Sadly, it’s true that a lot of us Brits are camera shy and go to great lengths to avoid photo’s being taken of us at all costs. When it comes to special occasions, greeting friends or holiday snaps, there could be a number of reasons why you choose not to smile. A chipped tooth, discoloured teeth or a gap, are a few of the most common reasons. That said, when it comes to your smile, Manchester residents should know that we have a number of options that will help. Whether you wish to brighten your smile with tooth whitening or replace missing teeth with dental implants, Manchester patients can rely on us for great results.
With Manchester being the ‘selfie’ capital of Europe, it might seem more important than ever to get your smile sorted. So if you’re looking for a cosmetic dentist in the surrounding area such as Didsbury, our dental practice at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics can help. It’s time to stop pursuing those lips and start beaming from ear to ear!
Let’s take a look at 3 ways we can help you to improve your smile so that you can be ‘selfie’ ready in a flash.
Having discolored teeth can be a great embarrassment to many and is one of the main reasons you might feel self-conscious. When it comes to improving your smile, Manchester residents find one of the cheapest and simplest ways to do this is by having your teeth whitened.
It’s important to keep in mind that no one’s teeth are perfectly white naturally. It’s completely normal for our teeth to become a little duller as we age due to the outer enamel wearing away or because of lifestyle factors that cause staining such as drinking a lot of coffee or smoking.
What does it involve?
Bleaching your teeth is an easy process and can be done in one of two ways. You can either have your teeth whitening done with us in-practice or you can do it yourself at home if you prefer. Whichever suits you best.
If you want fast results, then choosing to have your treatment in surgery with our Zoom power laser whitening might be the best choice for you, as it can be done in as little as your lunch hour. Otherwise, night home whitening is another option. Custom trays will be made for you which are filled with bleach and then worn during sleep. However you choose to whiten your smile, Manchester patients can expect slight gum and tooth sensitivity. This is normal and only temporary during treatments. For most people, tooth whitening is an effective way to improve a smile and boost confidence fast.
If you have misaligned, stained, cracked or chipped teeth in Manchester our Didsbury dental practice can help. Veneers offer our patients an easy solution to correcting their smile while delivering great natural looking results. A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is used to cover your tooth in order to mask its original appearance. They are well known for their ease of application, comfort and quick-fix aesthetic appeal.
What does it involve?
Veneers can be made of either resin or porcelain and both have different advantages. Resin veneers are applied easily in just one visit. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are made in a dental laboratory, requiring two visits but are superior to resin veneers because of their durability and more natural looking finish.
During preparation, in order that your veneers fit nicely onto your tooth, a slight amount of enamel will likely need to be removed.
Veneers are a great way to restore the appearance and colour of your teeth and improve your camera confidence.
What if you have unslightly gaps from missing teeth? Often if a tooth is missing (particularly one that is noticeable when smiling) it can cause a person to become extremely shy and self-conscious. That means not only trying to avoid photos but covering their mouth during general conversations.
Thankfully that doesn’t have to be the case. Because of dental implants, Manchester patients have the option to improve both the appearance of their smile, their chewing ability and to preserve the shape of their face, all with implant treatment.
What does it involve?
Having implant treatment involves a few different stages, and can take up to 3-6 months before the final result is achieved due to healing time and bone integration. Placement of the implant itself can take as little as 1 hour. We use a titanium post that’s placed into the jawbone to act as the tooth’s root, then a crown or bridge can then be secured into place, eliminating the gap all together. If you’re considering having dental implants, Manchester residents can be assured that it’s the most successful tooth-replacement option available and with proper care should last a lifetime.
