Cosmetic Services at MSC
Beauty is not always easy to achieve and realising your ideal look can be challenging. A perfect smile and a faultless face may seem an impossible dream to reach. MSC can offer you several cosmetic services that may help you towards attaining that dream look. With a confident and dazzling smile you can gain a boost in self confidence and a happier life.
White Fillings: These are a high quality and durable alternative to grey fillings. They blend into the tooth around them for a natural look. Knowing that your fillings are invisible, you can smile with confidence.
Veneers: This is a thin covering which is placed on the front surface of the tooth, to hide unsatisfactory blemishes. Teeth that are irregular, chipped, discoloured or damaged can be masked in this way. The result is very aesthetically pleasing.
Tooth Whitening: This is one of the most common services that we provide. Discoloured teeth are a frequent cause for concern and tooth whitening can address that problem easily. With minimal expenditure of time and money you can have a shining smile.
Airflow: This process uses a blast of air and water to clean and polish the teeth deeply. This can eliminate stains for a brighter smile as well as removing built up tartar and plaque for a deep fresh feeling. This is a simple and inexpensive procedure with great results.
Gold Services: For a more striking look, we offer various gold services including implants, crowns and veneers. As well as giving your teeth a touch of class, gold is also very practical, being strong and longer lasting than ordinary metal dental work.
3 Uses for an Old Toothbrush
- Believe it or not, a tooth brush is a great tool for removing splinters. Using some warm soapy water and gently rubbing the toothbrush over the affected area should help bring the splinter to the surface.
- Keep your delicate jewellery in tip top condition. A tooth brush is great for doing this without causing any damage to your valuables. Use gentle circular motions to retain your jewellery’s colour and bring back that priceless shine.
- Did you know a computer keyboard can be dirtier than a toilet seat? Clean up your keyboard by softening the bristles on a tooth brush and using it to brush in between the gaps on the keyboard.

Mouth cancer is quickly becoming a major problem. The last 20 years has seen an increase of 68% in cases in both men and women.
The most important way that you can defend yourself from mouth cancer is by ensuring that you keep on top of cleaning your teeth.
It is good practice to spend at least 2 minutes brushing your teeth, twice a day. You might be tempted to think that as long as you have covered the bases you will be okay, but this is not true, so be sure to be thorough and complete the job.
It's also essential to floss and use mouthwash. This will help to clean your gums and in between your teeth, as well as reaching those hard to reach areas that you might miss with a tooth brush.
Finally, avoiding sugary drinks will help to maintain strong healthy teeth and gums.
