Why does it sting, isn’t it just a tooth? And how on earth do you fix it? Don’t worry, we’re here to tell you that a chipped tooth can be rectified.

Your dental health directly correlates to what comes into contact with your teeth and gums and how long its left to linger there. For example, when your teeth are coated in sugar and this is left uncleaned it forms plaque, and when tannins in coffee come into contact with your teeth they can stain. It’s not often that the harmfulness of smoking is viewed in relation to your dental health, but your dentist wants you to know that it is doing you a lot of harm.
Dental implants have been known to last for 30 to 40 years. With some people, they could be expected to be a life-long proposition. If you can replace a missing tooth with a prosthesis that is fixed securely into the mouth and fits alongside your existing teeth, without anybody knowing it’s false, do you think it’s worth the trouble of having them fitted? Our dental implant patients have nothing but praise for them!
Body image is a huge problem for a lot of people. In a survey by Psychology today, 40% of women and 29% of men said that how they believed their partner viewed their body had a huge impact on their body image. In an ideal world, many of us would wish we weren’t so sensitive when it came to our looks, but that doesn’t help how we feel.
As we age, we naturally become more sensitive about our looks. It’s difficult to embrace the changes to our appearance that maturing skin brings, when the media persists in equating beauty with youth. Luckily however, if you are of the mind that you’d like to turn back the clock on the ageing process in an aesthetic way, it’s perfectly possible and acceptable to do so. You can enjoy a rejuvenation and restoration of your former glory, giving you a boost to your confidence at the same time.
So, you’ve either opted for our in-clinic Philips Zoom! teeth whitening, or you’ve gone with our Opalescense home teeth whitening kit. Either way, a great choice! But now you’re enjoying your teeth whitening results, how do you maintain them and keep your teeth sparkling white for the longest time possible?
A broken tooth, whether through accident or injury or a series of unfortunate events, isn’t the latest addition to your smile you were planning. Not only can they affect your confidence, but a broken tooth can expose the interior nerves and dentin that are super sensitive to breathing, chewing, and speaking. Ouch! How can you fix a broken tooth, and are there different ways of doing so?
If you’re looking for better career prospects, fixing your smile might be a good starting point. This might sound like a wacky fact made up by dentists, but in fact Forbes magazine is just one of many publications that has, in the past, stated that employers have confessed to having their opinions swayed by an attractive smile. Whether you’re looking to get hired or chosen for promotion, it seems that well-aligned teeth could help you achieve that. You might benefit from Invisalign…
