If you are planning to have cosmetic dentistry, knowing what to expect from the outset will ensure that you get the results you desire – and will also ensure that you get good value for money. By choosing a dentist that listens carefully to your needs and gives you the best possible advice, you will be confident that you are making the right decision from the outset. Here at Battle Road Dental Practice, that is exactly what we do.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry, sometimes referred to as ‘aesthetic dentistry’, is a term used to describe dental treatments that are intended to improve the appearance of your teeth. It is essentially the same as improving the way you look using cosmetic surgery or even a new hairstyle. Modern cosmetic dental treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth and include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, implants and tooth whitening. In most cases, cosmetic dentistry is not covered on the NHS.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?

A surprising number of UK adults are unhappy about the appearance of their teeth. Although there may be no risk to your dental health, the effects can, nonetheless, be profound. People who do not like their teeth are likely to have lower self esteem and be less confident, and this can have both social and economical consequences. 

Some people may lack confidence in socialising or dating, for example. Others may find that they are reluctant to attend interviews or apply for positions that involve speaking before others – and this can have a real impact on their earning potential. For other people, cosmetic dentistry might be something they are considering for a major life event such as a wedding. 

If any of the above sounds like you, cosmetic dentistry is well worth considering.
