How cosmetic dentistry can improve facial aesthetics

Here at Identity Smile, we are proud of the number of cosmetic dental treatments that we offer to enhance facial aesthetics and improve the lives of our patients. Our experienced team understands that feeling happy and confident in your smile can go a long way and have an impact on your overall appearance. 

We’ve put together just some of the ways that cosmetic dentistry can improve facial aesthetics and why, if you’re not satisfied with your smile, you should consider cosmetic dental treatment. 

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a number of treatments that are designed to improve the aesthetics of your smile. It could be one singular cosmetic dental treatment that transforms your smile or it could be several treatments combined to create the desired look. Cosmetic dentistry may benefit your oral health but its sole purpose is to the appearance of your smile, which can enhance the aesthetics of your whole face.

What treatments are classed as cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry differs from general dentistry, which cares for the health of your smile rather than the appearance and usually includes more ‘simple’ procedures. There are many cosmetic dental treatments that we are proud to provide at Identity Smile, all of which can improve your facial aesthetics and boost your confidence. 

Here are just some of the cosmetic dental treatments our knowledgeable team can perform:

  • Smile Makeover

A smile makeover combines a number of cosmetic treatments to completely redesign your smile, improving its health and appearance. It is a full dental makeover, addressing each individual dental concern the patient has and correcting it.

  • Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of material that is placed over a tooth to improve the aesthetics. It can cover discolourations and teeth that are worn down, chipped or broken. Porcelain veneers enhance the appearance of your natural smile.

  • Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a simple cosmetic dental procedure that can usually be completed in one sitting. It involves reshaping or repairing chipped teeth and closing gaps between them. A material called composite is used and you can see results on the same day.

  • Gum Depigmentation or Gum Bleaching

Usually, gum tissue appears pink in colour. However, there are some cases of gum depigmentation that result in dark spots appearing in the gums. Although there is no cause for concern, this can knock your self-confidence. Gum depigmentation is also known as gum lightening or bleaching and lightens the appearance of dark gums.

We provide an array of other cosmetic dental treatments that will enhance the appearance of your smile. To learn more about the cosmetic dental treatments our team specialise in at Identity Smile, please click here.

  • Gummy Smiles

Gummy smile correction surgery helps to reduce the gumline. This extends the length of the teeth, improving their appearance. Gummy smile correction is for patients who desire a more balanced smile that highlights more of their teeth.

By making minor changes to the shape and contour of the gums, the appearance of your smile can be radically transformed by elongating short teeth, giving a healthier look to your gums.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry comes with a wide range of benefits, such as boosting your confidence. Before treatment, you may have been afraid to smile. After receiving treatment at our practice in London, you’ll have the confidence to show off a smile that you’re proud of. Cosmetic dentistry also means that if you have a special event coming up, such as a wedding, you can prepare for this event without feeling insecure about your appearance or smile. 

Minor dental issues can also cause issues such as limiting the food we eat. When you correct even just the most minor health issues through cosmetic dentistry, you will benefit from strengthening your bite and limiting the risk of infections.

Why are more and more people considering cosmetic dental treatment?

Research undertaken by the Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors here, discovered that 40% of the British public are unhappy with their teeth and 48% would consider cosmetic dental treatment. 

With the rise of social media, young adults have been considering cosmetic dental treatment to improve their facial aesthetics. As it has become more popular, treatments are slowly becoming more affordable, with many practices like Identity Smile offering ways to spread payments over time. Technology is also improving to the point where results can look more natural than ever, along with the advancement in materials and sedation techniques.
