New websites provide information for patients
Two new websites have been launched recently, providing patients with information and advice about cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening.
The first site, teethwhitening.org.uk, allows consumers to research the different types of teeth whitening that are available on the market, either to sue themselves at home or to have carried out more professionally and effectively at the dentist’s surgery.
It details how the treatments are carried out, what costs are involved and if there are likely to be any side effects or problems.
The second new site, cosmeticdentists.co.uk, contains detailed information about cosmetic dentists working in the UK, particularly in London, and the different treatments that each surgery offers.
“There are many technological advances that have been made in the London cosmetic scene which now makes it important to have the right information, for one to make the decision on whether to have any of these procedures done,” said a spokesperson for the website.
Cosmetic dentistry can be very expensive and is often not covered by private medical insurance, so it is important that prospective patients have all the information they need about the costs involved before starting any treatment.
Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just involve the teeth these days, with many dental offices and surgery staff trained in using Botox injections to take the years off. The website will also also detail High Street offices that offer Botox, often just in short appointments that can be made on your lunch break.
“It isn’t always about beautification but it is also about making sure one still feels whole even if they are growing old”, added the spokesperson. “Other people have also undergone serious road accidents that may have damaged their jaw, which results in even more cosmetic surgery needs. The surgeries may be required because they help in reconstructing one’s face even when the damage looks worse than they may have ever dreamed possible.”
