You’re never too old to have a little touch-up work done, especially on your teeth. Thanks to improvements in modern dentistry over the years, we now have a multitude of options for treatment to help your smile last longer.
If you’re interested in buffing up those pearly whites, then here’s a few cosmetic treatments that our dentist in Marylebone can offer you.
First up on the list is our dental implantation procedure. This involves the fitting of a prosthetic tooth, either porcelain or ceramic, into the section of your gum line that needs improving. This can be done to fill in gaps or to replace cracked teeth and those that are damaged beyond repair.
We use a sterile Titanium screw to bond the tooth to your jawbone and, over time, the bone cavity should heal back over the inserted prosthetic to help create a sturdy natural looking replacement.
Next on our list of cosmetic procedures, available from our dentist in Marylebone, is crowns. We use a prosthetic cap to entirely cover your tooth. Primarily we use it for covering damage, but it can also be used to strengthen or aesthetically improve the look of your teeth.
At Plowman and Partners Private Dentistry, our talented team will provide a range of natural looking crowns to give you a more natural looking smile.
Similar to crowns, veneers are a prosthetic cap that we use to cover up cracks, chips, damage and staining that can build up on your teeth over time. First, we will normally remove a layer of enamel from your teeth and, inside this little divot, we will fit the cap into place with an adhesive, that is later cured and solidified to keep the new cover in place.
It’s a relatively non-invasive procedure, but there can be some mild discomfort during the enamel removal stage.
If you want to get that Hollywood white smile, then you can’t go wrong with a whitening session from one of our team. We provide in practice sessions or kits to use at home if your schedule isn’t free for an appointment.
Last on our list is our invisible braces. These are essentially a custom moulded see-through brace that places a small but gentle amount of pressure onto your teeth. Over time this will cause the crooked parts to realign themselves in a straighter position.
The process of being fitted for these braces is pretty high-tech, as we will use LEDs or lasers to map out the topography of your teeth. We will then use this to create a 3D image of your teeth that we can manipulate to show you how we will realign the specific area being worked on.
This is then used to create a mouthguard that you will have to wear for around 12 months, as your teeth start to straighten out.
These are just a few of the various cosmetic treatments we have available at our practice. Just ask one of our team on your next visit to see how we can help you improve that smile.
