Choosing a dentist is important, as you look not only at what they offer but the look and feel of their offices, how clean they are and how friendly the staff. It’s good to be clear about what you want before you proceed. Restorative and preventive dentistry make up the back bone of any good clinic’s work, making sure their hygienist and routine work is conducted just how you’d want it. However, an area you may not have considered is cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry is about more than how you look, it’s about preserving teeth, restoring confidence and provide peace of mind.
What can my cosmetic dentist in Southampton do for me?
In a recent survey, people between the ages of 20 to 64 said they had at least 4 decayed or missing teeth and a whopping 13 with damaged or decaying surfaces. If you are experiencing missing teeth or teeth with damaged surfaces, you’ll know the impact it has on your confidence and how you present yourself to the world. If you are doing close-lipped smiling or putting a hand over your mouth when you laugh to cover up damaged teeth, it’s no joke. Smilemakers is a cosmetic dentist in Southampton that can change that for you.
We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry that can restore your natural teeth to their former glory or can replace teeth completely if with natural looking alternatives.
Starting with the colour, within as little as an hour, stubborn staining from smoking or red wine can be removed or with teeth whitening. If those stains are deeper and can’t be removed, they can be covered up completely with veneers.
Veneers are incredibly fine sheaths made out of porcelain or resin. The thin layer of your damaged tooth is removed, and the veneer bonded in place, not only covering the damage but also, strengthening it ensuring you keep a healthy tooth ongoing.
And should you lose a tooth, dental implants can hold the crown or denture in place, replacing the lost tooth and blending in with all your surrounding teeth.
With modern dentistry, it’s possible your cosmetic dentist in Southampton can restore your teeth and give you the confidence to smile fully again.
