Six Month Smiles In Essex

Friday, May 31st, 2013

A cosmetic dentist specialise in smile makeovers. Over time people can feel nervous about smiling, whether their teeth have been discoloured, chipped and so forth. A massive problem people have is misaligned teeth. With Six Month Smiles in Essex it is possible to correct this.

What are Six Month Smiles?

Six month smiles are braces that you wear over a six month period. Whereas “normal” braces can take between two to three years to be effective this is a lot quicker.

I don’t want to have a cattle grid on my face for six months!

Don’t worry! People often think of the exaggerated braces in cartoons and television series that are often deliberately exaggerated for comic effect. In reality the technology has advanced so that most braces do not look that noticeable.

Furthermore Six Month Smiles are even more discreet. The reason for this is that they are clear. While they are indeed metal like other braces the colour means you can only really see they are on your face if people look closely.

How do they work?

There are two reasons why six month braces are effective. One is the nickel titanium wire used in the braces. The other reason is the system shifts prominent teeth, allowing the alignment process to work a lot quicker than other braces.

Aside from quickness what are the other advantages of Six Month Smiles?

The main advantages as well as speed are the fact that they are very discreet and hard to detect. However speed and discretion should not be you sole consideration. Safety and quality is also something you need to think about. More importantly the process is very safe and has had proven results!

Some people may also be concerned about the cost. With this kind of procedure time is money and the less time spent on treatment the less it costs!

How do I know if Six Month Smiles are suitable for me?

Everyone is different and some treatments may be more appropriate than others. This is why it is worth talking with a cosmetic dentist over an initial consultation. You can talk about what you want from the treatment, your budget and any other concerns or issues. With the right treatment you can enjoy a smile makeover in Essex!

Cosmetic Treatments Available In Essex

Friday, May 24th, 2013

People often dream about being able to afford makeovers, plastic surgery and so forth. It is often something people say they will do “when they win the lottery.” The thing is that a lot of the treatments you can have to improve your self confidence do not require multiple millions and with the cosmetic treatments available in Essex you can get your makeover at a surprising affordable price!

Below are a few examples of the treatments available to you.

Tooth whitening

Yes there are toothpastes and home kits that offer whitening. However the toothpastes offer a limited amount of whitening and you need to be very careful with home based kits, both in terms of making sure they are genuine and (more importantly) safe.

Professional teeth whitening will be done with your oral health in mind so can be both safer and more effective. They can also offer advice on how to improve your oral health so that you can ensure stains do not undo their good work!

Non Surgical Face Lifts

Yes you did read that correctly! You do not need surgery in order to get a facelift. With professionally administered injections of botox you can smooth out wrinkles on the face. While often thought of as something that works on the forehead, it equally works on smoothing out lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the midsection of the face too.

Dermal fillers

These are used to restore plumpness in the skin. This is often especially useful for older people as the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin fall, creating dryness and increasing the appearances of lines and wrinkles. The process is very safe and painless, so you can be assured you will get gain without pain!

 

 

Juvederm

Skin tends to dry out as it gets older. One way of restoring it is by using a gel filler called Juvederm. This product is particularly effective at smoothing out wrinkles and last for up to a year!

Find out more

Every client is different and an experienced cosmetic practitioner will be sensitive to any concerns. They can also discuss any potential risks or side effects, although these are often quite minimal. You can also use this time to find out about their experience and the feedback they have received from other clients.

Getting The Best Tooth Whitening In Essex

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Teeth whitening sounds like something only celebrities can get. It sounds like a luxury treatment. However now you can get tooth whitening in Essex so you can enjoy the full benefit of a brighter smile!

Healthy teeth

The first thing to say is that if your teeth are not perfectly white this does not mean you have unhealthy teeth. The appearance is not necessarily a reflection of oral health. Likewise someone with naturally white teeth should still make sure they are properly looked after.

Better appearance

However if your teeth are discoloured it can have an impact. We associate smiling with being positive and if you are worried about the look of your teeth you may be less inclined too. This can make it harder to talk to people and can have a very real impact on your self confidence.

With whiter teeth people tend to feel more relaxed and more willing to smile. It can make a massive difference!

