All of us can get the look we want, to make us look as good as the stars on the television.

If your teeth are in fairly good nick, you may get away with just bleaching your teeth, either at home or at the dentists; there are some amazing whitening toothpastes around too. If however, your teeth are discolored, cracked and with gaps appearing, you can opt for veneers, crowns or dental bonding- all guaranteed to get your mouth back into shape. There is also no excuse for having some teeth missing either. Dental implants have become common place at dentist these days and reasonably priced too and combined with a crown or a bridge, they are a strong alternative to what was there before, in some cases, stronger. They can also be used in conjunction with modern, natural looking dentures, holding them firm in the mouth. So come on, put that smile back on your face and get along to your dentist for a chat about the range of cosmetic dentistry.

No matter how crooked or misaligned your teeth are, your dentist can help restore them to a state of natural looking straightness. Teeth which are out of place or a bite that is not quite symmetrical can all be dealt with by the fitting of a brace; still the most effective way to straighten teeth that is available in British dental surgeries.
Braces consist of a series of metal brackets which are attached to your teeth. These brackets have metal wires threaded through them which your dentist can adjust to pull your teeth into the required positions to give you a perfectly aligned smile. This can be achieved at regular appointments in the surgery where your dentist will make the necessary adjustments.
Braces are worn, on average, for about two years but it really depends on what needs to be achieved in the mouth as to how long you will need to wear it for. They can be difficult to clean and some people worry about food getting trapped within all the brackets and wires. But it really just takes a little extra effort and you will find that you are soon used to your new routine.
Some people find them a little unsightly to look at, but just imagine what your teeth will look like once the treatment is finished! You will be able to feel comfortable in your skin and confident about the look of your smile thanks to the work done by the brace. If you have any anxieties about the length of the treatment or whether it will be painful then you should talk to your Weybridge dentist as he or she will be able to give you all of the relevant information.

Everyone is familiar with braces in one form or another. Depending on your age you may have very contrasting views to braces. Older patients may remember the old style metal train-track braces that weren’t particularly attractive to look at. However, younger patients may be more familiar with the new generation of braces, which have used technology to make a vast improvement in treatment.
Traditional metal braces, just like modern braces, were used to manipulate the teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position. They did this by applying pressure with a system of wires and brackets. Not only were they not very attractive but they were also quite uncomfortable and treatment seemed to last forever. Some patients were required to wear these braces for as long as three years as well as suffer the pain of extractions prior to treatment.
Modern braces have addressed many of these concerns to provide patients with a much more pleasant and short-term experience of braces. Modern braces such as the Inman aligner can show results in as little as six weeks in some cases and are also completely removable, although it must be said they are not suitable for all patients. There is also the option to have invisible braces that are made from clear plastic. Invisalign braces are almost completely invisible when in the mouth and capable of producing stunning results in 18 months on average.
Damon braces resemble the old style braces but are much smaller and more discreet. They have also been specially designed to not require tightening, which removes the need for the regular and painful tightening appointments not so fondly remembered by many former brace wearers. To find out more about these treatments and the many others that are available, consult a Weybridge dentist who will be able to tell you which one of these orthodontic treatments is most suitable to straighten your teeth.
