Unhappy With Your Smile?

Please allow our Essex cosmetic dental team to help you have a great smile for 2017!

With 2016 now behind us, many of us will be looking at ways to improve our lives in the new year.

Health considerations, such as healthy eating and becoming fitter often feature in our resolutions (however short lived!). Finding a new job or even a relationship are also popular ones.

Whilst we can encourage you to eat more healthily to protect your teeth, it is perhaps in the area of helping you feel more confident for situations such as interviews and dates, that the team at the Cygnet Dental Practice in Essex can really help to play our part.

Smile and …

“Smile and the whole world smiles with you” goes the song and there is a lot of truth in it. When we smile, others often do so too, and, even experts agree that people generally warm to someone with a nice attractive smile.

When it comes to job interviews or first dates, a great looking smile gives us a distinct head start. Whilst it does not guarantee us success, it can certainly help us to have a positive connection with the other person. Once this has happened, it is far more likely that our skills and personalities will be allowed to shine through.

Modern smile enhancement procedures

Although it is impossible in a blog post to say exactly what treatments would be needed as this will be determined at the initial consultation at our Wickford practice, there are, by and large, three cosmetic dental procedures which are most widely used to produce a great smile.

  1. Teeth whitening – Our personalised home teeth whitening kit is an excellent and convenient way to have great looking teeth. Within a short period of time, it is possible to have teeth up to eight shades whiter than they were before.
  2. Dental Veneers – For teeth that are very badly stained or have chips or cracks in them, the use of dental veneers may be a better option. Instead of correcting the colour of the natural tooth surface, veneers are used to replace an equivalent thickness of the surface layer of the discoloured or damaged tooth. Whilst the procedure is a little more invasive than teeth whitening, it provides excellent and long lasting results.
  3. Orthodontics – Having beautiful white teeth is great, but, if your smile is crooked, it still detracts from the appearance of your teeth. Thankfully, there is now no need for old style metal dental braces and our Wickford dentists offer a range of cosmetic braces for a range of problems, including the popular Invisalign and Six Month Smiles systems. Both of these offer an effective, comfortable and discreet method of teeth straightening.
