I Heart Cosmetics


Cosmetic Dentistry: is it for you?

There is now a huge selection of cosmetic dentistry available on the market from veneers and professional teeth whitening to invisible braces, implants and crowns, all of which help you achieve a more attractive smile. British dental researchers have and are continuing to come up with innovative products and treatments that will revolutionise dental care. It is extremely important to look after your teeth as in the long run it could save your life. Dental care is just as important as putting on your make-up and styling your hair. If you do not take good care of your teeth, in time your appearance may begin to change.

The most popular cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening, which involves lightening the colour of the teeth to achieve a brighter look without harming the original tooth structure in any way. Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective ways of achieving a more attractive smile. The benefits are endless as it can freshen the overall look of your teeth, reduce stains and it does not damage the teeth structure.

Cosmetic dentistry also involves more specialist treatments, which do not suit all. The key thing it to use a reputable salon, preferably in the UK as new research has revealed that many people are trying to cut costs by travelling abroad in the belief that they will get a cheaper set of teeth. However, research has revealed that many dentists abroad who offer treatments such as veneers and teeth whitening, at a fraction of the price they would cost in the UK, are not performing the procedures correctly or to the strict standards the UK adheres to, damaging teeth, many beyond repair.

So which type of dentistry will you opt for? The toothbrush or the drill?
