Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth and your smile, as opposed to finding a solution for toothache, or maintaining general oral health. The treatments good cosmetic dentists can offer, such as our Southwest London team, will range from tooth whitening and crowns or veneers, to orthodontic straightening and cutting edge replacement teeth in the form of dental implants.
Have you ever had a tooth fall out, or removed by a dentist at your home in south west London, leaving you with an unsightly gap? What did you do next? Perhaps you opted for a traditional denture, maybe you had a replacement tooth bonded to a tooth on one side of the gap, or maybe you were offered a dental implant? It’s also entirely possible that you did nothing and the gap is still there?
If you live in south west London and you’re unhappy with your smile, you could be causing yourself unnecessary stress and even potentially setting yourself up for heart failure. However, please don’t worry. Our expert team here at the Crescent Lodge Dental Clinic can help restore your smile to its former glory. We provide a full range of cosmetic dental treatments.
Historians argue that orthodontic treatment dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Catgut was wrapped around the teeth to close gaps. The Romans then later used finger pressure applied to the teeth to move them into better alignment.
You’ll be pleased to hear braces have evolved dramatically since then. You don’t have spend hours pushing your teeth manually into position! These days, braces are so discreet, it’s difficult to see them, but did you know that braces and the study of orthodontics can help your general health, as well as your smile? Let’s have a look at what your orthodontist can do for you beyond simply fitting your braces.
Getting your teeth straightened in Southwest London is not going to have a huge negative impact on your social life. Thanks to huge leaps in dental technology, clear braces that exert constant pressure on your teeth to move them into a more desirable position, are virtually invisible these days.
Many people feel nervous about going to the dentist and negative portrayals of dentists in films hasn’t helped alleviate peoples’ fears about getting dental treatment. The reality of regular dental checks is that if you have them, then you’re simply preventing future tooth problems and visiting the dentist won’t be a painful experience at all. As good dental hygiene is key in avoiding toothache, we’ve put together some tips to help ensure you keep your teeth and mouth healthy.
Have you been put off having orthodontic treatment because you don’t want to have a train track running across your teeth? Perhaps you’d love straighter teeth, but having witnessed braces with food caught on them, you’ve decided you’d rather put up with your crooked smile, than suffer the potential social awkwardness caused by fixed braces?
There is another solution. It’s a leading brand in orthodontic braces and over 3 million people have benefited from its discreet look and precise, cutting edge straightening method. The name of this pioneering brand of braces is Invisalign.

Seeing people with fitted braces either wincing when they bite into something crunchy, or smiling with the remnants of their last meal still stuck on their teeth, is not a good advert for wearing braces. Have you ever witnessed this? Did it put you off enquiring about wearing braces, even though you’d love to have straighter teeth and a winning smile?
It can take as little as just 6 weeks to straighten your teeth and give you the perfect smile you’ve always craved, but if those 6 weeks are going to involve your friends and family looking at you disgust while you eat in a weird way, or end up with food on your face, you might decide that the benefits of orthodontic treatment simply aren’t worth the hassle. Dental technology has changed a lot in recent years and so has the design of orthodontic braces.
If you’re going about your business in South West London and your mouth feels fine, why bother going for regular dental hygiene check ups? Our increasingly busy lives dictate what our priorities for the week should be and unfortunately taking half an hour to ensure our mouth remains healthy is often bumped off the list in favour of other activities.
Whether you’re finishing deadlines, attending an exercise class or grabbing that surprise evening of ‘me time’ when the kids are round at a friend’s house, your reluctance to see the dentist is entirely understandable. Like diets, getting round to booking your hygiene appointment, is something that will happen ‘tomorrow.’
Increasingly irregular hygiene appointments, however, can cause you to build up dental problems, which are simple to cure when caught early enough, but will become serious if left untreated. If you think building half an hour dedicated to your teeth two or four times a year is hard enough, wait until you have to find hours of free time to have your teeth treated. When you’re in pain, you’re teeth suddenly become your number one priority, but sadly they’re not, when you can’t feel them.
