I am sure you’ve all heard of a family member or friend talking about how amazing the work they’ve had done on their teeth is, maybe you’ve had some cosmetic treatment yourself. I don’t think I have heard anything negative about it at all, that’s why an increasing number of people are deciding to improve their smile these days.
Advances in dental technology have meant that procedures are often simple, quick and leave long lasting effects. As the treatment becomes more popular the price becomes more attractive, another great benefit for us the patients.
So what are the main treatments people are choosing to get these days?
When we talk about advances in dental tech implants have to be at the top of that list. The procedure of attaching a post to the jaw and then putting a crown on top is so simple now. Some people, including my father, have even taken out damaged teeth and replaced them with implants. They are easily the best way to replace teeth, bridges are quick becoming a thing of the past.
We’ve all seen the movie stars with gleaming white smiles for years. It used to be that only people on the front of a magazine or Hollywood star, now it’s readily available to everyone. There are even home whitening kits that you can buy in some shops, I would recommend visiting your local dentist to get it done. You will have slightly sensitive teeth for a day or two afterwards but the results are fantastic.
I remember being a teenager and having to wear a big metal brace to sort out my crooked teeth, it really wasn’t pleasant and certainly made me very shy especially smiling. Now people are turning to invisalign. As you might guess from the name, it’s an invisible treatment and that’s why it is so popular. It does take longer to complete than the traditional brace but I believe it will leave you feeling much more comfortable.
