Can cosmetic dentistry really improve my smile?

Cosmetic dentistry is growing in popularity across the UK. At Burwell Dental Surgery in Cambridge, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, all designed to create the smile you’ve always wanted. Often, this takes far less time and intervention than you’d imagine.

cosmetic-dentistryIn the beginning, cosmetic dentistry was only available to Hollywood celebrities and the ultra-rich. These days, thanks to increasing demand coupled with continuous improvements in techniques and materials used, more people than ever before are reaping the benefits of aesthetic dental treatment. To find out how you could be one of them, read on to learn what cosmetic dentistry could do for you. . .

At our Cambridge surgery we are firmly of the belief that everyone deserves a smile to be proud of. Unfortunately, few people develop a Hollywood-perfect set of teeth. Lifestyle factors, from diet to smoking, fear of the dentist to missing out on orthodontic treatment as a child, can all affect the development and appearance of your adult teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is designed to rectify all of these issues, leaving you with a smile you’ll want to show off to all and sundry.

Cambridge cosmetic dentistry: your choices

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the choice is yours. Whatever your issues with your current smile, a cosmetic dentist will help you to find the perfect treatment to create the smile of your dreams. Your journey begins with a consultation here at our Cambridge practice.

Your cosmetic dentist will take a number of factors into account when drawing up your perfect treatment plan. This will include your lifestyle, your aspirations for treatment, and your facial structure. At our Cambridge clinic we believe that good cosmetic dentistry results in a smile that looks as natural as it does beautiful. There are a number of ways in which we can help you to achieve that.

Popular items on the cosmetic menu at our Cambridge clinic include:

Tooth whitening

Delivered by a dentist, this is a safe, fast, and predictable method of removing stains from your teeth.

Six Month Smiles

Cosmetic braces designed to subtly and rapidly straighten your front teeth.

Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces explored: subtler teeth straightening

Modern cosmetic braces provide a dentist with subtle, fast, and effective ways to straighten your teeth. At Burwell Dental Surgery in Cambridge, we welcome adult patients who would like to improve the alignment of their smile without the need for traditional metal appliances.

Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces

Six Month Smiles are one of the world’s most popular cosmetic brace systems. They are designed for mild to moderate correction of issues with the front teeth – those that are on show when you smile.

six-month-smilesAt our Cambridge dental practice we understand that whilst many adults would like straighter teeth, the thought of traditional metal braces – with treatment times of up to 24 months – can be very off-putting, even stopping you seeking treatment. We believe that everybody deserves a beautiful smile to reflect their true personality, so whether you missed out on orthodontic treatment in your youth, or had treatment only to find that your teeth have moved back to their original position, we encourage you to join us for a Six Month Smiles consultation.

Six Month Smiles braces comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel titanium wires, meaning that they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth for heightened discretion. What’s more, with average treatment times being, as the name suggests, just six months, they are much quicker than traditional orthodontic devices.

Depending on the amount of correction that’s needed – which will be determined during your initial consultation at our Cambridge dental practice – treatment may be even shorter than six months, with some mild cases complete in half that time. Most cases are complete within a nine-month period.

At our Cambridge practice, principal dentist Mabel Saw is a certified Six Month Smiles provider who has treated many happy patients with these braces. So if your current smile is making you frown, why not come in to join her for a consultation?

They will find out what your aspirations for your smile are, what you like and dislike about it currently, and will also take lifestyle factors into account in order to design the unique and perfect smile for you.

It may be that you require just one treatment, or you may benefit from combining two or more from our extensive cosmetic dentistry list. Whatever you decide, your dentist will create you a customised treatment plan so that you know exactly what to expect.

Cosmetic dentistry is all about making choices: choosing to invest in your smile is one of the best decisions you can make, in our opinion, because a beautiful smile speaks volumes about you, and can seriously increase your confidence at home and at work.

Unfortunately, the majority of adults in the UK are in some way dissatisfied with their smile. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in, offering a wealth of ways to improve the way your smile looks, and often providing other health benefits, too.

Your first step on the road to a new smile is to come for a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Cambridge practice. A cosmetic dentist will not only undertake a complete clinical examination, they will also find out a bit about you and what it is you want to achieve from treatment, so that they can create a customised treatment plan designed to give you the smile of your dreams whilst minimally impacting on your lifestyle.

Among some of the popular cosmetic options at our Cambridge dental clinic are:

Teeth whitening

Carried out by a dentist, this is a safe, reliable, and fast way to remove common stains from the teeth. It’s the perfect boost before a special occasion such as a family holiday.

Cosmetic braces

Cosmetic braces straighten your teeth quickly and discreetly. Some treatments take only a few months to complete.

Braces no longer need to mean a metallic smile

Braces remain an excellent way for a dentist or orthodontist to straighten your teeth. However, at Cambridge dental practice Burwell, we understand that many adult patients are faced with a dilemma when it comes to teeth straightening treatment. They desperately wish for straighter teeth, but have absolutely no desire to wear obvious metal appliances.

cosmetic-bracesFortunately, at our Cambridge dental practice, there is a more discreet option available. What if we told you that you can have the straight teeth you’ve so long dreamt of, without the need to wear obvious metal braces? If that sounds too good to be true then read on to discover how for an increasing number of patients this dream is becoming a reality – then discover how you can join them.

