or that have been weakened by decay. For more information about private dental crowns visit the Crowns page.

Bridges are ideal for people who only have one or two teeth missing and don’t want a denture. There a number of options available from all-ceramic or all-porcelain to metal, porcelain fused to metal bridges and resin bonded. For more information about private dental bridges visit the Bridges page.

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. For more information about private dental veneers visit the Veneers page.

White Fillings
A composite filling (white filling) is a tooth-coloured mixture used to restore decayed or broken teeth. By using enamel and dentin bonding techniques, white fillings restore your teeth. White fillings are used as an alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings, which are not as aesthetically pleasing. For more information about private white fillings visit the White Fillings page.

Facial Aesthetics
Non-surgical facial aesthetics is a relatively new series of treatments for refreshing and enhancing your facial appearance, either by injecting dermal fillers or immobilising facial muscles. For more information on our range of facial aesthetics visit our Facial Aesthetics page.
