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.
