However, it’s not just the celebrities who can benefit from the expertise of the team at Harley St Smile – many people opt for cosmetic dentistry to help them feel more confident, to enhance their looks or to solve physical problems with their teeth. Here’s a little more about what we can offer you:
Braces and aligners
If your teeth overlap, have large gaps between them or seem to lean in one direction, choosing braces or clear aligners such as the kinds available from InvisalignTM can allow your teeth to be gradually moved to a better position.
Many people dislike the colour of their teeth, but many cases of staining can be resolved through laser or chemical whitening.
Tooth and Gum Contouring
If you’d like your teeth to be more uniform and symmetrical, but some are longer than others or a very different shape, a delicate and exceptionally accurate laser can be used to reshape them to perfection. You can also adjust your gumline so that less tissue shows and you have a whiter, less “gummy” grin.
Veneers and Crowns
Other ways of correcting discoloured, uneven or “gappy” teeth is through the use of veneers, which are thin but sturdy shells – usually made from porcelain – that are applied to the outer surfaces of the teeth. They can be shaped however you wish and their colour can be adjusted to match that of your natural smile. Crowns are similar, but are usually applied to badly damaged or broken teeth. The remaining material acts as an “anchor” for a new tooth – again, usually crafted from ceramic material – which is then placed over it like a cap to fill the gap created by the missing sections of natural tooth.
Bridges and Implants
Also usually ceramic, a bridge is used for a similar purpose to a crown, except that the teeth on either side of the affected area are used as the “anchor” to which the new tooth or tooth cap is fixed. Implants, on the other hand, are affixed directly to the jawbone using a titanium “root” to sit in the place of a tooth that is completely missing. Once again, the new synthetic tooth is usually ceramic.
