Cosmetic dentist in Essex
You should never underestimate the power of a smile. It can help build trust, start conversations and make people feel comfortable. In turn this can make you feel confident and this positive feeling can feed into your daily life. And a good cosmetic dentist in Essex can help with this.
What is a cosmetic dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry is described as “a branch of dentistry that deals with the appearance of teeth”. On the basic level this makes the profession sound superficial, as if it purely deals with the aesthetic quality of the teeth.
Cosmetic dentists also deal with the oral health aspect as well. After all if you don’t look after your teeth this will harm the aesthetic qualities of your teeth. In case you’re not aware various things can affect the visual quality of your teeth-
Poor oral hygiene
Stains caused by food and drink
Stains caused by persistent smoking
How does cosmetic dentistry benefit me?
The problem is that when people hear the word “cosmetic” they associate it with something frivolous or unnecessary. This is not necessarily the case. Someone who looks in the mirror and sees a missing tooth can often feel awkward in social situations. Getting an implant can allow you to get a complete smile again and feel better.
What kind of treatments are available?
Braces- These straighten teeth. People often think of “train track” metal in their mouth but recent developments in the technology have meant they are much less conspicuous than earlier models.
Dentures- As with braces models of these have become more advanced allowing for a more natural look.
Veneers- Porcelain and resin veneers improve the look of teeth.
Implants- Using an implant allows you to replace a tooth. It can be cleaned just like regular teeth.
Whitening- Again this is something that can be misunderstood. Handled properly this can look very natural and improve a smile without a blatantly obvious bleached look.
How do I make sure I get a good one?
It is very simple- talk to them! A good one will be happy to discuss their training and qualifications. Ideally they should also be interested in you and how their skills can contribute to improving your oral health and the aesthetic qualities of your teeth.
It is also a good idea to ask for testimonials so you can talk with people who have used their services and see if they are satisfied with the work they had done.
In short a good cosmetic dentist in Essex can make a big difference to the quality and health of your smile and it is worth getting in touch now to see what they can do for you!
