Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide range of practices designed to improve the look of your smile and the function of your mouth. Having a smile with which you can feel confident and proud is just as important as having a fully functioning set of teeth and a healthy mouth. These two things are often interlinked and cosmetic dentistry can ensure that both are fully realised.
There are many reasons why you might feel that you require some cosmetic dentistry work. If you have lost a tooth or teeth then you might with to have some porcelain crowns installed by your dentist. These lightweight, durable and realistic replacement teeth can be treated just like your normal teeth, giving you back functionality and an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Cosmetic dentistry also encompasses processes such as teeth whitening. It is highly likely that your teeth will be subject to some degree of staining in your lifetime or at the very least their natural colour will fade. Dentists can offer treatments or at-home packages for you to administer yourself.
Some of these techniques can be offered in conjunction with one another, giving patients the chance to have a ‘smile makeover’ if they are faced with multiple issues to do with their oral health and appearance. Technological advances have made some of these processes incredibly fast but without the increases in price which one might expect.
For example, CEREC techniques allow dentists to take digital, 3D images of teeth and send them to an online milling machine. This machine constructs porcelain veneers and crowns in just over five minutes, ready to be fitted by your dentist.
