It has become increasingly popular to visit the dentist to discuss cosmetic dentistry options for aesthetic purposes. In recent times, people are more self-conscious of their dental imperfections and smile. Changing the appearance of your smile could be the biggest change you make in your life and sometimes, treatment can be straightforward. If you too are feeling embarrassed of your teeth, here is a rundown of the cosmetic procedures available to you.
Veneers are an increasingly popular way to dramatically improve the smiles of people who have; protruding teeth, gaps, discolouration and crowded teeth. A veneer is a custom made, front surface for a tooth, made from porcelain. For an optimum aesthetic result they can be custom made to any shape, shade and contoured to create a perfect smile for you.
Having misaligned and crooked teeth can cause some people embarrassment and reluctance in smiling or showing their teeth. Orthodontic treatment can provide evenly spaced, straighter and more attractive teeth. The modern straightening systems such as the Inman aligner, Six Month Smiles and Clearsmile aligner, are less obtrusive and near-invisible compared to traditional braces. Having straighter teeth can have a huge positive impact on your confidence, your quality of life and of your smile.
As time goes by and we get older, our teeth can become discoloured and darken in colour. Lifestyle factors can also speed up the process and cause more discolouration. The most popular and easiest way to treat this dental alignment is by bleaching teeth to restore whiteness. When implemented by a professional dentist, this form of treatment will be able to give you a brighter, more youthful smile, with no damage to the tooth in anyway.
Normally missing a tooth either meant having dental bridges to fill the permanent gap or wear dentures. However, there is now the option of having a permanent tooth replacement, in the form of dental implants. They can replace either just the one tooth or numerous teeth and are the nearest thing to having your own natural teeth. Like veneers, they are custom fit to the shape of your teeth but are made from a realistic ceramic material.
For cosmetic value, crowns can be a highly useful way to make your smile look attractive and striking once more. Similar to veneers, crowns completely cover the surface of a tooth to protect it and restore it to its original appearance and shape. If your teeth have become chipped, warped or damaged by heavy fillings, crowns may be the best choice to rebuild and renew your smile.
