Cosmetic Dentistry

What we offer

At Butterfly Dental, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to help our patients in Altrincham and Greater Manchester achieve stunning results. 

Whether you’re looking for a simple way to touch up a small imperfection, or you’re eager to completely overhaul your smile, our cosmetic dentists will find a solution that will leave you with the appearance you desire, at a price that’s just as attractive. 

As a South Manchester practice that’s known for going the extra mile for our clients, Butterfly Dental provides exceptional care as standard. We’re a friendly bunch that likes to get to know our patients at a personal level – and we are particularly good at putting nervous patients’ minds at ease. In fact, our principal dentist is trained in hypnotherapy techniques that can be used to settle anyone who experiences discomfort while visiting us. So, if your fear of the dentist is preventing you from investing in a cosmetic dental treatment that will significantly improve your self-confidence, please do contact us for help. 

Teeth Whitening

Completely painless but totally transformative, a tooth whitening procedure from Butterfly Dental is guaranteed to brighten up your smile and freshen up your look. We even offer take-home kits so you can develop your ideal shade over time. 

Teeth Straightening

Align your teeth to perfection with traditional braces, clear aligners, or other orthodontic methods, depending on your requirements. We use state-of-the-art technology – including systems from Invisalign® and QuickStraightTeeth™ – to bring your teeth into line over time

Veneers

Conceal any teeth you don’t like the look of with a beautiful set of porcelain veneers, all of which will be carefully bonded and set to last. A thin, custom-made porcelain material can be applied to the front surface to even out chips, mask staining, or correct misshapen or crooked teeth. 

Bonding

This cosmetic dental treatment is ideal for hiding small gaps and discolouration without investing in full veneers. We will match the enamel-like material to the exact shade of your existing teeth to create a flawless finish. Simple and effective, bonding usually requires just one visit.

Contouring

Reshape pointy teeth, redefine flat ones, or just smooth out minor chips from the front. It’s all possible with our tooth contouring service. We will make careful, minor adjustments to your teeth that will make a huge difference to your smile.

Dentures

Banish all thoughts of grandma with her false teeth by the side of the bed! Our contemporary dentures are designed to fit perfectly and manufactured to last for many years to come. Speak to us today to see if dentures are the right choice for you. 

Gum Reshaping

If you feel like your gums cover too much of your teeth, making them appear much shorter than you would like, we can use painless laser technology to create a smile you’ll fall in love with. 

Why choose Butterfly Dental?

All our cosmetic dental treatments are carried out under the watchful eye of our principal dentist, Dr Bob Mehay, who has received extensive training in all the cosmetic and restorative procedures on offer from our clinic.

Aside from attracting some of the best talent in our industry to our Altrincham clinic, we utilise best-in-class technology to make sure your cosmetic dental procedure is as fuss-free as possible. For example, we will use our digital scanner where we can instead of taking moulds and impressions, which we know can be uncomfortable and unpleasant for some patients. 

As well as ensuring you achieve incredible results from our services, our cosmetic dentists will be able to advise on the best way to look after your smile in the long term. After all, you want your teeth to go the distance! It should go without saying that reducing your intake of fizzy, caffeinated or richly coloured foods and drinks will help to sustain your results. And if you can, we would recommend stopping smoking to preserve your beautiful new smile, too. 

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Butterfly Dental offers a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental bonding, orthodontic treatments, and more. Each treatment is carefully tailored to meet individual aesthetic goals. The cosmetic treatment programme you follow will depend on what you are looking to achieve. Please contact us directly to discuss your ambitions and we will happily provide you with ideas, recommendations, and quotes.

You will meet with our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr Bob Mehay, who will use your initial consultation to better understand your concerns and goals. Based on this assessment, he will recommend personalised treatment options that align with your unique needs.

Cosmetic procedures are often considered elective and may not be covered by your insurance provider. However, certain treatments with functional benefits, such as dental crowns, may be eligible for coverage. Our team can provide guidance on insurance-related queries.

The timeline for results varies depending on the specific procedure. Some treatments, like teeth whitening, offer immediate results, while others, such as orthodontic treatments, may take time. Our dentists will provide a clear timeline during your first consultation so you know precisely what to expect.

Patient comfort is a priority at Butterfly Dental. While some cosmetic procedures may involve minimal discomfort, our team utilises local anaesthesia to ensure your experience is as pain-free as possible. Post-treatment discomfort is typically temporary and manageable.
