Which is why many dentist are now branching out in the field of dentistry known as cosmetic dentistry, so called because this field of dentistry concerns itself with the appearance of your mouth and not necessarily the health of your mouth.

This involves your dentist attaching a titanium screw (implant) into the jawbone where your missing tooth previously was, this implant replaces the tooth root and lays the foundations for a ceramic replacement tooth to then be attached permanently, eliminating the need for uncomfortable dentures or bridges.

Teeth whitening or bleaching

By far the most common and sort after treatment is that of teeth whitening. This painless procedure involves several visits to the dentist where they will apply a harmless chemical to discoloured teeth. The aim being to bring back the natural whiteness of your teeth.

Smile makeover

This treatment is becoming ever more popular with people that have several issues with the appearance of their mouth and teeth and thus their smile. A full smile makeover is exactly what it says on the tin, whereas your dentist will apply several methods and techniques such as the ones above to give you a perfect smile.
