You’re Never Too Old to Improve Your Smile

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Many people associate orthodontic work with those difficult teenage years, when braces were generally accepted as a common sight. As we reach adulthood, many people shy away from the idea of having teeth straightening as they feel that they have somehow missed the opportunity to improve their smile.

In fact, more and more adults are making the decision to revisit their orthodontist and set about creating a confident, healthy smile. And the great news is that methods have improved dramatically over the years, so there is now a whole range of options for you to choose from.

If you have concerns about the idea of having a visible brace, we have a number of solutions to help. For example, the Invisalign system uses clear aligners to apply gentle pressure over a number of weeks without the need for wires or brackets. Alternatively, our highly skilled experts can apply lingual braces, which are fitted to the inside of your teeth in order to carry out their work with complete discretion.

If speed is your priority, ask your orthodontist about the six month smile technique, which is a safe and painless way of achieving straighter teeth within a short period of time. If this process is not suitable for you, a Damon brace is the latest design of traditional brace, which is more compact and works more quickly than conventional alternatives.

Here at Nelson Road Dental Practice we believe that a new smile can help to boost your self-confidence and make a genuine difference to your life. We have helped many patients across Gillingham, Rochester, Chatham and the surrounding areas to realise the potential of their smiles. To find out how we could help you too, call us on 01634 851 317.

Is Your Smile Giving the Right Impression?

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Studies have shown that your smile can have a huge impact on the way you are received by others. Even without knowing it, human beings make snap judgements of each other based on physical appearance and this will influence the first impression that you leave behind.

In random surveys, members of the public would be more likely to doubt the intelligence and social skills of a person whose teeth are discoloured, crooked or missing than the same person shown with a neat, white smile.

The impact of these unconscious judgements could be far reaching. In situations such as client meetings, job interviews or your first encounter with a new partner’s family, the last thing you want to worry about is the idea that your teeth may be misrepresenting you.

In the same way that you would dress smartly for an important occasion, having confidence in your smile can boost your morale and help you to portray the best possible you.

Here at Nelson Road Dental Practice we understand that the effects of your smile go deeper than just a cosmetic impression and can have a real impact on your confidence and happiness in social situations. We believe that dentistry can make a genuine and lasting improvement to people’s well-being, from a simple whitening to subtle fillings or a gradual reshaping.
