1. Why is it so important to maintain dental health?

Maintaining your teeth and gums as you age is an important step in sustaining your general health and wellbeing. Whilst exercising, eating right and regular health checks are important – looking after your teeth and gums is also essential. Good dental health will help you to lead a long, happy and healthy life.

2. What can I do to improve the health and appearance of my smile?

If your teeth become damaged, lost or simply worn over time, there are a number of options available to treat these problems.

If teeth are lost, then Implants, Dentures or Bridges may be an option for you.

If a tooth needs rebuilding, then Crowns, Inlays or Onlays could be the solution. For cosmetic changes, Tooth Whitening, Veneers and Bonding are amongst some of the treatments that you could consider.

If your  teeth need straighten (Orthodontics) then there are procedures such as Invisalign, Inman Aligners and Six months smiles.

3. What are the main benefits of quality dental treatment?

Achieving optimal dental health has the power to change your life for the better. Just a few of the major benefits, dental treatment may provide include:

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Improved oral health and general wellbeing
  • Improved facial appearance
  • Improved comfort
  • Improved speech
  • Improved dietary habits and nutrition

4. Who is a candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry treatment?

Previously, little could be done to attain the smile you always dreamed of. The treatments available to treat chipped, stained or crooked teeth were limited. Yet, today with the vast range of Cosmetic Dentistry treatments available, every smile can be aesthetically enhanced.

5. What’s the best way to prevent gum disease?

Conscientious removal of plaque by flossing, brushing and regular professional cleanings will minimise your risk of gum disease. However, there are other factors that can affect the health of your gums, such as stress, diabetes, genetics and pregnancy.
