Asthetic Dentistry

We have helped so many patients get the smile they want

Dr Nico’s special area of interest is aesthetic dentistry which is also known as ‘cosmetic dentistry’.  Aesthetic dentistry is used to improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums and/or bite. The treatment may not necessarily be related to the functionality in the mouth. Aesthetic dentistry mainly aims at improving the overall dental aesthetics, resulting in changes to color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.  Aesthetic dentistry covers treatments to rectify Permanent Teeth Alignment and Facial Symmetry Correction.

Botox injections are primarily used in the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Botox is a great non-surgical procedure generally targeting the wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes to make your skin appear youthful. This is an alternative to surgery. Botox is injected into the wrinkle and temporarily causes the muscle to contract.

Botox is also used to treat conditions affecting the body such as lazy eye, eye twitching, muscle contractures, chronic migraines, Hyperhidrosis and much more.

What is Botox?

Botox is also known as Botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein used by medical professionals.

Why Botox?

Botox is injected into the wrinkles and addresses both deep lines and fine lines. This makes the wrinkle have a youthful appearance.

How much does Botox cost?

The cost varies per treatment and is based on how many units we will need for the treatment. Dr Nico will make an assessment and then recommendation/cost during the consultation.

Depending on how many units Dr Nico will need to use, it can take up to 15 minutes per treatment.

Smile Make Over

A smile makeover takes as little as five days to complete. The procedure starts with an initial consultation where Dr Nico will analyse the structure of the patient’s face and smile. Following the hour-long consultation, he will assess the patient’s teeth and needs, and then recommend a treatment to generate image enhancing, life-changing results.

Dr Nico works in conjunction with highly qualified and experienced lab technicians, orthodontists and oral hygienists, and uses top imported dental products in his practice. While quality dental products are of the utmost importance, says Dr Nico, the secret to his success is the time he takes to get to know his clients and to understand their needs.

  • Procedure process: Patient consultation to analyse face and smile followed by recommended treatment plan
