How can our dentist in Sutton help with dental insecurities?

Being critical of ourselves and the way we look has become normal across society. Many people choose to change the colour of their hair, try out a different fashion look or lose weight. For some patients, feeling insecure about their smile and unhappy with their teeth can be extremely traumatic and hard to live with, but it is completely normal if they're not aware of the kind of treatments available to help correct problems with the teeth, to offer them back their confidence. Our dentist in Sutton can provide you with a long list of cosmetic treatments, all recommended with the aim of providing you with confidence once again.

Who can help?


Here at Smile House Dental Practice, we understand that quality patient care goes much further than pain management. Whatever the problem with your teeth, we promise to find the best treatment options for you. There are often a variety of treatments that work for the same problem, but when initially contacting us for a consultation, our dentist in Sutton will talk to you in detail and take a thorough dental history, before recommending a treatment path.


Invisalign


Having a straight smile is something that many of our patients request upon their initial meeting with us, and in the same breath they are surprised that we can help to get them towards that dream. Unfortunately, many of us did not have the opportunity to get brace treatment when we were younger, so now as adults we may become embarrassed about the idea of wearing them during work or going out with friends. Invisalign, the clear aligner alternative, allows our dentist in Sutton to offer a treatment option for misaligned teeth that is much more discreet. The treatment works by adding pressure to your teeth, guiding them into the desired position, keeping them moving by changing the aligners after an allotted time period.


Teeth whitening


Despite being normal, teeth stains can make many of us feel insecure, especially when they are much deeper than surface level, which can usually be removed with brushing. If you enjoy smoking or eating dark foods, you might have noticed your teeth have started to stain. They can also stain due to old age or plaque building up. With teeth whitening treatments, you have the option to make your smile bright once again, helping to remove any insecurities you might have about your teeth. For those who do not have the time to visit our practice or would feel more comfortable whitening their teeth at home, we can also provide kits to get you the results you desire.


Dental implants


Missing teeth can have more impact than just making us feel insecure, but it does not mean that feeling unhappy with your teeth is any less important than the physical implications. There are a variety of reasons as to why you might have lost a tooth, ranging from decay to trauma or a physical injury. With dental implants, you’re able to get back your full set of teeth and return to life as you knew it, no longer changing your diet or lifestyle choices to adjust to a missing tooth. On top of that, the implant will look completely natural, so you can feel confident once again!
