Almost any imperfection in your smile can be transformed with innovative and high-quality cosmetic dentistry in London. But what is cosmetic dentistry? It is a field of dentistry that cares for the aesthetics of your smile and deals with the related dental problems. A beautiful smile is a big step in improving appearance and cosmetic treatments fulfil this desire successfully. It does not always help in improved functionality of your teeth, but definitely caters to minor bite problems.
A wide range of various cosmetic treatments are available to successfully treat a whole host of common smile defects, including:
Yellow or dark-coloured teeth are caused by various factors, including, genetics, age, diet, medication, and too many caffeinated drinks. Whether you have stained teeth or just want to lighten your shade, a bleaching treatment is an impressive solution. Bleaching can either be carried out by your dentist, or in the comfort of your own home. If you opt for an at-home whitening kit, the treatment will last for at least two to four weeks depending on your desired results.
Alternately, if you visit your dentist for teeth whitening, you will need at least a one-hour appointment, with the possibility of further appointments to finish the treatment. Your dentist will provide you with a custom-made mouthpiece, to ensure that the whitening solution spreads evenly over your teeth.
Bonding is used to repair chipped, gapped or decayed teeth and describes the application of a tooth-coloured cement to your teeth. It can even be applied to the entire surface of a tooth to change its shape and colour. Bonding can last for several years and is one of the simplest and more affordable cosmetic dental procedures, requiring just one visit to the dentist.
Crowns are used to restore damaged teeth, making them look healthy and natural again. One of the more expensive options, crowns are mostly used when no other treatment will suffice. Their overall longevity compared to other treatments makes up for the longer procedure.
Teeth that are chipped, discoloured, uneven, crooked or unevenly spaced can be perfected with veneers. Made from custom-made and wafer-thin layers of porcelain or plastic, veneers are fitted over the surface of teeth to improve appearance. An impression of your teeth will be taken to make room for the veneers, which are then applied using a special adhesive. Porcelain veneers are crafted in a laboratory, so will require you to make several visits to your dentist for treatment.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, but want to make a slight improvement to your smile, reshaping and contouring may be the right treatment for you. Crooked, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth can be safely corrected with this popular and effective method. Tooth reshaping and contouring can essentially alter the length, shape and the position of your teeth. It can even correct minor issues with bite for a healthier and better looking smile. The procedure is performed using cutting-edge dental instruments and sensitive abrasion techniques to carefully reduce or eliminate all imperfections. Finally, the teeth are smoothed and polished for that movie-star look.
At your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth, discuss your options, and decide which course of treatment is most suitable for your individual case. You will have the chance to ask any questions about the treatment, so you will know exactly how your new smile will be achieved. Thinking of booking an appointment to transform your smile?
