Our Top 3 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Based in Clapham Common, London, we at Crescent Lodge Dental Practice are renowned throughout the capital and surrounding areas for our range of dental treatments. In this post, we’ll focus on our top 3 cosmetic dentistry procedures, which can all help give you a smile makeover that lasts.
1) Teeth whitening
While teeth whitening may be more associated with celebrities and the elite, it’s actually more common than you think. In fact, it’s highly likely that someone you know has either had teeth whitening in the past, or is considering it in the future. And, when treatment is carried out in order to create a natural result – as we aim to do in our London dental practice – it can give you a brighter smile that doesn’t look fake or overly obvious.
Teeth whitening is great for those who have teeth which have been discoloured by smoke, red wine or coffee, or which have been stained by foods like curry or tomato-based sauces. Dull, dark and stained teeth can age us, affect our confidence and look ‘unclean’. We offer both at-home and in-practice teeth whiteningtreatments for greater flexibility, though both yield incredible results that can last for several years.
Whatever the material they’re made from – we use porcelain – veneers can be used for a multitude of reasons. If you’ve got a slightly gappy or crooked smile, veneers can create a more uniform look. If you have an odd dull tooth you want to cover, veneers give you a gleaming new canvas. For a tooth that has a slight crack or chip, where the full-coverage of a crown is too drastic, veneers are a great option.
We can also offer what’s known as ‘composite bonding’, where tooth-coloured material is layered onto your natural teeth. It’s strong, long-lasting, and extremely natural-looking. Whatever you choose, we aim to keep as much healthy tissue as we can with our veneer treatment.
3) White fillings
Surprisingly, many of our patients don’t consider white fillings to be a cosmetic procedure at all – after all, they restore function and durability to your affected tooth by filling in any cavities. But, with their bright white colour, they are an attractive alternative to traditional metal fillings.
