Cosmetic Dentistry: A Pure Smiles Guide
While cosmetic dentistry has the remarkable ability to change a person’s appearance, the real influences run a lot deeper than that. Cosmetic dentistry can give your confidence a huge boost, as well as solving physical problems you may be experiencing with your teeth. To help you get to grips with our cosmetic treatments, we’ve created a Pure Smiles guide to answer all of your frequently asked questions.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
At Pure Smiles, cosmetic dentistry is all about improving your smile. Whether that’s with our digitally-designed smiles, teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, our cosmetic dentistry drastically improves your appearance. Alongside these visual enhancements, we also solve physical issues such as missing or dead teeth. Overall, our cosmetic dentistry is about boosting self-esteem and improving your oral health.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening does exactly what it says on the tin - it’s a convenient, cost-effective and straightforward procedure that supplies you with a dazzling smile you can be proud of. Our high-gloss tooth serum repair paste is used to fill in defects on the surface of your teeth, which drastically improves brightness, sensitivity and smoothness. Teeth whitening doesn’t only improve that vital first impression - dazzling teeth will also improve your self-esteem and confidence. To put it simply - if you look good, you feel good.
How long does teeth whitening last?
No matter your age, diet or how yellow your teeth are, Enlighten whitening lasts around three years on average. Credited as an Enlighten Regional Centre of Excellence, Pure Smiles uses Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening to deliver long-lasting and guaranteed results. Most teeth whitening procedures result in short-term brightness, but that isn’t the case with Enlighten.
What are veneers?
Veneers are expertly crafted thin layers of porcelain moulded onto your teeth in order to improve size, shape and colour. An easy way to think of them is like false nails for teeth. Got a gap in your teeth you’ve always been unhappy with? Our veneers are the perfect solution for you. Pure Smiles uses bespoke porcelain veneers on any number of teeth, so we can keep your smile as natural as possible.
How do veneers work?
Our bespoke porcelain veneers are moulded before treatment even begins, ensuring that your veneers are perfectly shaped to your teeth. We then apply a special adhesive to the affected area of your teeth to keep the bond strong and reliable, which also supplies protection against decay. If you have misshapen, crowded or darkened teeth, our veneers are carefully placed onto the tooth to twist and reshape your mouth. Barring some final adjustments, your veneers will be fitted in one, quick session.
What is digital smile design?
A digital smile design is the future of cosmetic dentistry. Our digitally designed smile treatment uses innovative technology to craft a transformative smile that’s made especially for you. Rather than creating traditional impression moulds of your teeth, we use digital impressions that are much faster and accurate. With the resulting digital image, we create a 3D model, so you can see your new smile from all angles before we start your treatment.
No matter the treatment, using Pure Smiles as your cosmetic dentist guarantees an unmatched standard of quality that delivers life-changing and long-lasting results. Book an appointment today and transform your smile.
