Cosmetic Dentist in East Kilbride

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Maybe your teeth are slightly crooked, or they’ve become stained and dull looking over time?

We can help!

Avondale is your friendly, local dentist practice in East Kilbride, specialising in cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry is usually referred to as dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/bite. It focusses primarily on improving the look of your teeth and in turn, your smile.

There are a number of dental treatments that Avondale Dental Practice offer that would fall under the ‘cosmetic dentistry’ category, these include; teeth whitening, adult braces, Invisalign, porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers.

Below we have explained some of the treatments a cosmetic dentist may do:

  • Teeth whitening
    • Over time, teeth can become stained from food, drinks & lifestyle choices. Our professional teeth whitening uses a bleaching process to safely remove stains and can improve the whiteness of your teeth by 5-8 times!
  • Porcelain crowns
    • Porcelain crowns are usually fitted over a decayed or damaged tooth to cover it up and appear more natural.
  • Porcelain veneers
    • Dental veneers are thin, white shells that are bonded to your existing teeth. They are used to fix a number of cosmetic issues, such as crooked teeth, damaged enamel and gaps between teeth.
  • Adult braces
    • There are a number of different ways in which we can straighten teeth so we recommend that you come in for a consultation with one of our dentists so that we can talk you through the different options and agree on one that is best for you.
    • Treatments include Six Month Smiles, Quick Straight Teeth and Invisalign.

Avondale’s Orthodontic Treatments

If you have squint or crooked teeth, then you may be interested in hearing more about Avondale’s range of orthodontic treatment.

We offer our patients Invisalign, 6 Months Smiles and Quick Straight Teeth at our practice and have summarised each of the treatments below to help you choose the right option for you.


Invisalign aligners move the teeth slowly, using custom-made plastic trays. Every two weeks the trays are changed to a different size, and over time the teeth eventually straighten.

Aligners must always be worn and should only be removed when you eat or brush your teeth. These aligners are manufactured with a transparent plastic material tailored to you, so they fit perfectly to your teeth. Hence, when you choose to have Invisalign, complex 3D images of your teeth will be taken which are used to create your trays for the duration of the treatment.

You should expect to have a check-up every two to four weeks to make sure the treatment is progressing properly and to change the aligners.

6 Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a clear brace that’s designed to straighten your front teeth in around six months. It achieves speedy results because it’s focused on tackling cosmetic problems and straightening the front teeth.

This is a different sort of treatment from Invisalign as it uses clear braces rather than invisible aligners so may not be suitable for those individuals who are self-conscious about wearing brackets and wires.

Quick Straight Teeth (QST)

Quick Straight Teeth make clear braces and aligners that are designed to straighten your teeth in around six months or less. If you’re looking for an affordable way to straighten your teeth, and you don’t need significant adjustments, this could be the solution.

The company offers two types of teeth straightening. One system uses clear ceramic braces- like 6 Month Smiles and the other uses invisible aligners- like Invisalign.
