Cosmetic Dentist Glasgow
Dentistry is no longer only about fillings and extractions. Over recent years there have been many advances in the technologies and techniques used in dentistry and cosmetic or ‘aesthetic’ dentistry is becoming more widely available. Cosmetic dentistry is the term used to describe treatments that improve the appearance of a persons smile.
Cosmetic treatments can range from simple white, tooth coloured fillings to a total smile makeover. If you are interested in any cosmetic treatments you can be rest assured you are in good hands at a 1smile clinic.
White fillings are our most popular cosmetic treatment with many of our patients requesting that their existing amalgam, or ‘silver’ fillings be replaced by white fillings. White fillings are almost undetectable in the mouth and create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Most Common Treatment Glasgow Cosmetic Dentists Provide
Tooth whitening is also very popular among our patients. At both our 1smile clinics we can offer you two ways in which we can lighten your teeth, both are very effective. In-surgery whitening is when you simply come in to the surgery and we apply a whitening gel. Results can be noticeable within about 30 minutes. We can also offer you custom made trays which fit directly on to your teeth. We would give you these trays along with some whitening gel syringes and teach you how to apply the gel. This method gives you more control over the level of whitening achieved.
We also now offer dental implants as a method for replacing a missing teeth. Implants are a titanium screw that is placed directly in to the jaw bone. This acts in the same way as the root of a natural tooth would, and would be restored by a crown to make it almost unnoticeable in the mouth. An implant is completely independent of the other teeth in the mouth. This means there is no damage to neighbouring teeth.
These are just a few examples of cosmetic dentistry. If you would like to know what your options for cosmetic dentistry are please arrange a consultation appointment with one of our dentists who will be happy to discuss the full range of cosmetic treatments available to you. This may include cosmetic veneers, crowns and bridges. Which will give you the smile makeover that you want. You can also find out more in-depth information about these treatments on our website.
