What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Think of your smile as a masterpiece in the making. Cosmetic dentistry is the artist’s touch, transforming not just your appearance but weaving in strength and functionality. It’s more than a surface-level change; it’s about crafting a smile that’s uniquely yours. As the name suggests, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth, mouth, and smile. It’s different from general dentistry, which concentrates on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease.

Cosmetic treatments include teeth whitening, veneers, fillings that match your teeth, and dental implants. These procedures can fix issues like discolouration, chips, or missing teeth. It’s not just about looks; it can help with your oral function and health too.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a thin layer of material, usually porcelain, placed over a tooth to improve its appearance. They’re custom-made to fit each tooth and match the natural colour of your teeth. Veneers can fix problems like stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth. The process usually involves shaving a small amount of the tooth’s enamel to fit the veneer.

It’s a popular cosmetic dental treatment in the UK, offering a long-lasting way to enhance your smile. They’re strong and can resist stains better than natural teeth, making them a preferred choice for a smile makeover.

Why might I have a veneer?

Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks.

How are veneers fitted?

A small amount of enamel is removed from the tooth, usually the same thickness as the veneer will be. The dental team take an impression and send it to a dental technician, who makes the veneer in a laboratory. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth to form a strong and natural-looking repair.

What are the advantages of veneers?

Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all.

What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?

Dental veneers are used to fix several types of cosmetic dental issues:

Discoloured Teeth: They cover stains that teeth whitening can’t fix, like deep discolouration from medications or excessive fluoride.

Worn Down Teeth: Veneers restore the appearance of teeth that have been worn down from grinding or general wear.

Chipped or Broken Teeth: They cover and protect chipped or broken areas, improving the tooth’s appearance.

Misaligned or Irregularly Shaped Teeth: Veneers can make teeth appear more uniform and aligned, fixing minor misalignments or irregular shapes.

Gaps Between Teeth: They can close spaces between teeth for a more even smile.

Veneers offer a cosmetic solution that also helps protect the tooth’s surface from further damage.

In conclusion, cosmetic dentistry is all about enhancing the appearance of your smile. It goes beyond just fixing dental health issues, focusing on improving the aesthetic aspects of your teeth and mouth.

With treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, and implants, cosmetic dentistry offers solutions for a range of issues from discolouration to misaligned teeth. It’s a blend of art and dental science, providing not only a boost to your appearance but also potentially improving oral functionality and health.
