If you want to change something about your appearance it might be easier than you think. You can change your wardrobe and get a new haircut but if you are dissatisfied with the look of your smile, this is something that can do something about too. Dentists do not only offer treatment for dental ailments like cavities and gum disease. They can also offer procedures which are designed to improve the look of your teeth and give you a smile which you can be truly proud of.
These procedures are known collectively as cosmetic dentistry and they encompass a wide variety of treatments. Many people find that persistent drinking of tea or coffee or the act of smoking over a number of years leaves their teeth stained and/or discoloured. Dentists can restore whiteness to teeth using one of a number of treatments. This is an example of cosmetic dentistry.
Dentists can also fit porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns to effectively cover teeth which have become cracked or chipped or even discoloured. These procedures are now able to be carried out with incredible speed and efficiency and, increasingly, people are having to visit the surgery for much shorter amounts of time in order to achieve the look that they are after. These increases in speed and efficiency are largely down to innovations such as digital x-rays which work in three dimensions and are becoming a staple of dental surgeries around the United Kingdom.
Talk to your City of London dentist and ask him or her about which cosmetic dentistry procedures they offer. You might just find that they can carry out a treatment or series of treatments on your teeth which greatly improves the look of your smile.
