Open any magazine or newspaper today and you will be bombarded with images of people with ice white, ruler straight smiles. It should come as no surprise that the media image of the perfect smile has caused people to feel self-conscious about their own smiles.
Feeling unconfident when smiling can cause people to withdraw from social interactions and this can have a huge impact on their overall well-being.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
We have all heard of a scale and polish or teeth whitening, these are some of the more well known and popular forms of cosmetic work that people have completed on their teeth.
There are more options available to help you get that gleaming, red-carpet-ready smile and our cosmetic dentists in Bromley can help you obtain whatever look you desire.
Used if your teeth are stained or chipped, porcelain veneers don’t require a major procedure and will be colour matched to the surrounding teeth. If you have any small gaps, veneers can also be used to close them, giving your teeth a more even look, really boosting your smile.
If you need a filling but want to go in a more aesthetically pleasing direction, or if it is on one of your front teeth, white fillings are a great way to solve both problems as they, like veneers, are colour matched to the surrounding teeth.
As the name suggests, teeth whitening is used to whiten your teeth by either a few shades or multiple shades.
Our cosmetic dentists in Bromley will be able to advise you on which type of whitening may be best for you, depending on your budget, the current shade of your teeth, and the final shade you wish to achieve.
We can offer you a range of different options. One of these is power whitening, when your teeth are whitened at our surgery with a specialised gel and lamp to activate the bleaching process. Alternatively, we are also able to offer, as a separate or combined service with the power whitening, a treatment called home whitening.
With this option, we custom make a lightweight plastic tray and provide you with a whitening gel to place into the tray. We usually advise you to wear this tray at night or a few hours each day to obtain the best effect. When using home whitening, you will see a noticeable difference in 2 weeks, whereas with the power whitening the results are visible straight away.
As the name suggests, these braces have been designed over decades to not only have a minimal appearance, but also to gently alter your teeth into a new position gradually. This is an effective long-term option to not only straighten your teeth, but also to correct your bite alignment.
Whatever you want to gain from having a cosmetic dental procedure, we are confident that cosmetic dentists in Bromley will be able to help.
