Over the past decade, cosmetic dental treatments have increased in popularity and are becoming more and more common.
Improving your smile comes with a lot of benefits; not only will it make you look more attractive but it will also help enhance your self-confidence. First impressions are everything so if you are proud of the smile you have and greet people with confidence and a smile, this will only help improve your personal skills too.
There are many cosmetic dentistry treatments to look into if you want to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, here are some of the most popular:
Over time our teeth absorb chemicals and colourants from the food and drinks we consume, so it’s hardly surprising that we lose our natural shade of white. There are many teeth whitening products on the market all promising amazing bright white results, however, the best and safest option is to ask your dentist to create a custom mouthpiece especially for you so that the whitening solution provided by them will reach all the contours of your teeth for perfect white results.
Teeth whitening enhances the natural white of your teeth however this is not a replacement for good oral hygiene.
Dental veneers are a popular solution for people that have spaced, chipped or stained teeth. Veneers are commonly made out of porcelain for a natural look and superior durability to other materials. A dental professional will create custom shells for the teeth you want to improve and secure the veneer to your tooth so that it looks like a natural part of your smile.
If you are looking to drastically change the appearance of your smile in a short period of time, dental veneers are a good option for you.
For minor smile corrections, Invisalign is a very popular solution to get the smile of your dreams. Invisalign technology is a clear removable brace that is especially made for you that makes small movements to your teeth for an overall straighter smile. Invisalign is often favourable over metal braces due to its transparency and removability. Removable braces are often a lot more painless than traditional metal braces and they are not tightened in the same sense.
Missing teeth can be very damaging to your confidence and give you a complex about your smile. The most effective way of creating a durable, natural looking smile that will stand the test of time is by getting dental implants. Your new teeth are held in place by secure dental implants so unlike with a traditional denture there is no change of it coming loose or causing irritation.
