At the Cosmetic & Dental Emporium we specialise in the provision of aesthetic dental care. Aesthetic dentistry is defined as dental work done to improve cosmetic dental appearance, without there being a medical need for the procedure. It should be noted however, that the effects of psychological wellbeing due to dental insecurity may be great and aesthetic work should not be considered as merely vanity.
Common complaints that may require aesthetic work include:
Spaces between the teeth
Broken or chipped teeth
Unsightly or washed out fillings
Stained or discoloured teeth
Misshapen or crooked teeth
Procedures addressing these, falling under the spectrum of aesthetic dentistry, include:
The process of lightening the teeth from stained and/or yellow to white.
The removal or application of enamel to acquire a more satisfactory tooth shape, size or position.
A very thin laminate that is placed over a tooth to give it enhanced shape, size or colour.
A metal anchor that screws into the jaw bone to provide a stable site for mounting of a false tooth, known as the crown.
A false tooth, that is mounted onto a dental implant.
A row of false teeth, secured between two implanted crowns.
Reshaping of the gum line to a produce more aesthetically appealing and symmetrical smile.
What do I need?
Deciding which procedures are correct for you is a personal process and should be done with the assistance of your CDE dentist. This is the process of creating your personalised treatment plan. This procedure typically happens during your first consultation and may include an X-Ray.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Aesthetic dentistry pricing is highly variable depending on what procedure is needed and how severe the specific situation is. After your initial consult you will receive a personalised treatment plan that will include an accurate quotation of the work required.
As we understand that many procedures are costly, the CDE provides procedure financing which can be repaid in monthly installments, regardless of medical aid.
The following may be used to give you an idea of what various procedures cost. Should you wish to use our finance options the finance calculator gives you a rough indication of the monthly installment.
