Beautiful white teeth are important for self-confidence, self-esteem and positive mental health and wellbeing. If you have beautiful teeth then you will be inclined to smile more often. This helps to release hormones in your brain that keep you calm, relaxed and feeling good. The more you smile the more positive attention you will receive and this can have a beneficial impact on all aspects of your life. Thanks to advances in cosmetic dental technology, everyone can have a beautiful smile. There is no need to hide your smile behind your hands, rather you can show off your pearly whites sooner rather than later. Speak to your dentist in London today and find out more about undergoing cosmetic dental treatment to achieve a smile makeover for you.
First you need to undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, making sure that they are clean and healthy and free of decay or disease. With poor dental health it may not be beneficial to undergo cosmetic dental treatment, therefore, your dental health issues will need to be addressed prior to any cosmetic treatment. A smile assessment will show your dentist what type of treatments are necessary to improve the appearance of your teeth. They will be able to put together an individual tailored treatment plan for you. This may include a range of dental treatments or it may only require one treatment. The sooner you get started the earlier you can enjoy the results.
If you are looking for a quick transformation of your teeth you may wish to find out about teeth whitening with your dentist. Teeth whitening is a great way to make your teeth appear more beautiful and attractive. You can undergo teeth whitening at the dental practice itself if you are looking for instant results or you can undergo teeth whitening in the comfort of your home and whiten your teeth gradually over a period of two weeks. Both home treatment kits and teeth whitening at the dental practice work using bleaching agents known as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. These gels are applied to the surface of your teeth, if you choose to undergo a home whitening then you will be provided with individually tailored teeth whitening trays into which you insert the gel to wear in your mouth. The bleaching agent breaks down stain molecules on the surface of your teeth slowly and gradually over a period of time. At the dental practice the same bleaching agents are applied to the surface of your teeth, however the process is accelerated by using UV light. Both types of teeth whitening produce excellent results and by speaking to your dental practice you can find out which may be the most suitable for your dental needs.
If you have stubborn stains that cannot be removed by teeth whitening at home or at the dental practice then you may need to look at further options. Composite bonding is a great way to address imperfections on the surface of your teeth or if you are looking for a full smile makeover then you can speak to your dentist and find out about veneers. They will help you decide which is the most suitable form of treatment for you and will put together an individually tailored treatment plan as necessary.
