Cosmetic dentistry in Birmingham
We are drawn to beauty. And since you can make a first impression only once, a welcoming, beautiful smile is always a winner. Cosmetic dentistry’s purpose is to improve the appearance and oftentimes function of a person’s teeth, gums and bite by various proven and safe methods including bleaching, bonding, enamel reshaping, contouring, using veneers and crowns/bridges, orthodontics and implants. Cosmetic dentistry mainly focuses on the improvement of one’s smile by changing the colour, shape, size, position and arrangement of the teeth for the better.
There is a variety of issues that can make us feel self-conscious about our smile, such as discoloured, chipped/cracked, misshapen, crowded or missing teeth. Luckily, your dentist can easily fix these issues by whitening and reshaping teeth, closing spaces, restoring worn teeth or shorten them if that is needed to make your smile that much better.
And it’s not only our confidence that can suffer either. Many of these conditions influence our bite and overall oral health. No wonder then that these days cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, making its procedures one of the most wanted in the world of cosmetic solutions.
There is no job too small or too big. Your dentist can perform a number of procedures from subtle changes to major repairs to give you the smile makeover that you are after.
When you are considering cosmetic dental treatment, there are many questions to ask your chosen dentist. First of all you need to find out if your goals are achievable and realistic. You might want to see a computer simulation of the change you can expect. You also should be interested in the risks and benefits, also any alternatives for your recommendations as well as the short and long-term implications for your dental health. You might want to see some examples of your chosen dentist’s work and definitely need to familiarize yourself with the costs and time involved.
Before choosing a procedure, we will make sure that you know and understand the benefits and risks and what you can expect during and after treatment. You will receive a detailed plan and all your questions will be answered in great detail.
