  • How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Change Your Life

Cosmetic dentistry can transform your life through even the most simple of procedures - restoring your confidence and increasing your happiness and wellbeing. Read below to see how a cosmetic treatment could impact on your life:

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dental surgery can bring a huge amount of changes to your life. The benefits of these include:

Corrected Smile

Your smile is your most important feature! As a focal point of your face, the mouth is one of the first things people notice, and the main way of expressing your feelings. Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to fix your smile in situations where surgery may not be medically needed, but which allows you to achieve the most out of an important feature - resulting in improved communications with others.

Increased Confidence

Fixing your smile can have a huge effect on the way you feel. This confidence can have a positive impact not just on your appearance, but on your whole life - from socialising, to the workplace. As you feel more comfortable in yourself, your personality will be able to shine through confidently without the restriction and self-conscious feelings that damaged teeth would have on you.

Quick Fixes

Cosmetic dentistry can change your life in an instant. Teeth whitening procedures, crowns, dental implants and more, can all transform your smile immediately - achieving outcomes that other remedies would take years to accomplish.

Prevention Of Further Treatment

As well as cosmetically covering discoloured or misshapen teeth, procedures like crowns can be used to prevent weak teeth from breaking – reducing the risk of more treatments being needed further down the line.

Different Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many different types of cosmetic dentistry procedures available depending on your requirements. These include:


Ideal for giving you the perfect Hollywood smile, veneers are custom-made porcelain or resin covers that envelope the front surface of your teeth.

Teeth Whitening

A fast and affordable treatment, teeth whitening brightens your smile with ease. Our highly-popular procedure can lighten your teeth by up to six shades in a single visit. Once your teeth have been treated, you can maintain your brighter smile with your home whitening kit that tops up your whitening as often as needed.

Dental Crowns

Crowns, also known as caps, are used to restore broken-down teeth. Whereas veneers only cover the front surface of your tooth, crowns encase the entire tooth.


Implants are a functional and durable solution to missing teeth and are considered the gold standard, preferred by many over dental bridges. The implant itself acts as an artificial tooth root and is finished with a crown, that looks and feels just like your own tooth. Dental implants are a great way of replacing lost teeth whilst preserving the existing bone that helps give your face its shape.


A cosmetic alternative to fillings, inlays restore large cavities and are perfectly colour-matched to your existing teeth.

5 Reasons to Visit Your Oral Hygienist This Month

Regular oral hygiene check-ups are the key to maintaining a healthy and happy smile. Of course, for many of us, we’ve been unable to keep up our routine appointments over the last year due to COVID restrictions in the UK.
