Exactly how do you feel about your smile? Sure, it feels great to chew confidently without worrying about teeth shifting or moving and it feels wonderful to have the firm, facial structures your teeth help support. It feels excellent to talk as you always did, and to eat what you want, when you want.
But how does having a healthy, happy smile really make you feel?
We smile when we are happy, we show our teeth whilst expressing ourselves, when we meet friends or family, and when we say thanks or communicate our wishes to others. So a really strong, natural, happy smile that is healthy does far more than function physically; it has a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves. Understanding how integral an attractive and healthy smile is in relation to how you feel about yourself is really important, so you can look at improving your smile, in a way that also improves your confidence.
Your Smile And Your Confidence
A smile is incredibly important when it comes to a person's confidence, for many different reasons.
Expression & Communication
We express ourselves using our smile, in lots of different ways. Visually you let people know you are happy with your smile. You also speak using your teeth, tongue and lips, which allows you to let people know what you are thinking, feeling and what you want them to know. Your teeth help you exhibit emotions and your smile is a massive part of self expression.
From reality TV stars sharing their aesthetic secrets, to dental technology becoming so advanced it is able to replace not only the tooth but the tooth root, cosmetic dentistry is officially here and able to give you the smile you have always wanted.
Cosmetic dentistry is now more accessible than ever and is readily available here at your local Egham dentist. From dental veneers to complete smile makeovers, we offer a full range of treatments to rejuvenate your smile and hopefully enhance your confidence as a result.
If you've been thinking of having your smile make over and don't know where to start, please keep reading! We'll give you an excellent starting point for your research so you're well on your way to having that 'perfect smile' for 2019.
Who Is Suitable For Cosmetic Dentistry?
All kinds of patients have these transformative treatments, and the extent of the treatment is individual to the person. Common issues to correct can include:
Gaps in your smile
Stained or yellowing teeth
Receding or excess gums
Often, patients come to visit us at our professional Egham clinic in preparation for an event like a wedding or an important job interview. Other patients have regular treatments as a part of their beauty routine.
In some instances, the techniques we provide can change lives significantly for the better. A patient may have spent years covering their mouth whilst they laugh or talk, avoided dates or job interviews and generally experienced low confidence because of a smile they hate. Following treatment to give them their dream smile, patients can feel they have been given their life back with a renewed sense of confidence and self esteem.
Spruce up your smile ready for summer at Crown House Dental in Egham!
Selfies are fun everyday, when we do fun things. They are even more fun though, when we have holiday experiences to shout about. Hotdog legs, selfies with a drink by the pool, stories of adventures and perfectly clear sea water and white sand. Who wouldn't want to brag about that with a quick selfie? Regardless of whether you're going to Blackpool or Bermuda, there's one thing that makes any selfie stand out, and that is a beautiful smile. Your smile says you're having a great time, it says you're happy, and it makes literally any outfit look great!
Do you feel your smile is at its best? Are you confident about your smile? Or would you love to have a smile that was whiter or straighter?
Here at your Egham dentist we have a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can turn your smile up a notch, and hopefully help you feel some restored confidence in what should be one of your greatest assets. Check out these cosmetic dentistry treatments for the perfect selfie smile this summer:
We use an at home whitening system called Polanight which is just as effective as in-house teeth whitening. It uses specially made trays and whitening gel which you use together every night for around 7 to 10 nights until we reassess the colour of your teeth. It is the perfect pre-holiday treatment for anybody wanting a bright, white smile that helps rejuvenate the whole face.
Our hygienists can provide a scale and polish to give the teeth a quick boost before your holiday. It gets rid of any surface stains and cleans the teeth so they look fresh and beautiful for your trip.
What are your options at Crown House Dental in Egham?
Are you feeling really unsure what to ask Santa for this Christmas? Is this because you have an idea of something really special you would love, but you don't really know how to get it?
If what you really want this Christmas is the smile of your dreams, maybe it is time to book a consultation with your Egham dentist?
There are many modern treatments available to help resolve a wide range of cosmetic smile issues, ranging all the way from ridding you of dark tooth staining, to completely transforming the shape and appearance of your smile!
