Recent research by the British Dental Health Foundation and Invisalign shows that one in four people in the UK are unhappy with their teeth. In fact, up to 70% of us are so unhappy with our teeth that we avoid smiling in photographs all together!
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise though- when you consider that the smile is one of the features we most notice and remember about someone when we first meet them. Likewise, our own smile will give an instant (and long-term) impression of us to someone else.
In our modern times, with constant access to social media and the internet we are bombarded with pictures of stunning celebrities and their perfect smiles. It’s no wonder then that many of us can feel self-conscious about our own teeth.
Whether they are crooked or misaligned, stained and discoloured, missing or overcrowded the list of desired improvements is endless and varied.
Luckily, modern dentistry means that a healthy looking and attractive smile is now a possibility for everyone- regardless of your age or the condition of your existing teeth. We offer our patients a wide range of cosmetic treatments to help in your pursuit of the smile you truly desire.
The benefits of a sparkling, straight and healthy looking smile are obvious to see but the changes in personal self-confidence can also be dramatic. The replacement of missing teeth and orthodontic straightening can also greatly improve your overall oral health- dramatically cutting your risks of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.
A smile makeover can be subtle or dramatic. Tooth whitening is one of the most simple and quick ways to give your smile a new look. The replacement of amalgam fillings with tooth coloured composite can also dramatically freshen the look of your mouth. One or more broken teeth can be successfully replaced to restore look and function, whilst crooked and misaligned teeth can be quickly straightened with a variety of braces and aligners- even if teeth require significant movement.
Many of our cosmetic treatments are more comfortable than expected with modern braces now very discreet- some are even invisible! Bespoke treatments can be planned in advance giving greatly reduced treatment times and making them more cost-effective.
Whatever you’d like to change or improve, don’t just assume it isn’t possible. The right treatment really is there for everyone.
