On the face of it, it seems like a contradiction of terms; how can a brace be cosmetic?
Well, depending on your clinical needs, our dentist in West Byfleet can offer you one of the ever-popular orthodontic tools that may straighten your smile without the issues that accompany traditional metal braces.
Here are some of the cosmetic orthodontics that we offer:
● Invisalign; the invisible aligner that can straighten your teeth in as little as 3 months whilst also being removable!
● Six Month Smiles; a set of fitted, clear braces, which, as the name suggests, can offer you straighter teeth in as little as 6 months.
● The Inman Aligner; a clear retainer that uses a white wire to move the teeth at the front of your mouth with a bit more precision than Invisalign.
● Cfast; an aligner that uses tooth-coloured titanium wires to move the important 6 teeth that are at the front of your mouth.
Your suitability for any of the aforementioned appliances will be determined by our team based on your clinical needs.
A great way to conceal minor gaps, cracks, chips and discolouration, veneers are coverings, typically made from porcelain, that can be placed over the front of your teeth.
They are painless to attach and can be colour-matched to either blend in with your surrounding teeth or whiten them. If cared for correctly, your veneers can last up to and over 15 years and also act as a way to reduce tooth sensitivity.
With veneers, you will have to care for them just as you would your natural teeth and keep an eye out for issues such as gum disease, which can cause them to fall off.
At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we can offer suitable patients dental whitening with the Pola whitening system, which utilises both day and nighttime systems to remove stains caused by red wine and other tannin-based stains. We provide a set of custom-fitted trays for nocturnal use, which ensures that the bleaching agents get enough time to lift the stains off of your teeth.
The process itself can take up to 14 days to work.
Your results may vary based on the level of staining that you have and your general dental hygiene.
And finally, one of the most popular of all cosmetic dental procedures is that of dental implants.
Affixed to your jaw, these small titanium screws act as anchors for prosthetic teeth, allowing you to bite into and chew food without your teeth wobbling. They can be created in any shade of white you wish them to be and blend in seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth.