Teeth whitening is probably the most well known cosmetic dentistry procedure because so many celebrities have it done regularly, and promote the treatment as part of their everyday beauty regimen. It is a very cost effective way to rejuvenate the look of the teeth, particularly where the staining or yellowing is quite pronounced.
Veneers And Bonding
Veneers are a more permanent solution where teeth are very badly discoloured, chipped or cracked. They can also be used to mask minor alignment issues. Cosmetic bonding can be used to reshape teeth but it is less of a permanent solution than veneers and may need replacing reasonably frequently in comparison. Porcelain veneers in particular, can produce a stunning new smile and are designed to last a long-time.
Adult Teeth Straightening
There is still plenty of this year left, so why think about the New Year now you might ask? The thing is, certain types of dentistry do take time to accomplish. For example, teeth whitening at home may well take a few weeks to see results. Or perhaps a complete smile makeover might be your goal, which could take months to achieve the desired results because of the range of treatments involved.
It may be that you need to start saving now to afford the treatment of your dreams before Christmas, or you might be able to set some time aside now whereas you may get busier later in the year? Regardless of which amazing and transformational treatment you would like, now is the time to start thinking about your smile and how you want it to look going into 2018.
Tooth whitening is always popular, but especially at this time of the year when everybody wants to have their smile looking amazing for the forthcoming party season, and ready for the New Year. Here at your Egham dentist we use a system called 'Polanight' which uses a special product to lighten the teeth and which requires an initial assessment to determine your suitability for the treatment.
Once we have checked the treatment is right for you, we take impressions of your teeth so we can make unique tooth whitening trays just for you. We will then show you how to apply the special whitening gel and complete the whitening at home either during the day or overnight. The treatment is extremely effective but isn't complete in one session, so it is worth planning ahead if you want to see the full effects before New Year.
As we leave the many (many) Easter egg wrappers behind and start thinking ahead to summer, personal aesthetics start to become important again.
Summer means less layers to hide behind, and maybe even the potential to sport a bikini or two. This is frightening enough for some of us, but what if you felt a lack of confidence all year round, and worse, under confident about a part of your body always on show?
Here at Crown House Dental in Egham, we understand that many people have a real problem with their teeth. Staining over the years, never addressing a childhood bite issue, overcrowding, chipped teeth, sports injuries: there are so many reasons a person can lose confidence in their teeth and smile. This lack of confidence can cause avoidance of the dentist, avoidance of social situations, and it may even cause a person to cover their teeth with their hand when they laugh or talk.
If this is you, this summer, why not take control of your smile again and get the dental treatment you deserve? Your Egham dentist has a wide variety of treatments to help you get a fully restored, beautiful smile - just imagine laughing without having to worry about your teeth, or smiling just because you want to show off your pearly whites!
How We Can Help You Get Your Smile Back
Here at your local Egham dentist we offer all the latest cosmetic dentistry treatments including teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, adult teeth straightening and more. We know that today's society is highly influenced by celebrity culture, and many people want to replicate celebrity smiles.
What we often see is a perfect smile and wonder how we could achieve that look ourselves. Well, we're not ones to gossip at your local Egham Dentist, but here are some rumoured celebrity dental transformations and how they are rumoured to have been created, so you can gain more of an idea of how an A list celebrity smile is achieved:
50 Cent used to have a large gap in his front teeth and it is rumoured to have been fixed using cosmetic dentistry. He didn't have everything perfected though as he wanted to retain some individuality to his smile.
Miley Cyrus did have invisible braces during her childhood but apparently opted for more extensive cosmetic dentistry as she ventured into more edgy songs and a more edgy image.
Demi Moore is famous for having had a lot of cosmetic surgery on her face and body, so it makes sense that she also had extensive cosmetic dentistry to ensure she has a beautiful smile to match. Before all the work, her teeth were allegedly quite stained and crooked, whereas veneers are said to have resulted in her having a perfectly straight and white smile.
