Cosmetic dentistry deals with the aesthetic appearance of your smile. One of the most common requests from a cosmetic dentist is for whiter teeth. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, we offer a number of ways to lighten the colour of your teeth – all guaranteed to produce results that look as natural as they do beautiful.
Cosmetic dentistry consultations
The first step on your journey to lighter teeth is to join us at our Buckinghamshire dental practice for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and will assess the nature of any staining so that they can recommend the best treatment.
Your clinician will also check that you are in full dental health, because all cosmetic dentistry should only be carried out on a healthy mouth. If you need any additional treatment – for example, for tooth decay or gum disease – this will be factored in to your treatment plan.
Teeth whitening options at our Buckinghamshire clinic
Our teeth are easily stained in everyday life – drinks such as tea and coffee, habits such as smoking, even some medicines can cause tooth staining.
One of the most popular ways to get rid of these stains is teeth whitening, which uses a special dental bleaching gel to safely remove everyday stains, leaving your teeth several shades whiter. This can either be carried out here in our Buckinghamshire clinic in a single, hour-long session, or at home, which takes about two weeks.
If we find your teeth are permanently stained, we may recommend using porcelain veneers to improve their appearance. These very thin porcelain shells are fixed over the front surfaces of the front teeth and can correct minor alignment and spacing issues, as well as masking stained teeth.
Veneers require minimal preparation of the teeth, and usually take two appointments to fit.
Teeth whitening treatment is one of the quickest ways to give your smile a makeover. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, our skilled team of cosmetic dentists offer two types of whitening treatment – with one of the options taking just an hour. Whiter teeth in just 60 minutes may sound too good to be true, but we have many happy patients who will testify to its effectiveness. Read on to discover how you could join them. . .
Why we need teeth whitening treatment
There are many factors that cause our teeth to become stained. Food and drink, lifestyle choices such as smoking, some medicines and even some medical conditions can all cause staining of the teeth. A lot of people also find that as they get older, their teeth lose some of their natural brightness. When carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening treatment is a safe and effective way to get rid of stains and get that brightness back.
How treatment works
Whichever of the teeth whitening treatments available from our Buckinghamshire practice you choose, the principles are the same. Treatment involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to gently remove stains from your teeth, leaving them brighter and whiter. Depending on which option suits you best, this can take between two weeks and one hour – the choice is yours.
Home teeth whitening involves the use of custom-made whitening trays. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to ensure these fit perfectly. All you need to do is put a little whitening gel in the trays and wear them overnight for two weeks.
Power whitening takes place here in our Buckinghamshire practice. Your dentist applies the gel to your teeth and uses a special light to activate it. Hey presto, an hour later you have a brighter, whiter smile.
Cosmetic dentistry offers a number of solutions to people who are unhappy with the spacing of their teeth. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, our skilled cosmetic dentist Dr Makhani welcomes new patients for cosmetic dental consultations.
Patients with gappy smiles can choose from a range of cosmetic dentistry options at our Buckinghamshire dental practice. The ideal treatment in your case will depend on a number of factors, including the nature and amount of correction needed, and your personal preference.
Open gingival embrasures, also known as black triangles, are a common complaint in adult patients. These gaps and dark spaces between the teeth can be caused by gum recession, bone loss, and movement of the teeth, and can make the teeth look old. They are also prime breeding grounds for plaque bacteria because food particles can easily become trapped in these spaces.
At our Buckinghamshire practice we use the ClarkMatrix system to close these gaps with composite bonding material – the same material used for white fillings. This treatment uses clear forms that are filled with composite material closely matched to your natural tooth colour to close the gaps and improve your gum line.
Veneers are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. These thin pieces of porcelain are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their appearance, and can be used to close gaps. A minimally-invasive procedure, this typically involves two visits to the dental practice.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces designed to quickly improve the position of your front six to eight teeth. These braces comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, and have an average treatment time of just six months. We also provide an extra smile boost with teeth whitening – the best-known procedure in cosmetic dentistry – free of charge at the end of treatment.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments in the field of cosmetic dentistry, and it’s not difficult to see why. At Garden View Dental Care, Buckinghamshire, our skilled cosmetic dental team have helped scores of patients to boost their smile quickly and safely with the help of whitening treatment.
Ideal before a special occasion
When it’s carried out by a qualified dentist (or a hygienist on a clinician’s prescription) teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to boost your smile. It’s also very fast, which means it can be the perfect way to spoil yourself before a special occasion – a big family party, wedding, or important business meeting, for example.
