Why do I keep hearing about veneers?

It’s probably because veneers have become increasingly popular over the years; according blog newveneers.wordpress.com, many celebrities such as: Megan fox, Victoria Beckham, and Cheryl Cole, owe their perfect smiles to veneers. Veneers may be popular with celebrities but they don’t carry that celebrity price tag.Due to their affordability, they’re becoming increasingly popular with average Joe too! Healthrow.net says that porcelain veneers will not stain, this means you can go on enjoying your cups of coffee (or glasses of wine) without the worry of ruining your brand new smile. Veneers are made bespoke to the individual, so you can actually choose a colour to suit you and the look you’re going for.  Veneers look extremely natural and will make you want to show off those pearly whites as often as you can! nobody will know you’ve had cosmetic work done do your teeth, unless you tell them!

veneer-in-kentWhat exactly are veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that fits over the surface of a tooth, says the Oral Health Foundation. Veneers can be used on one singe tooth, or many front teeth to improve the look of your smile. Staplehurst Dental Practice offer veneers in Kent, they say veneers can fix teeth issues such as: chipped or broken teeth, discoloured teeth and small gaps. Patients who opt for veneers in Kent do not require any major dental surgery. The teeth due for treatment have a small amount of enamel removed (the same thickness as the very thin veneer) and the veneer is then fixed firmly on to the teeth, using a strong bonding. This method provides immediate results. Staplehurst Dental Practice also offers a Smile Makeover treatment which involves taking a picture of the patient’s teeth and allowing them to electronically modify the picture to produce a smile which is suitable to them. the patients can then design a 3D version of their chosen smile to see how it looks in their mouth before any modifications are made to their actual teeth with veneers. Kent clinic, Staplehurst Dental Practice, offers veneer aftercare to their patients to ensure that their oral needs are met, and their teeth remain healthy. For veneers in Kent, contact the practice for a free consultation.

Get the smile you really want

It is important to feel good about your smile and it is possible with a visit to Staplehurst Dental, our practice in Kent. Teeth straightening processes have come on a lot and we have a lot to offer.

teeth-straightening-in-kentCome and be surprised by the possibilities

We think you’ll be surprised by our range of services for teeth straightening in Kent. In addition to more traditional braces, there is now a range of excellent dental solutions for misaligned teeth and many of them are hard to see so you can feel free to flash your smile during treatment as well as after without having any concerns about the way you appear.

Your dentist will be able to talk to you about what you want and the factors to consider. These might include the extent of the work you want to have done, whether you need to have any teeth removed to make room for realignment, the time frame you have in mind and your budget. There is flexibility in all of these areas and you might be amazed at what can be achieved.

We offer Six Month Smiles which are an aesthetically pleasing option – the brackets are clear and the wires are tooth coloured which render them discreet and hard to see. They are also typically less expensive than many other options.

The other major brand that we carry is Invisalign. These are a clear aligner that is shaped to suit your teeth and to subtly move them into the desired position over time. You change them every two weeks at home to ensure the progression of your treatment.

Aligning your teeth means that they will be easier to clean and take care of in the future so there is a broader impact on your oral hygiene, freshness and self-assurance.

We take you through the whole process

At Staplehurst Dental, you can rely on us to be straight with you about your teeth alignment journey. We’ll give you all the details you want and do our best to meet and exceed your expectations. Investigate your options with us for teeth straightening in Kent today.

Straighten your teeth for good

Let’s work together to explore which option is right for you and set you on the path to a restored smile as soon as possible.

teeth-straighteningAre braces right for you?

We offer a range of options such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. Your dentist will discuss your options with you during a detailed initial consultation. We will guide you through treatment and give you excellent aftercare to ensure you are happy long term.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign are clear aligners that fit over the top of your teeth and gently move them back into place. You are in control and change the aligners yourself at home every two weeks so they adapt and continue to be effective as the position of your teeth changes.

What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles are fixed to the teeth. They are a bit more like traditional braces but generally much faster and they are tooth coloured so they blend in much more with your natural look. Results can be achieved in as little as, you guessed it, six months!

Do you want to fill the gaps in your smile?

Do you or someone you love have missing teeth? Is it something that you would like to see fixed? Have you looked at the options but not yet found the right one to fit your needs? Then pay a visit to our clinic in Kent, dental implants may be the solution for you.

fill-gapsDental implants – an innovative solution

The number of options for replacement of missing teeth has expanded over the years and improved considerably. You may not have heard of dental implants but they are one of the latest solutions for replacing either a single tooth or many teeth. They only need to replace the teeth that are missing. Unlike some other solutions, dental implants work alongside your remaining teeth which do not need to be removed to have dental implants fitted. At Staplehurst Dental, we think this is excellent news because it means that you will retain as much natural look and function for your teeth as possible. Come and talk to us about dental implants in Kent and we’re sure you will get the advice you need to decide what is best for you.

The basics of dental implants

Dental implants go into your jaw bone just like the roots of your teeth. The dentist will drill small holes into your jaw bone – don’t worry, you will either have a local anaesthetic whilst this is done or, if you’re particularly worried, you can talk to us about other sedation options. The implants go into these holes and are then secure. Over time, the jaw bone will knit around the implants making them even more settled. If properly cared for, your implants have the potential to last a lifetime. Bridges, crowns or dentures are then affixed to the implants to give you the prosthetic teeth you need to restore normal function.

At Staplehurst Dental, Kent, dental implants are one of the ways we hope to give you back the ability to choose your foods freely, smile with confidence and talk as normal. We know how important dental health is to life and the effect it can have on the way you feel about yourself. We want to offer you the chance to be the brightest you can be and experience the joy of a restored set of teeth.

Where can I be sure of getting great braces in Kent?

