A New Year refresh with cosmetic dentistry in Surbiton.
As 2018 starts to come to a close and we prepare ourselves for Christmas meals and family togetherness, it can also be an opportunity not only to reflect on the past year, but also to think about the year ahead too.
Some of us will be looking to make radical changes in the new year, whilst others will be looking for small improvements in various areas of their life.
Sometimes it is the small things that can make a difference, so with this in mind, in our last blog of the year we take a look at some of the cosmetic procedures available at the Confidental Clinic in Surbiton, that can give your appearance a real lift.
For the small, but annoying tooth chips that we often get through wear and tear but which don’t really warrant a longer procedure, cosmetic bonding is an ideal solution. This can help to smooth out those small chips and can be applied and shaped without the need for any local anaesthetic. Bonding can also be used to reshape teeth and even close gaps in some cases.
Although this does require a small surgical procedure, this is a once only treatment that can permanently reshape your gums. This is ideal for those who have a ‘gummy smile’, where the gums grow further down the teeth than is normal. In most cases we are able to use a laser to perform this procedure which also helps to cauterise the wound as it removes excess gum tissue. A one off treatment that can dramatically improve a smile!
Although we can provide a wide range of orthodontic systems, including the very popular Invisalign, Damon braces are ideal where any correction needed is relatively minor. In just a short period of time, those slightly crooked teeth that you have always thought spoiled your smile, can be a thing of the past.
Botox and dermal fillers
If the years have started to take their toll, and those pesky lines and wrinkles are starting to appear, Botox and dermal fillers can be used to give your skin a younger looking appearance. The facial aesthetics team at our Surbiton practice are fully trained and qualified and you can be assured that you are in safe and sensible hands.
Finally, it is all but impossible to discuss your smile makeover without mentioning the ever popular teeth whitening procedure. This treatment offers a great way to make a real difference to your smile with a fast acting and non invasive procedure. You will be provided with whitening trays that are made from impressions that we take of your teeth, which means a greater degree of comfort and safety than an ‘off the shelf’ product. We will discuss the degree of whiteness that you hope to achieve and prepare your treatment accordingly. Within a couple of weeks of this ‘at home’ treatment, you can have a fantastic looking, whiter smile!
As we mentioned earlier in this blog, this will be our last one for the year, so once again, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our Surbiton dental patients a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. If you wish to make an appointment for the new year before we close for the Christmas break, please call us on 020 8399 1291 and our team will be pleased to help.
