This year, here at Benfleet Dental Centre our new year’s resolution is to help you achieve your perfect smile.
A recent survey revealed that 3 in 4 UK adults do not 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.
Our fully trained team of dentists at Benfleet Dental Centre will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan designed to achieve exactly what you want from your makeover. This treatment plan may consist of many cosmetic and functionally restorative procedures, potentially including teeth whitening,composite bonding, veneers, dental crowns, teeth straightening, and dental implants.
Here at Benfleet Dental Centre we can offer:
Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without damaging the tooth itself.
Teeth whitening 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.
The darker your teeth, the longer your teeth will take to get lighter, but your dentist will be able to advise you on the expected time frame.
Once completed, it will be necessary to top up your teeth whitening every 2-3 years to keep your teeth looking their best.
In the past few years there has been a large increase in the number of adults looking to improve the appearance of their smile using new teeth straightening methods. Here at Benfleet Dental Centre we are able to offer Invisalign and Fixed braces.
Invisalign aligners are barely visible and removable, so treatment can fit your lifestyle and allow you to straighten your teeth without anyone else needing to know. Invisalign can provide a solution to treat both mild and severe teeth straightening issues – treating gapped teeth, overcrowded teeth, a deep bite, an underbite, a cross bite or an open bite.
Fixed Braces – These are the most common type of brace and can be used to straighten both your upper and lower teeth. Small brackets are cemented onto your teeth and joined together with a wire. Over time these wires are gradually tightened, applying gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the desired position.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth.
Veneers can improve the colour, shape, and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten the front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when teeth straightening are not suitable.
A dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth by inserting a titanium screw into the bone and placing a crown, bridge or denture over it, depending on the number of teeth to be replaced. We use enhanced imaging techniques where necessary to identify the suitability of the individual case and to plan the best treatment for the individual patient.
