If your teeth are starting to look a little tired from the ravishes that the years have done to them, It may be time to think about having a little TLC applied to them and make them sparkle once more. One of the most efficient methods on the market today to cover over discolouration, gaps and cracks and general wear and tear, is to have Lumineers fitted to the surfaces of your teeth, it is so easy to have done too- just ask the Clifton Dental Studio of Bristol who serve the Swindon area. All you have to do is pop along to see your dentist who will then take a cast of your teeth; from this the Lumineers can be made and once they are done, it is just a matter of returning to your dentist and after a quick clean-up, the fittings will be cemented over the original enamel of your teeth and then ‘sealed’ with a heat source. Though not as durable as traditional veneers, Lumineers are great for a quick fix, especially if you go for the CEREC angle that can have you done in an hour. Seeing as no damage is done to your teeth, the process can be reversed whenever you fancy it or just exchanged easily if something goes wrong.
If you fancy staving off the threat of ageing in your teeth, then you can’t go wrong by opting to have porcelain veneers cover up your problems. This treatment has been around for decades, helping people to hide away gaps, cracks, receding gums and the loss in the length of their teeth due to general wear and tear. Getting veneers couldn’t be simpler: book in with your dentist first and then all you have to do is sit back and relax while you are worked on. The enamel has to be removed first and for some people, a local anaesthetic may be required to avoid discomfort and then, a cast will be taken of your teeth. In this session, your dentist will kit you out with dummy veneers for the next couple of weeks until the real thing has been made and sent back to the surgery. Then, it’s a case of removing the ‘dummies’ and cementing in the real ones. The thing that is so amazing about having porcelain veneers fitted is that you are never going to be ready for the moment when you first see your new teeth- it is truly astounding. The porcelain looks so natural in your mouth and yet, all those horrible ageing elements have been eliminated from your smile at the same time- utterly irresistible.

As you start to get older, things will obviously begin to change in your body; you may start to droop in places, other bits may sag and head south for the winter, so you have to work harder to stop all of this from happening. The same can be said for your teeth and for all the time and effort that you put into looking after them, they too may well succumb to the signs of ageing. The most noticeable problems are the receding of the gums, discolouration, loss of length in your teeth due to wear and the outbreak of gaps between your teeth. Fortunately, the world of cosmetic dentistry has got its act together, and can save you from these tell-tale signs that give away your age. With all of these problems, they can be covered up and hidden away with dental veneers. The most popular are made from porcelain, beautifully natural and after a little preparation which involves the removal of the old enamel they are cemented into place, making you pretty again and ready to give you a good 15 years of support. A variation on this is the Lumineer; very thin but they are cemented straight onto the enamel of the teeth. The other noticeable technique and also very popular are composite resin veneers, more commonly know as cosmetic bonding; very cheap, very quick and extremely versatile. With all of these treatments, the results are very rewarding and rejuvenating and just the tonic you need to turn back time. For more information on these treatments, contact the Clifton dental studio in Bristol, because they can advise you on everything you need to know in Weston-super-mare.
It’s a good time for cosmetic dentistry and it seems to be on a very good role right now. New things are being developed out of old things and by doing so, the improvement in dental treatments gets better each day. Take for example the veneer: a great way of covering up the ageing process by cementing a slither of porcelain over a tooth that has had the enamel removed in the preparation process and immediately, you have a remarkable new look. This has also evolved as well and one such derivative of the veneer is the lumineer. This is even thinner than your average veneer because it doesn’t involve shaving off the enamel from the teeth first; the lumineer is simply cemented straight onto the surface of the teeth with little preparation beforehand and this makes it very attractive for the person on the move whose smile is an important ingredient in their work. It can be made and fitted quickly, in an hour if you can find a dentist equipped with CEREC, and because there is no damage done to the teeth in the preparation stage, the procedure can be reversed, giving this treatment a modern disposable feel to it. If this has caught your imagination in Bristol, then contact Clifton Dental for more information.

If you look after them, they should see you into old age, but rest assured that your teeth will look fabulous until then.

People of Bath should be no strangers to porcelain, after all, the Romans left shed loads of the stuff lying around when they finally upped and left. But if you have ever studied it close up and touched it, you will have noticed how beautiful it is and how it gives off an amazing natural hue when light hits it. So, holding that thought in your head for a moment, is that not how your teeth should look and if not, would you like them to? There is no doubt that humans do not age as well as porcelain and that goes for our teeth as well- they can over time become very tired and make you feel the end is around the corner- like the Romans. But help is on hand because there is a gem of a fitting called the porcelain veneer which can invigorate the way you look and smile. This simple, wafer thin fitting has all the natural attributes of porcelain but if you look after it once it is fitted, it will give you great service throughout your life whilst covering up everything that is going wrong in your mouth. The procedure is simple and painless: the dentist must first shave away the enamel on your teeth and then take a mould of what’s left to make the veneers from. This is commonly done in a lab, but in some cases, can be done while you wait. Then, when the fitting is ready, it will be cemented into place on the surface of the teeth, which makes this fragile looking little thing multiply in strength and giving it the durability to confront the forces that go through the mouth on a daily basis. Any further questions you may have about the process should be directed towards Clifton dental, as they will have all the answers.
Porcelain veneers are becoming a more common cosmetic dental procedure for patients from Bath and surrounding areas. Modern techniques and reduced prices are making this popular for many people, not just the rich and famous.
At Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol we frequently use the technique to improve the smiles for people, and with it their lives. This might sound like a bold statement but a smile is very important to people. It provides our patients with increased confidence which can make them better communicators, improving their career paths and their personal interaction. Many people are ashamed of their crooked or chipped teeth and, as a result, keep their mouths closed more than they would like. A porcelain veneer can change all that.
Basically, a porcelain veneer is a custom-made laminate which is attached to the front of a broken tooth to give you a more perfect smile. Porcelain is a ceramic material with similar properties to your natural teeth making it an ideal and realistic alternative. The surface is quite impervious so it is ideal for fighting off further staining and decay from sugars, wine and cigarettes. This does not mean you can stop brushing your teeth though!
It is possible to choose the shade of your veneer to match the natural colour of your teeth so they won’t look out of place in your mouth. They are also more long lasting than composite veneers, which makes them a popular choice in today’s dental market place. They can last up to 15 years compared to seven years for composite versions.
Before they can be added, some material is removed from the teeth so it can make your teeth more sensitive, but compared to crowns the shaping required is not so extensive. All in all, porcelain veneers are an excellent step to a perfect smile.
