For many of us making the most of our appearance is a high priority. We spend time and effort finding a good hairdresser, perhaps exercising regularly, wearing stylish clothes, but sometimes there’s just one thing that lets us down: our teeth. Even if you take good care of your teeth, their appearance may make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about speaking confidently or smiling. If this is how you feel about your teeth, you’re not alone. More and more adults are realising that they do not have to live with an embarrassing smile any longer. Now they are taking steps to improve the appearance of their teeth by having cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Over the past 10 years or so, more and more dentists, such as PDC Dental in Barnsley have started to offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to their patients.
Cosmetic dentistry, not just a check-up and a polish
In the past, a trip to the dentists was either for your six-monthly check-up or because you had a problem with your teeth and needed a filling. Now you can benefit from a range of dental treatments designed to enhance your smile and make you look and feel fabulous.
One of the simplest treatments, tooth whitening, can really give your appearance a boost, the results are quick and painless. It may be all you need to look great for a special event such as your graduation or wedding day.
If the shape and colour of your teeth is not as good as you might wish, dental veneers can be used to restore their appearance. You may have a single damaged tooth or want to close small gaps between teeth without wearing braces, or make them look more even if they are too small.
All is not lost, even if you have missing teeth
If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can give you back your smile and your confidence, especially if it is a front tooth. The benefits of dental implants are both functional and cosmetic, because they act as a restored the root for your tooth, they also support your remaining teeth.