Cosmetic braces

Cosmetic braces are a popular choice with adults who want straighter teeth. It goes without saying that straightening your teeth is also beneficial to your dental health, because straighter teeth are that much easier to keep clean. It may surprise you to learn that this can be good for your general health, too.

At our Cambridge practice, we use Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces to discreetly and swiftly straighten your teeth. These appliances are based on traditional brace systems, but have been thoroughly made over and modernised to work both quickly and discreetly.

Six Month Smiles comprise tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires and clear brackets. This means that they are hardly obvious in everyday life, and many people won’t even notice you are having treatment.

As the name suggests, these braces have an average treatment time of six months. In some cases it takes just half that time to straighten your teeth. They work so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those that show when you smile.

Let cosmetic dentistry give you the smile you’ve always dreamt of

Cosmetic dentistry is the area of the profession that focuses on the aesthetic appearance of a smile. Here at Burwell Dental in Cambridge, we believe that everybody deserves a smile that they are proud of. If any aspect of your current smile is preventing you from showing it off in public, read on to discover how we can help. . .

cosmetic dentistryWhat can cosmetic dentistry do for me?

The simplest answer to this question is “whatever you wish”. Long gone are the days when cosmetic dentistry was the preserve of celebrities, footballers’ wives and the super-rich. Thanks to advances in both techniques and materials, it is now accessible to more people than ever before. At our Cambridge dental practice we offer a huge range of cosmetic treatments large and small, all delivered by our highly-experienced team.

If you want to improve the appearance of your smile – and with it boost your self-esteem – your first step should be to book a cosmetic dentistry at our Cambridge dental practice. Your cosmetic dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums and will listen to your concerns, hopes and aspirations for your smile. Factors such as facial structure and hair colour are also taken into consideration to ensure that your beautiful smile looks entirely natural, whilst also being as unique as you are.

Some patients at our Cambridge clinic require just one treatment – a quick course of teeth whitening, or a single tooth restored with a cosmetic crown, for example – whilst others benefit from combining two or more treatments from our extensive cosmetic dentistry menu. The choice really is yours.

At the end of your consultation, your dentist will draw up a treatment plan detailing your future appointments, the projected length of treatment and the associated costs, and the order in which treatments will be carried out should you opt for more than one.

Cosmetic dentistry explored: teeth whitening options

Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry, and when carried out by a dentist or hygienist it is a safe and effective way to boost the appearance of your smile. At Burwell Dental in Cambridge we currently offer teeth whitening treatment.

cosmetic-dentistry-cambridgeshireWhen you think about what your teeth go through in a typical day, it’s hardly surprising that they can become stained. Drinks such as coffee or red wine, lifestyle factors such as smoking cigarettes or cigars, some medicines and even some medical conditions can result in staining and discolouration of the teeth. Some people also find that as they get older their teeth lose their natural sheen. Teeth whitening with a dentist is a safe and effective way to get that wow factor back, and it’s easy to see why this treatment is one of the cornerstones of cosmetic dentistry.

At our Cambridge dental practice we believe that everybody deserves a beautiful smile to be proud of. If you are interested in lightening the colour of your teeth, we invite you to join us for a cosmetic dentistry consultation.

During this consultation, a member of our cosmetic dentistry team will assess the type of staining on your teeth to work out if whitening treatment is the best option. It is suitable for most adults and works well on most types of stain.

Teeth that are permanently discoloured, and those with large fillings or other restorations won’t be altered by teeth whitening, but do not despair; the extensive cosmetic dentistry menu at our Cambridge practice provides your dentist with a number of other solutions, including porcelain veneers and tooth-coloured fillings, inlays or onlays.

Six Month Smiles: discreet braces for adults

Does the mere word “braces” make you balk, picturing traditional metal appliances worn by teenagers? Then you are far from alone. At Burwell Dental in Cambridge, however, we offer a far more discreet option for adults who want straighter teeth. Called Six Month Smiles, these discreet appliances are designed for mild to moderate correction of the front teeth.

six month smilesSix Month Smiles are 21st Century cosmetic braces, designed to move your teeth both quickly and subtly. At our Cambridge dental practice we believe that everyone deserves a beautiful smile that they can be proud of. If crooked, crowded or misaligned front teeth are preventing you taking pride in your smile, why not book a consultation to find out how we can help?

How treatment works

Braces do remain, in many cases, the most efficient and predictable method of straightening teeth. They afford your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over each tooth’s movement, and thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, they no longer need to be made out of obvious metal.

As their name hints, the average treatment time with Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces is – you’ve guessed it! – six months. Remember, though, that this is the average duration of treatment. Many cases are complete even sooner, sometimes in half that time.

When you come to our Cambridge practice we will examine you to assess if this is the most appropriate treatment to suit your needs. Principal dentist Mabel Saw is a certified Six Month Smiles provider, and she will let you know how long you will need to wear your braces for.

Six Month Smiles comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, meaning that they blend into your mouth and are far less noticeable than standard metal appliances. Your hygienist will give you advice on how to clean your teeth during treatment, to avoid your braces getting stained.
