Contrary to common belief, cosmetic dentistry is not as painful or expensive as you may imagine, thanks to today’s innovative and versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of the teeth and gums, however, it may also include some curative or restorative treatments for good oral function.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic in Harley Street, a cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly and create a highly customised smile makeover that may include one or several cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. With innovative new techniques and virtually painless treatments, a smile makeover is now readily achievable for almost any patient who is unhappy with the appearance of their smile or teeth.
Teeth whitening is a popular and inexpensive treatment that can help you brighten your teeth by several shades. Teeth are commonly stained by foods, drinks, smoking and medications. Yellow and discoloured teeth are also the result of genetics and old age. In order to restore the white colour of your teeth we use two teeth whitening procedures – power whitening and home whitening.
The first method is ideal for patients who wish to have teeth whitened at the dental chair in less than an hour. The treatment employs a customised bleaching gel that is activated with the aid of light. After one hour, you can expect your teeth to look several shades lighter. Home whitening, on the other hand, employs a set of custom-made bleaching trays that you have to wear overnight for a period of two weeks. Results are normally seen after the two weeks have passed. Both treatments are safe and effective.
Porcelain veneers can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of your teeth, because they can fix more than one problems at once. Porcelain veneers are made of thin shells of porcelain, custom-made for your teeth and bonded to the front of each tooth by our cosmetic dentist in Harley Street. Veneers can provide an aesthetic solution to many problems, including crooked, chipped, cracked, gapped and stained teeth.
