If you’re anything like us at 61 Dental then you’ll have had your Christmas tree up for at least a couple of weeks by now, the cupboard is well and truly stocked up with mince pies, and the festive films are on a loop!

One of our all-time favourite Christmas movies has got to be Elf. Not only do we love Will Ferrell as Buddy, you just can’t beat this film’s feel-good factor, can you? For us a 61 Dental, we also adore the line ‘I just like to smile, smiling’s my favourite’, which begs the question, is smiling your favourite, too?

Do you love to smile?

If you have a beautiful, healthy smile that you just love to show off, smiling can be a wonderful thing. However, those who feel conscious about the way their teeth appear often don’t like to show their smile and we believe that these people are really missing out on such a special feeling.

Being able to smile with confidence is a wonderful feeling, which is why we just adore helping our patients to achieve the smile of their dreams through the various treatments we have to offer. If oral health is getting you down then our dental hygienist/therapists have a wealth of tricks up their sleeve to get things back on track for you.

We are also able to provide numerous cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and short-term orthodontics to straighten the teeth, cosmetic bonding or veneers to create a more uniform shape and size to the teeth, and of course tooth whitening, a highly popular treatment that can offer some really outstanding results.

Here at 61 Dental we listen to each patient’s individual concerns and provide advice and solutions based entirely on those unique desires. We always involve the patient in their own treatment planning and we work together to create those dream smiles.

If smiling currently isn’t your favourite, we’d love to make 2019 the year it is, so give us a call on 0161 428 2447 to arrange on no-obligation consultation.

Cosmetic Dentist in StockportTeeth whitening

Nowadays, quite a few people face the problem of teeth staining caused by ageing, smoking, excessive consumption of caffeine and poor dental care. When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, is safe and effective. This is because your dentist will customise your treatment and administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter products. At 61 Dental, we offer both in-practice and at-home teeth whitening treatments to help brighten your teeth for a youthful, more attractive smile.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment, which will allow your Stockport cosmetic dentist to transform your smile. Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain, which are adhered to the front of your teeth, enabling your dentist to close gaps, repair chips and cracks and straighten your smile. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and look and feel like your natural teeth.

White fillings

White or composite fillings provide durability and strength to teeth that need to withstand the pressure of chewing and eating. At our practice, we use tooth-coloured fillings to repair decayed tooth enamel and protect your tooth root from further decay. We are also happy to replace your metal fillings with white fillings for improved aesthetics.

In Stockport, cosmetic dentists are helping people rediscover their lovely smile.

A cosmetic dentist in Stockport differs slightly from a general dentist because their focus is more on the appearance of your smile, teeth and gums. A cosmetic dentist studies the alignment of the teeth, asking themselves questions such as:

‘Are there too many teeth in this mouth?’ – a condition known as over-crowding.

cosmetic-dentist-stockport‘Do these teeth lean too far in or too far out?’ – misalignment is the technical term for this condition.

‘Is too much gum visible when the patient smiles?’ – a feature known as a gummy smile.

These are the naturally-occurring problems that patients come into 61 Dental to ask about treatment for.

They also ask about other dental problems that have developed over the course of their daily lives. These include:

  • Increasing numbers of amalgam fillings in the mouth that can make you feel self-conscious when you laugh;
  • Teeth becoming stained and discoloured, through drinking tea, coffee and red wine, through smoking, and sometimes as part of ageing;
  • Teeth have been or knocked out, fallen out, or been extracted due to infection or too many fillings.

These are all problems that people seek help for. Your Stockport, cosmetic dentist can help with all these problems.

More than just aesthetics

You will be glad to know that visiting a cosmetic dentist is not just pure self-indulgence. The benefits of a great smile of sparkling, evenly-toned, straight, healthy-looking teeth give you a feeling of well being, which comes from several sources.

Firstly, you are no longer burdened by self-consciousness, maybe even outright depression caused by the condition of your teeth and mouth.

