One of the first things that people notice about you is your smile. An attractive, healthy smile can make you appear more confident, upbeat and even make you look years younger!
In the digital world we live in, we are constantly spending more time looking at ourselves than ever before, whether in a Zoom meeting for work, or smiling for an Instagram selfie. For most people, having straight teeth is considered just as important as having healthy teeth and gums.
We should be confident that our smile will make a great first impression. Having unsightly gaps between teeth or visible silver fillings can sometimes make this difficult. If your teeth were whiter or straighter, would you be less embarrassed of your smile?
Stained or discoloured teeth can often be made at least one shade whiter by simply having a thorough professional cleaning and polishing. Of course, this treatment is not purely aesthetic, as it also improves the health of your gums and supporting tissues so you can keep your teeth for life. If you want a more dramatic change in colour, then whitening treatments are available. Take home kits are designed for use in the comfort of your own home. In Pembroke Dental, custom dental trays are made by our technician in Pembroke Lab which can be used at home to control how white you want to go.
If you wish to change the shape or form of teeth, then it may be possible to do veneers to correct any unevenness in your smile. Our new Specialist Prosthodontist, Dr. Nina King is happy to accept patients in Carlow and Newbridge for advanced restorative and cosmetic work, crown and bridge work, veneers, dentures, and any aesthetic dentistry concerns. Veneers is a very predictable treatment option that allows us to use thin fingernails of porcelain to overlay the teeth and create symmetry and harmony in the smile zone. The current ceramic materials have improved tremendously allowing light to pass through easily to mimic natural tooth shading and characteristics.
Advances in dental technology, materials and techniques now mean that you have a large choice of options available to you in order to achieve your dream smile. Call or message us today to book an appointment with Dr. Nina King and tell us what you want your smile to look like, and we will advise you on the best options for you.
