Cosmetic dentistry: more than just improving the aesthetics of your smile
Did you know that cosmetic dentistry isn’t just cosmetic? We take a look at how treatments can not only improve your oral health and hygiene, they can also boost your confidence and self-esteem, giving you a whole new outlook.
Tooth whitening at Fresh is bespoke and you will be able to choose a desired shade for your teeth with your dentist. We will take factors such as your eye, skin, and existing tooth shade into account in order to produce the most authentic-looking result.
Prior to tooth whitening, we will perform what is known as a scale and polish of your teeth in order to remove any tenacious staining (caused by plaque and tartar) that cannot be removed through brushing alone. By removing this type of staining, patients have the chance to ‘reset’ their dental hygiene and change their dental habits thereafter.
Veneers are used to repair damaged, decayed, weakened, widely-spaced and cracked teeth and are one of the most effective ways of salvaging a damaged tooth. Veneers are stain-resistant and can handle high amounts of wear and tear; a highly durable solution. It is however, important to avoid certain lifestyle choices that will eventually impact upon the shade of your veneers. Veneers give you back the functionality of your teeth, allowing you to chew and talk without any complications.
Crowns cover damaged teeth, restoring strength, aesthetics, and function for patients. They can also be used as a restoration after a dental implant has been placed. Fresh Dental are one of the few practices in the Maidstone area to offer same-day CEREC crowns, a state-of-the-art technique for replacing crowns. CEREC is particularly appealing to those who do not wish to be fitted with a temporary crown and who are looking for the highest level of quality for their crown. Bespoke and crafted in our on-site milling machine, CEREC crowns are the best type of restoration on offer.
Your dentist may recommend a bridge if you are missing more than one tooth to span the space where the teeth are missing. Your natural teeth support the bridge or they can also be supported by implants. We can create a bridge that matches the appearance of your existing teeth using CEREC technology. As well as restoring the cosmetics of your smile, a dental bridge gives you back your full ability to chew and can tackle speech impediments that may have manifested as a result of missing teeth.
Something these treatments have in common is they have a great impact on patient confidence and patients may find that the biggest difference they see is an improvement in their wellbeing.
