Discover How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Brighten Your Smile
Are you happy with your smile or are there certain things you’d love to change? The solution might be easier than you think and Downham Market Dental Care has a range of affordable cosmetic dentistry solutions that can greatly improve your smile. Sometimes only subtle changes may be required, but we can also offer comprehensive smile makeovers. We can work with you to custom design a smile that complements and enhances your facial features and will devise a treatment plan that fits into your budget.
Small Changes Can Create a Real Difference
Even small changes can create a noticeable difference to your smile. For example exchanging old and stained fillings or amalgam fillings for nice new white fillings will instantly help to brighten it. At the same time you could be helping to protect your dental health as all fillings need renewing periodically. For larger areas of decay, we can create beautiful inlays and onlays that are made from the very latest porcelains and which will blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.
Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers Can Create Stunning Smiles
If you are looking for something slightly more dramatic then consider teeth whitening. Our treatments are safe and affordable and extremely effective. It can be an excellent solution if your teeth have external stains, perhaps from drinking too much red wine, tea or coffee or from smoking. All our treatments are customised to take into account your initial tooth colour, any tooth sensitivity and the reason for your tooth staining.
We offer two different options for whitening your teeth. Your first choice is to have your teeth whitened in our dental surgery. This can take as little as an hour and produces stunning results. It can be ideal if you want to whiten quickly, perhaps in time for a holiday or another special event. Otherwise we can provide you with a customised whitening kit to use at home. This includes mouth trays that are specially made to fit over your teeth. We will supply the correct strength of whitening gel and will show you how much to use in the trays. You simply wear the trays for a few hours each day or even overnight. You’ll gradually see your teeth whiten over the course of a couple of weeks. If you want to top up the results a bit later on then just ask us for more whitening gel as the trays can be reused.
Porcelain veneers consist of very thin slips of porcelain and are great for hiding teeth that are too badly stained to respond to whitening or which are perhaps a bit chipped or too short, or even a less than perfect shape. We can also close up or minimise small spaces in between teeth with porcelain veneers. If you have a tooth that is slightly out of alignment then a veneer can sometimes be used to bring it back into line. This procedure can work extremely well in conjunction with tooth whitening as often we will only need to use a few veneers to create a beautiful smile.
