Orthodontics is the field of dentistry which is involved in improving the position of your teeth using dental braces Liverpool.

braces-liverpool

Most people face varying degrees of misalignment of their teeth and this is a common issue which can be treated early in life by orthodontic treatment. Other issues include crookedness, protruding teeth, wonky teeth, overcrowding of the teeth and gaps in the teeth, factors which not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but can also result in poor oral health. The use of dental braces helps improve the look of your smile and also promotes better oral health. When teeth are aligned properly, it is easier to keep them clean and healthy, because the surface of each tooth is exposed and they can be brushed more effectively. Whereas with wonky or crooked teeth there are hard-to-reach areas in which plaque can build up and lead to the formation of tartar which results in many detrimental dental issues. Speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio to find out how braces can help improve your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile at the same time.

Speak to your dentist about braces today

To find out about having braces Liverpool you will require a full examination with your dentist to make sure that your teeth are clean and healthy, as this is very important for orthodontic treatment. Once the dentist is happy that you are eligible for orthodontic treatment, X-rays and scans will be carried out of your teeth to create an accurate prediction of what successful treatment with braces can do for your smile. According to your dental requirements and personal preferences the dentist will be able to suggest which treatment options are available and most suitable for your teeth.

Different types of braces for orthodontic treatment

Advances in dental technology have resulted in the development of many different types of orthodontic braces to meet the demands of this generation. Conventional braces, made out of metal brackets and wires, which are commonly seen in teenagers, are the most effective type of orthodontic treatment and are attached directly to the front of the teeth altering the positioning of misaligned teeth using gentle pressure over a period of time, until the teeth have reached their optimal positions. Although these are the most widespread and commonly used form of orthodontic braces, they are highly visible in the mouth and therefore there is a reluctance amongst the adult population to consider this treatment option. Previously people have settled with the aesthetic imperfections of their teeth, because they were too embarrassed or uncomfortable about considering metal braces if they had not had them fitted at an earlier age.

Much research and design has led to the introduction and establishment of many different types of orthodontics which have been developed with discretion and comfort in mind. If this is what you are looking for then speak to us at our practice today and find out about the different types of braces which are available for you. We look forward to hearing from you and we can help you smile beautifully and confidently very soon.

Due to advances in dental technology and the increasing demand for a perfect smile by today’s generation, cosmetic dentistry has become discreet, convenient and accessible to all.

Here at Liverpool Smile Studio, home treatment kits are available for whitening your teeth or if you would like to have your whitening carried out by your dentist, then find out about what we can offer by booking a consultation today.

Enlighten and Zoom teeth whitening

The Enlighten tooth whitening treatment is a home whitening kit which has been designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. It includes day and night treatments which consist of custom-made dental trays holding the Enlighten whitening gel that increases the permeability of your teeth to oxygen. This helps break down stain molecules on the surface of your enamel, to restore the shine and whiteness of your teeth.

If you would like to have your teeth whitening carried out by our dentist Liverpool then speak to us about Zoom whitening. Zoom whitening is carried out by our dentist Liverpool in the practice and is a quick and effective teeth whitening method which involves a bleaching process. This can only be carried out by a dentist and is achieved by applying a bleach directly onto your teeth, which is then activated using a lamp and helps break up the stains on the surface of your teeth.

According to your personal preference you may choose to have either a home whitening kit or have your treatment carried out by your dentist, so speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio to find out more, so you can decide which treatment option is better for you.

Veneers for a perfect smile

If teeth staining is not your only concern, but you also suffer from other aesthetic issues involving your teeth or damage to your teeth such as a chipped or broken tooth, then you may want to speak to our dentist Liverpool about veneers. Veneers are thin porcelain shells which are individually tailored for you and they are attached to the front surface of your teeth to disguise any imperfections which may have occurred either due to poor oral hygiene or as a result of an accident or trauma to your mouth. They can provide a natural look where they are designed to match the rest of your teeth or they can be designed to improve your teeth in general. You may choose to have a single veneer to mask the issues of one tooth in particular or you may choose to have a full set of veneers to transform your smile completely. Speak to our practice today and find out more about how you can improve the look of your smile very soon.

A good dental hygiene routine is an important part of life which needs to be instilled from an early age and is essential for maintaining good oral health and overall wellbeing at the same time. Visiting your dentist on a regular basis will help ensure that your dental hygiene routine is effective and will also improve the condition of your teeth, by carrying out professional cleaning where necessary, and detecting and preventing any issues before they are able to cause any damage or complications.

