Get your smile makeover

Did you know that according to National Smile Month statistics, on average each adult has seven fillings and 31% of adults have tooth decay? Nearly half of the population are unhappy with their teeth, but we do not need to suffer in silence. There are so many options to choose on the market nowadays.

At Inspired Dentistry, we offer cosmetic treatments such as safe and effective tooth whitening and the incredibly discreet Invisalign aligners. For a more instant transformation, you could try porcelain veneers.

Tooth Whitening

Discoloured teeth can really affect our confidence when we are smiling or speaking. If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth, maybe you could consider having them whitened. Treatment is safe, convenient and comfortable and best of all, it provides you with that beautiful sparkle and confidence to smile with pride.

Many factors affect our teeth, such as bad habits like smoking, diet, with regular consumption of red wine or tea and coffee, long term medication or sometimes it is just from genetics. Tooth whitening is an excellent way to quickly refresh your smile with a noticeable and aesthetically pleasing effect.

Invisalign

If it’s crooked or gappy teeth that you are bothered by, then you could consider Invisalign. The treatment is a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, which are custom-made to suit your teeth. The aligners are made from medical grade plastic, which is very light and thin, so it is comfortable, but it is also strong to move the teeth into the desired position gently.

Every two weeks you will change your aligners, continuing through the series of aligners until the end of treatment. Treatment time can vary from person to person but can sometimes be completed within six months.

Another advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed when you’re eating and for brushing and flossing, which means you can maintain your dental hygiene routine with ease.

Porcelain Veneers

If you would like to change the appearance of a stained, twisted or damaged teeth, then veneers might be the option for you. It is a simple yet highly effective procedure whereby a very thin layer or ceramic, porcelain or composite material is attached to the front surface of a tooth, helping it to look smooth and straight.

It usually takes around two appointments to fit one veneer, slightly longer if multiple veneers are required. Your new veneer will be colour matched to your natural teeth, providing natural-looking, beautiful results.

Dental Implants in Southampton

Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? If you answered yes, then dental implants could be the solution for you.

Rather than dentures, which can slip, feel uncomfortable and have to be removed to be cleaned, dental implants are much more like natural teeth. They allow you to both smile freely and with confidence and to eat various foods with confidence once more.

Dental implants are a long-established and safe dental treatment. As they act like natural teeth, they will last for as long as you care for them.

What is a dental implant?

Basically speaking, the dental implant acts as the structure of the natural tooth. Strong screws made from titanium are fixed into the jawbone, acting as the tooth root, and this holds the crown in place. Implants are a clever solution, as they can be used to replace just one tooth or a whole mouth of teeth. Over time the titanium screw fuses together with your natural bone, which helps it be held in place very securely. This means the patient gets a comfortable, strong and securely fitted crown, bridge or denture, which can be relied on.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

• They don’t move around so feel secure
• They can be placed next to existing healthy teeth without causing any side effects
• They stop food and bacteria from getting trapped in the gaps that were previously there, which reduces decay, gum disease and bad breath
• They can improve your speech
• They can stop your face appearing saggy, particularly if there are several missing teeth
• They are well-established, safe and effective
• They can significantly improve your confidence, particularly when replacing a very visible missing tooth
• They can stop the teeth adjacent to any gaps from moving or rotating as there is no-where for the teeth to move to

Are dental implants suitable for me?

We would look at every patient as a unique case, however on the whole dental implants are suitable for the majority of patients, providing you are in good health generally. If you have diabetes or are a heavy smoker, an alternative treatment may be suggested.
