How a cosmetic dentist can create the perfect smile makeover

There are a number of ways a cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of your smile. Many of the techniques available at Harley Street Dental Clinic take far less time than a lot of people think, meaning that your perfect smile could be a matter of just a few appointments away.

cosmetic-dentistryWhen you come into our Harley Street clinic for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, they will ensure that they take the time to find out a bit more about you and what your ideal smile would look like, before performing a clinical examination. They will then talk through all the relevant ways in which your smile goals can be achieved.

It may be that you need just one treatment, or a combination of two or more. In many cases your dentist will carry out all treatment his or herself, but in some cases it will be best to refer you to one of their specialist colleagues. Either way, your original cosmetic dentist will oversee all of your treatment and care during your time at Harley Street Dental Clinic.

Options from your Harley Street cosmetic dentist

Among the popular treatments available from the cosmetic dental team at Harley Street Dental Clinic are:

Porcelain veneers

Thin pieces of porcelain bonded over the front surfaces of your teeth, veneers can quickly improve their appearance. They are an excellent option if you have permanently discoloured teeth, small spacing or alignment issues, or for teeth that have small chips or cracks. One veneer can be used to improve the look of a permanently stained tooth, whilst a full set can create a smile makeover.

Teeth whitening

When carried out by a cosmetic dentist, this is a safe, fast, and effective way to remove common stains such as nicotine or coffee from the teeth. We offer a number of options at our Harley Street clinic.

Gum lifts

Gum lifts are an excellent option to treat gummy smiles. Mild cases involve using a laser to reshape the gum line, whilst more extensive cases may involve the removal of bone and gum through dental surgery.
