Treat Yourself to a Smile Makeover in the New Year

Teeth with whitening tray
25 December 2022

Are you happy with your smile?

According to the Independent and several other studies, half of Brits are unhappy with their smiles. The most disliked aspects are discolouration of teeth and crooked teeth. Do you dream of having straighter, whiter teeth? Or would you like to close gaps in your smile? Maybe you’d like to replace one or more teeth? Here at Aesthetique Dental Care, we want to help you to get a smile you’re proud of.

Having good teeth can not only be beneficial in boosting your confidence but it can also help improve the functionality of your teeth, improving bite and making it easier to clean those hard-to-reach areas.

At Aesthetique in Leeds, it doesn’t matter if you have big ideas for your smile for the new year or small tweaks, we can do everything all under one roof. We use cutting-edge technology to ensure patients get a natural-looking smile makeover. Our expert team will ensure that any treatment we perform is to the highest standards and that the utmost care and attention is given. We can provide superior strength crowns and veneers in just one day, which means you can walk out of our private dentist in Leeds with a new smile in a single day!

Composite bonding offers a smart, safe solution to chipped, gappy, or discoloured teeth. This tooth-enhancing treatment uses a tooth-coloured resin that is applied and shaped to transform the shape of the teeth. It’s a simple concept but its application does take some considerable skill on our part.  It tends to work best for teeth that are basically healthy but might need a little cosmetic tweak to get them in shape and is normally best used in areas of low bite pressure.

What can composite bonding do?

  • Repair chipped/cracked teeth
  • Close gaps
  • Restore the shape or size of a tooth
  • Disguise discolouration
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Offer an alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect an exposed root

The whole process is relatively fast, and you will usually be seen in just one visit. There is often no need to remove any healthy tooth and there’s no need for anaesthesia as it’s not a painful procedure.

To keep your ceramic bonding in beautiful condition, try to avoid those tasty tipples that may prove to be little stain devils such as tea, coffee, and red wine – particularly when you’ve just had treatment. Also, as always, try and be an oral hygiene fanatic and keep those teeth well and truly brushed and flossed.

It can potentially last for several years but could break off if not treated with a little bit of TLC.

Enlighten Whitening

If you want a total tooth transformation, we recommend getting your teeth whitened first and then getting composite bonding colour-matched to your new brighter, whiter teeth.

We offer a comprehensive tooth whitening package called Enlighten Whitening. You will have a digital scan taken and then your teeth whitening trays will be custom built for the perfect fit. You are provided with a special toothpaste and home whitening kit to use for 2 weeks before your in-chair treatment. This helps limit any tooth sensitivity and starts your tooth whitening journey. Following this, you will come to the practice for an in-surgery booster appointment which will complete your treatment. Enlighten whitening guarantees patients a B1 shade and this is the brightest, whitest shade available.

Orthodontic Treatment

If getting your teeth straightened is more of your goal, we offer four highly effective orthodontic treatments in-house:

  • Gaps in your teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Incorrect bite

Virtually invisible clear aligners such as Invisalign are a great aesthetic choice, whereas if you want teeth straightened in a shorter time, then Six Month smiles may be the best solution for you. Lingual braces are cleverly hidden from view on the back surface of the teeth and the Inman Aligner can correct teeth crowding with just a single appliance.

Whatever you would like to discuss about your teeth and smile, we would be happy to advise you and help you make the best decision for your dental issue and to fit your lifestyle. We offer FREE COSMETIC CONSULTATIONS and look forward to hearing from you.