At our Buckinghamshire dental practice, we offer two options for teeth whitening treatment: home whitening, and power whitening here in the practice.
Home whitening involves the use of custom-made teeth whitening trays and whitening gel. You will come into our Buckinghamshire clinic for a check-up and to be measured for your trays, and should put a little gel in them and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks – or as long as your dentist advises.
Power whitening takes place here at Garden View in Buckinghamshire. With this option, all you need do is sit back and relaxed whilst your dentist places protective barriers over your gums and lips, before applying the gel to your teeth. A lamp is used to activate the gel, and great results are seen in just one hour.
Whichever option you think suits you best, you will need a consultation at our Buckinghamshire clinic first. Teeth whitening should always be carried out on a healthy mouth – as with any cosmetic procedure. Otherwise, you run the risk of unwanted side effects such as sensitivity. If your dentist does find any health issues, they will treat these first.
Cosmetic dentistry was once thought to be only for A-list celebrities and the mega-rich. These days, however, more and more people are opting for cosmetic dental treatment.

Dr Al-Karim Makhani is highly experienced in providing cosmetic dentistry to a wide range of patients. Whether you require a single treatment such as teeth whitening or are in need of a full smile makeover, Dr Makhani and the friendly team at his Buckinghamshire dental practice can help.

He will also carefully examine your teeth, gums and surrounding structures before recommending the best course of treatment to achieve your smile goals.
Dr Makhani may recommend a single treatment or a combination from our cosmetic dentistry menu. Among the popular treatments are. . .

Many adults suffer from black triangles, known as open gingival embrasures. This is often due to bone loss and recession of the gum line, and sometimes due to movement in the teeth. Diastema closure uses composite material to close these gaps.
Teeth whitening is an excellent way to boost the appearance of your smile. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, our experienced cosmetic dental team are highly experienced in providing whitening treatment. We have two options available at our practice.
How teeth whitening works
Teeth whitening uses special bleaching gel to safely and gently remove everyday stains from the teeth. Our teeth are easily stained by food and drink such as coffee and red wine, by smoking, and by some medications and medicated mouthwashes. Even patients with good dental hygiene practices may find that their lifestyle is causing stains on their teeth.
If you are concerned about stained teeth and want to improve the appearance of your smile, you should call into our Buckinghamshire dental practice to find out about teeth whitening treatment options.
You should always consult a dentist before starting teeth whitening treatment. Products available from the internet or from beauty parlours are unlikely to be as rigorously tested as those used in a dental practice. They may at best be ineffective; at worst they can actually damage your teeth and gums.
The products we use at Garden View in Buckinghamshire are tested and safe. We offer two treatment options: power whitening here in the practice, and home whitening.
Home whitening involves the use of custom-made teeth whitening trays and whitening gel. The trays will be made to comfortably fit over your teeth. You place a small amount of the gel into the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.
Power teeth whitening is carried out here at our Buckinghamshire practice by a cosmetic dentist. They will shield your lips and gums and apply whitening gel to your teeth. A special lamp is used to activate the gel, and all you need to do is sit back and relax for an hour or so.
Cosmetic dentistry is an increasingly popular way to give yourself a makeover. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, our skilled cosmetic team offer a wide range of treatments – including some fast ways to improve the appearance of your smile.
One of the fastest ways to give your smile a natural-looking, long-lasting makeover is with porcelain veneers. Veneers are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. We have helped many patients at our Buckinghamshire dental practice to boost the appearance of their smiles with the help of veneers.
If you are interested in this treatment, you should come into Garden View in Buckinghamshire for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and assess whether this is the most appropriate treatment for you.
Veneers can be used to address a number of cosmetic concerns, including teeth that are slightly chipped or cracked, teeth that are permanently discoloured or stained, and slight issues with gaps between teeth or with tooth alignment. They are very thin shells of porcelain fitted over the front surfaces of your teeth with a strong dental adhesive. Because your teeth require minimal preparation, veneers are one of the fastest and easiest procedures in cosmetic dentistry.
A small amount of enamel is removed from your tooth to improve the bonding process, and impressions are taken of your teeth. Your veneers will be made to the exact same thickness as the amount of enamel removed and will be closely matched to the natural colour of your teeth, so the results will look entirely natural.
When your veneers are ready you will be called back to our Buckinghamshire practice for your dentist to attach them. They will check you are entirely happy with the appearance of your veneers before they are permanently attached, with the result being a beautiful, natural new smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. At Garden View Dental Care in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, our skilled cosmetic dentist Dr Makhani and his team have helped many patients to boost the appearance of their smiles by using whitening treatment.
