With the ever-growing advancements in dental technology, we understand the importance of helping patients making informed decisions with regards to upgrading their smiles. Investing in your teeth is worth it; though you need to spend the time researching your ideal treatments and whether they’ll meet your ultimate smile goals.
In this article, we’ll explain how a cosmetic dentist can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We’ll look into the role of cosmetic dentists, delve into various treatments, and highlight how cosmetic dentistry can transform your teeth – and your life!
A cosmetic dentist focuses on the aesthetic aspects of oral care, enhancing the appearance of teeth and gums to uplift the way our smiles look. While general dentistry focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral diseases, cosmetic dentistry prioritises appearance as well as health. Many cosmetic treatments come with functional benefits as well; ensuring they make the most out of each procedure is all part of what a cosmetic dentist does each day! Here’s a more in-depth look at what a cosmetic dentist’s role entails.
Your cosmetic dentistry process will begin with an in-depth consultation. This is your chance to go over any dental concerns, discuss your goals, and identify specific treatments as part of your tailored transformation plan. Digital imaging can be used to simulate results and make sure you agree with the proposed changes to your smile.
Each procedure undertaken by cosmetic dentists requires the careful implementation of specialised knowledge, skills and techniques throughout. A skilled cosmetic dentist ensures aesthetic treatments align with proper bite alignment, jaw function, and overall oral health.
A great cosmetic dentist will always ensure their patients are comfortable. Many cosmetic dentists offer sedation options for patients who are anxious or undergoing lengthy procedures, ensuring your smile is transformed with minimal stress.
After this, they’ll focus on post-treatment care. This involves providing tailored guidance on oral hygiene practices to help maximise results, as well as scheduling follow-up visits to ensure the ongoing success of the procedure.
Cosmetic dentists offer a wide range of treatment options that can transform your appearance. At Ringway Dental, we are a private dental surgery that specialises in cosmetic and implant dentistry. Here are some of the cosmetic treatments and procedures we offer:
Teeth whitening involves applying a bleaching agent to the teeth. This works to break down surface stains and imperfections, making your smile brighter. At Ringway, we have 3 teeth whitening options available with a combination of at-home and in-surgery treatments – so there’s something to suit all our patients.
Boutique® – £250
Zoom® – £450
Enlighten® – £550
After any teeth whitening treatment, we offer recommendations to help you achieve the best possible outcomes. Avoid staining foods and drinks, maintain good oral hygiene, and consider occasional maintenance treatments to ensure your teeth stay healthy and white.
With composite bonding treatments, a tooth-coloured composite resin is bonded to the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. This can be done in one sitting, but can completely transform how you look! Composite bonding costs begin at £250 per tooth.
Composite veneers are thin, custom-made ‘shells’ designed to encapsulate the teeth and enhance colour, shape and the alignment of your overall smile. Composite veneers start at £400 per tooth, while porcelain veneers begin at £850 per tooth.
While they can improve oral health and functionality, orthodontic treatments are also considered to be cosmetic. They can completely transform smiles, and with an array of subtle and effective modern options available, orthodontics are becoming increasingly popular.
One of our most popular cosmetic options is the Smile Makeover. This comprehensive approach combines various treatments to transform your smile. This may involve multiple visits to the surgery over several weeks or months – depending on the procedures involved. Our Smile Advisors and cosmetic dental team will help you select a combination of treatments, each carefully chosen to optimise your budget and outcomes.
Choosing a cosmetic dentist involves careful consideration of their qualifications, experience and patient testimonials. You should also ensure they uphold a philosophy of care that aligns with your expectations.
The right cosmetic dentist will work to transform your smile to meet your aesthetic goals, whilst also maintaining the lasting function and health of your teeth and gums. Achieving the smile you’ve always wanted can have further benefits to your wellbeing, too. Boosting confidence as you become more comfortable with your appearance, many of our patients find their smile transformations have a lasting positive impact on their everyday lives.
