Want to get a new smile? A guide to dental makeovers

Are you interested in having a dental makeover or improving the aesthetics of your smile?

At Dental FX, we can help you get a new smile Glasgow using our customised approach to dental aesthetics, so you can get the smile that you have always wanted. Perfect!

In this article, we discuss what is involved in helping you get a new smile Glasgow with our dental makeovers. So, read on to find out more!

Veneers

One of the easiest ways to instantly get a new smile Glasgow is with the fitting of porcelain veneers.

These are, in essence, porcelain coverings that are custom-fitted to your teeth and are placed using dental cement. To ensure that we get the right shape for each tooth, our team will take a scan or mould of your teeth.

Veneers can be used to instantly whiten your teeth, to conceal cracks, chips or damage, to create better symmetry and to conceal minor gaps that you have between your teeth. They can also whiten your teeth by up to 18 shades, so they are the easiest way to get a Hollywood smile.

Teeth whitening

If you want to whiten your teeth, but don’t want the hassle of veneers, then you can always talk to our team about dental whitening.

When our team whitens teeth, we use a specialised oxidising gel, which can remove deeply set surface stains caused by smoking, drinking red wine, tea or just yellowing of the teeth. The process does not heighten sensitivity and can whiten your smile by up to 8 shades in as little as 2 weeks.

White fillings

Most people who were given fillings in the early 2000s on their molar teeth received amalgam options, made from metal. Aesthetically, amalgam fillings appear black or grey, which is not the look many people want when they open their mouths wide to laugh or yawn.

Luckily, our team can not only fit white composite fillings if you need them, but we can replace your amalgam fillings with porcelain ones, meaning that your teeth will look flawless. Composite fillings also have the advantage of not being heat-sensitive, so they will not expand or contract when you drink hot tea. In turn, this means that the surrounding tooth structure will not be damaged by cracking or expansion, so the fillings will last longer too!

Orthodontics

Adult orthodontics are becoming more common and, with the use of aligners such as Invisalign, hidden braces like Incognito and of course the old reliable metal braces, you can rest assured that you will achieve the straighter smile that you want.

When you come to us, we will assess your suitability for each orthodontic appliance and will then decide on the tool that will get you the smile you want with the least inconvenience in the shortest time frame.

Dental implants

If you have lost a tooth to injury, decay or disease, then we may be able to replace it with a dental implant.

Affixed to the jaw, these implants fuse to the surrounding bone and act as a proxy root for the prosthetic teeth that will be attached to them. With the correct care, they can last up to 15 years and will look and feel just like natural teeth.

How to get a new smile in Glasgow

Braces

Our first method to help you get a new smile in Glasgow could be with braces. Through this procedure we would use a gentle application of pressure on specific areas of your crooked teeth to slowly turn them and make them look straighter.

Available to children and adults alike, having a neater smile can also have a number of health benefits such as reducing jaw pain, helping problems with speech and enabling proper access to all areas of the mouth for cleaning, thereby helping to prevent further dental problems.

Crowns

Another treatment we could possibly recommend may be crowns. This involves the use of a prosthetic covering or ‘crown’ over the top of a tooth. We normally use this to cover any damage of a tooth or as a cap on top of a tooth that has recently been cleared of decay, as a way to prevent further cavities from occurring. The covering is custom moulded to provide a comfortable seal to the top of your tooth.

At Dental FX our highly trained team will shape and shade your crown to provide you with a natural looking replacement that will help restore your smile.

Veneers

Similar to crowns, our team might suggest you try veneers to help cover any damage to your teeth such as chips and cracks in the enamel covering. Using shaped slivers of porcelain we can help restore your teeth to their previous pristine condition.

It’s a fairly non invasive procedure that is relatively short, so it’s perfect for fast repairs to teeth from accidents or injury.

 Dental implants

If you have any badly damaged teeth that are causing you problems or there are a few gaps that need filling in, dental implants may be the treatment you need. We use a porcelain prosthetic, attached to a sterilised titanium screw, as a replacement for the tooth you have lost or need removing due to damage. The screw is inserted below your gum line and into your jawbone with the goal of having the bone heal back around it over time to seal it in place and provide a sturdy bedrock for the implant upon which the crown can be fitted.

Teeth whitening

As we get older our teeth can start to lose that milky white sheen as they yellow and become discoloured. This can happen for a number of reasons, but it commonly tends to occur from things in someone’s diet, such as wine and coffee, or if they smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco based products.

In our whitening treatments we use a bleaching gel over the course of a series of sessions which you can have performed at the practice, or by yourself at home with one of our custom-made kits to slowly brighten your teeth. Whether it’s for that special occasion, upcoming job interview or just a little confidence booster, our teeth whitening treatments will help restore your smile.

These are just a few treatments that we have available to help you. If you would like to schedule an appointment to find out what we can do to put the dazzle back into your smile, then get in touch with our team.
