Types of cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry may involve:

  1. Addition of a dental material to teeth or gums: bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, gum grafts
  2. Removal of tooth structure or gums: enameloplasty, gingivectomy
  3. Teeth whitening
  4. Straightening of teeth

Popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in Singapore:

  • Teeth whitening. Dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.
  • Tooth reshaping removes parts of the enamel to improve the appearance of the tooth. It may be used to correct a small chip, or to alter the length, shape or position of teeth
  • Veneers are custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for closing gaps, enhance the shape, or change the color of teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures. 
  • Dental implants are prosthetic replacements for missing teeth.
  • Gum life raises and sculpts the gum line. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth.

I have always been nervous and apprehensive of dental procedures due to the pain and discomfort. When I needed implants, I went to see Dr. Gerald Tan who was recommended to me. He was very patient and explained the entire procedure clearly to me. Dr. Tan was also very experienced and provided me with excellent dental treatment with minimal pain. I would recommend Dr. Gerald Tan to anyone who needs a good dentist.

It is a very pleasant dental experience with Dr. Gerald Tan after a few unhappy ones at other dental clinics. Through some researches online, I finally decide on Elite Dental Group to perform my first dental implant. I could remember vividly the first day I met Dr. Tan! He was very friendly & positive which the good vibes reduces my anxiety greatly! After my X-ray was out he explained patiently about the procedures and some after care steps I should take note of. After which the surgery began & end in an approximate of 15mins! Am truly impressed by how fast & painless the whole procedure was! Highly recommended!

I had been doing my dental treatment with Dr Gerald for many years. when i first met him, he already gave me good first impression for his attention to details when he explains the dental condition or treatment of the patient. Some things that he discovered and advised are not even the problems that I asked.

Kudos to his knowledge, patience and detailed observation for that. I recently just had implant treatment with him and it is a breeze. i thought it is gonna be a painful experience like tooth extraction or wisdom teeth surgery. however, it is painless and smooth experience and it is done in 20 minutes. Cleanliness is something that he always emphasized on. before surgery, he will advise to have teeth cleaning in order to prevent bacteria to go into the wound. Also, not to mention that everytime after a major treatment/surgery by him, he will follow up to make sure everything is okay and no complication. I had been recommending him to my friends and family. and now i am recommending it to the public through this avenue. Thank you Dr Gerald.

hi...i am 67 years old singaporean male. still actively in employ with Singapore Armed Forced as a Company Commander. Keeping myself fit as a fiddle is of paramount importance. I was having serious dental issue as my teeth started to decay rapidly for unknown reasons. i was pretty scared to see a dentist as the one i saw for tooth extraction left with severe pain and created a fohbia in me to see a dentist. i had no choice but to embark on a search for a reputable Dentist. My search paid off when a good friend of mind in the same age group. recommended Elite Dental Services. I made comprehensive check on Elite Dental Services.I paid a personal visit to the Hancho of Elite....Dr Gerald Tan. i had a lengthy discussion with Dr Gerald and i was impressed with the way he handled my questions & issues. I was convinced that Elite will fix my dental issues.i decided to embark on the dental fixing journey with Elite. I have gone through comprehensive advice & treatment by Elite to date bearing in mind that i have diabetes & high blood pressure both of which are under control through medication. All my teeth so far has been successfully extracted. Now i am waiting to fix my dentures which will act as my temporary teeth while waiting for bone grafting & dental implant. Both these procedures has already been planned carefully for me by Dr Gerard whom i believe is the top dentist in this asian region. I am very confident that Dr Gerald will give me a nice set of dental implants which i believe will boost my ego & morale .

I had both implant and ceramic inlay done by Dr Gerald Tan, it was successful and beautifully done. To be honest, initially I was skeptical about implant as I was comfortable with the gap between teeth however he gave good advise especially on chewing habits that may cause indigestion etc. really changed my mind.

Same goes with ceramic inlay, besides the existing ugly grey can be seen, he again mentioned with the ceramic inlay he'll give a thorough clean-up prior to do ceramic inlay. I have never regretted since and mentioned to colleagues and friends what a wonderful he had accomplished to make me happy and confident again with a BIG smile!

