The Top 4 Most Popular Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Having great looking teeth isn’t just about flashing a celebrity smile – feeling good about your teeth can improve your confidence dramatically in both personal and professional situations, helping you to be more happy and more successful. In this article, we look at some of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments that won’t break the bank.

Cosmetic dentistry – what is it?

Cosmetic dentistry uses various techniques to make your teeth look better. It can involve specialist cleaning techniques that leave your teeth looking brighter and whiter, or use various procedures to improve the appearance of missing, broken or damaged teeth.

1. Tooth Whitening

The natural colour of our teeth varies greatly from person to person. In addition, our lifestyle can also have an impact. Tea, coffee and red wine are all known to cause staining when consumed on a regular basis, as is smoking tobacco. Whether you are simply unhappy with the colour of your teeth in general, or wish to get them looking superb for a special occasion such as a family wedding or an interview for your dream job, professional tooth whitening is a great investment. Getting your teeth whitened by a dentist is much more effective than using a home whitening kit, and is also by far the safer option.

2. Veneers

No matter how carefully we brush our teeth, the unexpected can happen from time to time. A visibly chipped tooth can be very frustrating, but luckily there is a simple solution available – veneers. Veneers are very similar to false nails, except that they last much longer and are usually completely invisible. A custom-made wafer-thin layer of porcelain is applied to the front of the tooth to restore its natural shape. The veneer is especially coloured to be as close as possible to your natural teeth, so nobody except you will ever need to know.

3. Crowns

When it comes to missing or damaged teeth, a little more work is required but there are still some great solutions. For a single missing tooth, a crown is often the ideal option. A crown is essentially an artificial tooth that is fitted over the remaining part of the tooth and looks just like the real thing.

If you are missing the entire tooth, crowns are still an option, but you may also require a dental implant. See below for more.

4. Dental implants

A dental implant is a replacement root made out of titanium, which has the unique ability to bond with the bone to give you the firmest possible mount for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to support anything from a single crown or bridge to a complete new set of teeth. Once the work is complete, you will have a smile that looks and feels as good as new and lasts for many years.
