Is cosmetic dentistry for me?

Cosmetic DentistrySome people aren’t fortunate enough to look in the mirror and be happy with their smile. This can be for various reasons, such as crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth, hereditary conditions or lack of an effective oral hygiene routine, which can all be factors for an unsatisfactory smile.

According to the Oral Health Foundation’s National Smile Month survey in 2016, one in four British adults admitted to not brushing their teeth twice a day. In fact, one in 10 admit to not regularly brushing their teeth at all. If you took a moment to think about your own oral health, are you doing all you can do to ensure a healthy mouth?

In fact, our overall well-being is affected significantly by our oral health. Having problems with our teeth can cause issues with basic everyday tasks, such as eating or talking. Missing or misaligned teeth can cause aesthetic problems, perhaps a sunken face look from a deteriorated jawbone.

For most of us, the damage has already been done and we now have to deal with the consequences of the bad habits of our younger years. Many of us have discoloured teeth, are missing teeth or have other problems with the position or condition of our teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry can help rectify these problems. Attending one of the excellent quality cosmetic dentists in the UK, such as Blue Sky in Northern Ireland, can be the first step to significantly better oral health and a much happier you overall.

What’s on offer?

A good cosmetic dentist will offer a wide range of treatments to completely renovate and rejuvenate a tired or broken smile. This can range from quick aesthetic fixes to extensive and complete overhauls of the structure of your mouth and teeth.

One option that has recently become very popular is veneers. This is an option that can make a dramatic visible difference to your teeth without being too much of a major treatment, which is why many people opt for them.

Veneers are a purely cosmetic treatment that, put simply, will give you a better-looking smile. Veneers are often favoured by Hollywood stars, as they can create the impression of perfect teeth, without the long process of wearing a brace.
