3 ways a dentist can transform your smile

A smile can tell a lot about a person in terms of health, general oral hygiene and diet. From brown stains to decaying teeth, an unsatisfactory smile can have an enormous impact on a person’s confidence which is why a smile makeover could be just what you need. A Dentist in Richmond would need to arrange an appointment with you face-to-face to access what needs to be done to your smile. We have a range of specialist treatments on offer that a dentist in Richmond could use to turn your smile into one you can be proud of - the smile you have always dreamed of.

A dentist in Richmond would arrange a consultation to consider what you hope to achieve from treatment. We would then take photographs and x-rays of your teeth to scan onto our systems, enabling us to discuss the available treatments for you and what you’d feel comfortable with. From there, we would start your tailored treatment plan immediately, taking that first anticipated step towards the smile you have always wanted.

What treatments are available?

1. Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are extremely thin custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front of the teeth. They are colour-matched to your teeth and are shaped and sized in accordance. Veneers can be made from resin composite but what makes porcelain that little bit more special is its ability to resist staining more efficiently - though your dentist will discuss what is best for you and your teeth. Similarly, if you have a small gap that you’re conscious of and do not qualify for braces, our porcelain veneers could be used to solve that problem.

2. Gum Contouring

Gums are certainly an area of insecurity for many people looking to transform their smile. Gum contouring is a procedure that reshapes and resculpts the gumline in order to obtain a healthier ratio of teeth to gum. Our specialist dentists work to create this oral balance by removing excess gum tissue or creating more for those who suffer from receding gums. The procedure takes roughly 1-2 hours and our dentists administer a local anaesthetic into your gums to minimise any pain.

3. Teeth Whitening

It is almost impossible to avoid teeth staining, but some cases are worse than others. Nothing compares to a bright smile, but years of staining can dull the teeth, which is why we offer an easy, almost completely pain-free solution to restore that desired glow. All it takes is a consultation, a custom-built tray and a bleaching agent - it’s as simple as that.

It is our mission to take you on that journey and put that smile back on your face, which is why we have a number of helpful payment plans in place to help you out.
