Cosmetic Dentistry: A Complete Guide

There was a time in the not-so-distant past that cosmetic dentistry was a pipe dream for anyone but the rich and famous. But thanks to advances in technology and the greater accessibility of a multitude of treatments, cosmetic dentistry is now a great option for anyone looking to enhance their smile. This article explains what cosmetic dentistry is and introduces you to many of the treatments the team at London City Smiles can assist you with. 


What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a broad range of services that are designed to help improve your smile and resolve various issues related to your oral health. Rectifying cosmetic issues also leads to an improvement in your self-esteem, which is often one of the primary motivations for considering treatment in the first place! 

Research from Bupa Dental Care found that one out of every three adults is unhappy with their smile. The great news is that cosmetic dentistry gives you the opportunity to do something about it as it includes the following treatments: 


Teeth whitening 

Our teeth whitening service is arguably one of our most popular cosmetic treatments. Our Enlighten process starts with an initial appointment before taking you through the necessary steps to brighten your teeth. Within a short space of time, you will have the incredible results that you have dreamed of and be proud of your natural-looking white teeth. 


Teeth stain removal 

Discolouration on your enamel dulls the vibrancy of your smile and often causes people to retreat into their shells. There are lots of reasons why your teeth might be stained, be it ageing, consuming acidic drinks, or smoking. At London City Smiles, we offer teeth stain removal treatment that usually doesn’t take longer than an hour. As a result, you will have much brighter teeth and better oral hygiene. What’s not to like about that?!


Tooth contouring 

Although not as popular as teeth whitening, tooth contouring is another excellent way of boosting your self-esteem. The treatment enables you to change the shape and contours of your teeth, which will ultimately improve the whole appearance of your smile. Our experts work by removing small layers of the tooth’s surface enamel so your teeth are in much better condition and you no longer have to shy away from the camera. 


Dental implants 

Opting for dental implants is an excellent solution for permanent tooth loss. They work thanks to small titanium screws that form an artificial tooth root before a dental crown is attached. Your new tooth will be securely attached to your jawbone, and it is a much better and more durable solution than traditional dentures.
