London dentists can give you a consultation to determine which cosmetic dentistry treatments would be best for you
As well as offering an excellent and comprehensive service concerned with the health of the mouths of their patients, dentists in the United Kingdom can also carry out a variety of procedures which are designed to improve the look of the smiles of their patients. These come under the collective heading of cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain dental veneers and porcelain dental crowns can be attached to teeth which are cracked, chipped, stained or broken down. The same colour as teeth and highly adaptable, these clever devices make smiles look better because there are no unsightly teeth which stand out from the rest of them.
In a similar vein, dentists can administer teeth whitening treatment. This is done with gels which contain bleaching agents to remove stains. The gel is usually applied in whitening trays which are worn on the teeth either in the surgery or at home, usually during sleep. Some of these teeth whitening treatments can produce incredible results and restore teeth to the whitest shade that is possible.
Braces also come under cosmetic dentistry but having your teeth straightened out conveys health benefits on the patient too. Using metal brackets and wires, dentists can pull teeth into more appropriate positions and rotate them too. Other products are available too which perform similar functions to braces but are more discreet or work with greater speed.
These procedures can be carried out in isolation or in combination with one another in what is often termed a ‘smile makeover’. Book an appointment for a consultation with your London dentist and improve the look of your smile with cosmetic dentistry.
