If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry could be the answer. A cosmetic dentist can carry out a number of procedures to improve your smile from simple teeth whitening to a full smile make over. Other procedures include teeth straightening with clear braces as well as dental implants to fill gaps or stabilise loose dentures.
Cosmetic dentistry is helping patients regain confidence and self esteem by improving their smile.
Is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. It is a quick, safe and effective way to brighten up your smile. Sometimes this will be the only treatment patients require, while in other cases it will be the perfect way to add that extra brightness boost after other cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth straightening.
This is a growing area and there are now many discreet options available for patients who want to straighten their teeth without the need to wear obvious metal braces. Both fixed appliance (brace) and removable appliance (aligner) treatment are available. 6 month Smile is a brace system that we often use because it is discrete as well as quick.
If you are faced with tooth loss, or have already lost all or some teeth then dental implants could be the answer. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, used to construct a bridge for larger gaps or to stabilise or fix very loose dentures. There are numerous benefits to dental implants over other treatments these include, helping to preserve bone so helping to keep your facial support. Dental implants allow you to chew and enjoy your food when compared to loose dentures and treatment is long-lasting. Dental implants are not the cheapest way to replace teeth, but they should last the longest, and they have been shown to be more cost effective in the longer term.
Veneers or Crowns
In some cases the use of veneers or crowns may be the solution to give you that perfect smile. A smile makeover will always start with an assessment by your dentist. They will carefully examine your smile and find out what you would like to change. Then, working together with you, they will provide personalised recommendations and a bespoke treatment plan to help you achieve that smile you’ve always wanted.
