Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way over the last decade and now more than ever it is easy to achieve your dream smile. Feeling confident in our smile is something that can be extremely beneficial in boosting both our physical and mental health. Being insecure or feeling unhappy with our smile is unfortunately quite common in the UK, with studies suggesting that nearly half of British people are unhappy with their teeth. It is an unfortunate statistic, but thankfully there are many treatments out there that can transform your smile. Here is our list of 4 cosmetic dental treatments that could help you achieve your dream smile. 

Implants

Implants are a dental treatment that can replace either single or multiple teeth. During implant surgery, the implant screw is fixed into the jawbone and after a couple of weeks, the screw is fused to the bone. Once the jawbone has fused to the implant, a new fake tooth is fitted onto that screw. This is a great option if your main smile concern is that you are missing teeth. Implants are sturdy and basically undetectable to the untrained eye. They are a great alternative to dentures as they are fixed in place so you can eat more comfortably.  

Veneers

Veneers may be one of the cosmetic treatments you have heard of as they are quite popular with celebrities. The aim of veneers is to get a perfect smile and it is done by making the teeth even and whiter. The process of veneers involves bonding very thin pieces of porcelain or ceramic to the teeth in a way that your teeth look perfectly even and brighter. Veneers might be worthwhile if you have concerns with the colour or shape of your teeth, as the treatment can completely transform your smile. 

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a broad term that includes a multitude of treatments. Essentially, the aim of orthodontics is to straighten the teeth and it can be achieved in a number of ways. One of the most well-known treatments are metal braces, which can be a good option in the teenage years, but less appealing in adulthood. Clear aligners are an alternative treatment to braces that yields the same results but are less high-maintenance and are more aesthetically appealing. Both treatments work the same in that they put gentle pressure on your teeth to align them into place. 

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic treatment, and it is something simple you can do without having to go through a rigorous dental procedure or surgery. The rise in popularity of teeth whitening allowed the treatment to become much more accessible and dentists provide at-home whitening kits instead of spending hours in a chair getting the treatment. However, it is important to always get an at-home whitening kit from your dentist instead of buying one online as the ones online are not necessarily approved and can potentially cause harm to your teeth.
