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.
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!
