A person’s smile can have a huge impact on how others perceive them – it’s often one of the first things we notice about others. Here at Corner House, we believe everyone should have a smile they can feel confident about showing off the world; here are 5 ways we can help improve your smile and in turn, your overall facial aesthetic.
One of the easiest and cost-effective dental procedures out there, cosmetic bonding can be used to enhance and improve discoloured, crooked and chipped teeth. Bonding achieves a similar result to veneers, but takes as little as a single appointment to complete. If you’re looking for a faster and slightly less invasive way of improving your smile, tooth bonding may be a viable alternative to veneers. Whilst dental bondings are less stain and chip resistant than veneers, they are a good option if you’re looking for temporary fixes, rather than long term solutions. Bonding is a popular option for those who have an upcoming event (a wedding or birthday etc) they want to look their best for, especially when the cameras come out!
In-practice teeth whitening
Discolouration affects our teeth at one point or another as we grow older, but certain lifestyle factors, like smoking, alcohol and caffeine consumption can cause it to occur at any age. In-practice professional teeth whitening is the most effective teeth whitening method and uses bespoke whitening trays, meaning it’s 100% safe. Unfortunately there are still many people performing teeth whitening illegally in the UK, using one-size-fits-all whitening trays, putting patients at risk.
Here at Corner House we love seeing patients benefit from teeth whitening and the confidence it gives them in their smile.
Veneers are effective, both for protecting and restoring a tooth and restoring aesthetic to your smile. They’re a versatile restoration used to tackle decay, discolouration and trauma – they can also be used to correct widely spaced teeth. Veneers originated in Hollywood to render actors’ smiles slightly for the big screen – today they’re much more durable and the cosmetic result is outstanding. They’re made from porcelain, which is a good match for real tooth enamel. Veneers are a more costly alternative to bonding but provide a more long-lasting result and better cosmetic finish.
