Here at One Smile Oral Care in Kings Hill, cosmetic dentistry is one of the areas we focus on. We offer a range of treatments under our cosmetic banner and they are proving increasingly popular with patients.
Due to advances in technology and materials, cosmetic treatments are more available and affordable than ever. Time was, if you wanted teeth whitening or Invisalign braces, you had to go to the big city. Now every High Street dentist offers this and more.
Whether you are an existing patient or new to us, once we’ve given your teeth a clean bill of health, we can take a look at what cosmetic dentistry in Kings Hill would be right for you. Here’s a quick overview:
These thin porcelain shells cover a range of chips, cracks, gaps and stains. Our cosmetic dentist bonds them to the front of your teeth with dental adhesive. This secures them in place for up to 10 years. Each veneer is custom-made to fit in with your existing teeth, in terms of size, shape and colour.
This fast-acting whitening treatment is great if you have a special occasion coming up or need to look your best in a hurry, for a surprise date or job interview, for example. The procedure takes around an hour in the dentist’s chair. Our cosmetic dentist covers your gums with a shield then paints high concentration whitening gel onto your teeth. This is activated with a UV light then left for an hour, leaving your teeth up to 8 shades whiter.
Do your teeth appear short? They may not be. It could be that you have too much gum showing. Using a laser that seals as it cuts, our cosmetic dentist can shave off excess gum tissue, revealing more of the natural beauty of your teeth.
Braces that focus on straightening the teeth for aesthetic reasons, rather than because of a health condition, are known as cosmetic braces. We use both tooth-coloured fixed braces and Invisalign clear aligners to help you straighten your smile. And while you may not need this for your dental health, enhancing your smile can sure give your self-esteem a boost.
