One in Four of Us Isn’t
According to a recent survey carried out by the British Dental Health Foundation, in conjunction with Invisalign, one in four of us are less than happy with our smile, and nearly half feel it affects their levels of self-confidence. Nearly three quarters of us will actively avoid smiling in photos, and those fond of taking selfies will often touch up the results, and men are the worst culprits for this habit!

If you are unhappy with your smile then there is no need to feel this way as it is easy to get professional advice from Dr Amina Abdel-Karim on how to improve it. There are lots of different things that can be done, including tooth whitening, orthodontics, dental bonding, porcelain veneers and crowns, or even dental implants in London to replace missing teeth.
The choice is pretty comprehensive, and although some of these treatments may be quite lengthy, others are pretty quick and eminently affordable. For example, dental bonding usually only takes one appointment and can significantly improve your smile, providing results that can last several years. Other treatments such as dental veneers or crowns will cost a bit more, but can last ten years or more if properly looked after. Of course it could be that all that’s required is a professional cleaning perhaps combined with tooth whitening, as this can give your smile a massive boost with the minimum of fuss.
Always Wanted Straighter Teeth? Now is Your Chance
Orthodontics in London is becoming increasingly popular, and is no longer just for children or teenagers. In fact a considerable percentage of orthodontic patients are now adult, and for good reason. The days of having to wear a mouthful of metal for years on end is long gone, and today modern systems such as Invisalign can often straighten out pretty complicated cases of malocclusion within a year. Some people will not even require this level of treatment, and may be able to use one of the even faster cosmetic braces that are readily available at Glow Dental.
These include Invisalign, as it is possible to opt for a system that only uses seven different aligners to move the front teeth into position, or another type of removable aligner called the Inman Aligner. This uses two titanium springs to power thin metal bows that fit across the front and inner surfaces of teeth. These squeeze the teeth into position and treatment is very effective and affordable. An alternative solution would be to have fixed braces, but these don’t use highly visible metal brackets and wires. Instead Fastbraces uses very discreet thin metal brackets, or nearly invisible ceramic brackets to precisely reposition teeth much more quickly than conventional braces.
It is highly likely that you will have quite a few different options on how to improve your smile, and each choice will be carefully explained by Glow Dental. This should enable you to make an informed choice about how much, or how little you’d like to change the appearance of your teeth.
