Cosmetic Dentistry is experiencing a boom like never before. More and more of us are realising that we can achieve the beautiful smiles we have always wanted, with some help from our dentists. And, thanks to constant innovation within the dental industry, there is now a whole range of options available to you when it comes to improving the appearance of your smile.

Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments:

1. Teeth Whitening

Probably the simplest of all cosmetic dental treatments, teeth whitening is a short and affordable procedure that has an impressive impact on your smile. Administered by a trained and experienced dentist, whitening takes about an hour to complete. A laser is used to remove all staining from your teeth and brig them up to their whitest shade, safely and painlessly, for a bright Hollywood smile.

2. Invisible Braces

If you have always been unhappy with your crooked teeth and would like them to be straighter, adult braces could be the right choice for you. Many people believe that teeth can only be straightened in adolescence, but this is untrue – you can achieve straight teeth at any stage. These days, there are discreet options available, such as Invisalign, if you don’t want to wear 'train tracks'. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that are practically invisible, straightening your teeth without anyone else having to know.


3. Veneers and Crowns

Porcelain veneers are a great choice if your teeth are discoloured, broken or misshapen, they can also be used to close gaps and give your smile a more even appearance. Your dentist will first remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your toot. A thin veneer made from a strong, high quality porcelain is then attached, providing you with a natural-looking, long- lasting result. If your teeth are not in a good enough condition to support veneers, porcelain crowns are another option available option to you. Your dentist will advise you on the best solution for you.

4. Gum Lift

Some people feel that they show too much gum when they smile, in some cases, the gum is uneven which can give the smile a lopsided appearance. A gum lift can solve this issue quickly and easily as it is a quick procedure performed under local aesthetic and completed in one visit to your dentist. It instantly improves the appearance of your teeth and gums, and can also lead to better gum health.
