When you look at yourself in the mirror or photos, do you dislike the appearance of your smile? If you do, you’re not alone. Disliking your own smile is a common problem faced by many.
While chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and crooked teeth can all contribute to confidence issues around your smile, the good news is that there are ways to fix these issues.
Several great cosmetic dental treatments can improve the appearance of your smile while giving you a vital self-esteem boost. And once you get the smile of your dreams, the world’s your oyster!
In this guide, we’ll discuss five of the most popular smile-enhancing dental treatments offered at Harley Private Dental —many of which we can use together to achieve the perfect look.
The position of your teeth can cause several issues. An overcrowded smile may mean teeth are bunched together and crooked. On the other hand, if you have too much space along the jaw, your smile will have gaps, and your teeth may also become twisted.
In addition to causing you to dislike your smile, the uneven spread of your teeth provides plaque the perfect spots to hide, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
The position of your teeth also affects your ability to close your mouth correctly. Bite issues can cause jaw problems, and you may also experience speech difficulties.
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that straightens your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, it’s removable, making eating and brushing your teeth easier.
Treatment lengths vary from six months to around two years. Nobody will notice the discreet aligners during the process as they’ll hide in plain sight. The smooth plastic aligners are comfortable and durable, making them ideal for constant wear.
If your teeth are discoloured and stained, you may smile with your lips sealed tight. Enlighten is a teeth whitening treatment that gradually brightens your smile from the comfort of your home.
This safe and convenient treatment uses powerful professional hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to lift the colour of your teeth to a Vita B1, the most natural white achievable.
Before you whiten your smile, we’ll check the health of your teeth and create custom whitening trays to safely apply the gels. Each treatment takes around two weeks to complete, and you can top up your treatment in the future to maintain the results.
For damaged, stained, and slightly misaligned smiles, dental veneers are a versatile option. Veneers are fine porcelain shells covering the front and sides of your teeth, visibly improving your smile. Once in place, you’ll have a bright, uniform smile you’ll love.
The dental veneer placement procedure is normally performed in two stages. First, we’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This helps make space for your custom-made veneers. Once the lab has skillfully crafted the veneers, we’ll bond them in position.
Composite bonding is a simple, cost-effective way to improve damaged, discoloured, or misshapen teeth. The treatment is quick and painless—you won’t even need an anaesthetic.
Once we’ve identified the areas of your smile you’d like to change, we’ll apply a composite resin directly to the teeth. This is then moulded until it seamlessly blends into your tooth, repairing the defect. Finally, we’ll use a special light to harden the resin.
If you’ve either lost a tooth, or have one that’s severely damaged, dental implants are the ultimate replacement option. These titanium posts act as new roots for the lifelike replacement teeth we’ll make for you.
The procedure involves several stages spread over a few months. Before we can place your final custom-made tooth, your implant needs to fuse to the jaw bone.
Implants last a lifetime and provide unparalleled support for single replacement crowns or complete dentures. They’ll give you the confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and smile.
When replacing multiple teeth, we can use the revolutionary All-on-4 method or place implanted dentures.
Whatever you dislike about your smile, we can fix it. We offer a full range of innovative cosmetic dental procedures that will make you love your smile again.
