Our belief at Senova Dental Studios in Watford is that all dentistry should be cosmetic, that means we believe all dentistry should look great. Typically cosmetic dentistry will involve the following aspects:
If your oral health is in good condition then your teeth and gums will look healthy, this will mean you have an overall good cosmetic appearance. Once you have good oral health we can then begin to look at individual concerns that you might have about your teeth, and start to address those concerns.
In days gone by the only way to straighten crooked teeth was by using metal "train track" braces. Modern dentistry now allows us to use rapid and sometimes almost invisible orthodontic techniques to straighten your smile, this has revolutionised cosmetic dentistry and allowed adults to have orthodontics also.
As well as orthodontics we may consider using dental veneers or dental crowns to straighten Crooked teeth, particularly if you don’t like the colour and/or shape of your original teeth.
This can be done with either dentures, dental bridges or dental implants. Each of these options has particular advantages and disadvantages which will always be explained to you at length prior to beginning any treatment. Replacing missing teeth has health benefits as well as cosmetic benefits.
Depending on how dark the original teeth are we can often use teeth whitening to lighten dark teeth. In extreme cases we may need to use dental veneers or dental crowns to whiten teeth, especially if the original teeth are broken down, worn or require replacement for any other reason.
For minor chips, pits and breakages we can repair them with instant dental veneers or dental bonding. This is where a small amount of tooth coloured material is bonded to your natural tooth while you wait. In extreme cases, a dental veneer or dental crown may be required if the chip or breakage is more extensive.
