What makes the perfect smile?

Confident woman with perfect smileIf you feel that your current smile is letting you down, you are far from alone. A recent survey conducted by the Oral Health Foundation found that nearly half of adults in the UK – 48% of us – dislike something about their current smile to the point that they feel it affects their confidence, business and social relationships. If you are among this sizeable minority, a cosmetic dentistry consultation could be the perfect answer.

Interest in and demand for cosmetic dental procedures is rapidly increasing both here in the UK and in the USA. While once only Hollywood superstars and TV personalities could afford such treatment, thanks to advances in techniques and materials cosmetic procedures are now available to anyone who wants them.

It’s not all about aesthetics, either. As well as providing a significant boost to your self-confidence and body image, cosmetic dentistry can come with surprising health benefits that are sure to have you smiling in no time.

PDC Dental in Barnsley has helped many patients to transform their smile and their self-esteem, whether they require a quick course of teeth whitening, a full smile makeover, or something in between. As a cosmetic dentist there are few greater pleasures than seeing a patient once too shy to smile walking out of the practice after treatment unable to stop beaming.

People visit a cosmetic dentist for many reasons, some with a specific concern whilst others are known just that they do not like their current smile and would like some help improving it. Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world, and as long as it is prescribed by a dentist is a safe, effective, and fast way of removing common stains such as those caused by coffee, tea, and nicotine from the teeth.

Permanently discoloured teeth require a different approach. If a tooth has changed colour following root canal treatment or dental trauma, porcelain veneers could be the perfect solution. By using these thin porcelain shells that are bonded over the front surfaces of the teeth, a dentist can improve the look of a range wide of problems, including discolouration and minor concerns with spacing or alignment.
