Cosmetic Dentistry Glasgow

Cosmetic dentistry is very popular amongst people in Glasgow due to the need for people to feel confident in themselves and their smiles. People may wonder what cosmetic dentistry actually is, the answer to this is that it is any type of dental work which is carried out in order to improve the look of your teeth and/or gums. This focuses on improving the colour, shape, size or alignment of your teeth.

Examples of cosmetic dentistry in Glasgow includes:

  • teeth whitening – an effective treatment which can lighten teeth by a few shades. This treatment can be carried out in surgery or at your home
  • veneers – this is a layer of porcelain which is placed over the surface of your own tooth/teeth to make them look better. They can improve the shape, colour or position of your teeth, they can also be used on teeth with chips, gaps or that are broken
  • crowns – a crown or cap is placed over a tooth to restore the natural tooth’s shape, size and ultimately your smile. These are ideal for weak or broken teeth, for teeth that have had root canal treatment carried out on them in order to offer protection or they can be used for aesthetic reasons like covering up discoloured fillings. There are different crowns which people can choose from, these are metal bonded crowns, metal free crowns or gold crowns
  • braces – is another treatment that people regularly ask about due to how effective they are in working. We have been trained by some of the leaders in this industry such as cfast, 6 month smiles and quick straight teeth. Braces can now be very discreet and can be either fixed or removable as well as being transparent
  • dental bridges – these are used to replace missing teeth and can be very effective

Teeth Whitening Glasgow

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment amongst people in Glasgow with many self conscious about the colour of their teeth. Teeth can become discoloured over time due to eating and drinking habits and smoking, that’s why this treatment is now chosen by more people. When having your teeth whitened it’s important that you have it done by a professional like a dentist or a regulated dental professional like a hygienist, as these people are trained in carrying out the procedure and do it on a daily basis. Teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by several shades so the difference it makes is noticeable.

At Govan Dental Care we offer two options for teeth whitening; home teeth whitening or in-surgery whitening.

Home Teeth Whitening

Although this type of whitening takes place outwith the dentist surgery it is still monitored and controlled by the surgery. When you opt for this type of whitening we start by taking impressions of your teeth to make you up a customised bleaching tray which is used for the whitening gel. This type of whitening can show great results in as little as 2 weeks if the gel is applied in small amounts over that period. Of the two whitening options, this one is cheaper.

In-Surgery Whitening

This type of teeth whitening involves patients coming into our surgery in Glasgow to have the procedure carried out but produces instant results. You can either come for one long visit or 2-3 shorter ones for a great result. This whitening uses powerful gels which are applied by the dentist.

A small number of people may feel some tooth sensitivity for the duration of the treatment but this can be controlled by something given by the dentist.

Teeth whitening varies in price due to the different options that are available, feel free to contact us to find out more about teeth whitening or prices.

We have been carrying out this procedure now for many years here at Govan Dental Care so offer effective and safe treatment.

Call us today on 0141 445 1829 to make an appointment to come in and see us.

White Braces Glasgow

smile very bottomWhite braces tend to create a more pleasing, less conspicuous look for patients in Glasgow, especially from a distance.

There are a number of different types of white braces out there, however, they all fall under cosmetic dentistry, this is something that we specialise in here at Govan Dental Care.

When it comes to white braces we offer the following treatments:

  • Quick Straight Teeth
  • CFast
  • Six Month Smiles


Quick Straight Teeth

This is currently the most affordable, comfortable and effective way of straightening your teeth, giving you a perfect smile.

Quick Straight Teeth focuses only on the front 6 to 8 teeth and are suitable for mild to moderate problems. A lot of patients love this treatment as it is generally more affordable than similar options.

The invisible braces system uses only clear braces (brackets) and tooth coloured wires, this makes the clear braces almost invisible in your mouth. When it comes to time these braces are only worn for a short time in comparison to traditional braces.


CFast is a simple, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that will correct alignment issues with your top and bottom front six teeth. This treatment uses orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires and works the same as using clear aligners, however, it’s more predictable and generally works more than twice as quick.

Six Month Smiles

This treatment uses the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The difference between these type of braces is the fact that they concentrate on all of your teeth rather than just the front six. The components of this treatment are unique and focus on moving the teeth that are showing when you smile.

As the treatment suggests, it’s completed in just six months – giving you the smile that you’ve always wanted in this short time frame.

The Cost

Each treatment varies in price and we would be more than happy to discuss the cost with you here at our practice in Glasgow.


If you have been looking for white braces and you quite like the sound of the braces that we can offer then you should make an appointment to come into our practice in Glasgow. Here you will be able to speak to one of our highly trained dentists about white braces and they’ll assess your suitability as well as tell you all of the information about each of the treatments.

For an appointment just give us a call today on 0141 445 1829 or email us at:


Invisible Braces Glasgow

Smile BottomAre you interested in invisible braces? If so you should come to our dental practice, we have a couple of different types of invisible braces to choose from.

The two different types of invisible braces that we offer is Invisalign and Fastbraces.

Invisalign – This involves moving your teeth by fitting removable, see-through aligners that have been specifically made to fit your teeth. When you replace each aligner every two weeks your teeth will begin to move which gradually moves towards the projected final position. A lot of people in Glasgow and all over the world prefer invisalign because the clear aligners mean that no-one can tell they are having treatment done.

As well as being visually appealing invisalign is also comfortable, this is because there is nothing inside your mouth that can irritate your mouth or gums. Having said this there are some people who may experience temporary minor discomfort at the beginning of each new treatment stage as they enter another aligner into their mouth.

Invisalign is removable which a lot of people like because it means that they can eat and drink without any trouble. Although invisalign can have it’s benefits there are a lot of people who don’t keep the aligners in that long which means that treatment times can be delayed so keep this in mind when you are choosing invisible braces.

Fastbraces – This involves fitting one clear wire to your teeth, treatment times can range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months which makes our Fastbraces superior to traditional metal braces.

As well as Fastbraces being superior because of the time there are a number of other factors that should be taken into account when comparing these braces to traditional metal braces.

  • Natural bite – With traditional metal braces there are often changes to natural bite whereas with the Fastbraces system your natural bite will be preserved
  • Extractions – Extractions are often needed with traditional metal braces whereas there is almost always a non-extraction with FastBraces
  • Wires – Traditional metal braces have multiple braces used whereas with Fastbraces there is just one wire used
  • Time – Traditional metal braces are generally in your mouth for about 2 years whereas treatment can be completed in just 20 weeks with our Fastbraces
  • Root movement – There is delayed root movement with old traditional metal braces whereas there is immediate root movement with Fastbraces
  • Root resorption – There is root resorption with old metal braces whereas it has been statistically proven that there is less resorption with Fastbraces
  • Pain – Loads of people report that they experience pain with metal braces whereas with Fastbraces a lot less people have reported that they experience pain
  • Retainers – Metal braces require 24/7 retainers whereas Fastbraces only require 15-20 minute/day retainers


The price of each of these can vary depending on your individual case however, our braces specialist would be more than happy to talk to you about the prices for each based on your case.

We currently have two dental practices in Glasgow that offer both types of invisible braces, with one of our practices being based in Govan and our 1Smile clinic being based in Glasgow City Centre.

If you would like a free consultation with our braces specialist then feel free to make an appointment with us. All you have to do is give us a call.
