Choosing a More Natural Looking Smile

Cosmetic dentistry in Oxfordshire has become increasingly popular over the past ten years or so, and you probably already know at least a few people who have had some work done. This might have been in the form of teeth whitening, dental veneers or perhaps adult orthodontics. Some results will probably have looked better than others, and the winners are likely to be those whose teeth still looked reasonably natural and who haven’t chosen straight white, bright teeth that are obviously not their own. Even though people want a perfect smile, more are choosing to opt for a natural look and are using cosmetic dentistry to improve on nature while still retaining some individuality in their smile.

cosmetic dentistry oxfordshireYou’ll find all the dentists at Amsel & Wilkins are very interested in cosmetic dentistry and put a great deal of time and effort into planning a smile transformation. The most beautiful smile isn’t necessarily the most perfect, but is designed to take into account facial features, skin tone and hair colour. If you have a wonky front tooth that you particularly hate then you’ll probably be pleased to have it straightened out through cosmetic dental treatments, but other features can be more desirable.

Some Minor Imperfections can be Highly Desirable

Having a gap (called a diastema) in between your front teeth can often be quite desirable, and is a feature you will see in many celebrity smiles. Of course if you hate it you can choose to have it closed up or perhaps narrowed slightly. But these are features that are worth bearing in mind when considering a smile makeover. You might love the ultra-white and ultra-straight toothed smile of your favourite film star, but it might look slightly out of place in the average high street.

It’s far better and far more achievable to improve on the smile you already have through making minor modifications such as adult orthodontics or cosmetic braces, or perhaps a few well-placed veneers and tooth whitening.

They all have a lot of experience in creating beautiful smiles, and can listen to your aspirations before suggesting the most suitable treatment plan. If you have a certain budget in mind then you can discuss this with them, and they will be able to tell you how much can reasonably be achieved. The great thing about opting for a more natural looking smile is that it can be a bit cheaper to get, as you are less likely to require a whole mouthful of veneers.
