Spring forward: Getting teeth smart for Summer

Know you want your teeth in shape for Summer, but not exactly sure what you need? That’s a common problem many patients seem to have.

For those looking for cosmetic dental treatment in Southport, Formby, Ormskirk or Manchester, you’re likely to benefit from a consultation with me in the first instance. Before I undertake any cosmetic procedure, a consultation is essential to understand the results you’re hoping to achieve, as well as to assess your teeth and gums and advise on your treatment options.

Need some inspiration first? Here’s a rundown of three of the most common dental complaints I hear, and a suggestion on the dental treatments that may help...

1.     My smile isn’t symmetrical: Ever thought about composite bonding or composite veneers? Both treatments are painless and a cheaper alternative to veneers. By putting material - ‘composite’ - directly onto your teeth and shaping it, you can build up the teeth and achieve a more symmetrical smile. Check out my Instagram @drstephendodd for plenty of cases involving composite bonding and composite veneers.

2.     My teeth are crooked: Gone are the days where your only option is a metal, visible brace. I offer a number of straightening methods including Invisalign, ceramic ‘clear’ braces and ‘invisible’ lingual braces that are fitted behind the teeth.

3.     My smile is gappy: Depending on the size of the gaps and the look you want to achieve, there’s plenty of options. Dental implants are an effective way of replacing missing teeth, or for smaller gaps you may consider veneers or braces if you’re looking for a complete, long-lasting Smile Makeover. Composite treatment is also an option for quicker results.
