Dentistry is no longer just a case of filling and removing out teeth.

Nowadays many people turn to cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry’, as a way of improving their appearance.

They do this in the same way they might use cosmetic surgery or even a new hairstyle. The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, implants and tooth whitening.

Gone are the days when a filling had to be a lump of metal stuck in a tooth. Today, in most cases, teeth can be restored to look like natural teeth. No-one has to live with unattractive gaps, chips, metal fillings, discoloured ore crooked teeth.

We understand that is can be a little daunting when deciding whether cosmetic dentistry is right for you. It is important to know and understand the benefits and risks and what you can expect from any dental treatment. Today, cosmetic dentists offer a range of treatment that can achieve great results without compromising the long-term health of your teeth.

The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is a world-leading authority on cosmetic dentistry. Members include dentists, technicians and students who share a commitment to clinical excellence.

The BACD introduced credentials to allow its members to demonstrate that they have reached an agreed level of ability. This process has been designed by UK practitioners for UK dentists and technicians and therefore will be reflective of the way in which cosmetic dentistry is practiced in the UK.

Accreditation involves the anonymous submission of clinical cases of before and after pictures, showing cases which have been prepared by the candidate working independently. When these have all been passed, there will be a Viva examination where candidates will be asked to produce a treatment plan following a diagnosis and answer questions from examiners about treatment methods chosen and materials used.

As a member of the BACD Dr Tromp is enjoying to “pursue excellence” through continuing education.