What does teeth whitening involve?
Teeth whitening uses special dental bleaching products to gently remove everyday stains from the teeth. Our teeth are easily stained by foods and drink, by habits such as smoking and by certain medicines and medicated mouthwashes.
Whitening treatment is a proven, safe way to get rid of these stains and leave your teeth much brighter and whiter. It should only be carried out by a dentist or dental hygienist.
Can’t I get cheaper treatment on the internet?
If there’s one thing you should remember when exploring options for teeth whitening, it is that this treatment should only be undertaken by a qualified dental professional. While it is true that there are a plethora of “whitening” products available online, you have no way of knowing if these are quality products – or even if they are safe.
The products used at our Buckinghamshire practice have been extensively tested and have been proven to be safe to use. Products bought from the internet may not have been tested to such rigorous standards, and could actually damage your teeth and gums, leaving you in pain and in need of extensive restorative treatment.
What are my treatment options?
At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, we offer two options for teeth whitening treatment. You can have a single session of power whitening delivered by your dentist here at the practice, or can carry out treatment yourself at home.
Power whitening involves an hour-long session in the comfort of our Buckinghamshire practice, while home treatment will take about two weeks to complete.
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of the profession that deals with the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, and can involve anything from teeth whitening to full-mouth restorations using crowns, bridges or dental implants. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire we offer a huge selection of cosmetic dental procedures to suit all needs and budgets.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Here, we look at how the treatment works and what options are available to patients at our Buckinghamshire practice.
How does whitening treatment work?
Whitening treatment uses special bleaching gel to gently remove stains from the teeth. There are two options for whitening: it can be carried out here in the comfort of our Buckinghamshire practice, or can be done at home using custom-made teeth whitening trays.
Can’t I save money by buying whitening products online?
The key thing to remember about teeth whitening treatment is that it must, by law, only be carried out under the supervision of a fully-qualified dentist. While it’s true there are whitening products available from the internet and even from some beauty salons, these are likely to be of inferior quality.
In the best case scenario they simply won’t work, and you’ll have wasted your money. In the worst case scenario they can damage your teeth and gums, leaving you in pain and in need of extensive restorative work.
The products and techniques used at our Buckinghamshire practice are tried, tested and safe. Your dentist will check there are no problems such as tooth decay that need treating before whitening, and will monitor you throughout treatment to ensure everything is going to plan.
Think about other cosmetic dentistry treatments: you wouldn’t trust an unqualified practitioner to place a crown or attach your veneers, and teeth whitening treatment is exactly the same: only a qualified dental professional should deliver it.
If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to boost your smile before a special occasion, teeth whitening could be the perfect treatment for you. At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire we have successfully treated many patients who wanted whiter, brighter, stain-free teeth. It’s one of the fastest cosmetic dental procedures available.
Anyone considering teeth whitening treatment should ensure they only have the procedure carried out under the care of a qualified dentist. There are many products available on the internet and the highstreet that promise whiter teeth, but you should be cautious. Most of these products won’t work, meaning you will have wasted time and money. In the worst case scenario they can actually damage your teeth, gums and mouth. By law, teeth whitening must only be carried out by a dentist or a hygienist/hygiene therapist on a dentist’s prescription.
At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire the teeth whitening products we use have been extensively tried and tested, and are completely safe. The whitening gel used will gently remove stains from your teeth without damaging their structure.
Teeth are stained by the food and drink we consume, by habits such as smoking and by certain medications. Teeth whitening is a fast and reliable way to remove these stains. Here at our Buckinghamshire dental practice we offer two options for whitening treatment:
1 Power whitening
Power whitening is carried out here at our Buckinghamshire practice in one single session. Dr Makhani will place a protective barrier over your lips and gums and will apply teeth whitening gel to your teeth. A special light is used to activate the gel and all you need to do is sit back and relax for an hour while the gel gets to work. The result will be teeth several shades brighter – whiter teeth in just one hour really is possible!
2 Home teeth whitening
Home whitening also uses special whitening gel to lighten the colour of your teeth and remove stains, but is carried out in the comfort of your own home. Dr Makhani will take impressions of your mouth to create bespoke whitening trays. When these are ready you will be instructed on how to use them: you place a small amount of whitening gel in the trays and wear them overnight or for short periods during the day for approximately two weeks.
