Modern dental practice services

Modern dental practices offer much more than just looking after your teeth. The demand for cosmetic treatments has been booming in recent years and so has the availability and range of treatments. There aren’t many problems that can’t be solved with the help of a good dentist.

Many dental practices aim to provide as much of as a complete dental experience as possible, combining the worlds of general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. Smilemakers is one such practice. This dentist in Southampton can provide a wider range of much-used dental treatments and more unusual ones too.

Dental treatments

Every dentist in Southampton will offer regular check-ups as standard. These are probably the most important visits to the dentist. In a check-up, the dentist will check for any signs of damage caused by tooth decay and possible signs of gum disease. If any restorative treatments need to take place then the dentist can book the patient in promptly before problems develop.

As well as looking after the health of the patient’s mouth, the dentist in Southampton can make a person’s teeth look as good as they feel using cosmetic dentistry.

Patients are able to have complete smile makeovers with the wide range of cosmetic treatments on offer at the UK’s modern dental practices.


Another important aspect that could affect a person’s teeth is how straight and aligned they are. Straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When a person chews with straight, equal teeth, the pressure is spread more evenly. This reduces the effects of tooth wear.

When teeth are straight they are also easier to clean as there are fewer places for harmful bacteria to hide.

Braces have come so far since the days of the ‘train track’ brace. There are modern aligners that can be used that can’t even be seen by friends and family.

Treatment times are also greatly reduced thanks to newer techniques and materials being used in the construction of braces.

Implant surgery

Thanks to dental innovations like dental implants, losing a tooth is not the end of the world. The dentist in Southampton can replace any number of missing teeth with dental implants and dentures can even be attached to ensure a secure fit.