Secondly, the mouth and teeth are in a better state, and because straighter teeth help prevent oral diseases, your physical health is also better.

Thirdly, smiling releases natural ‘happy chemicals’, such as serotonin and beta-endorphins, leading to levels of increased happiness.

At 61 Dental, your cosmetic dentist in Stockport can help you reclaim the smile you want. Our treatments include teeth whitening, white fillings, porcelain veneers, acid erosion solutions, and braces. One or more treatments can be combined to create a treatment package known as the Smile Makeover.

Cosmetic dentistry can fix a number of aesthetic issues affecting the shape, colour and size of your teeth. It can improve the look of dull or discoloured teeth, address unsightly gaps between your teeth, as well as restore the appearance of chipped, cracked or severely worn teeth.

cosmetic-dentist-in-stockportAt 61 Dental, we are dedicated to giving you the smile you’ve always wanted using the various cosmetic treatments that our experienced cosmetic dentist in Stockport provides. No matter what state your teeth are currently in, we offer a comprehensive range of cosmetic dentistry options to transform your smile. Here are just two examples of the treatments we offer and how they can help you.

Teeth whitening

Are you tired of hiding your smile because you are worried about exposing your yellow teeth? Tooth discolouration can result from drinking coffee and wine, smoking or simply as a natural effect of ageing. At 61 Dental, we offer two popular teeth whitening services to help you restore your pearly whites: at-home and in-clinic professional teeth whitening.

At-home teeth whitening can be completed within one or two weeks in the comfort of your own home, with the aid of whitening trays and a bleaching gel. In-clinic teeth whitening with Zoom technology can whiten your teeth by up to several shades in less than an hour. Both treatments are safe and effective when carried out under the care of our cosmetic dentist in Stockport.

White fillings

Dentists have traditionally used metal fillings to treat cavities. These fillings are notorious for their unattractive colour. You can now replace your old metal fillings with white composite fillings. With our cosmetic dentist in Stockport, white composite fillings will blend into the background of your teeth for a more natural look. This is because they can be colour-matched to your existing teeth.

Your vision for your smile will be unique, just like you. When you visit 61 Dental, we will help you to articulate your idea of the perfect smile so that we can match it with our treatments and give you the look you want. We can also offer advice on combining treatments for an overall impact that is greater than the sum of its parts.

At 61 Dental, Stockport, cosmetic dentistry is something we use to bring out the beauty in your smile.


Studies have shown that people show a preference for symmetry and find it more attractive. When you have cosmetic dentistry in Stockport, we will help you to balance your smile in a way that can enhance your self-confidence. We also understand that people want changes that appear natural and blend well with the other features of their face and take into account factors like their age and skin tone.

How does it work?

Different treatments work in different ways.

Cosmetic orthodontics focus on realigning your teeth and closing gaps. This is achieved through gentle pressure that is applied to the teeth using some form of braces.

Veneers are thin, hard covers that fit over the top of your existing teeth in order to make them appear perfect. This might mean a slight change in size, covering a stain or introducing uniformity to your smile by getting a full set of veneers.

Teeth whitening works on certain stains to mitigate or remove them. A treatment can lighten your teeth by several shades. Some patients want a teeth whitening treatment to finish off other dental work. This can achieve a dramatic impact for a wedding or other special occasion.

Choosing one of these or another treatment is something your practitioner can help you with when you have cosmetic dentistry in Stockport.

Confidence comes from you

Once you have given your smile the beauty treatment, you can tap into your well of confidence and step into the world in a different way. Knowing that you look great, or relieving yourself of the burden of self-consciousness about a certain aspect of your look, can be liberating. Getting this extra boost means putting yourself into the world in a different way, whether you are at work, socialising or spending time with loved ones.

