Cosmetic dentistry: Making Kings Hill’s smiles shine

Where old meets new

Nestled in the South East of England, in the district of Kent lies the quintessentially English market town of West Malling. Full of rural quaintness and charm, it is an area of great historical interest and wonder with many attractions – including the Coldrum Long Barrow, a Neolithic monument thought to be one of the oldest in the UK, and predating Stonehenge by almost 1000 years. However, although the district is steeped in rich history and heritage, it also houses all of the amenities one might expect to find in any 21st century contemporary area of its size. These include some of the most renowned dental practices across the country, and is the place to be for those seeking top quality cosmetic dentistry in Kings Hill.

A dentist, with a difference

One such dental practitioner who has helped the area achieve such a reputation, is One Smile Oral Care. They provide an entire range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, and have been a staple in the Kings Hill community. Established by Dr Ben Mortazavi, the lead practitioner trained in Germany, it is their belief that dental care ought to be catered to the individual needs and requirements of each specific patient. As no set of teeth are identical, it is the One Smile philosophy that no two treatments should be exactly the same. They believe that treatment ought to be tailored to fit the patient, rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach that is favoured by all too many practices across the country. Prior to undertaking any treatment at One Smile Oral Care, patients must first develop a good rapport with a dental practitioner of their choosing, whom they trust. Through informal, lengthy consultations, the basics of each procedure are covered and one is chosen which is best suited to the patient’s needs.

Bringing out the best

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are some of the most popular offered at One Smile Oral Care. These are used primarily to address superficial stains or damage to teeth, and improve their overall appearance – rather than tackle structural or deep-rooted issues. One cosmetic dentistry service which is on offer here is the installation of porcelain veneers. These are thin, ceramic shells that are fused to the front of a patient’s teeth with a powerful adhesive which help make the patient’s teeth look far more cohesive and clean. Veneers are effective in dealing with large gaps in teeth, or in addressing crooked or misshapen teeth, and when attached are virtually undetectable. Another cosmetic dentistry procedure which is on offer at One Smile Oral Care is Zoom Whitening. This is used to instantaneously eradicate any stains or signs of neglect on the surface of teeth, caused by smoking, eating sugary foods or drinking strong drinks such as tea, black coffee or red wine. Zoom Whitening utilises a light-activated bleaching agent and is conducted within the dental practice. The process of undertaking Zoom Whitening initially consists of covering the patient’s teeth with a thin layer of bleaching agent. Then a specialist UV light is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide within the gel, which immediately begins to eradicate any superficial stains or signs of neglect on teeth. Treatment of this nature can be massively beneficial in restoring a patient’s self-esteem and confidence by affording them the ability to smile to their fullest potential, without having to be embarrassed by stains or discolouration.
