Even slight damage to a tooth or teeth requires a prompt visit to your dentist. At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we offer a number of ways to restore and repair worn or otherwise damaged teeth, ensuring that the results will look entirely natural, whilst also helping to preserve the health of your tooth.
The smallest crack in a tooth is still enough to let bacteria enter it, which can lead to infection and the need for root canal treatment to cure. If a broken tooth is causing you pain, has sharp edges that can damage your tongue, or is extensively damaged, an appointment with an emergency dentist should be arranged. We offer same-day emergency dentist appointments at our Weybridge clinic whenever possible, so call us straight away.
For less extensive damage, you can wait until the next available appointment at our Weybridge clinic.
There are several ways your Weybridge dentist can repair and restore your damaged tooth, and the best option will depend on a number of factors, including:
- The location of the damaged tooth
- The nature and extent of the damage
- Your overall dental health
- Your personal treatment preferences.
When you come for a consultation at Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we will assess the appropriate treatment options and talk through them with you so that you can make an informed choice.
Options for tooth restoration include:
White fillings are often used for teeth that are not immediately in the smile line. If you have tooth decay, your dentist will remove this before filling your tooth permanently.
This is a good option for damaged front teeth, and involves using white filling material to rebuild your tooth. The shade of composite material used will be carefully matched to the natural colour of your teeth.
Porcelain inlays or onlays
Inlays and onlays are a good option when there is not enough healthy tooth structure to support a filling. They are often considered a half-step between fillings and crowns. A minimum of two appointments will be needed at our Weybridge clinic; a temporary filling may be used in the interim.
Looking for a new dentist can be a stressful experience. You want a clinician you can trust, a practice that offers high-quality, caring, and professional treatment, and knowledge that you and your family will be in good hands at all times, whatever treatment you need. At Weybridge practice Danny de Villiers Dentist, we offer all of this and more, and have many happy patients who will vouch for the high standards of treatment and care that we are proud to provide.
Finding a dental practice can be particularly stressful if you are afraid of the dentist. Dental phobia is a common problem, and at our Weybridge practice it is one we take seriously. You needn’t fear being judged if your fear or anxiety has caused your teeth to fall into poor condition. We know that being judgemental is not helpful and is in fact counter-productive, only serving to increase patients’ anxiety and make them want to run out of the dental practice and never come back.
At Danny de Villiers Dentist, Weybridge, we have a great deal of experience and success in working with nervous and phobic patients. All we want to do is to get you back to full oral health and to help you maintain it going forward.
If you are scared of the dentist, we invite you to join us for a no-pressure, informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee at our Weybridge clinic (away from the dentist’s chair!). We have many ways that help nervous patients get treatment and will work with you to find the perfect one for you.
When you come for your first appointment with the dentist at our Weybridge clinic, you will first meet our Treatment Coordinator, who will help you complete your medical history form. It is important to complete this fully, so that your dentist is aware of any conditions or medications that could affect treatment options.
Your thorough clinical examination will last approximately 45 minutes, with x-rays taken if needed. At the end of this appointment, your dentist will provide you with a detailed treatment plan.
A cosmetic dentist has many different treatment options available to suit all needs and budgets. All are designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, and many also have additional benefits for your general health. At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we offer a number of different cosmetic treatments large and small, and welcome new patients for a no-obligation consultation to discover how we can help you.
The term “smile makeover” means different things to different people. From a quick boost to your smile with teeth whitening session to extensive restorative work involving a combination of several treatments, whatever your smile needs your cosmetic dentist will be able to help you.
At our Weybridge dental practice our team take great pride in helping patients to restore their confidence, no matter what treatment they require. We understand that every patient’s needs are as individual as they are, which is why we invite anyone interested in cosmetic dental treatment to join us for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist.
Your dentist will listen to your concerns about your current smile and will discover what you would like to achieve from treatment, before carefully examining your teeth, gums, and surrounding structures. They will then run through the pros and cons of all relevant options to help you get the smile of your dreams.
