As a cosmetic dentist in Glasgow it is necessary to possess the skill of attention to detail. The cosmetic dentist effectively has to strive to mimic the unique dental attributes that mother nature has given to each of us. No two people are the same so for this reason a patient’s dental features must be recorded to be able to make a comparison after treatment. A patient’s bite, the natural colour of their teeth, the shape of their teeth, the contour of the teeth and the face are just some of the details that must be considered. It takes a certain skill and art to be able to not only meet a patient’s expectations but to aim to exceed those expectations.
Primary goal is always functionality
Our teeth are designed to primarily reduce our food to a state that allows our stomach juices to digest that food. The first priority of this cosmetic dentist in Glasgow is always to ensure that a patient’s teeth work as nature intended them to work.
Seek relief early
Unfortunately a large section of the population in the UK suffers from some form of malocclusion, misaligned teeth. This condition arises when your teeth do not meet and there is an overbite, an underbite, a mouthful of too many teeth or crooked teeth as well as many more conditions. To correct this, orthodontic treatment is required and orthodontics is an area of cosmetic dentistry. The younger a patient is introduced to the dental surgery the sooner the condition can be identified and treated. This dentist recommends bringing in your children, if you have any, from a very young age, even if they still have their baby teeth. This allows the dental team to develop a relationship with them which prevents them from suffering from dental anxiety later. The dentist also gets the opportunity to examine their oral cavity and identify any condition that may cause problems in the future.
Latest technology for teeth and gums
Fortunately dental science has harnessed the power of modern technology to develop a variety of dental appliances and equipment including software to aid in orthodontic treatments. To correct misaligned teeth a new range of modern dental braces and aligners have been created alongside scanners which can take thousands of pictures of your oral cavity and produce clear and complete views. It is even possible to show a patient a virtual image of how their teeth will look after treatment, before treatment commences. Gum reshaping is another cosmetic procedure which is sometimes required to treat periodontal disease.
Improving a patient’s appearance
Cosmetic dentistry also includes a variety of aesthetic treatments to enhance a patient’s appearance. Before whitening a patient’s teeth it is always necessary to conduct an examination to determine the cause of any dental discolouration. Certain dental stains can reveal an underlying condition such as liver disease. In addition to dental procedures, this dental surgery offers a range of skin smoothing treatments such as Botox and Dermal fillers. Cosmetic dentistry provides patients with the opportunity to eat and speak properly and to enjoy a facial appearance that they can be proud of.