If your teeth are clean and your gums are healthy, but you are unhappy with the look of your smile, then speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio and book a consultation with our orthodontist to find out how we can help improve the aesthetics of your smile.  Orthodontic treatment commonly uses dental braces to improve the positioning of a patient’s teeth to create a beautiful smile and promote better oral health. Orthodontic treatment requires your teeth to be clean and healthy and your orthodontist Liverpool will ensure that you have no underlying dental issues which may be exacerbated by the process or may affect the results of your treatment. Once you book an appointment with us you will undergo a full examination of your mouth and then you will have X-rays and scans carried out to create images of what successful treatment will look like for your smile. These will also help create individually tailored braces for you according to the treatment option that you and your orthodontist Liverpool decide on, subject to your dental requirements and your personal preferences.

Different types of braces for orthodontic treatment

Orthodontics have developed significantly over the last few decades to meet the increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry. Conventionally, orthodontic treatment is carried out using metal braces, which consist of wires and brackets that effectively alter the positioning of the teeth and improve issues such as misalignment, crookedness, wonky teeth, protruding teeth and other aesthetic aspects of the mouth, helping improve oral health at the same time. Although this is the most effective method of orthodontic treatment there is a reluctance amongst adults to consider these types of braces, because of the high visibility of the wires and brackets in the mouth. The last few decades have seen the introduction of invisible orthodontics which work in a similar fashion by applying gentle pressure to the teeth and altering their position into a more preferred and the suitable positioning. Invisible orthodontics are designed to be discreet and almost invisible in the mouth, so that no one will have to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you would like them to.

Invisible braces include lingual braces which are attached to the inside of your teeth or other options such as invisible aligners that, as the name suggests, are almost invisible, providing comfort and convenience at the same time. Speak to our orthodontist Liverpool here at our dental studio and find out more about the different types of orthodontics available and which treatment option may be the most suitable for you.

Despite good oral hygiene and orthodontic treatment at an early age, there are issues which may affect the look of your teeth and your smile from time to time. Due to the increase in demand, with the introduction of the internet and social media, cosmetic dentistry has advanced rapidly over the last few decades. Much research and design has been carried out and there are now many different options available to help improve the aesthetics of your smile.

A good oral hygiene routine is essential in maintaining a beautiful smile, however, despite good brushing techniques, over the course of life your teeth may naturally become stained or yellow and this can affect your self-confidence and make you feel uncomfortable about your smile. There are some situations which are unavoidable, such as an accident or physical trauma to your mouth and unfortunately this may result in damage to the surface of your  tooth. You may have a chipped tooth or teeth or you may even have a broken tooth that is affecting the way you feel about your smile. If you are experiencing any of these issues then speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio today. We have many different treatment options available which can help deal with your dental needs and here at our practice, veneers have become a highly popular choice of treatment to resolve many aesthetic issues with the mouth and teeth. Other problems such as crookedness or gaps in the teeth which are not suitable for orthodontic treatment can also be treated using veneers Liverpool. Book a consultation with our dentist to find out more about how they may be the most suitable treatment option for you.

What are veneers?

Veneers Liverpool are thin porcelain shells that are attached to the surface of the tooth to mask any imperfections which may be present. They are designed according to your personal requirements and preferences. They can either be coloured to match your teeth to provide a natural look, or if you are looking into veneers to disguise the discolouration or yellowing of your teeth then you may like to consider whiter and brighter shades of veneers for a more attractive look. According to the dental situation you find yourself in you may choose to have a single veneer or if you are looking for a smile makeover, then you may choose to have a set of veneers covering the surface of multiple teeth, to give a more seamless finish and a more beautiful smile overall. Veneers are used in the treatment of gaps in the teeth and help provide a symmetry to the setting of your teeth. They are to be treated like your natural dentition and therefore require you to continue a good dental hygiene routine. An added advantage is that, unlike natural teeth which can stain due to smoking or certain foods and drinks, veneers Liverpool are stain resistant and therefore you are able to keep your smile looking beautiful without having to adjust your lifestyle choices.

Straightening out your oral health

braces-in-liverpool

At Liverpool Smile Studio we want all of our patients to know that we’re behind them 100% and that – while a lot may have changed over the past year – our commitment and dedication to creating beautiful smiles is something that’s remained consistent throughout.

We know that getting regular dental care and treatments such as braces Liverpool has been difficult, as national lockdown measures and uncertainty have made things harder than ever before.

