It’ll soon be Easter and you might be planning to take a bit of time off work to maximise your holiday. Perhaps you’re planning on going out with friends, or maybe on a few dates? The problem is, you’re feeling a bit embarrassed about your teeth! They’re not as white, or as straight as they once were. There is a prominent stain on one of them and you haven’t got round to fixing the one that got chipped last summer.

Easter could be the perfect time to fit in an appointment with your dentist here in York and look at the cosmetic options available to you. With your smile looking significantly more attractive, you’ll be able to hit the town full of confidence, showing off your newly enhanced teeth. Let’s have a look at some of the cosmetic dentistry options we offer here at the Blossom Dental Practice in York.

Whiten your teeth and remove stains in York

Given that our teeth naturally discolour as we get older, yellowing teeth is not necessarily a sign that you’re not brushing your teeth often enough. It is often the case that the only way to brighten our teeth by several shades is to use a leading brand of tooth whitening agent on them, such as the type of kits we provide here. Our tooth whitening treatment is safe, effective and should get rid of any stubborn stains you’ve accumulated.

Replace missing teeth

Missing teeth can have a very negative effect on our appearance. There’s a chance you feel self-conscious about those gaps, but there’s no need to be! Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. They are fixed firmly into the mouth by fusing the titanium root, which is placed into your gum, with the jawbone.

This procedure is carried out by an experienced dentist, who will then add a very natural looking crown to the top. Your gaps will be gone. Tooth implants can also support dentures and provide a firm anchor for them, should you have more than one tooth missing in a row. Implant-supported dentures can be attached to as few as 4 to 6 implants to give you a full, new set of secure and realistic looking teeth.

Straightening your crooked teeth

Many of us would love to have straighter teeth, but what is putting many of us us off getting orthodontic treatment is the fact you have to wear braces in order to achieve that. Invisalign causes no such problems. Instead of the traditional metal braces set up, the aligner trays provided by the Invisalign system are removable and translucent, making them both convenient for brushing your teeth and very discreet to wear.

Smile makeover

Why not use your Easter holiday to fix that crack or chip in your tooth with a dental veneer? Cosmetic dentistry procedures from our practice in York are very popular. Perhaps your tooth damage has gone beyond being helped with a veneer and needs a crown or even a white filling? Whatever the issue, a smile makeover will give us the chance to look at your set of teeth and assess your individual cosmetic issues with a view to providing you with an enhanced smile.
