How do you feel about your smile? Is it something you are happy with? I personally look at mine and think urgh. Through my teens, I went through years of having to wear braces, which helped both realign my jaws and straighten my teeth. Though was more catered to making sure my teeth were healthy and usable than how they looked. However, they seem to have moved back in places, but they do their job at least.
Of course these days it is easier than ever to have your smile worked on, places like Saving Faces are helping people daily to get the smile they desire. What's more, these days, braces aren't so in your face. Gone are the days of coloured elastics to try and make your train tracks look “cool” and more are the days of them being discrete and blending in.
While braces are perhaps the most commonly thought of cosmetic dentistry it isn't the only option. From tooth whitening to implants there are so many choices that may suit your wants, needs and budget.
One technique which is perhaps becoming more common again, of late, is veneers. But what exactly are they? Made from porcelain, veneers can help improve both the strength and look of your teeth. A small layer of porcelain is attached to your teeth, which helps hide any damage or marks. What's more places like veneers Liverpool, make sure they look exactly the same shape and size your original teeth meaning no one will know the difference, great hey!
I think the most important thing though when it comes to your smile, is to try and feel comfortable with the teeth you have (others probably don't notice the issues you do) and make sure you research before planning to make any changes. Check for the qualifications and licenses (if necessary) of the professionals you are speaking to and if possible talk to people who have used their service before.
