Cosmetic dentistry, sometimes referred to as aesthetic dentistry seeks to improve the appearance of the teeth. Although these procedures do have health benefits, they are not primarily used to conserve or rehabilitate the teeth. Tooth whitening sessions, hygiene sessions and polishing all belong in this category, but so do the use of prosthetics like veneers or dental crowns if done for aesthetic purposes. Italian Dentist in London offers full scale of high quality dental treatments at a reasonable price.
You can get your teeth up to 5 shades whiter with tooth whitening sessions. During the procedure, the dentist or dental hygienist will apply tooth whitening gel to your teeth and shine a special light on it that breaks up stains and dissolves them, while being gentle to the tooth enamel. The procedure lasts around 90 minutes, and sometimes can require two visits. The effect lasts for many months, but lifestyle and environment are also a factor.
Veneers are thin porcelain layers that are adhered to the teeth, and with their help, any aspect of the tooth, including shape, size and colour can be modified. This procedure requires multiple visits and sometimes slight modifications to the teeth, but are a permanent solution to aesthetic problems. During the procedure, the teeth are shaped and the veneers are placed on the tooth surfaces permanently. Many Hollywood stars and public figures use veneers for a perfect smile.
Sometimes a missing tooth or a tooth that has been reduced to a stub can really ruin a person’s smile. In these cases, a dental crown can fix the smile and restore proper chewing function. Dental crowns are porcelain caps that resemble the cusps of the teeth, and can go either on top of the tooth stub, or adhered to the tooth next to the crown, so any gap can be restored, even if the tooth is completely missing.
