Brits ‘having cosmetic dentistry treatments’
Britons are undergoing cosmetic dentistry treatments throughout their lives to keep their smiles in the best possible shape, it has been claimed.
Dr Anoop Maini of Aqua Dental Spa said people can undergo many cosmetic dentistry treatments nowadays to keep their teeth looking young and healthy.
He noted that staining in particular can be easily treated with an air spray.
Dr Maini commented: "You can also get porcelain veneers which are used in situations where the teeth themselves are worn out structurally, to give the teeth a more youthful shape."
According to the British Orthodontic Society, with longer life expectancies than previous generations – and a greater awareness that teeth can last a lifetime – today’s adults are taking better care of their teeth and are prepared to invest in the long-term appearance of their mouths.
The organisation concluded that orthodontic treatment is no long the preserve of the young, with people being treated well into their 60s.