Have you ever noticed the power of a heartfelt smile and how contagious it is? A smile can brighten someone’s day and make both the giver and the receiver feel good for hours. If you find yourself reluctant to smile because you are less than happy with the appearance of your teeth, why not think about consulting a cosmetic dentist in Stockport?

cosmetic-dentistry-in-stockportThere are so many different elements available to cosmetic dentists that can help you to transform your teeth into a smile that you will want to find more reasons to share. Teeth whitening is proving to be one of the quickest and most popular ways to give yourself a boost. Teeth whitening is suitable for anyone who has all their own teeth, as the process will only work on natural tooth enamel. With care, the benefits of the treatment will last for six months or more.

Normal wear and tear

As modern dentistry helps to improve our general dental health, more of us are keeping our own teeth into later life. Even if we have the best oral health regime, as we age our teeth are naturally prone to wear and tear, which is becoming more common. This can be caused by a number of factors such as drinking sugary or carbonated drinks, eating, or bruxism (tooth grinding). If you are suffering from bruxism you may be fitted with a special guard to wear at night. Tooth wear can normally be treated fairly simply and quickly, but more extensive restorative treatment may be necessary if problems are left untreated.

We also have many patients looking for a cosmetic dentist in Stockport to find out about having their amalgam fillings replaced with white fillings. Modern white fillings are both functional and much more aesthetically appealing compared to traditional amalgam fillings, and are suitable as new and replacement fillings for our patients.

Taking the first step to a better smile

If you would like to know more about a brighter smile, come in to have a talk with the team here at 61 Dental in our modern dental practice based in Stockport.  Cosmetic dentistry is one of the best ways to improve your self-image and confidence, and you can be sure that we use the latest advances in dental technology to help us create the smile you’ve always wanted.

At 61 Dental, we are here to guide you through the many options available to you to improve your smile. A cosmetic dental treatment is one where the result will change the colour, size, shape or position of your teeth to a more aesthetically pleasing effect. It may also have a fringe benefit in terms of your oral health, but this will not be the main goal.

cosmetic-dentist-in-stockportWhen you visit the cosmetic dentist in Stockport at our clinic, they will talk to you about the range that is available.

How do you know what to have?

You may already have an effect that you want to achieve in mind. Perhaps it has been featured in the media or recommended by a friend. That’s great. Let your cosmetic dentist in Stockport know and they will begin to fill you in on the finer detail of treatment. They can tell you what to expect, how long it will take, roughly how much it will cost, and if there are any alternatives that might achieve the same effect. Once you have all this information then you can make a decision about what you would like to have. If you’re not sure at all, then that’s fine too. They will be able to make recommendations.

Long term or short term?

The treatment length depends on what you want to have done and how extensive the required work is. Your cosmetic dentist in Stockport will be able to give you a clearer idea of how long it will take when you have your initial consultation.

As a rough guide though, something relatively simply like whitening can take just an hour if you have it done in clinic. There is also an option for home whitening that takes a couple of weeks.

Veneers cover imperfections or stains on your teeth. This typically takes two appointments,that are around two weeks apart, to complete.

Longer term treatments include teeth straightening. This starts from as little as 12 weeks, but is more likely to take six, months to a year. Dental implants can take at least a few months to complete and perhaps as long as 18 months to two years if you need preparatory work.

The best way to get the answers you need is to make an appointment for consultation with 61 Dental. We look forward to meeting you.

When you visit the cosmetic dentist in Stockport, you are looking for that special something to make your smile stand out.

cosmetic-dentistAt 61 Dental in Stockport, cosmetic dentists are waiting to help you find the treatment that will transform your smile and maybe even your life. Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to be all about covering up your existing teeth with prosthetics. There are many other ways your caring team at 61 Dental can help you upscale your smile. Let’s take a look at the UK’s most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment.

For brighter, whiter teeth

Your cosmetic dentist in Stockport can offer you two different ways to whiten your teeth. This is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in the UK for people who don’t have any artificial teeth or veneers in their mouths. If you do, this treatment is not suitable for you because whitening only works on natural tooth enamel.

