Your smile: not just pure self-indulgence

In Stockport, cosmetic dentists are helping people rediscover their lovely smile.

A cosmetic dentist in Stockport differs slightly from a general dentist because their focus is more on the appearance of your smile, teeth and gums. A cosmetic dentist studies the alignment of the teeth, asking themselves questions such as:

‘Are there too many teeth in this mouth?’ – a condition known as over-crowding.

cosmetic-dentist-stockport‘Do these teeth lean too far in or too far out?’ – misalignment is the technical term for this condition.

‘Is too much gum visible when the patient smiles?’ – a feature known as a gummy smile.

These are the naturally-occurring problems that patients come into 61 Dental to ask about treatment for.

They also ask about other dental problems that have developed over the course of their daily lives. These include:

  • Increasing numbers of amalgam fillings in the mouth that can make you feel self-conscious when you laugh;
  • Teeth becoming stained and discoloured, through drinking tea, coffee and red wine, through smoking, and sometimes as part of ageing;
  • Teeth have been or knocked out, fallen out, or been extracted due to infection or too many fillings.

These are all problems that people seek help for. Your Stockport, cosmetic dentist can help with all these problems.

More than just aesthetics

You will be glad to know that visiting a cosmetic dentist is not just pure self-indulgence. The benefits of a great smile of sparkling, evenly-toned, straight, healthy-looking teeth give you a feeling of well being, which comes from several sources.

Firstly, you are no longer burdened by self-consciousness, maybe even outright depression caused by the condition of your teeth and mouth.

Secondly, the mouth and teeth are in a better state, and because straighter teeth help prevent oral diseases, your physical health is also better.

Thirdly, smiling releases natural ‘happy chemicals’, such as serotonin and beta-endorphins, leading to levels of increased happiness.

At 61 Dental, your cosmetic dentist in Stockport can help you reclaim the smile you want. Our treatments include teeth whitening, white fillings, porcelain veneers, acid erosion solutions, and braces. One or more treatments can be combined to create a treatment package known as the Smile Makeover.
