Visiting A Cosmetic Dentist Can Transform Your Smile
Whereas general dentistry tends to focus on preventative treatments and keeping you orally fit, cosmetic dentistry goes a step further and is concerned with improving the appearance of your teeth, gums and bite so that you are able to enjoy the best possible version of your smile.
Lion Dental Centre is a general and cosmetic dentist in Stourbridge. As a general dentist, we offer hygienist visits, regular check-ups and oral cancer screening, among other services. As cosmetic dentists, we can transform your smile with a number of exciting treatments.
If you want straighter teeth, have a gap that needs filling, damaged enamel or another flaw you want to improve, see a cosmetic dentist. Not every dentist will offer cosmetic services – some specialise in general dentistry – so it’s worth checking what treatments are offered.
It’s a good idea to visit your cosmetic dentist to discuss which option would best suit your needs, lifestyle and budget
Veneers, as you’re probably aware, are thin layers of porcelain crafted to fit over the front of teeth to disguise imperfections, discolouration, uneven teeth or spacing issues. To attach the veneer, we need to remove a thin layer of the natural enamel on your teeth but this treatment gives a natural-looking result while minimising the need to remove any teeth.
Porcelain is particularly effective as a material for veneers because of how the light reflects and shines through it. People will not be able to tell you’ve had veneers, which can be perfectly colour matched to your surrounding teeth
As the name would suggest, a dental bridge spans the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. We anchor the bridge to your healthy teeth on either side of the gap. This is a fixed restoration that is often preferable to needing a removable denture. Again, dental bridges can be perfectly designed and colour matched by a cosmetic dentist to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth, then a cosmetic dentist or orthodontist will be able to suggest a range of treatment teeth straightening options. There are several highly effective ‘invisible’ orthodontic solutions that are ideal for busy adults who want discreet teeth straightening. Here at Lion Dental Centre, we offer fixed braces, Invisalign clear aligners and Six Month Smiles.
Once again, our cosmetic dentist in Stourbridge will be happy to talk through your individual case, budget, lifestyle and needs
Often seen as the ‘gold standard’ cosmetic dentistry treatment, dental implants are the ideal way to replace missing teeth and restore the function of your bite without having any impact on your surrounding natural teeth.
Not every cosmetic dentist will offer dental implants as dentists have to go through thorough training. At Lion Dental Centre, dental implants are an integral part of our cosmetic dentistry services.
