Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist

Updated on April 30, 2012

Finding the Best Cosmetic Dentist

When you decide to look for a cosmetic dentist, it is important, of course, to find one that specialises in the area that you want. For some, this may be a dentist who has a great reputation for whitening teeth, whilst for others; it may be a dentist who has a reputation for being good with nervous patients. Or, you may just want one who is very good overall and you feel that you can talk to openly.

Whilst the most popular treatment to have done at a cosmetic dental practice is tooth whitening, by far the most important one that people tend to have done is the dental implant. There are many excellent cosmetic dentists who can do this procedure including this cosmetic dentist in Burton in Derbyshire.

The dental implant is usually used when a single tooth has been lost, whether by accident or decay, or perhaps when it is a couple of teeth. It is an excellent alternative to having a partial denture fitted and offers not only a better appearance but also a strong replacement for a lost tooth, one which means that you don't have to worry about what you choose to eat.

The dental implant is actually the name given to the titanium screw which is placed into the jawbone and a crown then placed on top. Generally speaking though, many refer to dental implants as both of these pieces combined.

Many are also out off by the idea of having a screw placed into the jaw. However, the reality is that our jawbone has very few nerves at all and indeed, the procedure is not at all painful, even though to some, it may sound like it.

Of course, this procedure as with most invasive ones is done using a local anaesthetic so you wouldn’t feel it anyway. Once the implant has been placed into the jaw, it is usually left for a while to enable the bone to fuse with the titanium implant so that a strong root is formed, enabling the crown to be attached at a later date. This will ensure that the patient has an excellent strong replacement tooth.

Dental implants are simple to clean too and can be looked after exactly as if they were a natural tooth. So, by brushing and flossing regularly, you should have no problems with a replacement tooth that is likely to last you for at least twenty years.
