Looking for a Cosmetic Dentist in the UK- Powered By Docstoc
					Cosmetic dentistry is a relatively new phenomenon in the UK. The idea of having a
dazzling white smile used to be something only afforded by the rich and famous,
however as prices have come down more and more people are turning their thoughts
to cosmetic dentistry. The technological advancements in the area of cosmetic
dentistry have been vast over the past few years and now there are a large number of
procedures available for anyone to take advantage of. This article provides
information about what treatments are available and what is involved in each.
  One of the most popular treatments in the UK is straightforward tooth whitening. It
is very easy for teeth to become stained over the years, especially if you are a red
wine drinker, coffee lover or smoker. Now there are effective treatments available for
removing the discolouration. Your teeth can be brought back to their pearly white
appearance of youth with tooth whitening. There are products available over the
counter that claim to do the job well, however it is always better to seek advice from
your dentist before using these. Over the counter products can strip the teeth of their
enamel and leave the teeth extremely sensitive too. Having it professionally done will
not only make sure the job is done better but you have peace of mind that your teeth
are not being damaged in the long term.
  Porcelain veneers are another procedure that can provide you with a perfect set of
teeth. This procedure involves placing a porcelain covering on every tooth that is
strong and of course white and straight. If you suffer from teeth that are not very
straight or are severely discoloured then this might be a good solution for you. There
are a few considerations to make however before having this done. Although the
procedure sounds simple enough, it is in fact not reversible. In order to fit the veneers
a small amount of enamel must be shaved off from each tooth and once this has been
done your natural teeth no longer look good without the veneers. Porcelain veneers
have also been known to break off. There may well be ongoing costs with veneers
therefore as replacements need to be sought or broken coverings fixed.
  Dental implants are a great way of replacing missing teeth. This involves having a
titanium root inserted into the jaw and a prosthetic tooth attached to it once it has
fused entirely with the bone. This is only possible when the bone is strong enough
however, so you should check with your dentist to see if you are a suitable candidate
for this type of work. Crowns are another good solution to improving the appearance
of your teeth. Neither dental implants nor crowns are nearly as severe as having
porcelain veneers fitted. If you are needing to have braces fitted then it is possible to
have invisible braces these days. Having braces can be difficult for children and
especially adults as it can make them very self-conscious so invisible braces are a
good solution if this sounds like you. Although they are more expensive than
traditional types they can boost confidence and ensure you are left with perfectly
straight teeth.
  Cosmetic dentistry was once for the Hollywood A-listers only, but now anyone can
benefit from tooth whitening, porcelain veneers or invisible braces. If you are
interested in having some cosmetic dentist uk done then the first step to take is talking
to your dentist. They will be able to tell you what treatments are appropriate and what
is involved in the procedures. Consider all possible ongoing costs before undertaking
surgery as you may need continued work in the future on anything you have done.
