Top Five Most Popular Dental Treatments

25 June 2021

Dentistry used to be more about function than appearance. The fundamentals — pulling teeth, fixing cavities, and performing root canals — were completed, but not much beyond.

With today’s technological advancements, dentistry has turned its focus to cosmetic issues. Many people are concerned about how we can improve the appearance of their teeth and smile.

We understand your concerns at Etwall Dental Practice, and we’ve got you covered. Our dental staff can not only restore the natural function of your teeth but also improve the beauty of your smile. The following are five of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most straightforward and popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic teeth whitening is a £3.2 billion industry that shows no signs of slowing down.

Wear and tear causes the outer layer of enamel to fracture and flake away, causing your teeth to turn yellow. With the addition of coffee, smoke, and other substances, your teeth will no longer shine as they used to.

We offer a variety of teeth whitening treatments that can whiten your smile by up to eight shades. Find out more about our teeth whitening treatments.

Veneers

Veneers may be the answer if your teeth don’t respond to whitening or your smile isn’t symmetrical. These thin ceramic shells are ideal for repairing a range of cosmetic flaws, including chipped teeth, undersized teeth, pointed teeth, badly discoloured teeth, or a gap between your teeth.

We place veneers over your natural teeth in a series of treatments to give them a clean, consistent appearance. If you take good care of your veneers, they can endure for 10-15 years.

Dental Bonding

If veneers aren’t the best option for you, bonding can repair chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth. After applying a bonding liquid to your teeth, we mould a plastic resin into the ideal shape.

We trim and polish the resin once it has hardened to give it a natural appearance. This technique normally only necessitates a single practice visit.

Inlays & Onlays

If you have a severely damaged tooth, an inlay or onlay can be glued to it to rebuild it and restore both its form and function.

These are a good alternative to fillings since, unlike fillings, they can actually strengthen your tooth rather than weaken it. Gold has traditionally been used for inlays and onlays, although porcelain is becoming more fashionable.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves wearing a series of clear plastic aligners to correct crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth.

Each set of plastic aligners is worn for a week or two before being replaced with a new set that corrects your teeth even more. To eat, drink, brush, and floss, simply remove the aligners. Many people like this choice because it allows them to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to themselves.
