The cosmetic dentistry revolution sweeping the UK

Cosmetic Dentistry RevolutionOnce upon a time, the British were (perhaps somewhat unkindly) known around the world for the poor condition of their teeth. It is now widely acknowledged that oral health problems including tooth decay and gum disease are starting to fall, whilst at the same time more and more people are taking an interested in cosmetic dental treatments to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Not everybody ends up with the smile they want when their adult teeth start to come through. In fact, the majority of people are unhappy with some aspect of their smile, be that tooth alignment or positioning, having too much gum on show, the colour of their teeth. . .

By visiting a reputable cosmetic dentist, such as those at Vogue Dental Care, Luton, you open yourself up to a wealth of treatments both large and small, which can be used separately or in combination to create the smile you’ve always dreamt of.

It wasn’t so long ago that only celebrities were able to afford cosmetic dental treatment. However, in recent years there have been major advances in dental technology (such as computer-aided smile design) and materials, coupled with an increase in demand from the general public. Thus, the popularity and availability of cosmetic dentistry continue to rise, and show no signs of slowing down in the near future.

The key thing to remember when considering what cosmetic dental treatment can do for you is that (within reason) anything is possible. A good cosmetic dentist won’t push a particular type of treatment or insist on using a specific brand against patient wishes. Instead, they will take the time to listen to what their clients want to achieve, what they like and/or dislike about their current smile, and what their ultimate outcome would be. Then they will work out the perfect customised treatment plan to realise those dreams.

Whether you are deemed to need one treatment or several, when selecting a cosmetic dentist you should look out for:

  • Customised treatment plans
  • Testimonials from past patients/the ability to talk to patients who have had similar treatment
  • Guarantees on work
  • Fully-qualified practitioners from a reputable practice.
