Boost Your Confidence with Cosmetic Dentistry

A perfect smile will boost your confidence levels in ways you never felt possible and thanks to the relatively painless, simple procedures involved, even the most timid clients should be able to achieve the smile they have always wanted. Below are the list of the three main procedures that is offered by most major cosmetic dentist and outline practices therein.

 

Tooth Whitening

This might be the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry but it’s also the least permanent. Stains and blemishes caused by caffeine, alcohol and soft drinks can be “glossed over” thanks to a whitening gel that is applied with a tray moulded specifically to your teeth 14 days before the procedure. Once the fortnight is up, patients return to the clinic to finish off their smiles with a more powerful whitening spray. This spray coats the patient’s teeth in a second layer and will keep for up to half a decade.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are wafer thin layers of porcelain, which can be applied to your teeth without any need for the uncomfortable drilling and poking generally associated with dental surgery. Veneers are sculpted from custom made impression of your teeth, the veneers will then be bonded to your natural teeth to “Overwrite” any cracks, imperfections or stains and as they bond to the teeth naturally (Though this takes time) they could last as long as 20 years.

Dental Implants

Implants offer a more permanent alternative to veneers but the procedure is slightly more involved. They are incredibly strong, custom built false teeth that are fixed to small titanium rods, which first need to be screwed into your jawbone. Although this may sound painful, the area will be numbered by anesthetic before surgery. The bones will bond with the rods in about 9 to 12 months, after which time the rods start to act like natural roots. From here new false teeth can be attached.