At Staplehurst dental in Kent, braces are a treatment we love to carry out for patients. Apart from the satisfaction of having straighter teeth after as little as a few months in some cases, braces are non-invasive, so nothing too scary can happen for patients either, which dentists also enjoy!

The biggest benefit for patients who choose braces in kent, is the increase in confidence that they will feel having straighter teeth which can also have an improved bite due to the braces having realigned the teeth.

cosmetic-braces-kentcan anyone have braces?

Almost anyone can have braces if they have wonky teeth or a misaligned bite. Different braces have different requirements. For example, lingual braces are usually only used on front teeth and so may be no good to a patient wanting to straighten out teeth towards the back of the mouth.

Our braces in Kent come in different forms.

Invisalign

Invisalign are the most widely recognised clear braces solution, with millions of cases resolved worldwide. But what are they? Invisalign braces are clear aligners that look a bit like gum shields – but fit a lot more comfortably within the mouth due to being custom made for your unique dental case.

Invisalign aligners are made from a comfortable clear plastic and uses force to gently push the teeth into a straighter position within the mouth.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are braces in Kent that can potentially achieve much faster results than traditional braces. The trick is that they are as strong as traditional braces, use an advanced system and also they use tooth coloured brackets and a tooth-coloured wire, giving you the power of metal braces, but the benefit of more discreet braces.

Veneers

Typically veneers are not classed as braces, however in some minor cases where there is only a slight misalignment – or misalignment on one tooth only, veneers can provide a clever solution to create straight teeth by adding a porcelain veneer to the front of the offending tooth.

To find out more about how you too can get braces in Kent, call our practice today and book in to see us.

What are dental veneers? Kent-based patients want to know

Dental veneers were first used in Hollywood film sets in the 30s-60s and were more like false nails that would attach over the teeth and might only last until the end of the film shoot as they were held on only by a weak glue.

At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent, veneers are made of much tougher stuff! Today’s veneers are made from porcelain, which is light and thin but also strong and durable. They can be made to match the exact colour and shade of your other teeth and so can be used to cover up a range of dental imperfections and discolourations.

dental-veneers-kentWhere dental veneers really come into their own is providing an effective solution to chipped or damaged teeth which are not compromised enough to warrant a dental implant, but however have a negative effect on the cosmetic appearance of the mouth.

Modern dental veneers can be attached directly to the front of the tooth, but only after a small layer of the original tooth has been taken away. This serves the purpose of creating an abrasive surface to which your dentist will bind your new tailor-made veneer with a strong bonding agent to make sure that it stays n place.

Dental veneers can also be used in some cases to correct misaligned teeth, if the alignment is only slightly out, the veneer can be built up onto the tooth on an angle to match the angle of the tooth, with the front of the veneer on display at the correct angle and the tooth in its original misaligned place behind it.

In Kent, veneers are placed by our highly skilled cosmetic dentistry team. Alongside veneers patients can also opt for a range of other cosmetic treatments such as whitening, white fillings, and braces such as the ever popular Invisalign clear aligner system. In some cases many treatments can be added together to offer patients a smile makeover to transform their smile.

A simple solution to restore your smile

At our clinic in Kent, veneers are a simple solution we offer to restore the look of your teeth. They are versatile and can be used to fix chips or cracks, small gaps in your teeth or to correct a minor misalignment.

porcelain-veneers-in-kentWe can offer hassle free, long term solutions to these problems and, in do so, give you back the smile you deserve without any extensive or long term treatment. It is swift, easy and comfortable so please check with us if this is the right solution for you.

Here’s how it works

Veneers are small pieces of custom shaped porcelain designed to correct minor tooth issues. They are fixed to your teeth for a permanent solution.

The first step is to have a consultation at our practice in Kent. Veneers are specially made for your teeth so your dentist will take impressions of your teeth – this is a quick and simple process. These are sent off to a laboratory where the porcelain is shaped and, when complete, they are returned to us here in Kent. Veneers are easy to fit using a special bonding material.

It is possible to have either just one or more teeth fixed in this way or you can have a whole set of veneers made to fit all your teeth giving you uniformity and perfection in your smile whilst retaining a natural look. Veneers actually improve the strength of your teeth and therefore enhance overall oral quality.

A new lease of life for your mouth

Welcome to a dental procedure that is safe, durable and comfortable and can give you back tooth function that you may have thought lost.

dental-implants-kentWe are pleased to offer this excellent solution through our clinic in Kent. Dental implants can have a huge impact on the way you feel about your teeth, increase your quality of life, freedom of choice and release time otherwise spent caring for devices such as removable dentures or bridges.

Who we are…

At Staplehurst Dental in Kent, dental implants are just one of a range of services we offer. Our diversity of experience means that we can make recommendations that are right for the individual patient. We care about your experience before, during and after treatment and want to ensure that you have healthy, functional teeth and gums for a long time.

You will be given a consultation to assess your individual requirements and suitability for implants – there are certain criteria that need to be met and we want to ensure that you are having the appropriate treatment for your teeth. After this, we will give you all the information you need to book any further appointments with us.

Caring for your implants after treatment is important and therefore we give you plenty of guidance on how to look after them and make appointments to monitor them. We want you to feel supported in your choices and will be with you every step of the way.

Dental implants – the basics

To fully explain what we have to offer at our practice in Kent – dental implants are a form of tooth replacement and can be applied to single or multiple sites to restore one or more teeth. Tiny screws are attached to the jaw bone and then fitted with some form of prosthetic tooth to replace the missing one.

Once fitted, these implants are designed to last and give you the functionality of natural teeth. They support long term oral health and prevent deterioration of the outward appearance of the jaw bone by stimulating it to grow and mesh around the screws and by opening up tiny blood vessels which prevent bone loss.
