More often than not, adults will put off going to their dental practice for a variety of reasons. They have work or family commitments, or they are simply just too busy. At Plowman & Partners we encourage you to take your dental hygiene seriously, to help prevent more complicated issues from arising in the future and to ensure that you have a smile that you are proud of. Our dentist in Marylebone offers a range of treatments that will keep your teeth strong and healthy as well as looking their best. If you are not satisfied with certain aspects of your smile or feel that you could benefit from a bit of a makeover, then we advise that you book a consultation appointment with one of our practitioners to discuss what you wish to change. Consultation appointments can be made online or over the phone at a time that is convenient to you. At these appointments our practitioners will be able to advise you on which treatments will be the most beneficial to your circumstances and explain to you what will happen throughout your treatment.
A range of treatments to straighten out your smile
Unfortunately, when your adult teeth come through they often do so at an angle. You may be lucky and have every single tooth aligned as it should be, but for those of you who have gaps between your teeth or suffer from overcrowding and overlapping it can be difficult to smile with confidence. At our dentist in Marylebone we have a variety of appliances that can align your teeth correctly, meaning that you can take the time to choose the treatment that is the right one for you. In cases where severe misalignment is present it is likely that you will require a traditional fixed appliance. This treatment consists of having brackets attached to the surfaces of your teeth that are connected to one another with a thin wire. This wire is tightened throughout your treatment and will push and pull your teeth into their new, straightened positions over a twenty-four month period.
In some cases, people are only dissatisfied with the straightness of their front teeth. These teeth can be aligned using alternative treatment options, including an almost invisible one. This treatment involves someone wearing a series of clear plastic aligners that have been custom made for their needs. This treatment can be carried out in a much shorter time than other appliances and often takes less than twelve months to complete.
What about whitening?
Our dentist in Marylebone can not only help you with straightening your teeth, but keeping them white and stain-free too. Discolouration can be caused by all sorts of things such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee and alcohol and even occurs naturally over time too as your teeth age. At Plowman & Partners we provide teeth whitening treatments that can be carried out by one of our professionals in our practice, or you can be in control of your own treatment and choose to whiten your teeth at home instead. If you opt for the latter, one of our practitioners will guide you through the entire process and be on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
