Dentistry today is a more comfortable experience due to improvements in technology and sedation techniques, which makes cosmetic dentistry a more attractive solution for those looking to enhance their facial appearance. A smile is often the first thing people notice when you first meet.
A cosmetic dentist is focused on using a range of dental treatments to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. At Harley Street Dental Clinic in Harley Street, highly trained dentists apply the latest dental techniques and materials to rejuvenate your smile.
The impact of cosmetic dentistry
Achieving the smile you have always wanted through cosmetic dentistry can boost your confidence, both in your professional and personal interactions. In today’s world where there is an increasing focus on outward appearances, cosmetic dentistry enables you to let go of any insecurities you may have about your smile, so you can focus on doing what you do best. Some cosmetic treatments also come with benefits for your dental health by restoring function and form to damaged teeth.
What are your treatment options?
The sheer number of cosmetic dental treatments may leave you feeling overwhelmed, which is why it is best to seek the advice of a cosmetic dentist who can guide you through the solutions available.
If it is your gums that are of concern, gum lifts are available to adjust the height of your gum line. Gums that cover too much of your teeth can leave you with a gummy smile and teeth that appear shorter than they actually are.
When it comes to your teeth, veneers can tackle a range of problems, including chipped, cracked, stained, misshapen and even slightly misaligned teeth. These thin shells are custom made according to the size, shape and colour that you would like. These can be made from porcelain, a composite material or ceramic.
For a quick fix for stained teeth, teeth whitening offers an effective, temporary solution. A clinically safe bleaching agent can make your teeth appear a few shades brighter and remove certain stains. This can be carried out at home or in the dental chair.
