Top Treatments for Great Teeth

Your smile is often one of the first things other people notice about you and if you have a fantastic set of teeth your smile can look amazing. Should you be one of the many people that are reluctant to smile as they do not like the appearance of their teeth, there are steps you can take to improve the look and health of your teeth, so you can unleash your smile on the world. Take a look at some of the top treatments currently available that can give you straighter white teeth in a relatively short amount of time. 

Clear aligners 
As a child, braces were one of the things you probably feared you would have to wear, but as an adult, you will appreciate their efficacy. Fortunately, there are incredible aligners now available that are virtually invisible and can straighten your teeth in a matter of months. Visit your local reputable dental clinic to discuss your individual requirements and discover how you can take advantage of a product such as Invisalign that provides removable fitted aligners that will correct the position of your teeth in a discreet way. 

Teeth cleaning 
Sometimes it is possible to achieve beautiful teeth without needing more than a rigorous teeth-cleaning appointment with a dental hygienist. If your teeth are slightly discoloured, or you haven’t cleaned them properly, a visit to your local dental clinic for a thorough clean, or “scale and polish” could be all that is required. 

Teeth whitening 
Although cleaning your teeth and having regular dental appointments can go some way to maintaining the natural whiteness of your teeth, heavily stained or yellow teeth may need a more substantial treatment. Teeth whitening is a fairly simple process when conducted by an accredited dental professional and you may only need an initial whitening appointment before returning home with a teeth-whitening kit with which to continue the treatment. 

You are likely to have seen many celebrities enjoying the impact of pearly white veneers, but you may not know that the treatment has become affordable and accessible to those without a celebrity bank balance. After some of the surface enamel of your teeth has been removed, thin porcelain or composite material veneers are bonded to your natural teeth. Although you may be tempted to opt for extremely white veneers, any reputable dental professional will advise you to select a more natural aesthetic. 

Will it hurt? 
One of the most common barriers to people who are considering choosing dental treatments such as the ones mentioned above, is the fear that the treatments may hurt. Although some patients can experience discomfort with the lengthier procedures, it is not common to experience pain. However, should you be extremely fearful, you should discuss the possibility of sedation dentistry prior to receiving any treatment. Patients with phobias can find it helpful to know that they can be sedated during procedures should it be deemed necessary. Always choose an established dental clinic that is happy to show you examples of their work and to discuss any concerns you may have.​
