New Year New Smile?
Incredible as it might seem, this year is nearly at an end and it will soon be the party season once again. The New Year is a great time to think about new resolutions, perhaps for a smile makeover? These days an increasing number of people are using cosmetic dentistry in Downham Market to help improve their smile and often the solution may be more straightforward than you’d imagine. There are a number of techniques that can help the overall appearance of your teeth and some may also help to improve your dental health, making treatment even more worthwhile.
Treatments to Consider
Our cosmetic dental services include white fillings and porcelain inlays and onlays, beautiful porcelain veneers and of course teeth whitening that can be carried out in our dental practice or in the comfort of your own home using our customised home whitening kits. Teeth whitening can be a great option if you are looking for quick results before the end of the year, particularly when used in combination with dental bonding which is a process to mend any small chips or cracks in your teeth and that can also be used to slightly change the shape of a tooth. We also have a comprehensive range of reconstructive treatments that can be really useful if you are missing one or more teeth.
Replacing Any Teeth That Might Be Missing
For example, we can provide beautifully lifelike porcelain bridges to replace one or more missing teeth in the same area of your mouth. A porcelain bridge is held in position by crowns that fit over the teeth adjacent to the gap and these crowns are attached to the replacement teeth that will fill in the gap. Each replacement tooth is called a pontic. We can even construct these bridges entirely from porcelain so they don’t contain any metal whatsoever. This can be an advantage when considering a cosmetic smile makeover as an all ceramic bridge will provide the highest quality and best aesthetic results.
Another option is to consider dental implants in Downham Market. A dental implant uses the very latest technology to replace a missing tooth and it can provide extremely long-lasting results. This is because an implant very closely replicates a natural tooth root, consisting of a titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone during a very small surgical procedure. This post is used to securely hold a replacement tooth that may be a crown, bridge or even a denture. It’s a great treatment to consider if you have a big event coming up next year, perhaps a wedding or a special birthday and you’re thinking about planning ahead as dental implants can take several months to complete.
The possibilities for creating a brand-new smile are huge and while it may seem confusing, it’s worthwhile remembering our cosmetic dentist in Downham Market can work with you to help you decide which treatments you’d most like helping you achieve the type of results you really desire.
