Sometimes it can be a struggle to know just which dental procedure you require. There is no shame in needing a little help in determining what you are looking for from your dentists in Glasgow. For common dental health problems, it is best to leave the solutions to the dental professionals. However, when it comes to the cosmetic dental procedures, there are numerous treatments available for different aesthetic ailments that can be a little confusing.

Our experts at the Berkeley Clinic have created this helpful guide to help you know the basics of the most common cosmetic dental procedures to find out which is the best for you.

Dental Braces


If you are looking for ways to straighten your natural teeth, you may be wanting to invest in dental braces. Misaligned teeth are a very common condition seen by many an orthodontist Glasgow. Misalignments can range from under and overbites, to teeth that are starting to overlap one another, to those that are migrating in the gums. All of these problems can be alleviated with the use of braces.

There is a lot of stigma that stays with adults about the use of braces, which can be understandable from teenaged experiences. The thought of dental braces brings to mind the traditional ‘train track’ braces that are commonly used to treat dental patients in their younger teenage years. However, this needn’t be the case. Dentists have developed revolutionary ways to help solve your problems with misaligned teeth.

Clear braces Glasgow are now available at the Berkeley Clinic to give you unmatched durability and fast aligning of your teeth. Inman Aligner braces are some of the most specialised clear braces currently available, and you could benefit from the clear brace difference from day one of use. A clear barrier is placed across the teeth, gently easing them back into their preferred positions in the mouth.

It is a relatively painless process, and where other braces can take up to a year of wear to see differences, our clear adult braces Glasgow are able to help you see results in six months. The six month smiles Glasgow programme offers another alternative with a small nickel titanium wire placed across the teeth for minimal intrusion in the mouth in the form of a retainer. It can be removed for social events and has minimal effect on your smile in day to day wear. Finding your solution for straighter teeth could not be easier.

A dental implant procedure can be both for cosmetic and medical reasons. If you have recently suffered from gum disease resulting in tooth loss, you could be struggling to eat or speak. Dental implants provide a more permanent solution for tooth loss and spaces between teeth than dentures. Where dentures can further irritate gums and fall out of place, dental implants are secured by a titanium root to the base of the natural root itself in the jaw.

With dental implants Glasgow, you are gaining a solution for tooth loss that looks and feels natural. The false teeth placed on the sturdy metal root are available in numerous colours and shapes. This means that no matter your natural teeth, or if you need a few implants around the mouth, you will be able to have a dental implant that does not look out of place in the mouth.

With the right care and attention given to your dental implants, you could see them lasting a number of years. Maintenance is minimal after they have been set in the jaw, and unlike dentures, you do not have to seal them every morning or worry about eating different foods. Want to eat an apple but are worried about your implants? Don’t be! Your implants are entirely secure and you can eat what you want without worry, and feel great about your smile.

Dental Veneers Glasgow


If your teeth do not look how you would wish them to, why not consider dental veneers? These are new surfaces for the teeth that are able to protect the teeth from further damage while providing you with teeth that look brand new, perfectly formed, and as Hollywood white as you want them to be. For teeth whitening, there are gels and treatments available, however the more permanent solution could be to choose veneers.

Dental veneers are made of porcelain or ceramic, making them incredibly strong for prolonged use in the mouth. Your dental practice Glasgow can help you to choose the colour, shape, and material of veneer that would suit your mouth best. Your veneers will be fitted to your teeth usually after two visits, as moulds have to be taken of the teeth before they are able to be created and inserted over the teeth. The end result of your treatment is a brand new smile and teeth that will stay protected for longer.
