Bracess and its Types

Achieve a beautiful smile with cosmetic dentistry in Barnsley

Bracess and its TypesCosmetic dentistry involves all those dental treatments that help improve a person’s teeth, gums and smile. Most cosmetic dentists have received extensive education and training over the years, not to mention their experience in improving patients’ smiles with innovative treatments.

Cosmetic dentistry in Barnsley differs from general dental treatments or restorative dentistry procedures, because it is mostly elective. However, many cosmetic treatments offered at dental practices such as PDC Dental go beyond aesthetics, improving the overall health and functionality of teeth and gums.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is perhaps the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment around the world. This is because it is easily accessible, cost-effective and quick. Patients prefer it over other treatments because it is non-invasive and is capable of improving one’s appearance in as little as an hour. Teeth whitening can be performed either at the dentist’s chair or at home. Both options are safe and very effective. Nonetheless, quicker results are achieved through professional teeth whitening in the dentist’s chair, which is usually accompanied by laser technology.

Porcelain veneers

Some people cannot pursue teeth whitening treatment because their teeth and gums are very sensitive. In this case, dental veneers may be an alternative option. Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain fixed over teeth and help correct worn enamel, uneven alignment/spacing, chips/cracks, and/or discolouration.

Porcelain veneers are also a quick and easy solution for covering stained teeth. However, it is important to know that dental veneers are invasive since they require a small but permanent alteration of the tooth enamel.

Gum contouring

Gummy smile, a condition where individuals show excessive gum tissue when smiling, can be a real concern for many people. Also known as ‘excessive gingival display’, gummy smile can be treated in many ways with cosmetic dentistry in Barnsley including laser contouring and surgical lip repositioning. By the end of the treatment, patients achieve a better-looking and a more discreet smile.

Invisible braces

For a teeth straightening solution without the hassle of metal braces, consider invisible braces. There are a number of invisible braces available, including ceramic tooth-coloured brackets, lingual braces as well as clear, removable aligners such as Invisalign.
