Cosmetic dentistry is the term used to describe a long list of dental care procedures that are designed to basically improve your smile – even if you weren’t blessed with a ‘colgate’ smile.
The most common problems that are corrected through this form of dentistry include repairs to teeth as well as improving their appearance.
Teeth Whitening is Just the Beginning
The most effective way to improve the appearance of teeth is through teeth whitening. This procedure involves a method of bleaching teeth to remove stains and discolouration often resulting from smoking, drinking too many cups of tea or coffee or drinking too much red wine.
Teeth whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry which is best performed in the dental clinic, under the watchful eye of your local dentist, using quality teeth whitening gels. But should you not wish to have the procedure carried out by your Dentist Forster Dental Centre, the other choice when it comes to having whiter teeth, is an at home teeth whitening kit.
Either way, be sure to use one purchased through Dr Oxenbould Forster Dental Centre so you can be assured that the kit will not cause any damage to your teeth or gums like some cheaper poorer quality kits can. The use of inferior quality gels, although may be cheaper only end up doing a poor job or even worse cause more damage than do you any good!
Straightening Teeth and Other Repairs
Another popular form of cosmetic dentistry is through straightening teeth. Wire braces used to be the normal method used to correct crooked teeth but with the invention of invisalign clear braces or aligners they adjust crooked teeth in such a way that they realign your smile discreetly, without others having to know.
A clear mold of your teeth is used to create this orthodontic device and a computer designs the invisalign mouth pieces to be worn during the straightening teeth process. They work exactly the same way wire braces do, gently nudging your teeth back into shape, but the biggest difference of all is that nobody knows and you do not need to where rubber bands or have metal braces attached to your teeth.
Additional Types of Cosmetic Dental Repairs
In addition to teeth whitening and correcting crooked teeth, there are a number of other repairs that are designed to improve your smile which will also boost your confidence. It is a proven fact that if you are happy with the way your teeth look, you will smile more often and exude a positive outward appearance.
Veneers, caps and crowns are all designed to address various cosmetic dental repairs. This can include fixing a chipped tooth that may have broken while eating something hard or a broken tooth that occurs due to an accident or sporting injury, such situations are easy to correct or replace thanks to cosmetic dentistry.
Even if you are missing teeth or several missing teeth the use of dental implants can restore your smile and correct the problem so you don‘t have to be embarrassed by noticeable gaps when you smile.
