New Year, New Smile11 January 2020
With a fresh new year and decade at your feet, we’re sure you have lots of new resolutions that you are brimming with excitement about. Many people choose to ring in a new year with a boost to their health and fitness, with gyms up and down the country enjoying an influx of new members.
Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, so if health is high on your agenda, don’t forget to give your teeth and gums some extra attention too. Start by planning to change your toothbrush or electric brush head every three months to ensure optimum cleaning at all times – we recommend buying enough in advance and setting quarterly reminders on your phone! Next up, make sure your dental check ups and hygiene appointments are on schedule, too.
Dental health and hygiene
Keeping up to date with your regular dental appointments allows your dentist to spot any changes at an early stage, before anything becomes more serious (or expensive). If we see something early on, we can usually treat it very easily. The same goes for your hygiene appointments; if we keep things fresh and clean for you, you’re less likely to suffer with gum problems caused by plaque build-up.
Great oral hygiene is the foundation of a beautiful smile. Once your mouth is in good health, you may want to consider further treatments to really enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Here at Crendon Dental Centre in High Wycombe, we’re pleased to offer a wide variety of treatments that our patients absolutely love.
With Invisalign GO, we are able to straighten your smile using clear aligner technology. This system is perfect for teenagers and adults who may have had braces in the past but are disappointed with a relapse, or those who have never had orthodontic treatment due to being put off by high costs, long treatment times or unsightly metal braces.
With Invisalign GO, we can change all of that! With no brackets or wires, just removeable clear aligners, no one will even know you are having treatment – unless you tell them! Why not book a consultation where we can provide you with a digital image of what your teeth would look like after Invisalign GO treatment?
Composite fillings and bonding
If you have silver-coloured metal amalgam fillings, replacing them with tooth-coloured composite fillings can make a real difference to your smile. Not only that, thanks to advances in technology, these fillings are now just as hard wearing as the traditional metal ones and offer a long-lasting option.
We can also use composite filling material to enhance cracked, chipped, worn, or misshapen teeth to create a more aesthetic appearance. For those with minor misalignment, we can sometimes use composite bonding to create a straighter appearance too. Many patients like to combine this with teeth whitening beforehand, for a really outstanding transformation.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured, shaped covers that are fixed on the front of the teeth to improve aesthetics. Veneers are a great way to disguise things like gaps, chipped teeth, discoloured teeth, misaligned teeth or to improve the size and shape of the teeth to boost the overall appearance of the smile.
One of the most popular options is teeth whitening, as this provides an easy way to achieve incredible results. Whether you choose it as a standalone treatment, or combined with straightening or composite bonding as part of a wider treatment plan, professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective method of enhancing your smile. Here at Crendon Dental Centre, we offer two teeth whitening systems and your dentist can discuss the benefits of each to allow you to make an informed decision about the most suitable one for you.
