Today, everyone wants a Hollywood smile that emanates youth and attractiveness. Here at SW9 Dental, we work with all our patients on an individual basis using a range of options for the best possible smile.
The hallmarks of a Hollywood smile are teeth that are uniform, straight and brightly white. The great news is that no one has to be a celebrity to enjoy looking and feeling at their most attractive best. Here, we explore some of the choices that can be made for a great new look including orthodontics Stockwell, teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Orthodontics Stockwell refers to a wide range of treatments that are used for the purposes of straightening the teeth. It is common to have teeth that are crooked, protruding or overcrowded. Some people are lucky enough to have these issues corrected when they are teenagers or young adults, but many do not have the opportunity.
Fortunately, there is availability of orthodontics Stockwell for patients of all ages. Traditional braces can be used to fix almost any issue related to the alignment of the teeth, and they deliver very successful results. They are made up of metal wires that are fixed in place using brackets and are worn as a permanent fixture until the treatment has been completed.
Some patients are unsure about the idea of wearing traditional braces due to the fact that they may feel a little self-conscious. This is especially likely to be the case if they are getting their teeth fixed later in life. This type of patient may benefit from choosing the alternative option that is invisible braces.
As the name suggests, invisible braces are undetectable by others so no one will know that the patient is having orthodontic treatment. They are trays (or aligners) that are worn over the teeth for several months. The aligners are swapped every few weeks as the teeth gently move into a better position.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of the smile. It does not require any intensive dental work and delivers great results. We offer two options. Firstly, there is an at-home treatment.
Our patients come in for an initial appointment during which impressions of the teeth are taken. This is to allow us to create whitening trays that fit the individual exactly. They are then given the trays and a whitening gel to be worn during sleep for a period of two or three weeks. The alternative option is a whitening treatment that is completed in our surgery, which takes around an hour.
Veneers are a relatively simple means of cultivating a celebrity smile. They can be used to fix one or several teeth that are chipped, stained or crooked. Veneers are basically very thin coverings for the teeth that cover any flaws. They are made from porcelain, and they look very natural, so no one needs to know that the patient has anything other than great looking teeth. The procedure for getting them is minimally invasive. This means that they can be a suitable and successful treatment even for nervous patients.
