It’s important that we feel good about ourselves in our daily lives. Taking care of our minds and bodies, therefore, is something that we should prioritise on a regular basis. Along with ensuring we are keeping healthy, some of us may wish to consider investing in improving our outward appearance. This can be as minor a change as a new haircut, or something more significant, like braces to straighten our smiles. When it comes to our teeth, there are several different cosmetic dentistry options that can help give us an improved, not to mention healthier looking smile. Victoria Road Dental Clinic is a leading local cosmetic dental clinic, offering a wide range of cosmetic dental care treatments. Read on for a guide to some of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available. To book an appointment for a dental makeover, call us on 01895 636 121.
Get a striking smile with expert teeth whitening
There are numerous reasons why teeth become discoloured. Certain foods and beverages such as red wine and coffee can stain teeth. While habits such as smoking can cause teeth to look yellow and unappealing. Additionally, as we age, the enamel (which is the white surface of the tooth) begins to wear away, revealing the yellow underneath. This can be especially noticeable as time goes on.
Thankfully, there is a solution. Teeth whitening is a practice that has been used for many years to improve the appearance of teeth by bleaching them to make them lighter in colour and closer to their original white shade. Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, lasting anywhere from a few months to several years. Additionally, the effects will wear off quicker if the person smokes or drinks coffee or red wine.
There are a wide range of teeth whitening treatments available out there. However, the NHS recommends that you should only have your teeth whitened by a dentist or regulated dental professional. You can try DIY at home whitening treatments, however these can carry risks, including the risk of the bleaching gel leaking and causing pain and blistering to your gums and mouth, putting your oral health at risk.
Teeth whitening can be a great way to improve your smile. See below for some examples of the effect teeth whitening can have.

Replace missing teeth with state of the art dental implants
A missing tooth can have a really detrimental impact on your confidence. Many people who have lost teeth report that it has impacted their self-esteem and they often will try to hide their smile or avoid smiling entirely! Not only can it affect your confidence, but it can also impact the structure of your gum, causing the muscles around your mouth and cheeks to sag, resulting in a person looking older.
Tooth replacement requires a trained professional to correctly attached the replacement tooth to the jawbone so that it will be firmly in place like a natural tooth and it will not move around in the way dentures can.
While dental implants do cost more than bridges or dentures, they are a worthwhile investment when it comes to restoring your smile. To speak to a member of our team about dental implants in Ruislip, contact us today.
Achieve the smile of your dreams with custom made porcelain veneers
More permanent than teeth whitening, veneers are a popular way to makeover your smile. It involves placing a thin layer of porcelain over the front of a tooth. Not only does this enhance the look and feel of the tooth, but it also adds strength to the tooth underneath, making it more resilient.
Dental veneers are completely custom made to ensure your smile looks just the way you want it to. They are great for masking common tooth problems such as discolouration, chips, cracked and misalignment, resulting in a beautiful looking, straight and strong smile.
Veneers are a popular treatment among many celebrities who have chosen to undergo the treatment to transform their smiles into glamorous, red carpet worthy grins. Celebrities such as Hilary Duff, Tom Cruise, Nicholas Cage, Demi Moore and even George Clooney have opted for veneers.

Fix imperfections with expert cosmetic bonding treatment
A less well-known treatment which can have a dramatic effect in improving the look and feel of your smile is cosmetic bonding (also known as composite bonding). Tooth coloured resin (composite) is applied to the tooth or teeth to repair chipped, cracked, decayed or discoloured teeth.
Dental bonding is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve and enhance your smile. It is completely painless and can usually be done in a single sitting. Below are some examples of cosmetic bonding.
Cosmetic bonding is a great way to restore your smile to its former glory or to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. To book a consultation with a member of our dental team for cosmetic bonding in Ruislip or the surrounding areas, get in touch today.
