While not all of us have a killer smile, it goes without saying that nothing, simply nothing is impossible in today’s tech-driven world.

Cosmetic dentistry has become a rage in the UK today with celebrities opting to look perfect with a bright smile to die for.

There are computerised smile analysis methods that will exactly tell you which part of the gum, jaw bones need working.

There are different types of cosmetic dental treatments available today. Some of them include the famous teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is a method that treats teeth discolouration. If your teeth are yellowed by food, coffee, tea or wine stains, teeth whitening may be an option for you if you are looking to have your pearls fairer. Your quick fix for teeth whitening is the laser technique using laser beams that emit intense light that activate the hydrogen peroxide embedded in your teeth. This chemical reaction removes the stain from the teeth making it whiter. Apart from whitening bridges are used as well which replaces a missing or damaged tooth. It’s made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the bridge. A bridge is usually made of metal or porcelain and is fixed in your mouth, unlike dentures that can be removed. Veneers are yet another way of removing teeth discolouration. To fit the veneer, the front of the teeth is drilled a bit and an impression is taken. With this, a thin layer of porcelain is fitted over on the front of the tooth.

Teeth straightening is done either cosmetically or with the orthodontics method. In cosmetic teeth straightening the patient is given a local anesthetic after which the surgical device uses heat to remove fragments from the gum to reshape the gum. New veneers are then fitted on the gum. Orthodontics enables teeth straightening with metal or tooth coloured brace that is fitted in the mouth. The wires in between the teeth push or pull the teeth out to enable straightening of the teeth.

In case you have a cavity or just a gap in the teeth, cosmetic dentistry helps you to fill the gap with the help of white fillings. Made of a composite of resin and glass particles, they are cemented onto the existing tooth using a bonding agent. If maintained properly which entails proper brushing and cleaning white fillings can last for a decade, but they are not as strong as veneers. It is always important that you consult a dentist first regarding the cost of such treatments and the time required for healing.
