First impressions are lasting ones; if you have stained teeth, chipped, worn or missing front teeth, these will be held in the memory of people you meet, and create an unfavourable first impression. An unattractive smile can therefore lead to a lack of self-confidence.
Large metallic fillings can discolour and internally stain the surrounding tooth structure. Crooked teeth immediately stand out from the crowd. Missing teeth and poorly designed crowns can create black areas in your mouth. Modern dentistry is all about giving you a smile to be proud of, giving you back your confidence. Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel. And when you feel and look good, you project a confident image.
Cosmetic dentistry is a broad title that describes several new and exciting techniques that can fill gaps between teeth and restore discoloured, misshapen, or broken teeth. There are several procedures that fall under the heading of cosmetic dentistry:
- Cosmetic resin bonding
- Shade correction by bleaching
- Laminate veneers
- Orthodontic tooth movement
- Replacement of missing or discoloured teeth
- Cosmetic reshaping
- Special crowns
- Specialty dentures
- Replacement of lost gum tissue
