Do you want to improve your smile? Modern dentistry can work wonders. For example, now you can close spaces between teeth and fix crooked or chipped teeth to provide a nicer, less self-conscious smile. You can whiten teeth for a more youthful and healthy look. Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t only make you look better, it makes you feel better.
We offer a full range of aesthetic dental treatment, building confidence ‘one smile at a time’
Smile Design is one of the many services at the Harrow Dental Centre. Smile Design is a highly technical process requiring great skill and experience to achieve a natural result.Orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth may be all that is required. It may be necessary to refer you to a specialist orthodontist to straighten your teeth in combination with tooth whitening ,dental bonding ,crowns or veneers .
It takes artistic ability and extensive knowledge to perform an impeccable smile design. Techniques require precise measurements based upon mouth shape, gum lines, lips, and natural shape of the teeth. That’s why we devote time to precisely planning a Smile Design before we begin the actual procedure. It is vital that we will help you to attain excellent oral hygiene and dental health before any cosmetic or aesthetic dental care is commenced.
Oral hygiene is the foundation of all good dental care. Any treatment to restore your teeth or to rejuvenate your smile will fail if the treatment is not supported by excellent oral hygiene
During a patient’s initial cosmetic consultation, we take several photographs and create models of teeth to help us plan the treatment with you, to suit your unique style and character.
Another indication of age is the dark, negative space seen in the back corners of the mouth when a person smiles. To correct this, we may widen the width of the back teeth with veneers or crowns. This broadens the smile eliminating the dark corners.
Finally, teeth stain with age, nature plays a trick on us (some of us!) as we get older our teeth get darker and our hair gets lighter or whiter.An ‘aged’ smile can add years to ones face. Tooth whitening (bleaching ) may be a carefully considered part of the treatment plan.
The colour of our often teeth corresponds with the age of the patient – the younger the whiter. Skin tones can also influence the shade selection of the veneers. Thus, by placing a natural looking veneer over discoloured teeth the face is brightened creating a more youthful appearance. Tooth whitening is usually a recommended part of a smile makeover

With the constant evolution of technology, more and more people are thinking about their image. The several leading causes of this growing phenomenon include social media, TV, magazines, and the overarching desire to look younger.
When a picture is posted on Facebook or Instagram, for example, no one wants to feel bad about themselves. If someone scrolls through their pictures on Facebook and feels that they have some weight to lose; the individual will feel more pressured and motivated to lose the weight to show the world that they look better than before.
This is happening all around us and is being reinforced by the cultural and societal norms of the twenty-first century. Celebrities in magazines and on TV have the desired look of tall and slim, with beautiful features, including their teeth.
When a photographer takes a photo and asks the subject to smile, people don’t want to be embarrassed or ashamed of their teeth. Nowadays, the average person is more likely to invest in teeth whitening as well as aesthetic dentistry for the constant search of perfection. When someone trips and cracks a tooth, their first instinct is to go running to the dentist in order to fix the broken tooth. In addition, coffee addicts are buying teeth whiteners to remove the unwanted stains on their teeth. Everyone wants to feel and look beautiful within the definition set by the world around them. Brushing and flossing is not satisfying anymore because individuals do not believe that it does a sufficient job cleaning their teeth. People want bright, clean and flawless teeth.
There is some confusion about the terms cosmetic or aesthetic dental care;
Aesthetic dentistry is essentially where science and artistic principles are combined to provide great dentistry for you.Therefore, while it is about improving the way all your teeth look, it’s also about improving your oral health. It actually embraces all kinds of dental treatments and has one aim…to ensure you get the very best outcome in terms of function, appearance and of course oral health. Cosmetic dentistry is as the name suggests is more about sorting out the visual aspects of your teeth such as tooth whitening or orthodontic treatment. Such treatments are by definition non-invasive and not intended to change the structure of your teeth. Essentially the terms have the same aim – to offer you the smile you deserve
The training that is necessary to become an ‘aesthetic dentist’ is long and difficult, but the reward is in seeing people visibly regain the confidence of a smile.The team at the Harrow Dental Centre believes that good dental hygiene is the foundation of all the cosmetic and aesthetic dental care we provide.We can be contacted via our web site or on 020 84272543
