Although most of us try to look after our teeth the best we can, some problems will need extra cosmetic treatment in order to get the gleaming white smile that many people desire. Cosmetic dentist treatments come with a range of different options, from teeth aligning to whitening to using white fillings for cavities and tooth erosion. Cosmetic dentistry is becoming increasingly more popular as more treatments become available and a rising number of dentists offer affordable payment plans on many treatment options. We’ve listed some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments in the UK.
Over the years, teeth can become stained from the foods that we eat, the beverages that we drink, and from unhealthy habits such as smoking. Even if you have a mainly healthy diet and don’t smoke, your teeth will probably be subject to some discolouration over time. Tooth whitening treatments today are usually quick and comfortable for the patient, and they are also usually quite affordable. However, when getting your teeth whitened, it’s important to make sure that you choose a registered dentist such as Perfect Smile Spa in order to ensure that your procedure is safe and regulated.
Most people don’t have naturally perfectly straight teeth. Since our adult teeth come through during childhood, many of us are still developing at this time and therefore there may not always be enough space in the jaw for the teeth to come through, causing them to grow too close to each other and cause overcrowding. On the other hand, gaps between the teeth can often be an issue that many people would like to fix about themselves. Modern braces come with a variety of discreet options, with adults who feel that traditional ‘train track’ braces are not ideal able to choose from other alternatives such as removable braces, or braces which fit behind the teeth.
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, dental veneers can be used to correct a vast amount of problems with teeth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, colour and overall appearance of the teeth, and are often used for patients whose teeth have suffered a lot of erosion or discolouration. Veneers are a permanent dental treatment, and can last for many years when looked after and maintained well.
Losing a tooth can drastically change your appearance, especially if the tooth that you lose is one of the front ones making it immediately noticeable when you smile. Tooth loss can occur because of a variety of different reasons, however, dental implants will replace your lost tooth and ensure that your smile is complete again. Strong and very long lasting, dental implants are designed to look and feel just like your own teeth and can be one of the best alternatives to dentures.
Today, cosmetic dentistry truly can transform your smile. With technological advancements increasing and cosmetic dentistry becoming more accessible, these are just some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in the UK.
