Changing your smile and enhancing your smile can be simple and quick or can be more complex and involved. Understanding the underlying problem is key to start and then to discuss options with you, what is possible and what is not. Sometimes it may be a simple tooth whitening treatment and perhaps a small filling or contouring of a tooth, other times it may involve moving teeth with our modern tooth straightening techniques. It is vitally important to discuss all alternatives with you and find the solution that fits.
Tooth whitening is a really effective way to may a big change safely and predictably. It can be used on its own or as part of a larger more complex treatment plan. It is usual to perform a tooth whitening treatment at the completion of a tooth whitening treatment. We use custom made “Perfect” trays to apply a 10% carbamide peroxide gel to whiten your teeth. The trays can be used overnight or for a few hours during the day depending on preference. The trays are very close fitting and this combination gives excellent long lasting results. The trays can also be used for “top ups” every few months or when needed.
Smile makeovers can involve anything from a simple filling and a dental hygiene appointment to replacement of missing teeth with dental implants and tooth whitening. It is important to carry out a full assessment first to understand your concerns and what you would like to change. Once we have carried out investigations we can then offer solutions to you for discussion and consideration. We will also discuss potential time scales and of course costs to ensure you are totally happy with your choices.
With the advent of new tooth straightening technologies, this form of treatment has become much more popular with adults and no longer is just the domain of the teenager. We are able to use traditional brackets and wires to straighten teeth, even using wires on the inside of your teeth so they are invisible – lingual braces. We can also use Invisalign clear aligners to gently move your teeth into a better position. Again, the key is understand the underlying dental problem and then discussing options for treatment with you plus costs and timescales so we can deliver a solution right for you.
With all this talk about improving your smile it would be remiss not to include your skin and supporting structures. We are able to offer skin rejuvenating treatments to help smooth out wrinkles, plump lips and fine lines and restore volume. We will spend time to assess the underlying musculature in your face and decide which treatments would be of benefit.
