There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures available today in many cosmetic dentistry clinics in Essex. One of these is accelerated orthodontics:
As the name implies,accelerated orthodontics refers to modern cosmetic dentistry procedures that yield much faster results than traditional braces. While traditional braces can take up to 3 years before good results can be achieved,accelerated orthodontics can get results in a very short time,usually less than six months . The process of accelerated orthodontics addresses teeth problems such as gaps between the teeth,crooked teeth and teeth that need repositioning.
The process of accelerated orthodontics involves periodontal surgery,about a week after the braces are fixed. It is normally done under local anesthesia. Due to the fact that the teeth are changing position a lot faster than is the case for ordinary braces,some itching might be experienced by the patient. Frequent follow up visits to the cosmetic dentist are necessary after the procedure is done to check on the progress of the teeth. Some cosmetic dentists find it necessary for the patient to periodically wear a retainer to keep the teeth in position.
This procedure leads to less bone loss than traditional braces. It also achieves results a lot faster.
In cases where the teeth are overcrowded,it might be necessary to slim them down in order to create extra room for the teeth to move. Due to the newness of the procedure,it is sometimes difficult to find specialists who are trained in giving this treatment.
Dental lumineers are ultra thin veneers that are made from cerinate. They are very strong but much thinner than conventional lab-fabricated veneers. Many people equate them with contact lenses,only that they are worn on the teeth and not on the eyes. They are about 0.2mm thick and are highly translucent. Since they are so thin,very little teeth grinding is necessary before fitting them and in many cases none at all. They are good at resisting micro-cracking and micro-leakage. Lumineers are ideal when the teeth are not too crooked. The great news with these devices is that they are removable.
It is important for the patient to learn how to overcome dental phobia,a common phobia with many people. Many people who have not visited a dentist for many years fear that the dentists will ridicule them. This is ,however,not true and cosmetic dentists are professionals who are dedicated to helping you get a great smile at the least possible discomfort. They will also offer you sound advice on how to maintain your teeth in perfect condition. Most of the cosmetic dentistry procedures are done under local anesthetic and there is therefore little or no pain felt by the patient. Just in case you experience too much discomfort during any procedure,do not hesitate to let the dentist know.
