There are many different types of treatment that are offered by dentists nowadays and these cover a whole range of areas. Often people will have at least a basic idea of what ‘dentistry’ means. For example, when thinking of ‘dentistry’, we will often picture a dentist removing or restoring a tooth that has somehow been damaged. Whilst this is indeed a common part of dental treatments, it is not the only thing that dentists do. In fact, that assessment of dentistry neglects an entire field of dental work known as cosmetic dentistry. As the name implies, cosmetic dentistry focuses more on the aesthetic side of dentistry, and making sure that dental patients have their teeth looking the way they want them to. This is a fairly general definition of cosmetic dentistry though. To learn more about cosmetic dentistry, it is worth having a chat with our dentist in Soho. By talking with a qualified dentist in Soho, you will be able to find out what sorts of cosmetic treatment can best benefit you and the overall ‘look’ of your teeth.

Cosmetic dental treatments
One of the most common and talked about examples of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. Over time teeth can often become stained and take on darker shades because of food, drink and some medicines we consume. Teeth whitening helps to get rid of those stains that are resistant to regular brushing, and also brightens up teeth by several shades. There are a few different ways that teeth whitening can be performed, including treatments that whiten the patient’s teeth while they sleep and treatments that can be done in several short sessions in a dental clinic.
An arguably lesser talked about treatment is cosmetic bonding. This is a procedure that uses tooth-coloured resin material which is ‘bonded’ to a patient’s teeth. Cosmetic bonding can be used for a number of reasons, including masking tooth stains, and closing gaps between teeth. This treatment is most frequently performed on a patient’s front teeth, to produce the most visible results for their smile.