Jim Carrey actually used his chipped tooth as a quirky aesthetic which landed him (along with his acting talent) jobs such as The Mask and Pet Detective. Later on he had the tooth bonded but sometimes removes it for comedy effect if we are to believe what we read in the press.
Catherine Zeta Jones
Here at Crown House Dental in Egham we offer a wide variety of cost-effective treatments using both general and cosmetic dentistry techniques. Amongst these are our very popular treatments which focus on restoring your smile back to being healthy and looking great.
There are many different types of treatments available and which one suits your needs really comes down to the outcome you want, and the current health status of your smile. What is exciting, is that techniques are available ranging from those to correct minor issues, all the way to completely transforming severe dental problems. There are usually various options to help restore even the most damaged smile.
If you are considering restorative dentistry, there are lots of things to consider such as:
● What are the problems I have with my smile?
● What would I like to change about my smile?
● What is my budget for getting my smile fixed?
● How much time do I have to get my smile restored?
● How much work do I want doing? Is it a minor adjustment, or a complete makeover?
Most commonly, people want restorative dentistry to fix things like crowded, misshapen, stained, gappy, missing or overlapping teeth. Often the issues will have been bothering a person for some time before they visit us. Things like dental stains can be fixed using tooth whitening, but if the staining or discolouration runs deeply (something we can only find out after an examination), veneers may be more of a suitable option.
Considerations before transforming your smile in Egham
At your local Egham dentist, we offer a wide range of general dentistry including fillings, oral health checks, root canal treatments, and more.
What you may not know is that we also offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments including, but not limited to: complete smile makeovers, tooth whitening, veneers and adult orthodontics.
As the new year gets into full swing, you might be considering some cosmetic dentistry. It might be your reward for quitting smoking, or starting healthy new habits?
Perhaps you have always put off having your smile made over because of other financial commitments, or because you were always worried about having it done, but now, everything is in place and it feels like the right time to progress? This is fantastic news for you and we'll be pleased to help you get the A list smile you deserve. However, here at your local Egham dentist, we always put you first, so if you are considering cosmetic dentistry, it is worth thinking about whether or not it is right for you first.
Cosmetic dentistry can transform a person's life, giving them the confidence they never had, enabling them to be the person they always wanted to be. But it isn't right for everyone. We will always ensure you have a detailed and lengthy consultation with us to ensure that any treatment is the right option for you, but in the meantime, please consider the following to help you decide if it is the right time for you to transform your smile:
Cosmetic dentistry is more affordable now than it ever was before, and there are payment plans and various treatment price points available. Before you decide on cosmetic dentistry it is a great idea to do a bit of research to get an idea of different prices for different types of treatment. You should also be aware that certain treatments may need maintenance over the years, costing a little more money. When you visit us for your consultation we can offer you a completely transparent price plan to give you an idea of individual costs for your treatment plan.
Happy New Year from Crown House Dental in Egham! We hope that 2017 is set to bring great things for you. Perhaps you've already started your New Year's resolutions and you're eating healthier, quitting smoking, starting a new hobby, or any other amazing resolution set to improve your life for the better.
As you're cracking on with getting 2017 on the right track, perhaps it's time to think about aspects of yourself you perhaps always wanted to improve? Many patients come to us in the New Year thinking about their smile, considering cosmetic dentistry to transform their smile into the 'A list' grin they always wanted. There are many different reasons people want cosmetic dentistry including:
● Wanting a smile like a celebrity
● Wanting to improve on an already great smile
● Wanting the perfect smile!
● Correcting an old dental injury or issue
● To brighten stained teeth
● To completely transform a smile that has perhaps deteriorated over time, and causes embarrassment
● To straighten a crooked smile
● To correct tooth gaps
● To bring shape back to the face, through replacing missing teeth
These are just some of the reasons patients speak to us about aesthetic dentistry, everyone has an individual story and circumstance, and that is the way we treat every patient, as an individual. We understand that often, emotions can run high with how a person feels about their smile, and getting a new smile can be an emotional journey for many different reasons. With our understanding and professional manner, we ensure every patient is supported through this emotional and transformational journey.
