If you’re like most people, chances are that there are certain aspects of your appearance that you’re not completely satisfied with. Some people want to lose a few pounds, some wish they had a little more (or a little less!) hair, but probably the most common thing people want to improve about their appearance is their smile.
Teeth are one of the first things other people will notice about you, and having a perfect smile can make a huge difference to a person’s self-confidence. Sadly, very few of us will ever have a flawless set of teeth without a little help from their dentist. There are an increasing number of affordable cosmetic dental procedures which can make a massive difference to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a popular method of giving your teeth the ideal colour and shape. A small porcelain cap is placed over your existing teeth, giving them the appearance and functionality of a normal healthy tooth. This can be a great way of reshaping and whitening your teeth to get them looking just the way you want.
Dental implants are another popular method used to fill any gaps in your smile. Most of us will lose a tooth at some point in our lives, and modern dental technology means that they can be replaced with permanent, fully functioning replacement. The process involved a small metal rod being attached to the jaw, to which a single denture or multiple dentures are attached. This functions exactly like a normal tooth, and can last upwards of 20 years if properly cared for.
Just because you weren’t born with your ideal smile doesn’t mean you can’t have it – all it takes is a little work from a skilled professional and you’ll find it impossible to wipe the smile of your face!
