Give yourself something to smile about this year

Posted on January 10, 2018 by Marcus Davitt

Worrying about how your teeth look can be a draining process. Whether you’re too shy to smile in photos or get anxious when talking to people, constantly thinking about your mouth can have a real impact on your day to day life.

While you can’t wave a magic wand to achieve instant results, the good news is that there are now many ways that you can give yourself a smile makeover without spending a fortune. In this article, we’ll look at the various procedures you can invest in to give you the killer smile you deserve.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are shells of tooth coloured material that are bonded over the top of your existing teeth. They can restore a chipped tooth to its former glory, while also improve the shape, colour and overall position of your teeth. 

If they are well looked after, dental veneers are the most effective way of mimicking a natural smile and can last for years, rarely requiring maintenance. Most of the time, dental veneers can be completed in around two visits, so they offer one of the quickest and most effective ways of transforming your smile.

Porcelain crowns

If you’ve got damaged teeth, restoring them with porcelain crowns, tooth coloured fillings and bridges can be an excellent way of rejuvenating your smile. Crowns are often used when tooth decay has destroyed most of your original tooth, or when your tooth has become damaged.

White fillings

If you’re fed up of seeing dark patches in your mouth, or have tooth discolouration from a metal filling, upgrading them to tooth coloured fillings may be for you. Doing this will allow you to upgrade your smile relatively inexpensively, while ensuring that your fillings are using the safest, most up to date material.

Dental bridges

If you’re missing teeth, you might be fed up of your smile looking patchy. Restoring your natural number of teeth with a dental bridge can help fill out your face and make you feel more confident when talking, smiling or opening your mouth. Dental bridges work by bridging gaps created by missing teeth and are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Bridges don’t just improve the look of your smile, they can improve the ability to chew, help maintain the shape of your face, and prevent your other teeth from drifting out of position.

Tooth whitening

Years of tea, coffee, wine and general food stains can make your teeth look darker than they used to. This can have an ageing effect and make you feel self-conscious. Having them whitened or using a professional home whitening kit can take years off your appearance and give a fresh, healthy look.

A smile makeover doesn’t always involve drastic measures. Just investing in one or more simple treatments can transform the way you look and feel. To begin your quest for the perfect smile, call us today on: 01242 259960.
