Our facially guided aesthetic treatment plans ensure the best possible outcome for you. We take a systematic Digital Smile Design and holistic oro facial approach to create the ideal smile. Working closely with you at each step in the process, you become the co-author or your smile – whether for minimal cosmetic dentistry like a few veneers, or a full mouth rehabilitation.
There’s a reason you see veneers so often on makeover shows – they look good, plus results can be achieved quickly.
Veneers give you a beautifully symmetrical, a natural look, in the shade of white that is ideal for you. At Thinc Clinic, veneers are custom made in a few appointments – which means you leave with an instant new smile!All of our veneer designs are facially driven through Digital Smile Design, allowing you to test drive your smile before the final teeth are put in.
In general, a dental veneer can be done completely non-invasively just by bonding the ceramic onto the existing tooth (also called prep-less veneers, as there is no preparation or removal of the existing enamel). Veneers can either be performed in a single appointment using CADCAM technology, or completed in two to three appointments using conventional techniques. This will result in an improvement in the overall aesthetics and enamel texture and tone.
Setting us apart, Thinc Clinic veneers are designed by algorithms of natural teeth designs, ensuring the most natural smile using minimally invasive techniques.
The single most aging aspect of your smile is the colour of your teeth. Dull, yellow or stained teeth give the appearance of a more advanced age. While tooth colour can be improved to some extent by a regular oral hygiene appointments, if you have stains and discoloration - for optimal results, we suggest teeth whitening.
With whitening you can expect an improvement of three to four shades, depending on the tooth condition, the treatment method you choose and your result preference. It’s important to remember that teeth with a thinner enamel network respond less favourably to teeth whitening. So before starting a teeth whitening procedure, let us advise you if you are an ideal candidate.
Our in-chair teeth whitening is relatively non-invasive and can be performed within an hour or two – and in a single appointment, with instant results. We also offer convenient home whitening kits which offer amazing results, with limited sensitivity.
Do you want to look years younger within a single treatment plan? Then we highly recommend the Thinc Dental Facelift – a combination of enamel reconstruction and medical aesthetics such as botox and fillers.
When it comes to ageing, it’s not just wrinkles that make us appear older - the size, shape and colour of our teeth have an enormous part to play in how old we look.
As you age, teeth naturally darken, tooth structures get worn down and shortened showing less tooth when you smile. In addition, the distance from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin decreases as the shorter teeth allow your jaw to close a little more. With your jaw allowed to close in, it also rotates a little more forward in some cases – which will ultimately alter your overall facial symmetry and proportions.
The masseter muscle (the muscle that clenches on the side of your face) then also shortens and becomes more powerful. This creates a more bulgy, square appearance around the angle of the lower jaw and side of the face, resulting in an aged appearance, as opposed to a more tapered youthful look.
With our dental aging treatment, we start with an initial assessment (link to FAQ first assessment) to get a digital case of your face and dental profile to determine whether we treat worn enamel and ageing teeth with veneers or full crowns, where whitening, botox and fillers are needed.
Because Thinc Clinic is able to make veneers and crowns on site while you wait, you can leave the practice looking significantly younger in just one or two appointments.
It’s important to remember that each case is unique, and if giving your teeth a makeover is not enough on its own, we may recommend additional procedures to get the result you want.
A gummy smile due to having excess gum tissue covering the teeth, causes teeth to appear short. The extra gum tissue makes less enamel is visible, showing more gum in your smile than teeth.
A laser gum procedure usually takes a matter of minutes — depending on how many teeth are involved — which makes a gummy smile treatment one of the “fastest” ways to makeover your smile!
With our laser technology, we are able to remove excess gum tissue, reshaping your gums to create a natural and aesthetically pleasing gingival (gum) contour. Gum correction exposes more of your beautiful tooth enamel, giving you a fuller, whiter smile. Non-invasive dental lasers require little to no local aesthetic, with minimal bleeding. This technique also reduces your recovery time and post-procedure discomfort.
Darkening of the gums may be cause by genetics, certain medications, gum disease or may have become discoloured with past infection. Once we’ve ruled out any active disease and ensure that your gums are healthy, we’re ready to start your brighten your smile!
Laser gum lightening targets areas of the gum which are comparatively darker than the surrounding gingival tissue. Our laser treatment give your gums a more consistent colour, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your smile.
The treatment can be completed quickly with minimal numbing delivering precise lightening of problem areas. After treatment and a period of swift healing, you can smile with confidence knowing your gums are even-toned and appear healthy.
