You may have noticed the proliferation of cosmetic treatments over the last few years. Whether it be in the papers, magazines or on one of the countless TV makeover shows that fill the TV schedules. This is mainly because these cosmetic treatments have become more affordable and more available over the last few years. The same is true for cosmetic dentistry.
The purpose of a cosmetic treatment is to improve the aesthetic appearance as opposed to repairing or improving the quality and condition of the teeth, yet it is cosmetic treatments that have the biggest impact on the teeth and on the self-confidence of the patient.
Of all the cosmetic treatments it is probably teeth whitening that is the most widely used and well-known. This is available in almost all dental surgeries across the UK and can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of the teeth. Whitening works buy bleaching any discoloured or stained areas of the tooth enamel to make them look brighter, more uniform in colour and healthier. The result is that the smile looks better and you look younger. Teeth whitening treatments are very affordable and start at as little as £60.
Other cosmetic treatments include dental veneers. These can completely transform the appearance of the teeth and make the smile appear completely different. Although veneers can be expensive, they will last for up to twenty years and will have incredible effects on the self-esteem of patients.
