Although, above all else, it is important to have healthy teeth and gums, there is little doubt that also having a beautiful looking smile is a real bonus.
Many studies have shown that a smile is one of the first things that we notice about other people, often instantly affecting our judgement about them. Those first few moments when we notice a smile could have significant implications for personal relationships, and even, potentially, for our employment prospects too.
Having a great looking smile though is something that rarely happens without some cosmetic dentistry being performed. However well we look after our teeth, from a health point of view, some discolouration and/or crookedness of our teeth is fairly likely at some point in our lives.
At The Lodge Dental Suite, many of our patients have opted for cosmetic dental treatments to help them have a nicer looking smile. There are a wide range of options to choose from, though it is always best to discuss the most appropriate treatments with our dentists rather than attempt to pick from a list.
We’ve discussed some of the treatments available at our Cheshunt practice in previous blogs, but it’s always worth a reminder for anyone considering treatment.
Teeth whitening – This can either be done at home using custom made whitening trays, or a one hour teeth whitening procedure can be carried out within the practice by one of our cosmetic dentists, for more instant results.
Straighter teeth – Our fast acting cosmetic braces offer a way to have straighter teeth in a shorter period of time than you might expect. Anticipated treatment time can be discussed following a consultation to assess your specific needs.
Dental implants – This one off treatment allows for a full tooth replacement, including an artificial root for added strength and stability.
White dental fillings – Dark coloured amalgam fillings can be a thing of the past with natural looking teeth fillings.
Snap on Smile – If you want to have a great looking smile for special occasions but leaving your natural teeth as they are at other times, the Snap On Smile is a great way to go, especially if you are a nervous patient who would rather avoid any treatment.
If you are looking to improve your smile, the best place to start is by arranging a non clinical appointment with one of our cosmetic dental team. They will be able to examine your teeth and gums and offer advice on the best way to achieve your aims. We will also be pleased to discuss payment plans to help you to manage your budget too.
To arrange your appointment at our Cheshunt dental surgery, please call The Lodge Dental Suite on 01992 643388. We’re here to help you get your smile back on track!
