Recent research by the British Dental Health Foundation and Invisalign shows that one in four people in the UK are unhappy with their teeth. In fact, up to 70% of us are so unhappy with them that we avoid smiling in photographs all together!
When you consider that, after our eyes, a healthy smile is one of the most noted features when we first meet someone, it’s understandable why many people are self-conscious. A smile creates an instant impression that will stay in mind for a long time.
It’s not just at work or in our personal life where we may notice a beautiful smile. Today with constant access to social media and the internet we are bombarded with pictures of celebrities and their gorgeous teeth.
Don’t feel as though the perfect smile is only available to those with lots of time, money (or fame) on their side. Luckily, the ever developing field of cosmetic dentistry means that a beautiful smile is now a possibility for anyone – regardless of age, budget or the current condition of your teeth.
At Blagreaves, we are proud to offer our patients a number of high quality cosmetic treatments to help you get the smile you truly want. The majority of these are highly comfortable and can be performed quickly during a standard appointment.
Whether your teeth are crooked, stained, missing or overcrowded the list of possible improvements is endless and vast.
While the benefits of a sparkling, straight and healthy looking smile are obvious to see, the changes in personal self-confidence can also be significant. If you have one or more broken teeth we could cover them with veneers and lumineers and crowns. The replacement of any missing teeth with bridges or dental implants could restore your ability to function comfortably on a daily basis-removing any limitations on your diet.
Orthodontic tooth straightening can greatly help to improve overall oral health as aligning the teeth makes them easier to clean – dramatically cutting your risks of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. Crooked and misaligned teeth can be quickly straightened with a variety of braces and aligners, some removable and virtually invisible. With bespoke straightening treatments now planned in advance, the patient benefits from greatly reduced and often more affordable treatment.
Depending on your needs and desires, a smile makeover can be subtle or dramatic. Tooth whitening is highly popular as it is one of the most simple and quick ways to brighten a smile. Another effective way to transform your smile is to replace any old amalgam fillings with tooth coloured composite. A mouth-full of fillings completely hidden as if they are not even there!
So, however you’d like to change or improve your teeth, please don’t just assume it isn’t possible. Don’t feel the need to tolerate a smile you are embarrassed or ashamed of. The right treatment really is there for everyone. You just need to make the first step!
