The majority of us, when we look in the mirror, will spot something that we would like to change. It could be the colour of our teeth. It could be crooked teeth. It could be the shape of our teeth or our gums. It could be chips or cracks. But whatever the issue, most of us dream of being able to change it and at Falkirk Dental Care we are able to offer you a wide variety of new treatments and modern techniques which means high quality cosmetic dentistry is now more affordable and more accessible than ever before.
If you are interested in a smile makeover, we have a number of options available to you.
There are four key areas where we can recommend improvements to your smile. These areas consist of:
- the colour of your teeth
- repairs to your teeth
- teeth straightening
- gum contouring.
Most smile makeovers will consist of one or more of these treatments.
There are lots of tooth whitening products currently available and what you choose will depend very much on your time and budget.Laser teeth whitening techniques can take just one single appointment and show an improvement immediately. Other techniques may require wearing a gumshield each evening for a number of weeks, as well as a number of appointments.
So... what sort of results do you want and how soon do you expect them?
Another approach to whitening discoloured teeth is to have porcelain veneers fitted. These can be more expensive than teeth whitening treatments. However, they can be suitable if you have other issues with your teeth, such as gaps, chips or slightly crooked teeth. Veneers will cover all of these and create the impression of whiter, straighter teeth.
The second type of smile improvement is general repairs to your teeth. Veneers are one option for correcting chips and cracks. However, we also have the capability to replace missing teeth with dental implants and correct individual chips and abrasions with tooth-coloured bonding materials.
Veneers will help to cover up slightly crooked teeth so that they present a more uniformed look. you may have to consider an alternative orthodontic product, such as dental implants, gum contouring or a dental brace. Nowadays, traditional ‘train track’ braces are being superseded by products which are far more lifestyle-friendly. You can get ‘invisible’ dental braces that attach to the back of your teeth, removable braces and tooth-coloured braces.
You can also get braces which are fast-acting, so you wear them for a much shorter period of time than conventional braces.
The end result is that you can now wear braces without feeling self-conscious in front of other people.
Finally, many people who want their smile adjusted choose to do so because they show too much gum when they smile, or think that their teeth are too long. A technique called (Gum Contouring) means that we can now easily shape your gums in just one visit. Dentists can also shape individual teeth if required, to improve your smile.
With 0% finance packages available, your smile makeover is now much more of a possibility than ever before.
