VeneersAre you putting your hand over your mouth when you smile?

Not anymore! Your dentist can offer you cosmetic dentistry that will transform your life.
Problem- How can I whiten my yellow teeth?
Our teeth will get darker with age. For older people, their teeth will naturally turn a brownish yellow—not necessarily from smoking, coffee, or wine.
Solution- Teeth Whitening
Teeth Whitening will lightens teeth that have been stained or discolored by age, food, drink, and smoking. This is a non-invasive procedure, which leaves you with a natural yet bright smile.
Problem- I want to get rid of my unattractive old black fillings
Solution- Composite Fillings
Old black fillings can be replace with tooth-coloured fillings that blend in with the surrounding tooth structure for a natural appearance. White fillings chemically bond to your tooth structure, giving further support to your tooth.
Problem- Are you embarrassed by your broken or chipped teeth?
Solution- Veneers
Veneers are thin custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded onto your teeth. Veneers are a very versatile treatment, providing a brighter, whiter, straighter smile for almost anyone.
Problem- Can my broken tooth be saved?
Solution- Crowns
Yes, your dentist might be able to save your tooth by placing a crown on the broken tooth. A crown is a tooth-colored, custom-made covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Problem- Replacing missing teeth?
Solution- You have three options to replace missing teeth
1. Dentures (False Teeth)
Modern-day dentures can look very realistic and improve the appearance of your face but as your gums shrink and your bite changes your dentures may need to be relined or re-made.
2. Bridges (false teeth that are fixed onto adjacent natural teeth)
A Bridge maintains the shape of your face and restores your ability to properly chew and speak. Bridges are not removable and can last for 10-15 years if well looked after.
3. Dental implants (metal 'pegs' are placed in your jawbone, and dentures, crowns or bridges are clipped or screwed on top of them.)
When a tooth is lost, the missing root also causes problems since the bone surrounding the hole where the root used to be will gradually shrink and disappear. A dental implant placed in this area can actually stimulate bone growth and production, preventing loss of valuable bone structure
Problem –My teeth are crooked teeth
 Crooked teeth might affect your in confidence and self-esteem. If left untreated, crooked teeth can lead to periodontal disease and premature wear on your enamel.
Solution- Orthodontic braces
You can choose from Envisaging, which are clear braces to incognito braces that are applied to your teeth in the inside.

It might be easier to smile with confidence. A beautiful smile is no longer just for celebrities.20/20 Dental Practice is cosmetic dentist  Newbury.
