Cosmetic Dentistry: Is It Something For You in 2012?

Cosmetic Reconstruction by Smile Care Cosmetic Dentists PlymouthFor many people, the dawning of a new year brings a list of resolutions they intend to make to change themselves. For many people they will include things like ‘having a better smile’ or ‘getting my teeth fixed’.

Not every dentist can fulfil those resolutions but here at Smile Care Cosmetic Dentists Plymouth we can!

So what is cosmetic dentistry exactly?

In a nutshell cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that improves the overall aesthetics – or look – of your smile. Known to some as a ‘smile makeover’ and sometimes (because of where cosmetic dentistry first took hold) as the ‘Hollywood smile’. Many celebrities and famous people have had cosmetic work done to their smile –reportedly including Kate Middleton before her wedding last year.

Having a beautiful smile brings many benefits. The most obvious is the boost to a person’s self-esteem. But it’s not just for the famous or wealthy – cosmetic dentistry is available to all.

There’s also a growing acceptance of why people have their smiles fixed following the popularity of TV shows such as Extreme Makeover and Embarrassing Bodies.

Cosmetic dentistry includes teeth straightening, including using clear braces such as Invisalign or Clearstep, porcelain dental veneers, dental crowns, composite white fillings, gum contouring and the replacement of missing teeth with dental bridges, implants and cosmetic dentures. The most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the UK however is teeth whitening.
