Different Types Of Cosmetic Dental Treatment Essex

There are numerous reasons why people get cosmetic dental treatment Essex

  • To improve the look of their smile and increase self confidence
  • If you chip or lose a tooth in an accident you can cover it up
  • Correct any misalignment in your mouth, prevent sagging facial muscles and other long term oral health issues
  • Cosmetic treatments can also be done as a lower risk alternative to cosmetic surgery

Treatments available

  • Teeth whitening- A professional tooth whitening service is better than a home kit for a number of reasons. The first is that a professional can apply the whitening liquids more effectively than someone trying to do it themselves. Furthermore you can be sure that what they use is safe as what you order online may or may not be approved. It is better to pay a bit more to ensure good oral health as well as whiter teeth!
  • Adult braces and cosmetic dentures- These help to straighten out teeth and correct any misalignments. If you are worried about people noticing your “train tracks” there are invisible brands that people can only see if they look close up!
  • Dental implants- Ideal for people who have chipped or missing teeth. An implant will usually be made of titanium and with proper care are guaranteed to stay in your mouth for 15-20 years.
  • Porcelain veneers- These wafer thin veneers are best for covering up stained, missing or chipped teeth. Although they are thin don’t worry as they will be bonded to your teeth.
  • Dermal fillers- These add hydration to the skin, reducing dryness of the skin as well as lines and wrinkles.



The right treatment for you

An experienced cosmetic dentist will be able to talk with you and discuss the options available to you. Everyone is different and some treatments may depend on your current oral health (for example the effect of teeth whitening is cancelled out if you smoke and discolour your teeth!)

The initial consultation with the cosmetic dentist is a good time to discuss any issues you may have. Some people can feel nervous about seeing a dentist and this is often a good time to put any fears to rest. You can also use this time to find out how experienced they are and how long the treatment will take.

Choosing Cosmetic Dental Treatments In Essex

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?
