Hollywood comes to Hammersmith

What do you see whenever you look at a picture of a movie star? Unless, it’s Shrek or Jaws, you see a human being with a wonderful set of teeth that line up harmoniously to create a smile that the rest of humanity can only dream of. Or at least, that’s how it used to be.

But cosmetic dentistry in Hammersmith with us at Kings Dental Clinic is every bit as good as anything you will find in the movies. You can be your own movie star as far as your smile is concerned.

Cosmetic Dentistry in HammersmithAt Kings Dental Clinic, we have a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments. You can have treatments as and when you feel the need, or you can go for a full smile makeover, which involves an in-depth consultation and assessment of your teeth, gums, lips and face so that we can create a smile that brings out all your natural fabulousness.

We can even get you ready for really important occasions when you will be making memories to last a lifetime and preserving them in photos and videos.

Take a look at our smile packages on the cosmetic dentistry pages. The prices are there too and you will find that there are discounts when bride and groom both have treatments, and even bigger discounts when more members of the wedding party come along too.

Cosmetic dentistry is for everyone

If you watch a lot of reality shows on TV, you could be forgiven for thinking that cosmetic dentistry is only for young people with buff bodies and a few wonky teeth. No, not at all. Cosmetic dentistry is the saviour of people who have lost teeth, or whose teeth have been reduced to ugly little stumps in their mouths, through decay, gum disease, and sheer old age. Everybody should be able to enjoy a lovely smile, not just the young and beautiful.

At Kings Dental Clinic in Hammersmith, cosmetic dentistry is giving people their dignity and self-respect back. If you take a look at our before and after pictures, you will see what we are talking about.

Cosmetic Dentistry in HammersmithNot just aesthetics

You don’t need to wait until your teeth are truly worse for wear before getting them fixed. If you need to justify it to yourself, you will be pleased to know that, in general, cosmetic dentistry gives you better oral health. If you get your teeth straightened with what are considered to be cosmetic braces (or aligners), your teeth will have fewer nooks and crannies in which plaque can hide and turn into tartar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

Having teeth that you can chew properly on means that you can eat really good nutritious food, like fruit and raw vegetables. When you don’t have this capability, you can end up on a soft food diet, and this can lead to malnutrition.

Dental implants seem to fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry, but they are the only tooth restoration method that gives artificial teeth a solid anchor, which you can chew on.

Of course, there are some cosmetic dentistry treatments that are purely cosmetic, like teeth whitening. This does nothing for your ability to chew, or to keep your mouth healthy, but it can do a lot for your state of mind. If we can’t smile, we can’t release the natural chemicals that make us feel happy, and we can’t connect with other people. So, as you can see, cosmetic dentistry is about so much more than how you look.

Using cosmetic dentistry for the perfect smile

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of the profession that deals with the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Many people are unhappy with some aspect of how their smile looks. At King’s Dental Clinic we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental options to suit all needs and budgets.

cosmetic dentistrySome people know exactly what they would like to change about their smile, and what treatment they need to do it. Others just know they are unhappy with their smile but are unsure which treatment or combination of treatments is the best way to improve it.

We invite anyone interested in cosmetic dentistry to come in for a consultation at our Hammersmith or Southwark dental practices. Our skilled clinicians will carefully examine your teeth and gums and will also take your whole facial structure into consideration before recommending the best treatments to help you get the perfect smile.

You may benefit from one treatment or a combination of two or more from our comprehensive cosmetic dentistry menu.

Treatment options include:

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain placed over the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. A single veneer can cover a permanently stained or discoloured tooth, while a full set can create a smile makeover, covering gaps and mild alignment problems and giving teeth a more uniform appearance.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening uses special bleaching products to gently remove everyday stains from your teeth. It is safe when carried out by a dentist and can be done here at the practice or at home.

Gummy smile correction

Removing excess gum tissue to give your teeth a more uniform appearance, leaving you with more tooth than gum on show when you smile.

Discreet orthodontics

Correct the alignment of your teeth discreetly and quickly with a range of cosmetic orthodontic options.