I was always in two minds when it came to dental implants. Even after consulting 1-2 other dentists, I never really understood the concept of dental implant and whether I'll be able to survive the pain. Thank God I consulted Dr. Gerald and he relieved me of the bottle-neck of the teeth issue that I was facing for approximately 5-6 years. In my lower right jaw, there was the a bridge for 1 natural tooth, 1 missing tooth and 1 root-canal tooth. This bridge was done around 13 years back and was ok for a few years. From last 4-5 years though, I was used feel the weight of the bridge putting pressure on my jaw and there was constant discomfort. I always ignored it due to the fear of pain of re-doing it and some or the other reason. Until the bridge almost "collapsed". I am really happy to meet Dr. Gerald at this time.

He explained me the whole course of Dental Implant treatment very clearly and very patiently. He offered comparisons between different types of implants, what in his experience will work the best for me and what to expect when one undergoes a dental implant. Dr. Gerald's pleasant disposition puts the patient at ease and his friendly staff wins your mind with their helpfulness. Right from the time, you enter the clinic to getting your x-rays done, consultation with Dentists, appointments and other admin things - all are handled professionally and promptly. Really impressive! Well, I recently did my dental implant and now instead of that obsolete bridge, I will have one natural tooth, 1 root canal and one dental implant. Easy to chew, easy to floss, easy to maintain, natural looking and long-lasting. And that so-called complicated dental implant surgery that I was dreading for; happened like a breeze all thanks to Dr. Gerald! Seriously, I was anticipating so much pain, was kind of prepared for it...But it was so smooth that I didn't even realize when it got completed. It was almost like going for a SPA treatment. Kudos to Elite Dental Group!

I had a great experience with Dr. Gerald. I had a cracked tooth with tremendous pain, I was referred to Elite Dental Group through a friend. As soon as I stepped in the clinic Dr Gerald and his team took care of everything and I did not have to worry about anything. I had to undergo a surgery and the after care was amazing to say the least. I would highly recommend Dr Gerald for any dental issues as having a bad tooth ache is horrid enough and coming to a reliable and experienced dentist is the best thing to do.

Dr Gerald Tan was very informative when my mother wanted to do an implant procedure. He went through with us what the pros and cons were. He uses modern technology to help trace the problems my mother had with her set of teeth. He is very detailed and reliable. We liked that he cared for the well being of my mother after surgery. He made the whole process different from traditional dentists. Thank you for caring and doing a good job.

I'm glad to find Dr Gerald Tan. He is very thorough in his explanation and with what to expect from this implant procedure. To my surprise, I had very minimal pain and discomfort. The whole process went very smoothly and with very little stress. It was actually quite relaxing. It really changed my perception of implant surgery, because initially I was really fearful of such a surgery.

Dr Gerald Tan is very skilful and knowledgable, and with his team, the whole process went through as planned. Today is the fourth day since my implant surgery and I have had very little discomfort for the first few days and I only took 2 painkillers since the day of the surgery. I believe that I am recovering well! I would definitely recommend Dr Gerald Tan!! *two thumbs up*

I was recommended to see Dr Gerald Tan at Elite Dental group by a colleague at work who has been seeing him for a long time. She did porcelain veneers with him and was very happy with the final result. I have had crooked and yellow teeth for years and i have always been bothered by it, but none of my previous dentists could offer me a solution that i was comfortable with.

I have had braces, smile makeover and teeth whitening consultations with various dentists but none of them could convince me that i would be happy with the final result. Some of them were very aggressive with their treatment advice involving cutting and shaving down of my teeth and this made me uncomfortable.

I decided to see Dr Gerald Tan hoping that he would be different, and i was blown away by the technology that his clinic has. His clinic has an area set up like a photo studio and i had a barrage of photographs taken of my face and teeth from all angles. He then scanned my teeth with a computer and i could see a live 3D reconstruction of my teeth in real time followed by a digital "preview" of what my teeth could potentially look like according to his design! When i saw the before and after pictures, i could immediately see what Dr Tan was trying to plan for me.

