Cosmetic Dentistry In Reading

23-09-2021

Are you less than happy with the appearance of your teeth? Thanks to advancements in dentistry, you’ve got lots of options as to what you can do. There are several options for cosmetic dentistry in Reading. Here are some of the options that are available to you here at The Gallery.

Veneers

Veneers are an excellent way to correct all kinds of minor cosmetic issues, and so they’re one of the most popular options for cosmetic dentistry in Reading.

A veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is laid over your teeth, and works to correct the shade of your teeth, as well as fill in gaps and mask any other issues that may be bothering you. They’re a permanent option, as your natural teeth have some enamel removed before the veneer is bonded onto them. Good quality veneers will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with the proper care.

As well as porcelain veneers, you can also get composite resin veneers. Some people are getting these as they require very little, or even no tooth preparation. If you think veneers are for you, talk with us and we can help you find the right option.

Composite Fillings

These are another common option for those looking into cosmetic dentistry in Reading. If there’s damage to a tooth, then it can be repaired with a composite tooth filling. This is applied to the enamel surface and hardened, so it can work just like your natural tooth enamel would.

A composite filling is what you may recognise as a ‘white’ filling. They’re actually made to closely resemble the colour of your teeth, so the filling won’t be visible to others once it’s applied.

Dental Implants

Some look into cosmetic dentistry in Reading as they have missing teeth, and want to replace them so they can have their smile back. If that sounds like you, you’ll want to look into dental implants. Rather than regular removable replacement teeth, these are actually implanted into your mouth to keep them in place.

A titanium post is surgically implanted into the jawbone, to act as the ‘root’ for the new tooth. Then a crown or bridge is added on top of it, to replace that tooth. Titanium is well tolerated by the body, so once you’ve recovered from the surgery it’ll be like the teeth was always there.

Implants give you a lot of benefits, too. They work to keep your existing teeth in place, and prevent bone loss in your jawbone. As well as this, they will improve the way you eat and speak, which brings you a lot more confidence.

Porcelain Onlays And Crowns

The great thing about cosmetic dentistry in Reading is that there are so many options available to you. If you have a tooth that has taken a lot of damage, more than what a composite filling could repair, then porcelain onlays and crowns can help.

These are recommended to keep the tooth intact, as without it they’re at risk of fracturing. As such, an onlay is a good way to save a damaged tooth. The way the onlay works will depend on your tooth and the extent of the damage, but they usually are made to extend through the tooth to protect it. We can help you see how it would work, and find an option that’s right for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Dental treatment?

Cosmetic dentistry has the power to make big changes in people’s lives. Some of the main benefits that patients may get from cosmetic dental work are:

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Improved oral health and general well-being
  • Improved facial appearance
  • Improved comfort
  • Improved speech

Who could benefit from cosmetic dental work?

Not too long ago, there wasn’t much you could do to get the smile you’d always wanted. There weren’t many ways to fix teeth that were broken, stained, or crooked. But now, with the wide range of Cosmetic Dentistry treatments at The Gallery Dental in Reading are available, every smile can be made to look better, giving our patients a whole new world of options.

What is the most common cosmetic dental procedure that people get?

Most people probably get their teeth whitened more than anything else. Whitening your teeth can be the fastest and most effective way to make your smile look better. By making your teeth a few shades lighter, you can undo the effects of ageing and discoloration and change the way you look.

What are some of the things that can be done with Cosmetic Dentistry?

Some of the benefits that can come from Cosmetic Dentistry include:

  • Rejuvenate discoloured / stained teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Reduce the over-crowded nature of teeth
  • Straighten overlapping or crooked teeth
  • Cover chips
  • Conceal blemishes
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Repair broken teeth
  • Replace old, discoloured amalgam fillings with tooth-coloured restorations
  • Gum re-contouring for gummy smiles

What can I do to make my smile look better and keep it healthy?

If your teeth get broken, lost, or just worn down over time, there are a number of ways to fix these problems today. If you are missing teeth, you may be able to get Implants, Dentures, or Bridges. If a tooth needs to be rebuilt, crowns, inlays, or onlays could be the answer. Tooth whitening, veneers, and composite bonding are all treatments that you could think about if you want to change the way your teeth look.
