New Year, New You!

A recent survey revealed that 3 in 4 UK adults don’t like smiling for the camera. A bright white smile can not only help you to appear younger and more attractive but can also help to improve your confidence and self-esteem. A smile makeover takes into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth (colour, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons our fully trained team of dentists at Benfleet Dental Centre will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan designed to meet your needs. This treatment plan may consist of many cosmetic and functionally restorative procedures, potentially including teeth whitening, veneers, dental crowns, dental implants and teeth straightening.

  • Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can improve your confidence and self-esteem. It is an effective and affordable way to enhance the appearance of your smile. It can help to remove stains caused by food, drink and smoking and can also help to lighten teeth that have darkened with age.

Once completed, it will be necessary to top up your teeth whitening every 2-3 years to keep your teeth looking their best.

  • Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain which are attached to the front of your teeth to improve the appearance or colour of your teeth. They can also be used to close small gaps where teeth straightening treatments would not be appropriate.

  • Dental Crowns

Crowns are tooth shaped caps that are placed over broken or decayed teeth. Crowns improve the appearance, shape and alignment of teeth and can be placed over an implant to provide a tooth like shape and structure for function.

They are normally made of white ceramic, which is colour matched to your natural teeth, so they blend seamlessly with your smile.

  • Dental Implants

Dental implants can restore your smile, by replacing one or more missing teeth. They are durable, long lasting and are the closest possible restoration to having your natural teeth back. Dental implants should last for at least 10 years and provide the best success rate of any dental treatment.

A dental implant consists of two parts, the ‘screw or post’ acting as the root of the tooth. The implant ‘post’ is made of titanium which Osseo integrates to the surrounding bone. The screw or post is topped with a crown, denture or bridge, depending on the number of teeth to be replaced.

  • Teeth Straightening

Over the past few years there has been an increase in the number of adults turning to teeth straightening procedures to help improve the appearance of their smile. 

Teeth straightening can help to improve both your appearance and your confidence

Not all teeth straightening treatments are suitable for every patient and this is why at Benfleet Dental Centre we are pleased to be able to offer both Invisalign and Fixed braces.

Remember, every smile is unique so what works for one patient may not work for you.
