Dr Richard and his staff are highly skilled in all forms of Cosmetic as well as General Dentistry. Having worked in one of the top Cosmetic Dentistry practices in the Harley Street region of London where he was mentored and trained by a world-renowned Cosmetic Dentist, he has placed in excess of 1000 veneers and 500 implants - all with excellent results.
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved over the years to become an integral part of dentistry as a whole. This is because we would all prefer to look and feel younger and more confident when we smile. This is particularly important if you are having a job interview, or interested in finding that "perfect" life partner, for example.
The thing people notice first when meeting you for the first time is your eyes, nose and mouth-in particular your smile. Having the confidence to carry the perfect smile makes all the difference.
At Silver Oaks Dental Clinic we are passionate about creating perfect smiles because we have seen how it changes peoples lives.
Because Cosmetic Dentistry is generally an elective treatment option it is very important to get it right the first time. There are so many ways in which you can improve your smile. Not every option is the correct one for you. Make sure that you are part of the treatment planning - that your needs are met. It is important that the end result can be visualised before the work is carried out. It is also very important that minimally invasive dentistry is practiced - this means that only the absolute minimum amount of tooth structure is used to prepare the veneers or crowns.
Silver Oaks Dental Clinic is committed to minimally invasive dentistry. We believe that longevity and strength is as important as aesthetics. We only use the very best e.max ceramics in all our cosmetic work and do not use any metal in our veneers and crowns. Click Here to learn more about e.max ceramics
We are one of the very few practices in South Africa to offer Digital Cosmetic Imaging as a treatment modality to our patients. This process, using specialised computer software with digital manipulation allows you to see what you could look with a smile makeover / veneers / crowns. This allows you to make an informed decision on whether you would like to go ahead with treatment before the dentist has even touched your teeth!