Now, however, we are delighted to report that our practice has fully reopened and our dedicated professionals are now providing anyone who needs them with braces and other forms of discreet orthodontics.

Why seek our braces Liverpool?

If the lockdown has taught us anything, it is the value of self-care and self-preservation – and a huge part of that, we feel, starts with taking care of your teeth.

Having crooked and out-of-place teeth can not only cause a lot of social problems which can have a worsening detrimental effect on your mental health and confidence over time, but can also lead to several dental health problems.

As those with crooked teeth have more uneven spaces and gaps between their teeth, there is a far higher likelihood of plaque and food particles becoming lodged within these spaces.

If this plaque isn’t removed when brushing – which is highly likely given their tough to reach nature – then it can develop into decay, abscesses, or spread to their gums and cause gingivitis or periodontal disease.

This is the second most common cause of tooth loss in all adults across the UK (after trauma-related injury) and is entirely preventable should the correct measures be taken, such as seeking out braces Liverpool from us here at Liverpool Smile Studio.

What type of braces can I get?

At Liverpool Smile Studio we are happy to report that we offer our patients a broad range of orthodontic treatments which range from the traditional and conventional to more discreet, cosmetic solutions.

Fixed braces, which are the most widely recognised type of braces we offer, act by attaching brackets to each individual tooth, and connecting them with a metallic tension wire. Over time, this wire pulls each tooth together until they eventually are fully aligned.

Alongside traditional fixed braces, we also provide more discreet options here at Liverpool Smile Studio, such as Invisalign.

What’s Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative form of orthodontics that has developed a massive following over the past few years – particularly amongst our younger patients.

Rather than fixing brackets and wires to your teeth, the Invisalign method aims to straighten your smile, without leaving an impact on how you look during the process.

The Invisalign process achieves dental alignment through transparent dental retainers – each of which is custom built for every patient.

Within the construction of every unique retainer our orthodontist places pressure points and grooves which aim to apply force to the teeth which have been identified as crooked and gradually move them closer together.

As nothing is ever bonded to your teeth, and you have the option to remove your transparent, discreet, retainer at any time throughout the entire process, Invisalign is found to be one of the most comfortable and relaxed ways of achieving a straighter, healthier smile.

Let yourself shine

dentist-in-liverpool

At Liverpool Smile Studio, it’s always been our main ambition to see our patients smile with the carefree confidence that comes with having a healthy set of teeth.

Sadly, however, we recognise that the past year has been a difficult one, without much cause for smiling – especially since visiting our dentist Liverpool for cosmetic or restorative treatments may not have been as easy as we’d have liked.

Thankfully we are happy to report that better times are right around the corner, as our practice is back to doing what we do best, and we can now provide all of the treatments and procedures that may have proved difficult to receive over the past year – such as cosmetic and restorative treatments.

What can a dentist Liverpool help with?

There are a thousand and one ways that our dentist in Liverpool can help your smile – as each smile is different and therefore requires a unique treatment plan and approach.

Rather than working a patient around any particular treatment, we believe in taking the opposite approach in which we work the treatment around the needs of each patient.

Whether you are unhappy with the straightness of your smile, its shade, the number of teeth you have, or just how your smile looks in general – at Liverpool Smile Studio we can help.

As our dentist Liverpool takes a tailored approach to any dental service we always advise that you book yourself in for a consultation and examination before settling on one particular treatment.

These consultations give our practitioners an opportunity to give your oral health a professional once-over and identify if there is any evidence of decay or gum disease which might prevent the success of any course of treatment.

They also give you (the patient) an opportunity to tell us in your own words exactly what you are looking for from our service, or – if you’re unsure – what your ideal smile would look like.

With this information in hand, we will then have all we need to create a specific and unique treatment schedule and plan which will get your smile to where you want it to be.

What can you do for discoloured teeth?

One of the most common problems that patients come to us about here at Liverpool Smile Studio is having teeth that are stained, yellow, or discoloured.

This has become especially pertinent since the recent national lockdown measures, which resulted in a lot of people snacking more frequently and somewhat neglecting their regular brushing habits.

However, if you feel this may describe you – have no fear. At Liverpool Smile Studio we are experts at getting your teeth looking their best, and we can achieve this either through cosmetic dental whitening or from a professional deep clean from our hygienist. Dental whitening uses a custom-built tray – made from a mould of each individual patient’s tooth shape – to place a controlled quantity of a hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel directly onto the patient’s teeth. This effectively burns away all superficial marks and stains from the patient’s enamel and leaves their smile remarkably whiter and fresher looking.

