Clifton Dental explains the choices with Cosmetic Dentistry in Swindon

They say in Swindon ‘there’s more than one way to skin a cat’ and pretty much, that phrase could be said about the amount of amazing cosmetic procedures around to patch up your mouth as well. Cosmetic dentistry is big business and rightly so: it is a honed profession offering lots of choices that will give you that Hollywood glitz. Taking into account that your teeth may already be in good shape, all you may require is some bleaching and this can either be done at home by you using pens brushes, bleaching strips or a complete bleaching kit, or by your dentist, who can blast your teeth white with the latest laser treatments. This however will not cover up stuff like cracking in the enamel, chipped teeth or gaps: for this you need to turn to bonding or veneers to do the job. Tooth replacement has also got easier over the years: dental implants with crowns, bridges or partial dentures are a great way of plugging up the gaps and making your smile complete once more. But this would be rather futile if you are getting on in years, having the work done and then having wrinkly old lips framing your smile. Fortunately, your dentist can inject a bit of botox into them and smooth out signs of ageing. It’s a great time for you and cosmetic dentistry and if you would like to know more, you can contact Clifton Dental in Bristol.

Every now and then, an industry goes through massive technological changes and that is what has happened with the world of dentistry in the past twenty years. The introduction of computers, digital imaging and the laser has transformed the way treatments are done and has broadened the and of course, cosmetic dentistry has taken advantage of this and now there is a treatment for every condition and everybody. Dentists today can start from the outside and then work their way in to give you the complete works. The can inject botox and dermal fillers into the lips to solve the problems of wrinkling and once that is done, they can get to work in earnest on the inside. Tooth loss can be rectified by using a bridge, an implant along with crowns or some form of dentures. Cracks and gaps in your teeth, wear and tear and receding gums can be covered up with veneers or a little dental bonding. And if you have been born with a ‘gummy’ smile, laser surgery can have you smiling again in under the hour. All of these treatments are re-constructive cosmetic dentistry. However, if your teeth are youthful, healthy and are just in need of a boost, teeth’s whitening is the way forward either with laser bleaching at the dentists or with products you can buy and use at home.  

Patients from Swindon opt for cosmetic dentistry at Clifton Dental Studio

When people in Swindon watch TV shows like Embarrassing Bodies or Extreme Makeover, they are introduced to a whole new world of cosmetic dentistry they never knew existed. The increase in media attention on the importance of a nice smile has meant that here at Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol, there has been a huge upsurge in the inquiries about available procedures. In the past, people associated such procedures and techniques with celebrities and the royal family but now, with prices lower and increased interest, far more people are viewing it as something worth spending a few quid on. Cosmetic dentistry encompasses any dental procedure that improves the overall look of your smile. While such procedures are more widespread the terminology still links to its heritage with the rich and famous. For example, a smile improvement is often known as a smile makeover and particularly dazzling versions are often called Hollywood smiles or even a wedding smile. Kate Middleton was reported to have had work done on her smile before marrying Prince William and her perfectly aligned white smile was well documented on the big day. Having a beautiful smile can have a massive effect on an individual’s self-confidence, self-esteem and personal relationships. Many people avoid smiling with their mouth open or feel embarrassed when they laugh due to discolouration of their teeth. Having strong self-confidence is one of the most important things in your life and should not be underestimated. It will help you in job interviews, meeting a potential partner, giving presentations and many other day to day scenarios in your life. The wide variety of procedures and a big range of prices means that there is far more choice out there for consumers. It’s not just for stars. You too can have the smile of your dreams.

There is no need to get expensive restoration work done when you don’t need it so between you and your dentist, you can come up with treatments that are sympathetic to your mouth whilst improving your look no-end. You may not need any major work done if your teeth are in pretty good shape- teeth whitening may be all that you need in order to get your teeth back into line. If however they have suffered the ravishes of time and have a few issues going on, it may just be better to cover them up with some form of veneer to hide the imperfections away. Of course, that depends on having teeth in your mouth in the first place- tooth loss may be a shocker but it is easy to solve; you can opt for a dental bridge, a dental implant or even a partial denture- all will replace the gaps in your mouth quite admirably and give you back your smile.

