There was a time when a visit to the dentist was simply a matter of routine maintenance, an MOT and a service for your teeth if you like. A quick check over, perhaps a filling and finally a polish and off you went for another six months. But now things have changed, at the dentist’s at least. Due to some major advances in technology and availability, cosmetic dentistry has helped more people to feel better about their teeth, restoring, and even creating beautiful smiles.
Your Dental Past Is Not Your Future
They may have grown crookedly when you were a child leaving you with crowded, uneven or gappy teeth. Your teeth may also have become stained due to certain drinks and particularly if you are a smoker, they could also be discoloured due to some types of antibiotics. Cosmetic Dentistry offers a range of different solutions to these problems, and many dentists such as One Smile Oral Care in West Malling offer a wide range of products and services to give you the smile of your dreams.
Now you can have your teeth whitened, straightened and even replaced if necessary, so there is no reason to feel that you have to put up with your high-mileage, slightly battered, one less-than-careful owner teeth any longer. There are many reasons why our teeth are often a cause for embarrassment but all of these can be resolved with the help of cosmetic dentistry.
One of the most straight-forward ways to enhance the appearance of your teeth is to have them whitened. This is ideal if you are generally happy with their appearance but want them to look their best for a special event such as your graduation or perhaps your wedding day. There are a number of different products available and your dentist will be able to advise you about these. Although teeth whitening appears to be straightforward, you should be aware that if done incorrectly you can permanently damage your teeth. This is why you should not attempt to carry out this procedure at home without the supervision of a dentist. It is also illegal for anyone who is not a qualified dentist to offer this treatment so you should not be treated by a beautician who offers this service.
