It is the start of a brand-new year and many of us are looking to 2021 for a more positive experience. We know things are still very difficult for everyone at present. Here at Aesthetique Dental Care in Leeds, we are still seeing patients for dental healthcare and have rigorous cleaning schedules in place, as well as following COVID-19 safety regulations.
With the onset of the new year, we often make New Year’s resolutions for ourselves. Maybe it’s to stop a bad habit or maybe it’s to start a new healthier and more positive activity. Some people will put into action something they’ve been putting off for years. The focus could be on themselves and they may want to change their appearance, lose a bit of weight, replace missing teeth, or straighten or whiten their smile.
If you do feel unhappy with any aspect of your smile, the new year is a good time to address it. We can help you to make that change and start your journey to a healthier, straighter, brighter smile today.
The team at the practice offers a vast array of dental services, which could help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Each expert in their field offers treatments carried out to the highest standards and with the utmost attention to detail and care.
if your teeth are broken or you have missing teeth, dental implants could be the answer. They are a permanent solution to missing teeth and closing tooth gaps.
Dental implants are placed in your jawbone and fuse to your bone over several months. This means they become an extremely strong base for a replacement tooth or teeth to be placed. Dental implants are the closest thing to your natural teeth. They are strong and secure, which means you can eat all your favourite foods with no pain or fear of slipping.
They can last a lifetime if they are looked after properly. Your dental implants also keep the surrounding teeth from moving. This can give support to your jawbone, lips, and cheeks, which can make the appearance of your face seem younger.
If your issue is that you have crooked teeth, bucked teeth, or teeth that overlap, then teeth straightening options could be best suited for you. At our dentist in Leeds, we offer some of the best orthodontics treatments on the market, including Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, and The Inman Aligner.
Invisalign is often called the ‘invisible brace’ and is very popular with successful results enjoyed by millions worldwide. It is particularly popular with teenagers and adults who would like their teeth straightened in an extremely discreet and comfortable manner.
Dr Ferakh Hamid, at our practice, has vast experience with Invisalign and is an accredited Platinum Invisalign Provider, which will ensure you get the very best results. The 3D technology used in this treatment allows for predictable and precise results, which means treatment times are often reduced, making it a cost-effective and reliable option for patients.
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary treatment hailing from the US. The system focuses on those teeth on show when you smile. The braces can be seen but are made with white coloured braces and clear brackets and nickel-titanium wires, which means they are very discreet. It straightens teeth quickly and effectively.
Inman Aligner is barely visible other than a single clear wire. The device is removable for special occasions if you want to be brace-free. It consists of nickel-titanium coil springs that power a pair of aligner bows. These work against each other, but in a good way, because the inner bow pushes forward while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth. This gentle squeezing movement gradually guides your teeth until they are in a perfect position.
Teeth whitening is a fast and effective way of refreshing your smile. It can provide a healthy-looking and more youthful appearance for patients. The treatment is not painful, and results are fast and often seen from the first application. We offer in-surgery whitening and home whitening kits. The in-surgery option takes around an hour, whereas home kits take a few weeks.
Before your whitening treatment, you will be supplied with a protective gel for your gums. Special whitening gel can then be applied to your teeth and a UV light is applied to lighten the teeth to the desired shade. Results are usually instant, and you will leave the surgery with your new, brighter smile.
If you decide you would rather do teeth whitening from the comfort of your own home, home whitening kits can be used. Impressions of your teeth will be taken, and a special mouth tray will be made to fit your teeth and gums perfectly. This is to stop the whitening gel from getting onto the gums and to give a nice, even coverage. You will need to wear the trays and bleach regularly for 30-60 minutes a day over a few weeks.
Changing your teeth and smile has many benefits. It can often increase a person’s confidence as they feel happy and comfortable in their appearance and can smile with confidence, sometimes for the first time. It is also easier to clean aligned teeth, which means your chances of getting tooth decay and gum disease are reduced.
A full arch of teeth makes it possible to eat in comfort and you will not have to avoid foods you might enjoy. Also, when the missing teeth are replaced, it prevents those remaining teeth from moving. Your face is likely to look healthier and even potentially more youthful when the support from the dental implants is given back to the lips and cheeks.
