Cosmetic Dentistry Essex



Cosmetic dentistry Essex

Cosmetic can refer to a lot of things. It can refer to airbrushing photos, face creams that fight ageing or operations to lift and tuck certain areas. What does not tend to get associated with is something that can benefit your health as well as your appearance and self confidence. However this is something that Cosmetic dentistry Essex can offer.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

As the name suggests this is a procedure on the teeth that improves their appearance. For example braces are used by children and adults in order to make teeth straighter. Equally implants can be used to fill gaps where broken or missing teeth would be and whitening is often used to make teeth appear….well, whiter!

What makes a cosmetic dentist different from a regular dentist?

A cosmetic dentist can still offer advice on maintaining good oral health. Indeed in some cases this can affect what treatments are available. For example some treatments may not be available if you smoke.

The main difference is that a cosmetic dentist is trained in specific cosmetic procedures such as whitening. While you can get home whitening kits it is best to use the services of a professional, both to ensure that they are doing safely and to get the best possible results.

Another aspect is the aesthetic quality, something the word “cosmetic” would suggest. Some cosmetic dentists work in effect like designers while others do the technical work. Some have an artistic background, ensuring that you get the best possible look from your dental work!

What kind of treatments do cosmetic dentists offer?

Treatments include (but are not limited to)

Porcelain veneers
Braces (Child and adult)

How can I be sure that I have a good cosmetic dentist?

There are numerous things you can ask for in order to tell if they are good-

Proof of experience- Not just qualifications but experience and the amount of successful procedures they have worked on
Before and after photos- Look carefully to see how authentic they look.
What kind of testimonials are available? Can you talk directly to other patients?
Look at the kind of equipment they have and make sure they have been trained to use it.
With regard to specialist treatments ask about the level of experience of the people doing those treatments (for example a ceramicist works on porcelain veneers).
Do they offer a range of options? Ideally during a consultation they ought to explain all the options available to you.

The best thing to do is contact people like Dr Basrai directly so that you can talk to them about how you want to improve your smile. Remember the right cosmetic dentist can offer Cosmetic Dentistry Essex that works for you!
