Do You Want To Improve Your Smile?

Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to improve your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you look and feel better about your smile and even change how people see you.

Some people are self-conscious about their teeth because they don’t like how they look or feel. Others may have experienced dental trauma or an accident that damaged their teeth. Whatever your reason for considering cosmetic dentistry, Cherry Trees Dental has the solution.

Cosmetic dentistry is an art form that requires both science and an artistic eye to create beautiful results. The dentist will work closely with you to determine what you want from your smile. This can include anything from straightening your teeth to changing their color or shape.

The dentist will examine your teeth and make any necessary repairs before beginning the cosmetic process. Once this is complete, they’ll take an impression of your teeth so they can fabricate a mold or model for the rest of the treatment plan.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty that focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, and bites. Cosmetic dentists use a variety of techniques to achieve these results, including:

  • Tooth-coloured fillings
  • Crowns
  • Veneers (thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of teeth)
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Dental Implants
  • Invisalign
  • Bridges

Cosmetic Dentistry Costs

The cost of cosmetic dentistry can vary widely, depending on the complexity of your case. The average cost for a single tooth veneer can be around £350 per tooth for resin veneers and £750 for porcelain veneers,. But if you need more extensive work like crowns or bridges or orthodontic treatment the price can depend on the complexity of the treatment. For example, Invisalign® clear braces are often more expensive than traditional braces due to the specialized trays and retainers that have to be worn throughout treatment.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening removes surface discoloration from teeth and makes them appear whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening can be achieved by many methods, including in-office bleaching sessions or at-home over-the-counter products. Whatever method you choose, it will help your teeth appear much brighter than they have ever been!

Invisalign™ Treatment

Invisalign treatment is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. It uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth in a series of steps over a period of months.

Invisalign can help you achieve your smile goals with comfort and style. The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners custom-made for you by our orthodontist. These aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable plastic that you wear over your teeth and are virtually invisible. You can take them out when eating and cleaning, but otherwise, they stay on your teeth all day long, which means no one else will know that you’re wearing braces.

The best part about Invisalign is that it’s nearly invisible. You don’t have to worry about others seeing your metal braces, making it a great solution for adults who want straighter teeth without attracting unwanted attention.

Invisalign treatment consists of wearing removable aligners that gradually realign your teeth, moving them into their ideal position. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before being replaced by the next set in the series until you achieve your desired result.

Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. If you have one or more missing teeth, you will likely be able to benefit from dental implants.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic material that are bonded to your teeth. They are custom designed for each patient based on their smile goals and desires for the finished product. These veneers can be used to correct chips or cracks in teeth and close spaces between teeth.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding (also known as dental bonding or cosmetic bonding) is a non-invasive treatment that uses resin to restore the shape of your teeth. Composite resin is bonded to the surface of the tooth to repair small chips, cracks or gaps. It’s a very popular treatment because it requires no anaesthetic or drilling, so it’s a pain-free and cost-effective treatment option.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth rehabilitation is a combination of restorative and cosmetic dentistry designed to improve the appearance of your smile and create more confidence.

There are several different types of full-mouth rehabilitation, including:

Crowns – Crowns are caps made to fit over a damaged tooth. They can be made from gold, porcelain, or other materials. Crowns can be used to strengthen decayed teeth or replace missing teeth.

Fillings – Fillings close up the space where tooth decay has occurred. Fillings can be made from gold, composite resin, or porcelain.

Bridges – Bridges replace missing teeth by connecting two natural teeth together with crowns on both sides of the gap. A dental bridge is often used when one or more teeth have been lost due to injury or decay.

Dental treatments such as porcelain veneers, dental implants, crowns, tooth whitening and more can help give you a beautiful smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry after braces?

After your braces are removed, you may have some staining and discoloration in your smile. Cosmetic dentists can help make your teeth look whiter, brighter and more uniform.

My tooth is badly broken – what can I do?

If you have a badly broken tooth, you need to see your dentist as soon as possible. A cracked or chipped tooth is more likely to become infected than a normal one. If an infection gets into the root of the tooth, it will be very difficult to treat and may cause permanent damage.

If you chip or crack a tooth, try not to touch it at all until you see your dentist. The best way to protect your damaged tooth is by using an over-the-counter mouthguard that fits over the damaged area. This will stop you from chewing on the damaged area and will help keep your mouth clean until you get treatment.

How do I know which cosmetic treatment is right for me?

The best way to know which cosmetic treatment is right for you depends on what type of results you want to achieve. If you want a brighter white smile then teeth whitening may be right for you. If you have gaps between your teeth or wear braces but still have crooked teeth after treatment, then composite bonding or veneers may be right for you. If you have missing teeth due to injury or disease, then dental implants might work well for you. Best is to have a consultation with your dentist so they can advise the right treatment options for you.
