Dentistry today is a relatively harmless process. So you have problems with your teeth, you can’t sleep at night it hurts when you eat and it’s driving you bonkers? A quick phone call to your local dentist can fix all of your problems. You make an appointment with the secretary, you turn up at your allotted time, and after a quick examination of your mouth, the dentist will diagnose the problem administer a local anaesthetic and fix the problem whether a decaying tooth or that filling that has fallen out after chewing on a something hard, and we all know how painful them nerve endings can be.
Nowadays with the advances in modern dentistry, a trip to your local dentist (Vida Dentistry in Fareham is my local dentist) is no longer a dreaded event. With better education in the prevention of oral diseases such as tooth decay, bleeding gums, cavities and abscesses, and with the advances in toothbrush technology and toothpaste formulas our oral hygiene has never been better. Making those trips to the dentist less frequent, but when they are required you know you are in the hands of an experienced surgeon/hygienist and can actually relax with pain-free dentistry.
Unlike dental practitioners of the past whose main focus was to maintain the wellbeing of your oral health, these days the professional dentist can offer you so much more with the rise of dental cosmetics. Although their main concern is still your oral health, cosmetic dentistry employ different methods to improve the appearance of your mouth such as; crooked teeth, missing teeth, discoloured teeth and chipped teeth, for example discoloured teeth can be bleached to return them to that nice white colour of youth, this is known as teeth whitening, chipped and cracked teeth can be covered up with thin shells of tooth-coloured materials which are then stuck to the surface of your teeth with an adhesive, these are known as veneers.
There are many ways your cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of your mouth giving you self-confidence and of course a great smile, so next time you’re going for your dental check-up why not ask the dentist what he can do for you?
