Keep up to date with the latest news and offers from Hello Dental.
At Hello Dental, we are Colchester dentists who do things differently when it comes to cosmetic dentistry,
We are not cosmetic dentists! We are dentists who create great smiles with a focus on health, and the ability to eat and talk comfortably which ultimately leads to them lasting longer than short-term quick fix techniques.
We call this biologically friendly cosmetic dentistry.
At Hello Dental Colchester, we have invested in the technology, materials and education to deliver amazing cosmetic results for our patients.
Unfortunately, many of these aggressive techniques are still widely performed by “cosmetic dentists” purely because they are easier to perform, give a quick fix, and often deliver amazing aesthetic results and very happy patients…at least in the short to medium term.
The downsides of this approach to cosmetic dentistry are often seen online in forums and social media sites. There are many stories of failing cosmetic work, requiring root canals, and implants to try and regain some of the ability to eat and talk, let alone smile confidently. We do not believe health has to be compromised to gain a great smile, it’s our way of practising cosmetic dentistry in Colchester.
We believe in biologically friendly cosmetic dentistry, with a focus on function and health first, which simply means for a patient, their beautiful new smile will last longer.
This minimally invasive approach often takes a bit longer to deliver a beautiful smile, and the smile may not be a perfect row of straight, white teeth with no imperfections like a denture.
Our skill is honed in finding ways NOT to cut a tooth down to a stump or aggressive surgical approaches in the name of aesthetics. We have no pleasure in having to treat teeth again in 5 or 10 years because of damage that was done to try and achieve an aesthetic aim.
Is it still possible to get a great smile and still maintain good health?
Absolutely, in most cases, it’s not only possible, but in many cases we make a health gain by improving the bite and making teeth easier to clean and maintain, thereby reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
