A smile can often say more than words can but for many people, their smile is a source of shame and embarrassment due to the appearance of their teeth or gums. This can have a devastating effect on their confidence and life in general, making it more difficult to interact in social situations. If this sounds like you, cosmetic dentistry may be the solution you have been searching for.
If you have teeth that have become stained through years of drinking coffee or smoking, mismatched or broken teeth, then cosmetic dentistry is the way to go.
The process of teeth whitening is where bleach is used to give your teeth a better appearance and address any staining issues. This is a quick fix treatment with fantastic long term results if used alongside home based top up treatments. Sometimes, teeth become damaged and unlike other things within the body, they don't re-grow like bones and skin does. If your teeth get chipped or have deep cavities, a filling can be used that is made to an appropriate colour to match that of your teeth. If the chip is extensive, the entire tooth can be covered using a porcelain crown to give a natural looking appearance.
Occasionally, it may be the case that the damage is so severe that the tooth affected has had to be removed. In this case, dentures may be used to fill any gaps left by the removal of the teeth. These are designed to function like and have the appearance of normal teeth. For added security, dentures are often secured by the use of a titanium mental dental implant within the gums. The end result is often considered to be well worth any hassle with patients having their smile restored and confidence lifted.
