Who Gets Cosmetic Dental Treatment Nowadays?
Cosmetic dentistry can be for everyone and it is no longer only for associated models and film stars. New techniques and technology means it is minimally invasive, with pain free treatments and is both affordable and readily available at dental practices throughout the country and anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their teeth can now improve their smile.
Can someone tell if you have had cosmetic dental treatments?
This will depend on the procedure and how radical the changes are. However, it tends to be friends and family members who will see the first improvements in your smile. Others will notice how good you now look, but would find it difficult to tell why. Strangers will only ever know that you have a truly amazing smile.
How much cosmetic dental work can be done?
If you have chipped or worn teeth, or your smile has is not as bright as it once was then a smile rejuvenation may be the treatment for you. This combination of tooth whitening and cosmetic contouring will revitalise your smile in only one or two appointments. If your teeth are not suitable for whitening or if you want to achieve an even brighter smile you may look at veneers, which can help improve other cosmetic problems as well.
Tooth Alignment and positioning
Many adults prefer not to wear braces for 1-3 years, instead choose short term orthodontic treatment to improve alignment of their first upper and lower six front teeth. This will help to relieve crowding, reduce protrusion and close most gaps. Followed by orthodontic treatment, custom-made porcelain veneers or crowns may help to improve the shape and contour of the existing teeth. This concept has been developed to new levels in recent years and has made real life changes to our patients smile.
Even if there has been significant tooth surface loss, resulting in a reduction in lower face height and multiple missing teeth, it is still possible to rebuild the entire dentition and re-establish function and appearance.

How much does it cost?
The investment required to improve your smile will vary depending on the treatment required and the number of teeth to be treated. The investment reflects the amount of the time taken as well as the equipment and materials used.
Fees are discussed openly and patients are given a treatment plan with a full breakdown at the consultation. We have finance options available to spread the costs of your treatment.
Will the treatment be sore?
At Smile Dental centre Basildon, we always endeavour to make your experience relaxing, comfortable and as stress free as possible. Modern techniques mean that even if you do require a local anaesthetic, it can be undertaken with the minimum discomfort.
Will I need to change what I eat?
Modern day veneers and crowns don't stain and are designed to take as much wear as your natural teeth. But you should never use your teeth as tools - such as cracking nuts or opening bottles. Patients should follow a normal oral hygiene routine to maximise longevity of their own teeth and any new restorations alike.
How many appointments will it take to complete?
Depending on what treatments are required and this will be discussed at your initial consultation and we will always be open, honest and transparent before continuing on with the procedures. Some treatments such as crowns can usually be completed in few weeks with only two or three appointments required.
How long will the work done to my smile last?
As with a smile, the longevity of your new smile is directly related to how well you look after it. An after-care programme will be recommended to promote the health of your teeth and gums. We advise regular dental checks up and hygienist visits to maintain to your smile with good oral hygiene and healthy diet.
