The Benefit Of Cosmetic Dental In Essex

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

There is often the thought that cosmetic dental treatments are something exclusive. It sounds like something only available to movie stars and celebrities. However you do not necessarily have to be a superstar to afford cosmetic dental in Essex!

How does cosmetic dentistry differ from normal dentistry?

The crucial thing to realise is that the professionals who do cosmetic dental treatments do the same type of examinations as a “normal” dentist. It is not just about making people look good they still work hard to ensure that anyone getting a treatment can maintain effective oral health.

 

 

What type of treatments are available?

You have probably heard of teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. These are ideal in making teeth look whiter and more presentable. What you may not know is that adult braces can be used to reshape the mouth while dental implants can be used to fill in missing teeth and prevent mouth muscles from sagging.

Often a combination of treatments may yield the most effective results and it is worth talking with the cosmetic dentist to see what will work best for you in the long term.

I get nervous going to the dentist. How can I get over this?

Fear of the dentist is a common thing and the person who understands this most is…the dentist!

Simply put if you are worried then talk to them and they will tell you about how the treatments will work, their qualifications and so forth. An initial consultation is your opportunity to find out more and get the information you need to make the right choice.

Can I get any treatment?

Some treatments will be restricted in terms of age and oral health. Lifestyle choices can also have an effect such as smoking (especially since smoking discolours the teeth and therefore will negate treatments designed to whiten the teeth).

While budget may be an issue you need to consider long term costs (for example paying for adhesives for dentures, more visits when getting cheaper adult braces etc).

I’m not sure if I want to pay for treatment. Can I talk to them first?

A professional cosmetic dentist should not pressure you or make you feel obliged to get treatment. A free initial consultation allows the dentist to give you advice and make recommendations but it is still your choice. This consultation also allows the dentist to look at you and make recommendations based on your individual circumstances.

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.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Are you looking to improve your appearance? When many of us think of cosmetic improvements, traditional cosmetic surgery procedures, like breast enlargements, facelifts, and liposuction, often come to mind. With that said, those are not the only types of cosmetic surgical procedures you can undergo. If you are looking to improve your smile, namely by way of your teeth, you may want to visit a cosmetic dentist.

As nice as it is to hear that there is such a thing as a cosmetic dentist, who specializes in the appearance of teeth, not just the health of them, you may be looking for more information. One of the most common questions asked concerns procedures. Many wonder what type of cosmetic dentistry procedures are available to them. The good news is that there are quite a few, some of which are briefly highlighted below.

A gum lift is a common cosmetic surgery that is performed by cosmetic dentists. Although most individuals want to change the appearance of their teeth, the teeth aren’t always the main problem. If you have uneven or excess gums, your teeth may look uneven and possibly even crooked. If that is the case, a gum lift is advised. During the cosmetic surgical procedure, your excess gum will be removed, giving you an even, flawless smile.

Veneers are another common cosmetic dentistry procedure that is performed. In fact, veneers are increasing in popularity. They are designed for those who have imperfections with their teeth. These imperfections often include cracked teeth, crooked teeth, or teeth with a significant amount of staining. As for how the procedure works, each tooth will be resized and reshaped. Then, a mold will be taken of the “new,” tooth. The dentist’s laboratory will then create a custom mold, which will be bonded to your reshaped tooth. Although veneers are a great way to cut down the cost of dental work, please know that they are permanent and that the procedures cannot be reversed.

Another common cosmetic surgical procedure that is performed by qualified dentists is that of dental implants. Do you have a missing tooth or a tooth that needs to be pulled? If you do, dentures may not be a viable option, especially if the rest of your teeth are in healthy shape. If that is the case, dental implants are advised. With dental implants, an artificial tooth is used. That artificial tooth is securely anchored into the jaw bone or the gums. As with veneers, dental implants look and feel just like real teeth. The above mentioned cosmetic dental procedures are those that can also be considered surgical procedures. It is also important to know that there are additional procedures performed by cosmetic dentists. These procedures are often less invasive and they are typically more affordable. One of those procedures is that of teeth whitening. A professional teeth whitening procedure can reduce stains that are due to coffee, smoking, and aging.

Regardless of how much we all care for our teeth, many of us develop cavities. If you do, the common choice of dentists is that of metal fillings. Ask a cosmetic dentist, however, and they will have a different view. If you are looking to keep your smile and your mouth attractive, you should examine tooth colored fillings. A cosmetic dentist can use a colored coded chart to create the perfect match. Before that is done, however, you may also want to consider undergoing a teeth whitening procedure.

As you can see, you have a number of different options when looking to improve both the health and appearance of your teeth. In fact, the above mentioned procedures are just a few of your many options. You should schedule a consultation appoint with a local, qualified cosmetic dentist to develop an appropriate plan of action. As a reminder, a healthy, beautiful smile can do you wonders. For starters, you will likely notice a significant improvement in your self-esteem and self-confidence.
