Questions to ask yourself if considering facial aesthetics

Why do you want a procedure done, is it to please your self or some one else? Make sure your decision is for you, not because you feel you have to keep up with friends or impress work colleagues or look good for a partner. If you are not 100% sure you want to have it done you might regret it after.

What are you hoping to achieve from the procedure? More confidence, to look good for a event?

Do you want something subtle or a more dramatic change?

Ask around, research online then speak to a professional.

What happens when you finish your orthodontic treatment?

We have a large number of patients that had braces when they were younger and were happy with the final result. Then it all went downhill. Either they were not offered a retainer or they decided not to wear it. Now they have crooked teeth and will have to pay and go through the whole experience again.

This is why after every orthodontic case, whether it be invisalign stevenage, inman aligner stevenage or 6month smiles stevenage we insist on a retainer at the conclusion of the treatment.

There are normally 2 choices.

A fixed wire behind your front teeth. This has the advantage that it is there all the time. However some people might not like the thought of something permanent in their mouths.

The second choice is a clear removable retainer. This is normally worn full time for the first 3 months and nightly after this.

So if you don’t want to go back to crooked teeth, make sure you wear your retainers.

When can veneers help you?

At aesthetics in Stevenage, Hertfordshire we have patients requesting veneers for a number of reasons. Veneers are hand crafted porcelain coverings that normally go over the front surface of the tooth. They usually require minimal preparation of your tooth and are permanently bonded onto the tooth.

Here are a few reasons why veneers may be the best option for you:

Chipped teeth

As veneers cover the whole front surface of the tooth, we can straighten and even out your smile. Another option would be bonding.

Crooked teeth

Veneers are most commonly used to change the shape of your teeth and straighten your smile. Another option would be invisalign hertfordshire

Spacing between teeth

We can close spaces with veneers. You would normally require a few veneers but this would be possible. An alternative would be orthodontics hertfordshire

Unhappy with position of your teeth

Veneers can change the shape and position of your teeth at the same time. An alternative maybe invisalign hertfordshire

Colour of your teeth

You can choose the colour of your veneers and therefore brighten up your smile. An alternative maybe teeth whitening hertfordshire

With the above scenarios there are different options available. We would discuss all options and leave the choice up to you.

For more information visit veneers Hertfordshire or call us on 01707 261367.
