Non-Invasive Cosmetic Dentistry
Q. What does "non-invasive cometic dentistry" mean?
A. Non-invasive dentistry means preserving healthy tooth tissue when carrying out dental treatments.
Q. Why do we want to preserve tooth tissue?
A. If we over-prepare teeth, this can result is irreversible damage to your tooth health. Once a tooth enters the restorative cycle, it will always need maintenance and replacements. No dental treatment ever lasts forever. The more treatment we carry out to a tooth, the more risk there is of it becoming irreversibly damaged. If this happens, you may need to have root canal treatment or other invasive treatments.
Q. What is a non-invasive smile makeover?

Q. How is our straightening treatment non-invasive?
A. We don't remove teeth, file them down or use attachments (which can damage your enamel). Find out more about our completely non-invasive straightening treatments here.
Q. How are whitening treatments non-invasive?
A. Dr Wyman Chan's own invention is a gel which contains a special, patented activator that is scientifically proven to boost stain-removing power by three-fold and neutralise the acid, making it alkaline and harmless. Acidic gels are abrasive and damage your enamel.