Getting back on track

orthodontist-liverpool

The past year has been a tough one for many of our patients here at Liverpool Smile Studio, as external factors beyond our control made getting help from our orthodontist Liverpool harder than ever.

Today we are proud to report to all our patients that our services have fully reopened and our practitioners are back to doing what they love – helping you smile with the carefree confidence that comes with having straight and healthy teeth.

Our orthodontists understand the strain that many have felt over the last year, as national lockdown and uncertainty pushed seeking our treatments like cosmetic braces or aligners to the backs of your mind.

We also recognise the toll which having visibly crooked and misshapen teeth can take on your social confidence and mental health – and want our patients to know that there is a far healthier approach than simply hiding your smile behind a facemask.

What can an orthodontist Liverpool do for me?

At Liverpool Smile Studio, we believe that having healthy teeth is key to a healthy, happy life.

We also recognise that just as no two teeth are ever identical, in order to get optimal results it is best to take a more patient-centred, bespoke approach.

This is why our orthodontist Liverpool always likes to start things off with a friendly consultation and preliminary examination – before settling on any one course of treatment.

Orthodontics is a far larger field of dental study than some people may think, and often patients are surprised when they learn that there are alternative routes to a straighter smile other than conventional, fixed braces.

This is why it’s always a good idea to speak with one of our non-judgmental, friendly, and approachable orthodontic experts before diving straight ahead with any one treatment, as you may be surprised at the number of options you have.

What types of orthodontics do you offer?

Our orthodontist in Liverpool regularly provides patients with a broad range of treatments that cover traditional fixed braces, as well as more cosmetic treatments such as transparent aligners or clear braces.

These alternative orthodontic treatments that we offer – such as Six Month Smiles or Invisalign – have become massively popular over recent years, particularly within the demographics of young adults and teenagers – as they give them an opportunity to realign their smile (improving both their oral health and appearance) without impacting on how they look throughout the process.

What is Six Month Smiles?

As you can probably derive from the name, Six Month Smiles is an alternative orthodontic treatment method that aims to realign a patient’s smile discreetly – in just six months or less.

This is achieved through the use of a transparent bracket system that uses tooth-coloured materials to blend in perfectly with your surrounding teeth and therefore leaves little to no impact on how you look.

Alongside being a faster and more discreet method of dental alignment, Six Month Smiles is also considered to be a less invasive and therefore more comfortable method of getting a straighter smile. If you’d like to find out whether a treatment such as Six Month Smiles could help get your oral health back on track, simply contact us here at Liverpool Smile Studio and arrange a consultation with one of our discreet orthodontic experts.

Awakening your smile’s potential

veneers-liverpool

At Liverpool Smile Studio we empathise with our numerous patients out there who have struggled over the past year to get the cosmetic care they would have liked to, such as veneers Liverpool, due to forces beyond anyone’s control.

We know that the national lockdown has been tough on everyone and that a lot of people’s oral health has suffered as a result. Throughout our many years of service, our highly trained and efficient practitioners have seen teeth in every conceivable condition – so nothing surprised them and we never pass judgment over anybody based on their oral health.

As normality slowly re-emerges here in the UK, we are urging all those who are unhappy with how their teeth look to visit our practice and speak with one of our expert cosmetic dental practitioners about your options.

What are veneers Liverpool?

Before the pandemic hit, veneers Liverpool were one of our most widely sought-after treatments and now that things are easing it is no surprise that interest and engagement around veneers are increasing once more.

Many people will probably recognise veneer treatment from the ‘perfect’ smiles of celebrities and movie stars – thanks to the treatment’s proven ability to effectively create an entirely new smile and address several cosmetic problems all at once.

Effectively, veneers are wafer-thin, porcelain shells that are bonded over the patient’s tooth to give it a new front. You can either get a single veneer for a chipped, stained, or broken tooth, or a full set of veneers to get a whole new, cohesive and whiter-looking smile.

Despite their popularity amongst the Hollywood-elite, veneers are not as expensive as you may think and here at Liverpool Smile Studio, we have treatment plans to suit every budget. 

What does veneer treatment involve?

As with every treatment we provide at Liverpool Smile Studio, the installation of veneers is always a unique and tailored undertaking, as the veneer shells are made individually for each patient.

This is why the first stage in getting veneers always starts with a friendly, informal, and informative consultation and dental examination. As we’ll need to construct shells that fit perfectly over, and blend in with your surrounding teeth, we usually take extensive photographs and size measurements during this initial examination.

