Considering cosmetic dentistry?
There are all sorts of reasons for considering cosmetic dentistry apart from improving the look and feel of your teeth and gums. There are the undoubted psychological benefits for patients who have lost confidence in their smile and there the practical benefits for those with dental problems such as damaged or misaligned teeth.
What can cosmetic dentistry do for you?
- Give you a clean white smile
- Improve the look of your teeth
- Straighten your teeth
- Replace broken teeth
- Close gaps between your teeth
- Correct an overbite

Once you tell us what makes you unhappy we'll suggest a plan of action for you to consider which will probably involve one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Choose from a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments
We help a wide range of cosmetic dentistry patients here in Glasgow and it all starts with a free initial consultation.
Patient review: Our services road tested!
"In one game when I played in the States, I took such a hit on my bottom teeth that one of the incisors was knocked clean out. The dentist told me to go back and get it. I've had a dental implant and porcelain crowns. It's got to the stage where I'm in shock when I now go to Crystal Dental Care and get the all clear! Luckily I was there again this week and both Dr Murphy and Laura, his hygienist, seemed happy with everything. It goes without saying that I always put my gum shield in before stepping onto the ice. Brendan was quick to check that it was professionally made and well fitting. After my experience I'm not taking any chances! "
