The first glimpses of spring will soon appear and suddenly our thoughts will turn to spring/summer wardrobes, booking holidays and organising summer events. But many of us will also be thinking about making changes to our appearance. In the summer months, many people make more effort with their appearance, as they usually have more occasions to attend, such as birthday parties, weddings and summer barbeques and want to feel their best. For an increasing number of people, spring is also a great time of year to think about having treatment to make their smile look better.
Research has consistently shown that a nice smile is one of the key features people look for in a future partner and studies have also linked a healthy, attractive smile to a happy personal life and successful career. There are many different things you can do to make your smile look more attractive, from spending a few extra minutes every day cleaning your teeth to spending thousands of pounds on cosmetic dental treatments.
For many people, spending money on dental treatments is a sure-fire way to feel and look better. Treatments such as invisible braces, veneers and tooth whitening treatments have become extremely popular in recent years, especially as the Hollywood style smile has become so popular with celebrities.
For those on a budget or who are maybe slightly more fearful of cosmetic treatments, a simple scale and polish may do the trick. Cleaning treatments are much more intensive than manual brushing and produce a unique ‘dentist clean’ finish. A professional cleaning treatment will leave your teeth feeling smooth and looking much more radiant in perfect time for spring.

What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that is concerned with aesthetics. Cosmetic treatments are designed to improve the look of the smile and include veneers, tooth whitening, cosmetic bonding, gum reshaping and smile makeovers. We can also offer cosmetic braces, which straighten the teeth at the same time as providing discreet aesthetics to give you greater confidence and take the hassle and stress out of orthodontic treatment.
Cosmetic dental treatments vary in terms of treatment duration and cost. Some treatments can be completed in less than an hour, while others take months and fees vary hugely.
For patients who want a complete transformation for their smile, smile makeovers may be an option. Makeovers use different treatments to create dream smiles and they are tailored to the individual patient.
The advantages of cosmetic dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry makes the smile look great, but it can also work wonders for confidence and have a significant impact on your overall appearance. Many people who choose to have cosmetic dentistry make this decision because they are self-conscious about the appearance of their smile and treatment can make a huge difference to self-esteem, as well as the look of the teeth.
