Cosmetic dentistry is a highly specialized form of dental care that focuses on improving your teeth’ look, healthiness or appearance. It’s important to know that not all cosmetic procedures are carried out for the same reason. Some may be essential if you want whiter, brighter smiles with fewer stains or also for people who have chipped or cracked teeth! For Cosmetic Dentistry in Epsom, visit us here at Epsom Smiles today.
We can offer many Cosmetic Dentistry procedures here at Epsom Smiles to give you a ‘Smile Makeover’. If you’re trying to hide your smile or tooth discoloration has made you feel self-conscious about your smile, we can help to transform it. We will talk through how we can help and consider facial features, age and different characteristics. Everybody is different, so we must go through this process to choose the suitable treatment method for you and your smile.
We understand that the teeth need to be functional, and our cosmetic procedures can help replace cracks in the teeth or be used to close gaps and even straighten overlapping or crooked teeth. As well as whitening your teeth, there are many possibilities for what we can do for you!
Most people have heard of having your teeth Whitening, and here at Epsom Smiles, we have introduced Teeth Whitening to our practice. This is a well-known procedure to lighten and enhance the colour of your teeth. It is used by people who have built up stains on their teeth over the years and want to bring them back to a more natural colour. Teeth Whitening is used to transform your smile completely. People living with yellow stained teeth may feel self-conscious, but having one of our Teeth Whitening procedures will help to transform your smile entirely and help to boost your confidence.
Yellow stained teeth are very common amongst everyone, and there are many reasons why your teeth can become yellow. The first reason is if you are a smoker. Tobacco can significantly impact your teeth and cause them to become very yellow. Also, the foods you are eating, it is said that starchy foods can cause discoloration. If you are a big tea or coffee drinker, this can also cause your teeth to change colour.
There are two types of Teeth Whitening we offer here at Epsom Smiles. They are Boutique Whitening and Airflow Cleaning. Boutique Whitening is a procedure you will do yourself at home. We will mould and make trays to fit your teeth and then supply chemicals you have to put into the trays and then wear them overnight. Over time this will enhance and whiten your teeth. The other method, Airflow Cleaning, is a procedure completed at the surgery. We will use a jet of compressed air, water, and bicarbonate particles, polishing the teeth gently and wiping away stains, creating a perfectly white smile. Both are effective ways of Teeth Whitening, and our dentists will go through these options for you to see which would work best.
Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that we bond to the surface of your teeth. They are custom made to fit the individual to achieve their desired look, shape and colour. They can help protect the tooth’s natural surface and enamel from any damage. This is a subtle change that can completely transform your smile.
Porcelain Veneers are a popular way of enhancing your teeth. They can not only change the colour and appearance but also can be used to close gaps between your teeth and even change their shape for a more even look. Porcelain Veneers are also known as Dental Facelifts and are a very good way of transforming your smile.
As these Veneers will be fitted to your teeth, your teeth must be relatively intact to be able to recieve the best results. The Porcelain Veneers that we supply are solid and resist most forces by a regular diet and good dental care.
Invisalign is one of our most popular treatment options for Cosmetic Dentistry in Epsom. It is a method of naturally straightening the teeth by using clear invisible trays. Moulds will be taken of your teeth, and then the trays made to fit your mouth specifically. Over time you will see your teeth move to fit the trays creating a naturally straight smile. This is an alternative method to the traditional metal braces, allowing the process to look natural and be completed in a more realistic time scale.
Everyone’s cases are different, so our Invisalign specialists will talk through your case with you, providing you with all the cost information and giving you a rough idea of the duration of your treatment. You can start seeing results fairly quickly with Invisalign, but it can take around six months for the treatment to be fully completed.
There are many different filling options if you have a cavity, but the best would be ‘White Fillings’. These are tooth coloured so are unnoticeable in your mouth. If you already have a filling made from a different material like an Amalgam or Silver Filling, we are happy to replace it with a white one to achieve a better and more natural result for your teeth.
White fillings are the best method for filling cavities as they are tooth coloured and pretty much invisible to the naked eye. They can also help to make your teeth appear whiter and brighter. We have a range of filling options here, so you can choose another material if you don’t want to go for the Porcelain filling. Our fillings prevent any further decay to the tooth and are an effective way of filling a cavity.
Gum Line Correction
So many people are self-conscious about their gums, and you may be thinking there is nothing you can do about it. Well, here at Epsom smiles, we have introduced a Gum Line Correction procedure. This is for those who feel they have a ‘gummy smile’. It helps enhance the appearance of your gums, making them look healthier and bringing them away from the teeth. This treatment method can also help strengthen your gum tissue’s health. Here at Epsom Smiles, we also offer a ‘Gum Lift’. The process removes any excess gum tissue in a patient’s smile that shows excessive amounts of gum. This treatment method can transform your smile and enhance your confidence and can also be used in conjunction with Veneers and Crowns.
All-On-4 is a significant procedure with the nickname ‘Same Day, Same Teeth’. It is the process where a fixed bridge is attached to a dental implant. It is a good solution for people who don’t have a lot of teeth. We will extract any remaining teeth you have on the day of your surgery and then fit the new permanent set in. It can take around six months to do, and there is additional recovery time. This is usually a last resort option, and our dental nurses will see if there are any other treatment methods for you before you go ahead with the procedure.
Al-On-4 is quite long and can be a painful treatment. We recommend that you have sedation on the day of surgery for our nervous patients to help you feel more relaxed and at ease and calm your nerves. There is a lot of aftercare for this treatment method, and recovery time can be long, so you must listen to the detailed aftercare information that the dentists will provide for you.
Here at Epsom Smiles, we can provide a wide range of cosmetic procedures to give you your dream smile. We have an excellent and experienced team of dentists to assist you in deciding what the best treatment method is for you. For the best Cosmetic Procedures in Epsom, contact Epsom Smiles today!
