Cosmetic dentistry is designed for patients who are thinking about improving their smile or want a new smile entirely. This might be to look more professional, or to simply enjoy their appearance more. The best thing for you to do if you are thinking about cosmetic dentistry, but are unsure whether to go ahead, is to book yourself in for a cosmetic consultation and we will be able to advise you on the best course of action. If you are looking for teeth whitening in Bedford, then this is also something that we provide. Infinity Aesthetics is all about providing patients with the results that they have in mind and bringing the best out of any smile.
How does teeth whitening work?
While the enamel is extremely dense, and provides protection for the entire tooth, it is actually porous. This means that a bleaching agent can be used in order to target discoloured areas of the tooth, and soak into the enamel. Teeth whitening in Bedford is available at our practice, so make sure to come in for a consultation. The treatment is extremely safe too, so will not involve many risks or pitfalls. We use a tray method for our teeth whitening, where we first take a mould of your teeth, which is then put on to the teeth containing the dental bleach, to ensure that the bleaching agent has good contact with the enamel. This has proven to be an extremely efficient method.
Does it have to be done at a dental practice?
Due to the low risk of teeth whitening, the treatment can be administered at home, or in a dental practice. If you are looking for a dentist who can administer teeth whitening in Bedford, then this is something that Infinity Aesthetics can do for you. Both have their own advantages and administering treatment at home will mean that you can take care of your appearance in your own time, and in the comfort of your own home. However, at a dental practice, a dentist will know exactly how to apply the treatment and will be able to advise you on the best techniques for it. A dentist may also be able to apply teeth whitening treatment to just a single tooth.
In some more extreme cases, people may want a look for their teeth that is more radical. While teeth whitening treatment can make people look younger, some patients may want a complete change in the look of their teeth, as they may be damaged or decayed. In this case, veneers are a fantastic option.
Veneers are made from porcelain, which is an extremely durable substance that is also extremely adaptable, so you will be able to have a brand-new smile that will also be protective of your real teeth. Veneers work by bonding the porcelain to your enamel, which is first drilled away to create space, and a rougher surface. Once your veneers have been fitted they will last for an extremely long time, while providing you with a youthful and attractive smile.
