In Harley Street, cosmetic dentists are helping people rediscover how good it feels to smile.
A cosmetic dentist in Harley Street is different from a general dentist, in that their focus is more on the appearance of the smile, teeth and gums. The cosmetic dentist is looking at the alignment of the teeth, asking themselves questions like:
‘Do this mouth have too many teeth?’ – a condition which is known as over-crowding.
‘Do these teeth lean far in or too far out?’ – the technical term for this is misalignment.
‘Is there too much gum on view when the patient smiles?’ – a feature, which is, unsurprisingly, called gummy smile.
These are the naturally-occurring problems that people come into Harley Street Dental Clinic to receive treatment for.
Then there are the dental problems that start to occur as we go through life:
- A mouth full of amalgam fillings that are making their owner self-conscious when they laugh;
- Teeth so stained and discoloured by tobacco, tea, coffee, red wine and just living that they no longer sparkle, not even after a good clean from the hygienist;
- Teeth that have been knocked out, or fallen out, or removed due to infection or too many fillings.
These are all problems that people come to their Harley Street cosmetic dentist for help with.
Cosmetic dentistry is no longer seen as self-indulgent, as more and more people experience the benefits of a great smile of sparkling, evenly-toned, straight, healthy-looking teeth. That feeling of wellbeing comes from several sources.
Firstly, the smiler has shed the burden of feeling self-conscious, maybe even downright depressed about the state of their teeth and mouth. Secondly, the mouth and teeth are in better overall condition and this helps prevent oral diseases, the patient’s physical health is better. Thirdly, the act of smiling releases the feel-good chemicals serotonin and beta-endorphins leading to feelings of increased happiness. What could be better?
