Cosmetic dentistry has seen some major advancements over the past couple of decades. However, it’s more than just about rejuvenating the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your oral health and strengthen your teeth.
‘Smile Makeovers’ are a treatment ‘bundle’ that allow the patient to choose more than 1 cosmetic treatment.
Teeth whitening – Before applying the whitening agent, our dental hygienist here at Cornerhouse will remove any staining such as tartar and plaque (the build-up of bacteria).
Teeth whitening is a bespoke treatment. This means the whitening trays are custom made for the shape of your teeth, delivering a safe and effective result. Before the whitening agent is applied, you and your dentist will choose the shade of white that suits you.
Why professional teeth whitening?
This procedure is offered by beauty therapists, some of which are unqualified. It is paramount to have this carried out by someone with the correct professional experience. Unqualified therapists sometimes use ‘one size fits all’ whitening trays which can seriously damage your gums and teeth, as they do not match up to the size of your teeth and therefore the whitening agent can leek into your gums, causing irritation and more serious irrevocable problems,
Round-up of the benefits
- Bespoke treatment.
- Safe and effective if carried out by professional.
- Long-lasting results.
Veneers – Veneers are often liked to how a false fingernail fits on top of a real nail and can be used to change the size, colour and shape of your tooth. They are slight shell-like porcelain and recreate the appearance of natural teeth whilst also offering the strength and resilience of natural tooth enamel.
Veneers & teeth whitening – Many people choose to get veneers for certain teeth and then have the remaining teeth whitened so that they match up.
Round up of the benefits
- Your natural teeth are left in tact.
- Veneers can make very dark teeth appear white (some people’s teeth resist teeth whitening, though this is rare).
- Bespoke – each veneer is sculpted for each individual patient, so no one will notice you have a veneer.
Root Canal – If the pulp in your tooth becomes infected, you will need a root canal.
The pulp is the soft tissue at the centre of your tooth which carries the nutrients and nerve supply, connecting it down to the root. Injury, damage and decay can open the pulp chamber up to infection and cause an abscess. Your dentist will remove the infection and seal your tooth with a crown or in most cases, a filling.
Round up of the benefits
- It’s a very simple procedure that can be carried out in one sitting.
- Root canals can save a tooth from extraction.
- Cosmetic benefits.
- Improves the strength of your tooth/teeth.
