UncategorizedWhat procedures are included in cosmetic dentistry?

When it comes to your smile, the way it looks can be hugely important and whilst the health of your smile should always come first, there’s no reason why you can’t have teeth that look great as well.

The good news is that there’s a huge range of options for cosmetic dentistry in London that can transform your smile in tiny and big ways, and here at Finsbury Dental, we provide a whole spectrum of options.

But, with so much choice on offer, it can be difficult to know what treatment to go for, so to help we’re breaking down the different procedures that fall under cosmetic dentistry in London.

What are the different cosmetic dentistry treatments available?

Whether you feel your smile could be brighter or you want straighter-looking teeth, there’s now a cosmetic treatment that can help. Modern dentistry has really come a long way, and this area of dentistry, in particular, has become one of the most popular with patients aiming to enhance how their smiles look.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments such as the type we offer here at Finsbury Dental include:

  • Veneers – usually made from ultra-thin porcelain, veneers are incredibly popular ways of perfecting the appearance of your teeth. This low-maintenance treatment involves attaching these thin pieces of porcelain to the front surface of your teeth, making the overall aesthetic cleaner looking, brighter, straighter and more polished. Veneers are also a great option if you have broken or chipped teeth.
  • Dental crowns – crowns are a great option for those with more severe damage to their teeth, such as severe chips or breaks, or where excessive fillings have been placed. Dental crowns slip over the natural tooth to act as a ‘cap’ and restore how the tooth looks and performs.
  • Teeth whitening – whether you opt for at-home tooth whitening or in-clinic, this can be a very effective way of creating a whiter and brighter, healthier-looking smile. It’s always advisable that you use dentist-prescribed teeth whitening, as some at-home kits can be unsafe for use.

Some other areas of dentistry can be mistaken for cosmetic procedures because they change the appearance of your teeth, such as orthodontics which works to straighten the teeth. Whilst cosmetic dentistry is solely focused on the appearance of the teeth however, orthodontics works on fixing malocclusions of the teeth, including issues with bite or misalignment.
