Which aspects of cosmetic dentistry can improve my smile?
If you’re feeling unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it can affect your self-confidence and your ability to smile in public. If you recognise any of these feelings, it’s good to know that there is something you can do about it. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing your teeth so that you can show off your naturally beautiful smile.
Do you have stained teeth? Teeth whitening can restore their natural whiteness and make you feel proud to show off your smile. Using bleaching trays containing a mixture of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, your dentist in Kent will place this combination into dental trays which you then wear on your teeth.
After completing the first cycle in the dental practice, you will be given a home kit. You will then be able to whiten your teeth and have complete control over the level of whiteness that you’re looking for. It can take around 2-4 days to see a difference and two weeks to get a bright white smile.
If your teeth are chipped or broken, porcelain veneers are a good option. Veneers are thin porcelain slices which are applied to the surface of a tooth, a bit like a false fingernail fits a nail. They are bonded onto your teeth and the advantage is that it can make your teeth look both healthy and natural.
Do you have silver fillings which are ruining the appearance of your smile? It’s now possible to have metallic amalgam fillings removed and replaced with white composite instead. This mimics the appearance of your natural teeth, while restoring your tooth and keeping it fully functional.
