What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
In recent years, most of us have become much more self-conscious about our appearance. While personality is still top of the list of our most important features, an attractive smile comes a very close second. Rather than focussing on routine fillings and extractions, cosmetic dentistry is all about improving the appearance of your teeth, facial symmetry, and smile.
The best cosmetic dentists know that there’s more to a winning smile than crowns and veneers. Let’s face it, a bright, attractive smile not only looks great, it can also work wonders for your confidence and self-esteem. As well as being one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant capital cities, London is also a leading centre for cosmetic dentistry. That’s what makes it one of the easiest places in the world to find the best cosmetic dentist to handle your dental make-over.
Teeth whitening treatment options
Teeth whitening is currently one of the most popular treatments requested at our cosmetic dental surgery, London. Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective treatments available to restore a youthful, healthy gleam. Two of the most popular tooth whitening options available at our London dental surgery are home whitening and in-clinic, laser whitening.
With a little help from the best cosmetic dentist, London, it’s highly likely that you’ll be able to brighten your teeth amazingly quickly with a home or in-clinic teeth whitening treatment. To get the best results from a home whitening treatment, your dentist will make a custom tooth whitening tray. Your tray can be used overnight with a peroxide whitening gel. Home teeth whitening treatments normally take about 3 to 4 weeks to achieve the best results.
For even faster results, you can opt for in-surgery whitening with the Philips Zoom system. Many patients call this treatment laser whitening, even though it no longer involves a laser. After painting a special whitening gel on your teeth, your cosmetic dentist will use a bright, blue light to activate the whitening chemical reactions.
Teeth whitening treatments with an experienced cosmetic dentist in London are relatively inexpensive and generally have very few side effects.
Brightening your smile with white fillings
With more information available about the causes of tooth decay, many more adults in London and the UK are managing to stay filling-free. If your dentist advises that you do need a filling, it may not need to be the traditional, metallic type of years gone by. White fillings perform almost as well as metallic types, but they are pretty-much invisible to your friends and colleagues.
Sweets and sugary drinks can eventually fuel bacterial tooth decay. In time, the decay can lead to toothache, or even the breakdown of a tooth’s structure. The old remedy was a metallic ‘amalgam’ filling. Though metallic fillings are strong and long-lasting, many people consider them to be conspicuous and unattractive. The cosmetic alternative is a ‘white filling’ made from a modern composite resin.
The latest white fillings have increased strength and improved bonding to the interior of the cavity. They are also free from mercury, which is great for the environment. The down side is that white fillings are a little more complicated for your dentist to fit. This can mean extra time in the dentist’s chair, and a slightly higher cost than an amalgam filling.
Fitting dental implants
Modern dental implants are an incredibly popular replacement for damaged tooth roots. The implant itself is usually made from Titanium – an amazing metal that’s able to fuse seamlessly with your own bones. A specially trained cosmetic dentist (implantologist) can replace a damaged, decayed, or missing tooth root with a Titanium implant. The implant is then used as an artificial root for an attractive porcelain crown.
When fitted by a skilled cosmetic dentist, implants look and feel just like a normal tooth. Unlike dentures, implants allow you to eat all of your favourite foods without embarrassment or discomfort. Implants are also a very versatile option. Multiple tooth implants can even be used as artificial roots for a permanent bridge or dental reconstruction.
Dental implants are a discreet and attractive tooth replacement option for most people with good oral health. Unfortunately, smoking can cause complications during the implant healing process. Most cosmetic dentists will encourage you to quit before your implant treatment. Regular dental check-ups, combined with special attention to cleaning and flossing, will keep your implants in tip-top condition long after fitting.
Orthodontics in cosmetic dentistry
Modern dentistry has so much more to offer than fillings and extractions. Orthodontics is a word that’s used by dentists when they talk about special treatments for improving the appearance and effectiveness of your teeth.
Smile restoring procedures involving braces, bridges, onlays and veneers are all classed as orthodontic treatments. Ultra-modern tooth straightening options, like transparent Invisalign braces, have transformed orthodontic dentistry. An Invisalign treatment involves using a series of personalised ‘trays’ to gradually move crooked teeth into perfect alignment. This revolutionary tooth straightening programme can link a cosmetic dentist in London with the Invisalign 3D printing facility in the USA. Virtually invisible, Invisalign trays are easy to fit and remove at home.
If Invisalign isn’t the answer to your own orthodontic problem, there’s a cosmetic dentist in London with an amazing range of alternative solutions.

The increased interest in tooth whitening and other cosmetic treatments has led to a rise in the number of beauty salons offering whitening treatments and other specialist services.
Before you opt for whitening, or any other dental treatment at a beauty salon, check that a trained and registered dentist will handle the procedure. Why is this so important? Well, firstly it’s illegal for anyone who’s not registered as a dental professional to carry out tooth whitening procedures.