 

 

Choose a professional

It may be tempting to read this and think “but you can get tooth whitening kits on the high street.” While this is true and some are effective you do need to be careful while using them.

You can get more effective results using the services of a professional. Furthermore some whitening kits can only be used by professional cosmetic dentists due to restrictions on the ingredients used in them that need to be handled carefully.

No fakeness

One potential concern people can have is an overly slick looking set of pearly whites, the oral equivalent of a neon orange fake tan! In practise this does not happen because a cosmetic dentist can gradually improve the shades of your teeth to create a brighter but also a more natural and healthy look to your teeth.

Learn more

The effectiveness of your teeth whitening will depend on your oral health. Therefore before whitening you may want to consider stopping smoking and cutting down on coffee, red wine and other things that can stain teeth (as well as other additional health benefits!)

This can all be discussed during a free consultation with the cosmetic dentist. Everyone is different and a good practitioner will look at your personal situation and decide what treatment is appropriate. It is also a good time to talk to them about the procedure and any questions and concerns you may have.

The Benefits Of A Cosmetic Dentist In Essex

Monday, May 20th, 2013

There are numerous reasons why you may want to use the services of a cosmetic dentist. For example think of any of these situations have ever applied to you:-

  • Do you ever avoid having your picture taken because you feel self conscious?
  • You have tried whitening toothpaste and home whitening kits but still want whiter teeth.
  • You accidentally chipped or lost a tooth in an accident and now have a gap.
  • You are looking for alternatives to dentures.

 

All of these situations and more can be dealt with by a cosmetic dentist in Essex. Let’s look at each one and see what can be done with cosmetic dental treatments.

Dealing with self consciousness

The way you deal with this depends on why you feel self conscious. For example if teeth are discoloured you may want to consider a laminate like the Snap On Smile placed over the teeth. This often helps people to relax.

If you have teeth that point out a bit then you may want to smooth them over with tooth contouring. This is often done in conjunction with teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening

This process is often misunderstood. There is the fear of an overly fake look. In reality a cosmetic dentist will look at the natural shading of your teeth and improve it. Tooth whitening often improves teeth by a couple of shades, something that the dentist can show you during an initial consultation.

Chipped or lost teeth

If you have lost a tooth it is important to get treatment as soon as possible. The reason is that the nerve endings where the tooth used to be can close up, making it harder to put an implant in there later on.

The good news is if you can get an implant in there you can often use them in exactly the same way as a regular tooth and should not impair what you eat, how you brush your teeth and so forth.

Alternatives to dentures

There are a number of alternatives if you do not want to use adhesives. Implants and Invisalign detachable trays can be used to straighten the teeth without having to worry about anything coming loose while eating food, jogging and so forth!

 

 

The right treatment for you

How do you know what cosmetic dental treatment is right for you? It’s simple- go to a professional and talk to them. They can go over the options so you can find something appropriate for your needs.

Choosing Cosmetic Dental Treatments In Essex

Friday, May 17th, 2013

You can find a number of cosmetic dental treatments in Essex. However different people have different needs. What you want largely depends on your current oral health and the areas you would like to improve. This quick overview will look at possible problems and possible solutions.

I have a missing tooth and want something in place that is easy to look after.

In this situation a titanium implant is ideal. Titanium implants are often useful because they allow you to carry on eating, playing sports and so forth without fear of anything coming loose. Furthermore there is no need for any adhesive.

I have stains on my teeth.

There are a couple of options for this. One option is tooth whitening. While there are kits you can use at home the danger is that you may not apply it properly. A trained professional can ensure that any bleaching agent used is safe and applied properly with minimal risk.

If you do not want teeth whitening then another alternative is the Snap On Smile. This is a thin resin that can be placed over the teeth. It is also a good way of covering up missing teeth or any gaps.

I have pointy teeth that stick out from the others.

A good way to deal with this is tooth contouring. This is where teeth are smoothed over to create a more consistent look. This can often be done in combination with teeth whitening for the most effective results.

I need to wear braces but I don’t like the thought of people knowing I’m wearing them!

