A lot of people think to themselves “I wish I could look like my favourite movie star”. Inevitably the things they are attracted to are their facial features. However you do not need to be a movie star or a millionaire to get cosmetic dental treatments in Essex.
What are cosmetic dental treatments?
In simple terms cosmetic dental treatments are used to improve people’s teeth and facial construction. It is amazing how a treatment can make people feel happier and more self confident. There are a lot of different types of treatment available, depending on what you want/need.
Below are a few examples-
- Teeth whitening- While you can get kits in high street stores these are not as effective as a professional treatment. Furthermore you can be sure that the treatment is safe!
- Teeth contouring- Often done in conjunction with teeth whitening this allows you to have a more even smile as teeth are neatened up to match the other teeth in the mouth.
- Porcelain veneers- These can cover missing, chipped or discoloured teeth.
- Dental implants- A useful replacement for missing teeth.
How long do cosmetic dental treatments take?
Some people may be concerned that a cosmetic treatment will take a long time. However many cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers only take a couple of visits and some can be done in the space of a few hours.
Can I get my teeth cleaned?
You can still get the same level of deep cleaning that you would from a non cosmetic dentist. Indeed many use X rays and scans during an initial consultation so that they can do this more effectively.
I’m not good with pain. How can a dentist help with this?
While all treatments have a small degree of risk for the most part there is usually only a little bit of swelling and brief sensations of pain. Most swelling will go down after a couple of hours while any feelings of pain can often be soothed with typical over the counter pain relief treatments.
What kind of treatment is right for me?
There are a lot of different options available. Everyone is different and what you need depends on your oral health and what the dentist feels is appropriate for you.
The best thing to do is to arrange a meeting. There is no obligation and you can find out more about the options available to you.