While some patients require just one treatment, others will benefit from a combination of two or more options from our extensive cosmetic dental menu. Whatever you require, your cosmetic dentist will draw up a detailed treatment plan, including projected length of treatment, and costs. All procedures are carried out here in the comfort of our modern Weybridge practice.
Among the popular treatments available from our cosmetic dentist are:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- White fillings
- Cosmetic crowns
Should you want to replace metal fillings with a more aesthetic alternative, your cosmetic dentist has many options at their disposal. At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we have helped many patients enjoy a smile makeover with the help of tooth-coloured alternatives to metal fillings.
Once upon a time, metal amalgam was the only filling material available for patients who had experienced tooth decay. Whilst this is a strong and durable option, it can also be very obvious, particularly if the decayed teeth are located near the front of the mouth.
White fillings have been around for a long time, but for many years were not considered as strong and durable as their metal amalgam counterparts. Nowadays things have changed, and thanks to advances in the materials and techniques used, white fillings are now regarded as almost as strong as metal amalgam ones, and suitable for use anywhere in the mouth.
At our Weybridge dental practice your cosmetic dentist will closely match the colour of your white filling material to the natural colour of your teeth, so that it will blend in seamlessly and no-one will even know your tooth contains a filling. We only use white fillings at Danny de Villiers Dentist.
For larger cavities, a tooth-coloured inlay or onlay may be required. These are in effect a half-step between a composite white filling and a crown, are made from porcelain, and give your tooth extra strength. Again, your cosmetic dentist will be sure to select a shade of porcelain that is in keeping with the natural colour of your teeth, for a seamless blend.
If you have a tooth that has been weakened by a very large metal filling, by root canal treatment or by decay, a crown may be required. The crowns used at our Weybridge practice are made from porcelain or ceramic and contain no metal.
A good cosmetic dentist will always tell you that there is no such thing as a quick-fix solution for aesthetic dental problems. At Danny De Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, we believe all dental work should be of the highest quality, designed to last. However, for those patients who require a fast way to boost their smile, we do offer some lasting cosmetic options with short treatment times.
If you are interested in aesthetic treatment, we invite you to join us at our Weybridge practice for a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. He will carefully examine your teeth and gums and will listen to what you would like to achieve from treatment.
Here are some of the fast and effective ways to have a smile makeover at our Weybridge clinic:
When carried out by a cosmetic dentist, teeth whitening is a fast, reliable and safe way to boost the appearance of your smile. Special dental bleaching gel is used to remove stains that have built up on your teeth. We use the popular Zoom teeth whitening system at our Weybridge practice, which is renowned for producing excellent results.
Replacing metal fillings
If old metal amalgam fillings are adding an unwanted silvery or grey tinge to your smile, your cosmetic dentist can replace them with tooth-coloured alternatives. Depending on a number of factors – including the size and location of your existing fillings, and your personal preference – metal fillings can be replaced with tooth-coloured composite fillings, porcelain inlays or onlays, or porcelain crowns. Whichever option you choose, your filling replacements will be carefully matched to the natural shade of your teeth.
A veneer is a micro-thin porcelain shell bonded on to the front surface of your tooth. Veneers can improve the appearance of gappy, slightly misaligned, chipped or permanently discoloured teeth.
As a cosmetic dentist, one of the most common complaints heard from patients is that they wish they had straighter teeth. At Danny De Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, discreet orthodontics is one of the most frequently requested treatments from our extensive cosmetic dentistry menu.
Straightening adult teeth
Lots of adults consult a cosmetic dentist wanting to straighten their teeth, without wanting to wear traditional metal “train-track” braces. Whilst braces remain the best way to straighten teeth in many cases, giving your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over the movement of your teeth, it’s not difficult to see why obvious metal braces can be incompatible with a professional adult lifestyle.
At our Weybridge dental practice, we are well aware of these concerns, which is why for patients interested in cosmetic teeth straightening we offer an alternative – Six Month Smiles.
