If you find yourself sighing and turning away from the mirror every time you finish brushing your teeth, then it may be time to talk to your dentist in Harley Street to find out what they could do for you to improve your smile and leave you feeling great when you see your reflection.
It is easy to book a consultation appointment at your dental practice online or over the phone, and at your consultation, your practitioner will be able to carry out a full examination of your mouth. From here they will be able to inform you whether you could benefit from things such as braces or whitening treatments.
Are you unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth?
Crooked or generally uneven teeth become the bane of so many people’s lives, but there are now so many different treatment options available that straightening your teeth has never been so easy. Whether your adult teeth have just come through and your dental practitioner has advised that you should have braces or your jaw has started to change shape and your teeth have started to shift into crooked positions and you want to prevent it from getting worse, your dental practice is there for you.
A variety of treatments to suit everybody
Traditional and ceramic braces are both fixed to the surfaces of your teeth and offer complete control to your practitioner when it comes to moving your teeth. These appliances are capable of correcting even the severest of cases. Treatment time generally takes between eighteen and twenty-four months, but every set of teeth is different so treatment times may vary.
If you do not like the sound of the above appliances then there are other alternatives. Lingual braces are completely hidden from view so nobody will even notice that you are undergoing treatment. They work in a similar way to traditional braces and have a similar treatment time, but they are much more discreet.
Sometimes people desire to be able to remove their appliance, as the idea of having something permanently fixed onto their teeth for a year or two seems off-putting. Invisalign aligners offer a removable appliance that is also completely clear, giving you ultimate discretion throughout your treatment. The aligners fit over the top of your own teeth and should not impact your speech or feel uncomfortable. With this treatment, the time it takes to complete varies on a grander scale than others, as it depends on how much your teeth need to move. How far they need to move to settle into their new positions will determine how many sets of aligners you need to wear, and this will dictate how long your treatment is. Each set of aligners needs to be worn for around two weeks.
Say goodbye to discoloration
Certain lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol and tea and not brushing your teeth properly can lead to your teeth becoming stained. These yellow or brown stains can leave people feeling deflated when they see their smile, embarrassed when they speak to other people and to look older than they really are. Teeth whitening treatments are becoming more and more popular and you can either have your dental professional whiten them for you in your practice, or they could suggest a home-kit for you to use.
