Just because your teeth may have become a little un-kept of late in the city of Leeds, doesn’t mean to say that they are going to have to stay like that for ever and there has never been a better time to get yourself down to the dentists to ask about some cosmetic dentistry. The first thing you will have to do is to smile so that it is easier to see where things have gone wrong. If your teeth are crooked, you’ll need to get them straightened, if some have gone missing, then get them replaced with a partial denture, a bridge or with a dental implant. If you have a ‘gummy smile’, you can have it laser contoured. Once all of this is dealt with, the dentists can set about tackling tooth decay and gum disease. Now, you can get the cosmetics you want in earnest, and that’s to get your teeth looking sparkling and white. If your teeth have suffered signs of ageing, dental veneers or cosmetic bonding would be your best bet here to get your smile back on track. However, if your teeth are already in a good place, then you can turn to teeth whitening: you can get products over the counter so that you can do things yourself, or you can pop down to your dentist for some of the latest laser bleaching.

Do you get the feeling that you are starting to retire into yourself because of the state of your teeth? Well it really needn’t be like this because there is some amazing cosmetic dentistry going on inLeedsright now that will launch you back into the ball game. The first thing you have to do is take stock of the state of your teeth before embarking on treatments that you may not need, so consult with your dentist before you make knee-jerk decisions. For instance, if your teeth are in perfectly good condition, they can quite easily look pretty again by brushing with toothpastes that whitens over time, or take a quick painless laser whitening treatment- easy: if misshapen, you will need a bit of alignment done as well. But not so easy if the teeth look damaged, battle weary and dare it be said, old. Cosmetic bonding or veneers are the way to go here because they can cover up the most awful looking teeth and turn you smile into something spectacular. You can also get your missing teeth replaced with a bridge or an implant that are not only healthy for your mouth but will also keep that smile going. Every person is different and every person needs advice about this sort of stuff, so just sit down and have a chat with the person who knows best- your dentist.
One of the greatest things that has come out of the dental revolution that has swept across Central Leeds over the past 30 years, is choice. In the past, we put a hell of a lot of trust into our dentists, and for a lot of people who had limited financial resources, the choices behind the treatments were limited to what the NHS could offer. But dental treatments have gone through a complete make-over, thanks largely to dental procedures that have filtered through to Britain from the USA, and the advancements in technology; with it has come a shift in the dentist/patient relationships too. With so many options available to patients these days and the fact that most dentists offer as much as they can to keep up with trends, prices of treatments have fallen dramatically, and this has given back to the patient the luxury to choose where and when they get the treatments they require. Any dentist can offer the basic treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy, but the demands of society to look our best at all times has seen this surge in cosmetics. Television and magazines have also caused an incredible demand for the latest treatments available in cosmetic dentistry and most dental surgeries offer the ‘in’ procedures to smarten up your teeth. But though all these treatments are cheap, accessible and just around the corner, your dentist, that has nurtured you through those years of growing up, knows your teeth as well as you do, so before you jump in for the latest treatments, a consultation should point you in the best direction for the best treatments around.
