3 Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments in 2019

In comparison to the other branches, cosmetic dentistry is exceptionally popular in present-day London. This range of dentistry focuses on artificially bettering your overall smile with high-quality materials through a range of different treatments. It is important to mention here that cosmetic dental treatments, dental veneers for example, are elective rather than essential to restore the normal functionality of the mouth.

Continue to read on where we will discuss some of the widely popular cosmetic dentistry treatments along with the purposes they serve.

Inlays and Onlays

In dental terminology, these are also called indirect fillings which are made in dental labs from medical-grade composite resin. Dentists usually prescribe these indirect fillings when a tooth suffers from mild to moderate decay, or there’s insufficient tooth structure to support a filling. If the tooth cusp remains more or less unaffected, the inlay is placed straightaway on the tooth surface. An onlay, on the other hand, is used to cover the surface of the affected tooth when the cusp gets affected by the decay. An adhesive dental cement is required to fix the composite resin material to your teeth. Inlays and onlays not only reinforce the strength and life of the diseased tooth but also restore its shape and save it from further decay or disease.

Teeth whitening

These days, the procedure of cosmetic teeth whitening is exceptionally popular. It is basically a bleaching procedure of the teeth that you can avail in-chair at your dentist’s office or at home, using the home kits. Only a registered dentist or a dental hygienist under the prescription of a dentist can provide this dental cosmetic treatment. The in-chair version involves removing tartar and plaque build-ups along with food particles trapped between the teeth. Modern teeth whitening technology has become so improved that now it is also possible to get a lighter shade than the natural colour of the teeth.

Dental implants

It offers the most realistic solution to teeth loss. They not only better how your smile looks but also improve its functionality. Dr. Wahab Shakir, who’s the principal dentist at a reputed private dental practice in London states that though dental implants treatment come under invasive dentistry, the procedure involves minimal pain. A tiny incision is made in your jaws at the place of the missing tooth or teeth. A metal post is then drilled into it, which acts as the supporting network of roots for the implanted teeth. Bio-compatible metals like titanium are used in making this post. Thus, in the course of time, it gets fused to your jawbone and the supporting tissues surrounding it. After the surgical wound has healed up, an artificial crown is placed on top of the post.

Cosmetic dentist at Museum Dental Suites says that these treatments not only help in smile improvement but also boost your self-confidence. Most of the private dental practices that provide these procedures offer easy finance schemes for patients. If you’re interested in getting any of these procedures done, contact a practice nearby today.



reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.

Look your best, feel your best, expect the best.