We can then send these sizes and photographs to our veneer technicians who will begin creating your unique veneer shells using porcelain or composite resin.

Before we can instal your veneers properly our cosmetic expert will need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth – to allow the veneer to bond permanently.

After a thin layer of enamel has been removed, we then etch your teeth slightly before applying a strong dental adhesive. Once the adhesive is applied we then attach the veneers over each tooth individually which effectively covers it and gives it a sturdy and clean aesthetic.

Veneers are one of the most effective ways to treat multiple cosmetic problems at once. Whether you have dental staining, chips, gaps, or anything in between, veneers can be a one-stop solution which – if properly maintained – can keep your smile looking bright and white for up to 10 years.

Why might you need a brace or aligner?

Being blessed with the most perfectly aligned teeth does not happen to the majority of us. Our teeth may be crooked, have an overbite or underbite and whilst minor cases may be something you choose to live with, when facing moderate to severe misalignment it is often something we want to change. This is where braces Liverpool come into our lives.

braces-in-liverpool

What is a brace and how does it work?

A brace, which is often suited to the more moderate to severe cases of misalignment works by pulling the teeth over a period of time into a new aligned position. Brackets are bonded to the teeth and are connected by a wire, ensuring that the teeth are gradually put into place through the tightening of the wires. This particular treatment is considered to be the more traditional method as the idea of ‘train track’ braces has been around for some time. Unfortunately, due to the appearance of the metal brackets on the teeth which are not the most inconspicuous, many want to shy away from this method as they are embarrassed by their appearance. However, this no longer needs to be an issue as Six Month Smiles have taken on board the traditional method and made it more cosmetically appealing through the use of clear brackets and tooth coloured wires.

Why choose a brace over an aligner?

When considering the choice between braces Liverpool and an aligner it is important to understand that it is like choosing a new pair of shoes. Not only do they need to sit as comfortably as possible and appear appealing, they also need to be suitable for the situation. Aligners, which resemble a mouth guard, whilst often the more desired choice due to their subtle, transparent appearance, are best suited to the more mild to moderate misalignment issues. The devices are also easily removed and therefore temptation to deviate from the plan set out by the dental team can be tempting. The brace on the other hand can only be tightened and removed by the dentist. Whilst this may mean more dental appointments, the alignment plan cannot be easily deviated from, ensuring that the alignment process remains on track.

Who makes the choice?

In order to discover which alignment treatment will work best for your individual case, you will have a consultation with your dental team. During this time you will be able to discuss your preferences and listen to the expertise of your dental team. Guided by the knowledge provided and weighing up the different pros and cons will assist in coming to a decision with the dentist. This process, along with the actual treatment, requires teamwork from both you and your dental team. The treatment plan needs to work for you, the patient, as the end result is for your benefit and needs to be something you want to work towards.

Please note, all dental treatments and procedures, including the ones mentioned in this article, are recommended after a thorough consultation with our practice team determines the best braces Liverpool for you and your individual dental situation.

Reasons for regular check-ups

dentist-liverpool

Whilst visits to the doctor are generally on a need to go basis, trips to the dentist should be carried out approximately every six to twelve months, even when toothache and other dental issues do not appear apparent. These check-ups enable your dentist Liverpool to monitor and tweak your approach to oral hygiene at home, whilst also discovering any potential dental issues early on. Working through preventive dentistry rather than waiting for more intense treatments and procedures is the most beneficial way forward for every single patient no matter their age.

If you are a nervous patient

If you suffer from nerves surrounding visits to the dentist Liverpool, rest assured that you are not alone with your nerves. Believe it or not a nervous disposition involving a dental practice is more common than most realise and therefore our practice aims to make your visit as streamlined as possible. To do this, upon calling us up, inform us that you are nervous and have concerns. Our team will then discuss ways to make your visit a more pleasant experience.

Your best interests are our aim as well. After all, we want you to feel comfortable enough to return to us for all your visits going forward, so please let us do our best to work with you.

What about the cost?

Visits to the dentist Liverpool do not have to be a costly experience that you choose to avoid. Remaining very competitive in price and offering finance plans for the more expensive treatments and procedures enables us to assist you with taking care of your oral hygiene.

Keeping you fully informed throughout your journey with us

Whilst our teams have the knowledge and expertise, it is through a large amount of teamwork with you that we are able to provide you with your best chances of maintaining or gaining your beautiful smile.