 

If this applies to you Invisalign may be your best option. These are clear trays that are placed on the mouth in order to straighten them. They are removable so you can also eat or play sports as you normally would without the fear they will suddenly slip off and cause you embarrassment!

How do I know what treatment is right for me?

The simplest way to find out if a treatment is right for you is to talk to the expert directly. You can ask them any questions regarding how the treatment will work and equally an expert can look at your oral health and offer recommendations appropriate to your personal needs.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Essex

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

The word cosmetic indicates something being made to look better. While some may associate the word with vanity it is often something that helps people feel more self confident. With the right cosmetic dental treatments in Essex you can improve your smile and get the self confidence that comes with it!

What types of treatments are available?

Below are a few examples of cosmetic dental treatments available-

  • Cosmetic braces- Often associated with children and teenagers it is easy to forget that these are not designed to be tools of social awkwardness! Braces are useful in that they realign the teeth, creating a more even looking smile.
  • Teeth whitening- People are sometimes nervous about this kind of treatment as they believe it will look fake. However experienced cosmetic dentists can gradually improve the shading of teeth to make them look brighter and at the same time create a look that is subtle and natural.
  • Dental implants- If you have a tooth missing this can fill the gap. Titanium implants can be cleaned in pretty much the same way as normal teeth.
  • Tooth contouring- This is used to smooth over overly pointy teeth in order to create a more consistent looking mouth shape.
  • Snap On Smile- This is a thin resin placed over the teeth, ideal for stained, chipped or missing teeth. It is ideal for people nervous about going to the dentist as it does not require any drilling!

Can I still get a regular dental checkup at a cosmetic dentist?

Yes you can! A cosmetic dentist often uses X-rays and scans to check your oral health. This then makes it easier while doing a deep clean to pinpoint what areas require the most cleaning to ensure the best possible job. They can also offer advice on preventative health measures to ensure you keep your teeth clean between appointments!

Can anyone get cosmetic dental treatments?

There are some restrictions for example some adult braces may not be suitable for children under the age of 9. You may also be unable to get some treatments if you are a persistent smoker or you have particularly poor oral health.

All of these issues can be discussed during an initial consultation with the cosmetic dentist. If you have any questions or concerns it is worth getting in contact now.

You can get Same Day Dentistry in Essex

Monday, May 13th, 2013

There are a number of things that put people off going to the dentist. Some people are nervous of drills, others just find the waiting before treatment worrying. One of the biggest concerns is the amount of time it takes to get a treatment. With Same Day Dentistry in Essex you can enjoy the benefit of cosmetic dental treatment while still being able to carry on with your day.

What treatments can be done in one day?

You would be surprised what can be done in the space of a day. Technology has advanced to such an extent that some treatments that would previously have taken several operations now only require one. Below are a few examples of treatments that can be done on the same day.

  • Tooth contouring- If you have uneven teeth this is a good way of smoothing them out. The good thing about this process is that you can clear out the chips or overly pointy teeth that may stick out. In most cases this can be done in a single visit!
  • Implants- It is possible to get some same day implants. The reason this can be done quicker is due to more advanced techniques.
  • Professional cleaning- It is important to visit the dentist at least once every six months. As well as cosmetic treatments we can also offer advice on dental hygiene and deep cleaning to ensure optimum oral health.

Surely doing it quicker results in loss of quality?

It is easy to be cynical and suggest that being able to do treatments quickly is as a result of cutting corners. With improved technology and more advanced techniques you can be sure that you are getting the treatment you need in the quickest possible time!

Will it be more expensive?

In simple terms no. With a lot of cosmetic dental treatments the major expense comes from having to return for numerous checkups and appointments. A lot of same day treatments are guaranteed to not require this so you can leave the dentist confident that you will not have to come back until your next checkup!

I get nervous before I go to the dentist. Is there anything you can do to help?

For a lot of people the fear before going to the dentist is often a lot worse than the procedure itself. Dentists are often happy to discuss their work with you and will work hard to demystify the process and keep you informed. This is why it is often a good idea to book a consultation before you even consider a treatment so you can prepare yourself mentally and get over any nervousness.
