Using cosmetic dentistry to boost your smile and your self-image

These days, cosmetic dentistry isn’t just popular among celebrity circles; an increasing number of men and women are turning towards aesthetic dental treatments to create the smile they’ve always wanted. At Dove Dental Care in Derby we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry options, so if you have any issues at all with the current appearance of your smile, we can help you to realise your dreams.

cosmetic-dentistry-derbyNearly half of the adult population of the UK is unhappy with some aspect of their smile. The largest single complaint is about the colour of the teeth, and at our Derby clinic we have several cosmetic dentistry solutions to tooth discolouration.

But cosmetic dentistry is about more than just white teeth. If you ask your friends, family, or colleagues what the “ideal smile” would look like, the chances are you will get a plethora of different answers. Dove Dental Care in Derby recognises that every smile is unique as the person behind it, and therefore your dentist will fully customise options from our cosmetic dentistry menu to make sure we find the perfect smile for you.

Derby cosmetic dentistry options

If discoloured teeth are getting you down, there are a number of cosmetic dentistry options available. The best course of treatment will depend on the nature of your tooth staining.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular and famous procedure in the world of cosmetic dentistry. So long as it is carried out under the supervision of a dentist, it is a safe and reliable way to brighten up your smile. We use home whitening at our Derby clinic.

Porcelain veneers

These micro-thin porcelain shells are bonded over the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance, and can be used to improve the look of a permanently discoloured, chipped, or cracked tooth. Alternatively, a full set may be used in a smile makeover.

Teeth straightening

Straighter teeth are another popular cosmetic dental request at our Derby clinic. Your dentist can use cosmetic braces – Six Month Smiles – or clear, removable aligners – Invisalign – to subtly improve the alignment of your teeth.
