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 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.
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.
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 were 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.
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.