What are Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles are discreet adult braces designed primarily to correct aesthetic issues with your smile. As the name suggests, they have an average treatment time of just six months, working so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those that are visible when you smile.
Whilst the design of Six Month Smiles incorporates many of the positive points of traditional braces, they are much more discreet. This is because the brackets are clear and the wires are tooth-coloured, so they will blend in with the natural colour of your teeth and will not be immediately obvious in everyday life.
How do I get this treatment?
If you are interested in treatment with Six Month Smiles discreet braces, you should first book a consultation with a cosmetic dentist here at our Weybridge practice. They will carefully examine and assess you to see if this is the most appropriate treatment, and if it is will then take impressions and measurements to create your clear braces.
A cosmetic dentist has several procedures at their disposal to help you boost the appearance of your smile. Here at Danny De Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, our skilled cosmetic dental team have helped many patients to improve the way their smile looks – and with it boost their self-confidence.
The question of what a cosmetic dentist can do for you depends on what you want to achieve.

The choice really is yours!

Teeth whitening is one of the most common treatments patients ask their cosmetic dentist for. At our practice n Weybridge, we offer the popular Zoom tooth whitening system, which is carried out here at the practice.
Your cosmetic dentist will shield your gums and lips and will carefully apply whitening gel to your teeth, before using a special light to activate it. This brightens your teeth and removes everyday stains caused by foods, drinks and smoking.
Replacing metal fillings
Metal amalgam fillings can be safely replaced with either white composite (tooth-coloured) fillings or tooth-coloured inlays and onlays, depending on the size of the cavity. Your dentist will closely match white fillings, inlays and onlays to the natural colour of your teeth, so they will blend in perfectly.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used by a cosmetic dentist to cover permanently stained, gappy, chipped or uneven front teeth. They are attached to the front surface of the teeth using dental adhesive and look very realistic.

At our Weybridge dental practice, we offer two options for teeth whitening treatment: home teeth whitening and Zoom 2 in-chair tooth whitening. Treatment times vary from two weeks to just one hour, depending on what option you choose and how much whitening is needed.
Remember, teeth whitening must by law only be carried out under the supervision of a dentist. Highstreet and online products are not safe, and not effective.
Zoom 2 in-chair whitening
Carried out by Danny here in the comfort of our Weybridge dental practice, this option uses the popular Zoom system and takes about an hour.
After protecting your gums and lips, your cosmetic dentist will apply whitening gel to your teeth and will use a special laser light to activate it. You will need three-four 15 minute rounds of treatment, after which your teeth will be several shades lighter.
At home whitening
At home whitening uses custom-made whitening trays and whitening gel. You place some gel in the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.
A cosmetic dentist can use porcelain veneers to cover permanently stained teeth, as well as to disguise small cracks and chips and mild alignment issues. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain attached to the front of the teeth with strong dental adhesive. They look entirely natural and beautiful.
If you’re thinking of consulting a cosmetic dentist to improve the look of your smile, you may want to think about combining treatments to achieve the perfect smile.

Six Month Smiles plus teeth whitening
Six Month Smiles are a revolutionary way to straighten your teeth, quickly and discreetly. Many adult patients seek out a cosmetic dentist with concerns about the alignment of their teeth. They may have missed out on orthodontic treatment as a child, or their teeth may have moved back to their old position after treatment.
One thing they are adamant about is that they don’t want to wear conventional metal braces, which are not practical or compatible with busy adult lifestyles.
Six Month Smiles embrace the traditional principles of orthodontics and modify them for the modern age, applying them to the front six teeth – those that show when you smile. They also comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, which means they are very discreet.
Because they focus on the front teeth only, they have an average treatment time of just six months. Six Month Smiles can correct twisted, crooked and gappy teeth in a very short time. They are popular with cosmetic dentists and patients alike.
After completing treatment, many patients at our Weybridge dental practice like to further boost their smile with teeth whitening. We use the Zoom whitening system, carried out here in the practice by Danny. In just one hour your teeth could be several shades brighter.