Our two whitening systems are:

  • With power whitening, you come to see our cosmetic dentist in Stockport. While you relax in the dentist’s chair, you will be wearing a protective barrier to protect your gums and lips. Your teeth will be immersed in a tray of power whitening gel, which is activated by an ultraviolet light. After about an hour, your teeth will be several shades lighter. Power whitening is a great choice if you have an invitation at short notice to an important event where you need to make an impact.
  • If you prefer to take your whitening at a more relaxed pace, we also offer an at-home whitening system. This is more effective than off-the-shelf at-home treatments because it features a whitening tray custom-made to fit your teeth so that as much whitening gel as possible comes into contact with them. The whitening gel is less concentrated than the power whitening gel, making it safe to use on your own. For this reason, you will need to wear the tray for several hours every day in order to see your teeth become a few shades lighter over the course of a couple of weeks.

To find out more about how teeth whitening can brighten up your appearance, why not pop in to see us, have a chat and make an appointment? We love talking about how we can help our patients.

A smile on the outside can make you feel great on the inside. Achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with the help of a cosmetic dentist in Stockport. At 61 Dental, we employ the latest in dental techniques and technology to give you a winning smile. Cosmetic dentistry is now a pain-free experience that can cater to your individual needs.

cosmetic-dentist-in-StockportWhat can a cosmetic dentist in Stockport do for me?

We understand that a smile is as unique as you. We therefore use a variety of treatment options to address your personal dental concerns.

Sometimes the cosmetic flaws of your teeth can be as simple as conspicuous metal fillings. We offer tooth-coloured fillings to replace your old metal ones; what’s more, these fillings are just as strong. We also offer tooth-coloured inlays and onlays to repair cavities with a natural finish.

Teeth imperfections come in a variety of forms. Veneers are an effective way to address a multitude of issues with your teeth. These porcelain shells fit on top of your teeth and are custom designed to the shape, colour and size that best suits your smile. This means misshapen, slightly misaligned, chipped or stained teeth can all become a thing of the past.

Discoloured teeth can also be quickly fixed using teeth whitening. This temporary solution is ideal for getting you a brilliant new look in time for an upcoming special event. A 61 Dental cosmetic dentist in Stockport can guide you through your options: power whitening at our friendly practice or home whitening.

If crooked, crowded or gappy teeth are keeping you from smiling with confidence, then Invisalign clear braces could be the solution you’ve been waiting for. These clear acrylic moulds discreetly fit around your teeth to gently straighten them. Their removable nature means the effects on your lifestyle will be kept to a minimum.

Your dentist can now offer you so much more than check-ups and fillings. Although these are still an important part of looking after your teeth, to get that extra enhancement, which makes your smile really sparkle, investigate the possibilities of visiting the cosmetic dentist in Stockport.

cosmetic-dentist-in-StockportCosmetic dentistry can help you to change the overall look of your teeth by focusing on one or more of them and adjusting the shape, colour, size or position. Everyone has an idea of the smile they really want and sometimes it can involve a simple procedure like teeth whitening and, at others, a longer term, revitalising project like straightening the teeth. At 61 Dental we have a wide range of procedures for you to discuss with one of our team so you can refine and polish until you get the results you want.

Looking after your teeth

A diligent hygiene routine is the best way to look after your teeth but, over time, a full life can take its toll. Fortunately there are things you can do at the cosmetic dentist in Stockport to return your teeth to their former glory or give you a smile you never thought was possible.

Even if the issue is something you have always had, or that has developed over time such as a misalignment, there are options for teeth straightening that can give you a swift, discreet treatment without disrupting your life or dramatically changing the way you look during the process. When you visit the cosmetic dentist in Stockport at 61 Dental, popular solutions like Invisalign clear braces are something you can consider to straighten you teeth.

Our teeth whitening service can reverse the effects of staining on the teeth. We have two options. The first is whitening at the clinic. This fast, effective process can give your teeth a boost ahead of a special occasion, important work event or even to look your best on holiday. The second is home whitening which takes place over the course of two weeks using trays that are specially made for you. You can even combine the two by getting a treatment at the clinic and then topping up at home to increase the length of the effect.
