How a dentist can solve the UK’s top cosmetic dental concerns

A dentist is vitally important to your health and wellbeing at all stages of life. At Liverpool Smile Studio we welcome new patients of all ages for general, preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Here, we look at how your Liverpool cosmetic dentist can solve some of the UK’s top aesthetic dental issues.

This is the most frequently heard cosmetic dental complaint in the UK, and at LiverpoolSmile Studio your dentist has many ways to solve it. The best type of treatment will depend on what has caused the discolouration in the first place.

Teeth whitening is a popular way to remove common stains such as those caused by tea, coffee, or smoking. As long as a dentist carries it out it is a safe and efficient method of removing such tooth stains in a short time period.

Permanent discolouration won’t be affected by tooth whitening. Instead, your Liverpool dentist may recommend the use of one or more porcelain veneers to bring a darkened tooth/teeth into unity with the rest of your teeth.

2) Gummy smile

When too much gum tissue – or not enough of your teeth – are on show, this is described as a gummy smile. Some people also refer to this as having short teeth – it’s unlikely your teeth are particularly short, they may just be covered up.

Your Liverpool cosmetic dentist can gently and painlessly remove excess gum tissue to expose more of your teeth. Sometimes we will also combine this with veneers for a true smile makeover.

3) Broken teeth

With all the safety precautions in the world, teeth can still be broken in accidents or injuries that involve the head or face. At our Liverpool dental practice a dentist may use composite bonding (with white filling material) or cosmetic crowns to restore broken teeth.

4) Missing teeth

Tooth loss happens, and the important thing is not to fret about it, but instead to contact your dentist straight away. At Liverpool Smile Studio we offer a range of tooth replacement solutions, but the most long-term and natural-acting option is dental implants.
