Even Small Changes Can Improve Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry in Downham Market is becoming far more common and you might’ve noticed your friends, family members and acquaintances seem to have nicer smiles than before. Perhaps you think cosmetic dentistry is too expensive to consider but in fact even making small changes can make a considerable difference to your smile. You’ll find your dentist in Downham Market can offer you quite a few different dental treatments that won’t break the bank but which could help put a sparkle in your smile.
Treatments That Can Help
Cosmetic dental treatments that may help improve your smile include renewing old and stained or silver coloured fillings with nice tooth coloured cosmetic white fillings or even porcelain inlays and onlays for larger areas of decay, teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Often even changing old and stained fillings can make a surprising amount of difference, particularly if they are towards the front of the mouth.
White Fillings, a Healthy and Cosmetically Pleasing Choice for Repairing Teeth
White fillings are made from composite resin and this material can be closely matched to your natural tooth colour, and it’s even possible that your dentist in Downham Market will use several colours of filling material to get your shade just right. The composite resin material used to repair cavities can also be useful in repairing chipped or cracked teeth and treatment can be completed in one easy visit to Downham Market Dental Care.
The really great thing about white fillings is that they are very good for your teeth. The material bonds very strongly to your natural teeth, effectively sealing out bacteria. Unlike sliver coloured amalgam fillings, white fillings do not flex when they come into contact with hot and cold as this continual flexing can eventually create micro-fractures in teeth, which over time can weaken them.
Many people still have silver coloured fillings in the back teeth and this can create dark areas in the mouth that can detract from an otherwise nice smile. While it’s not necessary to replace these fillings if they are still viable, all types of fillings do need replacing periodically and it could be worth considering white fillings if your silver fillings are nearing the end of their life.
Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers
Teeth whitening is always popular and it is best carried out by your dentist in Downham Market. Many people assume that because you can buy certain whitening products over the counter then teeth whitening is something that can be carried out by anybody. This isn’t true as it is still a dental treatment and if performed incorrectly has the potential to harm your teeth and gums. Visiting your dentist will ensure your teeth are whitened safely and effectively and with minimal side effects. If you have any teeth that are internally stained and which cannot be bleached, these can be covered up with beautiful porcelain veneers to compliment your healthy white smile.
