A smile has a major impact on human psychology. It builds trust, reduces tension and facilitates smooth communication. But the problem is everyone does not grow up with a perfect smile. However, the latest version of cosmetic dentistry allows you to enhance your teeth along with the smile in the perfect way they are expected. In this circumstance, it is obvious that cosmetic dentistry was never more popular at any time ever in the past.  

According to a research, conducted recently in London, some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments include the following:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns and
  • Bridges


Porcelain dental veneers are also popularly known as sometimes called porcelain laminates. Actually, it is a thin layer of porcelain that is made to custom-fit over the front surface of your tooth. This treatment approach is somewhat similar to putting false fingernail at the finger tops for added attraction.   

This latest cosmetic dentistry solution is appropriate in situations where the original molars has undergone discolouration or is misshapen. It also helps overcome the problems of fractured tooth and gaps existing between the adjacent ones. Stains present in molars may not respond well to the whitening treatment for some people. Veneers made from porcelain provide a smart solution to their problem.

Teeth whitening

As you get older, with passage of time, your dental crowns are prone to undergo discolouration. The whitening treatment helps removing unsightly stains from the surface and it indeed improves your appearance.

However, teeth whitening procedure is never a one-time solution. Moreover, it is also not suitable for people who suffer from gum diseases or have crowns.


The solution in, the form of crowns, is normally prescribed by dentists in the following cases:

  • A particular tooth has become severely weak and needs to be restored artificially.
  • A tooth has turned acutely discolored
  • There is a genuine cosmetic goal to achieve in a case.

Usually, dental crowns are fixed prosthetic tools and these are available in a number of varieties, which include porcelain, ceramic, resin and even stainless steel. However, crowns that are meant for cosmetic purpose are normally made of ceramic or porcelain.

Dental Bridges

Like crowns, bridges too are normally fixed prosthodontics devices. This treatment is recommended when patients miss their molars. Gaps along the jawline formed by missing teeth can lead to bad bite issue. Moreover, the remaining teeth may try to drift into the empty space resulting in distortion of your facial outline. Besides, they also help to avoid the problem of TMJ disorder.

Dental implants

These cosmetic dentistry tools are man-made replacement for the root of your missing tooth, which are usually made of biocompatible substance like titanium. These are directly fitted into the gap of the lost tooth to hold the artificial crown in place – much like the natural ones.

Qualified dentist in Battersea ensures, this specialized solution looks, feels and works exactly like one’s original molars. Moreover, the implant solution is durable enough to last for a lifetime, provided it is properly cared for.
