Cosmetic dental treatment has a holistic effect. It is an excellent way of improving the appearance of a smile, improving your dental health and improving your mental health and well-being at the same time. This is because undergoing cosmetic dental treatment will encourage you to smile more and smiling more makes you a healthier and happier person. Smiling releases dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins, which all have a positive impact on your mental health and your well-being. This is why cosmetic dental treatment is an excellent investment. Speak to your dentist sooner rather than later so that you can begin enjoying the benefits.
Cosmetic dental treatment can be used to improve the colour, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance of your teeth. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then speak to your dentist and find out how to improve the appearance of your teeth, and which treatments and procedures are suitable for you. Some people need a combined treatment plan of different types of treatments, whereas others can transform their smile with a standalone procedure. You can find out about teeth whitening, teeth straightening, creating a bigger and wider smile, or transforming the appearance of your teeth altogether. Your dentist will be able to put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. To begin with your dentist will need to make sure that you have healthy teeth and gums.
Tooth decay or gum disease?
If you are suffering from tooth decay, then it is important that this is addressed before you can undergo cosmetic dental treatment to not only restore good dental health, which is very important but also to prevent further damage to your teeth. Teeth need to be strong for cosmetic dental treatment such as straightening your teeth. If you are affected by tooth decay then your teeth may not be able to withstand the pressure of braces or aligners and this can lead to cracks, fractures and broken teeth. Similarly if you are affected by gum disease, this will need to be treated. If you have cosmetic dental treatment, then your gums may become more difficult to treat. Also if your gums are sore and tender because of an infection, it will be painful and uncomfortable for you to undergo any type of cosmetic procedure. By addressing these issues beforehand, cosmetic dental treatment promotes better dental health, and you are ready to improve the appearance of your teeth more effectively.
Veneers in London
Veneers in London are a very popular method of improving the appearance of your smile. Veneers in London have been used by many civilisations in many different forms. Veneers in London as we know them today are thin, porcelain shells which work like false fingernails for your teeth. They are attached directly onto the surface of your teeth to disguise any imperfections underneath. In this way, they help you achieve a beautiful white smile, regardless of how your natural teeth may look.
Veneers in London are most popularly used to disguise permanent stains that are affecting the appearance of your teeth. These stains could be stubborn extrinsic stains which do not go away with teeth whitening. For example if the patient is a smoker who has smoked for many decades they may find that their teeth have become so dark or brown that teeth whitening alone is no longer sufficient for restoring the white enamel of the teeth. Also, in some cases if you have avoided the dentist for a very long period of time, then stain molecules may have built up on the teeth to such an extent that again they cannot be removed by teeth whitening. In this case, veneers are an excellent solution as they will cover the surface of the tooth and you will be able to choose what colour you want your teeth to be.
Intrinsic stains cannot be removed by teeth whitening. Intrinsic stains affect the dentin of your teeth, unlike extrinsic stains which affect the enamel. The only way to disguise intrinsic stains is with veneers in London. Again you will choose the shade of veneers and as veneers are stain resistant they will remain that colour for as long as they last. Your dentist will help you choose the right shade of veneers as this is very important for the overall look. It is recommended that you match the colour of your veneers with the colour of the white of your eye for optimal results. Your dentist will be able to help you create the perfect smile makeover so book an appointment at your dental practice today, and find out more about veneers and the many advantages that they have.