The incredible world of cosmetic dentistry available at Bristol dentists

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any kind of dentistry that is not required for health reasons but solely to improve the aesthetic appearance of the teeth. It is the fastest growing branch of dentistry as more and more emphasis is placed on the importance of having a great smile and healthy looking teeth. Until about thirty of forty years ago, the concept of cosmetic dentistry barely existed as dentistry was only for functional purposes, but pioneering techniques by dentists in the US, the natural home of cosmetic dentistry, expanded the possibilities of dental treatment. Now, if you walk into any dentist surgery in the UK you will be able to receive a whole array of amazing and complex cosmetic dentistry treatments. There is not a set of teeth in the whole world that cannot be improved by a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures and the possibilities are almost endless. Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Bristol dentists are teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. At virtually opposite ends of the price scale, these two treatments are popular because of the amazing results that are achievable. Both can radically improve the condition and appearance of the teeth, making the smile healthier and the patient look younger. Other treatments include gum contouring to even the size and shape of the teeth and dental bonding, which can be used in a number of ways. Another area of cosmetic dentistry that has expanded rapidly in recent years is the orthodontic straightener. These are different from braces in the sense that they are removable and much faster acting. They tend to concentrate more on the appearance of the front teeth that are visible when you smile. Some orthodontic straighteners such as the Inman aligner work in as little as six weeks, although the average treatment time is shorter.

Simple cosmetic bonding from Gloucester dentist provides stunning results

There are many extremely complex and visually stunning cosmetic dentistry procedures that can be used to restore the appearance of the teeth. But just like most things in life, it is the simple solution that is usually the best. Treatments such as dental veneers and porcelain crowns can have stunning effects on the teeth and completely change the appearance of a smile, but it even these depend upon the old faithful cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding is made from a composite resin and is very durable when set hard. The uses for cosmetic bonding are varied and manifold and it plays a part in almost all cosmetic treatments. In fact, cosmetic bonding is so important in modern dentistry there are even dentists who specialise solely in its use. Before use, the Gloucester dentist will prepare the bonding by mixing it to the right consistency and colour to match the other teeth. They will then prepare the tooth that requires the bonding by etching it and making the surface rough so that the bonding will grip firm. It is then skilfully applied and moulded into the desired shape. The intense heat of a dental laser is then used to make the bonding solid. The most common uses for bonding are as material for fillings (replacing the old controversial silver amalgam fillings), as a form of teeth whitening by covering areas of discolouration with thin applications and also to repair chipped and worn tooth enamel to restore its shape. The other major bonus of using composite bonding is that it is very affordable when compared to other treatments such as porcelain veneers and crowns. Durable and effective, dental bonding is the unsung hero of the dental world but could be just the treatment you are looking for to improve the appearance of your smile.

Swindon dentist restores smile and confidence with cosmetic dentistry

There are many types of cosmetic dentistry available for patients of all budgets and with all conditions of teeth. Over the last twenty years technology has allowed an amazing improvement in the nature of cosmetic dental treatments to the point that there are now very few patients who could not benefit greatly from a cosmetic treatment. This improvement in treatment has been echoed by a reduction in price. As many treatments are now more easily performed, they are also more cost-effective. This has opened up the world of cosmetic dentistry to many more patients. Cosmetic dentistry has also benefited from increased exposure on the many and multifarious television makeover shows, which advertise just exactly what kind of level of improvement is possible. One of the most popular and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments is tooth whitening. This involves placing a special whitening gel in contact with the enamel, to bleach any patches of discolouration or staining. This can yield stunning results with teeth being made up to ten shades whiter. With treatments starting from as little as sixty pounds, there is now every reason to ask your Swindon dentist about teeth whitening. Other cosmetic dental procedures include ceramic restoration such as veneers and crowns. These can improve the appearance of stained, misaligned and worn teeth helping to improve the appearance of your smile. Although slightly more expensive than some other treatments, they are also capable of transforming the appearance of teeth in as little as one appointment. Ask your dentist at your next check up about which of the cosmetic treatments would be most suitable for your teeth. They will also be able to give you a clearer indication of the price for each individual procedure.
