Over the years dentists have developed and improved their methods and techniques so much that they can offer much more than just the wellbeing of your mouth, teeth and general oral health. Although your dentist’s main concern is still your oral health and hygiene, they can now offer you the great smile that you always wanted; this is done through what’s known as restorative dentistry or cosmetic dentistry.
It has been scientifically proven that people with a good set of teeth generally are more confident and have much more self-esteem. So with successful restorative and cosmetic dentistry you can actually transform not only the appearance of your mouth and teeth, but also your outlook on life.
We all know the stresses we put our mouths through on a daily basis, such as the food we eat and the drinks we drink, even the occasional bump and scrape that our mouths endure can lead to discoloured teeth, missing teeth and chipped teeth.
But there is no need to worry because your cosmetic dentist can now reconstruct, restore and correct any problems you have with your teeth and mouth by using several methods and techniques. So that you can smile with confidence knowing that your teeth look great.
There are many improvements that can be made with just a few visits to the dentist; these can be the very simple procedure of teeth bleaching to the much more complicated full smile reconstruction. So whether you have missing teeth or stained teeth why not ask your cosmetic dentist what they can do to improve your smile and most importantly your confidence.
Below I have listed some of the most common and popular treatments available to you, that your cosmetic dentist can offer.
- Teeth whitening or bleaching.
This quite simple procedure involves your dentist using hydrogen peroxide or some other chemical; this is applied to the teeth over several sessions to bring your teeth to a more natural looking white colour.
- Dental Implants.
Missing teeth can be unsightly but with a dental implant you can replace a missing tooth, this is done by attaching an implant (a small screw) to your jaw bone effectively replacing the root. Then a false tooth known as a crown is attached to the implant replacing the missing tooth permanently.
- Full smile make over.
There are many improvements that can be made to your teeth, but for people who are not happy with the whole appearance of their mouth there is a procedure called ‘the full smile makeover’ this can involve many months of work, such as teeth whitening, dental implants veneers and much more with the intension being that all important smile.