For once, i could see my proposed new teeth and how the final result would look like before i even start on any treatment! His partner, who is a braces dentist , then came in to talk to me together with Dr Gerald and gave her input as well because Dr Tan felt that it was not good for me to cut down my healthy teeth for veneers. I felt like the whole team was synchronised in helping me achieve exactly what i wanted and Dr Tan was very honest in telling me about what could and could not be achieved in my case. I did not know that dentistry can be so high tech now and i would highly recommend Dr Gerald and Elite Dental Group to anyone who wants to improve their smile, but is too scared to proceed because they cannot imagine how the final result would look like!

I brought my mum to see Dr Gerald Tan on the advice from my Family doctor, Dr Moti Vaswani. He highly recommended him as a skilful dentist in dental implants.

My mum has been suffering from malnutrition and a whole host of medical conditions like Diabetes and she cannot get the nutrition that her body needs because she is missing so many teeth and she cannot chew and enjoy her food.

Because of this, my mum has shrunk in size over the years and finally our family decided to fund her to get dental implants done so that she can chew and enjoy food again and hopefully regain her strength and weight.

Dr Gerald was very reassuring and patient with my mum and he even went the extra mile to call Dr Moti to find out from him in detail, about my mum's long list of medication and all of her medical conditions because he wanted to be sure that he could do the implant surgery for her safely . He was not pushy and explained in easy to understand terms to all of our family members about the benefits and risks of the surgery.

Although my mum was quite frail, Dr Tan's team of anaesthetists gave us reassurance that we could do the implant surgery for my mum safely just as long as her Diabetes is under good control. The surgery was over in 1 hr instead of the projected 2 hours, and when my mum woke up she didnt feel any pain at all! This was about 3 months ago and we recently went back to Dr Tan for a review, and my mum is so happy with her new teeth and has gained 3 kg!

Thank you Dr Tan and your wonderful team! Highly recommended to anyone who needs dental implants.

I had a dental implant done 5 years ago at a small clinic to replace a missing molar and it was such a painful and horrible experience, that it put me off seeing the dentist for 4 years! I then understood why people have such a terrible phobia of seeing dentists ! So I avoided all dental clinics until late last year when I had a bad fall and I lost my front tooth.

I had no choice but to see my neighbourhood dentist to see what could be done, so that I can face the world again without embarrassment.

I didn't like the idea of wearing dentures, and I didn't like the idea of having good teeth cut down for a dental bridge, so I asked the dentist about whether or not my case would be suitable for an implant.

Unfortunately, the dentist I went to didn't do implants, and he referred me to Dr Gerald Tan at Elite Dental Group because he was well known for doing painless implants surgery.

Of course I did not believe this, but I still fearfully made an appointment to see him. To my surprise, I found the clinic to be very comfortable, like a living room of a nice condominium. It did not look like a clinic at all.

I was seen quite late because the clinic was busy, but it was worth the wait. Dr Tan was very comforting and reassuring in explaining to me my options, and he acknowledged my very bad previous experience.

He recommended that I do the implant under IV sedation with a bone graft because I had lost some bone and gums as a result of the fall. I decided to go ahead with it and it was the best decision ever! I was fast asleep during the surgery and when I woke up 30 mins later it was all over and I didnt feel a thing! I was abit sore the day after but nothing like the surgery I did 5 years ago.

I really appreciate Dr Tan's professionalism and the friendliness of his team. Thank you so much and I would highly recommend Elite Dental to my friends and family!

No doubt the Dentist is very skilful and experienced. Granted they saved me once by attending to me immediately when I had a broken molar. But $450 for molar extraction? That’s like a wisdom tooth work.

Booked another appointment for routine fillings, scaling and polishing since I was already there for tooth extraction.

I expected the cost to be in the ballpark of, the most, $200 based on past similar services.But WOW! $430?!! $90 each for 3 tooth fillings? $90 for scaling and polishing? $40 for fluoride application? My jaws, though tired from opening for all the dental work, still find the last ounce of energy to fall wide open again, shocked at the charges.

After months of patiently explaining the procedure and alternatives, I finally went through with my dental implant surgery yesterday with Dr. Amit Patel. I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome!
