Perfecting the Art and Science of Creating a Smile

HBDS Aesthetic

Hollywood smiles and reality makeovers are probably the first things that jump to mind at the mention of aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry. They certainly fit the description, but don't exactly provide the full picture.

At HBDS, we do more than give you a great smile. We merge art and science to optimally improve the appearance, function and health of your teeth, incorporating cosmetic dentistry as a complete solution in dental care.

Thanks to advancements in modern aesthetic dental care, you can have a beautiful smile more efficiently than ever before. It is essential to be aware that dental perfection requires a systematic approach that includes diagnosis, communication, treatment planning, execution and case maintenance.

Aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry involves creating balance and symmetry. It is about skillfully manipulating colour and contours to produce seamless harmony with the adjacent teeth, the gums, lips and face. It could involve procedures such as whitening, bonding, veneers, implants or orthodontics. Alternatively, it could be as simple as covering chips and worn enamel and replacing old mercury fillings with more natural-looking white ones.

Planning your new smile

The quality of your smile inspires confidence and trust that others have in you during social and professional interactions. An unfortunate smile can compromise your opportunities, without you even realising it. Creating a beautiful smile requires bespoke planning, taking into account your personality and lifestyle. At Hout Bay Dental Studio, we take a systematic approach to perfection with attention to fine detail.

Teeth whitening

Just as it is easy to be charmed by a dazzling smile, it is also natural to be repelled by a dull or dingy one. Yet, strangely enough, stained teeth are the most common cause of an unattractive smile. Tooth stains can result from food, drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, smoking or poor oral hygiene. The good news is that the discolouration can be dealt with simply and cost-effectively with our premier Zoom Whitening procedure or a custom-made take-home professional whitening kit.

Dental veneers

There's no reason to put up with a crooked smile when dental veneers can easily transform it into a bright, white set of beautifully aligned teeth. Veneers can enhance the appearance, strength and durability of a damaged tooth and are especially useful for repairing chipped, cracked or worn teeth.

Direct bonding

Bonding, or direct bonding, forms the basis of all minimally invasive dental treatments. It is mostly used as an inexpensive and effective restoration treatment for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discoloured or badly aligned.

Snip and trim: Gum contouring

When we feel unhappy about our smile, we usually assume it’s because our teeth are chipped or crooked or stained. However, sometimes it's not our teeth that are the problem.
